I gave this a go based solely on Tony Hale & Kristen Schaal, and it does have a Wes Anderson vibe (slightly more fantastical, but not quite to the level of Pushing Daisies). I enjoyed the first two episodes, so I'll continue watching it for now.

I really like where this show is going so far, even if I want to put Constance on a catapult and launch her into the sun. I'm sure that's the point.
