So I've been late on doing the Thursday CN Roundup because I wrapped up in some projects, but now I can do it....with today's stuff! Bonus! And there's actually less today due to no Adventure Time.
Figures they would do that once I finish my marathon. And there's no Regular Show either, which I didnt' know until just now. Guess we just have one extra thing from today to cover.
Skater Sumo: Sumo takes up skateboarding to impress Chelsea. This episode was pretty good. Sumo episodes tend to good, I've noticed. Whiel this isn't quite his best, it's still very solid. It gets slightly cliché as he tells Clarence to kind of back up due to not being that tough, but they make up by who sweet it ends up being in the end.
And they don't go too far with Sumo's whole girl thing. He can't even really articulate his feelings enough to get all romance-y which totally fits and makes it more dynamic. Also it ends on a “Bleson hates everyone” joke which is always a good way to ends. So yeah, very nice and enjoyable one.
AMAZING WORLD OF GUMBALL:
The Signal: When Gumball expereinces some stuffering, he accidents says things that offend Darwin. Sometimes I think I know exactly what to expect from this show and I even know how it be creative. Then an episode like this happens. The stuttering I mentioned? It's treated like how a TV can stutter due to a weak connection. So it's like Gumball's dialogue is being skipped but for a while Darwin doesn't notice and thinks he's acting out.
The way they do is so insanely strange and hilarious. Hell, it even happens on the title card, setting the stage and almost makking you think your Tv is odd, until you catch on. Of course the stuttering becomes crazier as the episode goes on, giving us some hilarious moments all the way through.
The reason for this happening is weird but in a good way and makes for a really funny ending. This is another example of just how creative this show can get, and how the writers can just do anything and make it funny.
It's a pretty enjoyable and unique one.
WE BARE BEARS:
So I had to finish this on the CN site....because my recording skipped a bit as I guess it went out when this aired. ...Yeah, I think Gumball slipped into this one. Seriously, that's creepy. Anyway...
Feeling unappreciated, Ice Bear leaves his brothers to be the chef of a restaurant This episode was...half and half. The 2nd half was pretty good, but the first half was...a bit bumpy. The bears skip out on dinner once to watch Tv, and Ice Bear decides to flat out leave his brorhters.
He doesn't just get a job, he pretty much leaves them. The opening bit did make me see the others are kind of dickish but for one it's a bit much for them and it's still a lame reason to ditch them overall. And it seems off with how the bears don't realize anything may be their fault after he leaves, and in general everyone just acts a bit too mean.
But once they get their new roommate, it picks up. Dayrl is really likable, and their actions from that point on seem understandable. Granted, they just randomly realize they are bad to Ice Bear and we don't see it hit them and the story is insanely predictable, but the whole 2nd half was incredibly sweet, and even manged to end on a joke that could have been cruel but works due to context.
I'm torn. It ended on a good note but the set up was on the forced side. Guess I'll call it Debatable for now. Subject to change, of course. Plus, it's better than the poler bear media I'm dealing with the blog right now...
Now for the only Saturday offering today.
“Written and Storyboarded by Zeus Cervas-”
Was not expecting Round 3. Let's see how it is.
A boy named Seth must clean his room and learn to be a neater person in order to keep Messy Bessy from making his life a nightmare. This episode was good. Nothing too amazing, but it was amusing and Messy Bessy was awesome. Not even gonna what she is, because that reveal alone is funny.
What they do with the plot is quite crazy and leads to nice moments with Seth learning his lesson. The ending was ...weird but otherwise, an enjoyable. Easily the best Zeus ep of the three he has given us.
So ends another one. Mostly fine set this time. Think I'll see you Thursday for more CN stuff, but I'm too lazy to see if I got stuff before then. We'll see, bye.
