"Dastardly and Muttley in Their Flying Machines": Mayday! Mayday! Must Eject!

by Chris Woodon August 24, 2005
I’ve come to believe that some things are simply against the laws of nature, such as the Bengals reaching the playoffs or Michael Jackson subscribing to Penthouse. Perhaps DVD TV season sets should be added to the list. I defy anyone to watch Dastardly and Muttley in Their Flying Machines The Complete Series in one […]

"Gundam 0083" Fantastic Action Surrounded By Torturous Characters

by Dukeon August 22, 2005
Ah, the Gundam side stories. Because of their short length and cheap price, most people who like Gundam choose these to view the One Year War and the Universal Century. Unfortunately, just because it’s part of the Universal Century doesn’t automatically make it good. While 0080 was decent and 08th MS Team was excellent, 0083 […]

"Gundam 0080": War is Hell, But You Knew That Already

by Dukeon August 22, 2005
Ah, the Universal Century. The original and by far the longest in Gundam‘s timelines, and still the mainstay of the series. Because of the popularity of the original Gundam, three side stories (the other two are 0083 and 08th MS Team) were made to capitalize on its success and offer a new point of view […]
