| Post-Mod Comic Silliness
First things first - this is a silly show. It's full of lots of comic and film references, and the plot makes the Adam West series of Batman look gritty. But allusions to CBBC simply aren't fair - while it retains a lighthearted, fast paced cartoon style, the show is packed with in-jokes that require the viewer to know a thing or two about the genres it parodies.

It isn't elitist - you can probably enjoy the show without grasping the references - but I think it's fair to say the reviewer who felt it best suited to children's television hadn't picked them up.

As has been mentioned, it helps if you've read "Get the Freebies" and "Tankgirl" in particular, but there's loads on offer here even if you haven't.
