    This video (or at least the first one-third of it) made me want to watch Community, because of its resemblance with Disney's Recess :


    We also saw the pilot episode in my scriptwriting class, or at least the cold open. It was pretty funny, and I enjoyed some of the meta humor there that you described.


    The diegetic way the bell-ringing is revealed to have come from the boombox was pretty clever. It certainly doesn't feel like your average low-brow humor that relies on the most conventional jokes.

    Started Star Trek: Lower Decks. What Archer is to James Bond, this is to Star Trek, though there is a lot less sex and horrible people.

    I like to sometimes get a general consensus on individual seasons for shows, especially comedies like this, because there's sometimes talks of a decline of sorts. And everyone was saying how bad season four was... yeah, it was a pretty big let down, for sure.

    Saw about 3 minutes of The Mindy Project before being bored.

    I usually know beforehand whether I will like a new comedy before I give it a try, but it's fun to compare how long I can watch each new show before wanting to turn it off

    Gintama: Silver Soul Arc Part 2

    Sigh.

    That sums up how I feel about Gintama's ending. It's at the same time one of the greatest anime action comedies ever produced, and yet, also one of the most problematic. Not gonna spoil too much, but the "ending" of the final episode pretty much mocks the author of the manga the anime is based on for deciding, at the very last minute, not to end the Gintama story after all. If Deadpool breaks the fourth wall, Gintama nukes it, clean up its remains, then blows it up with a thousand C4. That final fifteen minutes of the last episode was at the same time one of the most hilarious meta moments in the anime, and also its most frustrating. In spite of the SS arc being hyped up as "the ending to Gintama" for such a long time, the final minutes were "Haha, gotcha! Did you really think we were gonna end it this time?" It's the equivalent of Bart Simpson writing on the chalkboard in the cartoon opening, "I will end the series this time." To its credit, only Gintama would be ambitious enough to end the anime with a "Nah fam; we're not really ending the anime" ending. It's done it plenty of times to be honest, almost a running gag really. This time only feels different because it blatantly teased the ending of the franchise in a very overt manner.

    But all jokes aside, I was really prepared for one of my favorite anime to really come to an end. Everything was built up so nicely. All of the past characters showed up as a reunion, the "final boss" of the anime got defeated (sort of), and important character deaths were present (sort of; some of them were revived with slight variations to their appearance). Okay, so maybe these "sort ofs" added up to the foreshadowing that they might not really have planned to end the series after all, but come on, it would've been a perfect finale. lol

    And I know I said these plenty of times about anime I really like, but it has indeed been a journey. Gintama provided both laughs and tears. It was at the same time a parody that makes fun of politics and other anime while also a tearjerking drama where the essence of a person's spirit and his meaning of existence are explored. It was a solid comedy with the best of both worlds, with its story set in both feudal Japan and also over the stretches of outer-space.

    The Silver Soul arc made it feel like I was returning to an old friend, saying my goodbyes one last time. After the seriousness of the main plot was over, after the world war between the final boss and the good guys finally came to an end with all parties exhausted, wounded or dead, the anime was taking its time to indulge the audience with the familiar kind of dumb (but charming) slapstick comedy that we've come to love as if it would be the last time we would come to experience this.

    For all the faults or cliches it might have, Gintama really gave me a good time, keeping my spirits up, and perhaps offering me to shed a few tears (or a few buckets) from time to time. Its soundtrack can be whimsical, action-packed, epic and yet also heartbreaking.

    While not even close to being a masterpiece, Gintama still deserves to stand among the greats.

    4/5

    Oh, and there's a movie coming: Gintama: The Final (it's not the final, no way).

    I thought the ending could've been 1000x worse, but it wasn't everything I hoped for. I love Gintama 5/5 for the show, and a 4.5/5 for the arc

    Legend of Korra

    my original intent was to finish this show quickly but I kinda lost interest... shortly after the end of season three/start of season four. it's no Avatar, but it's still pretty decent. each season having its own plot and villains is really hit-and-miss, though I've read that the production on this show was always kind of troubled so I can't really fault it for that. probably going to finish it in the next couple of days.

    Just watched the F1 race from Russia, and have put my thoughts on 3 blogs.

    Just finished TWO WEEKS TO LIVE. It was pretty good, but I think it went downhill a bit after the first couple of episodes. Also perhaps a bit too much gratuitous violence to sustain the comedy (a bit like Lynne Truss' "Constable Twitten" series, but at least that's side-splittingly funny).

    I'm indifferent to the original and Z.

    Anyway, NCIS.
