"Conan the Adventurer" Season 1: By Crom, What a Disappointment!

It’s a pleasure to report that there is at least one Saturday morning cartoon out there that manages to capture the untamed, muscular sensibilities of Robert E.

Beside that one, 1992′s Conan the Adventurer is only the palest of shadows of Howard’s original, […]

The Road So Far - The Amazing World Of Gumball

It feels like only yesterday that I first discovered The Amazing World Of Gumball, yet nearly two years have passed since then and I have watched every single episode since the premiere back in May.  At the time of this writing, exactly half of the first season’s episodes have aired.  I figured it was a […]

"Casshern Sins" Complete Series: Repenting Won't Save This Soul

When FUNimation first started marketing Casshern Sins, I thought the series looked rather neat. The animation had a simple, charming feel while the humanoid robot premise reminded me of Cyborg 009, a series I nostalgically enjoyed.

"The Smurfs: A Magical Smurf Adventure" Could Be a Lot Smurfing Better

The Smurfs: A Magical Smurf Adventure, which is being released to ride the PR push for the live-action/CGI Smurfs movie, provides a decent cross-section of the iconic 1980s cartoon. Despite its title, there is no single narrative or strong tie between any of the ten episodes provided across the 2 discs in the set, all […]
