So Eddsworld released a brand new short and it sure was something.
Hello and welcome everyone to another Eddsworld episode review. I'm Lbat1901 and I will be you host. So, let's get into it.
I'll be honest here, I was debating if I should make a review on this or not, but in the end, I decided to go for it.
This may be a bit shorter than my The Birds And The Bees review since well, this new short doesn't really have anything for me to comment on.
Anyway, what is RANDUMB all about exactly? Well, it's a series of short animated segments that make up the duration of roughly four minutes of video time.
Basically, the EW crew got together one day and started throwing ideas at a whiteboard. They were basically all like: "Hey, what if we created animated segments just like ASDFmovie but make it Eddsworld?"
And that's how we got RANDUMB. They took both ASDFmovie and Eddsworld, placed them into a blender and mixed them together along with sprinkling a hint of Tord's Adventure, Tom's Tales Of Awesome, Edd's Tales Of Boredom, and pretty much every short that was released before Beyond and Legacy.
Despite having some strong positives on what it's origins are, the short was.... ehhhh....not very good. The animation was solid and the parts that I liked were the Matt making toast but get middle fingered at, Tom dancing, and the turnip overlord. Oh and uh, long hair Mark was a surprise, but anything else felt rather dull and boring.
The humor wasn't there at all. It felt like it was trying way too hard to be funny and did RANDUMB really had to be a ripoff to ASDFmovie? Did it had to do what ASDFmovie has already accomplished years before RANDUMB took center stage? What's worse is that, I didn't even laugh once while watching this short and that's not a good thing.
I'm not trying to be harsh on this short since I heard that the EW crew's schedule is a little tight and to be fair here, everyone doesn't have the time to do something. But in all seriousness, they could've done something even better than this.
Alright, that's pretty much all I got for this. My final rating to RANDUMB is a turnip and toast out of 10 or in this case a 4 out of 10. Before you ask, yes, I have a special criteria on how I rank Eddsworld episodes and I plan on making a tier list. RANDUMB is probably go with The Birds And The Bees in the D tier.
Oh and uh, we also get the return of Detective Edward Gold and Sheriff Thompson, but they're aren't in Saloonatics artsyle and they were brought back at what cost? Oh, for an ad for NordVPN. .....How lovely...
Okay, that's enough from me. See ya in the next review. Bye!
