TV Show Ramble: Disenchantment

Hello, my darling readers!
One of the first shows I watched once I had signed up for Netflix was Disenchantment. Created by Matt Groening, this one was bound to be good, right?

The Plot:

Disenchantment revolves around Princess Tiabeanie who is so not what you would expect from a princess.
She’s more like a dirty, drunk knight and certainly doesn’t care about getting married to some random dude. Beanie’s got two sidekicks a demon and an elf…

The Rating:

If you were hoping for this show to be as good as Futurama or The Simpsons, I have to disappoint you.
The characters are entertaining enough, but many of the jokes are beyond flat.

Before this sounds too negative, let me clarify something. I think that Disenchantment is still trying to figure out where’s gonna go and what it wants to be like. I enjoyed the episodes at the end of the season more than the first ones. So, I’ve got my hopes up, that this upward trend will continue with season two.

I’m not the biggest fan of Beanie, it felt like they weren’t trying too hard when coming up with her characters. However, I do like Elfo (the Elf) and Luci (the demon) and see a lot of potential there.

While the first season had me rolling my eyes quite often, the jokes did get better and I will make sure to give season two a chance.

Did you watch the show? Let me know in the comments what you think!

    • The first few episodes really dragged on. I wanted to stop as well but a friend encouraged me to keep going. The end of the season is somewhat more enjoyable but still a far cry from Groening’s other work.
