The problem with Swingtown

Note: This was originally posted August 5th, but was mistakenly filed not as a blog post, but as a separate page.

“Suppose there’s a brown calf and a big brown dog, and an artist is
making a picture of them. What is the main thing that that artist has got
to do? He has got to paint them so you can tell them apart the minute you
look at them, hain’t he? Of course. Well, then, do you want him to go and
paint both of them brown? Certainly you don’t. He paints one of them
blue, and then you can’t make no mistake.” — Mark Twain, Tom Sawyer Abroad

The problem with Swingtown (isn’t the fact that I’m watching it at all, hush you) is that two of the male leads just look too much alike. Any moment that they’re not in immediate context, I lose track of who’s who.

Time to paint one of ’em blue.
