Every now and then a screenwriter brings some social discord through humour that expresses our love of those we share the planet with. A case in point is the recently broadcast series Animal Control. A fresh view of human interaction with those we care for, care about and all the rest that come with colonizing their homestead. Oh, did I express a point of view?
Check it out and comment below.
“A group of local animal control workers’ lives are complicated by the fact that animals are simple, but humans are not. Leading the crew is Frank, an opinionated, eccentric animal control officer who may not have gone to college but is still the most well-read person in the room. In his past life as a cop, Frank tried to expose corruption in his department, but his efforts got him fired, leaving him cynical and curmudgeonly. Despite his rough exterior, he is blessed with an almost superhuman ability to understand animals.”
Created by Bob Fisher, Rob Greenberg and Dan Sterling. Starring Joel McHale, Vella Lovell, Michael Rowland, Ravi V. Patel and Grace Palmer. Check out the music, composed by Nick Urata.

A satire on our societal affiliations with ourselves and the animals we impact – Great stuff!
