Is It Any Good?

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

In the vein of edgy cartoons like South Park and Family Guy comes this little gem of a series, which packs a punch of irreverent fun that grown-ups are sure to like. Demonic though the Hellmans may be, the show's skewed view of humanity casts them as the morally fibrous ones amid their eccentric neighbors and crass coworkers.

An unexpected plus to this comical series is the heartwarming substory of how the Hellman family is influenced by the positive aspects of human life, namely their relationships and responsibility toward each other. Balthazor especially takes this trait to heart and tries to make it a part of his home structure, and the result is a (mostly) happy, well-adjusted demon family. Warm fuzzies for adults, to be sure, but not for kids and tweens, as the message is lost amid strong language, sexual inferences, racial stereotypes, and plenty of violence.
