Duncanville: Season 1 (2020)


Season 1

Critics Consensus

Amy Poehler lends her buoyant pipes to dual roles in Duncanville, a modest animated comedy that gets a lot of mileage out of its colorful palette and daydream flourishes.

    Moves waaay too fast. "A joke a second" sounds good, but this felt like someone speed-reading at me

    So are they going to cancel the show? Or will they change the actor of the main role because its a woman playing the role of a boy? Are all the voice actors right for all the parts? Or do they just mess up the Simpsons, American Dad, and every other decent show on tv? Asking for a friend.

    I went into this knowing absolutely nothing beforehand, nothing about the creators, voices or such. The series was an enjoyable laugh throughout the entire season, the character were amusing and situations were comedic even when the plot was sometimes crazy. the characters all had their own personalities and didn't feel like cardboard cutouts like many other animated shows. It doesnt rely on crude humour to get by. Overall an enjoyable watch.

    I don't like it. It seems to be a bad a cheap copy of the worst "The Simpsons" episodes.
  • Sep 15, 2020
    The big mistake of the FOX channel was to indicate that it is from the creators of the Simpsons, which gave rise to compare with the Simpsons. Without making this comparison, the jokes are forced, nothing new, cold at times and in general humor that is not understood and tries to resemble other TV shows.

    Duncanville is a television series that promises a lot with its funny jokes and story
  • Sep 10, 2020
    It's nothing special, it's pretentious It works to pass the time, it has some moments that stole a smile from me. One more of a lot.
