Reviews: Secret Mountain Fort Awesome
"Secret Mountain Fort Awesome" is NOT awesome.
This is bad. I mean, it's just BAD. How did anyone come up with this?! Never before in my entire life have I been so repelled by a cartoon. I love cartoons and animated movies of all kinds, but this is just...wow. I liked Cartoon Network for going in a new direction with shows like Adventure Time, The Amazing World of Gumball, and most of all Regular Show, but when Problem Solverz aired, let's just say that my expectations for Cartoon Network plummeted. And now with this show, it seems that things are going from bad to worse. This show is not just hard to look at, it's GROSS. One of the characters has throbbing zits all over his body, and another character is composed entirely of butts. BUTTS. If that doesn't sound bad enough, the "pet dog" looks like he is about to die from malnutrition. Is THIS what people now classify as entertainment?!! Also, the plot for the episode I saw made no sense. The disgustoids all put on mustaches and looked like FULL REALISTIC MALE COPS?!! How does that make any sense?!! I mean, I know it's a cartoon but REALLY?!! Plus, all these characters do is act like a bunch of JERKS through the entire episode. In fact, the freaking BUTT MONSTER is the only one with common sense. I could go on and on, but the bottom line is, STAY AWAY FROM THIS SHOW!!
Secret Mountain Fort Awsome is a nice show, but not great.
While SMFA is grotesque, it is a nice blend of Chowder and Freakazoid. While I agree that the toliet humor is overplayed, its been getting better every snce Season 2 started. Festro is a perfect example of an anti-hero done right. Dingle is cute for a starving dog booger thing. The Fart is more then meets the eye. Gweelok is a perfect geek. The best part of the show, however, is the voice acting. The voiceacting is narmy and is hilarious. However, this show does have it bad side. For one, the animation is kinda choppy. It looks like its still using ink shading. It also has ridiculous story lines. Overrall, the show is god, but not great. They could fix up the animation. However, its good enough to not be shot down by the big man.
I'll give this a 8.5 out of 10.
Cartoon Network, I am ashamed of you
This is one of the worst shows I've ever had the displeasure of seeing. To be honest, I haven't seen many episodes but I don't want to see anymore of this. I get that cartoons are suppose to be dumb but this is too much for me. I can't stand to even look at the characters, the dialogue makes me feel like I'm losing brain cells, and it's just too ridiculous. It's not even that funny! I understand that kind of show-the one of stupid kids doing stupid things and not learning their lesson-and I can usually deal with it-sometimes I enjoy it-but in this case, it's just too grotesque for me. I can't stand the fart jokes, the Accidental Nightmare Fuel, or the anything about this show really. Like I said earlier, it's just too extreme for me. I don't see how anyone can like this and if they do, I don't see them looking back on this series years from now with any fondness.
Its a great show!!!
It's one of those shows some people will like and some won't. It's a lot different than CN's other shows. Most of the lineup is "cute" animals/things. Not the case here. It's not intended as "cute" as a young adorable teenage kitty cat having adventures with his pudgy orange fish friend or a boy and his dog having fun in the candy kingdom... For many, that's a huge turn off. not me. It works for this show to be "ugly". it's part of the humour. In my opinion, its well written and the characters are likeable. As far as the toilet humour goes, it's not really THAT bad about it as one would think at first glance.
I'd totally recommend it to anyone who's into this kind of thing in the slightest. If not its understandable. I'd still give it a shot.
