A Delightful Array of Pure Creature Creativity!
26 March 2014 | by CinematicThylacineSee all my reviews

This show so far has been very promising, with a great lineup of contestants that have put out some freaking awesome creature designs! To put this in perspective, the first "costumes"/puppets done in the first episode look almost better then most of the make-ups done during the season finales of FaceOff. As of now I feel confident to say that this might turn out to be an even better show then FaceOff, simply because the creature designs are so much more unique and interesting then those typically shown on FaceOff. The Fire Prawn and Skutterbug deep-sea creatures are perfect examples of the amazing things a skilled artist can do with fabric, tin- foil, foam, and other materials. In an Era of overused CGI and blue- screen effects it's nice to see a show that champions practice creature effects and awesome old-school puppetry. I'm definitely hooked on this show, this is now officially going to be the new highlight of my Tuesdays!
