Seen the shorts, seen the eps.

The shorts were pretty good. I liked the first few, the others, were okay, not great.

Man, I need to catch up with this show. I watched it when it was first on, basically up until Summerween, and stopped paying attention to it afterward because I figured it was cancelled, what with the strange absence of the show and all. I just now realized they came back from what I assume was a hiatus, and now I've gotta find time to finish Season 1.
Tell me, everyone; Are the further episodes as good as the first few were? I just want to be sure I'm not diving into crap here, you know?
Yea, I thought it was ending too, and yes there are some episodes still worth watching but I personally think that the originals are better.

This can also be used as response to Beamer.

More shorts that came out. I didn't really like them, personally. I liked the Dipper ones better. But these were decent to an extent.

I fell into a YouTube rabbit hole of watching Gravity Fall clips. Such a cute show.

THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT AN ACCIDENT.

I don't know what time this show takes place in but I love the extreme 90s-ness of Soos' editing abilities.

Hahaha I missed the Public Access one. Ducktective is super dramatic. Also I really love "Do you want to drink expired apple juice"? Great job of getting around the censors GF.

So Josh Weinstein will be one of the writers for Season 2, according to Alex's twitter post. Just another reason for me to love this show even more.

A Futurama Writer??

I see big things happening now. Really big things. Maybe they'll even make their way to writing for Rick and Morty, who knows  tongue

We already had Lewis Morton, Josh Weinstein, Eric Horstred, and Mike Rowe writing for Brickleberry Season 2, which I found alot better than the first Season, so who knows. Maybe the writers will spread all across the TV world, slowly making TV a less shitty place for us all. All I can say is, God bless them (also, I'd kill for Lewis Morton or Josh to write for Rick and Morty).

I'll agree it doesn't. But just saying, if they did work on Rick and Morty I willing to bet they'd keep the show as fresh as it was during the first season. They get to keep on using the same vulgar kind of jokes Later Futurama Seasons had, since it kind of fits with Rick and Morty episodes at times. Seeing Josh come in was definitely a surprise.

Also, Brickleberry is still trash BI. Sorry, not trying to offend, but I watched a couple from S1 and a few from S2 and didn't find em any better.

I like the big sendoff we saw at the end of season one. I'm a bit interested on how they're going to tackle all of it, but I hope it doesn't become too much part of the show. Like I would enjoy it if they could balance it out with some big reveal episodes with Bill and stuff, and also have fun episodes like Carpet Diem. I mean the big reveal episodes with Bill and stuff are the highlight of the show, similar to how Fry discovering he's the most important person in the universe reveal happened in Futurama. But I would appreciate it if they balanced it out just enough to get one more season. (Since Alex Hirsch only plans on the show having three seasons and possibly a movie)

From what I heard, Alex isn't even sure if he wants to do a Season 3.

Another Season 2 trailer.

This is most definitely not what I like to hear. Now that Futurama is re-cancelled, Community and Gravity Falls are my two favorite current shows. Except Community has been put on hiatus, pushed to mid-season, downsized (half seasons), nearly cancelled, lost its original creator and executive producer (then regained him), cancelled, and shifted over to Yahoo! Screen. And Alex Hirsch doesn't want to do much more of this show.

Sad. Sad sad sad.

Just out of curiosity... any links to him stating/insinuating this? Or does anybody know why he doesn't want to continue it much longer?

I liked the two premiere episodes. Both very solid entries with a somewhat new feel to the show.

Although I'll admit I did realize a few really poor lines scattered in the eps..... Or is it just me?

Anyways, I liked the eps and can't wait to see what else Season Two has to offer.

I'm thinking Gravity Falls will be the next series I rewatch from the start, leading into Season 2. I look forward to seeing the new stuff.

Short question: Ideally, how many seasons would you like to do?

Quote from: _alexhirsch on 08-16-2013 04:39
Originally I thought three. That may be too many though. Perhaps 2 and a movie. Im more interested in quality than quantity. But I suppose anything can happen

Didn't people stop making ytmnds in like 2006?  Didn't Gravity Falls start in like 2010 or something?  How did you find this?  What sort of wizardry is this?

So far I haven't found Season 2 to be as good as Season 1.

I mean I loved the first two episodes, but the two after that were just kinda mediocre in my opinion. In "The Golf War" it only really focused on giving as much screen time to the putchians as possible. I kinda liked the main plot going on and the resolution of everything, but the rest was just meh.

I also wasn't very fond of "Sock Opra", because I thought it was basically a ratings trap by putting Bill in it. He posed as no real threat, since all he was aiming to do was take Dipper's Journal. Like he wasn't making any deals to kill somebody or ruin somebodies life entirely. All he was going to do was just destroy the third journal (which Stan already copied in Scary-Oke, he'd probably just give Dipper a new one. Cause I don't think Dipper would tell Stan he made a deal with Bill).

Also, something that seems to be a recurring theme this season is Dipper making stupid decisions. I'm not saying dumb as in Homer Simpson dumb or Fry dumb, but I mean he just isn't learn his lessons. He keeps putting himself and others in danger just for the sake of trying to find/solve a mystery. I thought by the second episode he figured he'd take a step back and have a breather before looking for more mysteries. But nah.

I understand that this is a cartoon and everything, but I didn't find Season 1 to have these kinds of problems. And I actually really like the last episode that aired, "Soos and the real girl". It was probably the most plot-focused episode this season, since the rest were either aiming for jokes or going all over the place.

But yeah, just my two cents.

I think Season 2 has been great so far, but I haven't seen Soos and the Real Girl yet.

I see your point about Sock Opera. Bill lost some of his bite in this one. Weak scheme...made him seem like your normal run of the mill villain of the week rather than a big bad.

But, I dunno. Humor has been on point, IMO. Stories have been decent enough. I thought the Wendy/Dipper crush was handled perfectly. Hard for me to complain. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the season.

So far, Season 2 has been fantastic, Soos and the Real Girl probably the best episode so far of the Season.

Would've liked to have seen Bill keep more of his mysterious and thrilling tone from Dreamscapers, but I thought Sock Opera used him well enough, if just to see his amazing character again (him taking Dipper's body and destroying the original journal was fairly big enough for him I thought).

As for Dipper...eh. His character has always been tightly wound about those mysteries, I guess it wasn't the smartest thing for him to get help from Bill, but eh, it doesn't seem to out of it for him to forget those previous episodes to unlock possibly his only chance at figuring out more about the journal writer.

So far the Season has been just as funny as before, the plots have been interesting, there's still hidden things throughout episodes (those FBI guys have showed up a few times, also apparently might be tracking the Mystery Shack), and I look forward to what they'll try to do by the end of the Season.

Okay, so far Season 2's been great. Had a rough start with episodes 3 and 4 but it got back on track after that.

Monday night's episode was amazing, one of the best for sure. It disproved so many fan theories and gave us so many more questions to ask.

Also, the episode paved the way for a reference in a Rick and Morty episode. I put it all in the Spoiler box (just so I don't accidentally spoil anyone who hasn't seen it)



Honestly, I cannot wait to see where they go with this. Disproving as the author paved the way for SO MANY other opportunities. I hope they don't blow it. The Rick and Morty reference is something I definitely did not see coming.

I don't know about you, but this one episode alone has seriously put me on the edge of my seat to see where the series goes. Don't fuck it up, please.
