Hope Corgi is my favorite comic book character.

blue lanterns are the best lanterns

Am I the only one who is feeling iffy that the Corgi butt was completely misrepresented here?


At one point it looks like break dance, at another point, tap dance :P

About the unanswered dt questions, oh gosh, I feel your pain. On the idea of MFW having a base in Korea, since they control the whole world it would make sense, as well as the fact that int eh pic with Sue, Alfred and the baby Serpent, the building behind them appears to have the MWF logo in it (and the taz statue too). I'd also never thought of Kimmie being adopted, but it makes a lot of sense.

Some uneasy questions left unexplained in Detentionaire

What are you doing? What, what, what are you doing?

Okay, so the whole main plot of Detentionaire has ended, and I am going through an existential crisis. AND, there are still uneasy questions left unanswered that the fandom may unanimously agree upon. This post will contain SPOILERS. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. So, without further ado:

(Hi! I don’t know you, I just track the tag, but you are yelling about all the things that I need to yell about too.) UGH UGH UGH I KNOW SEASON 5 NEEDS TO HAPPEN PLEASE

Read More

OMG YES. BARRAGE. ITS ALMOST AS IF WE LOSE ALL THE INFO ABOUT HIM AS SOON AS HE’S BRAINWASHED BY THE COUNCIL *le sigh* AND NILES PEG TOO (and hi! I track the tag too)

Anyways:

1. I guess you’re right that “half-rate copy” was a red herring. So yeah, glowing through the tattoo makes sense. 

3. I’m sure she must’ve been marked. At one point of the conversation between her and His Eminence, she held her left arm, hinting that she has the mark. She’s been wearing long sleeves all this while, whereas Kimmie hasn’t. So yes, with your explanation, it’s a higher probability that she is “adopted” too.

4. I’m guessing that means the pyramid gives the First Song it’s magical power to brainwash. And yes, the Outkasts were the first guinea pigs for VPV’s brainwashing experiment with the First Song and stuff. 

5. Yeah, it’s disappointing. Especially when Grand wizard of Beth whatshername was there while she isn’t. She’s one of the cutest girls in the show imo - short, chubby, unibrow’d, it’s an unconventional girl stereotype. (Reasons why I like Detentionaire)

7. There could also be reasons for her not knowing the existence of the Pyramid. She may not have known that the First/Prank song may have derived its power from the pyramid, but rather just uses it to toy with the kids at A. Nigma High.

12. I can only guess that the cryptic stuff was from the lizard language that was used with the pyramid. So I’m guessing the book was written by the (ancestors of the?) lizard people.


Some uneasy questions left unexplained in Detentionaire

What are you doing? What, what, what are you doing?

Okay, so the whole main plot of Detentionaire has ended, and I am going through an existential crisis. AND, there are still uneasy questions left unanswered that the fandom may unanimously agree upon. This post will contain SPOILERS. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. So, without further ado:


1. What is the Serpent’s name? Will he reunite with the Pings? WHY THE ACCENT? WHAT’S HIS WHOLE BACKSTORY?

This one is absolutely complicated. We get that they’re trying to give him that mysterious, creepy vibe, but then they’ve been dropping hints about a sense of complexity about the Serpent dude at the later half of season 4. Firstly, his accent. He must’ve grown up with other ninjas/Korean warriors in training (who is probably directed under Cassandra because that’s what she claimed) so they spoke with that weird accent, otherwise Serpent having a foreign accent doesn’t make sense. His tattoo suggests that he’s kidnapped before he was even inked by Alfred/Grandpa Ping, so it does mean that he was taken into Cassandra’s care during his infancy. Maybe Cassandra had a base in Korea? Or, like how Jenny hinted, did he remove his tattoo at a later age?

But then again, it doesn’t explain how Lee Ping has fighting powers when his tattoo glows if the Serpent removed his, right? Or is it the lizard’s mark that activates the power?

Not only that, he says Lee Ping’s a “half-rated clone” - does that suggest that Lee Ping was born out of clone!Sue Ping? Which brings us to question 2

(ALSO WILL HE EVER REUNITE WITH HIS FAMILY? GOD THAT’S THE BLOOD BOILER)

2. When the hell was Sue Ping kidnapped? 

I mean, seriously. There is no hint whatsoever that Sue could be a clone until the radcircles plot was over. (Or maybe I should rewatch season 1 and 2 and then spot the foreshadowing) How much does Alfred know? How could he allow something so ethically wrong to take place in his household and does he even approve of it? (Then again, the company’s rep already hints to ethically questionable experiments ie: brainwashing so he may or may not have so much of a choice)  

3. Is Kimmie adopted?

She doesn’t have a mark. Second last episode of season 4 says that each of the descendants have the mark from the pyramid but she doesn’t. Then again, her mom could’ve afforded a laser surgery to remove it…but it will go against the idea that the mark is permanent. So, Kimmie being adopted seems more plausible.

4. Is Jenny cured from her brainwash?

Her issue went a little under the radar as the pyramid plot developed. 

5. Greta?

Yes, really, what happened to the mathlete? I thought she was dating Holger?

6. Rumplekittykat? 

Banal question, but I miss her.

7. VP Victoria?

She makes a cameo, but I thought that she would’ve had something more. Does she know about the pyramid scheme at all?

8. Biffy’s parents?

We get the hint that Biffy’s parents also work for MWF in the final episode, but it was just left hanging there. 

9. Cliffhanger?

The prank song woke the council member up and we’re all gonna die. 

Can we please have a Season 5 to tie all these up?


IF YOU'RE WATCHING PUSHING DAISIES WE CAN WATCH IT TOGETHER I'VE BEEN MEANING TO SEE IT AND NOW WE CAN FANGIRL OVER SOMETHING TOGETHER YES????

I HAVEN’T WATCHED IT YET, THE POST MADE ME INTERESTED

dottewa:

a-void-reality:

GO WATCH THIS SHOW, HONESTLY IT IS SO AMAZING. 

IF THIS POST CREATES 1 NEW PUSHING DAISIES FAN MY LIFE = MADE. 

Alright let me help out then:

1) Most of the cast is female. In fact only two main characters are male.

2) Both male characters take typically non-masculine hobbies. Emerson Cod knits almost non-stop and makes pop-up books. Ned is literally called “The Pie-Maker” because he bakes homestyle pies from his mother’s method. Both are shown to be very nurturing and even maternal characters. Conversely, the women? A pair of professional travelling show performers that have gritty sexual scandals the way men usually get (see the entire “Chuck’s father” storylines), a beekeeper who is the single most positive and optimistic character imaginable, and a former professional jockey- Three of four pro athletes.

3) You could very easily make the claim Ned is asexual.

4) Yes, the storyline is about romance. But it’s also about the positive side of a love story, and their only drama lies in overcoming their inability to actually share contact.

5) A very good friend of mine recommended this show to me as “Disney for adults.” I told her it was already on my list to watch because “It’s by Bryan Fuller, from Wonderfalls and Dead Like Me.” Bryan Fuller is now most known for “Hannibal.” The same camera methods and bright colours and lighting techniques Hannibal is known for? Perfected in this show, just using a different tone- The same colour methods in reverse, upping the vivid greens and yellows instead of reds and blues, which sells emotion both ways.

7) Probably one of the best examples of a modern day fairy tale possible.

8) Narrated by Jim Dale- The narrator for the HP audio books.

WHAT THE /HELL/ IS DETENTIONAIRE. I do not want to look it up because i have enough shows i have not finished but i just keEP SEEING IT FROM YOU ALL THE TIME

Detentionaire is about a boy named Lee Ping framed for the biggest prank in all high school history. Because all proof points to Lee, he’s put into detention for a full year of school (as well as grounded for a year). But who would want to ruin his life? 

When you first watch the show, there are probably two things that may turn you off. The art style and the stereotypes. The art however, no longer bothers me. In fact, it’s charming and at this point I can’t really see it in any other way. The animation is flash animated (which definitely gets better now that I’m looking at the first episode again), but there are also flashbacks, photos, and background characters in such a lovely pencil style that I would buy an art book for this show in an instant. Here’s some examples:

At first, this show is heavily focused on cliques and stereotypes which could be portrayed as offensive or eye-roll worthy. Wannabe gangster, unnaturally foreign kid, “Glamazons,” big bad bully, cybernetic war hungry general principal etc.

But the magic is that this is to throw the viewer off. The longer you watch the show, the more you realize that all these stereotypes aren’t really there. Almost every character has interesting character development with a secret or important background information. The Glamazon you may have despised in season 1 becomes an enjoyable character you cheer on in season 3. The characters you wanted to shut up and disappear become endearing characters that you can’t imagine the show without. 

And don’t get me started on the mysteries. What really makes this show a wonder to watch is its series continuity. You physically cannot watch it out of order or you’ll miss something. Once you solve a mystery, go back and watch the process again. I can tell you that once you know who the perp is, you can see all their suspicious activity in prior episodes. Questions you put off as the show just being a quirky cartoon in season 1 are brought up seriously in season 4. That’s how far the continuity can go. Everything is important. Everything. 

The other great thing about it is that the longer you watch, the more intense it gets. You may be trying to figure out who radcircles is now but later you’ll be trying to understand the conspiracies under the school. I’d tell you more but I’d have to send you to Room 113b.

Basically, I’ve marathoned this show in the span of two days. Twice.
