The show strains to be worthy of more than just the 10-minute-short treatment, and is therefore filled in with some unfunny and repetitive material.
So pleased with itself, it doesn't seem concerned about pleasing us.
Allen Gregory does its job so well that halfway through the first episode, you're rooting for the school bully to kick our hero's scrawny behind.
Allen Gregory is a character in desperate need of a foil and most of the first episode is spent showing us just how insanely quirky and weird he is, without allowing any of the other characters to be fleshed out.
