Campy, Trippy, Wonderful
The show certainly panders to a very specific audience; that being those currently taking rips in their basement. And while the show is best honestly best enjoyed under the influence, it's undeniable that its charm breaks through any pre-supposed barrier upon viewing. The episodes are short and sweet, only 10 minutes each, and they all follow the same formula. But clever writing still manages to steal the show, seamlessly tying together ironic clichés and vibrant visuals with wonderful characters and enthralling villains. While there is clearly an attempt to capture the nostalgia of 1980's Saturday cartoons emphasized by the grainy filters evoking the visual of VHS tapes and Retro-futuristic tech, the show moves beyond that quickly, abandoning the War on Drugs slogans of old to present something with a completely separate visual and narrative style.
