OPB To Air Buster's Lesbian Adventure
I mentioned earlier how the U.S.'s new education secretary denounced PBS spending public money on a cartoon with lesbian characters. The producers of the show at WGBH, thanks to a great deal of public support, have decided that, despite PBS not distributing it, they're going to release the show to any public TV station that wants it. OPB plans on broadcasting it.
I greatly respect OPB for airing this, however, they've decided to run the episodes on Sunday February 6 at 10:30pm and Tuesday, February 8 at 4:30am -- two of the worst times imaginable for a kid's show (the usual episodes of "Postcards From Buster" run weekdays at 3:30pm and Saturdays at 8am). I commend them for running the episodes, but it's pointless if you're not doing it at a time where a kid won't even see it. Even with its brief exploration into lesbianism, it's still a children's show, folks.
