A Star Is Zorn
26 September 2016 | by atlasmbSee all my reviews

There are some Zorn scorners here, but this show has an original premise: Father who hasn't seen his son--or his ex-wife--for many years decides to drop in for his son's birthday to reconnect, but finds they have little in common as they come from different worlds. The ex-wife shames him into moving locally so he can be present in his son's life like a responsible father. Makes you want to watch it right now, huh? Maybe not. But what if the father is a cartoon and he has to move into the unanimated world? That's the premise that makes it all interesting--an ANIMATED fish out of water story.

Jason Sudeikis voices the titular Zorn--a Conanesque warrior who also makes jokes and acts silly on occasion. Cheryl Hines is the ex-wife who moved from "Suburgatory" to suburbia and tries to forget the wild excesses of her former life with Zorn.

Much of the comedy originates from the juxtaposition of a cartoon with modern reality as when Zorn is hired for a sales job because he satisfies management's desire for diversity (not that cartoon characters are a protected class).

I was going to mention an error in the show in another section of IMDb, but I will list it here: At the beginning of the first episode, the volcanic island they show for Zephyria is actually the island of Xenaphydria--a common mistake, but the inhabitants--especially the Phydradites--are touchy about it.

There is a lot of potential in this comedy, but its success will depend on clever writing.
