Unapologetically macabre and hilarious for it, GOLAN THE INSATIABLE is a quirky series that will appeal to older teens' and adults' darker sides. The pairing of an overweight, self-absorbed demigod with a sullen, scheming grade-schooler is entertainment genius, making it impossible not to like this inexplicably appealing odd couple, despite her affinity for all things morbid and his bumbling attempts at living among humans.

Clearly this isn't something your tweens should be watching, and there's nothing of real value in it for teens who tune in either. But there is a surprisingly nurturing relationship between a mentor and his acolyte, which gives the show more heart than one might expect from a story about a kid's quest to wipe her town off the map. Fortunately the grown-up crowd can put this kind of dark humor in its rightful context and fully appreciate Golan's excellent writing and talented voice cast.
