It talks about the flaws in the world, how life can take a turn for the worst, how we as people feel like what's the point of anything. The scouts tie them up and threaten them with weapons made of common objects like protractors and pencils. But the comedy is not the main focus of the episode. Alan has lost faith in humanity and turned the world black and white. And all of this is happening because one particular kid has given up on everything and that kid is Alan. The jokes with black and white were clever and the story was thrilling for me who had the good fortune of not watching the preview. And as someone who listens to to some music that talks about similar things like depression and life itself, i have never heard one that is so realistic.
After that, scout troopers ambush Gumball and Darwin but their plan didn't last long after failing to work for badges. And they didn't have a scene where the universe changes his voice like on The Kids and The Copycats? There's a fascinating sense of ingenuity to how everything unfolds. Alan ultimately confesses that he's lost hope in humanity because it never seems to change, and it's a particularly potent remark, doubly so when it gets pinned on Gumball, his repeated, unsolicited antagonist. Important details about the plot or story are up ahead The episode starts off with , and watching Elmore News. We then see the , where the football teams and the crowd supporting them turn grey, meaning that neither can be distinguished from the other. The agrees, but instead says he wishes to take up embroidery. It's one of those endearing episodes that did things right, the conflict wasn't too sappy and was carried without edginess, the moral handled important concepts like faith and happiness in a fair way and don't messed up with the comedy of the episode who was in my opinion on ~~fleek~~ point.
And, yes, the more you work at it The worse it seems to get Looking at the news Can make you break out in a sweat That's the way life is so you gotta deal with it There's not much else to say right now To lift your spirit Tell me how's all that Suppose to make me feel better? I'm sure individual jokes may have been reused here and there across the series, but I think there's also some level of relevancy to the episode that's noticeable, like it had a message to deliver at just the right time. The video will stop till all the gaps in the line are filled in. The boys easily escape from the loose ropes draped around their wrists, and beat up the scouts. My life's unraveling Just like threads pulled from a sweater There's no sunshine in my future It is gray, desaurated Tell me why I shouldn't feel so deflated Because. First, the episode starts on an ominous foot as the world turns to black and white; we don't really know what's happening, and the episode uses this relative, brooding ambiguity to set the tone of the episode. . It feels like it's missing a third act, or something more in the beginning or middle.
Maybe it's not flawless, one can argue that the first and second part don't do a perfect transition due the first part having less comedic undertones or the plot not being as thrilling as it could be but I agree with your note as it's pretty well done overall. I guess that's what you meant by it being more like a short story, and I suppose I've just come to expect more events in an episode, rather than very long albeit entertaining sequences. Gumball, after all, in its own strange little way, is a celebration of life and the world we live in and all of its ups and downs. If the video stops your life will go down, when your life runs out the game ends. He claims that no matter what he does, the world will never be perfect and thus attempting to help out is pointless.
It's through these little moments, too, that we can piece together what's actually going on. The scene cuts to Rocky being violently attacked by all the girls. The prevents them from proceeding, and explains that the boy who fed the ducks quit, and shows them the situation in the park: several cops being mauled by tiny little yellow ducks. According to Ben Bocquelet, The Downer was supposed to be darker and more cynical, but, in his eyes, he thought it was lame and changed a lot of the original script. Beyond just being an aesthetic choice or a gimmick, the monochromatic palette the show uses to contextualize this is powerful. Darwin gets the two out of their predicament by offering the scouts badges, upon which Timmy tells them that their scoutmaster quit, and they found his stash of badges. And I can't think of many other episodes that have been able to wield it as strongly as here.
And there's always going to be something that drags you down, and it's always going to feel like something is out to get you. Even though this episode had good jokes and a great song, I still found it unfulfilling. The Watterson brothers decide to sing to reignite his love for everything, showing Alan that he'll always have happy memories to get him through the bad times, and that the world needs him to keep the world happy and positive, and to fix it when it falls into a bad state. This season is getting peaks and troughs and this is definitely one of the highest peaks were all their comedy and plot elements blend well together. He decides to go out without asking more, deploys an , and the scene cuts to him being beaten by every woman in the vicinity. First, they walk past the , where Rocky is on Trawlr.
A gas truck smashes through the situation, taking several of the cars and the Doughnut Sheriff away. She is then attacked by a monkey, who tackles her and knocks her behind a car. Gumball points out that if they just found the rest of the badges, they hadn't learned the skills required to earn them, such as knot-tying. The Faith: At the start of the episode, Elmore is turning black and white. The number of gaps depends of the selected game mode or exercise.
Gumball realises that they are not being hunted, but rather scouted by the scouts, led by. As you call it, it was a barrier hatching episode, like an omen of what is about to happen, an unprecedent mindblowing ending that only happens with the most bold of the series and my guess it's going to be the major 4th wall break of all the time in the history of animation. They ask him what the matter is, and he explains that he has lost his faith in the world, claiming that people never change. If you make mistakes, you will lose points, live and bonus. Where I find the episode's message particularly affecting, though, is that it rings true with a touching sense of universality: the world isn't a perfect place, and it'll never be a perfect place. The scene then shows a street in town, where Gumball and Darwin are walking.
Unfortunately, the Wattersons' set goes black and white just as the color is shown. Be aware: both things are penalized with some life. I can see the parallels too, but it wasn't as political as people made it out to be. The two sides of the crowd argue and start throwing things and shouting at one another. They hear car horns outside their house and look out to see a traffic jam. Rain is pouring down, and Alan looks miserable.
