    batman the animated series
    do I need to say more?

    • 3 weeks ago

      Yes. It's actually extremely overrated. The writing has aged poorly, as has Kevin Conroy's performance (he really only found the perfect Batman voice toward the end of the series, and for the New Adventures revival, which makes a lot of people REEEEEEE because of the art style change.)

      People like to pretend that B:TAS is all "Heart of Ice", when in reality it's more "Batman in My Basement", by volume. Truly good episodes are few and far in-between, and most of them are, again, in the New Adventures revival series.

      I think it's easy to argue that B:TAS is outmatched not just by other DC animated offerings (JLU, Superman, Brave and the Bold), but it's own revival seasons. Plus OP said to defend your choice, so yeah, you kinda should say more.

    The Thief & the Cobbler is a masterpiece despite being left unfinished. If nothing else watch the war machine segment, it's mind-blowing, and that was all done by hand in the 70s without computers. Is it all that compelling as a story? No, not really, but western animation of that quality is literally a lost art, no one knows how to do it anymore, it isn't taught in schools

            Basically. I can't take it serious anymore. Boomers have turned into such shameless crybabies that I strongly feel they deserve to be deprived, even when they're in the right. They complain about "participation trophies" when their generation was the one that just threw hissyfits until they got a real trophy to shut them up.

            Ah yes, that's why he didn't hurt a single person there and the only actual threat was a negligent discharge. Fricking morons, the point of the scene is to show that he's starting to lose control but still doing and saying shit we all fundamentally agree with, that the rules of the machine are arbitrary and exist purely to keep people servile and in line.

            lmao, how much of a victim complex must the average boomer have in order to believe this? The cutoff for breakfast isn't "arbitrary"; it's there to keep a business running smoothly and to give customers straightforward guidelines on what is available to them at any given time. They're not denying you breakfast at 11:35 just to "keep you in line", they're doing it because they're gearing the whole kitchen up for a lunch rush and they want all hands on deck making burgers and fries and not fricking around with coffee machines and hash browns.

          The unnamed main character for a movie called Falling Down, which is about a boomer having a mental breakdown in traffic after its implied he just lost his job, just getting up and leaving it in the middle of the road, and walking across town getting into increasingly violent encounters where he vents his frustrations about how he is right, everyone else is wrong, and the world is at fault for not catering to him in the specific ways he feels entitled to.

          Thats not even an exaggeration, he pulls a gun on a shop owner because he is infuriated that drinks cost more than they did when he was a kid, and takes a not-mcdonalds hostage because he wants breakfast after they stopped serving it for the day.

          For obvious reasons, a certain kind of person idolizes him/the movie for the power fantasy of getting to threaten people with violence over minor, inane shit.

            It's called catharsis, and it's completely normal. Most people do have complaints about the rigid, uncatering system, and are too decent to vent on the underpaid service staff that are the face of said system. That's why it's satisfying to watch films like this; it lets you express your annoyance in the most satisfying way.

            But I don't agree with him. He decided to throw a fit because he came in late for breakfast and couldn't get breakfast. The cutoff has to fall somewhere, otherwise they'd be serving breakfast all day long. Don't like it? Go home and make your own breakfast. It's a free country.

            Its about 'I want what I want, and the world has to give it to me'. Thats the mentality being displayed across multiple scenes. If your were correct about the point of the scene, it wouldn't end with him deciding he didn't want breakfast after all and ordering a burger anyway.

            D-FENS is ultimately just getting the barest, tiniest taste of what later generation had to eat for every meal: the world of endless promise didn't exist, the machine was grinding you down and you were not going to get the rewards you were told you deserved. The difference in retrospect is that his generation *built the machine* so he only has himself to blame, whereas my generation and younger will spend our entire lives paying out of pocket to clean up after a party we didn't even get invited to while my parents generation clings to wealth and power well into dementia rather than let anyone else take control.
            Thats what makes Falling Down look so fricking petty and small in retrospect. He's right in the overall sense, but the specific things he is getting upset about are so fricking miniscule compared the modern problems of never being able to afford a house and a car at the same time even if you do everything right, and the most viable solution to your eternal debt being to wait for your parents to die and pay it off with their inheritance because jobs no longer pay a living wage unless you are inside a very small handful of industries.

    The best TV cartoon ever made is Over the Garden Wall because despite the simple character design, it is the closest American TV animation will ever get to Studio Ghibli. Then the writing and the music are all worthy of animation that good. I have seen nothing else even approach it.

    But that isn't my favorite. My favorite is Gravity Falls because it's the single funniest kid's cartoon I've ever seen. It hits peak-era Simpsons/original run Arrested Development level of wit and pushed out McCracken's Powerpuff Girls in my heart. But as long as OtGW exists, GF isn't the best. It's just the funniest.

      The original couple of seasons were some of the best stuff Adult Swim ever put out and I genuinely struggle to explain why. I've watched it recently though and it's still great. Some combination of the scribble-drawn animation, the zoned-out voice acting, the wild tone shifts multiple times per episode, the stoner wordplay, I don't know. It's a bunch of really weird parts and together they make something great.

      Speaking of wordplay, X:RA is unironically one of the smartest dumb shows ever made.

      If you want something else with a similarly insane energy as TTGL, I'd recommend Symphogear. The first season is rougher and fascinating in a 'what the frick is this show?' sort of way, but from S2 onward it hits its stride and runs on the logic of the writers constantly asking themselves 'whats the coolest thing we can think of to do at this moment in the script?' and just doing that, logic be damned.

      Seconding this. It's just everything I want out of animation; huge variety of settings, tons of action, impeccable atmosphere, brilliant sound design, and extremely cinematic storyboarding. It really uses the medium to its fullest; you never know what kind of shit you'll see in any given episode. Some episodes are so good I will literally watch them multiple times in a row. Jack and the Ultra Robots is arguably more "cinematic" in 22 minutes, in terms of its scope and pacing than most actual movies ever are.

        You either love it or you hate it. SCI is just a sweet cute and comfy show with clever sense of humor and more emotionally mature characters than lots of shows that the internet screams that are mature and for big boys like toh or Amphibia. But it's not a show for everyone and I completely understand the people who don't like it at first sight. It's a miracle it got that many seasons and a proper finale. A little gem of a show from a forgoten time when CN was at least trying.

    My brother is litterally hank, not very smart but we're always together and help eachother and his heart is in the right place. My father is just an hurted man from his past sometimes not a good father but sometimes had his good moments, while with my brother is always on a war about "having a good job" or "studying".
