John Callahan's Quads: Freak Parade [Import]
Customers who bought this item also bought
Paralyzed in a car accident at the age of 21, underground cartoonist John Callahan parlays his injury into a darkly humorous comic strip that skewers the politically correct view of people with disabilities. Callahan brings his controversial style to the television screen with the animated series QUADS!, which centers around the adventures of sex-crazed, alcoholic quadriplegic Reilly O'Reilly. Crippled after being run over by a speeding millionaire, Reilly's settlement earns him a mansion which he uses as a home base for his personal circle of handicapped ne'er-do-wells: his hippie girlfriend Franny, gay physical therapist Spalding, drunk bartender Griz, blind musician Fontaine, hook-armed masseuse Lefty, and disembodied head Blazer. Together, the morally challenged, self-proclaimed "Magnificent Severed" engage in outrageous get-rich schemes involving everything from the Special Olympics to omelet sightings of the Virgin Mary. Twisted, hilarious, and utterly unique, the animated series is introduced in this first volume of episodes: "Maimed Manor," "Bad Manors," "1-800-GIMP," and "The Fraud Quad."

I believe the Canadians and the Australians were the only ones with the balls to put this show on.
I thought it was one of the funniest things I had seen on TV in North America.
It will appeal to those of us who appreciate dark humor, being that it is extremely politically incorrect and is sure to offend the majority.
I can never see an American network carrying this due to its nature and the fact that we have become one of the most uptight countries in the world when it comes to what is exceptable humor. Just Look at Mr. Stern going to Satellite.
John Callahan is an extremely funny and talented guy.
I am sure he catches a lot of flack for his work, poking fun at someone in a wheelchair is a risky premise for a show, but it is worth mentioning that in the real world Mr. Callahan is also confined to a wheelchair.
I will be pre-ordering this DVD....
