>>78752947 To be fair though, she had good chemistry with Dan. Having her as a foil to him worked pretty well, as did his interactions with her parents. But yeah, they did rely too heavily on the secret agent stuff.
>>78754038 Usually something that wasn't well received or popular when it came out, but has a fanbase keeping it alive. Or it was popular when it came out, but it's one of those movies that people just don't forget about it and everyone has seen. American Pyscho, Beetlejuice, The Big Lebowski, Rocky Horror, etc.
>>78752947 I would have liked it better if >she wasn't a Sue guaranteed to win every time >she actually had a defined job instead of that retarded combo of espionage/public distraction/asset retention/assassin/hacker/engineer/bomb squad/negotiation that every kid's show seems to think being a "secret agent" is James Bond didn't even wear that many caps. When did that even become a thing? I know I saw it in some earlier kid's shows before this.
>>78754291 >>she wasn't a Sue guaranteed to win every time Dan beat her up in a robo-fight plus it's pretty clear that she's just a few short steps away from becoming just like him (she destroyed New Mexico in one of the first episodes). I agree with you though.
The best part, for me, was Dan, being the form of chaotic evil that he judged to be lawful good. If someone wronged him, it had to be a willful act of spite, even a conspiracy. That, combined with all his other traits that make him a bad person, made it hilarious to see him drag people through shit, on a nonsensical crusade, which he arbitrarily ends.
So when he turns out to be right every time, that kind of ruins it.
I would love to see a Dan Vs the Boss, for example, where the boss in question is legitimately just a hardass trying to keep a professional work environment.
i won't deny that elise did have some chemestry with dan, but that was never explained, in the george washington episode she developed a sort of mother instinct regarding dan, and then on elise parents they are dancing ala footloose
I've only seen a few episodes but I imagine it didn't do well because it's in the strange zone between kids and adult cartoon. There's nothing really bad in it for kids, but it's not explicitly aimed at them, while it's not mature and edgy enough for adults and it's on the same channel as you know what. When it's something like that, it can only get a small audience such as us /co/ losers.
>>78755894 Yeah, the only episode I can recall where Dan was flat-out wrong in his accusations was The Neighbors. I think he thought they were cannibals, but they were actually just friendly, nice people, until Dan got through with them.
>>78757486 It's implied in Family Thanksgiving that Elise and Dan are possibly cousins. Elise's mother comments on how Dan's deviled eggs taste exactly the way that her own mother made them, but took the recipe with her to her grave. Later on Dan states that he stole the deviled egg recipe from his own grandmother on her deathbed. It would also explain why Elise and Dan are so similar, the major difference being that Elise managed to channel her murderous and otherwise sociopathic tendencies into a career, while Dan just lets them fester.
FUN FACT: Elise was almost voiced by Tara Strong. I'm very glad that Paget Brewster won out in the end.
>>78758591 I think this show would've done a whole lot better if it is was on Cartoon Network, It does feel like more of a show for the Regular Show crowed and it would just make more sense for it to be on CN you know?
They probably would've gotten away with a lot more too.
>>78753553 Worst part is, now Discovery is just gonna sit on the rights of the show until the heat death of the universe. If they at least cancel it, then the Facebook page says we get all sorts of goodies, like deleted scenes and pitches for would-be future episodes.
>The episode where Dan wakes up from a nine day nap, and with Chris's and Elise's help builds a Military unit >Turns out Elise betrays him, and he was actually his imposter the entire time >The Real Dan fucked off to get revenge against the United States Government after they stopped paying his welfare checks
The Hub was a joint venture between Discovery and Hasbro. Hasbro got the majority share and got to decide what to do with it.
One of the things they got to do with it was make Dan vs. Apparently, the creators knew the head honcho or someone close enough and got it made.
It's ratings were pretty bad, because the Hub, as a channel, was hard to get. Remember this part.
They kept making new content, along with Aquabats and MLP and Pet Shop and Transformers, because a channel needs content to actually attract people. The Hub actually leveraged MLP's popularity to make commercials for Dan vs., so you can thank Bronies for keeping it on the air as long as possible.
Then Discovery started getting back its shares in the Hub and changing stuff. Lots of shows got the axe and now you are here.
Should I go on about why *insert Hasbro property here* has been cancelled forever?
>>78764246 >Then Discovery started getting back its shares in the Hub and changing stuff. The hub was happy to pawn it off to discovery. Funnily enough, it's tricky to get toy advertisers on a channel that's obviously owned by a toy company itself.
