He has no idea what he's gotten himself into by asking the internet to recommend him anime

For every good recommendation there's going to be three well-meaning but deeply silly people telling him to watch Elven Piss Psychics

3? Oh, bless your heart, honey. There's no way the ratio isn't at least 30 insane and horrible suggestions for every 1 reasonable suggestion.

SFDebris does internet reviews of shows people pay him to review and most of the anime he's reviewed he clearly doesn't like and you've got to wonder why in the flying gently caress someone would pay a guy who started out as a Star Trek commentator to review them.

I considered going Jojo for sheer "well, if you like confusion..." but it starts so slow. So I feel like if I have to give a caveat, maybe I just shouldn't.

JoJo pretty much opens with the world's biggest rear end in a top hat parkour-flipping out of a carriage and booting a dog 10 feet in the goddamn air

it's slow compared to later parts but JoJo actually frontloads a lot of the nutty poo poo more than you'd think

I really want them to do the Free Willy cartoon. Per Wikipedia:

quote:

Plot
Jesse, age 14, has been adopted by his foster parents, the Greenwoods, and they have moved from Seattle to the Pacific coast. He is given a job at the Misty Island Oceanic Reserve, a local wildlife rescue and research institute where Randolph, his Native American mentor from the movie, now works. In the first episode, Jesse discovers he has the ability to talk to animals and understand their speech; Randolph, a Haida, explains that he is a Truth Talker. This revelation allows for Willy and the other sea creatures featured in the show to have full personalities and more prominent roles in key plot events. Jesse and Randolph work with Mr. Naugle, the head biologist, and Marlene, a research assistant, who are studying Einstein, a dolphin, and Lucille, a seal, teaching them behavioral communication with normal humans.

The main villain of the series, similar in personality to Captain Ahab, is a cyborg called "The Machine" who holds Willy responsible for his loss of an arm and part of his face. It was initially implied that Willy had bitten them off, but a flashback revealed that his submarine was destroyed upon encountering Willy, hurling him into another ship's screw propeller. His appearance recalls Locutus of Borg and the Phantom of the Opera. When not using his new submarine to create environmental havoc, he dons a mask and glove (perhaps a nod to the contributions of Michael Jackson to the films) for disguise and continues to run an oil company under his former identity, Rockland Stone.

Early in the series, The Machine jettisons his ship's skipper, a rather nervous fellow by the name of Captain Frye, revealing he has created, la Frankenstein, four green, slimy, synthetic henchmen called Amphonids from inanimate toxic waste. They mainly function as comic relief, oddly reluctant to carry out instructions to pollute and destroy the environment, preferring to slouch around and entertain themselves, and often making costly and catastrophic errors for The Machine.

Throughout the series, Jesse is constantly fighting plots and schemes hatched by The Machine to destroy Willy, such as releasing deadly parasites and creating genetically modified giant squid predatory to orca, and to despoil the ecosystem, such as wanton spilling of garbage, toxic waste and oil into the sea. Meanwhile, he attempts to influence the ostensibly reasonable industrialist Mr. Stone to adopt environmentally friendly industrial practices through his publicist, P.R. Frickey.

Any of the multiple Siegfried and Roy cartoon series would be good too, if just for the crew's incredulity. This one, which used to be on Hulu, would probably be best, though.

Father of the Pride is also a good choice, it was a tremendously expensive fiasco at the height of Dreamworks' post-Shrek success and also a tragic send-off of S&R considering that it was supposed to be what kept their legacy going after they had to shut down their stage show due to the mauling and was such a critical and ratings flop that they didn't even finish airing it.

I guess if you never saw it, you probably wouldn't guess a bug movie for kids with Woody Allen in it would also include a shockingly violent battle scene.

The main villain also bites it visibly on screen by falling from a high height and slamming headfirst into a large tree root. Antz is oddly brutal.

They haven't done Underworld, have they? I feel like they'd have a field day with that.

Or maybe one of the sequels. I really wish I could call in Blood Wars, but that's still in theaters, so Awakening would have to be the pick since it's also hilarious and stupid.

They talked about them in Dungeons & Dragons. They know what they're trying to be and are fine with that. I think that might be the only time they were brought up.

I still want them to talk about one of those movies because they are hilariously goddamn stupid.

I mean, jesus christ, the latest movie has a scene where two dudes shoot an entire magazine into each other and then yell so hard the bullets spontaneously fly out, and that's not even the dumbest thing that happens in that movie by far

Antz exists almost entirely because when Katzenberg finally left Disney to co-found Dreamworks A Bug's Life had just started production and he wanted to push a rival cartoon ant movie into theaters ahead of it just to spite his previous employers.

A worried pug.


They bring them up in I, Frankenstein too - which was meant to include a cameo from Kate Beckinsale in a stinger scene linking the movies together or some such. And them speculating that Bill Nighy was probably meant to be playing the same character as in the Underworld movies.

I'm excited for them to be watching the sheer inane insanity of Bee Movie.

I broke down and joined patreon for the show. I've been listening to animation damnation. I'm on the robocop cartoon, I'm relived that Andrew Jupin has also seen those four TV movie's, but I got some good(?) news, there was a second cartoon robocop series and a live action TV show. I don't remember much about the show other than Robocop had a holographic sidekick and fought a bloke with really nasty burns to his face.


Here's the intro to the cartoon

Bee Movie's been a comedy fad for a while because of how flat-out loving bizarre the whole vehicle is.
