  1. 1980's Cartoon: Thundercats Ho!!!!

    So the story is that, unlike many other cartoons, they tried to get the principal voice actors to show up at the same time to record their dialogue. This led to something that is rarely seen: obscene cartoon out-takes.
  2. 2011 Cartoon

    Discuss the 2011 cartoon here.
  3. Discuss the classic 1980's cartoon here.
  4. You get the feeling that we are in the middle of an animation "Dork Age"?? After absolutely nobody said "I would really like to see denser and wackier versions of cartoons like "Spider-Man", "Justice League", "Teen Titans", and "Ninja Turtles"." Cartoon Network now thinks we would like to see a denser and wackier version of thunder-Thunder-THUNDER-THUNDERCATS!!!! Just remember, people, a while back, there was a time where Scooby Doo was stuck in a "Dork Age", only to emerge from it better and stronger. As the old saying goes "This, too, shall pass."
  5. I've been watching Chi McBride for decades, from "Pushing Daisies" to "Human Target" to all the way back to "John Laroquette Show" (not to mention movies like "The Frighteners" and "Gone in 60 Seconds"). You can just tell his ad-lib moments really make his characters much more believably funny. (PS Only "Dog" can turn a hot tub into a "cold" tub. HA HA)
  6. S12.E04: The Tam Turbulence

    Not too many examples of something like this (for obvious reasons). I can only think of the time they wrote an episode of Hercules where Herc and Ioalus had to travel to their old academy and we got to see Lilith as an adult. And the comic book where Skeeter shows up at the Muppet Theater.
  7. S05.E01: E Pluribus Unum

    So, what show will Hillary cameo in NEXT this season???? Will it be "Blue Bloods"??? or maybe "FBI"????????? or perhaps "Mom"?????? Bill: "I'm OK with any of 'em just as long as it isn't "How To Get Away With Murder"?? How many times can I say I'm sorry???"
  8. S12.E03: The Procreation Calculation

    Hollywood is constantly "dragging" shows out that have the "boy meets girls, boy wants girl, boy can't get girl" concept. Shows like "Get Smart", "Mork & Mindy", "Cheers", "Lois & Clark", etc. have the first seasons where the two leads are trying to "get" each other. Somewhere in the middle of the show's run, the writers decide to have them get married, (Yes, I know, Sam and Rebecca didn't get married, but they did spend the last season dating, with a stupid plot involving trying to get Rebecca pregnant) only to quickly discover that the writers have NO IDEA how to write for a show that features a married couple. When they started to write this show in that direction, I knew that these writers were going to wind up in the same scenario. "Friends", of course, took the "boy meets girl" concept allllllllllll the way to the end. Next week, Hollywood Writing 101 will explore why TV shows that feature friends growing up in high school tend to keep the show going beyond high school instead of just ending the show at graduation. Class dismissed.
  9. Just a heads up........... The 90 minute pilot movie premieres tonight (with several encore showings). Carol and the kids are here just in time ................ to watch Young Justice S3 premiere on DC Streaming Service.
  10. S12.E02: The Wedding Gift Wormhole

    Nice joke regarding the regifting of the item: From Raj to Howard to Leonard to Sheldon, however, "Cheers" did it better: Woody was giving a "Star Trek" chess set to Robin and Rebecca (they didn't get married in the end) which he got from Fraisier, which he got from Norm, which he got from Cliff. That's five regifts!!! (Of course, Sheldon says he will regift the item back to Raj, which is 5 regifts back to the original owner ---- even funnier!!!!)
  11. Game: Same Title, Different Tune

    Fire - Jimi Hendrix Fire - U2 Fire - 50 Cent Fire - Busta Rhymes Fire - Michele Williams and others.
  12. So that happened............ I guess I should not be all that surprised; they did put the person who created "Super Best Friends" in charge of this. Of course, she turned everyone into "Super Best Friends". Still, as they often say. if it isn't broke............... I am definitely not going to like Batgirl changing from the competent (baritone-sounding) commander into her "SBF" bubbly-voiced cuckoolander. Apparently, Zantanna has been upgraded to one of the main girls now. (She's the girl that I first thought was Raven standing between Bumblebee and Jessica Cruz GL). The art shift is obviously bad enough, but if they make the "attitude" of the show more wacky than the webisodes (not to mention the full-length movies), then I will not be watching this anymore. PS; boy, is that little girl a fan or what???? I didn't even know they had dolls (figures??) of some of the characters (Barry Allen, Amanda Waller)
  13. Zapped (1982) - Did you know Scott Baio and Willie Aames worked together in a movie before working together on that TV show????? Zapped (2014) - Zendaya (who has probably never heard of Scott Baio) can control boys with a smartphone. (It's not that difficult to do ---- they are called breasts)
  14. The DC Extended Universe: To Thanagar and Beyond!

    I keep telling all of the millennials that if social media existed back in the late 70's and the 80's, then Marvel would have given up trying to make movies altogether. The Marvel fans that claim that DC movies SUCK have apparently never seen any of these gems. The only way you can watch these films is with two little robots sitting on either side of you.
  15. S06.E18: The Visions of Norman P. Horowitz

    Extant. I also miss whatever insanity "Zoo" is coming up with this week. and don't forget Taxi Brooklyn, where a female police detective lost her driver's license and must now work with a Brookyln taxi driver (no, seriously). As Joel McHale used to say, The Summer Season of Silly Shows is the gift that keeps on giving.
