Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (13):
Kids say (44):

This misguided cartoon barely takes off before its pointless plot and bumbling characters drag it back down into obscurity. The stories are half-baked, leading nowhere fast and driving away potential fans even faster. Its visually unappealing animation style follows suit, attempting to mask the show in enough flashy trappings that you'll forget its mediocrity. For a team tasked with solving problems, this trio is more accomplished at creating bigger, messier chaos than it is at actually fixing anything, often as a result of Roba's neuroses and Alfe's belly-aching and binging, which is his coping mechanism for his chronic (and audible) boredom.

Ultimately the trouble with The Problem Solverz is its ambiguous intended audience. It's not edgy or smart enough to entertain adults, and its chaotic content isn't a good choice for kids. When it comes to picking TV programming for your family, you have a lot of choices. Entertainment doesn't always have to be about learning lessons and analyzing characterizations, but it sure feels a lot better when you leave a show with something worthwhile. And if that's your goal, then The Problem Solverz isn't the answer for you.
