'Velma' Scores Positive First Reviews

The first reviews for HBO Max's Velma are beginning to trickle in and they're positive so far. The show apparently is very meta and self-aware and almost too smart for its own good. 

From The Hollywood Reporter...

It’s too smart for all of that, or so it believes. From its first minutes, Velma is a thoroughly meta affair, winking at the sillier staples of the Scooby-Doo universe, at the lore and the stereotypes built around its characters, at the absurdity of TV screenwriting conventions in general. But if Velma delights in sending up all the usual tropes, it seems somewhat less sure of what it has to offer in their stead.
