Adult Animated Comedy Web Series Episode Review: Camp Camp - Romeo & Juliet II: Love Resurrected

Romeo & Juliet II: Love Resurrected is an episode of Camp Camp primarily focused on Preston Goodplay, the sole Camp Campbell camper in the theater camp. There are also side stories with Max continuing to mess with David, as well as an on-brand love triangle.

Preston wrote a science fiction sequel to Romeo & Juliet and the camp is putting on the play on the stage. Even the series protagonists, Max, Nikki, and Neil, are roped into helping with the play. Neil and Nikki try their best, but Max hilariously does as little emotion as he can with his lines. The reason for this becomes clear when Max steals David's cell phone.

Max's pranks are more memorable than the play, but the threads are woven together well when two unexpected females come to Camp Campbell searching for a boyfriend. The season's background story involving Cameron Campbell pops up, and the way it is resolved is hilarious.

Romeo & Juliet II: Love Resurrected finally formally introduces the magic camp camper shown in the premiere episode. He is best taken in small doses, a fact of which the writing staff was obviously aware. There are several background stories going on behind the play which are pleasingly welded together in a way that is very funny and is executed well. 

Love Resurrected is neither the best episode of the season nor the funniest. However, it is an important episode as it introduces a character that will shown be quite a bit later on. It also has a lot of funny scenes that should please fans.

Final Verdict:
3½ out of 5
