Gee, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Nice new moving logo made of digital chains and bottom-of-the-barrel VHS replaced by a real DVD with a working menu! Impressive—for about two minutes.
Then the standard qualities kick in: cardboard dungeon; unbelievable "dominant" talk; poor videography. Content is the same: Pierce uses typical props to tie, whip, slap pinch, clip and generally make Ariel’s life more difficult.
A few twists include some kind of inflatable mouth gag and stockade. It all works with the same effectiveness as ever. If you have customers who can tolerate the quality control drawbacks, Ariel is worthwhile.
Retailing: Bonus scenes bring some added value.
