It's one of those shows with a lot of kid friendly parts with several very adult situations thrown in.

But except for being a little more real/serious at times than the average Marvel movie, if they can handle those, this should be fine.

Watched the first episode and enjoyed it. Then went and read the first 6 issues of the comic online. It’s very, very different.

re: Sweet Tooth - Netflix
This show is about a dear boy with horns (like a demon) that is indoctrinated by his "Pubba" to be afraid of people after the world has been depopulated by a virus, except when it isn't convenient for the story. The boy enlists a black guy to fight his battles for him, which always seem to be against white guys with southern accents. The black guy is a drug addict and he and the boy rob a security train for drugs and assault an officer. People keep talking about "Abbott's America" which is ham-fisted attempt to equate this world with "Trump's America".

There is a b-plot about an "Indian" doctor with really curly hair that looks like brown-face who is trying to help his wife who is apparently addicted to consuming the pineal gland of humans, which sounds a lot like adrenochrome just substituting the gland. The audience is supposed to feel bad for this couple as they murder a neighbor out of desperation to keep their lies from being discovered.

Relevant Information:
Pineal Gland

Adrenochrome - the white rabbit

More Relevant information:
The term "Grand Poobah" was used recurringly on the television show The Flintstones as the name of a high-ranking elected position in a secret society, the Loyal Order of Water Buffaloes. The main characters, Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble, were members of the lodge. The lodge is a spoof of secret societies and men's clubs like the Freemasons, the Shriners, the Elks Club and the Moose Lodge.

Great show and looking forward to season 2. Didn’t really take anything nefarious away from it like the post above suggests

My biggest complaint is about the other hybrids. They did a very good job with the hybrid babies and with Gus and the pig girl. But for the rest of the ones they showed, they just used animal costumes that look like they're from Broadway musicals.

re: Sweet Tooth - Netflix
I am on episode 5 I think. My least favorite part of the show by far(besides Will Forte getting murked so quickly) is the Animal Army. Very cringey. Also, they made Yellowstone to look like Glacier, but whatever. Still a pretty enjoyable show.

Anyone else catch that shot of “ Tommy Jepperd DT - LSU” on the tv at the Dr’s house?


Yes, sure did. I'm on episode two. He's the big black dude that Sweet Tooth attaches to when he leaves the park. I'm wondering if there are more LSU easter eggs in the show later on.

So I think it is pretty much a given that the doctors horse is a hybrid?

Was hoping this was a show about Twisted Metal. I don't know if any of you played twisted metal black, but some of the ending sequences were fricking crazy:

Twisted Metal Black Endings

Twisted Metal Two Endings

They need to make this a show... ETA Looks like they are

It’s kind of crazy that USA Today ran a front-page ad for this show that looked like a news story (it says “advertisement” realllly small toward the top):

Love this comic. I never finished it though, because I lost interest in comics overall before I got to the last few books. I need to dust off my old copies and give it a reread, but first I will watch the show. I do hope it does the books justice
