A good friend of mine told me about Tripping the Rift, and highly recommended it. Word of Mouth is not the way I usually get my recommendations, although I get many recommendations that way. Most times somebody will give me something based on their experience, or will pass it on to me after they have done reading or watching it.
Tripping the Rift is an adult cartoon, with a story line similar to Firefly. A band of space privateer/smugglers who constantly get into trouble with the leaders of the “good” Confederation and “evil” Dark Clown Empire. Chode – a horny purple alien – causes most of the trouble, which ends up being resolved by him and his misfit crew: teenage lizard, sex android, gay robot, and an ugly cow/hippocentaur. Nothing is sacred, which makes it all the funnier.
It is fun light viewing, and definitely not suitable for children. It probably won’t make you smarter.

Joss Whedon – Buffy the Vampire, Angel and FireFly – did a musical version of Buffy, “Once More With Feeling” which might be where he got the idea for the musical series Doctor Horrible The three-part Doctor Horrible series stars Neil Patrick Harris, who we know from How I Met Your Mother, and Nathan Fillion, who we know from FireFly and Buffy.
