All things considered, the Korrasami ending didn't leave much of an impression on me in the long run. Their rapport throughout the entirety of the series didn't feel as established as the rest of the characters, so when it was revealed that the were in lesbians or whatever with each other, it was just like...okay? It didn't feel earned.

I'm not one to shit on representation, either. It really did just feel like it came out of nowhere.

Now I just finished Game of Thrones' seventh season (yeah yeah, I know I'm late). I liked it well enough, but it had some stupid moments and a lot of clunky dialogue, and more of that than usual. I can't tell if the show's actually worse or if I've just become numb to it, and nobody else can seem to agree on that, either. I'll still watch the eighth season, but I'm not holding my breath like I used to. Also:

Spoiler

That scene of Jon and Dany having sex was literally the dumbest thing I've ever seen. I guess a zombie dragon is technically dumber than that, but dragons are cool, so that doesn't really count. Maybe if they knew each other longer, weren't related, and didn't look like they were shooting a porno, it would've come off better. Whatever.

I've still gotta finish Legend of Korra in the meantime, if I can get past Korra's jackass phase...

That announced Animaniacs reboot that was slated for Netflix is now going to Hulu in 2020. They have also subsequently acquired the streaming rights for the original Animaniacs, Tiny Toon Adventures, Pinky and The Brain, Elmyra, Pinky, and The Brain(??) and a few of those Animaniacs/Tiny Toons specials and movies.

Damn, this was such a power move on Hulu's part. Netflix really let it slip through their fingers. Between this and the already prominent library of TV shows Hulu has under its belt, they are definitely gaining an edge over the competition. I find myself watching Hulu more than Netflix nowadays regardless but wow.

I hope the Animaniacs reboot is nothing but Jerry Lee Lewis impressions, 40's borscht belt humor, and references to 30's comedies nobody remembers.

To commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day, History Channel is marathoning American Pickers. They're not airing a single documentary or biography on MLK. The channel has been garbage for years, but come on. They need to play relevant programming on historically important holidays.

Seems that the King family's pretty pissed about this when they didn't broadcast any documentary/biography about MLK. History Channel is shit now, and it makes me glad we don't have that channel anymore.

They went to hell when they started airing bullshit about alien conspiracies and reality show garbage that shouldn't have been on there to begin with. Last I checked, the channel's intention was to educate and inform people about historical events and conflicts, not talk about the daily lives of backwoodsmen and truckers that drive in icy climates, both of which are most-likely staged for dramatization.

History, TLC, Discovery... they all let their programming degrade into reality tv trash. It's a shame there are so few educational programs on tv. PBS is the lone beacon of hope.

Muppet Babies reboot teaser trailer has been released:

At least the animation looks very decent. Too bad about Skeeter and Skooter not being in this reboot because they're in the classic version for Pete's sake. Let's just hope this version doesn't suck like the rest of the reboots (well OK, not every reboot is bad).  And oh my God that penguin's adorable!

The art's getting savaged on Twitter from what I can tell.

And...egh, the politics of racebending characters is never fun. I get the need to diversify, but when you take a preexisting character and change their race, it's just...iffy. And to be fair, yes, I know that's been done before with the likes of Baxter Stockman, but with April, I dunno, it just feels weird.

Then again I never gave a shit about TMNT to begin with so what do I care.

What's cool is that former TMNT veteran Rob Paulsen will be voice directing this new series. Talk about coming full circle.

Also fun fact, apparently April O'Neil used to be a black(?)/brown skinned woman in the original comics, so take of that what you will...

Forgot to mentioned, but they're making this series a bit light-hearted than TMNT 2012 series (Don't get me wrong, I like the 2012 series, but the story is a bit off and had some plotholes, but that doesn't stop me from watching the show). Let's just hope the 2018 version is better since I really do not want a Teen Titans Go 2.0.

I love how so many people seem to complain about cartoons nowadays looking "too safe," "too round," etc., and not have the edgy, pointy style that was somewhat prevalent in the 90s and mid-2000s, but when a show nowadays finally goes with the latter style, people come out of the woodworks to shit on it and say it looks ugly. I guess you just can't please everyone, but it still just really irks me.

Regarding April being black, I found this nice little blog post detailing whether or not she was black in the original comics. Basically, she was white in the comics, but originally supposed to be Asian, but also partially inspired by the co-creator's then-girlfriend who was black. One of the TMNT co-creators says he always thought April was white, the other says he always thought she could be mixed. In the end, it doesn't matter what color she is, her character and personality have never been tied to her race, and anyone throwing a tantrum over her being black in this cartoon is just being a big, dumb, racist baby.

Since the Eagles won the super bowl, we definitely need a new season of Always Sunny. It's easy to imagine the gang going on a riot while celebrating the win. Through some kind of misunderstanding or failed revenge, they're the ones who start the fire. Frank and Charlie trying to climb greased up poles. The episode writes itself.

I still need to watch that show but I'm assuming there would be an episode in that season where Danny Devito turns into an anthropomorphic piece of candy

God, if I had a nickel for every time somebody said "I'll take [X crappy cartoon] any day over thin outlines/roundness/CalArts shit etc." It seems like nobody ever misses a beat in saying it, even on this forum, and it's almost never true.

Another season of Always Sunny would be great, but the show won't be the same without Glenn Howerton (if he's actually leaving).
