Gosnell: A Review

Over at TAC.

Many look askance at an adult who openly proclaims interest in shows such as My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, The Lion Guard, Phineas and Ferb, or the latest animated release from Japan. How can grown men and women find anything of worth in cartoons meant for kids? Aren’t such stores bland, puerile, and unimaginative?

Well no, not in most cases. In fact, there are many I could recommend to a fellow adult without the slightest trace of embarrassment.
