Alex Bolton hates ''everything'' and with that makes criticism to a varieties of subjects and for that use a lot of black comedy (and sometimes silly too) to prove his point, being both serious and funny at the same time.
"Long Live the Royals" is a 9-minute short film from last year that won creator Sean Szeles an Emmy. So it should not come as a particularly big surprise that there is more to this one as they made a couple more episodes that aired very recently. Anyway, we follow a family of royals. Father is the King, Mother wants everybody to act the way they need to as the royals family, Daughter is a punk rebel, and Son falls in love with a woman and messes up completely while trying to win her over. It was a funny little movie. I especially liked the "King is Dead" joke. I am not too sure if it's good enough to make me watch further episodes, but I enjoyed this one here, especially the second half. Admittedly, it needed a bit to become interesting, but that's fine as the characters are still entirely new. Recommended for animation lovers.
