Good intro to a great show that wasn't allowed to live up to its full potential.
Doomstein
Yeah, liked this show as well. I remember when it was titled 'Low Brow' and lost the vote to be the new 'cartoon cartoon.' I think Dexter's Lab beat it or something.
Spike Jonez
Codename: Kids Next Door beat it.

SolRo
The first couple episodes were really great, then it kind of went on cruise control, mixing average with brief moments of awesome.

Also; Jersey.
Vicious
Psst: it's XLR.
thebaronsdoctor
Aw crap, I meant to do that, I swear!

I think this show got overshadowed by the deluge of mediocrity Adult Swim rolled out at the same time.
Corman's Inferno
This show was no stranger to mediocrity. Awesome concept, great director, but the writers were terrible.

mantang0
But it came out in the afternoon, not on Adult Swim! (kids dig giant robots too)

Xenocide
The writing wasn't terrible, but it was inconsistent. Some episodes were hilarious, others were a pain to sit through. But the good ones more than made up for the bad.

The problem IS that this show wasn't on Adult Swim.

Kids didn't get the pop-culture jokes or the obvious jabs at the children of the 90s (i.e. most of us)

The Megas crew had some writing issues. The co-creator/head writer is a dick and was suspended for a time for being a dick. Early on he put his foot down on every single tiny issue he could in a political struggle that was completely in his head. After his suspension he gave fuck all about the show, rather seeing it burn in flames then succeed out of spite. Within a few months he began accusing nearly everyone he knew that they were out to ruin him.

BHWW
This show was pretty decent, is all I can say.
RandomFerret
This is the show Gurren Lagann was based on.
Aernaroth2
Incorrect. Gurren Lagann is based on EVERY show to have a giant robot, ever.

Caminante Nocturno
Everything Cartoon Network shows or has shown has a thin-yet-noticeable stain of Bleedman coated all over it.
HURF BLURF DUH
You're just hating because it's not Japanese and the female co-protagonist is clearly not a pre-teen

j lzrd / swift idiot
Hahaha, Bleedman. Now it is time for the J Lzrd to go peruse PoE's DeviantArt exibit, again.

Also, I'm still pissed off that My Life As A Teenage Robot isn't on the air anymore.

What are you people, 12? Not trolling, just genuinely surprised at the response to this.
Xenocide
Someone needs to grow up, but it sure as hell ain't us.

Scrotum H. Vainglorious
No he's right.

Caminante Nocturno
No he's not.

Internet tough guy syndrome detected. Please take a break and come back in a few minutes.

You are dead inside.

EVERYTHING IS EITHER FIVE OR ONE THERE ARE NO OTHER STARS

HURF BLURF DUH
This show was sure as hell better than Ben 10.
Cinnamon Imperialist
These stars go for the intro, not the actual show. I agree, if it had been on Adult Swim (or MTV as they'd originally planned, hence the running gag of destroying the PopTV Satellite in every episode), but as it stands it was a cool premise that didn't really go anywhere.

MEGAS was never supposed to be on Mtv. THe reason for all teh Mtv bashing is because they cancelled the production team's first series, MTV Downtown. Megas co-creator George Krstic was story editor on Downtown. Co-creator Jody Scheaffer was a character designer on DT and Director Chris Prynoski was the creator of DT. Jody and Chris now work on Metalocolypse, Chris owns Titmouse Studios and Directs half the episodes and Jody works as an animator (credited as Vicious Bastard, a nickname I gave him in college). George is working on the new Star Wars Clone Wars CG show.
Cinnamon Imperialist
That's really awesome, actually. I stroke my beard in your general direction, good sir.

Cheese
Well, I was there while the stuff was being made, so it's not much of a beardy knowledge thing, more of a 'this is my biography' thing.
