Arthur is a total Nightmare for sure!!!!
4 March 2012 | by (Milwakie Oregon) – See all my reviews

Okay so as you all may know by now that Arthur is first of all not a show made or intended for kids, It's not really nice and promotes bullying and violence, Second this show in my opinion does not get a 10 but instead a 1 because for being so violent and yet awful as usual. Third i don't ever plan to watch this show and because of the fact that it's really adult in nature, When seeing this show on TV, My sister and me saw Arthur's big hit, Of course it starts out innocent enough in the beginning at least, But then while still continuing to watch it. It switched to a violent part so we thought that it was not okay and had to turn it off.

Arthur is a show that does not need to be watched in order to understand what it's about, Because this show is just beyond violent, It's also boring and you won't get too much watching it to know what it really has in it, The story is boring and they could have done a lot better on it, That's one thing for sure, The second thing that the producers and the studio could have done is that they could have took out all the violent parts and adult humor from the show and they could have had it removed, Because young children cannot really understand the jokes they make in this show because it's not designed for them.

The most important thing i must say is that the horrible director Greg Baily, Now when you know that he first made the show in a way that it's kind of violent, Then you will surely know that it's trouble, The director deserves not to make this garbage anymore because you know how awful it's gonna get, And because the main thing he puts in this TV show is violent content in it, Not even kids want to watch it, Like Joel Schumacher who ruined a great Batman franchise, Greg Baily only makes it looks like a joke for sure, He seriously should have been fired and should have been told not to keep making this horrible stuff, But instead he does not listen and decides to do it anyways to make the audience angry, This show in my case deserves not to be watched in any way possible or even if you attempt to sneak with it and then watch it by yourself, This show does not deserve respect or credit and is really boring to watch, Not only does it get worse from there, But also because of the adult jokes and humor thrown into it, This stuff is purely made for adults and yes don't think that you can take your kids to see this stuff without permission and because bullying is not educational at all, This show does not even deserve to be watched by anyone who is a big fan of it. If you want to see something better then see Peanuts, Or Rudolph-The Red Nosed Reindeer but just please don't see this show, It does not even deserve to be a classic nor does it deserve respect, It should have been taken and then banned so that kids could never watch it at all,
