I thought I'd do my part to offer everyone who loves Total Drama but hates All-Stars to join our new AntiAll-Stars Group :

:iconantiall-stars:

For anyone who feels that the show has gone in the wrong direction with this season or feels frustrated by what it left us, you may feel free to express your misgivings against this canon fodder as much as you like over on that page. The Total Drama series has undeniably had many ups and downs over the years and has rarely matched what Total Drama Island was or what it gave us. And if fans are united on anything, it's perhaps on the shared opinion that Total Drama All-Stars, to put it mildly, sucked. The writing, the character development or lack thereof, the butchering of the continuity, Mal, the Mike vs. Zoey finale, the playing of favorites, the list goes on and on. And I firmly believe we as a fandom and our cast of characters, having been so great in Island all deserve better. We expect better from those who were once able to give us something so great, or at least anything that doesn't resemble a disaster like this.

We've already got several dozen members and we have so much to say about this season and the show's misguided direction. And such criticism is needed if such a season is to be avoided when the series resumes. The studios didn't act quick enough to address the trends that led up to this mess, and now is the time to put things right. And as the Total Drama fandom, we have that voice. And I suggest we use it.

For anyone interested, feel free to join up and submit anything there that spells out your views on this season. And frankly, don't feel the need to hold back if you do, if you hate this season and think it could've been better, then say all you need to make your point. The offer's open to anybody who's interested.

Credit goes to :iconking-d4: who founded this group. I'm just putting this out to help our group along and to put the word out to anyone who may want to join in.

Wish I was. I mean what the Hell? This cartoon resorts to only the lowbrow, it's no wonder quite a few Teen Titans fans shun this thing.

A 3rd season?! You got to be kidding me.

Yeah... Serious Business is definitley the most Family Guy-ish episode of the series thus far.

"Teen Titans GO!", Pfffffft. It should be renamed "Teen Titans IN NAME ONLY". How this clusterfucking assault of obnoxious pander is getting a third season is beyond me.

Oh well, fans finally got one thing that they really wanted to see happen. And yeah, it does sound like both endings are counted as canon, Thomas.

Braofo:iconbraofo:
akira Never understood it since both endings are considered canon but meh :shrug:
Thu Nov 20, 2014, 5:51 PM
ThomasVeggieDramaFan:iconthomasveggiedramafan:
I'm just now hearing that Shawn's ending was shown on the French version of Teletoon. I guess both endings are canon?
Thu Nov 20, 2014, 5:50 PM
Akira500:iconakira500:
Because a girl winning almost never happens in North America. What can I say? A lot of people did want to see that finally happen up there. :hmm:
Thu Nov 20, 2014, 5:47 PM
Braofo:iconbraofo:
Fresh TV doesn't show the endings. Teletoon does. Get your facts straight before saying something like that.... and both finalists are considered the winner. Don't know why this is a big deal
Thu Nov 20, 2014, 5:21 PM
ThomasVeggieDramaFan:iconthomasveggiedramafan:
Guess that means we can't call Fresh TV sexist anymore.

I did. My friend :iconscobionicle99: already warned me about that one in great detail. Who the hell are these people writing this crap? This show is doing everything in its power to be as unfunny as possible, I swear that's what's going on.

1002 courtney fans and this is only the deviantart  after tumblr or yutube   moor moor fans  wanted no moor ruined courtney !!! like terrible alstar again  !  courtneyfans made a  four new  protect courtney club about two moth ago 107 member only two month  I'm a courtney fan to   we wanted courtney change we not like this what the writers doit to her  suffered her everry sesons  not give her a change ruined her relationships that's it we wanted change her or wanted she is nicer frendlier and she and gwen is awesome and cute


some fans mesages :)  : > : ( and therefore it was decided that this should be taken against I want a collaboration between the courtney fans ,Yes, it would show that it is possible to save our favorite chick and not only me wanted this the time has come to act and to show we're not giving up.We need to talk with Emily to facebook we have to tell her feelings we need to tell her it can not go on. we love what we love to do and to whom the voice of courtney  :D : if she will listen to us and our success is we can do something.Try to save Courtney works out and not destroy her any more ! because it takes you develop sound  this is no fun or not drama leave her alone at least and no moor ruined her .


another fans protection  : What's this? Am I trying to be positive on one of my motivationals for a change, on the anniversary of one of the lesser moments of Total Drama's history? Yeah, I'm shocked too.

But yeah, instead of going over what's already been thoroughly discussed  today amongst ourselves, I decided I needed to say my own piece about this and just come out to say that I am still proud to call myself a fan of Courtney.

Yes, she's had it pretty rough along with most of the other original cast, and has seen some of the worst derailments inflicted on any one of them, hers from one year ago today being by far the most unforgivable for all the reasons many of you have already heard or agreed on. But even in spite of all of that, in spite of that wretched mess that was Sundae Muddy Sundae, I still enjoy Courtney and still root for her almost no matter what. She's been a top favorite of mine for a long time already, maybe not since Day One but she's really up there nowadays. I remember all the fun I still have with her from Island, the first half of World Tour, and even the middle third of All-Stars before things imploded. Heck, she probably made the remainder of Action a little easier to trek through given how that season forgot that this was a competition series but she came back to remind the season that it was. And no, that's not to say I appreciate her villainy in that season either, that was always dumb choice. But I do appreciate her bringing some life back to that season. And even then she still had her moments.

Courtney's always been an interesting and compelling character, and a very dynamic, three-dimensional character at that. She's definitely one of the most readily identifiable faces on the show and has brought a lot to the table as one of its most determined players. Thus, she is one those I have watched the most closely since I first stumbled upon Total Drama Island. She can be very entertaining and has more often than not proven herself a competent and well-rounded player, giving it all she has got to the best of her ability.

I enjoyed her immensely during Island and that's the side to Courtney I'll always love most. Feisty and fiery and yes, bossy and impatient at times, but still a determined and focused player who could be a great teammate and even friend as she once possessed a sense of honor that balanced out nicely with her flawed edge. No character should be perfect, they need to have their flaws and strengths, and she had a great mix of both in Island.

That balance however shifted all its weight to one end of the spectrum almost entirely come Action however, propelling Courtney into the villainous role that I don't think she ever deserved, and one that worked completely against her character and made her the truly polarizing figure she is. And seeing what an unpopular choice that proved to be with most, that really ought to have been the extent of it. But she has proved in both World Tour and All-Stars that that sense of honor she possessed is still there somewhere, and she still has her flashes of goodness which I think play truer to her TDI self. And Courtney is a lot more fun when she has that strong mix of both going, rather than constantly shifting to the one extreme. It's when that balance is in play that she's at her best and her most likable, and not to mention her most compelling and enjoyable. And that's the side to her I love most and want to see more of.

But a backasswards sense of direction and priority has often played against her, casting her in a negative light too much for too long in a way no character should be. Especially since it still acts in contrary to her old self which still shines at times. And she has so often been robbed of her good development when that balance was finally restored that it's inexcusable, often going way too far and over-the-top for poorly established reasons, last year's debacle surrounding Sundae Muddy Sundae being by far the most unacceptable and uncalled for instance of this. It's one thing to constantly be robbed of victory, even though Courtney would've been a far, far, FAR better candidate for the win in All-Stars as many would agree she's been overdue for some payoff for all her troubles. But nothing hurts more than to see her derailed more frequently than most any other character except for perhaps Gwen, and given this unpopular play on both sides it's a totally undeserved treatment. No single character deserves to be screwed over at the frequency and damaging extreme she has been, and for that she deserves better as a character as the routine wore out its welcome a long time ago, too much adding to the hatebase rather than doing a favor for both sides and playing her straight as they had once in the Island days.

Yeah, Courtney is a truly polarizing character for good reasons, but no character deserves to go through the Hell she did in SMS and so I still stand proudly on the side that hopes for her to finally get a genuine redemption. This character was so much fun and a lot more likable at those times where both sides to her were at a balanced equilibrium with each other, flawed but still honorable and capable of better judgement and civility. That's the Courtney I love and know is still hidden in there somewhere and so I am proud to call myself a fan of her and to still defend her and the other characters from the derailment they don't deserve.

Sundae Muddy Sundae was a terrible episode, one I will never ever forgive and one that earned all the contempt and scorn it earned for the incalculable damage it inflicted on Courtney, her fellow teammates, the season, and the series. It was unquestionably one of the lowest points of the franchise and will always stand as such for its obvious design as a character-ruining episode. But I will not let bad writing turn me against these guys, I will gladly continue to say how much better they deserve, how much better we deserve to have from the characters we have followed since the beginning. Courtney most especially, and I hope she will get the redemption she needs and deserves, I hope all of them get the redemption they deserve. Because that's what we all deserve to see.  

  and so to each their own on that. But if there's anything our two sides have show considerable agreement on it's that last year's episode went too far. Most everything in that season did in one way or another. And that is why I'm still going to root for better, stronger, and more consistently positive development for all of the characters and I hope finally Courtney will get her chance to shine again. I still enjoy her character, to some that may seem strange and that's alright. But she's still one of my favorites and I hope she'll finally get the redemption she has been so long overdue for.

Proud to protect and love Courtney as a character. In spite of everything, I'll continue to enjoy her character and will continue to hope for better for her and the rest of the cast. And last year's debacle will not change that, Courtney Fan FTW, folks!


Oh, and P.S. , Courtney's smile is the best smile.   Really please fresh changed Courtney we not like this sufered her and not give her a a change :(  really please we wanted nicer again like seson 1  seson 1 courtney is cute and adorable we want back this courtney I think emily is happy after courtney back her old self  :)
