Stay away from ths show, period.
This cartoon has such a ditasteful, horrendous and outright unwatchable set up for so called "jokes" that even it's tasteless nature couldn't entertain me. I do have standards for what I think is funny, I figured through this show.

I have no previous experiences with Jonah Hill, all I know is that he's starring in the 2014 film "Wolf of Wall Street", and he didn't even seem funny there. Now, as I haven't actually spent my time watching his previous works I shouldn't be judgemental, but this cartoon makes it very hard not being so.

In all honesty, the plot is not the worst of the bunch, but the way the plot was flowing had little logical relevance, Allen Gregory's introduction scene didn't fill his character to an interesting degree, and the way his demeanor is displayed the first minutes you see him makes you instantly dislike him. While he is not the first character with sadistic behaviour as the main trait, other shows have done a better job with this (Even Family Guy, and I don't like that show). Most characters on the side are boring and forgettable, such as Allen Gregory's adopted sister Julie, whose only purpose is to have a female in the protagonist's family, which doesn't really help the show being more interesting. His father Richard is a manipulative, selfish Man Child (you can see where Allen Gregory gets his douchebaggery from) who uses his husband Jeremy for sexual needs, which really rats homosexual people out as if they're only interested in sex.

But the absolute most disgusting part about the entire series is Allen Gregory's crush on his 70-year old principal. Actually, this wouldn't be that bad if it wasn't for his very, very sexual view of her which is not funny in the slightest, despite it being Played for Laughs, it's just plain disturbing.

Not to mention the jokes, they really irk me and is the piss icing on the turd cake. They're mostly dull, and whenever Allen Gregory is being "funny", you think he's serious or just have a bleak case of being a Cloud Cuckoo Lander. When he isn't being funny he isn't funny either. He's random in the bad way.

Don't waste time on this bullshit. Your time is worth more.
