When I was a child, Saturday morning cartoons were kinda my jam. I went to kindergarten and the first grade in Puerto Rico, where my father, who was in the Navy, was stationed for a while. We came back to the States before I began second grade. We lived with my maternal grandparents for a […]Read more "10-List: 21st Century Animated Series I’ve Enjoyed"
I know that we’ve talked about this before, you and I. I was an OG Star Wars fan. I’ve been a member, in good standing, of the Rebel Alliance since that day in 1977 when I saw Star Wars for the first time. This was when it was actually titled just Star Wars; the subtitle […]Read more "Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Season 1 — a review"
As soon as I watched the first episode of this series, “What If . . . Captain Carter Were the First Avenger?” I knew that I was going to like it. Although the movie Iron Man was the official kickoff of the MCU, it was the first Captain America movie that really set the tone […]Read more "What If …?: Season 1 (Disney +) — a review"
I still dig the occasional cartoon. Considering my bona fides, you may assume that my animation of choice might be of the superhero variety. There’s some truth in this assumption. I loved Batman the Animated Series; that’s undeniable. I also enjoyed the first season of Invincible, which I recently watched, and the first two seasons […]Read more "Disenchantment: Part 1 (Netflix) — a review"
I’ve written reviews of the first shows of new series I’ve watched before. I recall writing separate reviews for the first and second episodes of The Orville. I wasn’t crazy about the first, but I came around by the second. Still, I generally wait until I’ve watched the whole season. There are only eight episodes […]Read more "Invincible: Season 1: Episode 1: “It’s About Time” — a review (Amazon Original)"
With DC Universe undergoing its current implosion, the fate of some of the television shows I’ve enjoyed on that platform may be up in the air. Is that a mixed metaphor? Implosion and up in the air? The three series on my mind are Titans, Doom Patrol and, of course, this animated series, starring the […]Read more "Harley Quinn: Season 2 — a review"
A while back, I bragged about having watched all of the existing Trek content available in the world. First off, a person should never brag about anything. It’s not very classy or professional, and it makes you look egotistical. Arrogant, even. The word “brag” is the load-bearing portion of the word braggart, which is generally […]Read more "Lies, Trophies, Looking Forward and Star Trek: Lower Decks — not a review (because I haven’t watched it yet)"
I delayed writing my review of the first season of DC Universe’s Harley Quinn because I thought I had more time. The first season debuted November 29, 2019. I assumed that meant Season 2 wouldn’t come out until at least the fall of 2020. You remember that old saying about what it means when you […]Read more "Harley Quinn: Season 1 — a review"
The final eight episodes of Season 6 of Netflix’s amazing animated series BoJack Horseman are scheduled to drop on January 26, 2020. This review is for the first eight episodes of the last season. Those of you who still dismiss animated shows as kiddie fare haven’t been watching this one, which pairs anthropomorphized animals and […]Read more "BoJack Horseman: Season 6 (Part One) — a review"
You probably knew already that Season 6 of BoJack Horseman is the final season of this wonderfully bleak and bitter animated series which includes both human and anthropomorphized animal characters. The first half of the 16-episode season drops on Netflix in less than a week, with the second half coming early in 2020. It seems […]Read more "BoJack Horseman: Season 5 — a review"
