While the cult film may have been years ago, this show is prepping itself into a league on it's own. Showing it can stand up among FOX's other top shows. "Ligertown" mixes some of the original film's comedy, especially in the beginning, and adds in some of their new humor and faster paced action to make a solid episode.
While I would say some bits were over the top, such as the Liger attack on Preston, the character interactions were a great addition to the plot. Some of the funniest bits were with Kip, Napoleon and Deb, as well as from Grandma. There was a bunch of funny interactions, and Napoleon had many funny lines throughout the episode. Deb's interactions with Napoleon were rather endearing at times, which was nice to see. It is clear the writers are setting those two up, and fans will tag along with it.
Animation was good and colors were nice. This series is headed in the right direction it appears, with two back to back episodes being good out of three. They are certainly getting a knack in the type of writing and plots they want, and I am actually enjoying it. Lets hope for more good episodes.
