BATDeRp Consept Arhtwurk - Awwsome Carecter! by JakeAnderson733

IT'S A WORK OF ART, IT IS SO AMAZING I WANT TO CUM ALL OVER IT IT'S SO LOVELY. I WANT TO FUCK IT SO HARD 40 TIMES EVERY NIGHT. IT'S SO ...

Activity


Because I'm bored and stuff, I've decided to start doing network roundups. When a channel has at least 2 new eps of shows on, I'll do a roundup with my thoughts on the episodes. Yes, i got the idea from mlpvscapson's CN round up things. I won't do CN for that reason, but i will do the other networks i follow. This will only cover shows i watch and you'll figure which ones they are. And in this network’s case, there’s a show I’m just watching to make scorecards, not cuz I like it or anything.

I may skip some days but I’ll try to do them whenever I can. I’ll mostly do Disney XD, (both Monday animated and Wednesday live action), Disney Channel (Friday and Sunday), and of course, Nick. Mostly just the Sunday animated stuff cuz I don’t watch/care about Bella, or Henry Danger or whatever. At least, not at the moment.

So let’s do our first one, which is…oh hey, a Nick one!

 

BREADWINNERS:

Remember what I just said about the “watching not cvuz I like it” stuff? Yeah, this what I meant./ Though I’m a bit confused on the scorecard front, cuz Wikipedia says Season 2 has started…but Season 1 hasn’t ended. Are they pulling a spongebob? Cuz Modern spongebob does that a lot, where one season starts before the previous ends. Robot Arms/PB&J (as well as last weeks and today’s are Season 1 for example, while Adventures in Big Bun Sittin/CrumbSkulls were Season 2.

Either way, let’s look at today’s episode.

Birds of a Feather:

I think this is the Season 1 finale, because it is episode 20, and Sanjay’s S1 finale was ep 20, and it’s also a 22 minute episode. Yep, double the…beadwinner-ness once again. Is it as a tolerable as Ngiht of the Living bread? Let’s see.

 

While cornered in the bread mines by a monster, our…heroes pass the time by recalling the story of how they first meet.

Yep, it’s a flashback episode. And it’s…alright. Sadly it’s not quite as nice as it should have been, but all things considered it’s not that bad. There are things I like, and things that are a bit off.

The off things are the show’s usual trademarks. As a flashback episode, it has to show certain things so we have crappy puns and short crappy songs. There’s less of this once the story starts, but it’s still all there.

Speaking of the story, it’s fairly basic. The tropes used in “how our heroes met” stories are all here, and while some work, it does feel a bit too calcuted sometimes. We flash back to when SwaySway first become a Breadwinner, which involves a few nice moments with his parents, and see how a bunch of the characters first meet him and stuff.

Ooinksi’s cameo was kind of amusing, but it’s weird how Ketta is still kind of friends with them after how she leaves here. Doesn’t help that it involves a lame joke.

Apparently T-Midi (revealed to be Talonus Midi) was a dick when he first met him. If this is to make you know what less bad, it didn’t work. Same thing happened with Ramamboo.

The ending to the story is kind of nice, cuz we see that Buhdeuce was really dedicated to doing this. It’s nice to see a positive portal of him for once.

So overall it was just okay. It had nice moments but it still has the weaknesses of the show, though at least the characters aren’t huge dicks in this one.

Not much else to say really, so yeah, it’s one of the most okay episodes, I supposed and a fitting way to end Season 1, if this is the end.

Let’s move on to a show on the end of the quality scale

 

 

HARVEY BEAKS:

I told you this show had potential to be great. Every episode since the first has been really really good, and a couple were even great. Someone did a 1001 for “The Negatives of Being positively charged” so that’s why I didn’t. Overall, this show is certainly a bright spot so far. Let’s see how today’s episodes panned out.

 

Harvey’s First Scar:

“Written by Shane Houghton, Zeus Cervas, Colin Heck”

“Zeus Cervas”

What the heck is going on? Clarence, Star, now this?! I suppose this one makes more sense, since it’s Nick, but it’s so weird. His Clarence was good, and both (yes, both, it looks he’s a permeant writer) Star’s were very good, so let’s see how this goes.

Basically, Harvey wants a Scar because cool people have scars, so he has his friends help him get his own scar. This episode is pretty good, but the middle part was a bit rocky.

It has Fee and Foo trying to give Harvey a scar...but they go a bit too far with it. Seriously, with the messed up things they try, you’d think they were trying to kill him!

And when they try again even after he says he doesn’t want a scar anymore, it’s …yeah. HOWEVER, the ending makes up for it. There’s a nice moment, and a good moral. It’s a bit predictable, but overall it works.

Yeah figured Zeus would write the ep I have an issue with, but the ending does make up for it, and to be fair, they did Pinkie promise to give him a scar.

So yeah, not much to say. It’s another nice episode, even with a few minor issues.

A Tail of Les Squirrels:

A group of French Squirrels kidnap Foo, so Harvey and friends must get him back.

 

Now this one was really cool. There were a lot of decent jokes and the concept was amusing and well executed. It even managed to have a mature moment (which was lampshaded) at the end.

Speaking of the ending, the very ending was sort of off but it was alos kind of cool. I won’t spoil it but it did remind me of a better execution version of my most disliked part of a meh dud episode I covered a little bit ago. But again, no spoilers if you care about that stuff.

So yeah, it’s just a fun episode, and one of the more entertaining ones so far. Overall, this was a nice pair of episodes.

 

Now for the ever improving overhated one:

 

SANJAY AND CRAIG:

 

 

 

D.I.N.K:

The duo’s beloved family car is sold and replaced with a high tech new car that naturally causes problems.

This one started a bit awkward, but it ended up being pretty good. There were a couple fart jokes early but once the plot kicked in, it got better. The car is pretty much a mobile smart house, and they manage to make Dink pretty sympathetic.

The ending is very nice and the plot is decent, if a bit predictable. So yeah, it started off rocky but in the end it’s a good one with a very nice ending. And heck, the slightly gross parts are pretty tame, plus it gives us an amazing line:

“Craig, eat your farts”

Context is for wimps.

 

 

Dangerous Debbie:

Craig tries to save an eel he falls in love with at a Sushi Restaurant.

 

This one was decent, I guess. There were some decent gags involving Craig being in love, and how they try to disguise Debbie, and all that. They even lampshaded how Craig’s crappy human disguise works on people.

It was a bit predictable but there were some sweet moments. There were far too many close ups of Debbie though. Ew. It was a bit odd at times but the ending saved it, as well as a few decent jokes here and there.

 

And that’s all I got. Decent group tonight, and I will see you tomorrow for Disney Xd. Bye.

Breadwinners Season 1 Scorecard by Spongey444
Breadwinners Season 1 Scorecard
(incomplete because the season is still airing)

Well, here we are. I said I was watching the show, and here's a scorecard to prove. Why did i do this? I guess i wanted to find more gems, and i did, but it also found crap. This show is still mediocre, and having watched the whole thing, I'll say it did kind of grow on me, but it also got kind of tiring after awhile. If i hear one more duck pun..

Now let me explain the ratings system. Okay mostly means that it has some sort of good in it, but not enough to be Good, but also not enough bad to be truly Meh.  Some are close to good (Raging Mole, Switcheroo, beach day of horror), some are close to Meh/bad (Pondgea's got talent, Insane in the crane game, ) and some were just in the middle (Space Ducks,  Oonski the Gratfeul)., Likewise,. some Meh's were close to bad. (Stank Breath, Love Loaf, and especially Poltergoose).

Before you bitch there being only 3 bad episodes, compared to 5 good ones, remember that most of the mehs are still not good at all, just not really worthy of my anger. If you combined Meh and bad, you get 14 which is much bigger. Though it is more complicated with the okay episodes, which are smack in the middle between meh and good a lot of the time. The point, there are mroe episodes i did not enjoy than ones i did. Happy?

Now, for the debatable ones..

BROCRASTINATION: The two are kind of unlikable, shirking responsibilities and stuff, but it also almost has them learn a lesson about not doing so or your dirty dishes will turn into an evil monster. It also some decent gags here and there.

FOWL FUED: It's  a ripoff of Naughty Nautical Neighbors, which means the good and bad parts of that concept are here There are some nice moments with them becoming friends again, but it also then being kind of unlikable and annoying.

FOOD FIGHT CLUB: This one is more complicated. It's due to the plot itself (It's okay) but cuz of one part: T-Midi. In this episode, he runs an underground food fight club, and he forces our heroes to fight each other, even though in the context of the episode, they did nothing to deserve torment. Yeah, it's almost T-Midi's Little Yellow book...but after FBTN i don't blame him for doing this, but as i said, they didn't do anything bad in htis episode.  I'm ...conflicted. He was also kind of a dick in Lil' Loafie but that was less weirder than this.

WORST EPISODE: From Bad to Nurse

"BEST" EPISODES: Yeasterday, Night of the Living Bread (Starts off with an actually good song. That's all i gotta say), Tunnel of Fear. (Creepy in a good way and is one of the few times the duo are worth rooting for)


So yeah, that's all i got. I'll update this when new episodes come out. But when Season 1 ends, I think I'll stop watching the show unless i am told about an especially good/bad one. And yes, you may bitch about me putting Love Loaf as Meh below.

UPDATE: Changed format a bit, among other minor things.

UPDATE: Added recent episodes, and it looks like this is the end of the season so..

Dan Vs Season 2 Scorecard by Spongey444
Dan Vs Season 2 Scorecard
Heads up: The Telemarketer is actually between Stupidity and Reality TV. I accidentally skipped it when making this and had to slap it at the end. Whoops.

Anyway, I thought Season 2 was just as good as Season 1, hitting new highs, even if it hit a first low. The main difference is that it veered from the typical fomrula. Instead of Dan just straight up going against something, there will be bit more of a normal story to it, even if it sticks to the fomrula sometimes. Notable examples of being different include Parents, The Wedding, Reality TV, Family Thanksgiving. Of course it also stuck to it with stuff like Wild West Town. While that could make episodes less memorable, it's great that they do something different instead of just do the same stuff over and over again.

My only problem is that it's not as funny as Season 1, but it's still very good. While Elise got a bigger role, it was never a problem and she didn't detract from episodes, or anything like that. Even if her stuff is a bit pointless, it will usually add something in some way. The only time was she was pointless was Wild West town and the only time she bugged me was Dancing.

As for the Telemarketer, it is the ending. Everything before that is great, being really creepy and interesting, but it's just weird to have Dan lose when he in this case, he didn't deserve it. However, it's more of a minor thing and i wasn't sure if it drags the ep down enough or not. Hence, debatable.

Now for the top 10.

10. The Mall Santa

9. The Gym

8. The Monster Under the Bed

7. The Dinosaur

6. The Catburgular

5. Studpity

4. Parents

3. Chris

2. The Wedding

1. The Family Thankgiving

All i have to say is, your episodes must be really good in my eyes to outdo one that bashes Reality TV.


So yeah, there you go. Now to watch Season 3, which shouldn't take too long since it's only 13 episodes.

Dan Vs Season 3 Scorecard by Spongey444
Dan Vs Season 3 Scorecard
And we're done., Yes, I didn't do 1001's on some of the great ones, but I wanted to do the important ones. With Season 2 i did too many at once, and i wanted to avoid that. If you want me to do them ,i will...but someone already did Vegetables so i won't do it.

This Season 3 was great as always. The short-ness didn't stop it from getting back into the swing of things while still switching things up. While Season 1 is my personal favorite for being the most unexpected and funny, this was still a nice way to end the Season. I mean, there were more great ones than good ones, and aside from maybe The Mummy, all the good ones came close to great in some way.

They really ramped up the Elise stuff in this season, as they hated each other more than usually, which came to a head in The Mechanic and The ski trip, and to a lesser extent, the family cruise. I think it would work better if the season was longer but it still worked pretty well, and they even did the "Elise tries to keep Dan from ruining something with her and chris" thing better than Dancing. Cuz she was still, you know, human.

Anyway, here';s my top 5:

5. The DMV

4. The Common Cold
3. Anger Management

2. Family cruise

1. Summer Camp


That's all i got. Overall, still an awesome show and while it sucks that it's gone, it at least ended on a high note.
