I liked the animation and a couple of the jokes but the story was very weak and the parts that were supposed to be bittersweet didn't connect. They should have had a great script and then animated it, but this seemed like the animation was the driving force and the writing was an afterthought. The show had a strong first year with some nice character writing, but this season it's becoming a collection of gimmicks.
I thought the Joel McHale... puppet? looked the least like the actor of any of them.
