a different look, not an improvement
29 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

Mr. Floppy has been updated, for no reason at all. He now sports a darker snout, which looks a bit like a shadowy black mask. Check it out, He looks completely different, see? Why fix him when he wasn't broke? And that, unfortunately, is the minor complaint. More serious is that the humor around Floppy in this episode, all sound forced. It's not as super-cool smooth as in Season One. Bobcat is noticeably not on the level he had in Season One. This is a warning light.

The set-up has also changed. Jack is now back from his "bachelor pad" back in the family home, down in the basement. The look is different, and with all already mentioned, takes a bit of getting used to. Would have been possible, except for the damning fact that, like I said, the humor comes across as forced. As if they expected this to be as funny as back in Season One simply because it is the madcap bunny spewing the lines. Well, it doesn't just happen, people, you'll have to put more into it.

It is still highly watchable, but for a purist like me, the difference is unsettling. Why, why, why mess with a winning recipe?

Fortunately, Nikki Cox hadn't been tampered with. No dark face for her, what a relief! She still looks every bit as scrumptious as in the previous season. So, no real complaint from me, just saying I noticed the completely unnecessary changes.
