The Penguins of Madagascar - "Operation: Good Deed/When the Chips Are Down" Recap

  Operation: Good Deed – After seeing a kid perform a good deed (and preaching about it to an annoyed Alice), the Penguins are inspired to do good deeds themselves with the other zoo animals. In order to do that good deed, they must take part in a series of trades with the zoo animals, […]

Fate/Zero - "False Start" - Episode 2 Recap

Like the first episode, the second episode of Fate/Zero “False Start” is light on actual fighting. Instead, it focuses on a few of the master/servant pairings and the dynamics of their relationships. As we get deeper in the war these moments will likely be sparse, so for now I will happily take the characterization. This […]

Transformers Prime - "One Shall Rise - Part 2" Recap

“The Autobots must team up with an unlikely ally in order to defeat Unicron.” The middle part of many an ongoing trilogy begrudgingly carries the position of “Nothing Really Exciting Happens Here” syndrome. Yeah, this episode is padding. If you need further proof, the first seven minutes (a good third of the episode) is nothing […]

"SpongeBob's Runaway Roadtrip": A Trip to Less Than Bountiful

Do people still use slide projectors to share photographs of their vacations? It’s a sign of just how boring SpongeBob’s Runaway Roadtrip is that none of the five episodes included on the DVD theme set could distract me from that admittedly pointless question. For the record, the five episodes in question are “A SquarePants Family […]

Thank You Steve

I was at a friend’s wedding in San Francisco a few years ago and noticed someone standing by himself at the back of the assembly, wearing a black turtleneck, jeans, and sneakers. I asked one of the groomsmen, a former college roommate, “Hey, is it just me, or does that guy look a whole lot […]

"The Strange Talent of Luther Strode" #1 and "'68 Encore Edition" - Skip the Superhero, Take the Soldiers vs. Zombies

I think I would have enjoyed The Strange Talent of Luther Strode #1 if it didn’t keep reminding me of other comics that were better or more daring. As it stands, it’s a vaguely intriguing start to a story, but also one that recycles a lot of tried-and-true elements from superhero comics without really adding […]

Adventure Time - "Apple Thief" Recap

Finn and Jake spend the day at Tree Trunk’s house hoping for some of her delicious apple pie. Unfortunately for them, their pie-eating dreams are dashed when Tree Trunks’ special apples go missing. An apprehensive Tree Trunks joins them as they look for her apples in the seedy underbelly of the Candy Kingdom. Missing fruits […]

The Amazing World Of Gumball - "The Sock" Recap

“When Miss Simian believes that Darwin and Gumball aren’t telling the truth about their father eating their homework, she sends them to Mr. Small in order to learn a lesson about honesty.  However, things quickly go from bad to worse when they take his lessons too literally.” One of the many things that I have […]
