OK, Discussion of this show has been dropped from time to time, but I feel theres enough to warrant a dedicated thread to this fine program.

Dan Vs. is a show I've often kept hearing about but I've never actually had the opportunity to sit down and really watch it. Last time I did, I got interrupted for something so I never finished a whole episode.

Then the other day, Shmeckie actually showed me a couple episodes including Dan vs. New Mexico, the Salvation Army, Burgerphile, and The Shakespearean Theater, and they were all fucking excellent.

Seriously, Dan Vs. has a really great formula to it, by all rights you've got a main character who's this surly, unlikable asshole with virtually no redeeming qualities whatsoever, his mellow, go-with-the-flowish best friend who always gets wrapped into his schemes but at times can be just as much of an asshole, all in a world where everyone is kind of an asshole in some way, shape or form.

And yet however petty or obscure, Dan always gets vindicated in his revenge. It has that quality that I ADORE about Regular Show where theres no single punching bag of a character and in some twisted way everything just works out in the end. Of course I'm digging the more risque jokes getting past the radar as well.

Most recently I saw a clip of the upcoming Vs. Mall Santa episode.

All this in the same programming block that airs My Little Pony!? Sign me up till the end of time!

Yeah, sign me also up. But first, do me a favor... put up links.
Okay seriously, I saw a few episodes like Dan vs Baseball and Dan vs Technology on youtube, but there is a serious lack of episodes there and I really, really would appreciate if someone would be able to link episodes here or either send me something over PM.

Sam here, I don't get The Hub. Other than that, it's amazing how they can someone like Dan to be a joy to watch. Which makes me wonder what kind of upbringing he had.

Shouldn't the title be "Dan Vs. Project AFTER"? Ah well, he doesn't strike me as the type to write fanfiction...

Anyway, this show is amazing and everyone should watch it. I'm currently at the "Vs. George Washington"-episode and so far, every single one has been hilarious.

The creators claimed he was like "Calvin as a grownup, if his life had gone horribly wrong somewhere." Sounds about right. Still, one wonders what it was exactly that screwed him up... his Grandma, maybe?

EDIT: Okay, I watched the George Washington-episode, which far succeeded my already high expectations. Just one question... did Dan and Elise just FLIRT with each other? And then afterwards have a mother/son-thing going on? Because that is incredibly funny in a very strange way.

This show is fucking great, and I'm happy to see the love spreading.

Also, I just want to add this is the only family-friendly cartoon I know of that has ended episodes with the protagonist(s) killing people, or gassing an entire city with a chemical weapon. Izzat sum dark humor I see, Hub? Very nice...

No, she just came to the conclusion that Dan's like an overgrown child, which helped her accept him.

I'm hoping to see Dan vs. Maryland sometime down the line.

Its bound to be great because of how under-the-radar of a target the whole state really is.

And then telling him honest-to-God bedtime stories. So damn funny...

Speaking of dark humor, remember Mike in Dan Vs. the Barber?

I saw Dan Vs. The Barber, but I don't remember a Mike...

It did remind me of one of my favorite call-back jokes, also relating to Dan putting revenge over his love life; at the end of Dan Vs. Burgerphile, Dan gets a girlfriend who honestly likes him for the wacko that he is, but at the end she has to move to Santa Monica. Dan laments that she's "gone forever," while Chris reminds him that Santa Monica's only 20 minutes away, to which Dan responds, "gone forever..."

Now go back and watch Dan Vs. The Salvation Armed Forces. He drives all the way to their donated car lot to get his car back. When he gets off the bus from where he just was, the bus says "Santa Monica."

So he'll drive to Santa Monica (multiple times) to get his revenge, but not to see his girlfriend. When I spotted the bus thing, I laughed my ass off when it hit me.

He was the friend of the girl that Dan liked. We see Dan two times during the episode marking his name down on his list, and at the end during the Barber-duel, Dan accidentally causes scissors to shoot in the audience, killing someone. His sorta-girlfriend then screams out "Mike! Oh no!" and Dan has for a few seconds this "whoops"-look on his face and then just casually crosses Mikes name of his list and proceeds with cutting Chris' hair. It was great.

Oh one more little bit of fun trivia, Chris is played by Dave Foley of "The Kids in The Hall" fame.

And Mark Hamill is making a guest appearance as the Mall Santa in the new episode.

The Kids in the Hall thing is made better by the fact that another KITH alumni, Kevin MacDonald, played the Steve Jobs parody character in Dan Vs. Technology.

Dan Vs. Dan was incedible. Especially how Dan managed to get back at the impostor at the end. It's interesting to see that Dan is actually pretty smart, the only thing holding him back is his insanity. Also, a Hannibal Lecter-reference in a cartoon? Hell yes. I'm also curious about his childhood now, considering it scared the psychologist...

Also this:

"Sic semper tyrannis!"
"Wow, he speaks french..."

EDIT:

"I don't know about you guys, but I could really go for a burger right now. How do you take yours?"
"Naked!"

Whoa. I mean, WHOA. How did they get THAT past the censors?! That's like a joke I would make!

...I love this show.

Thats another thing that I thiink is awesome about Dan. He has some surprisingly civilized interests despite his demeanor. The Shakespeare theater episode is probably the best example of this, the fact that his whole revenge point is because of the actors misusing or mispronouncing so many lines.

And the whole fencing bit:

"This guy smacked me with his fencing foil."

"It's called an 'epee', I'm telling you this so you don't look stupid."

I finally watched all of season one. Man, what a finale. Those kids were the biggest assholes in the entire show, and that is truly no small feat. The revenge was good enough, but I would have preferred physical obliteration. Because, goddamn.

By the way, I loved when Dan went all Emperor Palpatine and called Chris an Avatar of Nemesis. And the ending.

"See, my parents let the TV raise me, and I turned out great!"

Dan Vs. is back on the site where one can WATCH CARTOON ONLINE.

Google it...

Also, is it my imagination, or did they make a Dave The Barbarian reference in the Animal Shelter episode?! Dan says "bejabbers," which was Dave's catch-phrase expression thing. I've never heard that wprd used outside that show (until today, anyway).

EDIT:

OH MY GOD DAN VS. THE ANIMAL SHELTER IS SO FUNNY I ALMOST THREW UP OKAY NOT LITERALLY BUT HOLY SHIT MY JAW HURTS SO MUUUUUUUUUUUUCH!

The bit with Dan stuffing comatose Chris in the car in the hospital parking lot was so funny I had to stop the video while I just laughed that silent laugh where you're laughing so hard you're just turning your face inside out by that point.

Especially when the windows rolled up...!
