Thread: Carmen Sandiego Netflix Series

  1. #1

    Default Carmen Sandiego Netflix Series

    Visit here if you were looking for the MOVIE (coming out this year too?!) instead: http://apforums.net/showthread.php?t=49019

    So the trailer came out and, uh:




    ...not quite sure how I feel about them pretty much just overturning the lore and making her a straight up rogue hero as opposed.to the Magnificent Bastard she usually was, but hey I liked the other animated reboot* Netflix put out recently well enough so I'll keep my optimism, albeit a bit cautious. Bonus points if it somehow attains similar levels of gayness lol.

    I heard about this, but I didn't know there was a live-action movie in the works, too.

    I'm actually interest with this new series. I like they are going with Carmen being like Lupin the 3rd in a way.

    Wasn't impressed, unfortunately. Other than the player concept (I hope he's more than just some hacker), it feels generic. If they can give her interesting antagonists to bounce off it could work, but VILE's looking pretty basic too.

    I get their desire to go in a different direction than the original but it lost all the charm of it, and the effective way they presented the information to viewers as well. I'm very nostalgic about cartoons from my heyday but I'm always open to new interpretations. The idea of seeing things more from Carmen's perspective was intriguing but I don't think they did it well. Somehow starting out as a detective and turning to the dark side is more intriguing than being a thief and turning into something of a quasi Robin Hood. Also I didn't like the supporting cast much compared to the original.

    The art style is cool but the actual execution... not so much.

    If it was a new property and not Carmen Sandiego specifically maybe it'd be a little better?

    But no, not holding a candle to the older stuff. And its the first show to have a lame theme song

    Carmen was always a balance in Edutainment and this one didn't really capture it (needs a bit more cheese and silliness). A lot about it feels good on paper, but execution needed to be better. For example, I like the idea of a Zenigata like character, but he was dumber than Pops was and I kept questioning why anyone would hire him in the first place. Overall, it was just mediocre and there are better Kid's shows on Netflix.

    It did make me laugh at a few parts.
