Savings Never End!, The
As my cat would declare, "Holy moly!"
The sheer chutzpah of the concept was utterly lost.
Initially, I thought this was going to be an infomercial for either the Bat Workout or hiring caped crusaders to do your dirty work.
Nope. (Though a well scripted, and well voiced infomercial could be a howl.)
This was a trainwreck on so many levels. The material poorly chosen, haphazardly edited, with a rambling, pointless voiceover.
Cannot tell you how many times I wanted to fast-forward, or simply stop,
but I could not turn away.
Dreadful, and not in a funny way, either.
Note: Where was the gatekeeper for this Consecution? How did this get included?
Heavy metal opening. No. Poor quality voice over . Nope. “Assification”. No. Batman and Robin? No.

Yikes. I really wanted to like this based on the description. It’s a great idea. But it might have worked a lot better as a 30 or 60 second commercial, rather than a 10 minute infomercial. And I didn’t really care for the narrator voice treatment. At any rate, I’m glad this was on there, because it was a fun attempt at something different, even if it didn’t quite work for me. 3 Frinks out of 10.

…wow, what was that? I mean really…was this supposed to be funny? I think i got like 5 mins in and then just started skipping ahead to see if it got any better…which it did not. Maybe if the voice over was funny this could have worked, but it was not. Even then should not have been longer than a few mins.
(PS those 5 mins felt like hours)
