TV is an increasingly strange business, but There's...Johnny! argues that there's still a bit of magic in the chaos.

It's unclear if There's...Johnny! will continue in any form, but as it stands now, it's an odd, endearing gem, and with only seven half-hour episodes, a pleasant way to kill an afternoon.
