I just tried to watch it, aaaand they were a little heavy-handed with the "this a commentary on American race relations" thing. And it looked like they lifted some stuff they used as plot devices right from the Civil Rights Movement ("Atrian 7" vs. "Little Rock 9"). So I gave up after like 20 minutes.
Did it get better? Did miss some ultra-sucktasmicness? I must know. Without having to actually watch the rest of the episode.
