Doesn’t anyone watch this show? The first season was a little too much, too dark for me but there were some terrific episodes that show have gotten it an animated program nomination. Haven’t started season 2 yet, hopefully it’s a little less disturbing than the first.
The first episode was am improvement over the 1st season. They are no longer solely relying on vulgarity for humour and the characters are more sympathetic. Also, Laura Dern should totally get a voice over nomination. Animated characters rarely have so much raw emotion, Dern’s voice brings so much to her character.
Bumping this thread hoping someone else will watch the show. The second season was better than the first for the most part, it was a lot more consistent and each characters stories were more interesting than the last. However, the best dramatic and funniest moments of the show are still in season 1 and season 2 had a really bad ending. They decided to suddenly abandon the realistic family drama part of the show that would usually end the season and just go for something extremely shocking and violent. Going that route only 16 episodes in is very alarming.
I did watch the entire season. I am not sure if I “liked” it.
I dunno. Parts of it are funny and poignant, but the fact that the show is so mean-spirited and Frank Murphy really deserves to die makes me very sour on it. It’s not “bad”, per se, there are far worse shows.
There is no way in hell the Emmys will get behind this show.
