Son Of Zorn: "Defender Of Teen Love" Review

The fun of Son of Zorn continues to show itself as Zorn tries to form a fatherly bond with his son. While Zorn remains a character who can be hard to like, watching his world -- inspired by fantasy pulled straight out of '80s cartoons -- intersect with the familiar, often bland representation of our own is what makes the new FOX series special. Watching Zorn use the Stone of Sight to try to resolve Alangulon's (Johnny Pemberton) dating issues in "Defender of Teen Love" kept making me wonder if this is similar to what Adult Swim's standout series Rick and Morty might look like as a slightly more grounded live action series. Zorn is hardly a likable guy, and oftentimes his humor can fall flat, like when he ruined Alan's chances at picking up Nancy (Ellen Wong) by making out with himself and pushing his behind against the garage window.

Son of Zorn Review: An Animated Hero, Lost Among the Millennials

Animated series are a hard enough sell. Semi-animated series in which the title character is drawn but hes living in an otherwise normal sitcom existence well, thats something else entirely. Yet thats the situation that the new Fox entry Son of Zorn has set up for its Sunday night animation domination audiences this fall. Have you ever wondered what He-Man would look like if he left Eternia and settled into suburban life? Thats kind of the vibe Zorn (voiced by Jason Sudeikis ) gives off in the pilot. When we meet the character, hes departing his comic book world of slaying evil-doers and doing other manly things in order to be with his human son Alan (Johnny Pemberton) on his birthday. But when Zorn realizes that his ex, Edie ( Cheryl Hines ), is engaged to another man ( Tim Meadows ) and his son all but hates him, he decides to stick around for a while and make a go of things. ...Read More... //www.thewrap.com/son-of-zorn-review-an-animated-hero-lost-among-the-millennials/

Son Of Zorn: "Pilot" Review

Son of Zorn has one of the more compelling premises of the new comedy pilots. It's a new series that combines animation and live action comedy, is airing on a network that has a proven track record with animated comedies (The Simpson, Family Guy) and is executive produced by Chris Miller and Phil Lord, the two guys who turned the LEGO franchise into one of the best animated films -- and films in general -- of 2014. The funniest thing about Son of Zorn is its premise. Zorn, a He-Man-type animated barbarian who is voiced by Jason Sudeikis in all his wry glory, does not blend well in Orange County, where he goes to visit his 17-year-old son Alangulon (Johnny Pemberton) and ex-wife Edie (Cheryl Hines). He's an aggressive meat-eater in a region where specialty diets abound, he carries around a sword and only wears a loin cloth, and he refuses to accept that his superior in the workplace can be a woman (she is).
