    I really really like this show! I found it on iTunes and was hooked almost immediately. What is an okay premise -- the show is basically "The Simpsons take to the road" -- is elevated by beautiful animation, imaginative story telling, and the great vocal talents of Kevin Nealon and Catherine O'Hara.

What is an okay premise -- the show is basically "The Simpsons take to the road" -- is elevated by beautiful animation, imaginative story telling, and the great vocal talents of Kevin Nealon and Catherine O'Hara. My favorite episode guest starred Chrissie Hynde as part of an over the hill "bangles" band, and told a nice story about dreams versus priorities, and how wives are expected to subjugate themselves for their husbands. Set the Tivo and check it out. I have no idea when it's on. Expand

    The humour is ok but the plots are weak and sometimes boring and pointless.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. its a great show, funny jokes, dont get why some people criticize the animation, although it could go without that damn dog, aside from that the only people that dont like it ( or obnoxiously complain for that matter) are these over protective parents that dont recognize pure and simple comedy with an edge.

    The show is clever in parts, but it's just not that funny.

    But ignore the stilted jokes, the limp characterization, the complete lack of "re-imagining" of anything. Just understand this: Martin is an animated show with a laugh track.

    It's a format that just doesn't mesh with a laughtrack -- and when there's nothing particularly funny about what we're watching, it smacks of desperation.
