Sending this to a very pretty lady tonight. In turn, to diminish the sincerity, I’m sending it to you beautiful people as well.

raggedy-whooves asked: Actually ReBoot is making a comeback. Rainmaker has even gone so far as to reestablish Mainframe Entertainment for it.

They’ve been saying this since 2004. Wish it were true but until I see a trailer I’m just going to assume it’s in development hell. They’ve been “developing” a Samurai Jack movie now since it went off air too. Getting these shows back on air is always easier said than done. Just look how long it took them to bring Arrested Development back and that was only because Netflix started to create its own content. 

Hope your right though.

TV Shows that Need a Comeback: Reboot

I’m not really sure how I missed this Reboot. For those that don’t remember it because you were doing something silly like playing outside or enjoying family dinner, Reboot was one of the first CG shows and it centered on a group of AI’s who exist in a game console.

Every week their user would play a new game and they in turn would have to beat him to avoid being deleted. You’d think that the characters would just avoid the games but the “game board,” being a giant cube, descends on their city and, again, if the user wins the entire portion of the city that was enveloped is destroyed.

This is all well and good for a nice Saturday morning cartoon but what really set it apart was the endless satire and parody the show would do on videogame and pop culture. It’s a shame that the series isn’t around now as video game sails are eclipsing the billion dollar range on some titles and the fervor that comes with the release of these new consoles there is a lot to be said about today’s climate. There’s always talks of bringing it back and I guess that’s why I didn’t include it before but regardless it needs to come back in a big way.

Here’s the multiple episode Daemon Rising. Enjoy.

Anonymous asked: The new Batman cartoon stacks up just fine. Also, what's wrong with making cartoon for kids? They are the targeted audience for cartoons you fool.

When I write about making a show for kids what I mean is that it panders to a false notion of what adults think kids want. They think children like simple motivations, dialogue and as few shades of grey as possible. And while some of that is true, that doesn’t mean every cartoon “meant for kids” should be formulaic and derivative.

I actually think it’s pretty fucking offensive to say that because a show is enjoyed by children that it inherently has to be moronic. By that logic that would mean that porn, something made for adults, is the highest of intellectual expressions.
