Also take my advice and not compare this show to Avatar. You will be laughed at. You will be destroyed. It's not worth it, and above all they're not comparable.
How about you go fuck yourself? I was just going to let this all go until I read that. I am sick of your bullshit both here and in other threads. You don't like the show? Fine. But quit acting like your opinion is the fucking consensus that everyone agrees with like some arrogant asshole, and especially
quit taking a shit on anything you don't like. There's a difference between criticizing and hating, and all I see from you is hate.
I made the comparison to Avatar, and I will keep making those comparisons because they are there. I like this show, a lot, it gave me something to think about. I have seen Avatar, the DCAU, Young Justice, and an ass load of other cartoons generally considered high quality by fans, so I like to believe I can make a good judgement over the quality of an animated show and don't blindly love every fucking thing. This reboot is my favorite, not just favorite cartoon but favorite piece of entertainment in a very long time, and it's probably going to be my favorite for a long time to come. I and others have analyzed the themes and the characters and have found plenty to like about this show. If this was as shitty a show as you claim, I doubt it's trope pages would be as large as they are. Every week on tumblr I see people live-blogging about the show when it airs on Toonami and lamenting about it being canceled. The guys at Toonami clearly think it's good enough to be on their block.
You think I'll get laughed at and destroyed by comparing this to the Sacred Cow
that is Avatar? Well fuck you and any snob who thinks that way. I STILL have yet to see you give an GOOD argument as to why I can't, or why I'm wrong. All I see you post is a bunch of meaningless, unconstructive shit. Is Avatar a better cartoon? Yeah, probably, but it's not incomparable, because clearly I HAVE compared it, here and on Avatar forums. And you are the ONLY person I've ever seen to try and give me shit for making the comparison, which to me just makes you look like an asshole who doesn't know what the hell he's talking about.
And yeah, Lion-O getting a bunch of races working with him is worth a few flying shits because of all the fucking racial tensions built up over centuries, so it's really important to see them working together. The races working together in the original series doesn't mean much if they were always living together peacefully. That's the fucking silver lining in the crashed cloud city, because it's showing that there's still some fucking hope, but I guess you're so busy being a blind hater about everything that you can't even fucking see that
. You don't even bother giving an explanation why you think reboot Lion-O is a terrible messiah, you just go in believing it and that's what you see. And again, you over exaggerate character flaws that Lion-O and Tygra developed out of by the time of the trials. You know how many episodes Lion-O bitches and moans about Cheetara and Tygra? Fucking 2
. Episodes 14, and 15. You could count episode 9, but that was barely anything. And Tygra gets over most of his shit right after 13.
The old Thundercats is still not that good just because it had a great intro. Even compared to other 80s cartoons like G.I. Joe it's writing wasn't as good. I haven't even seen much G.I. Joe and I already know it has much better continuity and character development from the very few episodes I've watched. Lion-O's trials in the original were some of my favorites, but in the end everything more or less goes back to the way it was. For such an important story arc, it didn't feel like much had changed or progressed by the next episode. At least with the reboot when Lion-O completes his trial he has his soul on the line, at least he offers to make an ultimate sacrifice worse than death. And at least by the end of the reboot's season there's some progress with the war effort because now he's got some allies when no one thought that was possible. At least there's some fucking significance behind that and things would have been different if it continued.
None of your shit is EVER going to change my opinion of this show. Whether you fucking like it or not, not everyone shares your shitty hateful opinions, and your shitty opinion isn't a fact no matter how much you bitch about it or try to act smug about it. Even people who don't like something can at least act with some fucking courtesy, of which you seem to have little of. At least when I hate something, like Dm C
, I can at least try to give a good explanation as to WHY. That's one thing that separates good opinions from bad ones, and why I find your opinions terrible.
And a flaw still isn't a fact, a flaw for a fucking TV show is something that you have to personally find negative, as in an opinion, and just because in your opinion it's heavily flawed does not mean others see it as flawed. You can explain WHY you don't like it, but you can't undeniably prove that something MUST be disliked, especially when it comes to something as subjective as fictional entertainment, so it's not a fact. Maybe the show is flawed, but you've proven to me that you're such a blind hater clinging so hard to the fucking nostalgia that nothing can please you and you refuse to see anything positive after already deciding your opinion.
Rant over. Sorry, but that really pissed me off, and I really needed to vent that.
