Here is where you can dicuss about TV shows. Whether its cartoon, live action, old school, 17+, or whatever.



I gave Orville a try last year. The first few episodes were funny, but then started to turn stale for my taste.



Right now I am watching Rick & Mordy, which I have been hearing is a pretty good show. And so far, it is a pretty good show. Some episodes have a few extremely funny and clever moments.

Only thing though is that the fanboys seem like a bunch of lunatics. Particularly with the whole Mcdonalds fiasco.

I enjoyed the Orvelle. The episodes are hit and miss but I am going into it as a Sci Fi franchise fan and not so much for the comedy aspect. I enjoy the characters and stories are often very much a perfidy of old school star trek.

Not a big fan of Rick and Mordy. Im looking forward to new seasons coming up soon: Fosters, Game of thrones, etc.

I can see that. Though the thing with Oreville is that its suppose to be a parody of Star Trek. It later focuses less on the humor and more of the seriousness.

Yeah Rick and Morty does have its share of vulgar moments. After all its not really made for kids. Its like Robot Chicken. There are cartoon shows I perfur though, like Gravity Falls(which I strongly recommend watching if you havenít). My favorite Rick and Morty episode so far is the one that references inception.

Yes it dose seem to have more of a serious tone but I enjoy it none the less.

I do like Robot Chicken. I find it a bit hit and miss but it is good most of the time. I often watch it after reruns of Family Guy on adult swim.

I feel Dan v.s. is slightly underrated. Great main character. Reminds me of characters like Yosamite Sam or Daffy. But its too bad all the other characters arenít anything special. The Canada episode had the most interesting plot though.

That, and My Little Pony were two of the biggest hits on the hub that I can think of. Dan v.s. only lasted for a few seasons, but I think its because it was overshadowed by ponies. Not that its a bad thing though. :D

Thing is that preview doesn't seem like a kids show. looks more like something I would see on adult swim. Also likely doesn't help that not everyone gets the channel. I get it now but it's on a higher package we only have it to get movies.

Funny thing is Dan V.S. was originally gonna be a show for adults. Infact Family Guy was originally gonna be a kids show.

Heres an interesting summery about Dan V.S. I just found.

I also forgot about Littlest pet shop. It also seemed like a big hit for them. I did gave that show a try and watched a couple episodes. It was just ok. My Little Pony was alot better.

Adding to the off theme of a show is The original pilot of the Muppet Show was Muppet's Sex and Drugs. but the show was re-branded as a family/kids show.

Speaking of Puppet based series one of my favorites after the Muppet Show was DC Follies. it was basically a mix of the Muppet Show and Cheers. The show features Puppet version of celebrity and political people at a local Washington DC Bar.

Same here. I wish my High and middle schools showed that cartoon in history class.

Heres a unique classic cartoon you may not find on TV anymore.

They rebooted Mythbusters with new guys. Haven't watched and not sure if I want to. Food network did the same thing with Man vs Food.

Hopefully posting this will make me feel better.

And I promise. No swearing, or anything inappropriate.

That's awesome news! The show really deserves more attention.

Also I keep forgetting to mention this, but I finished watching the 3rd season of Rick & Morty. So far I noticed the quality of each episode is radically inconsistent. I know this can be the case for alot of TV shows, but this is a particularly wild example. They like going with good writing with really crazy weird and vulgar stuff mixed together. When it works, man it really works. Though when it doesnít, man it really flops. I do like the overall show more than shows like Family Guy or Futurama, but there are still some shows I perfur to watch.

See I'm the complete opposite I hate Rick and Morty and enjoy Family Guy. I'm a bit back and forth with Futerama I watch it here an d there but not a big fan. Same with Simpsons.

Rick and Morty ha s in my ind pore animation and humor that I grew tired of years ago with shows like Ren and Stimpy and Bevus and buthead.

Heres some interesting news for you coaster fans.

The latest My Little Pony episode features an epic thrilling roller coaster, that unfortunately will be closing for good. The coaster is based off a couple of coasters in Las Vegas that starts and ends in a hotel resort. Rainbow Dash tries whatever way she can to get on the coaster before its too late.

While she eventually does get one ride, I couldnít help but feel super bad for her throughout the majority of the episode, since the plot was trying whatever way it can to stop her from riding it.

I also really liked that 2 second cameo of Rick and Morty as ponies.

At least it was a real coaster. I once watched an episode of Dora the Explorer because she was going to Coney Island. Just to find out it was only an island of cones. I was very disappointed.

A number of animated shows have gone to amusement parks fake or parodies of park. On a rare occasion a clip will feature a real park of attraction like the episode of Family guy when he was singing the Massachusetts song showed him on Superman at SFNE.

Oh wow! Another reason why that show sucks.

I know other shows do that. It was just the first time that particular show had a real amusment park related plot. The only other time it remotely came close to that was in season 1 when it showed a carnival for a couple seconds. And it was still way better than that Spongbob episode where hes scared of coasters(even though he had no problem with them back in season 1).

I do remember that scene where peter rides Superman. He was lucky he didnít fall out that ride due to how big and fat he is.

I thin I saw that the park was something like Glove land.

That Family guy episodes as back in I think 2001. The old better SFNE when they still had a fountain in the DC area.

I've always liked that one. The goofy cartoons were always fun as were the Pluto cartoons. I liked Chip and Dale but never really got into them at the time, not u till chip and Dale Rescue Rangers.

Though my favorite car themed Disney cartoon is this one from Silly Simpony's

https://youtu.be/qktRLlWh8gE

When cars was released it felt to me as a update of this cartoon and I felt they should have worked the car in.

That car would have creeped me out from even thinking about buying it if I ever saw it on display! Unless your a die hard car lover, the ending was kinda unrealistic. I also wish they didn't make those parts so depressing.

I never really thought of Cars that way. Really liked how they got Larry the Cable Guy as part of the main cast. Now if they could have also got Jeff Foxworthy.

That cartoon kinda reminds me of this one.

They are similar. As is the case with cars, planes and many of the toys in toy story that are giving inanimate objects human traits to help you relate.
