FUNPAK - Week 8 Review

Last Week's Winner: The Manly Bee

This Week's Show Featured: Harold Rosenbaulm Chartered Accountant Extreme, Rotting Hills, Gruesomestein's Monsters and The Manly Bee

The unimaginable has happened, Sidekick actual lost. The Manly Bee somehow managed to take down Sidekick last week. Both shows probably had their weakest offerings to date as well. The Manly Bee had a confusing plasticine clone that was terribly hard to make out because of the swirling texture it was painted with. Sidekick felt like it was some bad screenplay conversion from book to screen were new characters we're not properly introduced and it relied to heavily on knowing the characters previously. I also think that the stretch-squash is abused in the show and I find it hard to watch without picking it apart. That being said I have to congradulate the Manly Bee for finally taking down the juggernaut know as Sidekick.

Now on to Week 8. Every week I seem to find myself saying, "This week's show is probably going to be a let down because all of the big series were on last week" I happy to report that every week I am wrong, this just goes to show what great product YTV and Nelvana are putting out there.

Harold Rosenbaum is getting better every episode, I actually chuckled at a couple of the Ledger Lad jokes this week. This series got off to a really slow start but I think it might be too little too late as other shows have also gotten better and still out pace this show.

Rotting Hills was a decent episode this week. I've liked this show in the past for its slick animation but this week the accent on Zoey is just a little too much that I find it slightly annoying and distracting.

The Manly Bee offered up a more solid episode than the previous week but in my mind it wasn't enough to top Gruesomestein's Monsters.

Vote: Gruesomestein's Monsters

Gruesomestein's Monsters

The Worst Date- Blind Date meets The Bride of Frankenstein. What has James got himself into.

The level of detail in this show is fantastic, look at the backgrounds. Every episode has featured a different cast of characters ripping on a classic monster tale. This time the Bride of Frankenstein has a blind date.

Once again I turn to Aaron Simpson at Cold Hard Flash who conducted a great interview with Mark Ackland and Riccardo Durante the creaters of Gruesomestein's Monsters. Check it out:
