"Bertolt Brecht... suggested that a play should not cause the spectator to identify emotionally with the characters" Andy definitely achieves that in every episode of 7SD.

Cliff, I think the Alienation Effect of which you speak does not include the audience DETESTING one of the characters, which is what Andy achieves. Even in the Resistable Rise of Arturo Ui, the Hitler character is nowhere near as repellant as the BreckmanMan.

@Marcel M. : Well, I've read that 'Audience Alienation Principle' is a mistranslation (like 'the idiocy of rural life'), but if we ignore that, Andy might well be King of the Brechtians („der Brechtschekönig”? ...„Brechtschen[s]könig”?). I mean, alienate an FMU audience, that's champion, in a Darwin Award sort of way.

I figured the whole thing with the graphic novel was to set up week 1 7SD's bit with the bear, which was in turn so people could feign offense at it, thus setting up the Andy soaking in week 2. Grand plan, right?

For all the psychoanalysts out there,

Funny we are talking about 7SD. Last night I dreamt about it.

I was during the recording of a show long time ago. I was friends with the producer so somehow they let me in to see behind the scenes. The show was going to be about a box match stunt. The background music was played live by an unknown musician at the time (which was Kurt Cobain). He looked nothing like him. He actually looked like a woman. The show was canceled because the box ring couldn't be deliver in the set. It was too expensive. Andy Breckman went home early in that episode.
