Alright, it looks like I won’t get all the current reviews planned for today out. I’m leaving for the midnight showing of Transformers with a friend soon, so I don’t have the most amount of time. So here’s the plan: I’m gonna type these up as quickly as possible and get them out without slideshows. Tomorrow, I’ll add the slideshows in (hopefully before my first training session for work, but no promises).
Oh, and this is the part where I’d say, “This review will be a shorter one,” but the last two times I said that they were normal length. So I’m not gonna jinx it. …Or maybe I just did.
Throughout watching [C], I learned quite a few things about it. Mainly about all of the economic references and messages that it had. Now that it’s over, there’s one thing I can definitely say about it.
I have no idea what it was talking about.
This is most likely due to the fact that I’m an idiot, but it also seems like the only people who can get any real messages out of [C] are economics majors/teachers. I’m actually still friends with my high school economics teacher, so maybe I’ll show him [C] at some point and ask what the hell it’s trying to say.
Regardless of this, it doesn’t change the fact that [C] was a pretty awesome ride. I remember watching the ending scene for the 10th episode for the first time. I was nearly shaking with excitement.
…Wow, I really don’t have much to say for [C]. Uhm… well I guess I could say that even though I didn’t get the overall message(s) for the show, I still understood some of the minor ones, such as the whole “offering up your future as collateral” deal.
I guess to sum it up, [C] was just fun to watch. I don’t doubt it has depth, but it’s too deep for me to reach it. It’s not really a “so bad it’s good,” though, it’s just plain entertaining. I mean, urgh, how do I say this? I don’t know, just watch the first one or two episodes of the show, and you’ll know if you want to watch the rest or not.
RATING: 9 out of 10.
