The DuckTales reboot is awesome
« on: August 15, 2018, 02:39:44 pm »
Anyone watching this?

It's coming up on the last episode of the first season, and it's been excellent.  I love the art style, the more edgy/angular look, the darker shadow contrast and their very subtle use of 3D objects/landscapes made to look 2D drawn. 

They really defined the different character personalities with the triplets, and have some relationship themes that seem pretty complex for young audiences.  Actually I would say the show is geared towards young adults TBH, similar feeling to Avatar the Last Airbender where they insert some pretty real, dark subject matter juxtaposed with humor and light tones.
The show is just excellent, and has hooked me into the multiple overarching story-lines. It's a full season's worth of episodes, and they're definitely making a season 2. Check it out, I'd love to hear people's thoughts on this show. IMO it's fantastic!

  • Yeah, owning a MAME cab only leads to owning real ones. MAME just isn't good enough. It's a gateway drug.

I've only watched the pilot, but really enjoyed it. I hope they'll put it on Netflix or Hulu. Hulu does have Gravity Falls, which is a Disney XD series (and is one of the best series ever).

Yes I mentioned how good the series was several months ago when the first episode was previewed... all I got were some grumbles from the peanut gallery.

More like silence from the peanut gallery. I just found your thread, 2 replies that don't really talk about the show...

Anyway, are you up to date with the episodes?  The last few have been pretty dark (and awesome!).

I've tried to, but honestly I just haven't had the time.  I think I've only saw about 5 or 6 total, but I liked them all.

The only one of the original I remember was the Alien Nation-style story. Mainly the 'SQUISH SQUASH SQUISH SQUASH' when the squash guard came on the scene. I watched it enough, though. The theme was cute, and the animation and color palette great. Those kinds of things are supposed to be fun, not adult.
