Woo! Another vague-topic thread!

Anyways, I watched an episode of Adventure Time last week (there was a marathon going on), and man, I have no words to describe it. It was like someone locked a group of five year olds in a room and forced them to write a script, then ripped up that script and forced a fifteen year old to re-write it even though he had never even read the original script. This script was then animated on two outdated Macs, both of which are running Windows for some reason.

So, yes, it was pretty good. Got some good laughs.

But Flapjack and Chowder? Bah. Their creators shall be the first to go when Google establishes a new world order!

Wg=hat's wrong with Flap? I like Chowder, but I can see why people don't like that, but Flapjack? Underneath that happy go lucky boy, the show has a lot of cynicism.


To be honest I really don't care for any of CN's new shows (especially those "CN Real" shows, thank god most of them stopped production).

Phineas and Ferb on the other hand is awesome. Planty the Potted Plant is by far my favorite character from that show, shame he was only in 1 episode.

On the Avatar side of things, the new series (of course) looks awesome, but I'm not quite sure how I feel about mixing steampunk and Avatar.


Avatar already had a few steampunk influences, like The Air Temple that was converted into a more industrial state.

Well, the reason that I don't really care for Flapjack isn't so much because I think it's absolute crap. Its that there's just has something about it I can't really explain that I don't like.

Yeah that's true, but it wasn't on anywhere near the same scale or level of advancement as the city seems like it's going to be. Avatar always had a very pure... naturey feel to me. Obviously, the exceptions were FN tech and The Northern Temple, but that just made them all the more wrong on some level.

Ok, anyone else wanna see Batman The Animated Series back on the air? I'm talking the 90's version with Mark Hamill as the Joker, Bruce Timm's design, the show that took it's audience seriously. Anyone else wanna see this show back on the air?

Yes, but I also want Batman:TBAB back too. Yes, BTAS was great, but do the same thing too much and it got boring. Brave and the Bold brought a refreshing look to Batman that hasn't been seen in years. When people try dissing the show as "not the true Batman", I always think of this quote.

"Batman's rich history allows him to be interpreted in a multitude of ways. To be sure, this is a lighter incarnation, but it's certainly no less valid and true to the character's roots than the tortured avenger crying out for mommy and daddy."

Agreed on both counts. BTAS was an amazing cartoon, but if all they did was show old reruns it would get old quick and it would kind of ruin it.
The Brave and the Bold, while about as different as possible from any modern incarnations of Batman can be pretty entertaining. If you can get past the fact that it's a completely different take on Bats and that you shouldn't take it as seriously as the animated series, it's actually pretty good. They managed to strike a balance between the... (for lack of a better word) hokiness of the Adam West version and still allowing you to at least take it seriously enough not to laugh every time something terrible happens to Batman. Now I'm not saying that the show is amazing, but it's quite refreshing and fun to watch.

I totally agree on the Brave & the Bold. That show is incredibly entertaining. I just wish Marvel had thought of something like it (with Spider Man & Marvel Team Up).

And the nostalgia is too much! Someone call a lifeguard, cause I'm drowning in it!

Note: But seriously, the old stuff was great, but we need to move on. The world's next greatest show is out there... Waiting...

*Throws Marv a life preserver (don't feel like swimming)*

But yeah agreed on the nostalgia part. The awesome old stuff was great and is still great to go back to now and then, but you need to know when to let go of it and move on. Now that doesn't mean that you should stop liking it (definitely not), but don't just go around complaining that they should bring it back to the prime time line-up.
