The Big O
|This Article is About Television|
Nothing you see here relates to the real world. Or maybe it's the real world that's fake, and television is the only reality. You decide!
|WARNING. This Article makes no sense BECAUSE WE ALL EXPECT TO SEE ONE OF THOSE HERE Just like George Bush being president for eight years, Invisible Pink Unicorns, the fact Michael Jackson is a dancing zombie, reality TV, Flavor Flav, Aquaman, and the ending of Evangelion.|
The Big O is an anime series created by J.J. Abrams. It is a historic milestone because it is one of few anime shows to be famous in America but not famous enough as to let the plot make any fucking sense. Except the person who wrote that last sentence clearly doesn't know what the phrase "EPISODIC SERIES" means, and they go masticate a dictionary for a while(not one of those wimpy school ones, they're too bland), then go watch the second series which is more awesome than laughing at a man masticating on a dictionary. Like the fact that there is no real ending and there never will be because the writers were busy huffing kittens when they were supposed to be finishing the show. (Once again look at every series before you huff your own kittens and get all huffy about it.)
The Big O takes place in Spare-a-Dime City, which is called such because the citizens of said city lost their memories forty years ago and have become lazy bums who insist upon asking for money, borrowing your car and eating your funyuns and then not buying anymore when you're out. Because of this attitude, there are a lot of fights - especially hobo fights over cheezburgers and sammiches.
Roger Smith is a negotiator in the city and by "negotiate", I mean "move the plot along". He is also happens to live in Batman's old mansion, which Batman lost prior to this in a bet to Superman and had to live in a dumpster with Aquaman. He also has Batman's butler, whom he calls Norman instead of Alfred. Oh. And he has a robot. Can't have an anime without a robot chick.
Oh. And there's also something about a robot. I don't know. I stopped paying attention when I realized that The Big O is Batman with very ugly robots.
Roger Smith: Roger is Spare-a-Dime's top negotiator. He is also rich for some reason and owns a giant robot that NO ONE seems to really notice he owns, especially when its underneath his giant house. He owns a robot and is convinced that he is a tomato. This tomato belief stems from the fact the writers hate plots.
R. Dorothy Wayneright: A robot who Roger owns despite the fact that people in Spare-A-Dime city don't even have Internet, let alone robots. Her main purpose is to suck roger up who need someting to masturbate over while they watch the show in their mother's basement. Since the show ended, she now plays one of the robot-hooker extras on Futurama.
Alfred: Alfred is Roger's badass butler who Roger calls "Norman", despite the fact he constantly restates "I'm Alfred, Roger. ALFRED." every episode. He is also packin some serious heat and has l33t haxxorz skillz, or that's at least what he put on his myspace.
Angel: Angel is the local stripper in Spare-a-Dime City. She often joins Roger on his quests to rid the city of evil, since giant robots and Batman wanna-bes make her wet. Oh yeah, and she's some robot or something. I don't know. I stopped paying attention during the last couple of episodes.
Schwartzwald: Schwartzwald's name was originally Mickey Seebach. Mickey used to work at a company in Spare-a-Dime until everyone realized he was a complete douchebag and had him fired. This drove him mad and he joined the darkside. The darkside didn't want him because they too realizes he was a douchebag, so he wrapped himself up in bandages and huffs kittens. Oh yeah. And there's something about a robot too.
Alex Rosewater: Alex is a greedy corporate ass-hole, which no show is complete without. He also has a robot for some reason that is never explained either.
Alan Gabriel: Alan, like Dorothy, is a robot. Also like Dorothy, he is also used as something for fans to masturbate over, but this time it's lonely teenaged girls who cannot download their daily yaoi because their favorite site is down.
Beck: Beck is the illegitimate son of the Pink Ranger and Jim Carrey. Once, he attempted to do stand up comedy in a robot. Bruce...er Roger Smith was offended greatly by Beck's use of dated material, most of it involving Chuck Norris, and so he had him arrested and sent to MTV. He is now the star of the hit series "BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad."
