Daniel Cook

Spending a few days at home over the last week has made me realize how wide the gulf is between good children's television (Arthur, Little Bear) and bad children's television (Barney, This is Daniel Cook).

Daniel Cook has an interesting premise - follow a kid around as he visits a firehall, goes to the zoo, flies a plane, digs a ditch with a backhoe, etc. The problem with the show is that the kid is as annoying as they come.

It would be neat to see this show carry on as the kid gets older.

This is Daniel Cook...

  • drinking too much Southern Comfort
  • puking all over the couch
  • reading Glamour magazine under the covers
  • smoking dope
  • driving around in his father's 1979 Chevy Malibu, listening to Van Halen on the car stereo and nailing a cheerleader in the back seat.

Could be entertaining.
