I've only just had a chance to sit down and enjoy the new series of Creature Comforts from Aardman. Jonny Baker used the one about Cats and Dogs as part of our worship at The Matrix Youth conference earlier this year and I see a lot of potential for laughter and discussion with some young people.
There are sections on creation/evolution, Christmas and aliens as well as a fabulous episode apparently about buying pets but based on intervews with people about the dating game. It has a lot of really good stuff about self-worth.
I think this is why I have always LOVED the original Creature Comforts and why I was gutted to realised I'd missed the new series when it was on TV. I find the way that Nick Park et al. connect the human situations with our preceptions of corresponding (though not identical) situations in the animal world. Genius!
Well Ben M has taken up the challenge to write bible discussion notes for the series for me. What a star! Leaves me with plenty of time to conemplate the joys of the new Wallace and Gromit film!
