Super Nuclear Presents

Remember the cartoons you loved as a kid? Do you, like us, remember mid-2000s Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network with a mix of fondness and terror – or, if you don’t, do you want to know what the fuss was about? Join Mary, David, and Ben as we revisit the cartoons that shaped us in an episode-by-episode deep dive, as well as the Internet fan culture as it was then and is now. How do these nostalgic shows hold up? What do we think of them now, as not kids but sad adults? How has the zeitgeist and Internet following evolved along with us? We set out to answer these questions and also to be incredibly hilarious and physically attractive. We started in 2017 with Return to the Past: A Code Lyoko Retrospective, which ran from 2017-2019 and makes up the first part of this feed. Second was The Ultimate Reprise, which ran from 2019-2020 and covers Oban: Star Racers. Now we’re on The Avatar Recycle, hot on the heels of Avatar: The Last Airbender’s Netflix debut! Join us wheresoever you like. Watching along is not necessary - but highly encouraged – and we try to keep spoiler free up to the current episode!

Welcome, friends old and new, to the first episode of The Ultimate Reprise: Earth's only podcast about Oban Star Racers!

Cool, angsty teen Eva Wei ditches school to go hang out with her dad (as cool teens are wont to do). Little does she realize that she, like you, is on the cusp of a Franime space adventure.

Join the Super Nuclear group (Mary, David, and Ben, for those of you who didn't spend the last three years hearing us babble about Code Lyoko) as they continue to race through the Dubya years, one semi-obscure French cartoon at a time. Now with more uncensored swears!

As I say in the intro here, this will be the last post (for now) in the Return to the Past feed. You can follow the rest of the series at theultimatereprise.com/rss ! Also note that we have changed our twitter handle to @super_nuclear.

If you've never seen Oban Star Racers, you should. We're not mincing words or hiding our peer pressure. If you love cartoons, if exquisite animation and cool ships and aliens and tightly crafted plotting and emotional drama are everything you could ever want out of your cartoons, you owe it to yourself to absorb this series - and ours, since that's what we're doing.

And if you have seen it? FANTASTIC. Here's a good reason to watch it again.

From the creative voices/loudmouths behind Return to the Past: A Code Lyoko Retrospective comes - that's right - a full second recap/rewatch podcast about a French animated cartoon from the early-mid 2000s co-created by Thomas Romain. Join Mary and David as they revisit and share a show that is incredibly powerful and special to them, and Ben as he watches it for pretty much the first time!

You can watch along with us through the Oban: Star Racers DVDs, or purchase the digital copies on Youtube or Amazon.

Our first episode drops Monday, September 9th!

Hello everyone! As promised, here is Ben's reading of a story David and Mary wrote together! It was prompted by the "Collaboration" episode of the podcast Start With This by Night Vale Presents, which you can find on your podcast app or at this address: http://www.nightvalepresents.com/startwiththis 

The story was derived from @dril's Skeleton War tweet, which you can find here: https://twitter.com/dril/status/361282749086175234

Tune in later this week for The Ultimate Reprise's trailer!
