What is TDA or Total Drama Action?

If you have a tween you have probably heard them mention TDA. The first time I heard it I had no clue what my daughter and her friends were talking about. Now I know and knowing is half the battle, G.I. Joe Whoops sorry just having an 80's cartoon moment.

Okay back to TDA. It stands for Total Drama Action. This is a cartoon that airs on the Cartoon Network. I am not a huge fan of the newer cartoons. I much prefer The Flintstones, The Jetsons and Jem (I just loved the theme song of this one). Well there are others but those are some that I enjoyed when I was younger. Now TDA is the in show to watch.

It's actually the second season of Total Drama Island. My daughter loved that show as well. She is actually hoping to get the Total Drama Island DVD for Christmas.

Both of the shows are basically a cartoon version of Survivor. They have to do silly challenges and at the end of the episode the contestants vote someone off. There are a wide range of characters some you love and some not so much. My daughter's favorites are Courtney and Duncan. I have no idea who they are, but I have watched and episode with her and I find it too be very silly. I don't see the attraction, but she seems to like it. The challenges are absurd and something always goes wrong. There is even a crazy chef. Basically this show is picking on Survivor and I'm all for that. It's mindless fun.

I hear the next season is called Total Drama Music. I wonder what this one will be like?
