Creator: Grant Morrison, Brian Taylor
Stars: Christopher Meloni, Ritchie Coster, Lili Mirojnick
Review:Wow. I haven’t seen a lot of Christopher Meloni outside of Law and Order or Wet Hot American Summer, so I didn’t expect anything in particular out of him in this performance. I should have held my expectations higher. What a phenomenal performance, start to finish.
The writing is incredible and fantastically delivered by Meloni and co. Particularly impressive was the attention paid to the villains of the series, who kept me confused, intrigued and at times sympathetic to the cause. Far more nuanced than many of the shows out there today.
While the tropes may become almost predictable at times, with a constant switch between ‘whatever can go wrong, will go wrong’ and major occurrences of deus ex machina, there never comes a point where this isn’t fun. And realistically, the point of it is to be fun. It is incredibly edgy, graphic and aggressive and runs at a crazy fast pace, but the audience never feels left behind. I absolutely can’t wait to see more!
Also, I feel like being animated means that Patton Oswalt doesn’t get a lot of attention, but the team behind the animation, writing and delivery of that crazy unicorns lines deserve a huge amount of praise too. I highly, highly recommend you take the time to watch this dark, action-packed comedy extravaganza.
