"Loonatics Unleashed": As Bad as You Feared

Don’t see it. That was the short review. Now to the real stuff. I just saw twenty and a half minutes of this new show called Loonatics Unleashed, and I am still scratching my head.

"Galaxy Railways" Vol. 2: Half Steam Ahead

We all slow down eventually, even in the world of entertainment. Kevin Costner, for example, has gone from battling vicious gangsters to canoodling with frumpy housewives.
