Fox sent me this dvd to review and I finally got a chance to watch it the other day. I thought that it was the second movie, but it turned out to be a disc with a bunch of episodes from a Kung Fu Panda TV show.
At first I was a bit disappointed.
Then I started watching it.
It was actually quite good. The voices, the CGI work, and the music in each episode are really well done. There is tons of silly humour and all-around goofiness for the kids. Add to that a whole bunch of ass kicking by animals, and you have a pretty entertaining couple of hours.
Is it the same as the movies? No.
I have only seen the first one, but the show is a bit different in that it probably appeals more to kids than adults. It also has different bad guys and scenarios as Po studies in and protects the Valley Of Peace with the rest of the Furious Five and Master Shifu. There’s a lot of the same elements, but these shows are pretty “lesson” driven, with less adult oriented humour.
Unless of course you are me. I get chuckles out of some of the corny jokes on here. I also loved Bugs Bunny though, so take that as you will. They had some pretty corny one-liners on that show.
Oh, and did anyone else get a chub from Tigress? No? Me neither. She’s too intense for me, but I bet she’s a wildcat in the sack. So much precision and accuracy. Rawr.
You creeped out yet? Cool, you might as well check out the trailer for this then.
So, in a nutshell we have a pretty entertaining show, but more so for children than adults. If you’re looking for extensions of the movie, don’t bother, because these aren’t them. They are good, just different, so don’t go watch them and tear them down because they aren’t the same; you should tear them down because they are only two hours long, and it takes you three hours to get the full benefit of the magnum of Baby Duck you just drank in the laundry room.
This means that mommy is going to have to switch DVDs with a big dent in the motor skills section of her brain, and that someone is probably going to get a time out when mommy can’t get the upside down Harry Connick Jr. CD to play Backyardigans in the BluRay player. You should never snicker at mommy when her lips are pink and she’s burping a lot.
P.S. Comment on here if you want this copy. I’m not putting g i v e a w a y in the posts anymore because there are a bunch of people that just Google that and other keywords and go around trying to win shit. If one of our readers doesn’t want our schtuff, then one of our friends will. Cheers.
