"Scooby-Doo! Mystery Inc. Season 1 Vol. 1": It’s Not Coolsville

Almost everyone over the age of 6 has seen an episode of Scooby-Doo at least once. Scooby’s popularity amazes me. It’s a relatively formulaic show that has somehow managed to last over 40 years, through 11 series, 15 direct-to-video movies, 7 made-for-television animated films, 2 made-for-television live-action films, and 2 live-action theatrical movies. While I […]

"Invader Zim: Operation Doom": Support Zim! Zim Commands It, Filthy Human PigSmelly!

by darkdetectiveon March 2, 2011
I cannot help but grin from ear to ear as I watch this show. From the fantastic voice work, the gorgeous, original (if occasionally wonderfully grotesque) character designs never before seen in animation, it’s brilliant writing and odd yet hilarious humor, this show is nigh perfect, and in my opinion is the greatest show to […]

by Ed Liuon February 10, 2011
, and while times have been tough in that market for some time, I can’t believe that Viacom will improve much by releasing discs like Nickelodeon Sisters and Brothers. This newly released anthology disc collects episodes from five disparate shows, ostensibly unified by the theme in the title. I’m not sure what’s worse: the generally […]
