Super Science Friends! - New Animation Series
« on: November 21, 2015, 10:54:59 AM »
So guys... finally, the first episode is out. What do you think? On this episode, Churchill sends Einstein, Tesla, Freud, Marie Curie, Darwin and Tapputi(?) back in time, where they end up meeting Isaac Newton!

Super Science Friends - Episode 1: The Phantom Premise

So, what do you guys think? After watching the episode, share your opinions!

The animation is fun and all... I just didn't get bowled over by the characters, story or jokes. Maybe I'm too critical, but i'd like there to be some actual science going on in Super Science Friends. Some meat.
Like, science history is just the "skin" of this sitcom, y'know? Kinda like it is for the show Big Bang Theory. The jokes are of a science "flavor", without delivering any substance or heart. And the characters are pretty one-dimensional so far. Young Einstein has a little to him, but the others are just kinda... one-off gags.
So far... we'll see.

I tend to agree with Henning...it looks great, and I liked the music, but the story was a bit weak.  It felt like the creators weren't quite sure how to end the episode.  I'll watch another and see how it goes.

I agree with the consensus.  It's short enough that I'll give it another try.
