How's it going my gumdrops? Last Wednesday morning, I
tried watching Attack on Titan's pilot on Crunchyroll except I dosed off. I stayed awake long enough to watch
the mother of the 2 main characters
be eaten. As I predicted, I don't see myself watching this show. Attack
on Titan looks depressing and is overhyped. It's like Horror gone
Lifetime except for men. Zzzzzzz! NEXT! Of all titles for Swimnami to buy,
they bought Attack on Titan? Seriously? Why not Hellsing? That has more
action and isn't slow paced. I stumbled upon MechaSlash's vlog, while YouTubing some vloggers' thoughts about
Attack on Titan's hype. OMG! This
man had me in stitches from laughing hysterically.
MechaSlash Rants About Attack on Titan
Below this YouTube video, poster sirspookington sarcastically summarized everything I thought, when I watched Attack on Titan last Wednesday.
sirspookington "This is my impression of attack on titan: *cue dramatic music* *cue dramatic screen zoom* *cue dramatic screen effect* *cue yelling* *cue lame ass action scene* *cue awful butt-rock* OMG THIS IS DA BEST ANIME EVAR THEY R HUGE GIANTZ DONT U SEE DA ACTION N YELLIN EREN IS SO KAWAII"
Its pilot's slow pacing and the melodramatics put me to sleep. LOL!
Meanwhile, it's Cartoon Sunday. As I already mentioned last week, I stumbled upon an unaired episode of The Powerpuff Girls. It's called "See Me, Feel Me, Gnomey." "See Me, Feel Me, Gnomey" is from Season 5 Episode 6. It's a Rock Opera spoof of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's Jesus Christ Superstar, along with The Who's 4th album Tommy.
In this episode, The Powerpuff Girls are overwhelmed by the crime in Townsville. Suddenly, Gnomey (an evil gnome in RED) grants them the wish of having Utopian Socialism, in exchange for their superpowers. This results in The Powerpuff Girls relinquishing their powers because they want to live their lives as "normal little girls" their age. After they relinquish their powers, the citizens of Townsville fall under the rule of Communism, which is depicted as being inducted into a cult. Later, Professor Utonium makes The Powerpuff Girls fight for their freedom, sending Gnomey into nonexistence. Without his existence, they recognize the world's need for balance (a.k.a. "Yin and Yang" in Chinese Philosophy).
never watched Jesus Christ Superstar. However, I can understand reasons why the
Rock Opera is controversial. The same applies to The Powerpuff Girls' "See Me, Feel Me, Gnomey" episode. By it being a highly controversial and political episode about Capitalism Vs. Communism, that would
explain why OUR Cartoon Network never aired this episode. Then again, it's like I already said numerous times, The Powerpuff Girls was originally meant for adults. I'm sure most children from 1998 to 2004 didn't comprehend 1/2 the cartoon's adult content and older pop-culture references. As much as I generally hate musicals and politics, I will make an exception for The Powerpuff Girls. It was a Political Superhero Cartoon, that always had hidden messages. The show wasn't extremely preachy like most of today's Hollywood political blowhards. Anyway, here's the unaired and highly controversial episode of The Powerpuff Girls.
