In a word, lazy.
30 November 2011
This show is mediocre at best and downright awful at worst. I'm a Kung Fu Panda movie fan and I don't understand what other people see in it. The writing is bland and tries way too hard to be funny when most of the time it's just painful, and every episode has at least half a dozen major plot holes. The characters' personalities were all right in the first few episodes, but now they're completely off from the characters in the movies, and not in a good way; all the so-called protagonists are complete jerks that no one in their right mind would want to side with. The villains and guest characters are overdone and clichéd, not to mention very badly designed and modeled. The animation is very poor quality; all the backgrounds are monochromatic and hemmed-in, every character in the background is a repeat model (oftentimes, they don't even bother to change the character's clothing color) and the simplified modeling and animation of our main characters is clunky and uninspired. And nothing in the universe of the show is consistent with what was already established in the canon of the movies. Overall, it's clear to me that little to no effort was put into Legends of Awesomeness at all; it was obviously conceived by studio executives looking to make a quick buck and expand the popularity of their franchise between movies. If all you want to see is Po and the Furious Five beating up bad guys, you'll probably like it just fine. But if you wanted to see the elaborate world of the movies recreated and expanded upon, you'll be sadly disappointed by this lazy, lazy show.
