Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Farzar is an animated sci-fi comedy for adults. The comedy is based mostly in shock value and pushing boundaries, with no redeeming qualities. Episodes feature heavy gore, sexual content, and profanity, including things like full-frontal male nudity, on-screen suicide, and genital mutilation. Lots of genital mutilation.
Is It Any Good?
Is it truly possible to shock an audience that knows they're signing up to be shocked? Like many shows and movies before it, Farzar's one cheap trick is to push the boundaries of taste. It's similar to Family Guy but with about 1% of the cleverness (if that's mathematically possible) and none of the absurdism. The problem isn't necessarily that the show is offensive, but that it is incredibly bad at turning shock value into actual comedy. The room full of creators threw whatever they could at the wall to see if anything sticks. The thrown substances only get grosser and grosser, but the laughs never come.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
