Aardman’s subversive, saintly Shaun the Sheep arrives again on disc, but he’s relevant no matter the medium.
Seasons three and four join their previous seasons, as well as an overachieving 2015 feature film, well situated in the mediaverse. But Shaun the Sheep doesn’t have a proper window of entry, if you will.
A wordless wonder in the tradition of Chaplin, with an eye to rural labor and love, Aardman’s all-ages, stop-motion masterpiece is for everyone, everywhere.
I’ve written for many publications about Aardman’s work — and even predicted the crossover success of Shaun the Sheep‘s (surprising) feature, with director Richard Starzak — and I probably always will. Watch it now, with anyone near you.
