Fox has a new show, and I described it earlier in my preview (TV predictions for the new season: 44 new shows (2016-17)) as “perhaps the weirdest show of the fall, we have an animated He-man-like character trying to connect with his human son and ex-wife.” Well, I said I would give it one episode and predicted 4 eps before early cancellation. Now that I’ve watched it, that might have been WAY too generous.
Think of a single Robot Chicken skit stretched over 25 minutes. With no more humour than was in the short skit. That would give you Ep 1 where Zorn meets his vegetarian son after being apart for 10 years, along with reuniting with ex-wife and meeting her new fiancé.
The son is a quiet dweeb, living in the suburbs, and Zorn sticks around hoping to butch him up. He gets a job, finds an apartment and gets his son new transportation. No, not a car, a giant hawk to ride around on. Which Mom says no to, so Zorn reluctantly chops the bird into giant pieces in the driveway.
Four episodes before cancellation is still my bet as they are likely already in the can. I wouldn’t have approved one.
