This is the kind of series that I would like for it to come to an end, but also would like just to get better. The series is boring, annoying and... come on... why teenangers? They act like the classic stereotypes of teenagers. Overall, it is a crap
The episode content in some of the episodes can be entertaining but the "real art" clips are kind of graphic and gross. The show would also be better to me If Milo didn't speak--kind of like the fish in Chicken Little. Another thing is it's not normal at all--but in a bad way. It's also more of a Disney XD type show as it is now. I wish Disney would have made it better in the beginning before taking up a half hour if people's lives with useless noise. Now, I'm not saying Disney channel hasn't had bad shows before...they have. All shows have so many corny lines that it makes me want to drive ice picks into my ears. Nevertheless, this show is a fine example of how the stupidity and immaturity has increased over the years in the younger generations. In my opinion it is just rubbish.
Disney was doing great and then they introduce this new show called "Fish Hooks". This show is not funny at all and lame jokes. Really, you call those things fish? And who would really want to make a show about talking fish? Every episode is just lame. I hope it just ends, I mean seriously I don't think the show is getting much views. I watched this one time when my best friend left the TV on and we decided to watch it, and it was totally lame and we both hated it.
This show i thought in the beginning wouldn't be all that great well i was a total idiot for thinking this. This show is brilliant it is the best thing Disney has released in SO MANY YEARS. The Writing is great they don't rely on one plot the entire show's run like Phineas and Ferb did the characters are very lovable and not ugly and unpresentable the show is not some terrible flash animation no bad voice actors real humor and what's really odd is that DISNEY of all people made this wonderful cartoon. There's no downfall of this show except one thing... Why is it on Disney Channel??? This show should be on Cartoon Network it's like Regular Show which is an absolutely GREAT thing these new cartoons are beginning to act like the shows everybody including me in the 90's grew up with considering this show has many adult innuendos (like Pregnancy, Barmitsfaz, Making fun of Bad Musical artists etc.) i actually give props to the wonderful creator of this show along with the writers and thank you Disney you are finally understanding what the people want. This show is amazing and is very very underrated. Disney keep this show going and make more like this if you do you will be back on your feet at the same roots like in the 90's you proved that with this show and i'm really impressed. I give this show 9.5/10 stars i would have given it 10 if it had the chance to go to Disney Channel but even that i still love this show.
Like the title says, the show's nice, interesting, and decent. Oh, it's also funny at times. Bea can be a lil' full of herself at times. Oscar's the gooball, and Milo's...the ladies man? I also thought about how tonight's episode was. Shelsea (sometimes think about the name) is funny at times. "Gurllllllll".
The show has clever moments and fun parts. But, the plots are weak, the show seems more annoying then it needs to be and the message seems really repetitive from all other Disney Channel Shows. If you want to watch a really good Disney show, I suggest Phineas and Ferb
Very appealing show about 3 teenage fish. (Milo, Oscar, and Bea) Milo is a plump fish who is not very intelligent and always gets himself into tough situations, Bea is your average teenage drama queen, and Oscar is your average nerd who loves video games. Other characters include: Clamantha, Shelsea, Esmargot, Jocktopus, Mr. Baldwin, and many more. The humor is great. The animation combined with picture collages for the outside of the tank is something original that I have not seen in a long time and I like it! I love this show and I have not missed a single episode. I highly recommend this show for little kids and teenagers who just love good old fashioned comedy. My overall grade for this show: 10.0 (A+)
Fish Hooks, a Disney Channel show about three fish that go to highschool, is weak and uninspired.
The main characters are one-dimensional and bland. You have Bea, the 'typical teenage girl,' Oscar the nerdy one of the bunch who has a crush on Bea who, of coarse, has no idea. Last is Milo, voiced by Kyle Massey (who seems to be holding on to whatever he can to stay famous,) is the loud, party boy protagonist. While these characters are by no means awful, you never really feel for them because they're simply cardboard cutouts of previous cartoon characters.
The humour I feel tries way too hard. It's like the writers assume that to be funny, they have to constantly dish out potty humour and make the characters scream 24/7. There isn't much wit to be found, just obnoxious yelling and fart noises. Now, mind you, potty humour and funny screams can be hilarious, but it shouldn't make up all the humour in the show. In Fish Hooks, that's all the humour you get.
The animation is a pretty basic, familiar style, which is by no means a bad thing. It looks as if it's taken a lot of inspiration from 'Spongebob' with the photo collage animals and backgrounds, and it works fine. Nothing really bad about the animation, in fact, it's fairly decent.
Fish Hooks has many flaws and I really don't find it worth watching when it comes on. The plot is the nauseatingly basic 'teens in highschool' premise, but with fish. The characters are a mesh of annoying traits from other characters and the animation, while good, definately can't save this show.
If you have seen The Buzz on Maggie, then you have seen Fish Hooks. The show centers around 3 friends named Milo, Oscar, and Bea. All of them try to endure high school and have normal teenage lives. So this is just another teen show that is animated. Sound boring? Well it gets worse. I found all the characters on this show to be very annoying. Milo is a complete idiot. Oscar freaks out too much. Bea is pretty much the same as Oscar, except worse. Also none of these characters have any personality. Bea is your standard drama queen. Milo is like the class clown. Oscar seems to be like a nerd. The bully is stereotypical as well as the teachers. Nobody has any interesting characteristics. As for the stories, they are boring and unoriginal and some of them are just weird. One story is about Bea being all cautious for picture day, and she thinks her picture is horrible and tries to get rid of it, boring to say the least. Another was when Milo was failing a class, so Oscar and Bea help out by, I am not kidding here, putting his life in danger such as throwing him into a tiger cage. How the heck does that even work at all? It's not just stupid, it's really weird as well. The humor was really the only good thing in this show, and to be fair it did get some laughs out of me so at least it makes the show bearable. The artwork is OK, but uninspired and I don't like the fact that they have to add real photos and have their lips move poorly, I really could have done without that. The animation though is nice and flows smoothly. Perhaps my biggest shock to this show is directed by Maxwell Atoms, who did the awesome Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy and they got C.H. Greenblatt, a writer of the earlier seasons of Spongebob, Grim Adventures, and Chowder, to be on this as well. Now the humor and writing in this show is similar to C.H.'s, but even then that's not enough to save this show. Maxwell, please cancel this show and go do another show similar to Billy and Mandy or just bring that show back. C.H., please find a better show to work on than this you deserve a better show. This show wouldn't have been so bad if it weren't for the fact that it has been done before, like The Buzz on Maggie. I apologize to all you fans who like it, but for me this show does not appeal to me at all. Even though this show can give a couple of laughs, Fish Hooks offers nothing new and is a show that is best left at the bottom of the sea.
I already knew that I wouldn't be feeling this Disney t.v. project as much as I have some, certain others, based on the negative reviews I read on both here and other sites. And from the descriptions and explanations, it didn't seem like one of the shows that would really appeal to me, so I was never in any rush to see it right away. But I decided to search for when it airs on the schedule grid of the cable box and I caught a couple of episodes (2 segments each, bringing them to a total of four segments) over a couple hours ago, just so I can give me review too (had the volume on mute, but the captions were on). I agree that it's one of my least favorites (if not just my least favorite), Disney or otherwise. Walt Disney Television Animation has done some much better series than this and a few others.
One of my beefs with this series is the animation. I mean, most flash animated shows have the reputation of being hated on due to the movements of characters not being as fluid as other forms of animation and that a better place for them to be viewed would be online. The characters in the pet shop who don't live in aquariums or tanks, the cat, the mouse and the snake, I don't think I can even quite consider them to be flash animated. Those three appear to be real-life, cut-out, stop-motion animated and they seem cheaper looking that the aquatic characters, the cat is especially ugly. I miss Disney's own, signature, initial animated style and would like to see a show that has that again (but only if everything else about it hold my attention to get me engaged) and I'm getting fed up with the flash animated shows. Another gripe is the sometimes freaky content. One of the episodes/segments I saw was about the dropsies, and I finally saw the ending of that episode of what a reviewer mentioned on Common Sense Media. When Milo gets put into a tank with the really sick fish and the skin/scales of one sickly fish peels off the face and onto a casserole plate, exposing facial, muscular tissue or matter. I know freaky/disturbing stuff in cartoons is nothing new (Ren & Stimpy, for one), but it's just so left-field for Disney and not what one would expect, having known the studio/company for so long, this program would make it the first in which freaky moments occur. I'm not very big on freaky mess like that, so I haven't seen many shows that involve them in the contents. Also, at the end of the segment in which Oscar becomes a goth fish, and he, Milo and Bea land on the backs of some bunnies, the bunny on which Oscar lands turns around and has an ugly/scary face. Capturing that moment may give some nightmares (which luckily I haven't had, as I already seen a pic of that scene on TV Tropes). The humor, I can't comment on in that area, as I'm still not really much of an expert on that, but as an adult, I'm gradually (or hardly) still getting more of that now.
What else I concur on is that the airwaves are over-saturated with high school-set shows like this one. We got plenty of them and it's been overdone, let something that hasn't been done (or, at least, done in a long while anyway), take over the screens. I want go over what this is about, since others here have already, if y'all who haven't seen any of it would like to know, search for and read their reviews. Not among WDTA's best, sorry. Try again (or better yet harder) Disney (which I doubt they will at this rate). I'm not feeling it at all. Oh, how I yearn for the days of the good/better old Disney Afternoon, Disney's One Saturday Morning and ABC Kids blocks.
This show is not really that bad i guess i kinda liked the first season of it but the second season is way better. my favorite Character is Oscar because he's kind of a spaz which is funny and likes to play video games like me. My favorite episode would have to be the valentines special, ' Send me an angel fish" where Oscar finds his true love which was a really cute episode. So overall this show is great and if you don't like it trust me watch the second season it's so much better so give it a try, who knows..... you just might like it too. :)
This is definitely not one of Disney's better shows. And I have several reasons to support that.
The Animation: The animation is sub-par at best. I thought the characters were supposed to look like fish! But none of them do, save a few characters. Though I do like the use of real pictures in the animation, it is not anything entirely new.
The Characters: Very bland, stereotypical characters with basically no personality are swimming in Freshwater High. Milo is the one who is the thrill-seeking "cool" guy, like that's new. Oscar is the typical nerd and Neat-freak, and his and Milo's relationship is basically a homage to The Odd Couple, which can bring a few laughs. Bea is the one who wants to be an "Actress-Superstar", and is too over dramatic. And there's a bully, a nerd, and other things you always see in a school. Very original.
The Humor/Writing: I This show almost never make me laugh. People call Phineas and Ferb unoriginal? Do they watch this show, or that one? If they DID ACTUALLY WATCH they would realize that fish hooks is all rehashed and lame. What really disappoints me is that the writers came from some great shows! Maxwell Atoms (Billy & Mandy Creator) C.H Greenblatt (Former SpongeBob Writer and Creator of Chowder), Mr. Warburton (Codename Kids Next Door creator), etc. These were great shows, save for Chowder, and I thought that with these people, this show would be better! But it is not.
Overall, of Disney Channel's animated shows, I can safely say my favorite is not Fish Hooks.
Worse than Phineas and Ferb. OK where do i begin. The graphics are TERRIBLE. It's a little discusting, and the jokes aren't that good. The only funny characters are Ms. Lips, Milo, (sometimes) Bea and her friends. OK this show is about 3 fish friends who attend a high school called Freshwater High in a pet store. When I saw the promo for this show. I thought it would stink SO ad, but it was a little better than i thought. This show really isn't that good.
I love this cartoon and it's about time that Disney Channel actually got an enjoyable cartoon to air for not only the kids but for all ages to enjoy. Okay, sure Fish Hooks involves three teenage high school fishes but it's not like "Phineas and Ferb" where it's just a kids and teens cartoon, "Fish Hooks" is actually a kids cartoon, a cartoon for all ages to enjoy and I like this cartoon WAY more than "Phineas and Ferb". I just don't like that they put some gross stuff in "Fish Hooks" but it's a fun cartoon. The adventures of three fishes are delightful and the creators did a good job making this cartoon. I love all three of the fishes, and I think kids will love all of the characters as well because they are all just fun. The animation for "Fish Hooks" is really good and I love the storylines. This is what I would like call a classic, creative, and fun cartoon to watch and it's one of my favorite Disney Channel shows to watch. Overall, this is a perfect cartoon to watch, give it a chance. 10/10
Fish Hooksfollows Milo, Oscar and Bea, three fish friends who attend Freshwater High, a school in their fish tank which is located at a pet store. They have many adventures together and struggle with teen life.
The show features Kyle Massey as Milo, Justin Roiland as Oscar,
and Chelsea Staub as Bea. The show is created by childen's book illustrator Noah Z. Jones and developed for television by Alex Hirsch and Bill Reiss.
This show seems underrated because some people don't like the plot that much. Also, they think that it is a ripoff of SpongeBob. I don't think it is. Both of these shows are taken place in an aquatic settings and they both has fish. My favorite characters are Milo (though sometimes annoying), Oscar, Clamantha, Mr. Baldwin, Jocktopous, and a few others. Most of the episodes have great plot. Only like a couple episodes are bad so far. Overall, Fish Hooks is a great show, but not the best. 8.5/10
It doesn't appeal to me as much as it appeals to others I guess...I don't know why, but it isn't my cup of tea. Honestly, I feel it's lacking in some aspects. I don't really like the voices either, nor the drawings.
But my opinion is my opinion. You can't say that I'm wrong if it asks our opinion of the show. If you don't like my review, So sad, Too Bad. It's exactly what I think. If you're a kid who says my review is harsh, sorry, but face reality. Not everyone will like the same thing as you.
The show revolves around Milo, Bea, and Oscar, 3 fish who have to deal with the most intense moments of their lives... HIGH SCHOOL! DUN DUN DUUUUNNN! But, i digress. Fish Hooks is better and more enjoyable than P&F, and i still like that show. Jocktopus and Clamantha are the Disney TV equivalents to Hades and Professor Ratigan, the funniest Disney characters, since they are comedic relief (in a comedy show :P) and they usually have stupidly funny catchphrases, "Jocktopuuusss!!" for the former, snd "I'm a Clam." for the latter. Overall, if it would get a letter grade, it would be a B++. Good show. Good show.
This show is about 3 fish named Oscar, Milo, and Bea who attend High School together in a Fish Tank at a Pet Shop. While the show has a creative twist to it with the fact that they are living in a Pet Shop, I didn't find this show very entertaining. For starters, the first episode featured a over-used script about boys trying to pretend as Girls at a sleepover party. Let's just say that script is over-used a lot. Moving on, there is another huge problem with the show. The animation sucks. I know Disney is trying to make it look really unique and artistic, but the animation just doesn't appeal to me at all. I'm not going to worry about animation, but I just don't care for it.
Hopefully this show will get better. The first episode/pilot of a show is normally not very good so we'll see where the show goes over the next few months.
When I first heard about this show, I didn't expect much of it. But then I had to consider "Phineas and Ferb". The show about stepbrothers who creating amazing things had gone further than I ever figured it would. I decided to watch "Fish Hooks" just to see what it was like, whether it was a giant success or an epic fail.
It was an epic fail.
First of all, the plot makes absolutely no sense. Fish going to high school? Whose idea was this?! Second of all, the characters are not only unbelievably simple, but basically reproductions of previous Disney characters (i.e. the drama queen, the nerd, the slobby kid).
Not only that, but the actual drawings and backgrounds are simply unattractive, at least in my opinion. They've mixed animation with somewhat realistic pictures. While this may be a stylistic choice, the way they have blended it makes me wince when I watch the show.
On top of that, it's just not funny. It doesn't even make sense. For example, in one episode, Oscar states, "Hamsters creep me out...their bathroom is everywhere!" Aren't fishs' bathroom everywhere? Or maybe that's why it's supposed to be funny. I don't know. I don't get it.
The plots tend to be not only absurd, but they teach no life lesson. For example, when Milo needed to study, Bea and Oscar put his life in danger. In real life, if a kid jumps into a tiger cage, he's going to get eaten, not educated! I guess you could say there's supposed to be a message about how some students learn differently from others, but, seriously, who's going to pick that up (besides me, obviously)?
And, like I said, the plots are absurd. While Phineas and Ferb can take their plots to the limits, Fish Hooks can't. It's not funny, and there's not an ounce of believability in it.
To sum it up, the show has poor animation, lame punch lines, stagnant characters, and...*Sigh* in other words, we're in for another SpongeBob.
I sort of stopped paying attention to disney channel after they canceled "Teacher's Pet" and reruns of "House of Mouse" and a lot of good Disney cartoons. Many years later I saw the "Fish Hooks" promo and I waited to see it after I found out that Maxwell Atoms (the creator of Billy and Mandy on cartoon network) was part of the crew behind the show. So after all that disney XD nonsense and the much overrated "Phineas and Ferb" I thought this show might be interesting.
What it's about:
This is probably the third underwater themed animated series made after "The Snorks" and a certain Nickelodeon show that will never go to retirement. I might have missed a show or two though. There are three main characters. Milo the weird but mostly crazy one, Oscar the jittery and nerdy one, and Bea the superstar wannabee. are three fish going through misadventures in a multiple sea creature tank world in a pet shop. It's also focused on the three of them going through the average life of being in high school, but it's underwater.
I personally like the character design for most of the characters.
The show's animation is Flash witch is used in a lot of cartoons now. I think it's alright but could be a hit and miss for some people.
I also like the voice actors they gave the main characters. The voice for Milo didn't appeal to me at first but now I think it's okay since it's not always irritating.
The humor in "Fish Hooks" is decent. If you remember "Billy and Mandy" you'll notice some similarities but just a little. They are hard to find though but I did notice some sound effects.
There is this one thing I don't like that "Fish Hooks" would have been better without. It's those realistic pictures that mix with the show's art. Most of it is cool but there are others that are a bit graphic. For example there's an episode where Milo and the others are being chased by a realistic looking cat that seemed to look more like a mutant alien from an old sci-fi movie to me. I'm not saying it's supposed to look cute, I just think those scenes are oddly detailed and cheaply animated coming from Disney's latest kids cartoon. This next thing doesn't bother me but I did noticed since this is from the modern Disney channel. This seems to be yet another teen sitcom but this one I can actually enjoy, maybe it's because it's animated. It's not a big problem I just can't get over that it's Disney channel's big thing nowadays. I really hope it doesn't go deeper in teen drama. Please Disney Channel I'm begging you.
Should you watch it:
Yes. I think "Fish Hooks" is a surprisingly cool show I'm sure many kids will enjoy. My most favorite character is Oscar cause of how he loves playing video games but this show has many lovable characters. It probably would have been better if the show was created back when the channel wasn't hooked on teen drama, then it might have been something more. A lot of Disney's signature cartoons have been practically disintegrated so this show has to be my only attraction yet along with Mickey Mouse, the ORIGINAL mickey mouse that is.
Why do people hate this and Like Regular Show?This show is better than that show.It's basically about three little fishes surviving High School.Finally,A Disney show that doesn't suck.It kind of reminds me of My Gym Partner's a Monkey,except that there is no one in this show that has a naked butt.And something I'm glad of.Dana Snyder who plays Shake on Aqua Teen and Kyle Massey from That's So Raven are in this show,which is great.I give this an A+.Score:
Animation:Colorful,but Inside the store,it looks like they just cut stuff out of magazines.
Humor:Of course.More Humor than Hannah Montana
I love this show.It's better than Hannah Montan,Jonas and The Suite Life on Deck
Fish going to high school-good idea on paper, trust me, it is, but how good is it in execution? The voices sound like kids banging on trashcans sometimes, the flash animation mostly bleeds my eyes, and Clamantha's voice sounds like she's dying. Bea's wonderfully flash animated, though, but with Oscar and Milo (Kyle Massey? Why'd they get him? Couldn't they have picked someone else?) the flash burns my retinas. The setting seems--contrived, like they couldn't come up with anything else other than a fishtank...in live action. If it were an animated pet shop fishtank, that would be nice...but it is a clashing live action fishtank with fake props. The backgrounds are poorly animated in the tank, and the name of the highschool ought to be Freshtank High, considering how terribly uncreative the name of the high school is.
...all in all, watch it for Bea alone, or, because it's the only cartoon left on Disney Channel next to Phineas and Ferb.
So we are introduced to Bud's Pet Store, the fish section, where Milo, Ba & Oscar live. Milo is the creative lovable moron of the group, often coming up with outlkandish ideas that get them in trouble or near death situations. Bea is a wanabe actress, ad tries to be mre independant but her parents like, don't let her and finally we have Oscar, the lovable videogame addict who has a crush on Bea. What I like about this show, is that it's not your typical nerd trying to be popular show. They do have friends and go on dates (sans Oscar). Friends include Shellsea, Ablert Glass, Jumbo Shrimp, Esmargot, Finberley & Koi. Yea, they like fish puns. We also have JOkctopus.
Overall: It's a good show. It's better when it goes to outlandish weird scenearios rather than cliche plots. 9/10.
Who knew this years TV generation would get such cartoons like this. I thought this would be another Terrible just absolute waste Disney show but apparently i was wrong. This is what Disney is all about this is Disney not Hannah Montana not Phineas and Ferb and definietly not Sonny with a Chance. This is a good "hand drawn" cartoon with no dried out humor no stupid live action sitcommy stuff no new age washed out animation no nothing of the sort. I wonder how such a good thing like this was allowed for New age Disney. Could Disney be getting... dare i say... BETTER? I dont know but this is surely proving it. I've watched all of current Season 1 which is now about to end to go to it's second season and it's actually really funny. I think of good old season 1 2 and 3 SpongeBob or something like Ren & Stimpy when watching this show. It has good writers especially CH Greenblatt one of the best writers i have ever seen for any TV Show along with Maxwell Atoms who is a Cartoon Network legend and it has some nice characters that are not un appealing to the eye or with humor. My favorites are Bea and Oscar i think they gave them really good character development and hey there funny and not un appealing to the eye like some that Disney has or is releasing. and has nice scenery and great animation along with good jokes that dont run themselves into the ground like all of other Disney stuff today. I think this show could become a huge hit. But really i think it already is. I give this show a ten out of ten absolutely BRILLIANT!!!
