Finally an interesting and informative reality show
I normally can’t stand most competition shows or reality shows due to the stereotypical contestants and mean-spirited judges. Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge is the complete opposite of the usual formula. The judges are supportive and provide constructive criticism. All of the contestants are real people and not aspiring actors. They did a great job of finding a diverse group of contestants. I hope more competition shows follow the formula that Creature Shop Challenge is using.
Dying to see more seasons of this
Fantastic show; ditto past reviewers praising how much better it is than the tired old reality show formula. Talented contestants, fascinating feedback and commentary from the excellent judges, and a glimpse at what goes into the incredible worlds imagined by Jim Henson and created by today’s artists. I’ll be buying the full pass for future seasons!!
I really loved this show.
I’m bummed that they didn’t bring this show back for a second season. It was really cool. I imagine this would be a difficult show to continue to produce because you would run out of talented people.
