Imagine trading banter with Matt Groening , Abbi Jacobson , Eric Andre , Sharon Horgan , and Noel Fielding over voice chat in a hilarious, cannabis-fueled World of Warcraft session.
That's what I was doing — imagining — instead of paying attention to Season 2 of Netflix's Disenchantment , an occasionally inspired show which continues to amuse by giving us opportunities to picture it being slightly better.
In contrast, when Bean and her friends Luci (Andre) and Elfo (Nat Faxon) have a desperate goal, and are journeying into unknown parts of a sprawling and exciting fantasy world, everything comes alive.
Several character designs, including buck-toothed Bean and her father's Akbar and Jeff-like lackeys, harken back even further, to Matt Groening's punkish Life in Hell comic strip.
DisenchantmentPhoto: NetflixThe voice talent is more than just celebrity casting: Jacobson and Andre in particular find new rhythms that save lines from being rehashed Simpsons joke templates.
Several voices are provided by Tress MacNeille of The Simpsons ; while we are grateful for her classic creations, her presence takes us out of the show we're watching and into another one for which we feel nostalgic fondness.
