Always a fan of good animated comedy, I tuned in Allen Gregory to see what it held for me. Before the show even started, there was a "not suitable for children under 14" blurb, which gave me hope that this might be the new South Park - raunchy and scatological, but also inventive and funny.
The reality is much, much less. The humour (such as there is) is of the cruel, taunting variety, and the title character lacks any characteristics that make him sympathetic or likable. Set up as an intelligent overachiever by the show's promoters, he comes off more like an arrogant, impolite poseur with no compassion whatsoever for his fellow human beings.
Perhaps he gets this from his home situation, or perhaps he has managed to become this out of touch with reality all on his own. At any rate, the result is not worth watching.
