    Not really.

    Yeah but doing it right after The Legend of Korra? Coincidence I think not

    lmao, alright, remove the shock horror part. It isn't a one in a million chance compared to other shows.

    Want to explain? I can see you like talking on forums so go ahead.

    You're right, I spoke too in-depth there, everybody should already know that overall, most TV show's listen to some form of critisism from fans.

    You see, now you're doing exactly what I did. Saying something that isn't proven.

    No, again, it pretty much is.

    Because the rare handful of shows that come back from the dead either do so because of huge toy sales or huge home video sales. Guess what show did neither?

    Again, that's not the case. On the occasions where a showrunner actually does an interview, he or she will usually thank the fans for their support and input but if pressed will almost unilaterally deny using ideas from fans and in some cases outright espouse doing so, saying that what the fans often think they want from a show will very rarely result in actual good material.

    The Xiaolin Showdowns are going to be in 3-D.
    ... not sure if want ...

    I'll approach it with cautious optimism. I'm assuming this will air on CN like the original series?

    Too bad, live with it and stop complaining already. Though I will miss the replaced actors and actresses, more of a good thing is never bad...unless it's like a drug and in this case, it is not.

    Gotta love how most of the posts are people ranting XD. Anyway i'll watch it since i loved the old one. As for art changes I see nothing different besides the 3D which looks interesting. Maybe its due to be not seeing this show bin 6 years but they look the same

    Xiaolin Showdown was one of my favorite shows so I'll check out Xiaolin Chronicles as well. I wonder who will be back and who will not? I wonder if secondary villains like Vlad will still be around? Katnappe and Tubbimura seem to be.

    I wouldn't care if Vlad didn't appear again. He was interesting in his debut, but after that, he was treated as a Jack add-on. I'm sure he'll make an appearance, since those two will be.

    I can't wait to see the Sapphire Dragon (or whatever they rename it). That was always my favourite Shen Gong Wu.

    Oh wait there's that boomerang that Sokka used... that's still Avatar: The Legend of Aang.

    Uh I kinda forgotten what type of Shen Gong Wu there was. ^_^;

    I know haha, I think that's why I liked it so much because it was a deadly weapon.

    The Sapphire Dragon returned to the show in it's third Season, the Bean enemy converted it with a fear Shen Gong Wu and made a huge sapphire monster. There's no reason not to think it won't show up in the new series. The same with every other item.

    The Golden Tiger claws were badass

    is the monkey staff still going to constantly be in the hands of Jack Splicer? cause that was always good for a laugh. also the Shen Gong Wu that let you talk to animals was pretty cool.

    Man there have been a lot of reboots of early 2000s shows lately. First Teen Titans, next Code Lyoko, and now this. Hell, while not necessarily a show, even Toonami is back!

    So, this is premiering tomorrow. I'm fairly hyped myself, I wonder if we'll get explanation on the name changes(I know it's copyright, but intertwining it with in the story would be nice.) for example, perhaps the Shen Gong Wu(Haven't spelled that in a long time lol) powered up thus got stronger names(Orb of Tornami -----> Orb of Torpedo). As for the new character, Ping Pong, not sure what to say on him. I hope he has his own standout personality in his own right and isn't a rehash of Omi's, I also want to know why Raimundo isn't leader anymore and how old the characters are/how much they've aged. Eagerly awaiting that, the new voices may take some time to get use to but TBH, I'm not a huge crier over voices in animation. I usually adjust fairly easily, the quality of the show is more my concern. The art style is as nice as I remember it to be and I do hope they keep up the nice comedic moments that are well done and the amazing action.

    I for one, am greatly excited for Xiaolin Chronicles. I loved Xiaolin Showdown, and while I'm not crazy about some of the changes, I won't let it stop me from watching a show I greatly loved. It made my Saturdays mornings eventful during my High School years. To bad I don't have a DVR anymore. I'll have to cancel some of my usual Monday night stuff, but well worth it.

    This is starting in a few hours? Hopefully I'll be able to see it tomorrow. As long as it has the humour and heart of the original series, I'll get over the renaming of Shen Gong Wu and the animation changes. The voices better not be too different. :/

    Be this a reboot or a sequel, I don't really care... what I like is the show is returning. I love when shows I like return, which is funny because I was just thinking of this show not too long ago XD

    I missed episode one, enjoyed episode three and two. It seems the show starts off with a small arc. of picking out a new monk. Willow and PingPong are the two who are in the running, Pingpong doesn't seem to be on Omi's good side.(For the most part, I'm enjoying the new character a good bit) Meanwhile, Willow is pretty much a ***** in sheep's clothing. So far, it looks like she's successfully fooling everyone. Also, regarding Chase's wager during the fight, I absolutely thought that was weird and a bit vain thing for him to wager his looks as they are of more worth than Chase and Jack's "knickknacks" it seems a bit weird. Kimiko, Raimundo and Clay's new voices and Dojo's little makeover will take some time to get used to. But I'll adjust, like Jack's though. So far, it seems like the show will start off with a bang of the Wu being stolen. Which would be interesting. With five minutes left, I could easily see Chase and Shadow being successful. Also love Shadow so far, makes for a great villain.
