Slugterra: Heroes of the Underground Thumbnail

After a disappointing installment in Slug Power, Slugterra returns to form with its newest DVD from Shout! Factory, Slugterra: Heroes of the Underground. By now, I suppose it’s pointless to complain that Slugterra is a show that would be much better served by season sets, or at least a few more episodes per disc than […]

I like them fine, for the most part, and while I may like things like “The Purple Smurfs” or one of their holiday specials, I think I still tend to approach all things […]

As I’m sure I’ve written before, I’d be shocked and dismayed at the way Transformers: Rescue Bots smashes little boy hot buttons by centering on rescue vehicles that turn into giant robots, except that it’s actually a really good show. The show’s second DVD, Transformers Rescue Bots: Energize, has just been released, and my only […]

Review: "Slugterra: Return of the Shane Gang": Saddle Up With This Posse

thumb-slugterrarev

I can enjoy the latest incarnations of DC or Marvel superheroes or revivals like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or G.I. Joe, but shows that strike out in new directions and create new properties are going to get a bit more critical slack just because they are creating something new. Disney TV animation has been […]
