uploaded a Finisher Video regarding the final season of his TPI Series: Andy X Challenge. Since I initially watched this show from the beginning, I wanted to rank all 5 seasons from the worst to best and give my opinions on each of them.Note: When it comes to Season 5, I will be referring to the Finisher and not the actual Season, so if there's supposed to be more of an explanation that didn't get into the Finisher, then I apologize.
Now with all that said, let's begin.Ranking System: F,D,C,B,A
F: AXC Season 5: Heroes vs Villains
How fitting is it that the entry that starts this whole thing off is the season that didn't even finish?
But as tempting as it is that I could bring up that fact and call it a day, Season 5 has a fuck-ton more problems with it based on the Finisher that was provided.
While I do applaud the man for doing something more unique with the season by not having him copy the style of Total Drama and trying to make it more original, this ultimately results in the challenges feeling more unoriginal and rehashed when compared to the seasons before it.IE:
Episode 1's challenge being a copy of a challenge in Season 3, the swimsuit challenge feels too similar to the Friends with Benefit challenge from PLHH,etc.
But the problem with this show being unfinished is that the only details we have for this show is the Wiki or the Finisher Video. As such, there's no further details on what would've happened in between certain events and it makes it difficult to judge properly.
The only reason I am talking about it here is because it technically counts as the final season of the show and as such, I have to count it as a season.D: AXC: Season 3: USA
If I could compare the 3rd Season of AXC to a film, that film would be Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines.
While this season does have a lot of the old stuff that made the first two seasons good, the new stuff is so bad it makes the show flop faster than a Magikarp using Splash.For example:
While characters like Espeon and Magneton, and to a lesser extent Rapidash, have unique character traits never seen before in a TPI, their execution is either really poor(Jenna) or makes these traits feel incredibly worthless to have(see Espeon's other traits as well as Magneton)
But even ignoring stuff like character traits, a lot of the characters in this season feel either incredibly pointless or just overall bland. IE:
Pancham, Volcarona, Flareon, Tropius, Snorlax, Arcanine, Drifblim, and even Electivire to an extent.
Sure character bits like Manectric's confessing his sexuality and Noivern's backstory were good, but those positives don't make up for a lot of stuff I didn't like about the season overall.
Another issue I have is an issue I have with a lot of Telly's shows, his gameplay elements. Ignoring the gaps in logic at several points in the series, this season also contains a lot of stupid elements like the blackmail that ultimately didn't add up to much by the time that plot-point ended, as well as Magneton trying to be a threatening villain.
Overall, much like Terminator 3, I feel that this sequel should've stayed in that vat of metal.
C: AXC Season 4: Revenge of Stick Figure Island
In the interest of fairness, this season was very close to being ranked a B. And by close, I mean Patrick Ivuti and Jaouad Gharib Chicago Marathon levels of close.
Season 4 has a much better cast when compared to the previous season, better challenges, better romance elements and to an extent, better character moments and gameplay elements.Favorite Characters:
Chandell, Drapion, Chandy(to an extent), Vibrava.
In fact the only characters I really hated were either Yanma, or the villains of this season, so that's an accomplishment right there
Overall, good season but not good enough to be any higher.B: AXC Season 1
The one that started it all, the very first Season of AndyXChallenge had a great cast of characters, good challenges, decent villains, and even decent gameplay elements.
I also liked a lot of the challenges in this season and I thought a lot of them were unique when compared to other TPI's that I was watching at the time.
Plus, as I said above, I also liked a lot of the characters in this one. Some of my favorites include Nidoking, Delcatty(before she got Sakura'd), Camerupt, and Absol.
I also felt a lot of the character traits were more unique than previous seasons. Such as the Comic Geek who's more than a geek, the adrenaline junkie with a big heart, etc.
Overall, great season.A: AXC Season 2: Anime Insanity
My favorite season of the AXC series is the 2nd season.
As a sequel should do, this season develops a lot of the characters from the first season and they become more interesting as a result. Examples include:
Tropius, Nidoking, Electivire, and Absol. I didn't even like Tropius that much in the first season, so seeing her develop into a more interesting character makes me appreciate this season even more.
I was also entertained by the interesting challenges this show had that were based off of Anime. On top of that, this season also had a lot of good comedic bits sprinkled throughout, such as the Team Four Star challenge, the Nidoking Dream Scene, etc.
And while I do have some issues with the Gameplay of this season, including gaps in logic, it wasn't bad enough to make me this show overall.
So to close this out, if Season 3 was Terminator 3, then Season 2 would be Terminator 2 :3
This concludes my little ranking journal, what was your rankings of all 5 seasons of AXC? Let me know
