This 2 season series is based on the newspaper comic strip.

Scott Adams was the first stipper to put his email address and do a newsletter. He marketed the hell out of the cartoon.

The tv series however was  different thing.

Part of the problem is that the strip is too often like being at work, so it’s not really an escape from that world in a tv cartoon version. a printed comic gets to the zap point in the context of other comics that create a sense of balance of work and life and perspective.

well. not exactly, the comics pages in the newspapers remain too white and too male – not only as most of the artists, but most of the characters.

a big part of why newspapers failed was because they didn’t capitalize on the asset that the comics page was.

the one place people could count on the paper to make them smile instead of the paranoia and stress the rest of the paper induces.

anyway, there were 2 episodes that jumped out at me: – well concepts raised and they are:
