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>

Great Show!
19 October 2002 | by (In A Confined Space) – See all my reviews

"Mission Hill" is a great show! Set in a city that could be New York, Los Angeles or even San Antonio, a twentysomething tries to carve a place for himself in the world only to have it invaded by his younger brother. Throw in a hodgepodge of offbeat characters, much intellectual thought, interesting plot lines, and an animation style that uses mixed-up color schemes, you have a worthwhile show on your hands. Too bad it never made on the WB, but thanks to CN and "Adult Swim", it is has a home of it's own. Grade A+
