I enjoyed it, it wasn't great per say, but it wasn't awful
18 August 2019 | by locketlove-91986See all my reviews

This was my favorite show as a kid. when I heard about the reboot, I honestly was dreading it. I wasn't one of the people desperately wanting this show to be re booted in the least, I thought it would turn out awful. But it wasn't bad and definitely better than I anticipated. I appreciated the references to older shows and was glad to see all the names from the original cast and crew in the credits, especially Joe Murray. Was a little disappointed they didn't even acknowledge Steven Hilenburg who has since deceased (rip), as a means of respect. I also would've liked to have seen more of the hippo lady, and more time with more of the other characters on the show in general. I think most people watching this are those who actually did watch it on TV when it was on so I think more time on various other characters and quirky references would have been appreciated by most.

I think it would have been a bit better if it were longer by like 10 or 15 minutes. That way you have more time to appease those looking for nostalgia and also more time for the storyline without both of them seeming a bit mismatched and rushed. It also would've made the message being brought across seem less blunt and preachy. I don't disagree with the message in the least but I do see where people who didn't rate this special too highly are coming from. They didn't want a lecture or to be preached to or to have a particular message thrown in their face. They just wanted to have some laughs and remember a show they enjoyed.

I liked how it worked out in a way, kind of like a funhouse mirror to reality. But I think that was always the point of the show to kind of mock the audience, either that or to be so ridiculous they got thrown off the air.

There were parts of this special that really had me laughing and almost forget it was just made within the last couple years, but there were also parts that made it painfully obvious it was made within the last couple of years.

All in all however I enjoyed it. It was true to itself and it did have a new storyline, wish there was more time to spend with the characters and the story however.
