Review of Wonkette

Wonkette has always been about the agonized,
ecstatic relationship of individuals and
institutions, and works as well as it does by
keeping everything believable and as natural as
possible, even when certain comedic situations
approach ludicrous territory: "I'm in love. Her
name is Wonkette. She was left back. Twice. Once
I almost touched her shoulder in the middle of a
pop quiz." Now that’s a joke clever in its
knowingness about corporate synergy! Cute but not
overly cuddly, there's an authenticity to the
relationships in Wonkette that makes it a comedy
worth meeting.
