    Anyone watching this on Netflix?
    Watched the first episode and it didnt grab me and hook me in the way The Simpsons and Futurama did but Im about 6 episodes in now and Im loving it
    Its frickin hilarious and got the same kinda humor you would expect from Matt Groening so if you're a fan of the other two shows you should check it out
    I give it my highest 7 thumbs up recommendation

    I havent checked it out. I thought the matt groening style humour is kind of outdated, but if you say its good i might check it out

    Futurama fan here. Seems pretty good/promising.It does have a progressing storyline unlike the other shows though.

    I liked it. I am prone to fantasy settings though. I will agree that it took a few episodes for the enjoyment to get up there.

    Starts off weak, and at about episodes 3 or 4 it starts to be ok, and then becomes half decent at about 6 or 7.

    Not a patch on Futurama though.

    it has it's moments and it somewhat funny, my onky beef with it is the jokes aren't so smart compared to simpsons or .futurama they need to here new writers. they made elfo too dumb he could have been a better character.

    I watched the first episode, maybe two. I'm a huge Futurama fan so I had high expectations but those episodes were terrible. Just incredibly unfunny and tired. But I hear it really picks up at least in plot by the 7th epidsode. So I plan on powering through eventually. Sucks that it's not quite Futurama, but maybe it will grow in to something worth watching. I still have the early Simpsons to go back to eventually.

    It's a great drunk show. Not for the sober.

    It's not meant to be in the same vein as The Simpsons or Futurama. They're not creating endearing characters or a larger world.

    It's just good for when you're drunk or high and you need something to watch that you don't have to remember.

    I'm a huge fan of Simpsons and Futurama, but like someone else said the Groening type of humour feels outdated. These type of shows worked better in the late 90's and early 2000's, or maybe I'm just old and bitter and now.

    Had an unexpected turn that I did not see coming. Still, don’t really care too much about the show. Will watch a second season, but it’s barely a 6 out of 10

    It was ok.
    I felt that they "stole" a lot from Futurama in the voices and some minor characters that looked exactly like Futuramas.
    I said this a billion times Matt Groening is not funny.
    I watched the show as said it was ok, to me. Nothing new nothing exciting and not very funny.
