Storyline

Andy French is an aspiring cartoonist who has trouble holding a job or a girlfriend even while he rooms with two other eccentric roommates in an apartment in the Mission Hill area of the city of Cosmopolis. The fact that he has to house his obnoxiously precocious younger brother, Kevin, is no help. However, this quartet of disparate individuals manages to struggle through life's bizarre trials even as they learn to get along. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@home.com>

Funny Show with a Heart
4 August 2002 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

From some of the creative minds behind the Simpsons comes Mission Hill. It's a great show that reminds me of real life as a young schmuck in the city. The subtle, but gut-busting situations make for great viewing. I guess the show used to be on the WB, I guess, but it's found its niche as part of Cartoon Network's Sunday night "Adult Swim" block. I wish them many years of success.
