  1. A Message For Everyone:

    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels (or any show vs any other show) bashing/gushing will be subject to Mod action. Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.

    I like slapstick stuff a lot but wit and sarcasm or whateverit is in this scene makes it so much better

    I can picture Anakin singing Hakuna Matata in that scene.

    Unfortunately, I think most of TCW's attempts at humor have been fairly slapstick.

    Interesting tidbit from Wookieepedia:

    "According to Tartakovsky, Lucasfilm became interested in the series because action figures based on the prequel films were selling less-than-expected."

    Probably why the new series exists too.

    Not everything can be as classy as Anakin eating bugs, or Threepio stripping. =p

    In other news, Tartakovsky has talked a bit about the Samurai Jack movie. Sounds like they're starting to actually talk about making it.. Please oh please, Sony..

    I liked the TV show and hope to get a conclusion to that except the guy who played Aku passed away several years ago. Mako

    I don't have my hopes for that at all, but in the meantime greatly diminishing the quantity of humor attempts is a solid step in the right direction IMO.

    Can't argue with that logic. I like all types of comedy but not everyone does

    IMO That has been happening since Season Three onward...


    True! In the end, it really depends on how a joke/comedy is executed.

    Oh my god I just re-stumbled upon the part in the video where Yoda uses a mindtrick on Captain Typho. Genuinely funny! [face_laugh]

    That's a shame that he feels that way, indeed. Yet another artist Lucas and Co. have royally screwed over.

    It's nice to see someone professional who can speak his mind. And I agree with him of course.
