"What is wrong with people? A kid show has to still be smart and funny and not patronizing. The Wiggles is anything but that. It stars these four bizarre fellas who live in Pee Wee's summer home with some oddly low-budget puppets and dance a lot. The acting abilities of these four Brits is questionable, since they overdo all of their lines like kids won't be able to understand them otherwise... We also get some really dopey concert scenes where the 'Wiggles' sing a very repetitive song while shaking their tails..."
A kids show doesn't have to entertain adults. Patronising? It's a show for children, and they seem to enjoy it immensely. The Wiggles themselves have absolutely no pretensions at all. Oddly low budget sets and puppets? Last year they made $34 million and they always invest most of it back into the franchise. He claims that these "Brits" overdo all there dialogue so the kids can't even understand it. First off they are not Brits. Second, all kid entertainers overdo everything- children don't react well with subtlety. And third, if they overdo it so much the kids can't understand it, then how can they sing along to every last one of their songs in concerts and on TV? Criticising a kids show for being repetitive? You are obviously unaware of the fact that kids need repetition to learn- why do you think all kids shows have such a strict pattern and are repeated so much? Uh huh.
And that's the end of that chapter.
