Wasn't Carmen Sandiego the series's antagonist and the point of the show was to teach kids geography?  This looks like a Kim Possible rip off.

Yeah but this new show is supposed to be the character's origin story. Didn't expect them to do a game show again cuz nobody watches game shows anymore unless they're named Family Feud or Jeopardy :roff:

I never watched the show, but I played the original game, and you were part of a detective company chasing a bunch of international criminals led by her.

They're capitalising on the brand, but it's a bit nonsensical.

Yeah the original game was one of my favourite things ever and she most definitely was the major villain.
This changes the entire premise of the show and character so meh.

What even is the original game? Where in the World is Carmen San Diego on NES (and I assume a bunch of computers?).

My first intro to the character was the kids game show which I LOVED but hated how stupid the kids were. It was the closest I got to Legends of the Hidden Temple without cable :[

I was playing it on a schools old Apple computer.
On wiki it says the game was released in 1985, which is about right.
I was playing in black and white, and it was more or less a menu text adventure game.

Lol the company that makes choose-your-own-adventure books is suing Netflix and Black Mirror because of Bandersnatch. You can't make this shit up :roff:

They have a pretty good chance of winning the court case though :thinking:

Watched the first episode of True Detective season 3.
Liking it so far. Mahershala Ali is fantastic.
