A goddamn experience.
Planet Sheen is not a good show. The main character is obnoxious, the plots are nonsensical in a bad way, and the show is physically and emotionally draining to watch.
Which is why it may surprise you that Planet Sheen gets my highest recommendations.
You might've heard someone describe something as being like a car crash, where it's terrible, but you can't look away. Planet Sheen isn't like a car crash. It's like a traffic jam where every car is still moving seventy miles an hour. No matter how assaulting it may be to the ears, eyes, and brain, as soon as you hop in, you just gotta see all fifty episodes. (Twenty-six twenty-two minute blocks, most are two segments, aside from the first and last episodes which are both specials.) Everything about this show is so bizarre, but in such a warped way that nothing else could give you the exact same experience. I'm not one of those people who goes "This must've been made on drugs!" when anything shows a slimmer of creativity, but I am legitimately not sure how humans could've made this.
One of my friends suggested it was God trying to communicate with us, and we couldn't understand his message, and I am slightly convinced that may be true.
Planet Sheen does have a few legitimate merits, sure, a couple of characters, particularly the main villains, are at least moderately entertaining, and for the standards of CG, the animation is pretty expressive, if not a smidge too bright. But if you're watching Planet Sheen for Dorkus and Pinter, you're watching it for all the wrong reasons. If you can find the time, I recommend you put on this show, and watch it with a friend, because it is absolutely nuts. If you aren't willing to do the whole show, however, I at least recommend "Torzilla," "ExpreSheenism," "Washing My Sheen," "Banana Quest," and "Gotta Go" for the true experience of it all. If my memory isn't bugged, I think "To Chill a Mocking Blurg" and "Stuck in the Riddle with You" were maybe the only episodes with an actual slimmer of quality, but that's a pretty strong "maybe."
I'd probably give this show a 3/10 on its own standards, but I gotta throw on at least one star for the experience it is. It's bad, yeah, but it's memorably bad.
