I've only seen the first I think 7 episodes of the new TTGShow. Unless there's more promise in episodes 8+, then I see no "spark." Not even a glimmer. Watching them is on my to-do list, but so far, it's honestly not like the old show. The only way the characters can even be compared to the old show's character is if you say "Slade and Sesshomaru... yeah, they have a lot in common." Yes, they do.... but it's just their 'personality types' matching up in general. Similar with Vlad Masters (Danny Phantom) and Slade matching up.
Take every 'generic' personality type and you'll find their duplicates in every other show/comic/movie/media form, because it gets repetitive. Not really in a "bad" way, it's usually pretty fun, but compare Ed from Cowbow Bebop to G.I.R. from Invader Zim. Ed's smarter, but their general "eccentric/ peppy" personality type is more or less the same. It's kind of a cliché list;
the angry character;
the brooding dark character;
the overly-adventurous character;
the shy, polite character;
the super friendly character;
the hyperactive eccentric........
(the list is bigger, but it gets too long )
As I said, I've only seen the first 6 or 7 episodes of the new show, but from what I see... no. There is no "spark" from the old show. It's a complete remake, with only the generic "personality checklist" used while everything else is flexible for each joke in the show. But it sounds like you like the new show, and I'm glad for that much. Just because I hate it doesn't mean everyone has to.
Unfortunately, I agree with you about TTGShow... I hate to admit where it's got good points. But the actors were always magic, and much as I hate to admit it, some of their acting skills in TTGShow are better than in TT.
It would and yet wouldnot be a great thing if TT came back in full.
Fact: they were going to change a lot of things in season 6. The formula for the show was going to alter, and personally I was against that. Season 5 was a warmup for those changes and that is, by far, the least entertaining season. Everyone agrees on that. Even people who loved season 5 admit "yeah, it wasn't as good as the previous seasons..." But that's the way it would have been if they had kept going. Though, it would have gotten worse with the additional changes to be made in season 6.
If they revive the show and get back on schedule, those changes are going to happen. If the changes were good for the show, then fine and dandy. But they weren't. As season 5 demonstrated.
It would be interesting to see, but I'm glad the show is dead and won't be coming back. In this age of "fads", chances are the writers would be working to appeas the original fanbase and unfortunately a lot of them are selfish about wanting the show to grow up with them. Be more like them.
It's a kid's show and I don't see why it can't stay a kid's show. Kids have so few good shows to watch that are both action based and teach moral values usually without being too corny. Let kids have the show. If the original fans are so"grown up" then they're mature enough to do what all mature adults do: LET KIDS HAVE THEIR FUN. We're grown men and women, we don't need these whimsical things as much as kids do, they're still developing--they NEED good input like the old TT show. We don't. To them, it's a lesson that helps mold their whole world for the rest of their lives, to us it's just entertainment.
We don't need it. Let them have it.
... but I'm rambling now sorry... that argument always burned me. These people saying they're "grown ups"... but they sure don't act like "grown ups" should.
Anyrate, don't hold your breath for anyone "real" getting their hands on TT to make a season 6. DC comics and Cartoon Network hold rights to that show, and they're both too greedy for their own good. They'll never let it go.
Though fans can make attempts Which is what me and a few friends are doing for fun in a group of ours.
