an opportunity wasted
24 February 2001 | by TopRacer2000See all my reviews

I got into Sam & Max through the videogame by lucasarts which although 8 or 9 years old now is still one of the funniest things i have ever seen. So i was pretty excited to hear a t.v. show was going to be made. After a few episodes though you start to realise that although somewhat interesting this series isn't half as funny as the game or the few sam and max comics ive read. It has it's moments though, although most jokes will produce wry smiles at best rather than the rolling on the floor laughing state that the game frequently put you into. I think the cartoon was heavily censored to prevent sam & max getting too sadistic or p**s-taking in their humour, unfortunately this makes the whole show feel watered-down. Sam & Max would've worked out better as a show aimed towards adults with no censorship then this censored version aimed at kids. Also the voices aren't as good in the cartoon as in the game,sam's is o.k. but Max's is pretty poor in comparison and his voice grates on the ear a lot, overall though there are worse ways to waste a 1/2 hour , the show is ok it just couldve been a lot better,if you want an example of how good it should have been go buy the game.which had lines like.

Sam: (after throwing a bomb he discovered out the window) I hope there was no-one on that bus. Max: No-one we knew at least.

One of the most disappointing aspects of the show is how none of the characters from the game (except obviously Sam & Max) reappear
