The sheer randomness is beyond entertaining!
10 March 2018 | by Animany94See all my reviews

I vaguely remembered watching this as a child and never have I felt so happy to re-watch a TV-series. Back then the humour mostly went over my head, but today it had me laughing hard!

This show is beyond hillarious with tons of fourth wall breaks, literal humour and puns mixing up with the oddest premise and characters ever seen.

It is hard to describe it with all its gold. You are guaranteed entertainment if you do not mind the randomness of its nature. It contains a couple of running gags which are repeated in every episode and can get a little tiring at times, but mostly they find a new way to keep it funny.

Comedic timing is everything in these kinds of TV-shows and what "Sheep in the Big City lacks in timing it makes up for in how self-aware it is of its ridiculous nature. A comedic gem with plenty to laugh at.
