Thread: Dan Vs. The Lack of a Dan Vs. Thread.

    Default Dan Vs. The Lack of a Dan Vs. Thread.

    It's on the Hub and is awesome, but nobody talks about it because ponies melted their brains or some damn thing.

    Here's the first episode.

    That was pretty good. Love the bizarre random humor. Perhaps I'll start watching more of it once I'm done catching up with said brain-melting ponies.

    You know, I used to think the Hub was just some random hodgepodge of old syndicated shows that the station somehow got the rights to. But now with this and MLP, I don't know anymore.

    GI Joe Renegades and Transformers Prime are good also.

    Wait, so does Dan's car get damaged in every episode?

    That's a major running gag, but there are a few episodes where it doesn't happen. Dan Vs Ye Olde Shakespeare Theatre doesn't have any car damage that I recall.

    One thing I love about the series is how off-hand comments can lead to something much bigger later on. Dan vs The Salvation Armed Forces is a really good example of that. Pay attention to Dan's references to Grandma as well since those build into a small story as time goes by.

    Why doesn't this show get more popularity around here? It's hilarious. I just finished watching the third episode. God, it was hysterical. A dentist SV? That was about a thousand times funnier than the wolf man existing or satanic New Mexicans. It was so surreal... The whole chase scene.. the doctor's villainous laughter.... the hideout.. "dento-robots"... I also liked how one of the buttons said insurance forms.

    I was wondering about the grandma ever since the policeman mentioned the letters in the second episode. And then again in the third episode with the angry phone call. I can't wait to find out more.

    Skimming over the list of episodes on wikipedia, I'm definitely looking forward to the ninja and canada ones because a part of me just can't help loving seeing those two things get mocked.

    Dan vs The Ninja was the first one I saw and is still one of my favorites along with Dan vs The Animal Shelter.

    Dan vs. New Mexico?

    What?

    Okay that was geographically inaccurate...

    Though the bit about the Pagan sacrifices is actually true.

    Finished watching two more episodes of Dan Vs. Seriously though, why don't more people like this show around here?

    Dan vs The Ninja:
    Spoiler:

    lolol Cookie Shuriken. I could see that being a weapon Chrissie might use.

    Chris is gonna get poisoned a lot in this series isn't he?

    As a fellow Asian with Asian parents, I found the way in which the ninja clan gets wiped out to be fucking hilarious. Too cheap? YES WE ARE.

    Wow talk about awkward ending.

    Dan vs. Animal Shelter
    Spoiler:

    lolol poisoned meatloaf. Of course.

    Oh interesting, it's Dan's list. I saw two things that caught my eye on his notepad: a guy named Ted and a monocle manufacturing company. I hope this will tie into a later episodes somehow.

    That scene with Mr. Mumbles just killed me for both the rainbows and how Dan seemed completely OOC. "Cover your ears!" Cute. Funny how Dan feels betrayed by Mr. Mumbles at the end. I wonder if we'll still seem him later because I'd very much like to see him. Plus that name is awesome.

    It takes away time from talking about ponies.

    That bus scene is one of my favorites. "We are the ninjas! The mighty, mighty ninjas!"

    I think there's a reference in a later episode to Ted being a former friend of Chris and Dan, but I don't recall which one it was.

    And the best scene with the list is in Dan vs the Barber, which I highly recommend, and is one of the most cold-blooded things we see Dan do in the entire series so far. "MIKE!" *scritch* And Mr. Mumbles does indeed have a major role in the show, especially in Dan Vs. Technology, so look forward to that.

    I also highly recommend Dan vs Dan, which is where that courtroom picture comes from.

    "You are hereby ordered to reappear in this courtroom on Thursday at 8AM."
    "Can you make it eleven? I like to sleep in."

    Clearly what this thread needs is more awesome fanart. I can't quite wrap my head around the thought of pony-fied Dan though.

    That explosion was glorious. I could picture Franky doing the thumbs up pose like he did when he blew up Vegapunk's lab. Nice to see some semblance of continuity. Mr. Mumbles is just too precious.

    If nothing else, this show has given us one kickass billboard



    But then again, Hub seems to be having a monopoly on billboards lately.

    I also like the more subtle billboard that they made:

    I like the show. I've begun to get hooked on the Hub, I watch this, MLP, Transformers: Prime, and good Ol' Jem and the Holograms most days. And occasionally Family Ties and Wonder Years for nostalgia.

    Season two will start this month with the aptly titled Dan vs Halloween. Tomorrow's episode is Dan vs The Burgerphile so it will probably air on the 29th.

    In honor of the occasion, I'm posting this Dan Vs. Silent Hill fanart that I ran across.
