Qtjinla15I haven't quite caught up with you guys, I'm at the episode when Scooby and Velma have to team up with the Sheriff to solve the mystery and I'm loving the jokes in this episode. Villain profiling, three beautiful daughters who don't speak. Man, as long as jokes like this are apparent I can overlook some flaws.
Honestly, though, it's just confusing. I mean, there's so many directions you could go with Daphne's character—have her feel useless and try to gain some sort of helpful skills! Or Take a Level in Badass gradually to get out of the Distressed Damsel trope!* But nope. She's completely functionless and only around to facilitate romance. Hell, I was hoping that the episodes where she's gone would indicate what she contributes, but instead her absence makes Fred and Velma dumb (for some reason) and this is fixed by adding Hot Dog Water. So if she is contributing something, it's a something that can be done by damn near anyone. Velma...I feel like we're told a lot that she's got a superiority complex, but we're not really shown it except in the Saw homage episode. Mostly she just angsts about how things with Shaggy are going. Oh, and keeps secrets from the rest of the group even after doing that once broke them all up and damn near doomed Crystal Cove. She has skills in research, so at least she's functional, but just barely. It doesn't help that we don't really know why Daphne's into Fred or Velma into Shaggy. It all seems fairly arbitrary.

The gravestone has been stolenYou mean Daphne right? I really don't mind it, especially since it does add more good drama in the climax of the first season and nicely develops Fred at the beginning of the second. This isn't Korra style shipping here at all The only character the writers seem to have forgotten in these past episodes is Shaggy, I swear he talked about more than food last season. Now he's back to just food. Still the best Scooby Doo since Witches Ghost though.

Fixed, thanks. I don't know what you mean by Korra-style shipping. I mean, I've seen the show, and I honestly think the shipping was handled better there, because everyone involved in that aspect of the plot had personalities aside from it (besides maybe Asami.)

Dread LordYou mean Zombie Island, yes? And what I've found interesting is how completely the Velma/Shaggy thing has been dropped this season. We've gotten more fuel for Velma/HDW this year honestly. Also, this last episode in particular was interesting because it felt a lot more like a season one episode: separate mystery, small-but-fun callbacks to the original series, and some seriously crazy stuff happening in the Myth Arc. I've had this discussion before, and won't get into it because this is a Scooby thread, and I'll just say that I disagree with you heartily on this point. Especially since Asami's arc is actually probably the most developed of them all, and revolves at least as much (if not more) around her father.

The gravestone has been stolenNo, I mean Witches Ghost the last one that fleshed out the characters at all, ...and it had The Hex Girls Zombie Island came before that one. Korra ended with Makorra just suddenly coming back, Korra being clueless as to what she's done (because of the plot), and an ambiguous break-up. First they had an episode that seemingly got it over with, ....and then it just came back again and took over. Asami's best part had diddly-squat to do with the shipping This show foreshadowed the tearing relationship between Velma/Shaggy pretty nicely so that it was believable, ...and the reveal when Daphne gets kidnapped and Fred, ...realizes. It had some bumps, but it was in little amounts, ...no episode hijacking at all. BTW anyone notice that Lin Bei Fong voiced an old lady, or that one of the culprits was not only Kevin Michael Richardson but had The Joker laugh?

Playing it coolYeah. Mindy Sterling voices Dean Fenk, Kevin Michael voiced the guy that took care of the Burlington mansion and Hammill did the Baby villain from the beginning of season 2.
DOES NOT APPROVESo if I can ask, where can I watch this, then? The site I'm using only has up to episode eight of the second season.
Everything make Heavy look faa-a-a-a—aaat D:
Highway HossAs I mentioned before, iTunes has all the SD:MI eps in High Definition. It costs money, but well worth it. Also since the producers are bringing in other Hanna Barbera characters, I would like to see "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kids" make an appearance; they are an interesting take on the classic Scooby Doo formula.
Trucker,Geek,Brony,overgrown kid (literally)
I willing to bet that it's Pericles and not Scooby that needs to be taken out as a result of the past of the first Mystery Inc. Scooby has proven a desire to keep the gang together.
I absolutely adored the frank millerised version of blue falcon. The fact that Dynamutt is his same old wacky self just adds to the absurdity of it... of course the recent cameos are slightly tainted by the adult swim versions...especially the tom and tubs appearance as soon as one of their fathers is mentioned as Michael Murphey I literally screamed "the nut from sealab had a kid?!?" Yes I am aware Michael Murphey was the original version and HANK murphey was the parody character but it just popped into my head

Moreover, the Johnny Quest characters being around is a bit difficult for me because I'm relatively certain Race is dead, Jonny's a drug addict and Hadji runs a call center.

PAPER!You know, talking about the Venture Bros, the Mystery Inc. gang should meet the Groovy Gang and Dr. Orpheus.
Haters gonna hate, apologists gonna make apologies up.

Here's my ideas for the second half of Second Season. These are just guesses for it —

cout << endl;I do like the art style of this one though, so I'm hoping at least that would stay. That, and whoever thought of the name of Coolsville should be shot dead in the head.
Signatures are for lamers.
icon by implodingoracleI kinda wish the show was an extension of the first DTV movies. Those were awesome and IMO the best parts of the series alongside Mystery Inc and 13 Ghosts.
Just A Humble Sonic FanScooby Doo always mostly been a lighthearted series, I see no problem with switching things up a bit.
Can we please get Mad Writter off this thread? He/she doesn't even like this show and is obviously trolling with these asinine episode summaries. And I do not know who "Professor Prometheus" is. I only know of Professor Pericles.

Ridiculous CreatureSo yeah, I caught up with this show a while ago, and the second season so far is fantastic. Definately one of my favorie cartoons ever. When does this show start back up again?
MWTPL: It's a free country and I will go into any thread go to that I like to. I like to guess future episodes. And we just misspelled the mean bird's name on the last one. Dezmo: I really don't know but the sooner the better, so "Warner Bros." can go back to the Lighter and Softer style of a "Scooby-Doo" show.

Indeed.Anyone have ANY idea whats going on? :(
Despite my screen-name, ranting to you about One Piece is not my top priority. I've got Homestuck for that.
The gravestone has been stolenWhy? Why would you want Lighter and Softer, that's all we've ever had until now (sans the first two animated movies) and with the exception of the first series, it's always been unmemorable, weird, or terrible. This is the first time the characters really got fleshed out, and you want to get rid of that?
Wo ist die Bibliothek?
Don't worry, he doesn't have to worry. The current arc's only planned for two seasons, and the way CN's treating the show I don't doubt it'll disappear swiftly afterwards.
The gravestone has been stolenLet's just hope it goes to it's planned end and this wasn't it. That'd be even worse the fate of The Spectacular Spiderman Glad to see it have a natural end instead of being zombied out into a Long Runner, cancelled when ratings fall.
