Not much I can add. I enjoyed the episode too. Headgehog is right about the “A” plot, but that seems to have become the norm for this show. As he pointed out, the biggest yuks are in the ripping of current events, attitudes, ect. I also enjoy the subtle looks into the creators likes/interests – the Wayne Kramer reference in this episode, and the severed head “scoring” through the Mayan style goal in Mutilation Ball. Bits and pieces of this show continue to hint at it’s unlimited potential but I’m still waiting for that next stellar episode like MBall. Sad to see it’s beginning to look like they’re not going to get the chance. Anybody hear any more on it’s future?
I liked this one too. It could have been funnier but it wasn’t boring. Maybe the animation was different. I found myself being impressed by it without even having to think about what must have been put into it. The space battle scene and the crash on the planet in particular.
Have they always had Bob with a new one liner at the beginning of each show or has that just been over the last couple of episodes?
Kinda sad to see only a few responses to this so far. I hope this isn’t a reflection of apathy on the topic. And if fans are not compelled to write here, are they gonna send the emails? I would hate to see this show get cancelled. Does anyone think an online petition would get a good response? Combined with the emails it could be enough to send it over the top.I would be willing to put up a couple of bucks for it’s creation and promotion though I don’t have a lot of time to be actively involved. How about it html programmers?
I expected some Florida 2000 election jokes.
Yeah me too. I’m always up for seeing Boy George slammed. Perhaps the intent was there but they couldn’t come up with anything funny enough. In fact, that’s my beef with the whole episode. It only made me laugh a couple of times. Maybe I’ll like it more the second time around.
Agreed. Not a knee-slapper but smiles all the way through. An enjoyable episode.
It’s definitely the weakest episode so far. Loved the jury selection though! I actually think the timing was good . If you’ve got a weak episode or two, best to pepper ’em out over the mid season.1st April 2004 at 2:05 am in reply to: Relationship? Sci Fi, animators and Chuck and Chris! #70584
Well it doesn’t seem to have worked here. The Pilot episode was terrific but there have been a couple of the new series episodes which I think have been better.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not knockin the series. It’s the best thing I’ve seen on the tube since Lexx. Just a general observation.31st March 2004 at 4:50 am in reply to: Relationship? Sci Fi, animators and Chuck and Chris! #70572
What often happens is that studios will buy the rights and characters to a show, but rarely hire the original creators to write the show. I think its partly to avoid potential conflicts during decision making; using different writers gives the producer more control over the content.
Yeah, if the creators are working on the project then they continue as if it belongs to them. But if the corporation buys all the rights and brings in there own staff, these people are of the mindset that they are working on someone else’s project and are easier to control. And as lexxrobotech pointed out, this tends to ruin the outcome. Money has a way of destroying art.
Ahh, now someone’s thinking! Just how do you penetrate something that has no depth?!
Any male here who says they wouldn’t is either a liar or they are deluding themselves. Well I suppose they could be a eunuch! What would certainly make it easier would be to think of the woman who’s voice is behind the character. Now that’s one spicy meatball!!!
