Since I've run forums before in the past, those "badge thingies" aren't badge thingies...

Most forums like these have these stars, or other little icons, that coincide with your posting status. Like for example, 1 star for new members, 2 stars for say 50 posts, 3 stars for 100 posts, 4 stars for 1,000 posts, 5 stars for 2,000 posts... and of course, forum staff members have different stars, like admins have 5 red stars, assistant admins or global mods have 5 green stars, regular mods have like 5 blue stars, etc.

Exactly. I wonder if they're trying too hard to prevent another drop like what happened originally with Michael Yarmush, when in Season Five, Arthur suddenly sounded like a teenager.

I think the problem with the voices is that they keep getting voice actors too young anymore... HOW many years now has Arthur sounded more like D.W. and D.W. sounded more like a prepubesent chipmunk? They somehow manage to get a decent voice actor for Brain every other cast change.

Forgive me my unfamiliarity with more current seasons, but who is Kieper?

We seem to have this pattern that goes like we have six to eight weeks or so of episodes from Seasons 5 and 6, and 9 to present, then maybe only a week of episodes from Seasons 1 through 4 and 7 and 8. Two weeks if we're lucky, but not very often.

I think the show passed its prime looooong ago, but as far as this season goes, we have a new strike to add to the series now: the Flash animation.

Now, I've taken courses in Flash animation before, and have dabbled in it a little myself *cough*BUN:DefenderoftheBunnyPeopleonYouTube*cough*, but the Flash animation doesn't work for this season: the characters' movement and expressions and everything are very stiff and robotic compared to the previously tradionally animated seasons. Not only that, but some of the characters' overall designs seem slightly reminiscent of those old computer games from the 90s before the show even started.

I know this stuff is cheaper, more economical, and now the norm and everything, but cheaper isn't always better.

Yeah, I think it's been... maybe a year since I last saw that one... maybe? Lol, I like how "dated" that episode is: Muffy talking about Arthur gleeping her cellULAR phone, and when it rings, it's really large and looks almost like a walky talky. XD

Has anyone noticed that anymore, certain older episodes are played only for special occasions? Like "D.W. Goes to Washington" only being played on special American holidays like Memorial Day, or "April 9th" being played on 9-11?

I believe that would be "What Scared Sue Ellen?"... I'm glad I taped that one, I've actually been watching it frequently as of late.

With PBS being really selective with the episodes they play, there are a lot of older/classic episodes that probably haven't been seen on television in years... what are some episodes that you haven't seen in the longest time that you can still remember in the back of your mind?

I just got to thinking about "Sue Ellen's Lost Diary", for some reason, I was remembering Arthur's intro of trying to read people's minds... then of course, there's the fun intro for "Arthur's Knee" (which unfortunately gets a lot of dirty comments on YouTube).

Might as well get the ball rolling, here's a thread to discussion our favorite episodes.

I would just like to say that there are a number of full half-hour episodes that I really enjoy, but the one that always sticks out in my mind is "The Blizzard; The Rat Who Came to Dinner", both stories have really entertaining premises, and Ratburn is hilarious in both, acting like the school shutting down because of frozen pipes would be like an apocolyptic disaster, not to mention how he really showed that teachers are like other ordinary people too when he stayed with the Reads. Not to mention, both of them had lots and lots of snow, something I don't see very often.
