FUNPAK - Week 9 Review - PT2

Last Week's Winner: The Manly Bee

This Week's Show Featured: Coolman!, Martini and Meatballs, The Wild Wild Circus Company and Miracle Koala

First off Russell Sprouts is the man! Thanks to Russell who pointed me in the direction of this week's episode on-line

The Manly Bee puts another notch on it's belt. Can anyone catch him? There's only three weeks left.

Coolman was disapointing this week. I think that the premise of this series is running thin. If these episodes were created in the order that they were broadcast I think the funds were starting to run out. I'm sure if I go back and look more closely at previous episodes it's probably there but this week seemed to be more evident of objects sliding across the screen rather than being animated.

I'm not going to say I don't like the Wild Wild Circus Company put I'm clearly not in this show's demographic so I'll leave it alone. Except to say that the directing of this episode was absolutely terrible. There were reaction shots to action you didn't know was happening, crappy camera spinning around a fixed point shots, very amateurish.

The Miracle Koala was a 5 minute montage. Montages rarely come off well, to do an entire show as a montage, that's just bad. Although I did like the ending with the bit of Canadiana thrown in.

Martini & Meatballs

Sputnik and Paris - Sputnik crashes to earth and catapults Martini to PARIS!

WOW! What a great episode. Ten times better than any other show this week. There was a monkey on a unicycle who's a mime, Russian bears and a reference of Dr. Strangelove. C'mon! If this show doesn't win this week everyone needs to go have their head examined.

Do you ever get tired of being right? ahahah!

Where is your site? I'm sure it's much better than mine, you seem to have all the info. All I have is what TV tells me. There aren't too many sources of info on the series out there.

Thanks again!
