What is /co/'s opinion on Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends? I remember liking it very much as a child and think about downloading and rewatching it to see if the magic is still there.
>>
/co/'s main point of contention seems to be Bloo, and I won't deny the writers turned him into a huge dick,
so maybe use him as a meter. Once you find him unlikable, stop watching - he won't get any better.

Honestly, there are some genuinely rage-inducing episodes.

> Bendy
> Big Cheese
> Cheese a Go Go
> Duchess of Wails
> Fosters Goes to Europe
> Imposter's
> Little Peas
> Surpise for You

But the good ones make up for the bad ones by a lot, especially the movies. and the art direction is honestly one of my favorites of any CN show.

The show's a solid 3/5 for me. When it's bad it's god awful but when it's good it's wonderful.
>>
It's a decent enough show.

It was pretty boring, and full of unlikable characters.

Most will tell you "hwe watch for Frankie!!1" but in reality she was pretty boring as well. Grey Delisle literally just talking in her default voice into a mic.
>>
The only people who dislike this show are retarded enterbots who think "muh mean-spirited characters" is actually a legitimate complaint. Bloo was an asshole it was part of his character, it was funny.

Bendy was the only 'bad' episode and that was only because people who didn't deserve punishment got punished which naturally goes against most people's sense of justice making an unpleasant experience, but this is something that doesn't happen in the rest of the series and is the worst possible example to use because it's not indicative of the series as a whole.

>>94481547
>>Big Cheese
I don't understand why people dislike this episode. It wasn't even Cheese's fault that they got locked out. Cheese wasn't ill intentioned. Everything that happened was harmless, there was a lot of good gags in the episode and the side story to it was good as well.

>>Cheese a go go
What is even the complaint here?

>>Duchess of Wails
aside from the ending which wasn't that bad this was a really good episode.

>>The rest
These are decent if not great episodes what the fuck is this list? Of any episodes you could choose you pick Little Pea? One of the best in the show?
>>
>>94480897
Started out pretty damn good, then it went downhill almost immediately.
I don't know about most anons, but I blame Lauren Faust for this.

Imho I've seen worse (read: CatDog's cast)

>>94481902

>Cheese a Go Go

Honestly I hate it just because it was part of some stupid CN alien event and they really ramped up Cheeses character.

> Big Cheese / Little Peas

Main thing I hated about Big Cheese was that Herriman was a complete idiot the whole time, and Little Peas took away Frankie's achievement by having some literal who give her the idea to salvage the news piece.

> Duchess

I was just annoyed by the fact that the housemates still trusted Terrence at all after what he did in the pilot episode. He really should've been Duchess' servant at the end, it would've saved it.

> Europe / Surprise

Eurotrish is legitimately great, that's about it. Both episodes were just huge kicks in the balls for Mac, he didnt do anything to deserve that treatment.

> imposters

Honestly I don't hate Goofball. The hate for him is overblown, his Canada jokes are funny. Again Herriman was just being an unreasonable dick.

>>94480897
Bloo was good in the movie, but because they didn't want to have any development of the characters in the show he just evolved into an obnoxious asshole who never learned his lesson and it was almost like Mac was going back for his other friends there more than him.

The show was good besides that.

Jesus Christ. You sure are one weird judge of character.
>>
>>94481961
To be fair, in most cases Mac acted as Bloo's direct enabler - and usually in case of worst of their hijinks.
>>
>>94482926
That and imaginary friends seem to have personalities based on their creator's subconscious. Look at Ed and Nina or Wilt and Jordan.

Mac isn't as straight -laced as he lets on.
>>
>>94482481
Believe me, not every FHFIFfag is a Frankiefag.
I remember those times when the show itself was far from being concluded. Back then Frankiefags were plentiful, but not exactly the main driving force behind audience. If anything, these fantards were the closest FHFIF had to cancer, as they would chimp out whenever writers put their beloved waifu into predicament. Lauren Faust herself was harassed just because she dared to write "Imposters" where Frankie had to put up with all kinds of shit to try and prove that a troublesome imaginary friend is just a guy with clown's nose.

Mac created Bloo as an outlet for a rebellious side against his terrible brother and absent mom, but now that he's around more positive people he starts to mellow out but Bloo still has to act out and rebel- it's his purpose as an imaginary friend

not him but I remember some forum I used to post on where there was one guy who was a gigantic waifufag for frankie. Like, "unironically writing her love letters" tier. Didn't even know what a waifu was at the time since I was barely pushing 13 but I wouldn't be surprised if he had a body pillow of her too.

I think I recall who you meant, then.

The one Frankiefag that stood out was also one of the moderators for this forum.
I remember how he used to pester people who got to view episodes early to give him all sorts of upcoming Frankie trivia just so he could go to sleep with clear conscience.

He was also a fighting atheist - on one occasion forum denizens made a thread about ghosts and overall spirituality in the offtopic board. Just minutes later he showed up and threatened to ban them if they continue to post in that thread, as it supposedly violated some TOS on site remaining ideologically neutral.

The Pilot, the Wilt special, and Destination Imagination were the best episodes. Prove me wrong.

I liked to show, but I really loved the game on CN.com where you made your own imaginary friend and did chores. That game was the shit.

Yeah I can see why /co/ doesn't universally love it like Courage or EEnE but I think it's firmly in the debatable area.

People just get stuck on Bendy I think. Lauren Faust even had to apologize for that one.

I can't listen to Jackie from Star vs. without hearing a significantly less stressed Frankie.
She puts on a completely different voice for Queen Moon though and I like that one.
>>
>>94481547

Antagonistic characters are far more interesting than nice characters

Seemed really dull when compared to CN's other shows of the time
>>
>>94490323

Fair enough. But I felt like the writers could've gave the antagonists in those episodes a much more satisfying comeuppance - or even one, period.

Like in the Europe episode, Mac wasn't being a dick to anyone in the slightest. Madame Foster straight up stole all of the tickets from him for no reason.
>>
>>94480897
Wasn’t fond of how obviously dickish they made Bloo when they could have easily used more Terrance or whatever, but overall, swell series.

Foster's was a show that had some really high highs and some low as fuck lows. The setting, and cast were colorful and rich, but a lack of creativity on the writers' behalf held it back considerably. Bloo, in all of his bemusing dickishness, acted as a hell catalyst more frequently than some of the clear antagonist characters, like Terrance.


All of that being said I really loved:
>Goo's Eps
>The Movies/TV specials
>ORLANDO BLOO
>That one ep where Mac and Bloo get lost in Foster's
>>
>>94485043
This one? I like fem Mac.
>>
>that episode where Wilt was just a giant fucking doormat until he snapped at the very end

Shit hurt since he's my main man but that ending was kinda satisfying at least.

Bloo did nothing wrong, The rest of Foster were just as annoying and they deserve him

>>94498936

Frankie owing her plan to a literal who really irks me. Like they had to take that one victory away from her.

If it's any consolation anon, Jackie and Fluffer are a hilarious ship, the one silver lining in that ep for me.

On the other hand Big Cheese at least has

> I
> FOUND
> A
> CARROT

I really enjoyed the show more than I didn't, but like >>94494610 said, its lows are fucking low.
>>
>>94480897
Even as a kid I would often change the channel whenever Foster's came on, to be honest. I watched the beginning movie about half the first season when it was airing. Maybe I would like it more now, but it'd be at the very bottom of the backlog.
>>
>>94480897
Changed the channel as a kid. Watched it for a bit if there was nothing else. I didn't care for the whole snowflake theme visually and storywise, it didn't help that I was in middle school and basically every awkward preteen persona was condensed into this show. However, I watched the pilot episodes recently and enjoyed them. I was planning on watching the whole series until I watched ep 4 where they go to the mall and I remembered what a little ADD fuck bloo was and lost interest. At best I'd cherry pick episodes with interesting premises.
>>
I dug it.
>>
>>94480897
I actually bought the first season of this show for $2 the other day. Too bad one of the discs are fucked!
>>
Cheese was a mistake. Got too flanderized in the latter part of the series. Some of the early episodes still hold up though.
>>
>>94480897
Loved it to death growing up. I was mostly a Nickelodeon kid until I saw this show on Cartoon Network in early 2005 and I started watching the network more often. True, there were some pretty bad episodes, but the good episodes were amazing. I was very sad when it ended but I was very happy we got around 78 episodes out of this series. Most cartoons don't get that much, so that was great
