This show is a blast
13 January 2017 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Just finished marathoning through all 8 episodes today, and that was super fun! Neil Patrick Harris was obviously the highlight of the show, as well as Mr Poe, the narrator, Sunny, oh hell pretty much every character here was portrayed well!

The comedy is always there, even when something more serious happens (like a character murdered or something) there is still some funny joke or line said that's always lightening up the mood. The visuals were great as well. Sure some of the effects seemed fake, but overall the scenarios and general cgi were pretty good, way better than most shows on television.

Ending of the season 1 was left kind of opened and unsolved, hope they pick it up for a season 2 otherwise it will suck.

At times the show felt a little dragged out and longer than it should have. Some episodes could have easily been 25 minutes but instead ran for 47 minutes and thus although were still funny, you can still feel like they just kept putting in filler content in order to feel longer.

This isn't a show to watch and expect intensity or heart felt drama. This is a show you watch if you like quick pun jokes and just something really fresh, as there's no real TV show like it.

9/10 if the series continues.
