Supposedly it is taking on fantasy like Futurama did for SF.  I hope David X Cohen is on board.

I am SO on board for this. I hope Australian Netflix picks it up.

I watched the first two. Its OK, I like the characters and set up but haven't really found it all that funny yet. I'll keep watching but so far it has not been equal to Futurerama for me.

It's OK!
I disavow anyone in the movement involved in any illegal,unethical, sexist, or racist behavior. However, I don't have the energy or time to investigate each person and case, and a lack of individual disavowals for each incident should not be construed as condoning such behavior.

The show's title is an apt description of my emotions regarding said show.

Watched the first 3 and I liked it. It's not Futurama, but it does make me laugh consistently and there's a good smattering of background stuff to enjoy. It's very Simpsons humor in Futurama's world building style.

Also the voice of Prince Merkimer was a fun cameo for fans of the IT Crowd.

Yeah, it ticked my "dumb shit with funny voices" box pretty well.  I enjoy picking out voice actors, and there are lots of opportunities for that in this show.

I watched the last few episodes last night. It was fun. I enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to the next season.
