Very funny trailer: this probably represents the cherry picked most vulgar moments, and is not representative of the entire tone, which looks PG-13 like the rest of the CR branded materials.
I don't know, you only get one f-bomb in a PG-13 movie and Chutney in just the highlights of C3 E8 must have dropped a blitz's worth.

Not that I mind, I'm just saying it's probably going to be harder than PG-13 (but no nudity, of course, because this is America, dammit, and if there is one thing we can't have in our blood soaked, profanity laden cartoons, it's nipples!).

This is cut from a 12 episode season: spread throughout, probsbly.TV-16, no problem.

90% of the gore and language in the trailer seemed to be from the first two episodes (the original story and not the Briarwoods stuff) so they might be frontloading that a bit. But I'm not sure I'd say the Briarwoods is likely to be PG-13, this is an arc where entering the main city the party sees people dressed up to look like them hanging on the tree in the center of town, and well there's not really a gnome population in that town so the villains had to make do.

The Expanse started as a home-brew game. Then was turned into a series of very successful novels. And got a boost from George RR Martin. Then it became a TV series. Then it became an RPG. It didn’t start as a TV series that was an adaptation of an existing RPG.
Fair enough. Wasn't sure - thus my "?"

Clearly, I am a casual fan. Appreciate the correction.

I'm not a big cartoon guy. But this already looked aimed at big of an older audience. I didn't watch the first campaign of CR, but I'm curious and will surely give this a try.

Hay, plenty of us nerds are over 50. That doesn't mean we turn into old fuddy-duddys who faint at blood or swearing!
Well, I don't faint at blood or swearing but I am turning into an old fuddy-duddy.

Until fairly recently, people expected that a cartoon was meant for children and would be surprised and upset when the content was not kid appropriate.

I think we are getting past that and audiences increasingly do not assume that just because it is a cartoon that it should be kid friendly and they pay attention to ratings and take whatever other precautions they would take with a non-cartoon films and series. Certainly some may be surprised or upset, but these people are either new to streaming services or are a bit thick.
 


I've never watched CR (how does anyone find the TIME?) but I'll certainly watch this. If it turns out to be decent, it'll be a great series to point people at when they ask 'what's this D&D thing about, anyway?' I've got a fair bit more faith in it on that front than I do the D&D movie, at least.

I've heard alot of really bad stuff about both, especially Wheel of Time which breaks my heart because I loved the Wheel of Time series. Damn Hollywood, I hope it gets it's naughty word together.

?

Wheel of Time show was awesome in my opinion, and I say that as someone who tried to read the first books a few years ago and dropped it because I found it to be such a slog.

No, seriously. The only reason I’ve been able to finally power through the first book and a half was because I finished watching the show.

I haven't read the books. I might. But the series I liked. I had no idea what the whole thing was about till then.

Which is stunning since cartoons for adults have been around since the 1920's (Betty Boop wasn't for the kiddies, she was for daddy and the Flintstones were cigarette spokesmen) and yet you still see Attack on Titan DvDs in the family section in Walmart and Target.
 

Fairly recently? The Simpsons started in 1987. That is 33 years ago, when D&D was still owned by TSR. South Park started in 1997. Just to name a few.
Betty Boop, 1930. Was that aimed at Children? The Flintstones (1960) had a lot of adult humour. Animation went through a phase of being "for children" round about the 1970s, but adult animation has been a thing since the zoatrope (1833).

I blame 80's cinematography where we suddenly decided that colors are for children and adults should only watch grays, browns or color-corrected greens and blues.

To be honest, I could barely get through the first book of WoT. Even so, the first episode left me scratching my head wi some of the changes.

Was that an 80's thing? I thought it was more of a early 2000's trend. Harry Potter being one of the worst offenders.
