I dunno--I see either Patrick Nagel or The Crying Game, see for yourself. Goth Glam* bedroom eyes don't scream "Reno 911 and Matlock reruns" to me (more like "O'Hare strip club"), but generally I like it--TV is so focused-grouped to death that I'm impressed no one at WGN America was, you know, trying.


* Update: Sorry, not thinking. The green is closer to Bowie/recent Michael Stipe.
