Silly, but that's the charm. Its clever humor is well scripted by Max Landis, akin to that of his father, John. What really makes it is the performance of Brian Benben, who nails all the comedic beats, with a fantastic sense of comedic timing. Deer Woman is the most traditional of all of the M.O.H. 1st season episodes, and is one of the most basic in story/plot, but it's also one of the more consistently fun ones.
Goofy, a little insensitive, but with an undeniable charm that highlights the benefits of not taking silly material too seriously. It needed a few more twists, finishing not far enough from where it starts, but showed me that I might be in the market for a Kwaidan style anthology of Native American mythology stories.
