This week, we examine those characters that enter a well-established series, and kind of turn it into a pile of poo.

Stephen Schleicher began his career writing for the Digital Media Online community of sites, including Digital Producer and Creative Mac covering all aspects of the digital content creation industry. He then moved on to consumer technology, and began the Coolness Roundup podcast. A writing fool, Stephen has freelanced for Sci-Fi Channel's Technology Blog, and Gizmodo. Still longing for the good ol' days, Stephen launched Major Spoilers in July 2006, because he is a glutton for punishment.

  1. StellarLeader on

    I’m barely at the 8:20 mark but I had to come here and say two things:
    1) I’ve never understood why people hates Scrappy Doo so much and
    2) Stephen, I’m a software engineer. You are waaaay above the average on the computer knowledge scale

  2. Scott Gunstream on

    I never had a problem with Scrappy. I was more aggravated that they removed Fred, Daphne and Velma!

  3. Karl G. Siewert on

    Like StellarLeader above, I’m jumping in well before the end of the episode to tell Stephen that he has no earthly idea how bone-stupid people can be about computers. To put it in perspective, Stephen, think about your students when you were teaching at FHSU. Think about how you compare to them in terms of computer knowledge, and then realize that, in my experience in both academic and public libraries, college students are far above average.

    Until you have watched someone go to Google so that they can type “” into the search box to get to their e-mail, you have no concept of the computer ability level of the general public.
