I get it, that doesn't mean I enjoy it.
This is PURELY a personal review. I get everything about it: I get the dry sense of humor, I get that it's animation has to match the stories and settings they are conveying, I get everything about it and how smart it can occasionally be... That doesn't necessarily translate to entertaining, however.
I understand the appeal, which is why this is such a mixed review. I don't think the characters are enjoyable, I think that many of them are stereotypical and formulaic, and that just does not translate to relatable. Not that they are meant to be, but it'd be nice to maybe feel a little emotion when bad events take place upon them. Especially if the animation is just so bland. The fact is, when you have a show with bland characters, bland situations, bland environments, bland violence, everything else that makes the show good just seems bland. And this goes for ALL seasons for me. Not just the newer seasons, ALL of them. It can be creative though, and there's obviously a market for the kind of humor that it represents. I just don't think anything balances because there are too many weaknesses.
