It's not quite as random as, say, the Slaad Thread, but yeah that's pretty much it.
FAWTL stands for "Forums Are Way Too Long!!!", a complaint leveled by one IssacX, creator of the original thread, two-time poster, and spawner of the largest six threads to grace the Paizo forums. The first three or four of those threads were used by Gary back in the developing days to stress-test the forum, and were closed when they started breaking things. The fact that the sixth is still going is a monument to both the persistence and ridiculousness of the current participants as well as the stability of the forum at this time.
I never really had much desire to see it in the first place. I'm not really a fan of Angelina Jolie and I'm pretty iffy on Disney sequels that aren't Aladdin. Everything I've heard about the movie since has just increased the reasons to not see it. Especially with it no longer in theaters. If someone puts it on while I happen to be there I won't storm out of the room or anything, but I'm not going to spend money on it without being able to get the theater experience at this point.
Also add my +1 to Emperor's New Groove as well. Boom, baby!
I really liked it because of how much focus it had on non-romantic/sexual love and relationships, something you don't get a lot of out of Disney. Nearly every story focuses heavily on the "happily ever after" and the prince-and-princess partnership; Frozen I really liked because how the romance stories were extremely secondary and the primary focus was on the sisters' relationship.
Heh. I am aware of Goliath Chronicles, though I never actually watched it - for some reason the Disney channel never played 3rd-season stuff while we were watching Gargoyles, both in syndication and in reruns (I guess we missed the third season in syndication somehow? I'd have to look up what year it came out and apathy has set in). I didn't know it existed until a few years back when I blitzed through the entire series and the comics - in fact I'd never actually seen the Season 2 Finale before then, either, so I didn't know about the Gargoyles' existence getting publicly revealed, the destruction of the Clocktower, or any of the other events that lead into Season 3.
Your feelings also mirror mine on South Park. I remember hearing some kids at school quoting it and other than the "You killed Kenny!" gag (which was semi-funny but still annoying for the swearing that accompanied it, and yes those words before and after were considered swearing in my family, and still are) most of it got a "Wow that's stupid/gross/crude/not funny" reaction from me.
Also, also: DUCK TAIL - WOO~OO! (And the Moon Theme~!)
Life is like a hurricane, here in Duckburg~
I wouldn't know, but it's more of a general trope of that kind of family-based sitcom of the late-80s to today in total, rather than speaking specifically.
We went to an awesome local Italian place and chatted for a while over great salad and garlic rolls, and got a couple days' worth of leftovers out of our main courses. Mission accomplished =)
Oh yeah. My dad loves SpongeBob for some reason. I have yet to understand it, but I can't tolerate it much myself.
Also, for the Simpsons, I have a... thing... about protagonists that are too stupid or malevolent (or just jerk-ish, even sans active malice). It's why I never got into the The Simpsons (also, my parents forbade such, and I saw nothing to contradict this), South Park, or Married With Children, for example.
Oh yeah, those series were where the idea of "family sitcom with dumb father, overbearing and/or manipulative mother, and kids running rampant" really got its start, wasn't it? One of my least favorite tropes in TV storytelling, really. =/
Yeah my parents figured that one out really quick. I remember - vaguely - seeing some Simpsons episodes when I was five or six, before my Dad very firmly decided that we weren't going to watch that show.
It was either 1990 or 1991, and I'd only seen a few episodes, and it wasn't Ninja Turtles (which was hands-down my favorite TV show of all time until I was eight or nine, when it stopped showing new stuff and got replaced by Power Rangers, which within a year got replaced by Batman TAS, Amazing Spider-Man, and the X-Men cartoon), so it didn't phase me much to lose it.
It wasn't until I was in junior high that I realized how much of a minority I was in, when nearly everyone around me could quote Simpsons stuff and would talk about certain episodes, and by then I got so sick of the peer overexposure that I didn't want to see it, which mostly still persists to this day.
I dunno what you're talking about. When the TV series got cancelled they released the 3rd-season-to-be as an excellent comic book. It was great, if sadly short.
Oh hey, no disagreement here, I blitzed through Gargoyles a couple years back myself, and Beast Wars while I was at it.
Not much of a talker on the subject, for various reasons, but I fall in that group as well, for what it's worth.
Yeah I had that problem.
Change the capitalized S to a different letter, save it, then change it again to a lowercase s. That'll get around the error.
I'd vote for him!
