Oscar’s efforts against the tyranny of lawn ornaments signifies the real reason that this show is successful.  Love the music whenever the gnome takes center stage.  It’s about things we all think about, but only Oscar does.  Brent plays his goofy premise for all it’s worth.  Only a game of trivia could bring a town like Dog River together.  This show is comfort food for only slightly above average intellects, except for those who understand all of what Wanda knows.
