one: This is complaints, a place to whine about things you do not like. Think about that before you read a complaint, as this is a place for complaining.
two: Someone obviously makes something for people that like it. No fucking shit. I'm not saying "YOU, STOP SUPPORTING ADVENTURE TIME RIGHT NOW", I'm saying that I don't like it and I don't like everyone kissing its glorious ass for being so close but not obtaining the sweet and sugary cigar.
Agreed. I miss stuff that had an actual freakin' PLOT.
And I've been keeping an eye on Generator Rex. I'm actually growing to like it more and more with each new episode...and I totally dismissed it when I first heard about it. I thought it was going to be completely idiotic. Especially the talking monkey. So overdone.
And damnit. I can't believe I'm saying it, but...that monkey has grown on me. And I just plain dislike monkeys in general. Check out some of their good episodes, like "Without a Paddle" (one of my favorites, so damn funny), "Promises, Promises", "Basic", "Prom"...you might be surprised.
I had the same experience with Symbionic Titan. I thought it would suck, then just as it was getting good, they canceled it. Assholes.
I was so disappointed when Ben10 Alien Force clearly went down the crapper. It started out good, but there's hardly been anything good since then
We've been robbed of some glorious cartoons. Damn cartoon network. Take your live action shit and shove it. Bring back toonami and all the good series with plotlines!
A valid complaint indeed. You are certainly not alone.
Yes, the talking monkey did end up making me groan, but I don't think I've seen any episodes that really gave him any exposition, so he still kinda makes me groan with "God so overdone."
I'll lookit those episodes you mentioned. I never really liked Ben 10 Alien Farce since it was canon-raping the second they introduced Kevin as a protagonist and changed up gwen's [link] into "oh yeah she's an alien, and so was those other two guys. What lucky charms? What're those? Huh? NOT LISTENING LA LA LA". That and the whole romance between gwen and kevin. Why not just add in a new damn character to be the stupid tough guy? Kevin was a damn good antagonist with an obsession with killing ben- FOR GOOD REASON.
And when ben turns the guy into a hideous freak again? ONLY SLIGHTLY GODAMN SPITEFUL.
WHAT THE FUCK HOW DOES THAT BEGIN TO MAKE SENSE
I only saw one episode of Symbiotic Titan. It was the one where nerdy robot guy must give tutoring to preppy idiot blonde. It was horribly corny, but I'd like to give it a second shot.
I was never crazy about the original Ben10 because Ben and Gwen were both so obnoxious. I didn't start to like it until I saw the first season of Alien Force, where Ben wasn't such an unbearable brat. But then, of course, after a few seasons, he reverted back to the arrogant ass that turned me off to the series in the first place. Ultimate Alien has done NOTHING to help the situation.
So, since my like of the show stemmed from Alien Force, I guess I was able to overlook such obvious, gaping plotholes. But yeah, Gwen is still a major bitch, that much hasn't changed, and the relationship between her and Kevin...wtf. I don't even know why anyone would want to be FRIENDS with Gwen. She's a condescending know-it-all smartass who treats her cousin like crap (and Ben takes it), and she just happens to have spurts of soft heartedness when it suits the plot for her to be the wise female.
The alien thing WAS totally weak; as was the sudden appearance of grandma. As absolutely horrificly poorly done as the live action movies were, I do recall Max saying that his wife had "passed".
I gotta say, I do love some of the utterly guy moments that occur between Kevin and Ben though. Those two make an entertaining pair of pals at times.
Dont forget that Charmcaster is also ruined as a villain too. She was so easy to hate.
Oh god I remember the Symbionic Titan episode you're talking about. You caught the worst possible episode I think
As for the talking monkey Bobo, he's mostly played comedic relief so far (and there are times he does a damn good job of it too). Maybe he'll get more development soon

I heard Adventure Time was surreal and for potheads. I do watch it, so don;t bash me with the occassion F--- you. I do agree that CN has sucky shows, now. But I don't think Adventure Time sucks. I think AT has that idea of it's fun to adventure, just saying. No, it;s not as good as PPG or Dexter I'm afraid.
I like adventure time for surreal, creative enviornments, characters and situations. It's not always funny, but it's sure as hell compelling and entertaining. It's weird, vague, setting allows it to do a wide variety of things each episode, kinda like samurai jack (not comparing those two, just saying.) The thing that sets adventure time apart from most CN shows now is that it's actually INTERESTING, unlike the horrible repetitive crap like Johnny test and hole in the wall, etc.
You're right, it is quite interesting... until you realize that it's actually quite shoddy and only skin deep.
You really want to know more about the area Adventure Time is set in and you really wanna know some more exposition on how it got that way. You either have to listen to the rumor that it is a nuke wasteland or [link] research the damn show to find out by the creator it's supposed to be a wasteland.
It's just sad how everything has a lot of potential to be deep but it all ends up being pretty shallow. It's that way because "hey, I'm making money, why should I give a shit?"
Yeah, I can understand that. I guess it wasn't ever meant to be something especially meaningful. All the moral lessons about "Violence being the answer" in oh so many of its episodes kinda hint at that.
Although their doing some cool stuff next season. Like the "Timeskip grown up characters" episode, and the "gender swap world" episode.
