Second Last Month!
For this month’s challenge, I decided that I would try and tackle a television police show. I’m not the biggest fan of police procedurals or any type of crime show, so I had to try and find something that I would like but also still challenge my comfort zone. So immediately dismissing Brooklyn 99 as an option (because I love that show) I tried to find something that was both gritty and funny.

It’s been a long time since I wrote one of these and in that time a lot of things have caught my attention. I thought I’d go easy on myself and stick to the three item format. So the below items have either been important throughout the year or are just vague enough for me to include.
Home Adventures with Tip and Oh
I have an, at times, very embarrassing obsession with cartoons. While I may enjoy watching the shows, I’m not always forthcoming with admitting it to people. However with Home Adventures with Tip and Oh, I will shout my love from the rooftops!
Based on the Dreamworks movie, Home, the show expands the story, characters, and universe of the movie. Do not judge the cartoon by the movie, where Home was somewhat vapid and uninspiring, Home Adventures with Tip and Oh is a humourous and sweet show.

What The Avengers could never be… or would want to be.
About: The Hulu original, The Awesomes, is an animated show that follows the lives of a rag-tag group of superheros. The main protagonist, Professor Dr. Jeremy Awesome or ‘Prock’, is the son of world famous superhero, Mr. Awesome.
After Mr. Awesome retires, Prock decides to take over and run the superhero team, the Awesomes. However things don’t go as planned as after Prock takes over, all the competent heroes leave the group. The show follows Prock and his best friend Harry Strong (Muscleman) as they try and find other supers to join the team and stay relevant.
Created and produced by Seth Myer and Mike Shoemaker, the show is very well written, very funny and an original spin on the superhero genre.
Why: I have caught a few snippets of the show on The Comedy Channel and wanted to watch from the beginning.
Best bits: The villain of the show, Dr. Giuseppe Malocchio, is a big draw for me. Bill Hader shines in this role of the charismatic and odd bad guy.
The show is also very self-referential. With characters often drawing attention to certain plot points and commenting on them. Once again, the show is very well written with the whole series following a main story arch that is glimpsed in the first episode and concludes in the last.
Thoughts so far: I have just finished the first season and I am eager to watch more. Bring on season two!
