About as good as it gets. How they managed to cram a direct epilogue to the original narrative, a full reboot of the overarching lore, an entirely new set of main masks, and both contemporary and historical political pontification is beyond me. What makes the writing of this show shine even more is it's just so entertaining and fast paced even when the story takes a back seat to storytelling (in a move that is incredibly similar to the comic's narrational structure exemplified by the Black Freighter segments). This thing is a 4D ouroborous and I'm glad it exists.

I know most probably consider this garbage, but it's done the same thing to me that The Burning Moon did. There's something so inexplicably appealing about this to me. Jimmy knows exactly what he wants and he fucking does it, it's probably the most complete and singular artistic vision I've seen in a while.
I'm giving this a good rating. Don't fucking @ me. If I need an excuse to justify why I like this so much, I'm just going to say that Labby told me to.
The true big boy of the trashvomit underground, it's probably the sentient gelatinous mass that seeps out of cheap trash bags overstuffed with rotting strawberry pudding and fetid bratwursts. Only Violent Shit lets you take a trip in the Abdominal Tunnel of Christ and come out the other end a bona fide butcher shitter. This bullshitting job fucks me to shit.
