Presenters who tried to be ‘hip’ always bugged me, even as a kid.
Making fun of it just makes me want to watch it.
I know, right? Still, I find the channel useful. Deltora Quest FTW.
Deltora Quest is alright; I just wish Lief’s voice wasn’t so annoying.
That thing was awful.
The avatar the site gave you makes me keep reading ‘Jabberwocky’ as ‘Jabberwalky.’
Oh god, why did I watch this?
Why did I *TIVO* it?
So you could watch it again & again for reference for this comic? Like the Zapruder film, but more lame.
Back & to the left… Back & to the left.
I don’t know about you, but I DVR’d it because I’m the doofus in the purple hat who asks what’s not to love.
You TIVO’d it because some disasters must be recorded, so that later generations never make the same mistakes again. (Also so the clown never gets to move past acting like a tremendous tool)
Isn’t it comforting to know there’s someone who can cause more pain to more people simultaneously than Mike’s ever dreamt of?
So it was just like TF2 vs TRoC?
Huge marketing for Transformers, and GI Joe get a tiny little mention once or twice?
It must be nice to be able to watch The Hub. I had to download the Prime episodes Saturday. Hope the rest of the series gets uploaded shortly after airing.
…And this is why God gave us DVRs.
Ah, kids TV presenters…so generally annoying. Although The Zone, YTV’s afternoon programming block is generally pretty good…better than the Vortex or Crunch (the old weekend morning block and its replacement), anyway. Maybe accounting for the target audience being tired from school on weekday afternoons, and full of sugary cereal on weekend mornings…
Good god I never saw this guy for real and I already hate him o.o
Transformers: Now with Zombies! And thanks hub. Now I know the basic plot of that upcoming comic book zombie event that crosses over Transformers with G.I Joe, Star Trek, and Ghostbusters….
Club Mario, is…is that you?
Somebody besides me remembers Club Mario??
You have my sympathies brother.
I’ve been trying to bleach Tommy Treehugger and Co-MC out of my brain for almost 19 frickin’ years!
I remember that, because I guess they showed the Captain Lou Mario episodes like 800 times. Still the same cartoons.
Don’t forget Tammy Treehugger and Co-MC’s evil twin brother Eric. I don’t want to be the only one who’s haunted by Eric’s voice. “This’a my show!”
“This is a cool show with cool people and ocol issues, man!”
god damn it.
“This is a cool show with cool people and cool issues, man!”
It’s mean to put a little [X] in the corner of your fake wiki pledge drive banner, but not have the [X] actually work.
That’s not mean, that’s marketing!
So it’s G4?
No, G4 at least had the decency to include an annoying-but-pretty girl along with the annoying guy.
Annoying but pretty? You mean Manjaw Morgan? O.o
I so don’t know names. Didn’t each show have its own yappy broad?
Maybe i’m just getting old, but people who talk like that should be flayed or something.
The fact that you have the Mike Icon makes your comment infinitely better.
You think that is annoying?
Have you ever heard the mousy voiced little sk … lady from YTV the zone way back when? A 20 something you thought way doing a bad impression of voicing as a 4 year old – The sick-sad-truth is that her voice needed no electronic modification, she really does sound like that in real life. She is also totally clueless of nearly everything that kids (and a number of adults) are into with respect to games, animation, comics and such.
I would post a clip but I am not all THAT cruel.
No BE cruel, you might start some sort of meme :Y
Is this your card?
That… was horrifying.
D: You insulted Sug.
Pistols at dawn.
He sounds like a real “Superstar”.
Now I’m putting Pat Lee in place of the Hub Guy.
Painful irony, or just revenge on the jerk?
I’m now curious to know if he has to promote My Little Pony in the same manner.
Well given the quality of Transformers prime compared to the quality of the new GI Joe show it’s obvious why they focus more on prime. Neither show is horrid but the new GI Joe toon just has such bad animation and very generic character designs.
I have no idea how anyone can possibly think that the G.I. Joe cartoon has bad animation.
It seems to be a recurring theme among internet complainers who know absolutely nothing about animation.
Seems pretty choppy to me but hey, i have more of a problem with the generic designs. I still like the show though. I like it alot.
Well, those noses are pretty weird looking.
How noses are drawn has nothing to do with animation! Animation is how things move.
I actually really like the new Joe toon’s animation. According to the making of that aired on HUB, it’s actually pretty revolutionary.
According to the Hub the new transformers isn’t supposed to look like a knock of version of Beast Wars, animation wise.
You want to talk bad animation? Nothing, and I mean nothing, is as bad as the old Spiderman and Rocket Robin hood cartoons I was forced to watch as a kid.
Do you mean the ninties or the sixties Spider-man? I mean both had bad animation but the 60′s Spider-man was just a step up from a motion comic.
Anyway I was not insulting the show it just seemed choppy to me.
PROTIP: there was no ’90s Rocket Robin Hood.
Maybe it’s me, but I’ve watched Hub and have yet to see this…thing.
This brings to mind half the ‘Don’t Do Drugs’ presentations that I was forced to sit through as a kid. So boring and so annoying. You just want to reach out there and wring their necks. Am I right?
I thought the G.I. Joe toon was much better than Transformers: Prime. The CGI sets and scenes looked drab, dark and boring. Seems such a step down from Transformers Animated. I almost couldn’t get past the bland visuals to pay attention to the story. I’d prefer mediocre 2D animation over cheap CGI.
When I originally saw the character designs for G.I. Joe Renegades, I didn’t like them either, but it all looked much better in motion. And it’s an interesting new take on the mythology.
I had to comment just to ask the question, who the heck eats a corn dog while sitting on the toilet?
Don’t forget the wicked new My Little Pony series, Friendship is Magic.
I am not joking. That thing is hilarious and surprisingly good.
“He’s not just the coolest. He’s not just the best. He’s Justin Kredible”
Why must tv nobodies steal the great wrestling catchphrases?
So are Prime and War for Cybertron supposed to be in the same continuity? Granted I’ve only played the first level of the game and seen the first two episodes of the show, but so far this theory seems to be contradicted by (only) absolutely everything.
The character designs bear no resemblance at all (are those two Soundwaves even the same guy?), and why is Dark Energon suddenly a new thing to Megatron and Starscream? Didn’t Starscream spend a few millenia guarding a facility that studied it? Didn’t Megatron already beef up on it? In front of Starscream no less?
I’d love to hear the rational behind linking these two things.
They’re the same “Continuity Family” basically. Like how the G1 Cartoon and Marvel Comic were totally different versions of A G1 Universe?
Transformers Prime and WfC are two alternate versions of the same basic “universe.” Not too hard a concept.
“Old news”? The show aired this weekend. You’re sounding like those kids on xbox live who scream at “Newbs” on a new game’s launch day.
Now now. There was also… the song.
Thanks for reminding me… Just when I was starting to repress that memory, too…
…I think Renegades may have actually dodged a bullet by not being mentioned on hubworld. (Can’t believe I watched that damn thing.)
Wow. This guy made me want to punch him. In his FAAAAACCCCEE.
The tiny flag-waving “woooo” thing made up for it though. Took his mother out for dinner to apologize. Only dinner though, she couldn’t wait through a movie.
Well, I sure hope I still have the Joe avatar, because that would’ve been even stupider without it. ^_^
Oh wait. The Joe avatar is over on DoA.
That guy was trying way, way too hard.
I really want to see him talk about My Little Pony, though. “SUP BITCHES! In today’s episode, things get whack when Cupcake Town runs out of rainbows right before the big princess derby! That’s right. Shit just GOT REAL.”
Wow. I had no idea the “wikipedia creator appeals” were generating that much snarky blowback.
You mention Hubworld, but not the insanely awesome new My Little Pony show they have, Willis? For shame.
This reminds me of the guy that used to run (our local?) UPN when Pokémon first came on.. and he’d give it lead-ins.. he wasn’t so hip or anything, but he was some guy in a cheap set talking about shows I liked..
Huh? Oh right, Prime is awesome, and new GI Joe’s premise makes me laugh.
*sigh* When will TV-people learn that there is only one True Kids’ TV Host, and that Stick Stickly can never be replaced.
New York City, New York State 10108.
That will stay with me for the rest of my life.
