As you're aware, a new series was released on Nickelodeon a few weeks ago.



Is it as good as the old series that you remember?

Hmmm. I hope to see this series on Hulu or Netflix, so I can judge along with my kids.

Wow. I somehow missed that announcement. I'm with Vapor, gotta wait for it to hit Netflix to judge for myself. After the Inspector Gadget reboot, I'm definitely concerned.

Also, that childlike look is quite disturbing.

Yeah, I was a bit perplexed by that also. Something just doesn't look right. I think they should have stuck with the more traditional look of the characters. But... we'll see.

I don't see what the problem is with their appearance. Is it an uncanny valley kind of thing? Looks no more saccharine than the general kids' cartoon landscape these days. Plus, did you know Ross Bagdasarian can Ross Bagdasarian get Ross Bagdasarian stuck Ross Bagdasarian in Ross Bagdasarian your Ross Bagdasarian head?

@shakin: What if a mispronunciation of his name gets stuck in your head?

I don't know. Tell me, what if a mispronunciation of his name gets stuck in your head?

(Are you telling a joke here, what's going on?)

What I find interesting is that they didn't even make a brand new theme song. They used the same theme song from the 80s series, though it was shorter.

Of course, even if they did use a new theme song, it likely wouldn't have been as good.

Those who want to check out the show, there's an episode or two available for viewing on Nick.com.
