"Pinky and the Brain" Vol. 1: Taking Over the World, One DVD at a Time

by Bird Boyon August 6, 2006
I can’t recall ever watching Pinky and the Brain religiously as a kid. But now that a little time has passed, and these DVDs are in my hands, I appreciate the show a bit more. As with most Warner Bros. animation from the ’90s, you begin to pick up on and appreciate more as you […]

The "Animaniacs" Finally Escape! Onto DVD

by Bird Boyon August 1, 2006
Kid, young adult or old fart, it really doesn’t matter when it comes to Animaniacs. There is something so comforting about seeing these old (to me) cartoons once more, and realizing that I wasn’t wrong all those years ago – Animaniacs really is that good. I can still remember sitting down to new and used […]

by Bird Boyon July 19, 2006

by Bird Boyon July 15, 2006
Ever since seeing Hellboy in theaters, I’ve been a fan of Mike Mignola. While I admittedly have seen or read very few of his works, I was rather excited when I heard about The Amazing Screw-On Head being put into production. I didn’t follow the actual progression of the show or even read the comics, […]

by Bird Boyon July 12, 2006
Final details on the upcoming season sets of Batman Beyond and Justice League Unlimited are still not finalized, but so far we have initial cover art as well as a few early specs. Please keep in mind that while Justice League Unlimited is stated as the complete “first” season, it may contain both the first […]

"Metalocalypse": Head Banging is More Entertaining

by Bird Boyon July 5, 2006
Metalocalypse follows in the footsteps of recent Adult Swim originals: a goofy idea that sounds humorous, but the final execution contains very little of what you had hoped would make it a hit. Following the exploits of death-metal band Dethklok in a “Spinal Tap” and “Metallica: Some Kind of Monster” documentary style, the first episode […]
