At long last FW is finally addressing “real life” concerns, like the ones “young people today” face each and every day. No, no one was diagnosed with anything but Pete and Boy Lisa have, for the very first time, expressed an actual plausible concern. Mark this day down!
Chester is a somewhat contrary fella there, you know? Just two days ago he was cracking wise about abandoning the lifelong principles his dream was built upon if it’d be profitable, but today all of a sudden he’s not in it for the money. It can’t be both there, Thomas. It’s also sort of jarring to see Chester…a multi-millionaire, mind you…expressing shock and surprise when Pete and Boy Lisa dare to inquire about money. He literally had weeks to prepare for this meeting, did he seriously believe money wouldn’t be mentioned? What a dolt. As I mentioned a few days ago, the inconsistency of the Chester character indicates that BatYak is all out of ideas here and just throwing things against his whiteboard to see what (ahem) sticks.
I am assuming that after they take the Atomic Comics gig and Chester assumes the Brady role they’ll both end up toiling in misery in the depths of Chester’s comic book mill, only pausing to daydream about what it must have been like to be a screenwriter and storyboarder “back in the day” and the entire Pete and Boy Lisa saga will finally come full circle and end up butting its head on its own ass into infinity like some sort of really dull perpetual motion contraption that’s nothing but a monument to its own uselessness. Or maybe Atomic Comics will be a huge success and Pete & Boy Lisa will win an award made of Belgian chocolate, then fly back to Ohio for some delicious pizza. Anything and nothing is always possible with FW.
