I was just looking through all the shows' episode listings last night and realized that. 13 episodes aired in one month, then the last is all disppeared? What's the deal with that? LOL
Because they burned through the episodes.
But back to what this topic was about, my little brother let me know it was on when it was halfway done. I didn't even know about this, or I'd have watched it.
It airs again this Saturday at 12pm.
I haven't watched the new show yet. Is it any good? I've heard that the Family Guy art style does it no favors and that it's more "Teen Titans GO!" than it is "What's New, Scooby Doo?" (as in a horrible reboot as opposed to a great one)
There's an on-topic thread about it here. Sometimes I find it to be a combination of Family Guy and Regular Show (in animation for the latter, and it was clearly approved with Regular Show and Gravity Falls viewers in mind). You're either going to put up with, put up with and start to like, or just not watch it period because you hate it. Ironically, one of the producers on Teen Titans Go! is a producer on Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!, but this changes nothing. Sometimes it can be a little off putting, not just in animation, but in humour and characterization (which would mostly come hand in hand). Game of Chicken was a little too Family Guy in some places in my opinion, particularly with most of the supporting characters being voiced by someone who actually works on Family Guy (it also didn't help that it aired as the second episode in the US), but I still liked what went on in the gang.
Nevertheless, I personally don't think this changes the gang so much that it's unwatchable, any less than it may be unwatchable in Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated.
It's not just a 21st century remake like What's New, Scooby-Doo? (that was kind of a gimmick in that show); the gang each have an identity and each character gets their own spotlight, and the other members will get something to do as well. When you look past the stuff, it's not just some parody, but a real attempt at continuing the adventures of the gang you'd see in Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, just a lot more fleshed out and three-dimensional. I think by the end of the first 13 episodes, you'll see that this isn't really any different (and maybe just as good or better).
As a bonus, Fred isn't obssessed with traps, Scooby talks the right amount, Daphne is a lot more interesting (albeit a little quirky), and there's no Fraphne, which I found was making things a lot less watchable for me in the DTVs.
But that's way off topic.Scooby-Doo! Knight Time Terror is a fun half-hour special. I think it would need a little more punch when/if they finally start doing DTVs, but otherwise it was enjoyable.
