Top 5: Shows I’m Enjoying A Lot More Than I Thought I Would

Scooby Doo: Mystery Incorporated (Cartoon Network)

I know what you’re thinking: another lame Scooby Doo reboot. But it’s above that. It’s the best incarnation this series has ever had. Better than the original, but at the same time, it couldn’t exist without the original. Mystery Incorporated takes the characters you’ve loved for years and makes them deeper and richer. They’re conflicted, jealous, bitter, and possessive, with real motivations and desires. This show makes the characters as fleshed-out as any kid’s cartoon stars could be. It also offers fantastic artwork, actually scary villains, hilarious one-liners, smart pop culture references, and an overarching mythology. Mystery Incorporated takes the Scooby Doo franchise to a place its never been before, and I can’t wait to watch how it all plays out.
