02:27

started having those feelings again of

02:29

like wow there's a lot about this show I

02:32

do not like that I mentioned in my first

02:34

video number one being the writing I

02:36

their dialogue I don't like the story it

02:41

all feels very contrived feels very

02:44

obnoxious feels very like just this

02:46

superiority complex especially for Velma

02:49

she is such a self-insert character for

02:52

Mindy Kaling the creator of the show oh

02:55

Mindy you were a better writer in the

02:57

03:45

absorb them and their Stakes or their

03:47

motives or their growth it it just keeps

03:50

moving too quickly and we are told not

03:53

really shown how these characters evolve

03:55

or grow just multiple scenes of dapne

10:05

the artists who work on this show are

10:07

doing jobs same thing with a lot of the

10:09

other folks involved if you want to take

10:11

issue take issue with Mindy the show

10:13

creators the the head Executives the the

10:16

head writers do talk to them you know

10:18

focus on them you know they're the ones

10:21

who have the mantle of responsibility

10:23

but as far as like people who are just

10:25

like hey I do in-betweens I do cleanups

10:27

I'm doing some of the character designs

10:29

artists are just doing their jobs cool

10:31

off I think the art direction for the

10:33

show is pretty damn good the animation

10:35

can be kind of you know wonky here in

10:37

there and and static though also at

10:39

times surprisingly fluid there was a

10:41

scene where Norville got like his eye

10:45

like penetrated by some like ghost

10:47

finger and it was very visceral I look

10:49

away I was like ah and I watched it

10:51

again I'm like wow this looks very good

10:53

this is fluid good animation so the show

10:56

has its moments visually the visual

10:59

aren't the main issue of the show I said

11:02

this in my first review for Velma I have

11:05

no problem with the race swapping who

11:06

cares that's not the problem it is the

11:09

writing of the characters what they're

11:11

about the journey they go on are they

11:13

likable are they fun things you you can

11:16

write fun unlikable characters always

11:20

study in Philadelphia is like a

11:21

quintessential example even characters

11:24

from The Office like Michael Scott can

11:25

be an absolute ass at times but still

11:28

you can feel athetic enough to him or

11:30

have fun with him being obnoxious and

11:32

seeing come upends but for Velma it's

11:34

like no it's just nothing but obnoxious

11:37

behavior and I don't feel invested in

11:40

your character Arc which by the way is

11:42

like H I guess ghosts do exist okay

11:45

let's talk about that then so Scrappy

11:48

shows up the end of the show this entire

11:52

time Scrappy was the one behind the

11:54

murders uh Scrappy was part of some

11:56

military project to like spy on kids

12:00

uh he started killing these men who are

12:02

involved in the project itself um

12:05

there's also like this mom character of

12:08

of Velma like her stepmother who was

12:10

also involved on the murders as well I

12:13

had a hunch it was her but she was also

12:15

involved in the military and I guess she

12:16

was caught up in these Affairs but like

12:19

ultimately Scrappy is this experiment

12:21

gone wild who starts biting off the

12:24

dicks of people who starts going on a

12:28

manslaughter ulating Velma and

12:30

ultimately killed Velma and Scrappy

12:33

though he was like possessed by Velma at

12:35

the end and that like plated him or

12:38

pacified him I guess I don't know he was

12:41

he was defeated but velma's dead so

12:44

here's the thing is like at the end of

12:45

the show velma's like I'm sorry Daphne

12:48

uh even though You' become a bit more of

12:49

an astrologist and more involved with

12:51

the occult um maybe the supernatural

12:55

does exist cuz I'm a ghost and also Fred

12:58

wasn't wrong about his mom being a ghost

13:00

and there is an afterlife and at the end

13:02

of the show it's like okay are we

13:04

wrapping this up is there oh there's a

13:06

loc end so currently as it stands there

13:10

could be a season two of Velma

13:13

officially not one season cut in half

13:15

but an actual season 2 and I'm sure some

13:18

folks right now are like saber spark

13:20

you're talking about it you're giving it

13:21

attention it's going to create a season

13:23

2 Guys you give me far too much credit

13:25

for my reach all right whether it be

13:28

folks on Twitter

13:29

or or folks here on YouTube there is a

13:32

massive demographic of folks who

13:34

actually watch this outside of the

13:36

social media who are the ones who mostly

13:39

decide if there's going to be a second

13:40

season and they're not watching this

13:42

video I mean if anything this video

13:44

should convince folks to not watch it um

13:47

because I don't think it's worth

13:48

checking out uh go watch Mr Incorporated

13:51

that was much more Nuance that actually

13:52

took the characters of the scooo

13:54

franchise and did something very

13:56

different with them that felt rewarding

13:58

but familiar

13:59

cuz like currently with the Velma show

14:01

it's like you ruined Velma you ruined

14:03

dhne Fred felt obnoxious as well but at

14:06

least he had a little bit more of a

14:08

character Arc at the end norville's here

14:11

too okay there's Easter eggs for other

14:14

Scooby-Doo characters okay fine it was

14:16

not a fun show that's the thing it's

14:19

hard to have fun with this series it's

14:21

so full of itself and sounds like holier

14:24

than thou or or smarter than you or

14:26

trying to be smarter oh keep up with our

14:29

W witty dialogue and our observation

14:32

humor and we're always breaking the

14:34

fourth wall as far as our meta

14:36

commentary and writing goes okay fine

14:38

but can we have an immersive sincere

14:40

moment please please so I can feel

14:42

invested in the story or the characters

14:44

whatsoever just once we got it once kind

14:47

of with like Fred again rising up to his

14:50

mother that's about it I guess we

14:53

Scrappy do which on a meta way there is

14:55

some humor to that where it's like okay

14:57

what do we do bringing Scrappy okay that

14:59

kind of hearkens back to the old school

15:00

days where they're like how do we

15:02

improve ratings bringing Scrappy D so I

15:04

do find that amusing I do find it funny

15:07

that Velma was killed by Scrappy But

15:09

ultimately this does not feel like a

15:11

love letter to the Scooby-Doo franchise

15:14

it feels more like a threatening letter

15:16

instead from some ex who's still

15:17

stalking you and creeping on you so

15:20

ultimately those are my thoughts on

15:21

Velma Court unquote season 2 it's not

15:25

worth checking out it's not the war

15:27

crime we think it is either but it's not

15:29

good it should serve as a reminder that

15:32

when you're trying to do your own take

15:35

on a franchise that's an evergreen

15:38

franchise uh you got to bring something

15:40

sincere to the table VMA there is no fun

15:44

there is no sincerity it's just way too

15:46

obnoxious for its own good so will they

15:48

make a season 2 maybe probably when it

15:52

comes to Hollywood when the right names

15:54

are attached to a project that's usually

15:57

enough to push the needle for Executives

15:59

to go oh Mindy's a part of it okay sure

16:01

we'll do it you know versus taking a uh

16:04

a risk or a Leap of Faith with something

16:07

that might be much more substantial and

16:10

and worthy of that you know potential

16:12

like coyote versus Acme but then they go

16:14

no it's more of a liability we we don't

16:17

want to take a risk we want some

16:19

reassurance we don't want to waste money

16:21

uh get rid of it so in that vein you

16:23

know it sucks sucks to suck and maybe

16:27

eventually Warner will wake up to to the

16:29

fact that they need creative people and

16:31

artist and to take risk in order to

16:34

create a new Renaissance of

16:35

entertainment for their streaming

16:37

service and and shows and movies for

16:39

audiences to watch so I don't know what

16:42

the future holds but hopefully it's not

16:44

Velma season 2 and hopefully we see a

16:47

return to form where they actually do uh
