An all-cynical, all-evil absurdist variety show that parodies the classic educational PBS shows of the 1970s, made up of old cartoons and educational films, children, and puppets from one's worst nightmares.

Joe Lo Truglio,
Like Daria, O'Grady is a great show that The N audience just didn't get
This show revolves around four friends in a town that strange things happen. Think of it as almost a blend of X-Files and Saved By The Bell. The show is made by Soup 2 Nuts, the creators of Home Movies. They both have a lot in common, like their outlandish plots and obscure humour(much of the script is improvised giving the show a real candid feel and gives the comedy a layer of depth and subtlety which makes it very re-watchable).
Unfourtuanatly, it looks as though they aren't going to make any more episodes. The N's teenage audience tends to like things that they pretend that they can relate to(Degrassi, RFR, Instant Star... though Instant Star is good for different reasons). Much like how Daria was treated(which was poorly, for those who don't remember), O'Grady was moved around until nobody watched it anymore. It's still a great show and can be watched on the-n.com
