O'Grady, Season 1Closed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
High school can be stranger than fiction, but O'Grady is even stranger than high school. In The N's first animated original series, four self-involved teens try to live ordinary lives in a town afflicted by the Weirdness, a paranormal annoyance that tends to highlight everyone's problems — or just make 'em extra complicated. With its dry, sly sense of humor, this half-hour show proves that living in a bad Twilight Zone episode would probably be a lot like going to high school in real life.

I NEVER watch The N or Noggin, but O*Grady is an acception. It's hilarious! However, if you're planning on buying these epidoes just to watch on your computer (as opposed for a video iPod) I would suggest you go to the N's website, where they not only have streaming video of every episode in it's completion, but also ottakes and unnused storyboard ideas as well. But for an iPod: definately worth the money!
A Wonderful Comedy You Must See
Please do not be fooled by the preview. The preview really does no justice to the show. You don't get what the show is really about from the preview. This show is guaranteed to make you laugh. Trust me. If you have Comcast, go to On Demand. At least one episode of O'Grady is always on On Demand. You can preview it and if you really enjoy it order the season. You definitely won't regret it.
From the same people that brought us Home Movies, Dr. Katz, and the oddly endearing Science Court, O'Grady is chockfull of rye humor, great guest voices, and relatively obscure references that strike the perfect balance between being loved by those who get them and unobtrusive to those who don't. Like The Adventures of Pete and Pete before it, it's a kids' (well, early teens) show that expects more from its audience and is much better for it, and in doing so has a much broader appeal than most. Having said that, however, it definitely appeals to a very specific kind of viewer, with a kind of wink-wink nudge-nudge comedy that some might find arrogant and obtuse. Basically, if you like offbeat comedy, quirky animation (the backrounds are sometimes beautifully painted and given a lot of depth while the characters are kept almost two-dimensional with Flash animation), and the oddly appealing voice of H. Jon Benjamin, you'll love O'Grady.
