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. Then we started on The Avatar Recycle, hot on the heels of Avatar: The Last Airbender’s Netflix debut - and now, after a 2.5-year hiatus, we're back with Titan Talk, covering the 2003 Teen Titans animated series! 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!

We had a bit of confusion about what this episode was called, all the way up until nearly the end of the recording. Mary and Ben could have sworn it was called Thunder and Lightning. David has the clearest head of all of us and knew from day 1 that it was Forces of Nature, and so we stand corrected.

But Thunder and Lightning themselves weren't always forces of nature! Here we learn for the first time about just how different these two knuckleheads are from their comic counterparts, AND get a bit of a different sort of conflict where the antagonists aren't necessarily villainous, or even evil. 

Also Slade is in yellowface. He's wearing a mask over his mask that somehow has a working mouth. And is using magic?? What even is this. 

We discuss some later series spoilers between 50:00-55:00, so skip through that point if you're watching along with us for the first time.
