No, before you ask, I have no thoughts on the game yet since I haven't played it. It's low on my priority list, behind ORAS and Smash 4 and possibly other things.
Anyways, this show is exactly what I was worried it would be but figured it would be. A comedy without much plot or continuity.
Now let me explain myself. That's not necessarily a bad thing. Heck, from what I've seen of it there are worse comedy only shows out there (a certain chibi reboot of a DC show comes to mind). It's not really that bad, though I will admit the fact that it's one of those two 15 minute episode types of shows doesn't do wonders for the pacing. There are some jokes I did laugh at though. But anyways...I'm not particularly a fan of that style of TV show now a days.
Basically the TV shows I like have a few things. 1. They have characters I like, and am interested in seeing their conflicts play out. 2. Have to have a comedic side but not be afraid to be serious as well. A perfect blend of comedy and serious story telling really goes a long way for me, and it's one of the reasons why Avatar the Last Airbender is my favorite show. 3. Have to have at least some continuity. I like it when a show references previous episodes. I like it when characters grow and develop from those episodes. That's why I do my fanfics the way I do them. It makes me more invested in what's happening in each episode since what's happening actually matters.
But there has only been a couple of episodes, so my opinion might change eventually if future episodes impress me. But for now...it doesn't really capture my interests. I'd rather watch a new episode of the Pokemon Anime than Sonic Boom (of course, Legend of Korra outshines them both but that's beside the point). I can't say it's bad but it doesn't interest me.
Now, for those of you about to type "It's a kids show, so what did you expect" in the comments, you can stop now.
I understand that the target demographic is kids much younger than me. And to be honest, I really don't care. I don't use "It's a kids show" as an excuse for a show. I just mentioned above that Avatar the Last Airbender is one of my favorite shows. It's a kids show but it still has it's serious moments. Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Explorers of the Sky (and the PMD series in general) is a kids game and boy did they manage to put some serious moments in that game. I don't think kids shows need to be pure comedic shows. I think you can get some action, development, and some actual heart pounding moments in those shows and still consider them kids shows. Heck, it's by doing that you get a wider audience of not just kids.
But again, from what I've seen of it, it's not that bad. Just not in my tastes. And that might change in the future. I don't know anything for sure yet. So who knows, it might actually impress me. Until then, if you wanted me to place it in terms of Sonic shows I'd probably put it behind SatAM and Sonic X. Maybe also Sonic Underground but I haven't really watched that so...
