Review: “Horizon on the Middle of Nowhere Season 1 (UK Edition)” – Nowhere Near What You’d Expect

by Grant Whiteon September 16, 2013
Usually I’d offer a brief explanation of the plot’s starting point but on this occasion I find myself more than a bit bewildered. As the adaptation of a later saga in a massive sci-fi epic, Horizon does itself few favours by beginning the show with a hurdle in the form of a four episode ‘introduction’ […]

Review: “Wander Over Yonder” – You Should Wander Over Immediately

by KarlOlsonon September 13, 2013

The genius creator of The Powerpuff Girls and co-creator of Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends seemed to disappear as a wave of new talent spilled onto the US animation scene. While young blood like Pendleton Ward, J.G. Quintel and Alex Hirsch have been delivering […]

Review: “Wander Over Yonder” Worth the Trip

by Weathermanon September 13, 2013
Some shows have a great big high-minded purpose with massive casts and a sprawling epic story with dozens of intersecting plotlines.

Those two main characters are Wander, a happy-go-lucky guy who […]

I like them fine, for the most part, and while I may like things like “The Purple Smurfs” or one of their holiday specials, I think I still tend to approach all things […]

Review: “Dream Eater Merry” Season 1 (UK Edition) – The Stuff That Dreams Are Made Of?

by on September 9, 2013
Dreams are nasty buggers, particularly for teens – high expectations from parents, school, television, peers, and society in general are all carried across aspiring youthful shoulder blades, sucking away at the ability to enjoy the present for fear of the future. It’s no surprise that the world of nightmares and daydreams are so widely scattered […]
