12/9/20 update: Hoops has been cancelled.
This show is awesome. Just because the critics don’t like it doesn’t mean anything. Have you seen since of the huge gaps between critics and veiwer reviews for other shows and movies? The critics have a huge reality gap from the actual veiwers. This show is gold, bring it back
I personally love this show! If you’re okay with a little explicit humor and like the adult cartoon types, then I would totally watch this show. It’s only negative reviews from parents and other websites are the fact that it uses explicit language; but it has a maturity warning and is marketed as an adult cartoon- like a lot of other shows on tv nowadays- this one happens to have great voice acting, writing, and silly moments that keep you entertained!
