Wasted on kids!
11 April 2016 | by MidgegirlSee all my reviews

I came across Shaun The Sheep by accident, putting it on for the kids after finding it on Amazon Prime. At first it was just on in the background for me, and then bit by bit I found myself watching each episode more and more carefully, guffawing with laughter at humour that went right over the kids' heads. In fact there's so much to see in each 7 minute episode that I'm actually glad they're not longer, since I'd get detail overload and they'd become the thief of time.

I agree with the other crit that said they preferred these to Wallace & Gromit- there's an even greater economy and precision in the story- telling of each little episode to that which you see in the half hour features.

They remind me so much of the Buster Keaton silent comedies as well- pure physical comedy and visual wit. And having no dialogue makes you watch them even closer; take your eye off the screen for even 10 seconds and you miss vital plot development! And the recurring joke that Bitzer the human-like dog reverts to being 100% dog as soon as someone throws a stick for him never fails to make me laugh.

I cannot recommend the series highly enough. Sheer artistry.
