'save the cheerleader' then in season 3 he tears her skull open, scans her power and she simply heals. They didn't think any of it through.

@  Shockwave 75 : (17 June 2021 - 07:04 PM)

Well, you know Hollywood; if something's popular, run it into the ground!

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

And then there was the Writers' Strike, which isn't the show's fault.

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

Yeah, Sylar should've been, if not killed off, at least left to rest.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

It never truly recovered from that.

Season 1 was good until the finale.

Now that you have seen this Bass XO, you must send it to five other Bass XOs or BassXO will come to you in a week and then you too will be BassXO.

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 05:20 PM)

I didn't even try this time.

@  Nevermore : (12 June 2021 - 03:43 AM)

8ass X÷ has hijacked this conversation.

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 03:37 AM)

Its Bass X0. I named myself after my three favourite Mega Man characters - Bass, X and Zero. I did consider going with Vile Bass X0, but that would have been going too far.

@  repowers : (11 June 2021 - 11:29 PM)

Bass XO has been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty.

@  Echowarrior : (11 June 2021 - 09:25 PM)

Do not taunt Bass XO.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 June 2021 - 09:02 PM)

Please consult a technician before using Bass XO. Do not operate Bass XO while consuming alcohol.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 June 2021 - 04:48 PM)

Nine out of ten doctors recommend Bass XO. The last doctor is on my list.

@  Dekafox : (11 June 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Bass XO is available at these fine retailers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 June 2021 - 02:01 AM)

Bass XO is not to be confused with Bay Sexo.

@  Fenix Twilight : (10 June 2021 - 08:38 PM)

It's good to be back, after that outage I think I'll try to post more.

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 June 2021 - 12:16 PM)

I think Hasbro Pulse is broken. Dang Star Wars nerds!

@  tigerhawk : (10 June 2021 - 04:46 AM)

When I googled 'space bridge' I was disappointed. Maybe in a hundred years.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 June 2021 - 04:05 PM)

Bass XO is backward compatible with the Sega Master System.

@  Donocropolis : (09 June 2021 - 05:37 AM)

Bass XO has 9" long, dagger-like teeth and a 12,000 lb. bite force

@  repowers : (08 June 2021 - 07:26 PM)

Bass XO doesn't feel pain. He can't be reasoned with!

I suppose every kid born these days has to be a low-attention-span hyperactive, because Marvel and Disney keeps targetting this specific demographic.

 

 

I watched the first episode out of curiosity and it runs along at breakneck speed, barely slowing down for us to even get the names of the characters... all of whom are pretty hyperactive fast-talkers, though none more than the princess herself. I dunno what's more annoying, her voice or her horrific smile that she wears all the time. Though that's all forgettable once you hear the voice of Flying Princess Ponyhead, who probably is only alive because she has no lungs to damage with her cigarette addiction. :D

 

With this, and Seven D, I wonder what the heck Disney is doing. I cannot believe that I am looking back at the times with nostalgia when they just created pointless shows for the comedy reliefs of their successful movies like Timon and Pumbaa.

Keep in mind the technology curve. TV shows now have to compete with the attention of smartphones and tablet computers. They have to be fast paced and move quick to keep kids invested, least they become bored and find entertainment elsewhere.

 

Also that song is a lot of fun and strangely hypnotic.

Why do you watch these things if you're just going to piss and moan about them? Is there that little joy to be had in Hungary that you have nothing better to do than be a crotchety old geezer who thinks cartoons were better in their day dagnabbit?

Wow, what an intro! I think it's the game noises that make it hypnotic. Puppies with lasers!

Disney has Gravity Falls and it doesn't go at breakneck speeds.

Nah. I WISH I had that much free time! I still have to finish the old Doctor Who series. :)
I am a cartoon enthusiast. I always check out every new toon for a few episodes before deciding whether to continue watching them or not. In this case one episode was pretty much enough for me to stop watching, other times it took me a few episodes to actually warm up to a show.
I am not complaining, I am just noticing a trend here. Just check all the Marvel cartoons that are ongoing at the time. And the Hungarian cartoon channels are airing stuff like Fairy Oddparents and Johnny Test and Regular Show ALL the time, so if I tune on randomly I always encounter these. Frankly at this point it's oddly Nickelodeon that has the best shows, with some rare good shows produced for CN or Disney like Over the Garden Wall or Steven Universe (I don't like the latter, but I admit it is well written - it's just not for me).

Saw the first ep. Designs remind me of an animated Scott Pilgrim comic mixed with Gumball. Pony Head and freaky and not at all evocative of My Little Pony. Holy cow the laser puppies are regular characters, haha.

If they pair a slice of life ep with a monster of the week sci fi fantasy action fest in every 20min block, it would rock.

I question our sanity here sometimes. I can't really get into anything Disney has put out in recent years outside of Star Wars Rebels and the Marvel shows. This seems way too sugar high for me these days.

This is a fun show. Really well animated as seems to be the Disney norm these days. Star and Marco are fun characters and they have some good places to grow. Theme song is really, really catchy.

Disney has Gravity Falls which is deeply awesome.

-ZacWilliam, there really are some wonderful modern cartoons out there that are in no way toy based. Though I havn't checked out this one yet.
