Like a pinch on the neck from Mr Spock

Yay, thread! Frankly, I'm a little surprised that this one passed.

Anyway, as I mentioned in the voting thread, the new Korra episodes are a downgrade, animation-wise, from last seasons. I think it's because the budget is a little lower this season, and most importantly, the new episodes are not being directed by Joaquim dos Santos. (He directed every episode last season, along with the best episodes of Justice League). I hope that he's still working on the show.

"There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea."

New thread! Now I just need for there to be new episodes of Gravity Falls so I can have something to discuss here.

Creator Alex Hirsch announced that the next season is likely to premiere in late 2014. There will be Gravity Falls shorts premiering on October 14, 2013 to keep the fans of Gravity Falls satisfied.

Not soon enough. I hope there are a lot of those shorts.

Love is stronger than death and harder than sorrow. Those who practice it are fierce like the light of stars traveling eons to pierce the night.

So this is where I can come to say, "How about them Ventures?".

Excellent. t /Mr. Burns voice

GS: If you had to choose between kicking evil in the head or the behind, which would you choose, and why? Minsc: I'm not sure I understand the question. I have two feet, do I not? You do not take a small plate when the feast of evil welcomes seconds.

Scola- On another site someone mentioned a different animation company is handling the first half of this season of Korra, with the normal company covering the second half.

I agree the animation, particularly the facial expressions, has been notably inferior this season.

What else besides ramen can you scoop? YOU CAN SCOOP THIS WORLD FROM DARKNESS!

I have not noticed any inferiority. Hm.

I haven't either. I guess I am oblivious.
