Maybe i'm getting old but this show is trash...

It's cruder than either simpsons or futurama, with none of the cleverness

It's like they took the worst parts of Family Guy and South Park and made a TV show

I only watched the first 2 episodes though... but kinda shocking to me how bad this was.

really makes you appreciate some of those early Simpsons writing rooms and the shear amount of talent they had.

I’ve watched I think the first 4, it’s definietly not very good, but not necessarily as bad as OP makes it out to be, there’s a few humerous moments. But I did read a review that said the last 3 episodes were great, maybe I’ll just skip to those to see if there’s any truth to it

Watched the first.. Not impressed. But I thought Futurama was pretty dumb at the beginning and it became one of my favorite shows... I'll probably watch the whole season to see if it finds its place

ive only seen the first three, some funny moments in there for sure but it is very uneven. hope it gets better.

the bit with the king examining the cake in the first episode really got me though

I believe they already are well along on the second part, if not finished already, they just wanted to stagger it’s release

Finished watching it today.

It's no Futurama but it's got moments. I'll watch Part 2 when it comes out but I really hope it picks up. 2nd half of Part 1 was much stronger than the first half.

I stopped at episode #5 for now. I was binging it and that just felt like a complete waste of time. Maybe it would be fine right before bed for a single episode.

The only real enjoyment I recall watching the show was picking out the various voice actors who also do other Groening shows.

Second half is better but the whole thing is pretty mediocre. But the first season of any animated show is generally pretty rough both voice and animation until everyone gets in a groove.

I'm still suprised they didn't redo elfo after a recording session or two. This is a show with funny voices sure but its got really good pro VA's doing those funny voices everywhere else. I'd rather Nat Faxon just do something a little more normal than whatever he went with.

Coming out with a full season all at once hurts the chances for improvement as it goes. I watched 4 episodes, laughed maybe once during each one, then gave up because the story is terrible.
