Episode 2 follows a similar path to episode 1, but improves on nearly everything. The episode is funnier, the plot is better, and it has me cautiously optimistic for next week.
Digman! Episode 2
Digman! Episode 2 – Et Tu follows a very similar pattern to episode 1, you can find that review here. A lot of crude jokes, some small story that occurs over the course of the episode, and a couple of things that add to the season long story. The biggest difference is this week’s episode is much funnier than last weeks. Pair that with a more interesting story, and you get a better episode. It wasn’t great by any means, but it gives me hope for the rest of the season.
Saltine continues to be a really great character in this show, filling in the holes between jokes and goofy moments with some actual treasure hunting. Rip’s accent is starting to grow on me. It’s still goofy, but it’s less terrible now. The character is finding his feet as we go along, and the entire cast of characters was better this week. The new characters added some intrigue, and although the connections to the over-arcing story were small, the ground work is being laid for something larger to come.
I don’t want to talk about the episode itself too much, but I really enjoyed the adventure we go on this week. The artifact is cool, the location is awesome, Italy is very cool, and there were some clever names to go along with our new characters. It’s a quick story, but this show is so easy to just sit down and watch that I really enjoyed it this week.
With the episode only being 20 minutes, there isn’t a lot to talk about. Overall, it was a decent episode that builds on last week. The animation style continues to be interesting, and the cast of underdog characters has me coming back to this show, curious for what is coming next. Digman! is going to be a show you either like or really don’t like. There is no in-between in my opinion. If you enjoyed episode 1, you will enjoy episode 2, but if not I would steer clear of Digman!
