The Goode Family
"The Goode Family," the new animated comedy from Mike Judge, hits the small screen in what may or may not be considered a summer dump (Hint: It probably is). That doesn't mean that it isn't funny, just that TV networks, like movie studios don't have a clue what to do with Judge's sense of humor.
Of the show, ABC says, "Meet Gerald and Helen Goode, a couple who live by the motto WWAGD ("What Would Al Gore Do?"). Gerald, a college administrator, and Helen, a community activist, are determined to obliterate their carbon footprint on the planet: They're zealous vegans, they drive a hybrid, and they recycle everything possible. Even the family dog, Che, is vegan. In the words of Helen, all the Goodes want to do is buy organic apples and call minorities by their right names. But despite their best efforts, something always goes haywire with their politically correct plans."
