jim henson shop challenge PT.3 (5&6)

what's up my faithful readers i'm here to do the review for my 2nd favorite SYFY show and to allow you to know what i'm thinking during the show, so without further ado it's time for the semi-live blogcast.

So this week (ep.5) they have to do a large scale creature that are seen via UV paint. they have a fully black rehearsal stage.

hmmmmm............ interesting so this challenge is going to be based mostly on how they move. so this will be amusing.

so they work in pairs this week:

Robert and Russ.

Lex and Jake.

Melissa and Ben.

so there will be 2 bird characters one done by melissa and ben and the other by robert and russ.

Lex and Jake shall be taking the road least traveled and make a baby lizard.
Melissa's complainig about Ben being the Man in the relationship. lol

how many hours a day do they work?
i mean seriously by the time they leave it's night so its obvious that they work for at least 12 hrs.

everone's trying to stay in their comfort zones, they need to be a bit more courageous in their designs.

Uhhhh... alright Ben was kind of a douche, he changed part of the design at the last second. He could've at least Warned Melissa.

they still have to paint these creatures with the UV paint.
and jake/lex, ben/melissa haven't even finished them, ooo boy.....

that lizrd thing is fuckin' huge! how the hell is that gonna move!?

well everyone is finished now all that's left is the screen tests:
*(i just realized Brian Henson looks like Robert England)

  Robert and Russ: i love the way that red sets it off, the leg movement was a bit iffy though.

  Ben and Melissa: it's such a pretty soft blue, the foot movement was very smooth and graceful. (melissa needs to cut down on the bragging)

Jake and Lex: it's beautiful as long as you don't look at those legs.

wow that's cool : big bird, the beloved sesame street character, has all the feathers individually made, so when they have to ship it across the airlines, it actually has to have a first class seat on the planes.
                                                               ~my useless fact to you

 yeah even in the light it hurts to look at the lizard.
ben and melissa's bird is probably going to win this time.

all right wining team is:  Ben and Melissa.
               the single winner is: Melissa.
the losing team: Lex and Jake
               the losing person: Lex.

so now it's time for EPISODE SIX!!!!!!!!!!!

this time they're making a creature that lives in a swamp and blends in with the enviornment. the catch is that at one point the creature is supposed to reveal itself and attack a smaller creature, then return to it's hiding place.

let the fun begin.

they also have to chose what their creature will be disguised as:




russ- weeping willow plants

jake- sticks

three days to finish their creatures let the game begin!

the concepts are really interesting, this surely will show which ones will be appearing as our finalists.        
i like the lilypad monster so far, the eye flower part.
russ is going traditional hand puppet mechs hopping to tug at Mr. Henson'sheartstrings that ain't going to work. that just so happens to be a cheap tactic.
i love the colors their using. i have the wierdest feeling that russ is going to lose this time.

their all on the set at the same time cul!

hoooooooooooo fuck russ broke it's freakin' arm! the hell dude! that's basically saying your a goner!
time for the Screentest: (this isn't gonna go well)

*oooooo neville page is a guest judge this week!

  Russ-wow he fixed his creature it's so funny!

 Robert-o wow that was interesting.

Melissa- o crap i didn't even see it!

Ben- it's like a slimy turtle.

Jake: that is NOT gonna win. it looks good but it just doesn't cut it.

and the winner is: Melissa
the loser is: Russ. called it!!!!
* can't find all of them
be posting later ~Bye-Bye!
