Asaph Fipke Splash Slugterra

Asaph “Ace” Fipke bills himself as the Supreme Commander of Nerd Corps, the Vancouver-based animation studio, and the whimsy in job title carries over into their TV shows. A child actor whose father was in show business as well, Fipke began college at the University of BC, but dropped out in favor of the Vancouver […]

Review: "Slugterra: Ghoul from Beyond" Doesn't Go Too Far

splash-slugterraghoulsfrombeyond

Slugterra: Ghoul from Beyond is a mildly disappointing effort in the Slugterra franchise for a few different reasons. Despite its billing as “the first Slugterra movie,” a short running time and average production values makes it look like just a two-part episode of the TV show. It’s also saddled with a drawn out and padded […]

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.

Review: "The Legend of Smurfy Hollow" Charms; "Slugterra: Slug Power!" Stumbles

thumb-smurfsslugterra

I’ll admit that the Smurfs aren’t my favorite characters in the world, either in their original comic book or later animated forms. 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 […]

Review: "Transformers Rescue Bots: Energize" & "Slugterra: Slugs Unleashed"

thumb-rescuebotsslugterra

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 […]
