What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
This is a spoof of the television "aftershow," and pokes fun at fandom culture.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that What Just Happened?! With Fred Savage is a show that spoofs the fan-centered "aftershows" that air after some popular TV series (like The Walking Dead). It contains some strong language (curses bleeped with mouths blurred), some sexual innuendo, arguing, and violent, bloody fight scenes from a fictitious show.
Is It Any Good?
This silly series is a spoof of the popular television "aftershow," which have become common fixtures after the airing of a popular television series. But while a show featuring real actors and musicians playing themselves on a real talk show series that is 100% about a fictitious series that is based on a fictitious book franchise is smart, this one occasionally feels like it's trying too hard. The jokes and gags don't go far enough, which keeps it from becoming a truly solid satire, versus a spoof that falls flat too often. Ultimately, What Just Happened?! With Fred Savage has potential, but despite some funny moments, it doesn't fully meet it.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
