So with Firebal’s second season coming up in the Spring Season, I got curious about the first season, so I checked it out. The first season too is entirely done in CG, its episodes are also just two minutes long and it’s also a comedy. What kind of comedy? One with deapan humour. Lots and lots of deadpan humour.
This show is basically two expressionless robots talking to each other while making strange poses. The dialogue itself is really silly, but the voice actors deliver them like they were intended to be serious, and do so quite well without much overacting. And at the same time it’s not like the dialogue is completely stupid either: it’s creative and makes a ton of references to just about anything. Every episode feels different and I can see more than enough inspiration for a second season.
Overall this is a pretty good recommendation for those looking for a quick laugh. You really breeze through these episodes and especially the punchlines of each episode are quite funny and well delivered. The worst part of this show probably is the monkey that pops up in the llater episodes. The creators didn’t seem to really know what they wanted to do with him.
|Storytelling:||8/10 – Good comedic timing, very consistently funny dialogue.|
|Characters:||8/10 – Good dialogue and excellent voice actors for such a short comedy.|
|Production-Values:||8/10 – Entirely in CG, but the character poses make up for it.|
|Setting:||8/10 – References everything from dolphins to jetpacks.|
