4 WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18, 2001 APPLAUSE THE SALINA JOURNAL "Vne Oblongs" take sit corns to a new level By DIANE HQLLOWAY Cox News Service AUSTIN, Texas — Family sitcoms aren't dead. They're just getting stranger. It's a long road from "Father Knows Best" to "Malcolm in the Middle," and an even longer stretch to "The Oblongs," a bizarre new series from cult cartoonist Angus Oblong. The animated Oblongs make the Simpsons look like the Hirxtables. Anyone with delicate sensibilities is likely to be turned off by the language and antics of the Oblongs, but those who chortle at crude social satire will welcome this twisted family fun. The show airs on the WB Sundays at 6:30 p.m. CDT, opposite "Malcolm in the Middle" on Fox. Time to fire up the VCR. What's so weird about the Oblongs? Bob, the optimistic patriarch, has no legs or arms, not that there's anything wrong with that. He works at the poison-producing Globocide Industries. His wife. Pickles, is a chain-smoking alcoholic who wears an assortment of wigs because her hair fell out years ago. Their children include conjoined twins Biff and Chip, who can't agree on anything; cute little Beth, who has a sausage like growth sprouting from her head; and son Milo, who has only one hair. Milo also has a myriad of behavioral problems and has been on every drug from Ritalin to Rogaine. The WB's ad slogan is, "Don't just watch. Stare." Milo and his unusual pals in the Valley are constantly at odds with the snobby Debbies, a group of bubble-coiffed girls who look alike, and other denizens of the HiU. The top Hill snobs are the Klimers, headed by George, Bob's heartless boss at Globocide. The laser-focused satire takes on environmental issues, class warfare and a host of other social ills. The Hill folks live high above the Valley, where all the rich folks' toxic and human waste winds up. In one of the three episodes mailed out to critics, MHO longs to leave his "school for the pathologically high-spirited" in the Valley and go to "normal" school on the Hill. When his father loses health insurance for his family and can't afford to pay for the special school, Milo gets his wish and quickly falls in love with Yvette, a Debbie who turns out to be an alien. Bad luck. In another episode, which begins with Pickles reading "9 1/2 Weeks" to Milo as a bed time story, Milo is expelled from school for hyperactive behavior, and the Oblongs decide a pet might calm him down. The search starts with a himgry dolphin and winds up with a lovable pup that becomes a test aiumal. (This one actually has a semi-sweet ending.) The off-kilter scripts come from writer/executive producer Jace Richdale, formerly of "The Simpsons." Familiar voices belong to Will Farrell as Bob, Jean Smart as Pickles and Pamela Segall Adlon (Bobby on "King of the Hill") as Milo. The quirky hmnor isn't for everyone, and certainly not for young children, but viewers with a fondness for strange stuff may get a kick out of "The Oblongs." A big mama s revenge By SAMANTHA BENNETT Pittsburgh Post-Gazette GOOD IN BED by Jennifer Werner (Pocket Books. $24.95) What would you do if you opened a national women's magazine to discover your boyfriend had written a colunm about your relatior\ship? Caimie Shapiro is a twen- tysomething writer for a large daily newspaper in Philadelphia (like her creator, Jennifer Weiner of The Philadelphia Inquirer), and as this fii"st novel opens, she has been taking a three-month "break" from her boyfriend, Bruce Guberman. Bruce has just landed a new gig as a columnist for a Cosmopolitan-type pubUcation, and his very first column nearly causes Cannie to choke right at her desk. "Loving a larger woman," Bruce writes, "is an act of courage in our world." Cannie, at size 16, heavier than her longtime lover, has been outed in all her insecurity and self-doubt. Even though the essay is sincere and often sweet, Cannie is furious and shamed by this very public betrayal. It doesn't help that the column is called "Good in Bed," which seems to give Bruce far too much credit, as far as she's concerned. StiU, when she finds that Bruce has turned the "break" into a break-up, Carmie is heartbroken. Weiner paints the ache of lost love and the frantic need to win a wayward lover back with wrenching vividness. Caimie's relationship with Bruce is realistically complex, and women will recognize only too well the pitifully missed and desired boyfriend who, revealed in flashbacks, wasn't really particularly appealing. While the novel begins as a more heartfelt, plus-size "Bridget Jones' Diary," it becomes a course of therapy for Cannie, who must learn how to get over the other man in her life, her fa­ ther. More painful is the progressive revelation of her disastrous estrangement from her father, whose abuse and abandonment emerge as the source of her low self-esteem and feelings of rejection. Caimie's journey includes a somewhat imlikely foray to HoUywood with her new and glamoroiis friend, movie starlet Maxi Ryder, who whisks her off to L.A., where she is transformed and finds celebrities, idyUic hospitality and a whole lot of money. And this is where we leave the cleverly observed realities of relationships and journalism and enter the realm of fantasy and wish-fulfillment. Caimie's extremes of luck seem incredible even for fiction: Her triumphant life in Los Angeles is every unattractive girl's sweetest dream, and what happens on her return is every mother's worst lughtmare. She becomes someone we no longer recognize, and a book that began with so many things to relate to shrinks into a foreign black hole.
