Monkey Island TV Show

I kid you not. But I think they've strayed too far from the source material, I don't know if I can call it canon.

It wouldn't be without precedent. Maniac Mansion got a TV show, after all.

They could have done better casting the Fettucini Brothers....

There is an Android game with that name and I think: what? They did not know Monkey Island? Never played it? There is also an Assasin's Creed game called Fate of Atlantis. Are they kidding?

"Monkey Island" is just e relatively obvious name for a pirate-themed island, I think, which is why it is widely spread in pirate- or otherwisely carribean-related media. You know, carribean, monkeys... I mean who the  hell names their pirate islands Scabb Island. I think giving the legendary island in the game the name Monkey Island is just another brilliant move to clarify the childish nature of the interpretation of the pirate world concept that SMI was, as Monkey Island is the name a kid or a toy company would probably come up with. I think there's even a toy brand that makes pirate lunchboxes and stuff called Monkey Island.

Developers these days keep going for photorealism in everything, despite the obvious problems.  Also, it's an affront to the personal style and grooming habits of Guybrush.
