I'm not saying that the article is untruthful, but Cartoon Brew DOES have a number of issues regarding accuracy and truthfulness. They spend a lot of energy on creating controversy for clickbait and even if the article is truthful they have a history of being harmful to whatever parties are being affected by it.

I'm not saying doubt this, for the record. I don't doubt it's truthfulness. But CB is a pretty awful site.

The problem was that the people of the building didn't really get any comeuppance or acknowledge that they did Ralph wrong, Felix just wound up talking them into not being complete dicks to their coworker for mostly unrelated reasons.
While true, they kind of realize that they're hosed without him doing the poo poo job and making their lives workable.

That's all kind of secondary to Ralph realizing that he won't be The Hero in the story, but he was able to help Vanellope realize her potential. That's what the whole "catching a glimpse" before being tossed over is for.

That would make sense for the company to try and keep it under wraps until they can definitively ascertain the validity of the claims with their legal team (such as getting a hold of any evidence and making sure they have something airtight to let him go over). Getting scooped is a problem and the worst part is that, if CB was wrong, they're so small that the blowback would be minimal, so it's all risk for Nick to try and make an early statement and no risk for CB.

I didn't feel it was "generic" at all, it was a fun movie with cute characters that doesn't deserve all these paragraphs of vitriol. That said, having last seen it when it came out, I could barely tell you anything about the plot, and I admittedly forgot it existed until now.



It's not vitriol, I don't hate the movie at all. I think it's just a new high-water mark in what a medicore, sort of pleasant animated children's movie is. It's not like Angry "Uh, racism is good, actually" Birds; it's just a movie that's there.

Hej min vän, hur står det till?


That or Nick's investigation will be influenced by Nick's desire to not have one of their few new successful shows to get tarnished by this kind of scandal. Just because "there's an investigation being done by the company" about this doesn't mean that it's being done in good faith or will ever rock the boat enough to take down the powerful. Just look at the Weinstein and Cosby cases and you can see how these investigations by authorities can be used to protect the abusers rather than the victims. So maybe CB leaking it puts public pressure that would otherwise be absent.

Well, at least the harassment allegations are only about messaging, not even up to dick pics. It may be at the level where just punishment without full dismissal may fix the issue.

I may just be jaded from all the more severe allegations of sexual harassment towards people recently.

Edit: VVV Okay, 12 is pretty well past the line. One incident is something that you can recover past, but...jeez. VVVV

Yeah. Regular Show and Uncle Grandpa ended. Adventure Time's ending in 2018, Gumball's got one season left after the current one and could end in 2018 or 2019 depending on how long they drag it out. They've got a lot of shows lined up for 2018 though: Summer Camp Island, Apple & Onion, Craig of the Creek, and The Heroic Quest of the Valiant Prince Ivandoe.

That's a bummer because Summer Camp Island and Apple & Onion look ghastly and the other two I don't have a lot of faith in. Craig of the Creek might be good, not sure about Ivandoe.

What kind of merch is there? Because if it's clothes and poo poo I bet they probably are making decent cash, however I'd also bet there's more people buying stuff out of nostalgia for the old show than having the slightest bit of interest in the new one.

There's toys in Walmart and Toys R Us (along with Funko Pops), a BUNCH of stuff in Hot Topic (and probably Spencer's), haven't seen anything in Target.

Oh. and LEGO Dimensions recently released toys for their game featuring the new PPG, their world, Mojo Jojo, and I think Octi.

It's from Power Rangers HyperForce, an officially licensed Power Rangers tabletop stream that's beginning on Tuesday on Hyper RPG. It's set 16 years after Time Force and follows a group of students at the Time Force police academy, with Jen as their teacher. In addition to Paul, Ninja Steel's Peter Sudarso is going to be a player, as well as noted voice actress Christina Vee.

There's more information here, including information from the TwitchCon panel earlier tonight.
