This is my new favorite TV series - sort of a cross between Bob's Burgers and the Simpsons but with such a great theatrical cast, catchy tunes and hilarious plots. Is anyone else watching?

I’ve been looking forward to this one for awhile now. Watched the first episode last night and enjoyed it. I am looking forward to seeing more.

Kristen Bell voicing a mixed race character is problematic and josh gads character is superfluous

Yeah, I was a little put off by that, but they also have Daveed Diggs voicing a white character.

And her sibling is voiced by Titus burgess. Can’t we just celebrate that this cast as very diverse? I guess it’s also ‘problematic’ that 2 of the female characters are voiced by males. I find that funny and entertaining. I just don’t think this is a show we need to judge the casting

I watched the 1st 2 episodes and enjoyed it. I know the 3rd episode dropped already but haven't had a chance to watch it yet.

It was cute enough but I gradually got more bored as the first episode went on. Maybe I'll try another one. 

As to Kristen Bell moving to a different character but staying on the show? I'm fine with that. She agrees with it and she'll still make mint either way.
