    Duffy on KCCI

    is horrible. I used to kind of like his DM register captions. On channel 8 I think his stuff is dumb. Has anyone seen his stuff lately on KCCI?

    Channel 8 in general is slipping in my eyes. Stacy Horst and Andy Garman stink. However, the Duffy stuff is even worse.

    Re: Duffy on KCCI

    It is actually a public service that KCCI is doing. Once you see the Duffy cartoon thing, it is your cue to immediately change the channel to WHO.

    That duffy thing is just painful.

    Re: Duffy on KCCI

    That kind of stuff appeals to the "intellectual elite" and plays well in printed media but not so as presented on KCCI. I always thought Duffy's play on issues hit home in the DMReg but it loses its appeal as you watch it unfold on screen. By the time he gets to the end of the drawing, you already have it figured out and for some reason it seems lame.

    Re: Duffy on KCCI

    Then he makes a coment about it trying to show you what he is saying in the peice. Part of Duffy's old stuff was you had to figure it out if it was a little over the top. Now it's just terrible.

    Re: Duffy on KCCI

    I loved his stuff in the Rag, sounds like this is a far cry from that.

    Re: Duffy on KCCI

    They'd be MUCH better off if they would just show the finished product for 10 seconds and let everyone think about it. The drawing and commentary are painful and detract from the cartoon.

    Hard to imagine really bad TV being compressed into 30 seconds but they've managed to do it.


    Walking on water is easy. Just do it in December when it's frozen.

    You can tell KCCI doesn't care for the cyclones

    Couldn't agree more.
