    Actually this show is not that bad if you give it a chance. Anyone else seen it? For some reason I really like all 3 of cartoon networks recent round of series. Chowder and Flapjack are just silly and random in a good way and drama island is just kinda decent.

    Just curious what anyone else who has seen it thinks!

    I've watched it. Everything you love (or love to hate) about reality tv, in cartoon form. Sceming, hook ups, stupidity, whining, dangerous and/or stupid challenges, they even have the Probst-esqe host down.

    As for Flapjack: MADNESS!

    It's been on Teletoon for a while now. You guys haven't even seen the best episodes yet!! (NO SPOILERS PLEASE)

    A special airs later this year on Teletoon to bridge season's one and two.
    If you like TDI, I'm sure you'll like Total Drama Action! Hopefully Cartoon picks it up for you.

    Sorry, had to go for the shameless network plug.

    I hope the fat guy stays around... I kinda like almost all the characters and none of them are totally worthless.

    Glad to hear it at least has 2 seasons made so I can expect to see a lot more...

    And flapjack... ADVENTURE! lol.

    It's actually a Canadian show. Produced by our version of CN, Teletoon. Anyway I've seen most of it. I like Duncan.

    Yeah, I even saw some episodes of Flapjack, too. And it's okay. It's weird, but it's okay. Total Drama Island is just garbage. Basically, it's just an animated version of a reality show. That's it. Nothing more, nothing less.

    No, it's a cartoon mocking reality shows in a very hilarious way. The wife and I are addicted to TDI and DVR every ep.

    Yeah TDI is very much a parody and a damn good one. The characters are such stereotypes while still being pretty decent characters.

    Chowder is probably the best show (aside from TF Animated) to hit CN since The Venture Brothers.

    I started watching Total Drama World Tour, and then TDI. Love them both, since as others said, it's a parody of all the worst parts of reality tv. Chris is such a a$$hole, and it cracks me up to see which animal is going to attack DJ.

    AFAIC, Chowder and Flapjack are IMHO the worst f**kin shows I've ever seen........
    (but my kids love 'em.....sigh)

    I think TDI is a bad show. I tried watching it and didn't laugh at all.

    Agreed. Albeit, the first season was okay-ish.

    I think it should be mentioned that every season has a different theme and title.

    Total Drama Island is the first season, Total Drama Action is the second, and Total Drama World tour is the 3rd.

    So season 1 was a spoof of Survivor, 2 was a what, Big Brother?, and season 3 spoofs The Amazing Race. What show is left to spoof in Season 4?

    I actually like the Total Drama series. It's a great parody of reality shows, and I can almost imagine actual contestants doing what they do in the show. :lol
