I’m a big fan of the Simpsons even if they’ve became a parody of themselves after so many decades and always liked Futurama a lot so you can bet I was ecstatic when I heard Matt Groening was working on a new series for Netflix. Despite the negativity surrounding it I was hopeful since I think even at their worst Matt Groening’s works had never disappointed me too much as there was always something to salvage. I don’t think I was too crazy for the setting but with the present and future already covered it makes sense and I have nothing against medieval settings.
I like the characters a lot even if their voices aren’t as iconic as I’d want them to be they get the job done. Princess Bean being the opposite of what a princess is supposed to be is rather refreshing and fun, she looks a little bit like a young Marge too. Elfo the elf might look like Bart but he is his own character and has an interesting role being magical but frustrated for being a cuddly ugly elf. Luci de demon is fantastic and just the black humor that the show needs. I can’t say I like any of the recurring characters much, at least not now and the biggest problem I have with the character designs are the 5 fingers, it’s so bizarre to see Matt Groening’s style with more than 4 fingers. I think the show does need to have more recurring characters that are important and or entertaining but we haven’t gotten that so far.
