I agree Matt: I think the scripts in DP and BW are really bland in all honesty IMO. I really am not fond of TPCi's dub anyway (it makes me very depressed just hearing these lifeless voices for the characters), and it still makes me cringe whenever I hear Ash or Team Rocket speak in BW (I dunno- it's really ruined the show for me). I just sit there going -_- through most of the episode, bored and fall asleep about 10 minutes through. The beginning of BW had my hopes up but now I'm back to my DP standards in terms of, "Well this is boring. I wonder if this will ever end."

With this cast, I'm bored silly and my ears ache. And Cathcart's alliteration count is irritating in DP too and it's really pathetic. BW is just so...lifeless...like they're completely one-dimensional characters with those scripts and dialogue. I cannot take Jimmy Zoppi/James Carter Cathcart's James seriously at all either: even Eric's homosexual James in AG was better at being serious than Jimmy's ever been. The dialogue is definitely bland now, and the voice acting compounds the problem tenfold from TPCi's cast. I don't think they'll ever improve to the point where they're actually enjoyable with these characters. I'm used to them but I absolutely dislike them nonetheless and the lifeless dialogue definitely does not help either in DP or BW...

I really wanna beat that Surge, but I also don't want to force you to evolve if you'd be happier staying the way you are now." -- OS Ash, ESS
