Storyline

When the planet Zenn-La is threatened by the cosmic giant Galactus, a being that must drain whole planets of their lifeforce for sustenance, Norrin Radd must act. He makes a bargain to be the scout for the being, to search for uninhabited planets, in return for for Zenn-La's survival. Galactus agrees to this and changes the man into the powerful Silver Surfer, but he also submerges his humanity to remove his qualms about selecting populated planets for consumption. That suppression is only broken by an attack by the insane space villain, Thanos. With the knowledge of Galactus' treachery, he moves to stop the being just as he was going to consume Earth. With difficulty, the Surfer manages to stop him and breaks all ties to Galactus. In retaliation, Galactus whisks Zenn-La to an unknown location and now the former Herald must search for his lost home. However, there are few clues and while he still has all his might of the Power Cosmic, there are many races who want their revenge for ... Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

It was hilarious, but not in the way they intended.
29 November 2016 | by cedrik-21295See all my reviews

Why do people see this show as a masterpiece? I can't see it. Everything is a mess, the 3-d animation looks terrible, the stories don't make any sense, the constant inner monologues are just annoying and I am not even going to comment on the ending (actually I am, it was probably directed by a seven year old Michael Bay).

The writers must think kids are morons, just listen to their horrendous techno-babble. Once they said that the only way to 'not be "sucked" into a black hole was through a "plasma-jump".' What? First of all black holes don't suck, second of all a "plasma-jump". What? A time-jump moves you through time, and a space-jump moves you through space. What in space does a plasma-jump do? Does it move you through plasma or what? Also how would that help?

And the colors of space are just tacky, what did Jack Kirby think when he made those comics?

I know that their animation was limited by budget and stuff, but did they have to give everybody those ridiculous poses? And the 3-d animation is totally out of place, Galactus' chin goes into his helmet, the tentacle arms looks weird, all his weird button-pressing and lever-pulling, and he looks like he has swallowed a light-bulb. It would have been OK if they used it sometimes, for like spaceships, but they constantly use it.

The dia/monologues has some weird use of odd grammar. I know that some sci-fi books have fancy grammar (like Frank Herbert and Isaac Asimov), but this show is just silly with it. And everybody talks constantly, with themselves or with others.

The show however is still enjoyable (not always in the ways intended), and I recommend to watch it with a couple of friends. It will give you a good laugh.
