It's not just her, there are entire episodes that are unfunny and "dramatic". Pigeon Man, the one where that dude learns to read, the Asian guy and his daughter or whatever. So I don't get it, either.

I kinda agree. I watched a few episodes of Hey Arnold nearly a year ago, but I hated the season 3 episode Full Moon. In that episode, Arnold got punished a lot for something that he didn't even do and his so-called friends turned on him. That episode put me off watching the show ever again.

Evidently HA is'nt for people with thin skin.

Nothing wrong with the show being a bit slice of life and harsher. That's what set it apart from the usual wackyness associated with Nick.

You're right, there's nothing wrong with that. There's nothing wrong with people not being into it for those reasons, either.

There is something wrong with people getting an air of superiority over their taste in cartoons, though.

I'm of the opinion that hating a few episodes doesn't make an entire show bad if you still enjoy the majority of it, but Zarius, the show has enough fans and doesn't need you to whiteknight for it. It's just a cartoon, it doesn't have feelings. :V

I agree. I was a bit harsh on the show. The episode Full Moon put me off watching it for a while, but I did rematch more of the series and thought that it was boring most of the time. I think I've simply outgrown it.

The cartoon is a bit overrated, in my opinion. It's not as good as I remembered it. It's alright in small doses, but gets repetitive after a while. I wasn't a big fan of the show even as a kid. I just thought it was fun to watch every now and then.

It's happening. A TV movie will resolve the dangling plot threads.

I am glad that Nickelodeon is finally listening to other demographics. Hopefully, the movie will stay true to the show.

The creator is producing and writing the movie, so that'll be no big feat

Or their art for that matter.

On topic, this is great news for fans of the show.

Next we need a release date and then a trailer. I have been looking forward to this since the show quietly cancelled with a fart. It seemed destined to be one of the many projects slated but tabled and buried into the bins of history.

Given how those actors are adults now, I wonder if this story will incorporate a time jump.
