One Thumb Sideways
I saw my first episode of the second season of Yo Gabba Gabba! today. I mean, Samson saw his first episode of the second season of Yo Gabba Gabba! today. The jury is waaaaaaaay out. Just a few minor tweaks and a retooling of the "let's go back and remember what we did today" section, plus these awful giant puppets in a couple of live action sequences, a la The Banana Splits, but it didn't feel right. Ever since I gave up the Today Show (there was no way having the TV on that much was OK for Samson), Yo Gabba Gabba! was the only TV we had on when Samson was awake, and even that's only 20 minutes or so a day. But when we moved to new house, we got rid of extravagant, expensive cable and switched to basic, so no more Noggin. No more PBS Sprout. It's basic cable for this financially prudent family. And after today's reunification with DJ Lance Rock and Co., I'm not as sad about it. Still a little sad--I do love me some Brobee.
