So, the games were a gigantic flop. To be fair we all kind of expected it. But what about the TV show that the games were made as a tie-in for? What are your thoughts on that? I watched the first 9 or 10 episodes so I think I got enough of a feel for it to give my opinion.
Personally, I can't see myself watching anymore of it. It's harmless, but kind of boring in my opinion. Which is disappointing because the teaser showing the first scene of Sonic and Tails battling Eggman in the canyon with the robot "burn-bot" gave the impression that this would be an action adventure kind of show. In actuality, it is a slice-of-life sitcom with tired tropes and humor that falls flat. It's like if you took the Power Rangers and removed all the Japanese stock footage. The worst part is the villain, Eggman. Can I even call him a villain in this show? I'd say he's more like an annoying neighbor. The characters don't even treat him like a threat, they just let him crash at their houses, stand in line with him at the burger place, one episode had Amy volunteering to redecorate his evil lair. That's right, Eggman here is less of a threat than his rendition in the "Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog" cartoon series.
On the plus side, the animation is pretty good.
