First thing I thought when seeing this was the early days of Knox claymation. Even though there's a lot of stop motion around these days, and Robot Chicken sets a high standard for both animation quality and humour, I found this refreshing and engaging.
Interested to see where you're going with the characters, liked the jokes/delivery, generally digging the style.
Or maybe I'm just a sucker for Football in the Groin.
Okay,Cpt Americas face is in constant "zero fucks given" mode...that alone made this work for me...and racist Gandalf
How can Gandolf complain about people hiding their faces with a power ranger standing right next to him? Guess he doesn't have a problem with red men.
Gandalf, in this show, is senile and ignorant. He more or less follows the idea that Good is good and bad is bad and doesn't put much thought into it.
Beyond that, his "racism" is our little dig at the fact that LoTR has ZERO heroes of color. As a character, he doesn't know any better. All Gandalf knows is that every good person he's ever seen has been white, and every bad person (with a few exceptions) has been brown or referred to as "black". "Black riders" for example. When he says, "eliminated the blacks", that's what he's referencing.
I do not in any way support any sort or racism or sexism, but from a writing and creating standpoint, I think it's interesting to have a character that is otherwise good with a MAJOR flaw.
Besides, it's a series, there's room for character development.
Thanks for taking the time to comment.
Really enjoyed this. Stop motion wasn't perfect but it did the trick. Voice acting was great, definitely added to the fun of it all.
I think the best sign that I enjoyed it was that I was annoyed when it finished. I could easily watch 5+ minutes of this if the quality and humour remains to this standard.
Go make more.
Thanks dude, that means a lot. This is literally the first thing I animated ever so I'm surprised to even get decent reviews.
Good news is, more are coming. The next two episodes are recorded and the two after that are scripted.
