Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (3):

This irreverent series, which originally debuted at the Sundance Film Festival, anthropomorphizes animals to share comical, bitter, and often clueless thoughts about day-to-day life. The delivery of these reflections is purposely drab and dry, and the voices of well-known celebs, including Molly Shannon and Paul Scheer, also add to the banter.

The stories it tells aren't particularly unique or clever, and the flat delivery soon becomes stale thanks to its overuse. Some of what's featured is pretty crude, too. Nonetheless, there are some moments when you can't help but chuckle. If you like this sort of TV entertainment, no doubt you will appreciate what's being delivered here.
