Why do Pinky and the Brain look so out of place when the Animaniacs look amazing?

Also, I'm 3/4 there. Can't wait to pirate it and feel disappointed that most jokes have been said before and better. I did enjoy the sell out joke immensely.

Star Trek Discovery...

As fan of TNG and the original series, I'm scratching my head to bleeding as to what you'd like in that show.

I am not a trekkie, besides watching and enjoying the original series I found Discovery avery refreshing show

You should watch Deep Space 9. Start from season 2 (first season is boring). It's the best trek show by far because it's about politics, religion, imperialism, terrorism, etc.

I wasn't a big fan of DS9 for how it was to me a kind of space soap, but still it was way more clever and appealing sci-fi than any of the Kurzman-era Star Treks.

Wtf.... It'w produced like an average Marvel movie with abusive use of shaky cams, supermassive CGI battles and characters are all about emotions and half-baked "science".

Red Letter Media are best expressing everything that's wrong with this series.

Who cares if they're vegan? Liberal political statements don't make it for intelligent characters. Like being a women or Black ain't what made Janeway or Sisko memorable or appealing characters.

But representation matters. If appeals to liberal sensitivities you can't demand more from a mainstream Hollywood product.

If the text is poor, etc, even so is more than the average garbage aired now

Representation is typical mainstream politics, that's totally related to the Spectacle.

I was thinking of The Boys and even Cobra Kai (lol), as examples of better-written, more intelligent shows. They both are brilliant comedies that got a critical edge up against the current mass society, without falling in the same liberal appeal garbage à la Disney and fucking Alex Kurzman. Like that angle in The Boys of how a bisexual supe is being tokenized by male studio execs.. that's a barely-hidden slap at Hollywood. These two series are totally not stuff major studios would pull off, as this level of satire is way beyond their exec rule books.

I think I know what is your point. I felt the same about Orange is the new black, like it is a wonderful show and focused on character building

What's not to like? They're 900 years in the future after the federation has collapsed and have to bring the federation back, and the new character is a empathic vegan who can talk to animals and travels everywhere with his cat. It's fucking awesome.

Also there's a good case to be made that the collapse of the federation after the Burn has brought anarchy to the galaxy, because without warp travel, every planet is isolated and can develop without the state / federation's control. The Discovery is trying to bring socialism back to an anarchist world.

And Book is a pirate who liberates endangered species from poachers. It's the most anarchist trek ever. I got serious Farscape vibes from that premier.

Sometimes I have the feeling I am living in some sort of surreal dystopia.

And this seems to have changed the target audience, looks niice
