There's a promising show coming on UPN called "Game Over." It's an all-CGI show about a family that lives in a world of video games. The father is a race-car driver, the mother is a Lara Croft-like action heroine, the family pet is a freaky monster, and the neighbor is a kung-fu fighter. The concept is sound, although the commercial didn't look too funny. One thing that worries me is that the kids are normal. Why go halfway? Why not make the son a skateboarder and the daughter a Barbie-like character? We'll see.
