A Huge Surprise amongst a lackluster new lineup
6 November 2008 | by Admiral_DongSmoker_IIISee all my reviews

It started with a viral ad campaign, which left me perplexed, yet intrigued. From the previews and ads, it appeared that Cartoon Network's new program "The Secret Saturdays" could be just what they needed. The subject matter of cryptozoology is rarely explored in children's cartoons, which is what intrigued me immediately. The art and animation seemed top-notch, and the voice work seemed at least decent.

Then it aired, and my expectations blown out of the water. While I noticed a few errors in cuts and continuity of the action sequences, there is obviously a lot of effort put into the animation. The voice acting is borderline superb; the characters are voiced expressively, and they just feel real. The humor isn't wasted, and almost all audiences should be able to enjoy the writing. On top of that, unlike many of the programs that are aired on Cartoon Network nowadays, there is definitely a plot; the pilot introduces all of the characters and the story well, without seeming too compressed, if you will.

So far, this new program is on par with the best action/adventure cartoons of the new millennium, and has potential to surpass them all.

9/10; definitely worth watching, but a few glaring animation flaws prevent me from giving it top marks.
