This Week in Milford

Good Goobly Goop!

“Holly, this show sucks worse than a Dyson. If we don’t get our ratings up pronto we’re riding the dog back to Tinseltown and a life of waiting tables and prostitution.”

“I have just the idea, Alan. I’ll mess with Gil’s golden boy’s head so much the only passes he’ll be able to make are at girls. Yeah, that’s the ticket.”

Circling True like a vulture, Holly attempts to sow the seeds of sexual doubt in True’s mind. When he doesn’t bite, Alan recruits another refugee from the ’70s to do the dirty work (as if filming this crap and wearing the network logo T-shirt isn’t enough; they’re paying scale!). We know nothing about who Trish might be but no matter; she’s just a pawn in Alan and Holly’s game of love.

Next on Welcome Back, Carter: We’ve replaced the spinach in the Milford High cafeteria with wild parsley!



  1. Having spotted Holly’s Adam’s Apple in panel 1, I’m happy to say I’m no longer captivated by her back cleavage. Now, who’s this Trish babe? Hubba hubba!

  2. In the real world, of course, it would take fewer than six hours for every student at the school to hear that the creepy camera guy was trying to spread rumors about True, and that would be the end of that. Of course, in the real world, this whole thing would have been shut down long ago by parents (Doesn’t this town have any lawyers? Where are they?)
    In the comic strip world, the distractions to the Mudlark football program will pile up until they lose one that they should have won, missing the playdowns. The entire “Welcome Back Carer” crew will load up their 2008 Honda Accord and head back west, leaving a bereft community to reflect on their fifteen minutes of … well, exposure of some sort, if not quite fame.

  3. This isn’t same cameraman from yesterday is it? Grady seems like an Illinois State grad.

  4. Whatever good feelings that may have come from a possible return of Boo, with a vague hope of character development, have just crashed like the Hindenburg.

  5. I’ll take things that get real teachers fired for $400, Alex.

  7. I think this has possibilities. A tag team cage match. Mimi and Boo vs Trish and Holly. I know who’ll bring the brass knuckles. “I do not weigh 271lbs! I weigh 217 lbs!!!”

  8. […] she doesn’t even rate a meeting with Alan but instead is easily induced by the show’s cameraman to help goose the action on this show. Unfortunately for her, True is typically depicted as […]
