Was a little more “Disney-esque/Nicklodeanish” than expected but overall entertaining.

Oof, that is a damning statement.
It’s still entertaining, just . . . don’t know how quite to put my finger on it . . . aw yeah I do, but don’t want to admit it . . . it’s how I described it before.

Didn’t make it past the first 20 minutes.

Wasn’t feeling Gomez and Morticia at all. Big shoes to fill stepping in for Raul Julia and Angelica Houston.

Yeah, you put it perfectly. I think the only thing worse than you described would be a Disney sequel series to Firefly following a younger generation *shudder*

We almost didn't make it through the first half of Episode one but glad we stuck around. The show IMO just gets better and better. We are on Episode 4 and loving it. The only casting the wife and I really really didn't like was Gomez. Terrible choice. Other than that we really like the cast. Glad we didn't jump when we wanted to (Episode 1). The show has real legs IMO.

Nickelodian-y or Disney-y?

I’d agree with this and still say Disney-ish/Nickelodeon-esque. But obviously darker. I know that seems like a contradiction. Maybe it’s just her roommate and the lead siren girl and the love triangle, and it being angsty kids.

I don't agree with that take honestly. I think it's a touch of CW teen with an obvious Tim Burton feel to it IMO. Almost like Tim Burton's twisted idea of Buffy.

Evidently, this show broke the Netflix record for the most hours viewed in a week for an English-language TV series, with 341.23M hours. I guess it's a huge hit.

I didn’t get any Disney or Nickelodeon vibes, but I definitely got CW vibes. I enjoyed it though. Jenna Ortega was fabulous.

As this progressed it got better and better. Less Disney/nicklodeany. More burtony and going way out on a limb almost harry potterish by the end, which was freaking fantastic.

This ended up being a terrific show.
