It's been a while since anything's been posted -- and a lot of emails and comments have come in. So I thought I'd answer a few.
Season 2 -- the finale....
First off, there has been a lot of debate and discussion about the ending of season 2. There seem to be a lot of folks who think one version of the ending is the "real" one and the other is a "fake" one. I've even read a conspiracy theory that the alternate ending was thrown together at the last minute in order to confuse or mislead the viewers. Here's the real deal:
From the very start of the writing process of season 2, it was decided that there would be 2 endings. This was done so that no-one (not even the crew) would know for sure who would win -- and that there could never really be a leak, making sure that there would still be some suspense leading up to the finale. The decision as to which ending would air was left up to the broadcasters to decide -- and Teletoon and Cartoon Network each chose to hold votes from viewers to pick their winner. Both of them are the real endings. This is exactly the same as season 1 when both Gwen and Owen won.
The idea that a second ending was just whipped up at the last minute comes from a lack of understanding of how the process works. These shows are written 6 to 9 months before they are animated -- it takes a lot of work and a lot of time to get the finished episode -- something that wouldn't be done just for kicks.
Season 3 --- Info
I know a lot of you are anxious to find out about season 3. Unfortunately I can't spill the beans on too much. I can tell you that production has almost completely wrapped up though. In fact, wiriting has already begun on season 4!!
There are lots of comments and emails about the cast of TDM too. Those of you who are threatening not to watch if so-and-so isn't on, or if that evil what's-her-name is on should just sit back and chill. It will all make sense when the season airs.
When will it air? .... I have no idea. Maybe this summer? Maybe in the fall.
In the meantime, I will start posting some of the artwork from season 2 -- show a bit of the process -- and as info on season 3 is made available, I will try to share it.
