Fox's Napoleon Dynamite - TV Review
Voices of Jon Heder, Aaron Ruell, Tina Majorino, Diedrich Bader, Jon Gries.
I actually liked this show. It's better than Bob's Burgers or The Cleveland Show or Allen Gregory; it's actually a very suitable replacement for the gaping hole where King of the Hill once resided. Most of the original actors are back to provide the voices, and I actually chuckled out loud at a couple jokes.
The show is true to the spirit of the movie, and the universe is slightly expanded, and allowed to go to places where only cartoons can go. (Like Kip being an expert on stilts.) It makes a good pairing with The Simpsons on Sunday night.
