Did you ever wonder about the secret lives of the little people who came with your Lego® set? Apparently Q. Allan Brocka did more than just wonder — he created a whole TV series about the lives of Rick and Steve, their cat Pussy, and their various friends and neighbors in West Lahunga Beach. The show is so funny that I missed several punchlines because the audience was already laughing so hard I couldn't hear the dialogue. The characters are voiced by an impressive cast, including Wilson Cruz (My So-Called Life, [fiction] Party Monster), Alan Cumming (X-Men 2, Cabaret, Reefer Madness: the Musical), Billy West (Dr. Zoidberg on Futurama), Margaret Cho, Mitch Morris (Another Gay Movie), and Peter Paige (Queer As Folk [U.S.]). Strongly recommended. Watch for it on Logo, iTunes, and DVD!
