Disenchantment

Matt Groening’s much-hyped medieval fantasy show: I went in with the best will in the world, but couldn’t get past more than 2 episodes. I think it was partially that despite having an absolute gun roster of voice talent, the voices all felt recycled from other shows (which I find very distracting)… and also that the writing came across a bit consciously controversial – like what South Park do, only they nail it every time. Maybe I should give this another go (and judging from the amount of fun John DiMaggio has making it, maybe it gets better?). 👎
