Tedious beginning, but the second half is pretty good.

The more I see of the new Looney Tunes show, the more I'm convinced it's written by 12-year-old boys.
Also, LT was less sexist when it didn't depict women at all. Christsakes.

I forgot they have a new separate show for Duck Dodgers.
They all suck...this and the new Looney Tunes show, all written by hipsters with no sense of what makes the original shorts funny. That goddamn abortion that was Loonatics.
The main problem is they are throwing all the money into production. In the old days you had to make the little time you had count, so they poured a ton of jokes into a very short time frame. They are trying to fill in a half hour all the way through with nothing but references and dialogue that feels stilted and boring. The visuals and character design are okay. They are trying to emulate the old stuff but they aren't keeping what made those funny. Daffy isn't nearly enough of a dick in these. He's just a cleaned up version of the original.
The same goes for other Looney Tunes newer stuff. They are basically not funny, just filled with references and trying to emulate other forms of comedy that don't work with the characters that they have. Just have them be dicks to each other and constantly screw each other over and it goes back to being funny. Any time they try to be EDGY and HIP it just winds up looking embarrassing.
looney toons can be reappropriated about as well as the three stooges were recently
