    Huh, so apparently tonight is not the end of primal, there are 5 more episodes still in production.

    Which makes sense, seeing as how this last one introduced some uhh, new elements, and didn’t even remotely feel like an ending.

    That's cool. I haven't seen the 5th one yet, but everything so far has been pretty enjoyable. Lots of visual feasting to be had. The 4th one introduced some great creature design.

    Adult Swim seems to be doing a thing where they put out small batches of episodes instead of an entire season run. They're also just doing five episodes of Rick and Morty next month.

    Apparently this is because a long time producer died and they have decided to delay the season and just release what's done so far

    I can't find anything about a Rick and Morty season delay.

    That is good news. Because if that was the way they were planning on ending the show...
    If I ever had the chance to meet Genndy Tartakovsky, there may have been words.

    Though, honestly, I'm not sure how I feel about the show.
    I mean, it's got some amazing artistic style and animation. The choice to go non-lingual with it is intriguing. And the sound track is enthralling.

    On the other hand, I don't know how much more caveman murder party I really feel the need to watch.
    Like, the first half of the last episode is probably in my top 10 things I've ever watched on TV. It was amazingly vibrant, peaceful and hopeful. Watching Fang chase butterflies may be my favorite part of the series.
    But... Then the last half happened and it's all murder monkeys and slaughter apes and more blood and organs splashing across the screen than a half dozen Mortal Kombat tournaments.
    And then it ends on that...

    Well
    aside from the ambiguity over whether fang survives, the ape man cult/ruined arena raises a lot of questions about the setting. I don’t think the apes built that, how can there be a ruined civilization in prehistory, unless maybe this isn’t prehistory at all? What sort of magic do the ape men possess? Are there more of them? Are their gods physical beings that bestow them powers?

    Or is is it more just a metaphor about how civilization, ritualized violence, violence for the purpose of entertainment or even revenge perverts the natural order of killing only to survive?

    I know the show is meant to be short stories, like Conan or Tarzan, but it would be weird if they didn’t follow up on some of this.

    Yeah, I hope the world-building continues. That last episode was rich with it.
    What's with that black ooze? Twist: it connects up with the Aliens/Prometheus universe, whoaaaa...

    Well, the setting is clearly not meant to be actual prehistory, if for no other reason than the whole thing with primates running around alongside dinosaurs. And in terms of actual human history, physically modern humans have existed for over a hundred thousand years; given different circumstances, that's enough time to climb up to modern civilization, collapse into total stone age, and climb back up again like ten times over. If you had humans far enough back to be kicking around with dinosaurs, that's a long-ass time to develop and lose civilizations.

    This setting definitely seems to be something like Conan the Barbarian, where the whole world is wild and savage and always has been. Any dead civilization might have been dead for a day or a year or ten thousand years, but nobody keeps track of any of it so there's just ruins sometimes. Thus far, Spear seems to be the most "advanced" thinking being on the planet but there doesn't seem to be any others of his kind running around.

    But who knows? The whole thing could swivel towards some crazy-ass post-apocalyptic Heavy Metal kinda setting where we end up with Spear and Fang bashing wasteland riders driving around on hover motorcycles wielding laser knives.

    As far that ooze
    given that it's a Tartakovsky show I'd say it's way more likely the ooze is some kind of proto-Aku goop, after it gets split off from the cosmic bad guy from Samurai Jack but before it eventually "grows" into Aku. This setting being the same as Samurai Jack is something I could buy, since that also had loads of crazy critters. And the Aku goop was around for a looooong time before Aku formed from it.

    Great stuff, but now I'm wondering how many of the foreign animation staff now have PTSD from working on episode five.

    Yes but if animation is used to buffet and fill libraries of original content to attract us we all win. Look at all the extra we are getting from Disney+ and DC. Many of these project would probably have never been greenlit.

    If a movement doesn't have someone that can sit down opposite those in a position of power and strike a deal, how can that movement achieve success?

    Hazbin Hotel pilot episode is finally out.



    Pretty solid. Alastor steals the show as expected, but a little disappointed that there wasn't really much to it aside from connecting and concluding stuff above and beyond what they've already teased in the promos. Still really hope it gets picked up by someone for a full series.

    Avatar: The Last Airbender head writer and Dragon Prince co-creator Aaron Ehasz is facing allegations of misogynistic behavior after several former employees went public with their experiences.

    I am familiar with Danika from her tenure at Waypoint so this just adds some context to her leaving Dragon Prince seemingly out of the blue.
