Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
Executive produced by Jon Hamm, this moderately funny animated series parodies true crime shows with the help of quirky characters and strange unsolvable crimes. However, rather than focusing on telling a good story, Grimsburg's focus is more on offering quick one-liners and a litany of gags in every episode. But there are some badly timed jokes, and the non-stop gags don't always seem to go anywhere. Nonetheless, despite not being the sharpest of satires, Grimsburg manages to elicit the occasional chuckle. It's more silly than smart or witty, but folks who enjoy this type of entertainment may find it worth checking out.
