Hey everybody, ETSS here for another editorial. After re watching Dragonball GT, I think I finally know why I found it so…not good

it has good ideas, but it doesn’t know what to do with them

Gt actually has pretty alright pacing. They introduced plotpoints correctly, knew how to build them up. The problem was that the end result was kinda bleugh.

The first time we see Trunks, he’s this intelligent, smooth, savvy businessman (think an anime tony starrk, with 60% less alcoholism). For the rest of the show, though, he’s as bland as boiled cabbage. He says nothing interesting, he does nothing interesting (at least until he’s controlled by Baby) and at the end, he’s completely forgotten, even though we spent the entire show with him!

When we first meet Pan, she’s shown to be headstrong, but well meaning. Eager to prove herself as worthy of her family’s legacy, even if it gets her into massive trouble. Not the best start, but room to build. Except, we DON’T, for the rest of the show, Pan becomes more annoying, whiny, ungrateful, and insufferable than Dawn from Buffy, and that’s something I never thought I would say!

Uub was supposed to be Goku’s heir. The one to inherit the responsibility of protecting Earth when Goku eventually died. I can count the number of times we see Uub onscreen on ONE HAND. What the hell?! 

You see my point? It’s not that there aren’t good ideas in this show, there most certainly are, the problem is that they aren’t implemented well. I don’t know what happened during production, but something screwed up along the way!

The Baby saga is the only arc in the show that’s anywhere near salvageable. Hell, it comes close to becoming legitimately good at points. But even that isn’t enough. Top it all off with terrible dialogue, so-so acting, and sub par fight scenes (DBZ, the franchise that wrote the book on how to do a proper fight scene in animation, has sub par fight scenes…let that sink in) and you have yourself a stinker that the entire fanbase is determined to sweep as fr under the rug as they can.

Well, it could be worse, it could be Evolution XD

Ben Hurst gave his account of events years ago, basically saying that when he went to contact SEGA, they told him off and said that HE didn't get to tell THEM what to do, and he said this was because Penders went behind his back and contacted SEGA first about his movie pitch without telling him.

Penders was asked about this once after Hurst had passed away and said he refused to talk about it since Hurst was dead and couldn't defend himself. Then later he said that Hurst had no business sense compared to him

(Disclaimer, I stole this idea for a sonic tv show of a post from 4chan)

A sonic tv show with Genesis Sonic's general atmosphere, locations, aesthetics and badnik-busting, AoStH's Sonic/Tails broship focus and comedic Robotnik henchmen, SatAM's characters and sci-fi lore, and maybe some of the other characters throughout the game series showing up here and there as secondaries. Have episodes last as two-parters to give fleshed out mini-plots whilst having season-long main plots that become the main focus for the last few parters. Make it generally comedic but with an in-universe sense of "seriousness" and some feels.

That'd be cool enough

I think that's a pretty good idea actually, taking the best of all worlds
