I, too, have been following Ian JQ's stuff since the RPG World days, and am proud of him for the fact that OK KO exists.

Anybody know what video services this is gonna be on?

I've already bought the first season pass on Google Play. I think it's going to show up everywhere else Cartoon Network's stuff does.

So far it's turned out pretty entertaining.

It's interesting that KO's attempt to use empathy completely failed, and resulted in him discovering that no, Jethro is just a dumb machine that has no feelings and can't be reasoned with. That hardly ever happens to Steven Universe!

After seeing "I Am Rad" I'm prepared to officially call this show "Good" instead of just "I'd like to believe this will be good."

Happy promotions!

I hope that whoever's making these mistakes gets their life back together so they can focus on their work at work.

Generally at any given time one of the major streaming services will be several episodes behind for no immediately apparent reason.

It's interesting that Boxman seems to attack the Plaza specifically to hurt the kids and their friendship, and doesn't seem to care particularly about Mr. Gar.

EDIT: Although it isn't that surprising since Mr. Gar appears to have no friends since he turned his last remaining one into a shopping center.

I also like the way the robots (especially Shannon) seem to have really unclear ages, much the way that KO does.

It would be funny if they never actually reveal that the Shadowy Figure is Professor Venomous, and the two of them both keep appearing separately in different episodes without acknowledging that they're the same guy.

Google Play has put up the last episode but still hasn't put up the three episodes before that.

They've added Season 3 to Google Play with "Plazalympics," but instead of playing that episode, it's just "One Last Score" under the wrong name.

Are streaming services run by somebody's corgi?

Today's episode was pretty neat. Is this season nearly over?

By the reckoning where they sell episodes on streaming services, we're right at the beginning of Season 3.

So far the writing is fairly fun when it wants to be and the brawl aspect is neat, but the pacing is messed up. There's a long sequence before the plot proper starts, and then you have a bunch of random battles thrown in where they feel misplaced. NPCs move to new locations but don't have anything new to say.

I'll see how it holds up over time.

I appreciate that Mr. Logic's character arc is basically "I examined all the data with my rational superbrain and it turns out that being nice is the logical thing."

Wow, that sure was a lot of stuff happening at once.

The real question is, who are we shipping with Professor Venomous now? I guess there's always the ship with Shadowy Figure, but I always thought that was kind of a crack pairing.

Not to mention the whole gun control thing falls apart when you remember that the Bodega already sold other much more directly lethal weapons

None of those things ever seem to actually kill anybody, though.

Is it me, or is season 2 getting even crazier with the animation?

After "Prom Plaza" demonstrated that style will make up for a 12 FPS framerate, they can do whatever they want.

The way they tempted Boxman was also perfect.

"What's that? The president of the universe says all boxes must be replaced by BEST FRIENDS!"

Boxman is such a classic villain being evil for the sake of evil, like Dr. Doom. A lot of newer shows have been going for this newer thing where villains are mostly just gross dudes, but it's fun to see the old-fashioned thing done well.

I also really like KO's delivery of "We are very thoughtful... even to our enemies."

"Go on until you're stopped."

Of the villains we've seen so far, Lord Boxman, Professor Venomous, and Shadowy Figure are the only ones we've seen so far who are villains for the sake of villainy. Everybody else, like Cosma or Billiam Milliam, are basically evil for the money. They look down on Boxman because he's constantly sabotaging his business in order to pursue his obsessive hatred of the kids across the street.

What they don't get is that for Boxman, destroying the Plaza is the point, and having a robot factory is just a means to that end. This is why Venomous respects Boxman, because he sees that Boxman has the same kind of venom in him that he does.

Also he deliberately ruined their fun party and got their yacht blown up just to show how much he doesn't care. Dude's kind of a jerk.

We are all in hiatus hell, and the shows are free.

Occasionally the Crystal Gems manage to break through the prison for a moment and allow us to glimpse true reality instead of merely the shadows on the prison wall.

I'd be curious if the season is finished, and waiting on a server somewhere to be aired, or if it's still in production. I'm guessing it's the former.

When did companies start doing this nonsense rather than 'A new ep every week for the duration of that seasons production run'?

Like I've said before, nobody really knows why they're doing it this way, and that's why everybody is so mad about it.

We've become numbed to being victimized by corporate greed, but behavior that can't be explained by greed is just mystifying and annoying.
