One MUST lay the blame (Or credit) squarely upon the shoulders of Bobcat Goldthwait. This is his baby just as my favorite series of all time The Twilight Zone was Rod Serling's. But to belabor the obvious Goldthwait is no Serling and this show is no Twilight Zone.
It' s fitting that the premiere episode was half animated because the show itself is a lot like a cartoon, exaggerated and nonsensical without any pretenses of actual reality. It's a fun house mirror version of an anthology.
I differ from some others in that I didn't like the premiere but did like the second episode. The third was mediocre as well in my opinion and the previews for the fourth show no signs that it will be any better. One wouldn't imagine that Goldthwait just wanted to extend his 15 minutes of stand up comedy fame with a disposable Goosebumps style show but the proof is in the pudding and he obviously wasn't going for depth or meaning. If it stays at this mediocre level I predict that we'll never see a second season of this show and probably never hear from Bobcat Goldthwait again either. Hollywood loves a winner but this show isn't one and neither is he for making it.
