The Worst Episodes of I Am Not an Animal: When the Show Went Wild!

As a lover of all things animated and a self-proclaimed animal rights activist, I was ecstatic when I discovered I Am Not an Animal. Finally, a show that combined my two passions! However, as I delved deeper into the series, I couldn’t help but cringe at some of the episodes. From cringe-worthy dialogue to lackluster plotlines, these are the worst episodes of I Am Not an Animal that left me feeling disappointed. So, without further ado, let’s dive into the episodes that made me want to close my eyes and cover my ears.
Planet of the Men and Women

Episode 2 of ‘I Am Not an Animal’ is a chaotic mess that deserves a spot on the list of worst episodes. The six talking animals, who were liberated from a lab, enter the “planet of the men and women” and are immediately met with danger. They encounter wild animals and have a close encounter with an army firing range. The episode lacks coherence, and the plot is all over the place. The characters are poorly developed, and their actions seem random and nonsensical. The show’s attempts at humor fall flat, and the episode ends up being more confusing than entertaining. As one character aptly puts it, “This is madness!” – a sentiment that perfectly sums up this disaster of an episode.

“I Am Not an Animal” season 1, episode 3 is a lackluster addition to the series, with a plot that falls flat. The animals are faced with money troubles, which sounds like a potentially interesting premise, but the execution is underwhelming. The episode lacks the humor and wit that made the previous episodes enjoyable, and the characters are reduced to one-dimensional caricatures. The only memorable moment comes from the line, “I’m not a bloody charity case,” spoken by the parrot. Overall, this episode fails to live up to the promising start of the series and leaves viewers disappointed.

“I Am Not an Animal” Season 1 – Episode 4 is a cringe-worthy episode that deserves a spot on the list of worst episodes. The episode revolves around the love triangle between the animals, and it’s as absurd as it sounds. The romantic entanglement between the animals creates a ripple effect that leads to a series of unfortunate events, including a disastrous wedding. The episode’s most memorable moment is when the sheep, who is the object of affection, exclaims, “I’m not going to marry a duck!” It’s a bizarre episode that leaves you questioning the sanity of the show’s creators. Overall, it’s an episode that can be skipped without missing any crucial plot points.

“I Am Not an Animal” season 1, episode 5, was a bizarre and uncomfortable watch. The episode follows the animals as they are thrust into the limelight when one of them, a dog named Jake, becomes a famous TV star. The other animals are understandably jealous and feel left behind. However, the episode takes a dark turn when Jake’s newfound fame leads to his exploitation and mistreatment by humans. The uncomfortable scenes of Jake being forced to perform for his human handlers left a sour taste in my mouth. Overall, this episode was a disturbing commentary on the entertainment industry and how it can exploit and abuse those who are seen as lesser. It definitely deserves a spot on the list of the worst episodes of “I Am Not an Animal.”

“I Am Not an Animal” Season 1 Episode 6 is a lackluster finale that left fans feeling unsatisfied and underwhelmed. After following the absurd and hilarious journey of a group of animals who were transformed into humans, viewers were expecting a grand finale that would tie up loose ends and leave them feeling fulfilled. Instead, the episode simply shows the animals being set free and the humans returning to their normal lives. The lack of closure and resolution was disappointing and left fans feeling like they wasted their time investing in the show. One iconic quote from the episode was when one of the animals, a dog, says “I may be a dog, but I have more humanity than any of you.” This line was meant to be poignant and thought-provoking, but it fell flat in the context of the lackluster finale. Overall, “I Am Not an Animal” Season 1 Episode 6 deserves a spot on the list of worst episodes due to its lack of resolution, disappointing finale, and unfulfilled promises. It was a letdown for fans who were expecting more from the show.

“I Am Not an Animal” Season 1 Episode 1 is a total letdown. The show follows Julian Lovely and his group of Animal Activists as they break into Vivi-sec and set a batch of talking animals free. But things take a turn for the worse when they hijack a van and end up crashing. The episode is slow-paced and fails to create any significant tension or emotional depth. Even Philip the horse, the supposed leader of the talking animals, fails to leave a lasting impression. The only memorable moment is when Philip utters the line, “I am not an animal, I am a talking horse,” which feels like a cheap attempt at humor. Overall, this episode lacks the creativity and originality that could have made it a standout.
