"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.

"ThunderCats": These Cats Can Dance

I’d had no experience with the ThunderCats franchise prior to watching the premiere episode of this new show and scanning its Wikipedia entry, and yet I can’t say I didn’t go in without a bit of bias. I’m just generally cynical about remakes. Furthermore, I thought the trailer—which can be seen here—did not look promising […]
