Adventure Time: cartoon. stars the guy who does the voice of Bender from Futurama. he plays a talking dog, who hangs with his human friend. together they have wacky (seemingly drug-fueled) adventures in a kalidoscope world. is it good? i can't tell. i watched a disc of it. 8 eps and i'm still not sure. Shameless (USA version): dramedy? completely dysfunctional family lives hand to mouth, struggling but surviving by usually doing unto others. many musically embedded montages. William Macy plays the drunken loser father. cast contains one of everything. hot teen daughter, good looking son, gay son, black chick who dates white guy, etc. there's a UK version that came first i haven't seen. i've watched a disc of this USA version. 4 eps. i just can't tell if i'm entertained by it. but blockbuster has already sent the next disc so i guess i'll continue.
