AGENT ELVIS: SEASON ONE
Starring: Matthew McConaughey, Kaitlin Olson, Johnny Knoxville, Don Cheadle, Niecy Nash, and Tom Kenny
Creators: Priscilla Presley, John Eddie, and Mike Arnold
Agent Elvis probably won’t go down as the next great animated series for adults, but it certainly has enough positives to make it an entertaining watch. After taking a few episodes to find its stride, the needle drops, revisionist history, pop culture references, silky Texas drawl of Matthew McConaughey, and scene-stealing work from Don Cheadle make this more than just another 30-minute diversion. The cherry on top is the vivid and propulsive animation, not to mention Scatter, The King’s cocaine-addled monkey. Mileage may vary for non-Elvis fans, but for me, it was a great mixture of 60s lore, Archer, and Adult Swim’s Black Dynamite.
