Excellent show...this website is not a soapbox

Hey christains. Chill out, okay? Clearly this show has done its job if it pissed you off, but thats not what i think. Lucy, DOTD was created by Loren Bouchard, an underratted genius who has also produced other classics like Dr.Katz Professional Therapist, Home Movies and more recently Bobs Burgers, all which has quite similar but well-thoughtout humour and characters. Lucy is no doubt Loren's most darkest and mature work, but the way he satires religion is so spot on. An extremely witty comedy that plays off as a lowbrow one, taking the stereotyping perception of God is good and Satan is bad and completely destroying it. The characters here are also full of life and even if the show has alot of offensive material, just like Moral Orel, it plays along with the story and not just there for shock value. In short, this show is a classic. Oh and one more thing for you christains, this is a REVIEW page, not a soapbox to preach your faith. You don't like the show, fine, if it offends you, even better, but there are plenty of other websites to vent your rage about how a satire made you butthurt and instead of writing a logical criticism about the show itself you get huffy puffy and tell everyone how much you believe in a god and how much everyone else doesn't..hell i bet none of you have even watched the show and got mad because of the name itself. feh, if the bible was made into a tv show, it would utterly eclipse everything in terms of violence and sex.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (3):

This series is sure to outrage some viewers -- particularly those who take offense at a spectacle like Jesus and Satan singing a karaoke duet of Pat Benatar's "Shadows of the Night. The tone of the cartoon, which was created by Loren Bouchard, will be familiar to fans of Bouchard's past work on Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist and Home Movies. Characters speak in monotone voices and interact with each other in decidedly non-cartoon-like ways. While clearly not a title for everyone, this smart, funny cartoon may appeal to older teens (and some parents).
