I love the Critters films. Fun, cheesey, scifi film at their finest...with the exception of Critters 4 which I hated. I felt the Critters deserved a better final installment and I had hoped this would be it. Unfortunatly......
Critters: A New Binge suffers from the same problems as Critters 4. With even the lead charecters being extreamly unlikable and everyone else being very annoying. As well as a "twist" that can be predicted after 3 of the 8 ten minute episodes. The writing was incredibly flat and uneventful except for the last 3 episodes. Which still felt under developed due to the 10 minute episode runtime.
And while the critters themselves are still as lovably silly and evil as ever and Im glad they stayed with puppets and practical effects for the critters the digital elements elsewhere look awful in comparison. I know that was likley a matter of the show's low budget. But even so.
Overall. If the show had better writing behind it and not bet its success souly on the critters name. If they had been able to produce full 20-30 minute episodes to let story elements develop properly. This could have been a great installment in the franchise. And a far better finale then the terrible Critters 4. But as it stands. Its just as bad. If not worse.
I prey that the Critters get a proper revival someday. But this isnt it.
