>>244 >>290 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OGKlwhQQR8o I watched wrestling almost religiously from 1995 - 2005. Every single day I wish the "F" would come back. We need some fucking attitude in wrestling. I still attempt to get back into it once and a while every few years but I just can't stick with it. I might watch the royal rumble but I just don't know. >>291 LOL! Pretty much this.
>>294 Agreed. I think the Attitude Era was awesome, but it was also one of those "perfect storm" moments where its success had a lot to do with both the culture of the time and the fact that WWF was up against WCW (and ECW to a lesser extent) Honestly, the lack of serious competition is the main reason why WWE went to shit. Hopefully AEW will light a fire under Vince's ass and we can see a better era for wrestling. Missing file >>1619

>>295 I'm behind a few weeks with AEW. So I'm not sure what's been currently going on. But it was losing traction and actually losing against NXT. So it's not looking good unless things have changed. But yeah, the "Monday Night Wars" as well as ECW as exactly the reasoning behind the major pushes being done during the time. Plus just the culture being vastly different. People weren't "triggered" and offended over every little thing during the time. People knew how to enjoy something and life wasn't so politicized. I can tell you though since AEW came out WWE has been "more edgy" in terms of more recent years. Still nothing great but a small improvement I guess is better than none at all. The sad reality remains though, we will never see another attitude era.
>>291 >waiter, there is a fly in my shit and vomit salad
>>299 LOL! When's the last time you watched wrestling?

I just got the first nine seasons of The Simpsons on DVD. Feels good, man. I'm looking forward to re-watching some episodes. I remember even really liking the first season and its roughness from the other times I've seen it, while most people seem to think it's pretty inferior to the following seasons. It might not be as funny as those ones, but the plots I find really memorable. I also love how loose and rough around the edges the animation is. It's just too bad the dead horse of a show didn't stop getting beaten a long time ago. They should have treated it with some dignity and respect and let it rest in peace.
>>867 >most people seem to think it's pretty inferior to the following seasons Maybe back then, but nowadays with nostalgiafagging at an all time high and simpsonswave being the latest trend, people are appreciating the old seasons more and more.
>>868 Despite that, most people don't seem to consider the first season part of the "Golden Age." I'm not sure I would either, but I do consider it the most charming and personally nostalgic (although I only started watching the show close to two decades after it started airing). What I have noticed is that there seems to be a renewed interest in the Mike Scully seasons, likely due to how much the show has continued to decline since he stopped as the showrunner. I've heard it said that the memes and quotes the show almost always come from the peak years of the show, but even the post-classic Scully era spawned a few, like the "damned Scots" speech and the "stupid sexy Flanders" scene. Even the full-on zombie years had some of its own though, so that might not be saying much.
>>867 I find the first season to be the best in terms of substance. >>868 It's not out of nostalgia, it's unanimously held that in the 8th-10th seasons it went to shit.
>>870 >I find the first season to be the best in terms of substance. I definitely appreciate how grounded in reality it feels in comparison to a lot of the later stuff. The same goes for Beavis and Butt-head as a show compared to how outlandish the plot of the movie was. It completely lost that slice-of-life feeling of two idiot teenagers trying to stave off boredom that made me love it so much. That's not to say either of those were bad, but I don't think I like the more outlandish style as much. >It's not out of nostalgia, it's unanimously held that in the 8th-10th seasons it went to shit. I've seen some people say that "Behind the Laughter" should have been the last episode. From what I remember of watching those later seasons back in high school, I found them funny enough but far more cartoonish in nature. Some of it felt like they were trying too hard to ride the coattails of shows like Family Guy and South Park though, as opposed to the balance between realism and cartoon humor that "Golden Age" Simpsons had. But even in the classic Simpsons seasons cracks would occasionally show. "Deep Space Homer" is a fondly remembered episode from way back in season five, but the basic premise feels a lot like a forerunner of the over-the-top zaniness the Simpsons would later get up to. "Lisa the Vegetarian" was season seven, and that featured one of the poorly integrated celebrity appearances the show would later become known for. To get Paul and Linda McCartney on board, the show had to agree to keep Lisa as a vegetarian from then on. They should have just stopped sucking up to the McCartneys and told them to take a hike,

Puréed essence of the mid-2000s.
>>1137 That was one of the only Adult Swim shows I ever got into, around the same time I was just getting into metal. I'll always remember the "food library" bit. I might have to revisit the show sometime.
I've found this a while ago when I was trying to familiarize myself with Singapore. I think I will use this thread to post similar things whenever I come across them. https://yewtu.be/watch?v=Kstf6FXBpAY
>>1315 I just got done watching that. It was pretty good.
>>1137 Good shit. I also watched Aqua Teen Hunger Force. >>871 The episodes where Lisa became a vegetarian and Buddhist should have been the signs of the obnoxious preacher she would become in later seasons. Her ruining the pig BBQ pissed me off even as a kid considering the pig was already dead. Amazing how that inspired similar failed vegan "protests" today. The same thing happened in Family Guy with Brian, although his change was far more drastic. Somehow the writers for Brian thought it was smart to make him an atheist despite him also having met Jesus. I'm not sure if he was actually religious in the early seasons, but he was definitely far less of an asshole.
>>1405 >The episodes where Lisa became a vegetarian and Buddhist should have been the signs of the obnoxious preacher she would become in later seasons. Her ruining the pig BBQ pissed me off even as a kid considering the pig was already dead. Amazing how that inspired similar failed vegan "protests" today. Absolutely. She was a complete bitch even then.
The first season of Rugrats is actually very funny.
>>1405 >Somehow the writers for Brian thought it was smart to make him an atheist despite him also having met Jesus South Park is also weird like that, with various characters witnessing other deities' gods performing miracles and retaining their religions. It's not meant to be consistent, those shows are episodic with their beliefs played for laughs.

>27 posts >still no CN City
>>1449 That was the time Cartoon Network started circling the drain for me.
>>1433 Rugrats has a lot more jokes/references aimed at adults than I realized, especially if you pay attention to the adults' conversations between scenes with the babies. I'll probably re-watch the first couple seasons at some point to see what else I missed. https://yewtu.be/watch?v=1vs55Z7t7bk https://yewtu.be/watch?v=j-MA9jBfMT8 https://yewtu.be/watch?v=wv5Eb26VAIQ

>>1449 >31 posts >still no Boomerang https://yewtu.be/watch?v=_3X-76GO8vE >>1460 Thanks, I forgot what those were called. Yogi Bear Jam is actually better than I remembered. Who did the music for Boomerang/Cartoon Network? Even for commercials and bumpers a lot of the sound production or songs they made were really good.
>>1463 I used to wake up early on Saturday mornings and watch the Boomerang stuff when it would come on Cartoon Network, like Herculoids and the original Space Ghost series. I wanted the actual channel as a kid but never got it.
>>1464 I had it for a few years with Time Warner, but later they dropped it along with a bunch of other channels my parents watched. I still watched it on occasion at my aunt and uncle's house when I visited because they paid for a bunch of extra channels. My uncle was surprised kids were interested in the classic Hanna Barbera shows he grew up watching, and actually enjoyed re-watching them with us when he had time. Too bad it's used now as a dumping ground for relatively recent CN shows. Even some early 2000s shows they haven't aired in years would fit better considering they're close to 20 years old now. If millenials still watched TV they could even re-use classic bumpers like CN City or Powerhouse for nostalgia. Boomerang is a re-run network anyway. Nostalgia is its main purpose.

My uncle was surprised kids were interested in the classic Hanna Barbera shows he grew up watching, and actually enjoyed re-watching them with us when he had time. I was just as interested in older shows as newer ones as a kid, maybe even more. One of my favorite shows on Cartoon Network was ToonHeads, but they stopped airing that not that long after I first discovered it. I guess I was interested in history even before I thought of it as history Nowadays I'm even more of a grognard than I was then. >Too bad it's used now as a dumping ground for relatively recent CN shows.

Channels like MeTV do the same thing too from what I've heard. I haven't been a regular TV viewer in a long time, but it kind of defeats the whole point to me to have newer stuff on a channel dedicated to classic boomer TV shows. I miss the experience of sitting down and watching TV, but there's no going back for me after discovering torrents as a teenager. What sucks is that a lot of the torrents that interest me are completely dead.
>>1466 >I miss the experience of sitting down and watching TV, but there's no going back for me after discovering torrents as a teenager. Pretty much. Even though TV is nice to just sit down and watch something, it's hard to beat being able to look up anything you want and not have to sit through commercials. Even if Boomerang didn't have commercials, you still had to wait for the exact hour or half-hour for a show to air. >MeTV I forgot about it. It has a mix of classic shows and cartoons, but doesn't have the full cartoon catalog Boomerang does. It's also has commercials which I don't have the patience to sit through anymore.
>>1466 >I was just as interested in older shows as newer ones as a kid Same. It probably helped that older cartoons were just trying to be entertaining while modern cartoons more often had to start adding educational or moral lessons. (usually due to outside influence) Not having to wait for new episodes was also a plus. Most of the time I watched episodes of Jetsons, Looney Tunes, etc it was something I hadn't seen before.
>>1467 Yeah, the commercials are a deal breaker for me nowadays. I have zero patience for them anymore. I'd rather just download a bunch of episodes of a show or buy it on physical media than sit through them. Even if it's better on paper, it kind of feels cheap though. I remember how big of a big deal it felt like when a show I liked would come on compared to watching episodes at my own convenience. >>1468 >Not having to wait for new episodes was also a plus. Most of the time I watched episodes of Jetsons, Looney Tunes, etc it was something I hadn't seen before. I remember really liking the Jetsons movie from the '80s as a really little kid, which I think was actually considered a piece of crap. As bad of a reputation as Hanna-Barbera has, I always liked The Flintstones, The Jetsons, and Jonny Quest. Scooby-Doo was kind of repetitive to me, but I still enjoyed that too. That also goes for the '70s stuff with Scrappy Doo and the celebrity guest stars. I even liked the direct-to-video stuff, although I never saw anything after Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase.
>>1472 >As bad of a reputation as Hanna-Barbera has To be fair a lot of their reputation was with their cheap animation and Scooby-Doo knockoffs. (Some of them I didn't mind, but I would have gotten sick of them sooner without watching other shows.) The Flintstones, The Jetsons, and Jonny Quest were all good. Even Jetsons just being "Flintstones in the future" was more creative than most of their Scooby-Doo knockoffs. >I even liked the direct-to-video stuff The direct to video Scooby Doo movies in the 90s/early 2000s were great. It was actually cool watching them deal with actual supernatural stuff instead of a guy in a mask. >it kind of feels cheap though. I remember how big of a big deal it felt like when a show I liked would come on compared to watching episodes at my own convenience You're right. It's not as special to watch a show at anytime compared to when you waited until 7p on a Friday night for that new episode to come out. It doesn't help that younger generations are getting less patient and have shorter attention spans. I think the most special TV moments to me were the series finales of Avatar & Ed Edd n Eddy, especially considering most shows on Nickelodeon or Cartoon Network would end quietly instead. >Avatar had gone through a couple hiatuses >out of nowhere we get this trailer I still re-watch today https://yewtu.be/watch?v=5avd9_8rXH0 >that week in July finally comes >new episodes every night finishing off with the final movie on Friday >Ed Edd n Eddy advertises its final movie >we straight up got a 24 hour marathon of every episode finishing off with the movie premiere >Cartoon Network wanted to give a proper send-off for its longest running series and fucking delivered My siblings and I were hyped for weeks waiting. Moments like that you can't replicate with livestreaming. It's not the same.

Do you guys know any similar 90s cyberpunk or internet related movies with similar aesthetics? I fucking love this shit, especially Hackers
>>1734 More similar to Johnny Mnemonic, Strange Days Lawnmower Man Closest think to Hackers is probably Anti-trust.
>>1734 Matrix
>>1734 One lesser known cyberpunk movie from the 90s is Ghost in the Machine (1993), very cheesy with lots of dated CGI and "computers are magic" moments, but still a delight to watch. >>1761 >Strange Days Man I fucking loved that movie, leagues above JM too.
>>1764 >Ghost in the Machine (1993), very cheesy with lots of dated CGI and "computers are magic" moments Nice, need to check it out.
>>1766 Why is Big Eyeball Man scarfing down sausage links?
>>1798 Cause he's tubular.
