Look at how the other heroes smile at him, they are genuinely happy to meet him. When Superman saves him, he isn’t upset. He’s happy. He asked to be saved and he was
And it’s not the last time either. You see it here
he works well with the justice league members even though his interactions with them are rare and in between.
He’s literally never afraid to ask them for help
I mean, look at that. He made the bat signal, he was outright asking for help as publicly as he ever could.
and in “Fallen hero” when he thought Green Lantern really had become evil…
Just look at his face. He is shocked. He can’t believe one of his heroes would do this, he tried to figure out why, tried to come up with a reason to explain it, so it would make sense.
And the moment Sinestro, disguised as Green Lantern, hurt Gear. He knew it was true, and he’s horrified that the person he looked up to did this and he’s angry, angry that he didn’t see this.
Static knows when to fight
but he also knows when someone just needs a helping hand
and sure, he jokes around
but he also knows how important the work he does is
and he also knows what happens if he messes up
His family knows what it is he does and they all support him in whatever way they can.
and that’s why I love Static shock. Yes, they touched upon some serious issues
they didn’t dumb it down for the audience, or treat the issues with kiddie gloves, they addressed the issues and those were also the same episodes that they broke the fourth wall. Dyslexia, gun control, gang violence, racism. They didn’t pull their punches on this show.
They showed us a still very much grieving teenager who almost joins a gang in the first episode, who gets powers that he uses to protect other people without a moment of hesitation, not even thinking of getting revenge on his bullies. Even as a superhero, he still volunteers at the community center his dad runs.
Yes, Virgil makes mistakes, he’s still a kid after all, but he’s so genuinely kind and sincere that we can’t help but love him.
I don’t know if it actually is Static shock appreciation week officially, but it is for me
Literally anyone: they don’t make cartoons like they used to :/
Me: DARN TOOTIN THEY DON’T. We’re in a renaissance of American animation with some of the best cartoons we’ve ever had. I’m talkin art styles, I’m talkin clever and heartfelt writing, I’m talkin voice actors, I’m talkin diverse casts and characters, I’m talkin new animation techniques. All I watch is cartoons and I’ve got a list of shows for you to watch if you think kids don’t have quality shows to watch these days. And if you think they’re only enjoyable for kids, then woooo boy I’ve got some shows for you.
With decades of Batman continuity obsessed with becoming as dark and miserable as possible, it was nice to look back at your time in the cowl and smile. I have many fond memories of watching your show as a kid, curled up with my dad in his armchair– which would initiate a love for this character that I still feel strongly today.
the negative Amazon reviews on American gods are hilarious
“If i could give this series a zero i would. One, it was too slow. I mean extremely slow. Two, you get lost in the whole thing, and not in a good way. And third, out of all the movies, tv shows, everything in my life, i have never been grossed out by a sex scene.“
“If you want a too quirky show that rolls around in liberal ideology. This is for you. If you are not a supporter of uber-liberal tripe, then skip this. Within the first couple of episodes, you get a thinly veiled black-lives rant, and multiple drawn out (way past any need to tell a story) gay/lesbian scenes that are simply gratuitous. Sad commentary on what passes for story telling.”
“One star with an explanation. The show is wonderful; visually stunning with the likes of Ian McShane leading an all star cast. Then? Then they went and did it; gay crap for the sake of, what? Appeasing the so called gay community? The scene was senseless. It added nothing to the story. All it was was a gay writer and/or director throwing in a disgusting scene for kids to see. Yeah, you can say no kids should be watching this show but, really? Of course they’ll be watching along with everyone else. So, there you have it. A shining show with a permanent black mark against it just to push forward political ideology in what is supposed to be entertainment. Parents, keep your young ones from watching. Who knows what further abnormal trash the creators have approved?”
“well…I was interested…until ep 2 begins with a self-indulgent, white-hating, racist diatribe…cancelling starz access…”
Thank you @neil-gaiman and Bryan Fuller for pushing your gay liberal agenda on us.
