The Goode family are too nice and sincere to laugh at. Where is the liberal fascism and liberal totalitarianism? Observe that the kid gets away with defining his ethnicity as “African American” (he is white from South Africa) while in real life the kid from South Africa who pulled that stunt got expelled from college.
The only funny character is the dog, because he is rebelling against the family veganism by devouring every neighborhood pet smaller than himself.
The show fails because it is too soft on liberalism. To get a laugh, have to stick the knife in and twist it a bit. This show is too much like “Father knows best”
The only part of the first episode where they really stick the knife in, and follow it up with a few boots to the head, is, of course, where they stick the knife into fundamentalist Christians.
The Goode Family are genuinely and sincerely trying to do good. That is not funny. They should be genuinely and sincerely deluded that they are doing good. That would be funny.
