Ok, so I saw a dragon, and I thought Skylanders Academy could be nifty to watch. Then I realised that only one character was a dragon, and I decided not to watch it.
Come several weeks later, and Eli and I had just finished watching How To Train Your Dragon (Race to the Edge) and needed something new to watch that we wouldn’t get so invested in, Skylanders Academy came up as suggested, so we jumped for it…
By the image, you can see that we didn’t even get through the second episode. The humour was poor (think toilet humour) and the main character utterly unlikeable. It is going for a super hero monster theme, yet fails to deliver. The art doesn’t remind me of anything favourable, and the storyline is just boring and predictable. Maybe there are some life lessons to be learnt here, but I’m pretty sure I missed them for their pure obviousness (like there being a place for planning, and a place for action).
Don’t bother wasting your time on this one. Go past it, and choose something better. We picked All Hail King Julien (another Netflix Original) and weren’t disappointed.
