Anyone who knows me knows that I have a bit of an anger management issue. No, I’m not on the verge of going postal, but I find that, as I get older, I’m less and less tolerant of stupid people and things. So, when the cartoon series Dan Vs hit my inbox, I was interested, to say the least.
You see, in Dan Vs, Dan also has an anger issue, and in each episode something annoys him and he swears revenge on whatever that thing is….so each episode is Dan’s quest for vengeance on something….it’s very entertaining. And, while Dan might swear revenge on every day things like the dentist or ninjas, Dan also swears revenge on things like the wolf man or the entire state of New Mexico…and he’s watching you too, Arizona!
Dan Vs is one of the best cartoons since The Simpsons, and while it’s generally on a children’s cable station, it’s really not aimed completely at kids, there’s a lot of stuff here for adults too. Dan is joined in each quest for vengeance by his friend Chris, usually against the wishes of Chris’ wife, Elise. Starring the voices of Curtis Armstrong and Dave Foley, I think that Dan Vs is one of the funniest cartoons I’ve seen in years, bringing a bit of the old cartoon style back, with the constant threat of violence (in a very Road Runner kind of way), while still making us laugh at the absurdity of it all!
I’m giving Dan Vs 4 out of 4 cigars, after seeing this, I didn’t feel like the angriest guy around, I felt like I was a bit less angry than Dan…after all, I’ve never swore revenge on a whole state…cities maybe, but not a whole state!
