I was responding to the assertion that fans of the show "should feel bad".
It's saturated with self loathing, and built on sardonic, and overtly nihilistic themes. It's not all, or even mostly bad feelings, but they're in there.
It's also engaging, and layered, but it gets some misplaced defensiveness from it's audience. It's a crass, cartoon comedy. Fans should enjoy that it's a dumb cartoon show, and not try to hype it for something it's not.
