Additionally, the show had a Flying Rhino Junior High meets Histeria type of animation style to it. To put it bluntly, the animation was a bit different. But, it was that bad kind of different. Look at the opening I posted above to see what I mean. Every character looks like they belong in a different series entirely.
I wasn’t the only one who thought that Detention wasn’t all that great, though. The show only lasted thirteen episodes before it was cancelled. It ended up going more quietly than it came, as the show got the Girlfriends treatment (except here, it may’ve been warranted; Girlfriends deserved so much better). It didn’t even get a final episode, just one that seemed like it was a random episode. Then again, most cartoons of this era didn’t get definitive finales, so it was kind of par for the course.
Now, don’t get me wrong: this post wasn’t meant to “hate” on you if you liked this series or did DeviantArt of the characters or what have you. You have your tastes, and I have mine. However, I just think that the show was not only mostly trash, but it was the worst kind of trash. It was the type of trash you, for most of your life, you forget about and only remember if you search the deepest, darkest crevices of your mind next to the dankest of memes.
Until next time, this is your purveyor of the new and the nostalgic who critiques it from a POC POV, SOTB, saying “stay nerdy, my friends.”
