Fans of this show are probably wondering why it took so long to mention it. (1) I didn’t know there was an official posting of the pilot. (2) It took me a long time to finally check this out. I’ve spent my own time recovering from crisis after crisis the past year, but I could have used this show while I was in the hospital. Which would also be fitting given the show.
While Cartoon Network seems trapped in one style of cartoon to the point that any exceptions (like Transformers: Robots In Disguise or Justice League Action are treated as an afterthought in their schedule) Disney XD is more than willing to bring variety to their lineup. I don’t just mean that they actually have action shows they treat with respect, but that they’re willing to create various kinds of action shows, and some really good ones. Take for example tonight’s offering, Milo Murphy’s Law.
Created by the same team that created the breakout hit Phineas And Ferb, Milo Murphy’s Law follows the title character, a descendant of the first victim of Murphy’s Law. You know, “anything that can go wrong will go wrong”. Only in Milo’s case (and his father’s) that goes to insane levels. It doesn’t help that Swamp City is pretty much on the crazy side to being with. This is a town where llama’s perform Shakespeare and the theme park is centered around lard. But the conflict for Milo and his friends Zack Underwood and Melissa Chase is dealing with the crazy fallout of Murphy’s Law. Tonight I am able to bring you the pilot episode as Zack first meets Milo and the crazy life he is about to become part of.
