[What are you going to do, though, right? *sighs*]
I'm not sure what exactly idiot TR brought to, or bring to, the show ever since DP began: I mean, mindless stupidity isn't something to be proud of, nor is abusing alliterations, having James giggle while Meowth pees on Jessie, etc.
"And what new things it does bring to the table (like OMG! A WATER STARTER EVOLVES!) have no bearing on either the plot or the quality."
^IKR? See, this is EXACTLY the problem: the only new things it does bring to the stable aren't major at all- they're so minor they don't affect the plot or quality of the show at all.
The English dub just...this is the last straw for me, really- I can't watch it anymore with this staff without getting upset: I thought TPCi were finally TRYING to get better in BW, but no, they go and regress back to their DP "standards" with XY's dub, and it really just feels awful seeing that after 8 years, they're even worse than when the initial switch occurred in their dubbing of Pokemon- 4Kids, at their worst in the beginning 20 episodes of their dub, was not even this bad...it's just...sickening.
I mean, when the people that work on the show in English don't seem to care about what they're doing, either, it makes it really hard for someone as a fan to get into it as well.
