All those communication issues. >Bismuth didn't get to learn about Lapis Peridot defecting when that could have taught her the value of mercy. >If the Rubies weren't misdirected they'd have taken Jasper off-planet before she could get corrupted. >Steven knowing what happened to Pink Diamon would have changd how he handled both encounters.
>>242856 Yea. I'm pleased with the last bit of stuff that he did. I knew there would be a new guy for the Ducktales stuff coming up. Just wondering whom. I don't want them to ape Young in doing it. Find their own voice in Scrooge.
>>242919 I should have played the game before so I could have a better understanding of the slingshot scene. Then I could have been all "wait, where was the triple birds that you tap on after launching to split up?" and then all "ohhhhhh"
This is a thing I had on a "watch later" list for years, after discovering it on the Internet, which I finally got one day (and it was amazing). Apparently a really good composer wrote the score, as well as really quality songs. That was good enough to remember.
So I watched it, and I liked it. Yes it's dated, but in a way I like. It came from a mind of a visual genius and a lover or classical music, and a man very much stuck in the 60s/70s, Mike Jupp. He put together a team and somehow managed to get funding tow make 2 seasons, and lucky enough to get commissioned for 2 more. Oh, and it's a show from Britain.
The premise is that on a planet (just a planet) one half is the Land of Dreams (see: utopia) with little to no conflict and the residents getting pleasant dreams at night from a wizard, and the other side being the Land of Nightmares (clever name) with a population being more-or-less parody of working class british men ruled over by lord of all nightmares. Pretty much every episode the lord of nightmares sends his very british minions to the other side of the planet to steal the Dreamstone, a dream transmitter or close to it, to send everyone constant nightmares. The underlings frequently succeed, but thwarted at the end by various means.

>>242284 The wizard feels VERY british to me. Maybe it's because I consumed enough british media, but I think if americans were writing the show the Dream Maker would talk completely differently, and have different dialogue.
>>241332 Wait, I'm not recommending using a formula. I meant this thread to poke fun at the repetitive nature of most cartoons/comics we enjoy. I didn't mean comics you made yourself (however, that would be fine too).
>>241337 Oh, well that is a very different topic. Well in that case, the general pattern in a show I watch is: 1. Character engadges in cuts but midly unsettling or immature interest. 2. This leads too or is interrupted by an equally strange threat of mundane to catostrophic consequences. 3. In either case, the threat is handled violently while characters use is as a vehichle to discuss mundane things. 4. The threat is handled in spectacular confrontation and the main characters of the episode celebrate victory.
