I was very unhappy with this episode.It lacked the charisma of the show and not because Finn and Jake weren't around. You made Root Beer Guy an entertaining episode without them, but the silence of this character and poorly explored themes bored me. You already explored silence in Shh! with much better comical results. In this episode the silence was annoying.The themes or ideas of imprisonment via King Kong and sad clown acts were boring after being revisited in media so often.This isn't to be angry at you. I hope you take this as advice from a fan who really cares about the show and was unhappy with what you tried to do which ultimately failed to be funny and entertaining to me.
100% agree with you. Sorry to say it Graham, but this is the worst AT episode. The magic and creativity was missing altogether. These greed and exploitation themes have been played out over and over throughout the years in much the same manner--none of the unique AT spin was incorporated in the story or characters.As Jonathan said, your exploration of silence in this story made for an incredibly boring episode. Shh! was an excellent execution of the idea and the personalities of Finn & Jake were expanded in a wonderful way.Wildly disappointing. This one should have stayed on the plate and ended up in the garbage. I love how AT incorporates these off the wall episodes by guest writers and artists, and you've had good episodes in the past, but Sad Face is a prime example of how that can go disastrously wrong. =(
Well, I liked the story outline! Maybe my treatment of it was lame, that wouldn't surprise me!
really enjoy some of you done in the episode graham like the bugs the obstacles :) surely your having a blast working in the show..
Thanks Rafael! Yes it's a rare experience, to work with this show!
Nice episode, Mr. Falk. When Sad Face gets a hold of the whip, watch out! The ending was nice too.
This was quite experimental. I loved it.
Thanks! -- Yes I liked the story idea.
So, were asked to work on this episode due to your experience with working with small yellow characters that don't talk?
Heh heh yes I guess that's my life now!
Neat! How did you get involved with the show?
Just some phone calls, I think. Or -- emails!
