  • You know at this point I'm just going to say the Wonder Park series is probably shelved and would never see the light of day.

    The movie was greenlit at a time when Paramount and Nick had different management and by the time the movie was released and bombed the previous execs weren't there anymore.

    Jimmy Neutron & Barnyard made about the same money, but they cost 1/4-1/2, respectively, as much as Wonder Park.
    This was dead on arrival.

    i think they gonna put wonder park the series on paramount plus with no one noticing
    CN real was like the equivalent of seeing your longtime best friend or family member becoming a heroin junkie and almost dying from it.
    then Adventure Time and Regular Show were like the rehab CN really needed.

    Which makes people looking back the popular cousin(CCF/Fridays)fondly just because how good it was and left Fried Dynamite faded into obscurity.

    Oh speaking of Fried Dynamite, what do you think of that block? Because I know it received equal amount of hate as CNReal does.(2)

    it felt like them trying to attract Nickelodeon and Disney's audience

    And failed miserably.

    This is why CN should never get rid of Fridays and tried to gear towards the Nick and Disney crowd because of stuff like this (and CN Real) blows up all over their face.
    I wonder if modern kids will be freaked out if their parents or grandparents show them Gumby.

    I remember watching Gumby when I was a kid and I wasn't freaked out. I just couldn't believe how old it looked.
    i think Covid might've destroyed my interest in the future of live action movies. It's just sad seeing movies left and right being delayed or dumped to streaming platforms.
    At least some indie stuff is being released and my home state announced its going to open theaters back up next week. But in this day and age it's like the motto is expect the worst. This decade or the first half is going to be rough.
    sooooooo....

    anyone use Quibi or even care about it?

    honestly for me i don't think making a streaming service for short form series (5-10 minutes) would work

    Same. They're basically asking to pay for content you'd easily find for free elsewhere.

    they should turn it into a pluto tv/tabi/crackle like service instead
    I wonder what it would it been like if The Angry Video Game Nerd was a show on G4 during 2007-2008 when the network was becoming Spike TV 2.0

    It would have had to be extremely toned down, and I suspect he would have been pressured to review "newer" games as well.

    Ok here's something i never knew until now. Nickelodeon owns the Winx Club since 2010. I know nothing about it but i don't think I've heard anyone in America watched or cared about that. Was it just for international rights or something? Did it even do well in America?

    Nickelodeon doesn't own Winx Club anymore, though ViacomCBS does own a 30% stake in Rainbow

    I didn't think it would last as long as it did from a Saturday morning block or two let alone get a live-action adaptation. It basically popularized if not create a genre that still exists to this day.

    I wish that show would air on Boomerang as a 4Kids version.
    I'm surprised at this point The CW (since they're co-owned by WB) hasn't made an edgy live action version of any of the Hanna Barbera cartoons like Scooby Doo or Space Ghost
    i honestly don't think the new G4 would succeed because what's the point of making a video game based tv network at a time when anyone can make and upload video game reviews or related content on Youtube or stream on Twitch?

    I think there's something to be said for actual broadcast studios (like what X-Play and Attack of the Show had). It makes viewers feel more....legitimate. I mean, at the end of the day, aren't people like Markiplier just....broadcasting out of their basements?

    I’ll admit that I haven’t looked back on any of this in years, but I remember G4 being awkward and weird in a faux hip way. Like Spike TV or MTV or anyone that was not adult swim during the 00s.

    Hmm, I would've also added on Adult Swim in the 2000's as being "ackward and weird in a faux hip way".
    I honestly think Nintendo should've pulled a Disney and make an older audience label like Touchstone for hard T and M rated games to attract more of a wider audience. Especially in the Wii/Wii U era.

    But then i doubt those games released under the label would be commercially successful since gamers and that time would rather stick with Playstation or Xbox
    Man it's really sad that SYFY in the past 5 years or so is just wasted potential that keeps on cancelling everything and simply just a network without a clear vision. For some reason they want to compete with Adult Swim by making adult animated shows.

    SyFy has always been like this. Since at least canceling Farscape. It's a science fiction network run by executives who hate science fiction.

    After Vagrant Queen's cancellation I doubt if Syfy's gonna keep new shows alive.

    Syfy should just DIY (aka die)

new ollie's pack of the week of December 14th
And now for the first matchup of round 1. It's Alternate Universe Christmas Tales. The matchup is between the My Little Pony episode "A Hearth's Warming Tail" to the Sesame Street special "Once Upon A Sesame Street Christmas".

Ready for December and 2021 to come!
The Minions Holiday Special was barely a holiday special; just a clip show with some new holiday themed animation sprinkled in. At least they showcased one new Christmas short film. EDIT: Apparently the Christmas film wasn't new either; it was released last year.
