Just ordered the Animated Series.

Finished the comic, and just wanted more Sam & Max. I love cartoons in general so I figured why not. Even if it's bad I won't care, I'll still enjoy it, but from what I've heard some of it is pretty good.

  • Mmh, at first that statement was for names in general. I meant that because I know it would annoy me if people constantly assumed I was called something else than what I just told them my name was.
    Otherwise, you're right that speculating about a fictional character isn't a problem. But since you seemed to be saying "well, it has to be short for something" I wanted to point out that actually, no, it doesn't.

    Yeah ok Avistew. It doesn't HAVE to be short for something. My mistake. :\

    And it's not that I don't think it's 'not enough of a name or something' :confused: I guess I'm just used to people with short names having longer versions of them.

  • Anyways....

    I just thought that if both their names ended with an 'EL' sound that would be a cute co-incidence, if it were true. There's no evidence to point in either direction.


    Oh and I'll add 'The Final Episode' to my list of favorites as well.

  • Actually, Max's full name was said to be Maximilian in "Abe Lincoln Must Die". S&M canon is not so much set in stone as traced in sand at the beach.

    Oh yeah. :eek:

  • @Catfish33 said: Honestly, I didn't think it was really that watered down. Were the comics and games really that much edgier?

    Oh yes. Especially those parts where both Sam and Max are participating in dialogs, "supporting" each other. This is the one aspect where I find TDP a bit lacking, too.

    Only by Bosco, if I recall correctly.

  • In 104, Max identifies himself as "Maximilian I, ruler of your quaint little nation". Or something like that. It's in 102 that Bosco calls them Samuel and Maximilian.

    ...Why does my spellchecker recognise Maximilian and not Max?

    I'd say it does the opposite.

    It may be in 102, but it also happens in 104, with the russian disguise. "Maximilian I" seems to have escaped me, though.

    I have read the comics just so you know.

    Whaaaaa?????

    How could constant scrutiny help someone's creative process?

    In my opinion it seems more like it creates a hive-mind atmosphere where everyone debates over topic after topic until a unanimous opinion is formed. How is that creative? I may be exaggerating a bit but oh wait oh no that's forbidden on these forums! Someone will take every word literally and tell me why it's wrong! *gasp*

    I'm sure you'll have some analytical way of answering this question and no offense but I don't really care, you're entitled to your opinion.


    Well another thread gone off topic. Sorry. And no I'm not all proud of sending threads off topic, which is apparently the current 'trend' around here. : |

  • I think the Animated series is great. It really captures the spirit of the original comics. Sure, the humor's not as edgy as the comics (which really aren't as "adult" as many claim), but it switches that out for cutaways and even more weirdness.
    And Sam & Max's personalities are spot-on. Especially Sam. Don't get me wrong, I love Telltale's games, but their version of Sam is different from the one seen in the comics. Not the case with the toon.

    I haven't seen all the episodes myself yet, but my favorites are probably "the Second Show Ever" and "Bad Day on the Moon".
