Before watching this pilot, I had expected something along the lines of Archer, seeing as how Archer is really the only original animated program currently on FX. I will admit I was a bit disappointed insofar as the quality of the episode, humor-wise, seemed a bit sub-par. Story-wise, there is a lot to build off of. However, it seems like one of those shows you'll need to watch every week, as the narrative seems to be an overarching one. While most animated fare works as standalone episodes, this series seems to be taking a different approach. Now, I could be wrong as I'm just basing this off of what was shown in the first episode, but it does seem that's it'll require a bit more involvement from the audience than most animated programs.
As of now, the story has much more staying power than the humor, which is a real shame. Still, when this series airs I might give it a shot just to see if anything develops. In short, if you can get past the sub-par humor in the first episode, there is a pretty interesting story to be told, one which will hopefully evolve along with the humor
Interested in watching this once it airs?
