Two Sentence Horror Stories is scary, well-paced, and imaginative. Each episode seems to have a different idea it wants to follow.

Kid Cosmic seems like the natural offspring of a few shows, and a few pieces of very prominent media.
Being in the review community, it was nearly impossible for me not to be aware of Star vs. the Forces of Evil. The show was one of the earliest popular and story-driven cartoons to define the modern era.
Helluva Boss is no Hazbin Hotel. It does not even come close. But does that mean I hate the show? No—I don’t even actively dislike it. There are redeeming aspects to this internet series, but it’s also got a lot of the bad parts of Hazbin, with a lot less of the charm.
Each is about two minutes, give or take, and—I’m betting for budget or time reasons—it has no actually voiced characters. There’s just “reaction sounds” that could have easily been taken from an existing movie.
I vaguely recall the original Winx Club show. My main memory of the series was the catchy 4Kids intro and that it was similar to W.I.T.C.H. But I know that among many it was a childhood classic.
The focus on imagination and crazy visuals over story, the bulbous CGI style, and the emphasis on family/teamwork are all here, oozing out of every pore. If you can’t get with that, then just don’t bother with this.
I don’t have the insider knowledge to know if the show achieved its intended results. What I mean is that there may have been no worse time to release a show like this. Or, at the very least, no more an insensitive time.
Between Kipo and The Last Kids on Earth, the child-friendly apocalypse has become a subgenre. But that’s not a bad thing, especially when both shows have been stellar.
WandaVision is one of the freshest, strangest, most experimental things that the Marvel cinematic universe has produced. And considering Guardians of the Galaxy exists, that’s quite a thing to say.
It’s a subversive funhouse. A lot of the initial expected trappings seem in place, but the show ruthlessly attacks tropes from the second episode onward. Nothing plays out the way it should, and often the show has a sense of ever-present danger usually lacking from children’s fantasy cartoons.
