Macbeth the Usurper

Go Diego Go

Hers Truly was watching Strawberry Shortcake for a good, long stretch. Hers Truly now likes watching Go Diego Go. 

Go Diego Go makes Strawberry Shortcake look like Shakespeare. Where Go Diego Go is formulaic to the extreme, and reuses all its footage extensively, Strawberry Shortcake was actually gosh-dern entertaining. They never reused footage. They had new songs every episode. The plots made sense. The characters had character. 

At least Go Diego Go isn't Dora, which somehow irritates me even worse than Diego, even though it's the same show with the same formula.
