It's the hammiest melodrama I've ever seen and I absolutely love it. I'm surprised Evil Tuxedo Mask didn't tie anyone to a train track and the reveal of Queen Beryl behind his cape was just masterful. Also, the Guardians slowly realizing their fearless leader is a bit of a ditz was pretty funny. I have no idea why people hated the first season. On the other hand, I tend to enjoy melodrama more than most.
