Pac-man and the Ghostly Adventures Episode 7 Produced by 41 Entertainment, Arad Productions Inc. and Bandai Namco Games, Directed by Moto Sakakibara Review
Between saving the world and going to school Pac-man’s life is rather busy. One the day the worst tragedy to ever befall humankind strikes: Pac-man has a zit and picture day’s tomorrow! How will Pac-man ever survive this crisis!?
If this episode is representative of the show as a whole then god help us all. It’s bad enough that they took an iconic character and gave him one of the most generic shows to come out of the woodworks in years. The jokes fall flat 9 out of 10 times and the “villains” are so non-threatening they don’t even deserve the name (their big plot is to make Pac-man feel bad… how this benefits them in any way alludes me).
The show is devoid of any tension it’s trying so hard to be inoffensive. If I could say one positive the CG looks halfway decent at least. That being said content wise nothing sets it apart from any other kids’ show. In conclusion this episode of Pac-man and the Ghostly Adventures was just painful to watch, it certainly isn’t the worst thing I’ve ever seen but goshdarnit if it doesn’t come close.
