"Over the Hedge": Just Another Funny Critter Picture

Oh God, only a month has lapsed since the release of Disney’s The Wild, and already it’s time for another CG-animated farting animal picture?

"Negadon the Monster from Mars": Mars Needs More Monsters

One of the great joys of growing up in suburban New Jersey in the 1980’s was the 4:30 movie on ABC.

Support Your Country! Buy American Dad on DVD!

Part of what happens when a person creates a TV show that turns out to be a big hit is that the viewing audience will unfairly compare that person’s newest creation to their old one, at least at first. It happened with Matt Groening when he went on to create Futurama, and it happened with […]

"Robot Chicken Season One" Who Poop Last!?

What happens when the chicken crosses the road? He’s run over, turned into a cyborg by the local mad scientist and forced to channel flip through television for the rest of his life. But it’s not our TV he’s watching. We don’t have shows such as “The Real World: Metropolis,” “Who Poop Last?” and episodes […]

"Devil Hunter Yohko: The Complete Collection Vol. 2" Ah, the logic of Twin Cousins

Yohko Mano is Japan’s equivalent of Buffy The Vampire Slayer; a young girl begrudgingly given the task of defending the earth (more specifically, their home town… you never really saw Buffy go too far from Sunnydale) from demons and derelicts. Yohko’s a real girl, one who swears, has hormones, and would rather track down the […]
