Disenchantment (announcement and discussion thread)

Post by ian » Wed Jul 26, 2017 12:50 pm

Matt Groenings new show. On netflix 2018.

"Ultimately, 'Disenchantment' will be about life and death, love and sex, and how to keep laughing in a world full of suffering and idiots, despite what the elders and wizards and other jerks tell you," Groening said in a statement issued by Netflix.

The show will also be voiced by several well-known names, including “Broad City’s” Abbi Jacobson, Nat Faxon, who had worked before on animated series “The Cleveland Show,” and has a role in Netflix’s newer show “Friends from College;” along with Eric André, John DiMaggio, Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, David Herman, Matt Berry, Jeny Batten, Rich Fulcher, Noel Fielding, and Lucy Montgomery.

So far it's 20 episodes, and will be released 10 at a time.

With the cast, Groening's track record for creating good shows, and Rough Draft doing the animation. I can safely say I am looking forward to this almost as much as the day I looked forward to new Simpsons episodes as a young kid, or as much as I looked forward to Futurama when I was an older kid.
The English language had deteriorated into a hybrid of hillbilly, valleygirl, inner-city slang and various grunts. Joe was able to understand them, but when he spoke in an ordinary voice he sounded pompous and faggy to them.

Of course, Groenings creations are probably responsible for more of my laughs than anything else, so it's bound to be good. At this stage, He's earnt my blind trust. Like Matt and Trey, or Judge. I don't even need to know the concept, who's involved, or what format it will be to know I will enjoy it.

Let’s start taking bets on how long this will run before cancellation.

Really hard to call, one show has been dead for 18 years and still won’t end,

The other was around just long enough for people to fall in love, then die, then keep coming back.

I think either 3 seasons or 10+

It's a Netflix show, so it will probably go 3 to 5 seasons.

I like it, but it’s missing something I can’t quite put my finger on.

I would have called the show past o rama.

99% of the credits are from Futurama anyway. And that’s a good thing.

I’ll have to watch the rest of it to see if I can pick what’s not sitting right with me (I’ve only watched 5 episodes (stretching it out till new bojack and South Park)

Well I’ve finished it.
I still can’t quite put my finger on what’s off, but I’m putting it down to writing.
I think it seems to be forgetting to be funny to tell a story.

The animation, music, setting, and cast are all spectacular and are propping up both the story and especially the jokes.

I will be watching the career of Eric Andre closely. he’s been great, playing a great character, but Matt Berry has been the major standout.
He’s not playing a great character, and it got stupid after the transformation..
But Jesus his delivery of everything and especially the line: “there’s cabbage?” Had me laughing like a moron.
Show needs more David Herman, like every show he’s in.

If they can pick up the funny a little in the next 10 episodes, there could be another classic on Netflix. Second half of the season was a lot better.
