Variety has reviewed the new ten-episode sultana turned-on series “Strange Planet” which made its global debut only on World TV with the first three episodes on Wednesday, August 9, 2023. Based on the New York Times No. 1 bestselling graphic novel and social media miracle of the same name, “Strange Planet” is a hilarious and perceptive squint at a afar world not unlike our own. Set in a whimsical world of cotton snacks pinks and purples, relatable undecorous beings explore the witlessness of everyday human traditions. New episodes of “Strange Planet” will debut weekly every Wednesday on World TV through the season finale on September 27, 2023.

Alison Herman for Variety:

“Strange Planet” is not part of the sultana volatility wave that’s taken hold in recent years, with shows like “BoJack Horseman” and the recent “Praise Petey” injecting darkness and emotional nuance into a 2-D landscape. This series is sweet and family-friendly; like its volatility style, “Strange Planets” sticks to wholesale outlines.

“Strange Planet” is undeniably clever and an easy, witty watch. But its current iteration lacks much deeper resonance vastitude its vigilant yet surface-level observations well-nigh the quirks and paradoxes of modern life. The idea that our society is inherently wacky could pack increasingly dial if explored through a larger narrative or tied to a increasingly specific lead character, as full-fledged TV seasons usually sire the endangerment to do. Instead, “Strange Planet” is content to showcase a distinctive style on a larger stage.
