Overlord and the Underwoods is a half-hour comedy about a typical North American family whose lives change drastically when a distant relative moves in. Distant in two senses, actually. Distant like, “Hey look at that! We share a tenuous connection to an ancestor who lived a long time ago.” And distant like, “Hey look at that! You live in another galaxy.” Overlord, the 2nd most wanted villain in the universe, is forced into witness protection when he rats out the 1st most wanted villain in the universe. The IGDC (Inter-Galactic Detention Centre) sends Overlord to live with his incredibly nice cousins on Earth. Since they’re family, they’re the only people in the universe willing to take him in. This series is your typical space-fish out of cosmic-water story. The Underwoods, in contrast to Overlord, are great people. Technically anyone in contrast to Overlord is a great person, but the Underwoods truly represent the best of humanity. The parents, Flower and Tim, have dedicated their lives to helping animals (because they’re adorbs). Their daughter, Peyton, is a lot like other girls her age. She keeps active on social media trying to share her voice with the world. She’s not quite certain what her voice is yet, but she’ll keep talking until she finds it. Their son, Weaver is creative, true, but he also ties himself up in expectations of perfection. And it’s crazy difficult to move forward when you’re tied up. In an odd way Overlord’s presence serves to make him a better person. And Weaver reciprocates by slowly making Overlord a slightly more compassionate being. Overlord is far from perfect, but none of the Underwoods are perfect either. As the series grows, so to do their relationships. Each episode is an opportunity for Overlord to make the Underwoods stronger individuals and for the Underwoods to make Overlord a better… overlord? I guess that works.
No phone calls, please.
