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!

Ah yes, here we are. One of the Famously Bad episodes of Avatar, which means it would be a low average in any other show. Even as we try not to judge it by its reputation and/or memes, we still find it... condescending? A bit tone deaf? Paints centrists as the real victims? We're not quite sure what they're actually trying to say here. 

But it's okay that this one's a bit of a stinker, because on our end, MARY GOT A CAT! Say hello to Ness, of whom pictures can absolutely be found on our Twitter. And stick around to listen as we avoid talking about this episode by any means necessary, including crabs, "Weed la Weed," and the the Adam Sandler movies we maybe tolerate.

First and foremost I have to deeply DEEPLY apologize for the lateness of this episode, I had it and it was up on Patreon and I just straight up forgot to put it on the main feed. ._. Thank you all for your patience!

Welcome to the Secret Tunnel, the Rec Room-alike where we take a break from painstakingly recapping a show in order to talk about side material, fan ephemera, and really just whatever the heck we want. This time, we're diving deep into the world of New Avatar Memes, which we are so very grateful for, and sharing some character tidbits from the artbook...
 
But first, let's talk about Code Lyoko! It's coming to French Netflix (the only real Netflix, according to the French), and you'd better believe we have opinions on that. Delight as we surprise you with more facts about Noam Kaniel than you could possibly be interested in. Then, we dive into the one topic you've always wanted to hear about: how flying bison do it. You perv.

Listeners, hide your bananas, cause we're about to meet some guerillas.

This episode is all about Jet, the freedom fighter dude who is definitely NOT literally just Spike Spiegel from Cowboy Bebop, and Jess is here to discuss how cool his hook swords are and whether or not he would vape in real life (he would). Also, in light of all the strongly-worded emails we've recently received, we've decided to bring back Vriskourse. Lucky you!

A couple of notes:

- There are minor ATLA spoilers at 1:58:15. 

- We learned about Chadwick Boseman's death while recording, and discussed it for several minutes. This begins at 1:02:30.
