who got swagg? first art trade! by gianna156

Gianna, as the man who is in here, let me just say that you did an outstanding job at drawing my OC! You copied every detail that you s...

I think this is the first time I reviewed anything like this...d'aw well. I am a dummy!

Pour down the popcorn and pop the sodas, because you're in for another one of Ruben's ReviewsI am a dummy!

"C Students" is an animated series, created by the famous :iconanimatedjames:; known for making the Sonic Vs. MLP toons, the cartoon of what would happen if Tails say the infamous "What does the Fox say?" and, my personal favorite, the Weird Al Styled Brony Polka, which is, to coin a phrase, catchier than a butterfly net. But I'm not here to talk about those works of art, I'm here to talk about C Students; the animated series he premiered today which was said to be a reboot of his other series, Seniors. And let me start off by saying that his statement that these 2 series were basically the same, despite a few changes, is about as much of a lie as the statement "water is wet".

C Students stars a bunch of kids in high school. There's a guy named August; a depressive slump with the awesome hair of a lion, Penny; the new girl in school who is so cute that I squeed my pants when I first saw her, and last and least favorite is Kevin, a British guy who doesn't understand it when a girl says "no" and is, in the British version of English, A Massive Tosser.

Anyway, the first episode takes place in the first day of school. And the first thing we see, after August talks to his paranoid mommy, is Kevin talking to a girl named Scarlet who is the stuck up bitch of this high school. I swear, they're in ever TV high school ever. Roll Eyes

Anyways, we see that Scarlet hates Kevin (can't think why) and mutes him out of the conversation. And I do mean literally. This show has a lot of weird 4th wall breaks and visual gags in it and one is in the fact that Scarlet actually uses an app to mute Kevin out and then August unmutes him in a...interesting way. Sweating a little... Which is followed by Kevin texting Scarlet and having her arm come out of the phone with a gun.

Yeah, this show breaks both the 4th wall and dimensional 
physics. Not easy to do without creating a blackhole through your TV, I know, but this show pulls it off.

Next up, we meet Penny as she tries to make friends with Scarlet in the internet's most painfully awkward scene in existence. However, it's more awkward to me because every time I see it, I flashback to middle school--Not high school, Middle school--where I am basically in the same basket as Penny; awkward, shy and failing to make friends on the first shot. ^^; And in this shot, we see what kind of a person she is: the bitchiest bitch who's ever bitched in a bitchy bitching manner.

We're also introduced to her trio of "friends" who, while follow her like the sheep they are, have moments where they seem to show that they don't really like hanging out with her. Like the spits seconds where we see them doing their own thing before kissing up to Scarlet. Or the moment later on where they wave to Penny when Scarlet isn't looking at her and then scowl at her the next.

I have a feeling in my gut that either means that I shouldn't of had that breakfast burrito this morning or is a part of me that hopes that these girls will develop into their own people and will at one point go against Scarlet and call her out on the bitch that she is.

I hope it's the latter because if it's the burrito, it's gonna be a gassy Tuesday. Well, that and the girls are obviously smart enough to go again Scarlet.

And to be off topic, Scarlet's "friend" with the gold Egyptian looking necklace and the red dress is, in my opinion, the cutest of the 3 of them. :meow:

Anyways, after being rejected a seat of Scarlet and a few other students, Penny eventually meets up with August and Kevin and the friends at their table; Nicole the girl who has the emotions of a foggy dock and is, apparently, a lesbian, and the twins Dom and Tom. Which are short for Dominic and...Tominic. :unimpressed: Anyways, they sit in the table, despite the fact that Kevin doesn't want her to for some stupid reason. After words they let her sit and Kevin makes an ass of himself in the funniest way possible. :laughing:

Skip to the writing class and we meet my favorite character in this entire series thus far; Ms. Delight. She's the bipolar teacher that switches from sweet and gentle to sassy and bat scat insane just after a bit of dialogue. It's freaking hilarious in both C Students and Seniors. Mainly Seniors because it doesn't start out with her trying to not hold in her insanity. But then again, that's equally as funny to me. :D There's even a part where she goes down on a guy named Drew for not handing in an essay.

Seriously, if I had a teacher like her, I'd actually look forward to going to school. :laughing:

Anyways, the episode ends with 2 things: Penny crying because she's so frustrated about not fitting in with other girls and a music number that kind juggles the whole "you can do anything" moral with the reality that you actually can't. Not only is the song catchy but it's manages to juggle the 2 things perfectly in a way that makes actual sense.

And this is the part of the review where I would bring out the whole ?/6 stars, but you know what? I'm done with stats and ratings. I'm pretty sure me saying if the thing in question is good or not is necessary.

And C Students is definitely good. It's more of a B+ kind of thing. Sure, August has all of the emotion of a piece of toast without the butter, but his dry humor is one of his best qualities, along with being nice.

Yeah, Scarlet and Kevin are both equally unlikable, but complaining about that is like complaining about how My Little Pony is made to sell toys; that's the point.

Sure Penny's whole thing about not fitting in at high school is overdone, but it's relatable. I mean, I'll be a polkadotted peacock if I didn't had the same problem with Penny; not be accented by people the same gender as you and had most of your friends be the opposite.

C Students is a really good cartoon and I'm looking forward to future episodes. The only possible way you could not like this show is if you're the kind of stuck up idiot that can't except a simple bit of change (despite the fact that this show hasn't really changed all that much) or you're a uptight mother who doesn't like it when a show has a few curse words in it. :roll:

So, if you're neither, you'll like it. If you're both, go lick a scorpion's testicle. :stare:

:peace:
