I didn't think today's episode was too awful bad... I think "Adventures in Budylon" at least makes an attempt to encourage children to use their imagination, which is something a lot of kids seem to lack these days since they're getting hooked on video games and cellphones and the internet at such early ages. One thing I did notice, however, was that D.W. sounds like she was losing her voice the whole time, does she have another voice actor?
"Ladonna Compson: Party Animal" seemed to scream, "SCRAPPY!!!" at first, but it was kind of interesting... some observations I made were
1. Gee whiz, Ladonna's bedroom is HUGE... is her family rich or something? And why does she have two beds in her bedroom? I thought she might share her room with Bud, but apparently he has his own room.
2. Uh, people from the south don't pronounce "either" as "eye-ther", we say, "ee-ther".
3. Is it just me, or did Binky's voice sound a little deeper than usual? I don't quite mean like it did in the first season, but rather like perhaps Bruce Dinsmore probably go quite that high anymore.
This whole new, "Which Arthur character are you?" segment at the end... uh... if it were a little more interactive, it could probably work, otherwise, did nothing for me.
One more thing I do have to bring up... maybe it's just me, but I kept getting a shiptease vibe between Arthur and Ladonna throughout the whole show... anyone else?
