Fans complain about lack of Sonic character in Knuckles Show

Fans are upset over lack of screen time for Knuckles in new Sonic miniseries, sparking mixed reactions among viewers and critics.

It appears that history may be repeating itself in the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise, and not in a good way. The new Knuckles miniseries, based on the Sega franchise, has just been released with all six episodes available for streaming on Paramount+. However, fans are already expressing their dissatisfaction with the amount of screen time given to the CGI character.

Set between the events of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and the upcoming third film in the franchise, Idris Elba reprises his role as Knuckles, the hot-headed red echidna. This time, Knuckles takes the lead as he navigates life on Earth and trains a deputy sheriff in the ways of the Echidna warrior.

Despite the promising premise, fans are disappointed with the way the show has been executed. Many have taken to social media platforms to express their frustration, particularly with the lack of focus on Knuckles in the series. Some fans have even pointed out specific episodes where Knuckles only had a minute or less of screen time in a 23-minute show.

While there are fans who have praised the show for its interactions between beloved Sonic characters, the overall reception seems to be mixed. Some view the miniseries as an average addition to the Sonic the Hedgehog universe, falling short of expectations.

It seems that the Sonic franchise has a knack for stirring up strong opinions among fans, reminiscent of the backlash over Sonic's initial design in the 2020 movie. Despite the mixed reactions, it's clear that the Sonic universe continues to captivate and engage audiences, even if not always in the way intended by the creators.
