due to the TDA reunion special premiering this Tuesday (April 6th) in the U.S of A, I thought it would be a good time to give this show a thread.

I want people to talk about this show, not just say Whether You Like It Or Not
OMG Shiny Pidgey!
but I AM talking about it!
OMG Shiny Pidgey!
....... Just, not in a positive way...
A-HYUK!
I love the plethora of Getting Crap Past the Radar moments. That it's aimed toward teens certainly helps.

Well, the Crap/Radar bit still stands.

it's something of a guilty pleasure for me, I spent about 2 week watching it online while procrastinating. I love all the hoyay between the host and Chef. also the schadenfreude.
Oscar Wilde would like to express his witty disdain and offer you some opium.

I couldn't get past the the first couple of episodes. It didn't help that the animation was cringe worthy either.

at least the style is more cartoony than 6teen or stoked.

also, because I'm Australian I can't watch the sneak peek of world tour as seen here so I'm wondering is there's another website that you can look at this?

Transformers 4?!
Loved the first season...not so much about the second season

Definitely a guilty pleasure for me. I think it's something about the combination of the ensemble cast with the eliminations. A fair amount of inconsistent writing, lowbrow humor, and subpar animation, though. (Though I personally don't really hate the animation.)

Second season . . . well, pretty much no one liked it. Sadly, it was only there that Cartoon Network stopped Bowdlerising it. I think you could skip from the first season finale to the second special, should the third season turn out to be good. (Well, you'd need someone to tell you that Gwen and Trent broke up, and maybe that Beth got her braces off.)

I'm inexplicably optimistic about the third season. It's got some characters who still haven't seen much of the spotlight, and the globetrotting bit to me sounds like just enough of a departure to increase variety without feeling like they've completely changed the premise. Of course, they could screw up the former by favoring the regulars again, the new characters are a bit iffy ("The Archvillain" isn't much of a character type), and then . . . there's the whole musical bit. Now, I like a good musical, but, well, I like a good musical. Seems like a very easy thing for them to screw up.

Random fact: The winner of each season was the finalist I didn't want. Combined with the ridiculous amount of screentime they've gotten, I hope the previous winners get out early and stay out. (After TDA, I feel like I can't even trust the writers with the latter.)

Did a quick YouTube search, Trueteal. Does this show up? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t0LQzAYBV3c

I'm among those who loves Island, but hated Action. Nothing all that entertaining ever came out of it. Still, World Tour looks good. Hopefully..

Hidden Madness
I liked Island, but Action...I watched the first two episodes and I was like "lolno." I'm watching World Tour for the Noah.
I can't decide, whether you should live or die. Oh, you'll probably go to heaven, please don't hang your head and cry.

I'm somewhat optimistic about World Tour, especially because the minor characters like Noah or Cody; It will be worthy to at least give it a try

Method in the madness
Noah FTW! I see so much of myself in him.
Life won't stop being cruel. It wouldn't know where to start.

Dudes, Action is the EXACT same as Island! The only difference it's on a film set and the stakes are higher.

only except with Character Derailment and the lack of 7 and a half contestants
There's no Character Derailment. Besides Trent anyway.
