I understand it's dark comedy and it's not "real", I just don't find it enjoyable to watch. Neil Patrick Harris is awful in this show - and I don't have anything against him as I think he's been great in other shows.

I watched all of season one, and even though I've been getting tired of the Netflix originals I thought it was pretty good. I'm not sure how you guys didn't get the tongue-in-cheek dark comedy and thought it was real, personally I thought that was great and subversive. The way the adults responded to the kids also reminded me of the cynical humor in Invader Zim, in a really good way. It's definitely a kid's show, but it has its moments, and I'm glad Netflix will see it through to the end.

Exactly my thinking, but then I did not read the books growing up. They are supposed to have a rather large following, although I find it hard to believe?
The cruelty and strange storyline did not sit well with me, lately I think we see rather too much torture in TV-series, and while it may fit in with the action based series, I do not like it there either and some of the series I stopped watching (Arrow) or did not start after sampling a few episodes (Daredevil). But in a series which has children in it and as a possible target group? That is just wrong, and if I am wrong with the target group, I want to know who watches this and why?
A series has to offer an interesting storyline, characters I can relate to, a few stars I really like, or something really different from other series to be watched by me, hopefully all of it or most.
This? Has none of it.

Such a terrible show. I honestly couldn't get through even the first episode of season 1, let alone 3 seasons. How does this tripe get renewed?!?
