Son of Zorn: Season 1 (2016-2017)



Critic Consensus: Son of Zorn earns points for originality, a talented cast, and intermittent laughs, but they aren't quite enough to prop up a gimmick that's still in search of a workable premise for an ongoing series.

Critic Reviews for Son of Zorn: Season 1

All Critics (37) | Top Critics (14)

Of the few comedic offerings out there this fall, this is one of the brighter entries thanks to its creativity and unique premise.

Despite the bizarre premise... Son of Zorn has a lot of heart. Among the sharp jokes is a story about the struggles of a father and son connecting with each other, something that is actually very relatable.

There's always a very outside chance that Son of Zorn could have the legs of an ALF in the annals of hybrids turned into weekly sitcoms. But this already looks like pretty thin stuff that's not worth writing home about.

Either clever idea or one-trick pony, the Son of Zorn pilot can't entirely decide which it is either.

Top Critic

Son Of Zorn and The Last Man On Earth - and Lord and Miller's stuff in general, and Will Forte's - are about weirdness and silliness. They're about doing everything at an angle. Normal, after all, is overrated.

Son of Zorn does well to avoid the argument that something has been lost in this new, progressive world-Zorn is very much a buffoon from start to finish-but the gag has nonetheless started to wear thin by the end of the first episode's 22 minutes.

Audience Reviews for Son of Zorn: Season 1

Johnny Pemberton was the only person keeping this show together. The idea of using animated character in live action has been tried and done but this was a poor attempt at making slapstick jokes with unbelievable plot.
