It’s been awhile since the arrival of a promising new puppet web series has been heralded here on the blog, and Bernie Says So is one of the most promising to come along in some time.
The series bills itself as being about “WW2 veteran takes no prisoners in the fight against stupid!”. The main character is Bernie, a 90 year old World War II veteran offering commentary from his recliner and laptop. It’s a promising premise and I especially appreciate the cinematic approach that’s been used to film it.
The series features puppeteers Ken Schellin, Matthew Balz, Daniel Greinke, and Matthew Metcalf and the Bernie puppet was built by Kathy Smith.
Bernis Says So is already two episodes in to its six episode first season run, with plans for a second season already underway. Look for new episodes every Monday in the Bernie Says So YouTube Channel.
