Well, here's the 5th installment of my Jim and Pals Shorts series. The full name is Jim and Pals Shorts Ep. 5: Portal Mishaps. Like I say in all of these, they're not meant to be groundbreaking animation wise, I just hope they make you chuckle. Enjoy.



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Giving it a 7 only cuz...

A) There were only 5 small skits
B) You were more or less just following a fad, making this not very original
C) Only 2 of the skits have I not seen before in another Portal parody.

You were a little too late with your portal goodness (just by about 2 months). If you wanna get in on a fad, try to do it too late, or else it feels strange or unoriginal.

Anyway, to the positives though, nice animation, smooth, and well thought out. Only real problem here is that the character you always use was...well...used again?

Anyway good luck in ur future endeavors. (lol pun on "future")

Jimtopia responds:

Okay, in response to "A," yes, there were only 5 small skits, but like I wrote, this is a short, it's not meant to be long, I understand your view, but Jim and Pals Shorts are never meant to be long.

In response to "B," I understand this is not very original, and most of my cartoons ARE original, you must understand; for this one, I just needed something funny to work with, so I thought out some skits involving one of my favorite games, and this is what came of it.

In response to "C," yeah, well I didn't look through all the portal parodies, so I figured a few of these jokes would have been done before.

Okay, so to the rest of your review, I know I was late, but I hoped people would overlook that; I mean, it's not like I've been working on this for 2 months or anything, I just decided to do this now instead of 2 months ago is all.

I'm glad you thought the animation was smooth, I take a fair amount of time making sure it looks smooth, and about the character, that's my character, that's Jim; I'm Jimtopia. :)

Your scripting is good,

But the animation is weak.
Try some fbf for once.
It was funny, but at the same time, boring to watch.
Tweens get boring, Fast.

Jimtopia responds:

I am very aware of how good FBF looks, and I know a lot about it. Like I said this is not supposed to look great, it's just something I make to entertain people.
