Don't expect too much from this show
13 October 2018 | by FairlyAnonymousSee all my reviews

Big Hero 6 was originally going to be a movie about Hiro and his friends taking on crime syndicates and hunting down criminals who were also prodigies in their own ways (a lot of this can be seen in Art of Big Hero 6). They changed the movie's plot to be much more linear and focused, as having to introduce our protagonist as well as multiple villains wouldn't work within a 90 minute run time. So upon hearing that there would be a series, I was curious if they would go back to their original idea: Big Hero 6 vs other robot criminals, stopping crime, doing detective work, and other fun stuff like that, as well as hopefully fleshing out the B-list characters who weren't really relevant to the movie's story.

Unfortunately, this show does not do this and it never really utilizes what it has. Big Hero 6 ended with them being crime fighters, but this show makes it seem like crime fighting is more of a chore than an actual thing they do. What makes this even more frustrating is that they don't really fight any criminals who have separate agendas. Everyone they fight seems to more or less tied to the same person instead of there being multiple rivals or issues going on.

In terms of plot, there is an overarching story of sorts, but it seems to be taking a lot of storybeats from Teen Titans (2004). The main villain is quite literally Slade and Brother Blood combined into one character (though maybe this changes later on as I have only seen the first released chunk of the series).

The show also suffers from some pretty obnoxious dialogue. For some reason or another, Fred has a very large amount of screen-time and dialogue when compared to the other characters and most of what he says just "nerdy jokes". How he is handled in this show will only make you dislike the character to a higher degree.

To be fair, this show is obviously aimed towards younger audiences and isn't trying to be super sophisticated, complex, or original, but it just lacks any real reason to watch other than for seeing the characters from the movie do stuff... and not very interesting stuff at that.
