Watching this for the first time. It’s not bad. It is aimed at a younger audience. I am already digging the fact that the Howling Commandos of S.H.I.E.L.D. are involved with the show. While I write this, I am also watching the show. At this point I won’t hold my breath for Dum Dum Dugan to make an appearance.
The Howling Commandos was one of the best things that Marvel has put out in years. Having said that, it was also a short lived title. So seeing some of them show up in the animated universe is a treat.
This direct to video presentation is entertaining enough, but don’t expect anything too deep. It’s fun for what it is. If you like Doctor Strange, the Hulk, the Howling Commandos, and don’t mind simplistic plots, then this show is for you. It really is worth a watch.
This is a wonderful documentary on the full history of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It’s a great, and informative, watch. You can’t beat the rental price of $2.99 either. I was onboard the TMNT train back in 84, when I discovered the 2nd printing of issue number one at my favorite comic book shop, Comics & Comix, in Citrus Heights, California.
This week we get to meet the Mandalorians who work for the Empire. We also get to see more character development for Sabine. Dave Filoni has really honed his storytelling skills and given us an absolutely wonderful third season, so far. I am not someone who get’s caught up in the whole “This isn’t my Star Wars” thing. I can take enjoyment in watching Darth Maul’s machinations just as much as laughing at Hondo’s crazy schemes. From Puffer Pigs to James Earl Jones’ reprisal of Darth Vader, this show is a great escape for my Wife and I. If you haven’t already checked it out, then what are you waiting for?

Voltron: Legendary Defender, was released on June 10th. I cannot recommend this new show enough. I was 15 when Voltron: Defender of the Universe was released in North America from a retooled Beast King: Go Lion. Back then, I enjoyed the show a lot, it wasn’t my favorite but is was fun… until they tried splicing in Armored Fleet Dairugger XV. They quickly re-retooled their show and phased out the “Vehicle Voltron” for the more popular lion version. Clever as it was, they milked the footage for all they could. Coupled with the specialty shops importing Go Lion toys, Matchbox releasing a version then Panosh Place taking a shot at the license, the world seemed to be crazy for Voltron.
