Samson you old dog
22 February 2007 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Whether you're the type that is already loaded at 4 in the afternoon or a child, everybody loves "Samson", just because it's tough not to. In short, Samson is a dim-witted dog who lives in a suspiciously big house with his chronically unemployed owner Gert. Everyday their friends come to visit them and get them into mildly wacky adventures, while conversing pretty much entirely in catch phrases. The writing was far from great but hey, I wouldn't want it any other way.

That brings us to nowadays. Even if you do ignore the fact that we're dealing with an almost 20-year-old dog now, the show has just become painfully stupid. The plots are really just rehashes of other plots which were rehashes of other plots. Also, it's for kids and all but I don't remember the characters being this stupid. It takes them forever to figure things out. One of these friends sees a donkey standing in the kitchen. He calmly goes: oh it's a donkey. Seven bajillion years later: A donkey?! But the worst thing about it now is the foul stench of commercials that's all over this show. This series genuinely wanted to entertain kids back in the old days, nowadays it's just yet another way of hooking them up with shoddy merchandising. When somebody is thirsty, and they're thirsty all the time, they drink Samson lemonade, and to add insult to injury they're also forced to eat Samson cookies. When there's a mosquito plague, they wear Samson helmets (helmets against mosquitoes?). Get into the commercial breaks and out of my pleasant memories, damn it. Also, the actor who plays Gert is so rich and powerful nowadays that he pretty much controls Belgium in an Orwell-like fashion, which makes it kinda ridiculous to have him play a hapless loser all the time. Oh well, it was good run.
