    High School USA! - ADHD

    Didn't feel like bumping the old ADHD thread as that may as well turn into a thread that talks about all their YouTube shorts, and currently I haven't seen them yet. But in this thread, I'm bringing the discussion of Dino Stamatopoulos's new creation, High School USA! Stamatopoulos is known for Adult Swim's Moral Orel and Mary Shelley's Frankenhole, both clay animated shows, now he's going into a traditional animation style as you can see in this picture below:
    Once again from The Futon Critic's announcement,
    Quote Originally Posted by The Futon Critic

Led by the painfully nave and always upbeat MARSH MERRIWETHER, there is nothing these kids can't put a positive spin on, from cyber-bullying to Adderall-addiction to embarrassing sexting incidents. HIGH SCHOOL USA! is created and written by Dino Stamatopoulos ("Community," "Mr. Show," "TV Funhouse" and "Moral Orel"), and features an all-star cast including Vincent Kartheiser ("Mad Men") and Mandy Moore ("Tangled").
    Here are three or four episode titles. I'm not sure about the first one if it's going to really be called that but here is what is copyrighted currently:

    Pilot
    Adderall
    Prictures
    Bullies

    So, discuss this show. I'm a little more excited for this than Axe Cop, but just a little. I'm actually excited to see all three shows this summer and I hope the ADHD block actually delivers a great performance, but it'll probably go vulgar over quality like a lot of shows suffer with, like Brickleberry (which by the way I really like) and Full English.

    Well I'm gonna go off-topic just for a second but some of those ADHD videos on youtube are surprising they can get away with showing that stuff on a basic network like that. I mean it will probably be censored (like the big Turtle Penises). But it's still pretty surprising. Anyway....

    This show the animation judging from that screen looks like crap. The premise could be okay seems like it would be an adult version of "6teen". We'll see how it plays out...don't know of any of Dino's work except Community and I find that show pretty average.

    You'd be impressed if you saw the value that he put into Moral Orel, especially towards its last season and the newest special they produced. He's probably a genius that isn't as well known in the animation world. As for Frankenhole, I heard it's great, I just haven't seen it for myself to give a solid opinion.

    On the animation looking a little crummy, I kinda spotted that too from the design, but it's just one picture. I'm not going to judge JUST yet.

    I'm just waiting to hear more about that untitled Lucas Brothers project, which out of the four shows ordered, sounded the best one with a solid premise.

    I was JUST about to ask if this was a parody of Archie or not...because it looks like it.

    Sounds about right. At least it sounds a Hell of a lot better than that stupid Axe Cop shit.

    I also watched Moral Orel, and Dino Stamatopolous is very creative and dedicated to his work. So I'll definitely be tuning in.

    I'm glad someone in here isn't being negative.

    Anyways I'm looking forward to this and Axe Cop as well.

    This is a little off-topic, but I find it hard to believe that two notable Dino Stamatopoulos' exist. One of them is an animator and the other is a politician. Like seriously, DINO STAMATOPOULOS. Not a very common name.

    Anyway, I haven't seen much of Dino's work, but this can't be as bad as Axe Cop will probably be.

    Axe Cop, I love the comics. No idea about the show though. May be too filthy.

    Even though people are kinda complaining about the design already, think about Moral Orel for a moment. Didn't that look too damn close to Davey and Goliath, the Christian claymation series from the 60's? I guess Dino somewhat chose to go this style that looks similar to the Archie characters, but I really don't mind. As long as the show delivers, I'm happy.

    I sense this show is going to be very high on fan-service. Like they want to make it as dirty as they can, which makes me think it would have been a better fit for Comedy Central or something.

    Haven't seen the poster yet. Shaun, you should probably get them from a non-whore site. lol

    I'm imagining it will be a bit in the style of Moral Orel. It will be dirty with the cleanliness of the characters, but progressing on it shows a darker side.

    I got them from SpoilerTV, which was the first result Google gave me for the Comic-Con 2013 poster search
