Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy

"Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy" review by Suzanne 10/8/15
Airs Saturdays at 9:30/8:30c on Disney XD

I grew up with comics books and watching cartoons. I pretty much stopped doing both regularly in the 70's. Now there are only a few animated series I watch. I tell you this because I'm not your average cartoon watcher. I'm too old and too picky.

I was watching this show because I enjoyed the movie and there are some good cartoons. I couldn't watch very long because it's kind of boring. It tries hard to be funny, but it's not too funny. I think one of the reasons I didn't like it too much is because I really only like animated series if they're really funny (like "Family Guy") or if they have superheroes that I grew up with. If this show starred Superman or Spider-man, I'd probably like it more. I just don't care that much about the characters. I don't have that lifelong vested interest. I liked the movie okay, but it's not my favorite. I thought it was kind of like a Star Wars rip-off, to be honest, until the very end when it got more interesting. I know that's not what most people think, though.

The animation is great, and the actors do a fine job. I just didn't find the story very interesting or funny.  Anyway, if you like animated superheroes, and you're not too picky, you'll probably like this a lot more than I did. I just have way better things to do with my time.
