Hopeless Pictures

Hopeless PicturesI hadn’t heard of the new animated series, HOPELESS PICTURES, which premiered last Friday on IFC. After watching (or more appropriately, enduring) the clip on the show’s website, I’m quite glad I hadn’t heard of the show. It’s simply another example of a radio show masquerading as animated cartoon, and there’s nothing more infuriating than a cartoon where the animation is an afterthought to everything else. At least the show has an appropriate title: pictures that are subservient to dialogue are truly hopeless. There’s a review of the show at SLATE.
