Apparently I missed this one when it was released, uh… a month ago maybe? Turns out I probably needn’t have bothered. TMS may have been inconsistent when they were in charge of this show, but at least they had high points. Brain’s Base has just been putting less and less effort into these as they’ve gone along. This was embarrassingly poorly made and it certainly doesn’t help when they slow motion to let everyone get a good look at things like eyes moving independently around faces either. I don’t even know what they expect anybody to be excited for in this one.
