    When is Season 2 rolling around for this show? Though I'm worried if this wait is worth it or not - I had my reasons for being hard on this show.

    The guy (the sender of the prediction) made a spelling mistake. What he was going to say was "I'm expected for later seasons, that Sashi will meet her royal ancestor (the Princess of Demensions) who kindly similar to her."'

    UPDATE: May have to discuss this is a separate post.

    @JoeMabbon - no argument, especially since this show would need 2 more seasons to really do this well at all and not be cliche as all get out. Too bad this show's only got one more season to burn through, if it happens anytime soon, that is...

    2017 will be a long wait, but that's life... So, here's hoping Season 2 can step up this show's game, that's for sure. I say that because I want to continue to look forward to this, as well as Tangled, Big Hero 6, and Ducktales.

    Honestly, I'm just weary this show and its characters try too hard (for its own good) to be funny, which has always been an issue with this show for me...

    Like Gaben said "hopefully it would have been worth the wait".

    Hmph, I was not amused by that trailer. I wasn't all that amused by season 1 and I still feel the same amount of apathy for season 2. Gatordragon out. [​IMG]

    OK, the sitcom episode was great
    I love how they were trying to solve the problem with common sense

    Season 1 definitely had better stand-alone eps, but season 2 had GREAT character moments and a down-right great ending.

    I watched this show from start to finish and I can say that it's definitely one of the most underrated cartoons of this decade. The humor, character developement, and stories were handled better than Star Vs., making the show better than the former, IMO. And I'm glad the finale gave the show a nice closure.

    Overall, Penn Zero gets a B+ in my book. It wasn't Gravity Falls amazing, but still a solid cartoon. Sucks that we won't be seeing reruns anytime soon, though.

    That ending to the cartoon is going to stick with me for a good while. Talk about a Gainax ending!

    Not everything is going to be Gravity Falls and that's OK, but it is amusing to think about that both these shows only got two seasons. Somehow, they just managed to stretch Gravity Falls' two seasons across like five years.

    Penn Zero though I think was underrated and was quite fun and clever at times. Not to mention you had a topnotch cast of A-list talent. I mean the lead is Silicon Valley's Thomas Middleditch. The villain was Alfred Molina for crying out loud. Then you had guest spots with the likes of Beau Bridges, Sigourney Weaver, the late Adam West, Wanda Sykes, Sean Astin (as Blaze). They really got the most out of this show.

    I think the biggest mistake though is not starting the story from the beginning. I think if they did that instead of throwing us in at the middle, the show would've been paced a lot better and come off better overall.

    I think the other problem though is how it was poorly programmed and scheduled. But again, at least we got two seasons and they got to finish it--kinda, sorta.

    Also...Penn and Sashi? Really? It sort of came out of nowhere. I mean there was the episode where I sort of thought Penn was jealous of Sashi crushing on Blaze. But I think they could've built it up or seed it a little more.

    That felt more of an ego-thing with Penn wanting the spotlight. Like that second Clown-world episode.

    That's because they had to wrap up the series in season 2 with less episodes than in season 1. We probably would've had more standalone episodes in season 2 if the amount of episodes were the same as season 1's.
