This review is from: The Adventures of Pete & Pete - Season 2 (DVD)
I used to work at this TV station in Gainesville. On Sundays, crawling to my (volunteer) job after endless nights of debauchery, I would sit and insert tapes of the MacNeil Lehrer Report for whoever happened to be up watching the local university channel at 6 through 12 on Sunday morning. I can tell you I was probably the only student in the whole town awake at that time. Case in point: many, many were the times I fell asleep and missed my cues by 15 minutes or more. No one called. No one wrote.
Anyway, I had a lot of time on my hands. I watched Pete and Pete and Rocco's Modern Life. When your children are of age, make them watch these shows. The kind of kids you want don't need to watch reality TV or play with realistic superhero dolls. They need to watch Artie. They need to see what Iggy Pop looks like dressed up. They need to see Michael Stipe hand a kid ice cream. And don't get me started on Deborah Harry and Juliana Hatfield. They need to learn that the point of Barbecue ribs is to get a little messy.
Every so often, you run into a Pete and Pete fan. Cherish those moments. Share your Petunia tats with your most beloved friends. Strike a strongest man in the world pose and be good to your little Vikings. I think it's safe to say the world needs it quite badly.
