After the disappointment that was Dragonbored, I had my expectations
lowered for the next short in CA's Uncanny valley: Dragged In. However,
not only is this a step up from Dragonbored but it has regained my
excitement for the next few shorts as well.
The plot is a guy is taken by the US government to decode a foreign
alien language in order to see what they want. Despite the fact that
the plot isn't deep or complex and is very silly, it is entertaining
because of how silly it is. Dragonbored suffered from the fact that it
had a predictable plot and wasn't silly or funny enough to make up for
its familiarity. Dragged In doesn't have this problem, as it isn't too
predictable and has a goofy enough tone meaning that most of the jokes
hit bulls-eyes, due to the fact that this is silly enough to allow that
kind of humor.
There isn't much else to discuss with this short, due to how short it
is, but just know that this is a funny, entertaining, well acted short
that has restored my faith in CA's 5th anniversary. Great fun overall.
