This looks awful and seems like another great example of feminism gone mad.
The one big thing I didn't like about the clip was Scooby's monologue-length speech, but I'm withholding judgement until I watch the episode.
I actually thought the clips look fine. I'm as sensitive as anyone to the political left over stepping their welcome in kids and other shows, but based on these clips I didn't really see that. The feminism on sterioids thing is a legitimate part of the WW story from day one so of course there is an angle there.
Like I said previously ... this series is clearly not geared to adults only so if they get a touch preachy in the full episode it won't surprise me nor bother me as long as it doesn't turn into an eye rolling bore fest. ... I am definitely still excited and looking forward to seeing the full ep. This is one of the more exciting guests on list IMHO so I think there is potential for a strong and funny episode.
Agreed, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this will be a great episode!
I agree and certainly hope for a great episode. Just frustrates me that rather generate new material to give women empowering leading roles they force it into already great shows/films unnecessarily, i.e. Doctor Who, Ghostbusters etc.
One of the episodes I'm most looking forward to and the previews look pretty solid. I don't recognize the voice actress but she sounds heroic enough for the part.
The Scooby monologue is totally a riff on the superhero pep talk that happens any time a comic book hero almost goes to the dark side on just about any of the current superhero shows on the air. Watch pretty much any super hero show (Arrow, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Gotham, etc) and you'll see it trotted out pretty regularly. A total nod to comic book hero fans who are watching for Wonder Woman more than the Scooby component.
I hope this one lives up to the concept. I love that they've given us a version of Wonder Woman who wields a sword and shield. It's the way she plays best in my opinion, even in a comedic setting. Of all the powerful women that have come to us from the comic book page, she's still the first and the greatest.
This was a second comment that accidentally got auto-marked as spam, no idea why. Sorry about that!
I guess most of it isn't relevant anymore but I'll reply to the bits that are. I liked Wonder Woman's voice actress, thought she did an exemplary job. Even though it was probably a nod to the superhero monologues like you said, I wish they wouldn't have had Scooby say the line. It just doesn't fit his character to have long, drawn-out bits of dialogue. I agree about her being the first and greatest of powerful comic book women! :)
The episode looks good but I have just one question
Where did you find the episode
I looked on Kimcartoon, Watchcartoon, etc but couldn’t find it
I don’t think it’s on any website yet. I just found those two clips from the episode on SciFi’s YouTube channel.
It is yet to go up. Kimcartoon, although full of spam, is usually the first place to get the episode and it is usually up by Friday morning in the UK, BST, but episode 3 was not released till episode 4 came out the following week, so by following this logic we may well be waiting till next Friday afraid.
KimCartoon is far too full of spam for me to want to risk using. I think WatchCartoonOnline generally gets it a day or so after KimCartoon so I typically just wait for it to be posted on there.
Episode now up on KimCartoon.
Thanks for the info! Hopefully that means it will be up on WatchCartoonOnline soon as well.
FYI for anyone still reading this, it's up on WatchCartoonOnline now! :)
Since Daphne was showing of her martial arts moves to wonder woman, I was wondering if you could try message the guy of wb kids to make a wb kids video of all the scenes where Daphne does some karate moves.
I would have no idea who that would be who posts the videos, so I'm not sure. I don't really have any connections in WB other than that one marketing person, who is only responsible for writing up the DVD press releases. Sorry!
