I tried... (Wonderfalls)

I did! I even put the VCR on to tape the Wonderfalls premiere while I was watching. I could see where they were going with the show, too, but...something about the tone just grated across my nerves like you wouldn't believe. I only made it to the fainting. The correct adjective is eluding me. The first one that came to mind is "twee," but that's not it. Neither, quite, is "precious." "Droll" was what didn't get accomplished...perhaps "arch" in the most negative sense is what it struck me as. The way Dennis Miller can be funny for fifteen minutes and then you just want to punch him in the face.

Perhaps the lead actress should not have holed up in her house and watched Daria on infinite loop for days?

Anyway, I'll give it another shot later. Maybe I just wasn't in the right mood.
