I love Nickelodean a lot, I grew up on the likes of Rugrats, The Wild Thornberrys, Angry Beavers, Ren and Stimpy and Rocko's Modern Life, and I liked Spongebob Squarepants before it for me lost its appeal. Tak & the Power of Juju is one of my least favourite Nickelodean shows, not as bad as ChalkZone and Fanboy and Chum Chum, but in all honesty the only show of theirs in recent years I genuinely loved was Avatar:The Last Airbender.
I have not played the games, but know the basic outline of them. Regardless I always try to judge a series/film on its own merits, which is what I am doing now. I do really dislike the animation here, the backgrounds are rather dull, the colours flat and the character designs out of proportion and unpleasant to look at. The music didn't do much either, at best it was forgettable, at worst it was repetitive, the theme tune especially is quite grating.
The writing is poor, with stale jokes and dialogue that feels forced and unfunny, while the stories are uninvolving and lacking in any excitement. The characters I don't care for either, Tak is for me the most irritating Nickelodean titular character and the villain had potential but due to him being underused and underdeveloped this potential isn't lived up to. The voice acting consists of talented actors no doubt, but the voices themselves are annoying, at least to me.
All in all, a weak show and one of Nickelodean's worst. 1/10 Bethany Cox
