After orange islands I kind of tuned out of the anime. I watched a lot of Johto episodes, but after I found myself writing a suicide letter I decided to stop watching Johto. I would occasionally peek in to the other shows to watch a few episodes, but each time I ended up regretting it. It's like, after Orange Islands the makers of the anime just threw up their arms in defeat of the realization that little itty bitty children will watch their show regardless of subplots or creative writing or quality.
Probably the funnest part of the show is that, whenever I turn it on, I make jokes to my sister about how Cilan is an expressionless and soul-less alien out to consume Ash and Iris.
