You're free to disagree with me on this but for me, dialogue can really make or break a TV show. It can bring out the best (or worse) of characters via foils and banter and even a character that lacks in certain areas can shine even a little with a few good lines.
It's this reason (among others) that kinda makes it hard to enjoy Pokemon DP and BW's dubs (and JPN version to an extent) since the dialogue and the delivery seems so bland, dull and lifeless. Yeah, it's a kid's show but I grew up on shows that put honest effort into the character's lines so they'd be entertaining so it being a kids show is honestly a feeble excuse.
What are your thoughts on this as a viewer?
