I was wondering if anyone else here has been keeping up with the current TMNT series?  I hadn't paid much attention to it for a few years until my cousin recommended it recently.  I remember watching the first season on and off a little over a year ago and liking what I saw, so I decided to binge-watch the rest of the series, and I've just now caught up.

I'm honestly amazed at how good (not to mention mature) the series is for a Nick show, falling just behind both the Avatar series.  While the original '80s show was overly goofy and the 4Kids show was more serious, the new show is a healthy mix of both.  Nostalgia could've quite possibly played a key factor as there is a lot of throwbacks to the '80s show and its toy line (I was a huge collector as a kid and could pretty much guess the names of most new mutants as they were introduced), but even without that the storytelling is solid and for the most part treats its audience like adults.  The only part I didn't care for all that much was the space travel arc.

I'm also surprised what they're able to get away with in this show, especially in the later seasons.  Hell, the most recent episode had Splinter get straight-up drunk.  I'd post a link but all the Youtube clips are terrible quality.

I've heard really good things about the show. I was surprised when my cousin told me

Spoiler

at some point the Earth actually gets destroyed.

I'd like to give it a watch when I get the chance. I liked the turtles when I was a kid, but kinda fell off the wagon sometime in middle/high school.

I watch Wheel of Fortune sometimes and I get the impression Pat Sajak really abhors his job. It's like he doesn't want to be there anymore but the network is holding him hostage.

Pat really does not like the prize wheel at the end. The contestants always spin it too fast and he hates the five seconds of dead air as they wait for the wheel to stop. He always rambles incoherently at this time and he just seems terribly uncomfortable. It's an awkward way to end the episodes.

The network seems scared to replace Pat Sajak and Alex Trebek, but they will need to find new hosts eventually. They can keep Vanna tho. She's still looking fine. 

My main issue with Wheel of Fortune is that they've basically slapped ads all over the place. For example: "Tonight's jackpot, brought to you by..." or "This wedge, brought to you by...". FUCKIN' ENOUGH! Sooner or later, they're going to start sponsoring every puzzle and every spin at this rate.

Wheel of V8 

There is no puzzle to solve. Monetary values on the wheel have been replaced with flavors of V8. When the wheel lands on a juice wedge, the customer wins that flavor of V8. When the wheel lands on bankrupt, the contestant loses all their juice, the audience chants "Shoulda Had a V8™" and Vanna White smacks the contestant on the head. No one ever wins this game.

Aleve Presents: Jeopardy! 

All the clues are something like "THIS IS THE BEST PRODUCT YOU CAN USE TO CURE A HEADACHE." The answer is always "What is Aleve?" No one ever wins this game.

ETA: "contestant" keeps autocorrecting to "customer." I do not want to change it. Like, you have to pay to be on the show.

Has anybody else been keeping up with Star Vs. FOE? It's still Starbruary, and I saw the newest episode just now.

I'm also wondering if we should just have a thread for this show if there's enough interest in it.

Aside from a handful of people here including myself, I don't know how many other people watch Star, though I wouldn't be opposed to a thread.

Things are starting to get real good in the show, too.

I see enough Star Butterfly and Heckapoo avatars and sigs on the site that I thought that a lot of people around here were at least keeping up with it.

And you're so right, the show is getting really good this season. It was around Bon Bon the Birthday Clown that I felt a need to actually hang around /r/starvstheforcesofevil

Saw the latest episode of Star vs. the Forces of Evil this morning. The title, Just Friends, should suggest something, but this is one of those episodes where fans freak the fuck out when watching it.

Spoiler

It looks like Star won't be in a relationship with Marco after all, and you can tell how much it hurts her to let that happen. Star played matchmaker for Marco and Jackie, and now she's starting to regret it. Also, she fucking murdered that billboard at the end of the episode, lol.

I'm not completely sure where the writers are even going to take things from here, considering Jackie isn't very developed as a character. She and Marco don't seem to know each other all that well, either, so whether they really make the relationship work or find out it was just surface-level is anyone's guess at this point.

There's two more episodes next week to conclude Starbruary, and the titles of those two episodes in particular make it seem like it's going to be a rough one.

I turn 24 in a few months, so it's surreal to think that Seth McFarlane was only a year older than I'm going to be when he got his own animated series. As an cartoonist myself, it's like there's still time for me to achieve my dreams, but at the same time it's also like "what the hell am I even doing with my life", y'know?

I mean, I doubt anyone even gives a shit about Family Guy anymore, but it really makes me think.

I think back then there was just so many more opportunities to make something and sell your idea at a young age. Companies took bigger risks in them days. I always think about how EEnE was pitched and accepted with just a picture of the Ed boys faxed right to CN. That would never happen now, and it's crazy that there was a time where it seemed that easy.

That's true. You could also say it's easier to work in that field now thanks to the rise of technology, which has made producing and distributing your work much more accessible than it was a mere 18 years ago.

Granted, that's how Annoying Orange and Fred got their own TV shows, but still.

So I decided to give TMNT a try, but I'm watching the 2012 version instead of the classic show, which will be in my watching list after I finished the 2012 version. The character development was pretty good and I really like the humor of this show. I heard Season 5 is their last season, so I decided to catch up with it. I'm currently on Episode 5 of Season 1. Let the Season 5 challenge begin!

I just finished Stranger Things last night. Aside from Nancy's early scenes and the epilogue (epilogues rarely work anyway), I liked it quite a bit. They really did their work on the early '80s atmosphere, especially with the music, and the story was interesting enough to keep it all afloat. It might not be very surprising, and I think they should have waited longer to reveal most of the plot points, but overall, it's just too well-done for that to really matter. And the child actors are great! Better than the adults and teens, actually - that never happens. Anyway, I'm looking forward to season 2.
