Significantly worse than the first stories. Nothing like 20 minutes of a snot nosed whiny brat. "Girls are yucky. I wanna learn swords. Everything annoys and/or bores me. You don’t really understand how I feel!" Etc etc. It was just really generic and fairly annoying throughout. The only interesting thing, to be very generous with the term, was the censored snake. Not entirely certain why it was censored. That was probably supposed to be a ‘joke,’ but it’d be far funnier if they were censoring the phallus hats instead.
I guess I’ll glance through next week’s, but I’m already kind of tuning out and can’t see it doing much to change my mind. An episode per story does work better than the half episode chunks from last week, but this one suffered from a really annoying lead for it and a particularly cliched and moronic story. I wasn’t all that enamored of the first episode to begin with. It needs a lot more added depth and emotion to the stories instead of a bunch of people lounging around with the progress and end results always being fairly obvious for each one so far.
