Matt Groenig's new animated show Disenchantment landed on Netflix today. It's a medieval fantasy that follows Princess Bean and her two companions (an elf and her personal demon) after she escapes an arranged marriage.
The Netflix format means it's more of a serialized story told in episodes rather than the individual, gag-packed nature of The Simpsons and Futurama. I've watched the first episode and am already hooked. The gags aren't packed as densely as they are in Futurama, but the latter-style of humor is clearly on display in everything from intricate jokes to throwaway gags that you'll miss if you aren't watching or listening closely. There are 10 episodes in the 1st season.

I'm waiting for the plot to pay off. Also I've only seen most of episode one. :p
It has a very different pace and feel from his previous shows. Much of what happens in the first seven episodes is setting the stage for the last three.
And the last three are both hilarious and gut-wrenching. It is new territory for Groening.
