Back in the 80's my brother & I were into a bunch of different things including games like Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) and Ultima on the computer. Even now I'm a sucker for watching any D&D-like movies or shows; doesn't matter the quality. There's been a few D&D type animated shows over the years but usually aimed at kids. The Legend of Vox Machina by contrast is an enjoyable D&D inspired animated series made for and targeted to adults. It is based on the D&D web series Critical Role.

The first season is 12 episodes long and is interesting in that the first 10 episodes were funded by Kickstarter campaigns before Amazon picked up the series. Amazon has already picked up the series for a second season.

If you're after some bawdry animated D&D fun, give it a try. If you're not deep into the D&D mythology, don't worry, no knowledge ahead of time is required.
