In all fairness, I think Jaime is probably quite correct in his assessment. I hadn't really thought of it that way but it does make sense the way he explains it. I suppose that a show is meant for a certain type of audience and not another, similar to personal tastes in music. I'd equate Judge's art style as the visual equivalent of grunge rock - neither of which will I ever develop a taste for.

Sorry, but if something is this undeniably ugly, I can't watch it, and I have never been able to sit through an entire episode. Beavis & Butthead was just as bad. They barely qualify as a cartoon. Mike Judge should stick to live-action.
