"Hoodwinked": CG in Da Hood, G

Hoodwinked, written and directed by newcomer to the world of animation Corey Edwards, comes to us courtesy of Kanbar Animation Studio and Blue Yonder Films. Not ringing any bells? It shouldn’t; this isn’t a Pixar, nor is it a Dreamworks. It isn’t even a Blue Sky. Nope, it’s all fresh talent. Does the Hoodwinked team […]

Big Shoes to Fill: "The Simpsons - The Complete 7th Season"

Bill Oakley and Josh Weinstein were in a difficult position. As writers on The Simpsons since Season 4, they were promoted to executive producers at the beginning of Season 7, replacing David Mirkin. Many fans felt that Mirkin’s work in Seasons 5 and 6 was some of the best quality material on The Simpsons. How […]

"The Ping Pong Club": Make Way for Japan's Jackasses

Filled with foul miscreants (including one foul-smelling American), this team must fight for the right to keep their room, get the girls, buy porn, and the other things clubs tend […]

"Meet The Fuccons" Fuccon Weak Is What It Is

"Excel Saga" Soundtrack 2: Leftovers Lack Luster, Laughs

Back in late 2003, I stumbled upon a little anime comedy called Excel Saga. With little prior anime experience aside from some Sci Fi Channel movies and Dragon Ball, I gave it a shot. Not only would the comedy in Excel Saga far surpass my expectations, it would be my anime “gateway,” leading to hours […]

"Zixx Level Two": Game Over, Viewer Wins

For the past season, Zixx and her compatriots, reptillian Flanngo, questioning Riley, nerdy Dwayne, and underused Meghan, have been attempting to defend The Keep against the all-purpose villainous bad guys headed by Onccalon, who wants to use it to take over the world. When Dwayne turns out to be the living key to the Golden […]

"Labyrinth of Flames": Thanks Japan, This is More Like It

Labyrinth of Flames is a severely underrated comedy anime. As a big fan of Excel Saga, I’m not surprised I enjoyed it. But over the last year of comedy anime, I’ve been disappointed more times than I care to admit. With the exceptions of Full Metal Panic: FUMOFFU, Kodocha, and Cromartie High School, pretty much […]

"Divergence Eve: Misaki Chronicles" Vol. 1: My Eyes are Up Here

“Foolish Earthlings, totally unprepared for the effects of time travel! Ahahahah.”- Kang That basically sums up the main plot to Misaki Chronicles, the follow-up to Divergence Eve, a sci-fi anime from 2003. For those unfamiliar with the original 13-episode tale, it concerned a newly-recruited cadet named Misaki who fought against “Ghouls”, mechanized monsters bent on […]

The battle to save the universe is coming to a close on Level Two. With Dwayne now having the ability to open to path to Level Three, both sides of the war want him to turn the knob on the big door. Zixx, Flanngo, Riley and Meghan are obviously the ones to turn to, but […]

"Zixx: Level Two" "The Key" To Power Is In Your Rod!

Four teenagers with attitude, along with their reptilian friend, defend The Keep from the forces of evil. It’s Zixx, and you’ve probably never heard of it. “Canadian show” should tell you all. Plus, it’s one of the few things from Canada that completely rocks, alongside Smallville, Kids In The Hall, and that guy Matt I […]
