Look, I'm not someone who gets mad every time a reboot of something doesn't stay exactly true to the original. Things change, and sometimes a reboot can actually be BETTER than the original. Buuuut, that's not the case here. I actually thought this show was gonna be good, but boy, was I disappointed.
My problem with this show is that it's trying way too hard to be "real". And it just comes off really, really boring. It doesn't play much into the unusual elements of the setting or the characters, it's just trying to be a regular sitcom that just happens to have talking animals. Maybe that could work if it was done right, but the writing here isn't really good enough to pass. Slice Of Life
TV shows that take place in strange universes can be done. It works really well in the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic series. The difference between that show and The Looney Tunes Show
? The plots are not forced into the setting in MLP. It just goes naturally with it. While their setting does take place in a magical world populated by talking animals, the writers acknowledge that, they work with it and often take advantage of it.
The Looney Tunes Show
, however, does not take advantage of the show's stranger elements. It's trying way too hard to be a generic sitcom, and I don't even know why they're trying to do that. If you're going to put the Looney Toons characters into a sitcom, that's fine. Play your cards right and it could be really funny. But the way they did it, they just made a generic sitcom and threw the Looney Toons in it because I guess people would be more likely to watch it if it had familiar characters. That just seems pointless. It feels kind of like Loonatics Unleashed
: a stupid reboot concept in an attempt to be "relevent" to the kids. These are the LOONEY TOONS here. You can do a lot more with them than... this.
