The long-running CBS drama Touched by an Angel spanned nine seasons in almost a decade. We tuned in to its later period and found this ideologically confusing gem of an episode in which a young Jewish cartoonist lashes out at her father by drawing anti-Semitic caricatures of him in the local paper. Her comic gets hugely popular, and everything seems fine until the wrong crowd misses the irony and adopts her comic strip as a banner of hate. Fortunately, the angelic pantheon that is Tess, Monica, and Gloria are there to diffuse the situation and heal the relationship between father and daughter. Joining us in the synagogue is our dear friend Alec Robbins, the creator of popular webcomic "Mr. Boop", who helps us examine the great power held by the medium of comics.
