Sonic Boom (Untagged Spoilers)

Recommended Posts

Well, looks like I was right about Sonic's fear of water having a role in the scuba episode. I was also right about the spacesuits factoring into "Spacemageddonocalypse"'s plot, minus Sticks' suit.

I'm already imagining how the scene where Sonic gets the news they're going underwater will play out.

Also, the episode after "Nutwork" is titled "Alone Again, Unnaturally". Wonder what that one could be about? Eh, we'll find out soon enough.

Season 2 episode 2 was better then S2 EP1 I say. Was amusing to see Knuckles showing off that sometimes brawn over brain is the best answer. I feel the Dr.Eggman joke element was falling apart on this episode when he was trying to pick only a few people for his bunker... Sure there wasn't much room inside it, but it might had been funnier if he tried to forced them all in like a can of fish... Or that they didn't write the bunker to small to start with.

Due to me working nights on the weekend and the time change, my chance to see the latest episode of Sonic Boom was a bit delayed. Anyway, now that I've gotten to see it, I would like to give my take on Spacemageddonocalypse. Goodness, that's a mouthful! :P 

I really liked this episode bar the pacing being a bit off and those unnecessary long pauses which I honestly feel has no place in an 11-minute episode. Knuckles was definitely the star of this episode and this episode gave me quite a bit to laugh about and had a ton of references to various things that I enjoyed catching.

Going to jump into some observations I noticed starting off with 2 things seen in Episode 2 that weren't present in Episode 1:

a title card

And Orbot and Cubot

We've had several continuities of Sonic admiring himself in the mirror. Now add Boom Sonic to that list! It did do some good giving Tails an idea!

Tails is shown to be a lefty here in this shot! I'm sure it's not cannon but this lefty is delighted to see her favorite character in the cartoon seen to be the same! :P

"Drawing" straws...I saw this joke coming a mile away! :D

Team Sonic having another "pow-wow". After seeing this many times in the show so far this hasn't gotten old at all!

FkHq6Ps.png?1
Seeing some familiar and unfamiliar people among the crowd here while Dr. Eggman chooses his finalists to enter the bunker. Wonder if we will see more of them or if any of them will have a significant role in Season 2

Knuckles using a TV listing to explain how Sonic gets to save the world at least once a week is a reference to how Sonic Boom is a television series that airs once a week. Breaking the fourth wall at it's finest! Also, that TV listing uses images from previous episodes in the Sonic Boom cartoon.

Knuckles handling business after the Solar Convergence Device breaks and saving the day as well smashing that asteroid-in space! :)

And Sonic got the chance to be a hero too-with Amy's hammer no less! 

Again I thought Spacemageddonocalypse was a good episode despite the pacing issues and pauses. In regards to the latter maybe a quick scene inside the bunker could of been made for a quick laugh or something. Despite that it was still an enjoyable episode with the jokes, music, references and very good portrayal of Knuckles. Looking forward to seeing what "Nutwork" is all about next! :)

Speaking of the mirrors...

The mirror image doesn't show Stick's blue irises, makes you wonder if what she said is actually legit...

or it's an animation error

Okay, who brought Classic Sticks into this show?

The power of alternate dimensions, Donnie muh boi!

Apparently in Spacemeggddonocalypse, there were some villagers we haven't seen before.

According to ol' Billy Boi, only of these new villagers has a name, Beth the Shrew. Take a guess on who she is.

I'm gonna guess it's the pink girl.

Anyway, we have more episode names, and order! After Nutwork, is an episode called The Biggest Fan. And then Alone Again Unnaturally.

Episode 6 is new, Anything you can do, I can do worser. After that is the diving episode, Sonic's fear. Then a new one, In the Midnight Hour.

No synopsis for the new episodes yet, and you can find the dates here: http://tvlistings.zap2it.com/tvlistings/ZCProgram.do?sId=EP02040281&t=Sonic+Boom&method=getEpisodesForShow&desc=on

I'm trying to avoid spoilers, but I thought I'd post my findings for Sonic Boom's ratings from the statuses.

I found some ratings data for Sonic Boom TV.  http://www.showbuzzdaily.com/articles/showbuzzdailys-top-150-saturday-cable-originals-network-finals-11-19-2016.html#comment-166943

Oyy.... It didn't even make the top 150 Cable shows on Saturday. This makes sense when you consider that the episode not only aired earlier than the date CN announced for renewing Sonic Boom (CN announced December but started airing in November), but was also barely advertised (That one trailer doesn't count). It also wasn't spread around a lot that the show had switched channels either.

Goddammit CN and SEGA...

Yeah, I'm not very impressed right now. Here's hoping that if Season 3 ever comes along, the show switches networks. Actually, if there isn't any sort of binding contract, it would be optimal to make the switch now (and perhaps several months ago)-- but alas, there probably is.

Its very annoying because if CN hates the show so much, it should simply save money by not picking up subsequent seasons. There was nothing obligating it to air the second season-- it had no problems simply canceling shows like Young Justice and Sym-biotic Titan when it decided that they weren't in line with what the executives wanted for the channel, and those shows had and still have a much larger following than Sonic Boom-- so what's holding them back from doing the same with Sonic Boom? As I've said before, with Season 1 I kind of got it-- with the airing rights sorted out before the show had finished production, CN might have been under the impression that Boom was a different kind of comedy than what it is, but with Season 2 there's no reason for CN not to know what its getting into with Boom. Is CN really just this incompetent, or is this a matter of "if I don't like it, it must be bad and must be killed"? I hope its not the latter but I'm developing a suspicion of such.

How many times do I have to say it?

I am sick and tired of this show being so grievously mistreated. This kind of treatment is slowly killing it. We may not see another season if this keeps up.

SEGA needs to realize this is happening and react accordingly, either forcing CN to treat Boom better or taking it off the channel entirely. This is stupid.

Does Cartoon Network just...have a grudge against this show or something? Is it a money thing?

Why the sheer incompetence?

Like I've said before Cartoon Network within the last few years just has a grudge against anything that isn't an in house property.

This is the problem. I told Aaron Webber about the situation. What happened? No response. I tried asking a Kotaku writer to do a report. Nothing. It's like no one cares. And I don't know HOW we can take matter into our own hands. Spreading the word about the show won't help.

Cartoon network isn't known to treat non-CN originals so fairly. ( Heck, their own shows get screw over too by showing Teen Titans go all day) That's why shows like pokemon or transformers have early time slots and have little promotion. Sonic Boom isn't any different. :V Complaining about it to show's producers isn't going to change anything. 

Going to CN was a big mistake on Sega's part. 

Personally, I would've sent it off to Netflix and Hulu.

Wait, they're not going to be showing Spacemageddonocalypse on Cartoon Network this week? I don't have Boomerang, so I've been waiting for the rerun in order to watch it. And now they're not even going to show it? Why are they making so hard to support this show?

It'll be on CN next week, along with this week's new-to-Boomerang episode, "Nutwork"-- the first full half-hour of new(-to-CN) episodes in quite some time.

For all that CN does wrong with Boom, at least they're willing to play catch-up.

Filling out a contact form on CN's website expressing my dissatisfaction at the way the show has been treated. I'm expecting a generic form letter, as is standard for most companies, but I hold small hope for a real response.

though if the response says something along the lines of "we value all our fans", I'm going to be really annoyed for about five minutes XP

Glad to hear someone's saying something to them about this. Hopefully it gets through.

This ticks me off. Why show a whole weekend of "Teen Titans go" when you have it on literally every. Single. Day. Of every. Single. Hour.  That crud's infuriates me to no zenith. I use to love "Cartoon Network" back in it's prime (CN city) now it's reduce to mere crudiness. I still love it, albeit some of it's shows that never gets air time. And then there are shows that are ending soon ("Regular Show" in January); but do they have the audacity to have it go out in a positive way? No. I'm losing my temper with this guys but unfortunately I have to pitch my TV series to them because they're the only competent ones out of the bunch ("Nickelodeon", "Disney"). And that's saying a lot.   

 

Back on topic, I got to see it through illegal means but I liked it. The Wihlem scream, Knuckles shattering the rock to mere pieces and Robotnik scamming people out of their money.
