Nicktoons network is mainly a rerun channel. They mostly play cartoons from Nickelodeon and from other international sources. But now, they've introduced Kappa Mikey and Skyland into their programming.
Skyland is set in the year 2251 in the shattered remains of the earth orbiting around the core. The government, called the Sphere, has been corrupted and is now a dictatorship. Mila, a seemingly normal woman, lives on a remote farm with her daughter, Lena, age 12, and her son, Mahad, age 17. Their lives change forever when Mila, a skilled warrior, and Lena, an unwitting preteen, are discovered as powerful "Sejins", people who can control energies and objects with his or her mind. Oslo, one of the Sphere's ghouls, captures Mila and goes after Lena, believing that she can fulfill an ancient prophecy. The rest of the story will likely follow Mahad and Lena, along with a ship of rebel allies, through their various adventures, self discovery, and escapes from the Sphere.
This show is fairly good. Its use of CGI and motion capture are entertaining to watch. Some of the scenery even looks real. If nothing else, the animation is worth seeing. It can become like watching a video game, but after a while, the effect wares off. The storyline is equally interesting, though not totally original. Skyland is a good addition to Nicktoons, think of it at the Nicktoons' Avatar.
The series will premiere on Nicktoons Network sometime in late 2006.
