Anyway this episode was a little meh for me, wasn't horrible. Frankly I didn't find the punchline about the crabs funny at all, and honestly I think they went too far with Carl elongating himself, they should have stopped with the wheel barrel joke. Other than that I found some funny moments, but some just plain gross out moments. Carl's fighting Frylock was okay, and the opening was okay too... but I think I miss the Doc.
"Unremarkable Voyage" left a bad taste in my mouth. A edge of disgust has always been part of Aquateen Hunger Force, but it's traditionally been applied with greater care and judiciousness. Tonight it was pure, inane shock. I suppose that criticism may be on shakey ground, but I stand by my right to not like this episode. The actual visual rendering of Carl's "enhancement" was something I could have done without and rather disliked. Couple that with a dearth of strong gags and I think I have found what shall, I hope, be my least favorite episode of ATHF.
This episode was the equivalent of whatever the hell that crap that led to use beholding that "nifty" new Master Shake vomiting animation. * out of *****
Man, that last shot of the crabs hopping out of Carl's pants sure sticks in the mind like the first time you saw a dead body, doesn't it?
Fantastic episode, especially when you consider most "main characters get shrunk" episodes are dire, awful, and full of swelling suck.
Highlights include Spacecataz (including the "full frontal" from Ir, complete with blurring) the diorama battle (the hastily drawn background was a nice touch) Shake and Meatwad randomly growing everything they could get their hands on and Frylock's revenge on Shake.
Also, Tiny Carl and Tiny Frylock's voices just make everything they say hysterical. B
Okay, funny episode. Looks like Spacecataz is going to be one that stays. Loved the rather strange opening. Then of course was the shrinking scenes which could have done the same thing as "Incredible Voyage", but like any ATHF episode it does not follow that and we're treated to extremely strange shrink sequences and the like.
Is Master Shake gonna be the new Kenny of recent popular animated adult television or something? He should not really die each episode if this will become a trend.
pretty meh tonight... there were some really funny bitsa, and some over the top disgusting bits. They really did go overboard here - although I don't think you can argue that Shake DIDN'T deserve what happened here.
I have a feeling the writers (Matt and Dave) probably wanted this to be a super gross out episode. Hell, AS even warned us about it. It was still funny. I mean, looking pass the barf, the incredbiley in your face innuendo, the violence (the gang making Shake kill himself) etc, it was a pretty good episode. Not a personal favorite, but still pretty good. Hey, I believe someone said last week they wanted to see Shake die in every episode. Well, looks like they're wish is coming true. He's died in both "Video Oujia" and this episode. Maybe he'll die next episode, maybe he won't. You never know.
THAT was pushing it. Bodily violence is nothing new to this show, and OCCASIONALLY funny, but that was pushing it. That and the CRABS. CUTE. CARTOONEY.LOOKING.CRABS. NEVER.AGAIN.
Or maybe my sense of humor needs some work. I try to see past the grossness of stuff, but often some stuff has nothing else and vulgarness is all its got.
ANYWAY, the rest of the episode was funny. Everyone's already beat me to it, but seeing Carl duel Fry-Man, the shrink in general, and seeing Shake rule over them, but fortunately they stop him in the end (abit gross though).
By the way, why bust Shake's eye when Meatwad got out of the mouth, not to mention they got in pretty fine in the first place
Modern day Disney's problem isn't that the studio has "gone woke", it's that they're stuck in a rut. Disney's keep recycling the same types of stories and ideas. I want Wish to succeed, but the film looks so basic. How many Frozens and Encantos can you have?
I'm constantly amazed by the number of people who have the internet but don't use the internet.
If you genuinely wish to start a serious discussion, then I'm cool with that; that's what a forum is for, but if you're just spamming the board or flooding someone's inbox with simple, basic questions you could easily find the answers to by Googling, then you're wasting my time and time wasters stick right in my craw.
