Is It Any Good?

Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (3):

This pleasantly absurd animated series doesn't rise to the comic heights of an Archer or a Bob's Burgers, but its skewering of sitcom clichés is pretty fun. Half-hour comedies have, of course, made plenty of comedic hay from the sorts of misunderstandings that can arise when people live together in a small space; Jeff & Some Aliens' hassles are just a little more bizarre, with the title character participating in intense intergalatic decathalons and reluctantly committing Azurian honor killings to restore interstellar balance instead of, say, arguing about whose turn it is to do the dishes.

There are more wry chuckles than thigh-slappers, but there are some fun gags that teens will get a kick out of.
