Let's review the possible outcomes.
One, it gets one season, TOPS, and then is cancelled because Fox has a hard time committing to anything.
Two, it's shit, but it goes on forever, because once Fox DOES commit to something, they run it into the ground.
It is. It really feels like a show about nothing. It's not bad but it's not good either. It just exists and has gone on for way too long. It's still better than their current Sunday Lineup, but that does not say much.
It's a very polarizing show. Either you love the family dynamic, maybe you HAD a family like it growing up, or it's all Greek to you.
It just feels a lot more genuine than Simpsons or Family Guy at this point, which, granted, doesn't mean much.
AS only produces edgy nonsense or Fox sitcom knockoffs that appeals to stoners with a shoestring budget. FX on the other hand is very loose when it comes to censors and standards and could be a great way to air whatever show you'd like. Too bad no one ever considers that option.
Honestly I hope its good, but won't the lack of constraints from S&P and the broad comedy type of shows Fox airs only work against Hirsch? He's very talented but I don't know, Fox would not have been my first choice. Does this mean he's forming his own Animation Company now though like Gracie Films?
It fell for the same tropes that most "adult" cartoons fall into. And it's pretty sad the the creator was obviously trying to shill his gay creation on here. Thank god no one actually fell for it.
Anyone else boycotting this emasculated white knight faggot's shit forever? Fuck his female characters with no accountability. And the whole emasculated male protagonist shit? To hell with Hirsch the hack.
>AS only produces edgy nonsense or Fox sitcom knockoffs that appeals to stoners with a shoestring budget.
I can see Fox easily pushing Alex in a direction to make things "edgier" and to cut down on serial storytelling.
Part of me wants this show to bomb so that he suffers for cutting Gravity Falls short because he got bored of it.
True. Although they could turn those descendants shorts into an actual show. Capitalize on their popularity. Hell, they've already got the models made
>Do people still watch the Simpsons
I mean, its still going on. Either people still watch it, or Fox just doesn't have the guts to pull the plug because it (and Family Guy) prints money for them
Moral Orel did not get interesting until the two finales and season 3. Also they are both still edgy as fuck with lame parodies that appeals to the stoner crowd. The west is truly stagnated when it comes to animation.
>coming in 2016 by Alex Hirsch, its
>with John Oliver as Donald Trump, Kristen Schaal as Melania Knauss-Trump, Seth Green as Donald Jr, and Louis CK as their wise cracking pet dog Spinee
>stay tuned afterward for Cops, followed by Cops
Alex is a Jewish manlet hack that will make women invulnerable and men scum for being happy. Also I bet the art will not be very appealing because "adult" cartoons inherently must have ugly art for some reason.
>Part of me wants this show to bomb so that he suffers for cutting Gravity Falls short because he got bored of it.
I mean, isn't it sort of a good thing that he abandoned it when he got bored of it? Would you rather let it die a slow, drawn out death where it gradually turns into a soulless, effortless piece of shit?
They will be horrible for the exact opposite reason as Disney.
Either they won't challenge him at all and the series will stagnate, or, more likely, they'll push him to make everything edgier.
Don't expect any somber or touching moments that aren't interrupted by blood gushing from somewhere.
>MUH THREE SEASONS
I actually read the relevant post, and he said it would be either two seasons and a movie, OR three seasons. We got a movie by definition in the last episode, and 19 other episodes. Since there isn't a law that says a season has to be twenty episodes, I'd say he more or less fulfiled what he said. Furthermore, he hardly has total control over Disney scheduling, so you can't tell for sure what he wanted was what he got.
And Season 2B delivered some of the best episodes in the whole series.
It's going to full of insufferable liberal douche humor from Alex "The 2nd Amendment was intended for flintlocks" Hirsch, I'll pass.
See The Simpsons, The Boondocks, The X-files, Twin Peaks, Star Trek TOC, King of the Hill, Futurama, and yes Even Family Guy. Go out with a Bang
I'm more annoyed he wants to work with Fox when their track record is making good shows crap and cancelling great shows. Yes he loves the Simpsons but they Wrecked the Simpsons. Doing your a show on Fox because you were inspired by the Simpsons is like watching the Original Star Wars, being inspired by it, seeing the prequels, and then asking George Lucas to direct your new script
He never wanted to make kids' TV, he just got a call from Disney asking for a pitch and he quickly came up with something and to his surprise it got greenlit for a pilot.
He's always said his next project would be for adults because he's been constantly at odds with Disney about getting away with more mature content in GF and it's driven him nuts.
Yes, but then it will probably be highly political which regardless if you are liberal or conservative, is always annoying. Cartoons should be an escape from all that crap not more of it
Most likely Fox called him asking for a pitch, and they probably offer a better budget for a pilot than [AS], and if they pass he can take it somewhere else. Plus if the show is actually successful, creating, writing, and acting a network show that gets enough episodes to go to syndication is a very surefire way to become a multimillionaire.
No, there's money in sitcoms that get reran constantly. Which very well can be animated.
You get residuals every time they play it. Jerry Seinfeld is a billionaire for this reason.
From what I've gathered, most of the politically oriented humour on GF was the behest of other writers. Considering that Animaniacs literally had a whole segment which ended with Rita instructing the viewers to vote Democrat, Hirsch has definitely kept it safe.
Fox doesn't really give much of a shit about their animated stuff. There could be an interracial gay wedding between two strong independent feminists and they wouldn't even care.
I don't know if Twin Peaks would count because that only ran for...two seasons, was it?
and what (might've) ruined it was that the network forced the writers to reveal the killer earlier than intended, forcing them to come up with shit at the last second to replace what they (probably) had plans. But who knows.
>mfw the Fox show is about a pair of twin siblings who fuck each other
That's kind of oversimplifying things because most comedy writers are libertarians - professional comedy is a libertarian field by nature. And it's actually almost funny that Seth claims to be a diehard leftist Democrat Obama hugger while his shows contain the most horrible racist/sexist/homophobic jokes ever.
>Alex Hirsch is making a FOX series
>Justin Roiland is making a FOX series
Now they can finally have that shared universe they've always wanted.
I don't recall the name, but I think it was set in some barren ice region, and oil was involved. The bad guy was a parody of then Texan Governor Dubya, and he was really indecisive. The pair get on the boat to leave, with Rita says to the camera "Next time, I'm voting Democrat," while Runt says some stupid shit along the lines of "I want to reduce the deficit, but not cut the doggie biscuit budget."
When he posted those pictures he hadn't actually pitched it to the network, and was basically just gauging response or trying to build hype or something. My guess is the idea came about in the writers room with Mike as "hey, how can we get a show on Fox" for these reasons: >>78738152
and I kind of doubt it's going to happen, especially since Rick and Morty seems pretty important to Justin.
Golan the Insatiable was half-good, which is actually fantastic for Fox.
What's the point of putting political jokes in children's cartoons? They're not old enough to vote, all the jokes would be as subtle as a brick flying through a window (although that's a problem that most political jokes in general suffer from), and it would fly right over their heads
It at least makes some sense in adult-oriented cartoons as the target demographic would at least be old enough to vote, but there's no point at putting them in kids cartoons.
Kids are indoctrinated immediately in schools now. Did you not know that? I remember I was in line to vote against obammy, I forget which time, and these cockass teachers were just laughing to each other like "so do you have any holdouts in your class?" "just one. her parents have clearly brainwashed her, but i'll get that fixed by and by"
I told them how much they disgusted me, reminded them how it's illegal to talk politics in line for a polling place, and went to the back of the line
You probably just attended a shit school. Although they can be biased depending on the area.
I recall an economics teacher at my old high school calling Obama "the most liberal president the country has ever had".
Hell, I remember my middle school social studies teacher once went on a rant about how Obama was one of the greatest Presidents we ever had. I was 12 and I knew she was stepping over the line as a teacher.
Oh God who in their right mind would give a well known habitual fuck up with more baggage then the Titanic his own show again after seeing what he put Disney through? You know what this is great. let him crash and burn. I can't wait to see him fail miserably and prove he was a one hit wonder and a total HACK
Welcome to the modern world.
When you take a step back it's kind of hilarious. You have all these kids who see something they don't like, turn around, and run like fuck, never pausing to think things through, until they've circled around right back to where they started. Except they're completely convinced they're as far away as they possibly could be.
I predict that it will be too weird for mainstream audiences that this show will be aired to in primetime and too adult for the younger audiences who might want to watch because of the Gravity Falls connection.
As a Right-winger, you are out of your mind.
Christfags and /pol/acks are every bit as censor-happy when it conforms to their agendas. They appeal to emotion, conform to safe spaces, and act like fucking retards.
You can hate left wing SJWs and still hate Right Wing SJWs (*Universal background checks on guns=confiscation**Any homosexual characters in a show is "pandering"**Christians are persecuted in America*)
>Fuck politics, fuck the rich, fuck the poor, you're all just playing into a cycle of nonsense. Nothing will change and we'll all be dead in a few short years.
Well, why don't you speed up the process and kill urself, m8?
I hope Golan gets renewed. The world needs more Dylan.
Anyway, I wouldn't read too much into this news. Maxwell Atoms was supposed to create a show for Fox after Billy and Mandy, and that never happened. Likewise, Fox looked into a Destroy All Humans! TV series with King of the Hill producer Jim Dauterive but that never came to be.
God the dnd episode was such a wasted concept. Easily worst episode of the series for me. Felt like it was written by someone who read cool dnd stories rather than someone who has ever played the game.
These >>78745034 >>78745345 for DD&MD. I'll give you Wierdmageddon part 1 wasn't as bad as the others, but it was still rushed as fuck. Calling it one of the best in the series is a massive insult to god tier episodes like NMM and NWHS.
Ah yes, because nothing says logical thinking like nihilism, amirite guys?
Wait, what if both Justin and Alex are working on the same thing. I mean, Hirsch has said that he is only helping to develop a series and recently both of them seem to have a good friendship.
You actually think it will make it to the third episode before cancellation?
2 possible reasons:
1) He wants to work on things other than Rick & Morty. This'll allow him to do something fresh & different (or at least, I hope it turns out to be so, if something does come out of it)
>The show hasn't even started and already /pol/ is peeking.
The general idea with you retards seems to be
>if you aren't leftist like me, you're a moron and I won't listen to you.
>if you aren't conservative like me, you're a moron and I won't listen to you.
>start a show with a thousand branching different plot threads
>get Disney to beg for more episodes
>end show at your second season
>move to FOX and get your next show canceled in less than one season
>[Alex in a board room full of Fox Executives pitching his new show.
>Alex: "It's Family Guy... FOR KIDS!"
>FOX: "WE LOVE IT! HERE'S 50 MILLION DOLLARS!"
Goddamn Boondock's final season was just a trainwreck, show lost its rudder without Aaron McGruder, guy is a great writer.
Black Jesus is actually pretty good live action Boondocks, comfy tier television
Seth really got tired of FG a long time ago and he told the writers to make it as edgy and offensive as possible so that Fox would either cancel it or people would get disgusted and stop watching, unfortunately it backfired since shock humor only made 13 year olds and white trash watch it more.
>mfw Alex will be the new Seth Macfarlane
>mfw he will release cartoon after cartoon for fox
>mfw his cartoons will slowly takeover Animation Domination
>mfw all 1001 of his "adult "cartoons with the same style will get 12 seasons and one TV movie each
>mfw long after he's dead, it will still be only become reruns of his shows on fox
with new episodes of The Simpsons every sunday
Oh, then you're largely correct. The majority of our populace has either grown complacent or is willfully uneducated, because of the nature of our country it isn't necessary to be informed or to even work. Unless our government eventually takes away our bread and circuses we won't have anything like a revolt.
A couple dozen people in a US militia did recently take over a federal wildlife refuge in oregon because they felt the govt overstepped their boundaries, though, so that's something
I don't get it. I've been reading this thread and I don't get it. What does fox see in alex's work that would make them say "Hey, you would do really well on fox sundays!"
Is this just another golan gamble that will end in a 6 episode run?
>censorship is alright if it pisses off the SJWs
I thought they went hand and hand, SJW usually want everything censored.
this is the fucking problem with politics, nobody will compromise and maybe think for once, hey the other person has a good point.
and that's why we're doomed to extinction.
you might as well say "tomorrow the world will end!" everyday when you wake up.
Humanity has been in far far darker times than now and 1st world politics will cause no mass extinction, if anything they have stagnated the cycle.
Brave New World will happen to society before Mad Max will.
Not here in the states.
>But proves how the states censors & politics can influence (bully) any country now.
you had me till the jews merchant face.
