"The Batman Vs. Dracula": Fang-Smackingly Delicious

The Batman has been a love/hate show for franchise fans since the very moment it was announced.

Now I watch and enjoy the series, but it’s […]

"Justice League Unlimited" Vol. 2: The DC Entry Drug

The original Justice League was a little on the bland side. Sure, the occasional episode was magnificent, but too many generic alien baddies decreased enjoyment of the show.

"Boondocks" Brings All The Flaws of Primetime TV To Adult Swim

It’s a Cinderella story for Aaron McGruder’s Boondocks, the near-aborted animated comic strip adaption.
