"ThunderCats": The Cat's Meow

Never judge a new series by its first episode, a certain television producer once cautioned me. Remember, the people making it are still feeling their way, trying to get the kinks worked out.

I’m just generally cynical about remakes. Furthermore, I thought the trailer—which can be seen here—did not look promising […]

"ThunderCats": Old Cats, New Tricks

Fans always find it tricky to face nostalgia head on. Few things can be as disappointing as a TV show you loved as a kid, revisited and revealed to be nowhere near as great as you remember it, and few things can be as dispiriting as having the warm, fuzzy feelings you had about it […]
