It's hard to follow up a season as funny as Total Drama Island. The romance, the challenges, the twists, the turns, and more importantly THE DRAMA. The show was watchable because of its truths. It took all of the annoying stereotype teens we all hate and actually made them likable. The idea for an animated reality show was genius. And when I heard about TDA, I jumped for joy. I couldn't wait for the next season.
When I finally saw it, well...................lets just say my expectations were a little to high.
What went wrong? Really? It went so well the first time. But when I saw the first few episodes, I just wasn't feeling it anymore. It had all the characters, challenges, and Drama we love, but it was never the same after that. I actually couldn't wait for the season to be over and for them to crown a winner and get it over with.
So what went wrong you ask? Let me count the ways.
The season itself felt rushed through. It felt like the writers ran out of ideas and just decided to get it over with so they can make season 3. The challenges were pretty disappointing as well. Most of them didn't make sense, felt to easy, went to fast, or just didn't have the same 'wow' factor the season 1 challenges did. The suspenseful elimination ceremony went out the window. The characters became more unlikable as the story went on (with a few exceptions). Basically, it just wasn't good enough. Although, some episodes, specifically the reunion special, were ok
Luckily, season 3 saved my hopes for a better season.
What do you think? Am I wrong? Or am I right?
