"Not my cup of tea.""If you want a good laugh, you probably won't find it here."
"It's just my opinion but my opinion applies to everyone"(?)

I have no idea what you mean by cliched or uninspired. I legitimately enjoyed what it would be like if Hell were to become a modern civilized society. The fact that their demonic aspects are downplayed is part of the larger joke for the most part. And that really comes into play in some of the later strips, where things are jumping between mundane and crazy in hilarious ways. And there's some worldbuilding towards the final chapters that's genuinely great.

"you can see the punchline coming from a million miles away" I legitimately have no idea what your talking about here.

"it just isn't special or memorable in any way"
It definitely plays on the more reserved side in the beginning, with a few absurd/fantastic elements for humor, but that contrast really builds throughout the series in a way that makes individual strips funnier and the story as a whole more satisfying.

I can respect your opinion but your review is really just a bunch of vague negative generalizations.

This is your regular web comic, nothing extraordinary. The question is simply if you like the humour. For me it just didn't work. The jokes are flat, you can see the punchline coming from a million miles away and it just isn't special or memorable in any way. The setting, although it may seem interesting at first, is used in such a clichee and uninspired way, that you wouldn't even notice, if not for the fact that everyone has horns or tentacles. If you want a good laugh, you probably won't find it here.
