  • Inhumanoids – 01 – The Evil That Lies Within, Part 1

    0 CommentsPosted by on June 25, 2011 under Cartoons, Featured, Reviews
    What lies before you is the precursor to something truly magical. I can't speak for Inhumanoids' popularity in the '80s, but the name certainly doesn't carry the same amount of weight as something like TMNT (I don't even have to define it, you know what it stands for). Inhumanoids only ran for 13 full 22-minute episodes, but it didn't start out that way. According to Wikipedia (apply your grain of... more.
  • Pokemon – 003 – Ash Catches a Pokemon!

    The moon landing, 9/11, and Ash catching his first Pokemon. Moments in television history that beg the question “Where were you when?” This episode chronicles the first Pokemon Ash ever caught. Oh sure it happens in the first 30 seconds of the show, and the Pokemon, Caterpie, was so weak that the blow to the head by the tossed Pokeball was enough to subdue it into said ball, but dammit that’... more.

    After the thrilling conclusion to the first episode, it’s time to catch up with Ash and Pikachu, weary from battle. The bike melted by electricity (but Ash suffers only a few patches of dirt on his body – strong kid) Ash rushes to Viridian City, where our next character, Officer Jenny, announces to the whole town that shit is going down. Now it should be mentioned that there is a theory that f... more.
  • Pokemon – 001 – “POKEMON! I choose you!”

    So begins our wondrous journey into the world of Pokemon! The series opens with an intense battle that remains more climatic and stylized than the rest of the battles this season. So I hope you got your fill because that’s it for you, glutton. While Ash wishes he could be in the stadium sending out his own Pokemon, he sits and watches the battle unfold on TV, surrounded by Pokemon merchandise ... more.
  • BraveStarr – 29 – Tunnel of Terror

    The episode starts off with a 40 second 'space' intro where you get some asteroids and comets and swirling galaxies, before it moves in past the three suns and on to New Texas. Filmation loves reusing animation, and you'll find this 'intro' again in quite a few later episodes too. Anyway, once that's over, we get BraveStarr atop his trusty steed 30-30, with Judge J.B. and Doc Clayton on turbomules... more.
  • BraveStarr – Intro – BraveStarr (BraveStarr!)

      Where do I even begin. This is an intro that lets you know you're about to see something different. It starts off with an old school map and branding iron which turn into an almost Tron-like motherboard, fitting well with the space cowboy theme. Only our cowboy is an Indian. Native American. Except this takes place on another planet, so he’s something like a tribalistic New Texan of ex... more.
  • Pokemon – Intro 01 – I WANNA BE THE VERY BEST (so long as it’s not too hard)

    So as will become a custom, I’m sure, the first review I’ll do of the quintessential children’s anime, Pokemon, is of its opening theme. While it’s not as memorable nor garners as much street cred as the Poke-Rap, it’s nonetheless part of the show, so let’s begin. Unless you followed a map to it, never stand on a giant X – you’re just asking to be sandbagged. We open with see... more.
