    Ha! Gay Man drinks Zima. No surprise there. (The Cultural Warriors must have snatched up the remaining stock just before it went extinct.)

    Oh brother. A rather cheesy, simplistic and cloudy cartoon. Looking forward to someone producing something better.

    But…but…but….what’s wrong with wearing a skirt and feeling shame? I call that “Thursday”.

    The European is a German? Oh come on, we don’t own all of Europe (yet).

    Besides, yeah, SMBC in comic form is usually funnier. It’s not bad, but rather… stretched out, I think.

    Best description I ever heard for Zima: “it’s like bad Fresca.”

    How did they get Dawkins to voice for this? Wow!

    I could only watch a few seconds before the cheesiness of the production (notably the utter stupidity of the dialogue) became intolerable.

    Who’s behind this? What is its point? Can someone enlighten those of us incapable of watching it to the bitter end?

    That would be Zach Weindersmith and the rest of the crew at Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal( The point is to mock the caricatures of atheism, LGBT, feminism and evolution that are believed in by a lot of right-wingers, bigots, MRAs and creationists.

    Hey, give the show a chance. Yes, some parts of it don’t make sense, I mean, clearly The Feminist should have stayed as an awesome antihero. That was the real reason people watched the Culture Warriors at the start: her powers of mind control are far greater than Dr Evolution, who seems to only have the power of a good PR department, yet he’s the “edgy” one now that she’s just joined the Warriors. She’s way more awesome than most of them (except the European, he’s dreamy).

    Of course, I always root for the villain. Giga-Jesus is cool, but isn’t the best one to showcase the series. I mean, his motives are all weird and kind of arbitrary, like the writing staff didn’t even talk to each other. Double-Ewe, the shapeshifting shadow-overlord of America, has got a way better backstory in my opinion.

    To parody a caricature you need perfect balance. To my mind it was just cheesy enough to pull it off, going to look for other episodes now :-)

  10. says

    Painfully overblown and yet it could be appearing on Faux Noise or any right-wing wackaloon conpiracy theory show any day now as Serious Business. (That should be ‘sneaked’ by the way.) As the classic ‘we can mock ourselves better than they can’ it has a way to go.

    I grew up on such Saturday-morning fare as The Superfriends (with the Wonder Twins and Gleek – ugh, the irritating mascots have an irritating mascot). This pretty much matched the animation quality and cheesy dialogue of that sort of show. Worthy of the “Saturday Morning” moniker.

    (Although, I seem to recall that Thundarr the Barbarian wasn’t all that bad…)

    There aren’t more episodes. I was being silly and pretending to be a rapid fan, like all comic book shows seem to have.

  13. =8)-DX says

    This was perfect. Anyone not getting the cheesy vibe mustn’t have been growing up in the 80s and 90s. Though as a commenter noted, they forgot the character of Dr. Abortion.

    Can we get some more support in teh War on Easter ?
    Hey, I like candy and frilly pink dresses as much as the next guy, but really, celebrating an execution just seems to be in bad taste. Perhaps some spring festival wherein we celebrate life instead ?

  15. says

    Oh, I’d definitely watch this!

    I can seriously get behind most of what the Culture Warriors apparently stand for. Even making boys grow up wearing skirts and feeling shame. I live my life in shame, all those other self-satisfied bastards can damn well stand to do the same! :p

    This does the best job possible of making fun of how the American religious right thinks.
