After tackling modern times with “The Simpsons” and the future with “Futurama,” producer Matt Groening steps into the past with “Disenchantment.”
The animated fantasy series geared toward adults takes place in the crumbling medieval kingdom of Dreamland. It follows the misadventures of hard-drinking young princess Bean, her feisty elf companion Elfo and personal demon Luci. The oddball trio encounters the likes of ogres, sprites, imps, trolls and human fools along the way.
I loved it and Mister often (virtually) rolled over laughing at the witty, slapstick dialogues. It can also be gruesome, offensive and vulgar sometimes, so just keep an open mind while watching Disenchantment. It’s dark.
There are only 10 episodes in season 1, and the way it ends, I am sure there is be a season 2 soon.
Weekend’s here and if you were going to Netflix and chill, Disenchantment would be a good series to begin with – one of Netflix’s good home productions in my opinion.
Here’s Disenchantment’s official trailer for you:
So, what are you watching these days? Now that I am done with Disenchantment, I play Victorious (by nickelodeon) on Netflix. It is more for background noise than theatrical pleasures though.
