Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors Looks OK

This Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors cartoon is moving forward, and I support anything that will give us an animated Squirrel Girl. Granted, I think they should just make Ryan North’s Unbeatable Squirrel Girl comic into a 1-1 adaptation, but that might just be me.

I’m mostly surprised at the continued use of Inferno, the Inhuman. How is that guy still a thing? Not only was he front and center on that failure to turn the Inhumans into the next big thing, but he’s got generic fire powers! Does Marvel really not have any worthwhile male teen superheroes? Isn’t Ghost Rider a teenager?

I dunno. Maybe watch, maybe don’t. We’ll see.

The New She-Ra Looks Pretty Good!

I don’t remember if I ever watched the She-Ra cartoon back in the 1980s, and I watched a lot of cartoons in the 80s. I definitely watched He-Man. I also watch a lot of cartoons these days, and the new She-Ra and the Princesses of Power looks pretty good to me!

We’re in an odd place right now. There are a lot of awesome cartoons, like Steven Universe, Adventure Time and more…but some of those are ending. We’ll need new cartoons. And so many of those cartoons appear to be reboots all of a sudden, instead of original ideas.

We have the DuckTales reboot, the Voltron reboot, then there’s that Thundercats reboot, now here’s a She-Ra reboot and there’s even been an announcement of a Care Bears reboot. So much for original cartoon ideas. I hope I live long enough for the Steven Universe reboot.

Let’s Just Keep Talking About Spider-Man!

I’m definitely loving the Spider-Man video game on Playstation 4! It’s just plain great! So great, that I fear I’ve almost beaten it! This game was supposed to sustain me for a couple weeks! Why does it have to be so much fun and yet so quick?

Either way, our friends at Tell It Animated jumped on that sweet Spider-Man search engine glory and did up a video of his movie costumes!

Those are some talented animators at Tell It Animated! Somebody get them an Emmy! Or however that works…I’ve got more video games to play.

Let’s Celebrate My Birthday With Some BoJack Horseman!

Happy Birthday to me! And what better way to celebrate than with the trailer for the new season of my favorite show, BoJack Horseman! Season 5 starts later this month!

Don’t worry about getting me anything for my birthday. The number of things I’ve written off in the past few months as a ‘birthday gift to myself’ would make you shake your head in shame at my poor money management skills. No worries, I’m likely having a blast today.

For the Third Time, Let’s Underestimate a Star Wars Cartoon

Star Wars: Resistance is happening and I bet I’ll love it. But right now, I don’t care for it. I don’t like the animation style, and everything about it seems so…I dunno. I don’t want to say ‘bland’, more like ‘manufactured’. But that’s the same thing I thought about Star Wars: Rebels, and that turned out to be a nifty show.

I’m just going to keep underestimating these Star Wars cartoons, and then keep having my doubt laughed back into my face when the shows turn out to be good.
