Criminally overlooked and underrated follow up to Phineas And Ferb.
Hell, in my opinion, this is BETTER than Phineas and Ferb. Even though I still love Phineas And Ferb, Milo Murphy's Law is a far superior show with more jokes, interesting plots, a few clichés that aren't that bad to be honest, and TONS of Phineas And Ferb references and jokes (Not even counting the recent crossover). The story stars Milo Murphy, a descendant from the man whom Murphy's law (the law that states that anything that can go wrong will) is named after, navigating through his normal life and school life as Murphy's law causes pure chaos to happen around him and everyone around him. His two friends, Melissa and Zack, also have to navigate through the utter chaos that happens around Milo whilst simultaneously hanging out with him and looking out for him. Each character in the show is full of life and personality and general likability. I love Milo's care-free and can-do attitude whilst everything goes wrong behind him. He seems to have something to help stop the calamity that happens at all times so he doesn't show much concern when something awful happens. He sees everything as a fun adventure and that's why he's the only main character I've liked more than the others in any form of media for a LONG time. Zack is slightly cowardly but likes hanging around Milo, and Melissa is very supportive of Milo and Zack and also has her share of funny lines. Not only does the show reference and sometimes even make fun of Phineas And Ferb but it's also set in the same universe, allowing the recent Phineas And Ferb crossover to actually be a logical thing to happen unlike most crossovers. The shows jokes come from either clever word play, cutaway jokes that Family Guy WISHES it could have, making fun of Phineas And Ferb, ridiculous misunderstandings, slapstick (which isn't used as much as the shows predecessor), and the constant foiling of the plans set up by these two guys who own a Pistachio selling business, who basically act as butt monkey characters who never really are actually hurt but rather just have their missions ruined, so they aren't really sent through a living hell but rather a slight misfortune which is something that Spongebob should take note of. Overall, really good show. It takes Murphy's law and turns it into an entertaining cartoon that has sort of put Disney XD back on the map after Gravity Falls and Wander Over Yonder ended (not counting how Star vs. the Forces Of Evil has turned from a good show into an amazing one in the span of 2 years). The characters are likable, the jokes constantly punch, and it's just in general a very enjoyable show. Hope it goes just as long, if not longer than Phineas And Ferb, and since they can do anything with the Murphy's law concept, that means it won't get as stale as Phineas And Ferb after 4 seasons. Rock on Dan and Jeff!
