Good, Not Great
30 April 2018 | by cleavantderricksSee all my reviews

Life's a Zoo is a unique show with great animation but it isn't great. The worst thing about the show is the weird way they stick music videos in every episode, they come out of nowhere and you have to suddenly watch an entire music video by a band nobody has ever heard of and unless you happen to like the music (I only liked one in all the episodes I saw) you are in for a few minutes of boredom or even worse. The voice work was not very good but wasn't terrible either. The writing wasn't bad but also wasn't great. Overall the show is better than average but not special in any way.
