Rimba Racer – Season Two, Episode Five Review: “Into The Storm”

by Joshua Baileyon June 23, 2018
In the season one finale, Riq’s survival wasn’t the twist that stunned me. His survival was fairly predictable, as it’s a common trope for stories like these. Meika’s betrayal of the team, however, was not something that I saw coming. It was the thing that left me floored and I still remember how I felt […]

Rimba Racer – Season Two, Episode Four Review: “A Lesson In History”

by Joshua Baileyon June 9, 2018
I previously mentioned how it felt like the Miles and Tag subplot was starting to overstay its welcome. I’m glad, then, that this episode puts it to bed once and for all, as it clears the air between the two of them and gives us a whopping feast of backstory. Nearly all of the episode […]

Channel Frederator Tackles The “CalArts Style”

by Peter Paltridgeon June 7, 2018
Will the “CalArts Style” eradicate all originality on television forever? Is there a dark conspiracy afoot by a monopolistic academic institution to control the look and feel of every animated TV series? Of course not, don’t be THAT guy. But if you need convincing otherwise, this excellent video from Channel Frederator summarizes where animation has […]

Rimba Racer – Season Two, Episode Three Review: “Tunnel Vision”

by Joshua Baileyon June 2, 2018
When I first started watching Rimba Racer, it wasn’t until halfway through the season, when King made his offer to Tag, that I truly fell in love with it. The races were fun and I always looked forward to them, but it was the conspiracies and the drama that got me hooked. This episode, then, […]

by Peter Paltridgeon May 30, 2018

The first thing you need to know is that a mainline Pokemon game for Switch has been confirmed, and this isn’t it. This is a watered-down Poke-title for beginners, newcomers and young […]

Rimba Racer – Season Two, Episode Two Review: “Right On Time”

by Joshua Baileyon May 26, 2018
I’ve always loved clock levels in video games. Tick Tock Clock, in Super Mario 64, was one of the best levels in the game. With its spinning gears and swinging pendulums, the level’s moving parts made for a challenging platforming experience. It’s rarer to find cartoons that make use of the setting, but clock towers […]
