If it's crap ... We'll tell you
I just want Toonami back. but, I'll have to settle for this when it comes out...
Shit. This is pretty cool (minus the Powerpuff shit, that just looks awful) and bringing on Spectacular Spider-man, X-Men and DB's got me pretty excited.
I'm skeptical on whether or not this is gonna last or ever get big enough to get noticed by Cartoon Network, but best of wishes to these guys (or guy if it is indeed just one man doing this).
Did I donate? HELLS YEAH!...
...Well, I would if the donate button stopped bringing me to a "Fatal Failure" page. (Foreshadowing, perhaps?) If it ever gets fixed, I'll shell some ducats for this nostalgia project, and you should, too, if you're in the age range of 16-32!
I was just thinking, literally a few hours ago, about how much I loved Toonami and how I don't even know what is on CN anymore.
Made me think about shit like this;
For a network to grow, it MUST develop it's own talent, it's own shows. CN started by showing a bunch of old shows and anime (some which was already well known). but slowing began to add in some original content (and yeah I agree that Powerpuff Girls is garbage).
But then...they got weird. The animation in the shows added was bizarre and hideous. The stories began to make less and less sense, going more for over-the-top than story building or entertaining. Now one or two shows like this can be ok...but when 70-80% of your content is like this, then it sucks. Worse, they began to show the same show ALL DAY LONG. You do that, then no one cares to get home and watch because hey, it's always on...they can catch it later....
Adult Swim is also at fault here too. By basically becoming the Family Guy channel and dumping half their content for HORRIBLE live-action shows, it's become the hipster's ideal of CN...a sarcastic raspberry at adults that still dare to watch 'kiddy shows'.
CN needs a massive wake-up call.
