Five years into this Star Wars revival and the most interesting homages/ripoffs we've gotten are...Disgaea 5 and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. I'm including official Star Wars media in this estimation.
Why is it that the only new cartoons that are able to take off in internet circles nowadays are huge serialized epics? Infinity Train is like the only new CN show this year that will get any attention, despite Craig of the Creek and Victor & Valentino existing.

@Gatordragon That would make sense, except they generally talk about non-serialized cartoons that they used to watch all the time. So there's clearly discussion to be had.

And honestly, the fact only serialized epics can take off among internet communities has made me burned out on those in general. I want to support the underdogs for a change.

@Toon4Thought It's slice of life cartoons they "used" to watch. Nowadays, The Loud House and Big City Greens are the only non-TV-Y rated slice of life shows that get any major discussion (and TV-Y slice of life shows almost never get discussed)

@SweetShop209 I still don't understand why the Loud House was such a major exception, especially given it was on modern Nickelodeon. I'm happy for it, but still.

I guess I'm really asking why is it slice of life shows no longer generate the attention they used to. You say it's increased standards, but the nostalgia people constantly have for older shows makes me doubt that's the only reason.
I feel like taking a break here. Not much, if anything, going on that interests me, and I'd like to do some self-reflecting, or something like that.

Get yourself better and come back. You will be missed.
I once let my bicycle key fell on the ground, right in a heap of leaves. I looked in that heap for hours. My key had fallen into another dimension, I'm sure.
