The casual viewer who happens to stumble on Thursday night's second-season premiere of Comedy Central's animated "Ugly Americans" might think it's mostly a funny goof on "Harry Potter."

It's all of that. But veteran viewers will immediately grasp that it's much more, like the whole titanic showdown between good and evil for control of the universe. That struggle may be a little subtle, but most viewers will discern that "good" is represented by a council of well-meaning if occasionally off-center wizards.
