“Disenchantment” is an adult fantasy animated sitcom, developed for Netflix by Matt Groening, the creator of “The Simpsons”, that will have you either cracking up or on the edge of your seat. The show is set in the medieval city of Dreamland, where Princess Tiabeanie, voiced by Abbi Jacobson, can never catch a break. She and her two best friends Elfo, a half-elf voiced by Nat Faxon, and Luci, a demon voiced by Eric Andre, are always facing some type of conflict, whether it be evil parents, a castle raid, or some angry mythical creatures. Bean is not your stereotypical teenage princess. She is very rebellious and doesn’t like having her life planned out for her. She prefers picking up a sword and exploring over sitting on the throne and being married off. Elfo is an optimistic and jolly elf who doesn’t quite fit in with the other elves. Luci is a demon who was sent to make Bean’s life miserable (as if it wasn’t already), but ended up growing a soft spot for her and Elfo. He becomes a life-long companion. 

Though the animation style is very similar to “The Simpsons” and “Futurama”, the writers of the show said they’d prefer to have their show compared to “Game of Thrones”. It is said to be “the offspring of the Simpsons and Game of Thrones.” Just like in Game of Thrones, there are sorcerers, knights, kings and queens, and other elements of the Middle Ages. This show will have you laughing out loud every episode. Not only is it hilarious, but it is always taking unexpected turns and has a solid plot. It’s the only show that I can really sit and watch. 


After leaving off on a nail-biting cliff hanger for the season 2 finale, season three of Disenchantment follows Bean, Elfo, and Luci through a number of life-threatening obstacles, starting with the three amigos narrowly escaping their execution. King Zog, Bean’s father who is voiced by John DiMaggio, is driven mentally insane after being buried alive. This poses a huge threat to the kingdom. Bean has gone off on her own journey to Steamland, a place that is far more advanced than Dreamland, to find the person who did this to her father. This adventure turns out to be a mission of self-discovery and character development.

Luci didn’t get much screen time this season because he was caring for King Zog, who is almost completely off his rocker. Though it was disappointing not seeing as much of Luci, we got to follow Bean and Elfo throughout Steamland, a steampunk world of flying ships and guns that is far more technologically advanced than Dreamland’s horse drawn-carriages and swords.
