from the internets: URBMN reviews Teletoon Pilots

Our old pal Cameron Archer has been keeping up with the recent airings of the Teletoon Detour pilots commissioned a few years back.  This past Sunday was Ninjamaica’s debut.  Cameron watched it, and didn’t hate it.  Here’s a bit of what he had to say:

Ninjamaica has, taken at face value, a stupid premise.

He’s an amnesiac ninja from Jamaica, and sings for a reggae band.


Ninjamaica embraces its own ludicrousness.

Ninjamaica is a nice surprise for me.  It doesn’t take itself seriously, and its negatives can be fixed over time.

If nothing else, Ninjamaica has one hell of a theme song.  That alone makes it better than The Dating Guy.

His full review is here.

I didn’t like Ninjamaica.  It was certainly at the top end of the mediocrity scale, but I wouldn’t go beyond that.

The tow best shows have already aired, Angora Napkin and Duncebucket, so I don’t know if I’ll be tuning in for any more.

Also, has anyone else noticed that the travesty that was Wireless Family doesn’t seem to be on the schedule?

    What? no Wireless Family? So sad. To know what is good in a film, one must also know what is bad. I would consider that show to be the base to be able to judge all other shows by. At least with what is wrong with it.
    Kind of like Plan 9 from Outer-space although I don’t want to put these two in the same category. Plan 9 is WAY better.
