    The 90's stuff is pretty bad in hindsight, but even then you have to kinda respect what they managed to pull off in light of the stupid restrictions placed on them. One story I've heard is that the suits did not want any arching stories in Spider-Man, but the writer managed to sneak some in anyways. And then he apparently got fired when they found out.

    Basically, all things considered, they could have been so much worse.

    Wait, really? That must have been rescinded at some point, the last season was Secret Wars in one big arc. I remember just catching the odd episode being SECRET WARS: CHAPTER XVI or whatever.

    The whole series was big arcs.

    I'm not sure I believe that.

    I loved that cartoon, it was some good spidey action, and they crossed over with the XMen show a lot, too.

    Oh wow, that is some nice art. I really like the alternate (I assume) Wasp art.
    Spoiler:

    Looking forward to the new episode, today. The Doom episode last week was great.

    Have you guys seen the Avengers cartoon? It was surprisingly good, I hope they bring it back.

    The theme song is incredibly nerve-wracking, but otherwise the show is pretty worthwhile.

    You think it's bad, you should hear how they hacked it up and added narration for season 2.

    If he saw the last few episodes of season 1 on Disney XD, he would've seen that opening.

    I've seen only the first season, yeah. But I don't remember bad narration, gonna have to go back to Netflix to see if it's there.

    The narrated opening happened later on in the first season.

    The Green Lantern series is better than I expected it to be. The most recent episode had its ups and downs.
    Spoiler:

    It's growing on me, though. It's a good time to be a fan of comic book shows.

    Yeah I have been trying to tell people that it's not all bad despite the strange animation. I mean a GL show ain't the easiest thing to make and the direction that they have taken works pretty well.

    Very, very interesting rumors from generally-reliable Disney website Blue Sky Disney. There's a lot of good stuff for what Disney's up to, though one paragraph in particular stands out:
    The projects competing for 2014/2015 are the uber-secret film from Don Hall, which will be a marvelously unexpected project if it ever gets the green light, and Nathan Greno and Byron Howard's films which are deep in development. These are projects that are busy working out the story elements so that the films live up to John Lasseter's high Pixar standards. The one that gets the release slot will be the one whose story is deemed ready to actually animate. Not a bad concept, right?

    http://blueskydisney.blogspot.co.uk/search?updated-min=2012-01-01T00:00:00-08:00&updated-max=2013-01-01T00:00:00-08:00&max-results=21

    Note the use of the word "marvelously"... not a stretch to think it'll be a Marvel movie, given that Disney owns them. Big damn deal, we're getting tons of them, right? Well, take a closer look at Don Hall... he's not a live-action guy, he's an animator, and last directed the new Winnie the Pooh movie. Which means...

    Disney could be considering letting their animators loose on an animated Marvel movie.

    Holy crap.

    Also, they're enthusiastic about Wreck-It Ralph:
    Later this year, "Wreck-It Ralph" will debut and show audiences that "Tangled" wasn't a fluke. From the stories I've gotten, it sounds like they really have a heart filled tale that will have everyone seeing this film over and over again. What "Toy Story" did for toys, this does for video games. And the nostalgia for those that grew up on 8-bit games as well as those that love the 90's games are going to be in love with this film.

    Well it's On Demand right now. Don't know if it's a mistake but I'm watching ep 1 on Nick on Demand as I type this.

    I have AT&T U-Verse.

    Nick posted the episode early after it was leaked everywhere last month.

    I'm catching up on Regular Show, and one episode I've watched has a sequence where Mordecai, Rigby, and Benson are all essentially high and stumbling around town before Margaret and Eileen call them a cab to take them home (all while Mississippi Queen plays in the background). I'm constantly surprised by all the implied instances of drug and alcohol use on this cartoon.

    EDIT: Ohmigod, now I'm watching an episode with a montage set to "Holding Out For a Hero".
