Sad News: DBZ Abridged is Over

Sad news, everybody! The amazing YouTube show Dragonball Z Abridged is over. The creators have decided to call it quits after more than a decade of possibly the greatest parody/homage show of all time.

Seriously. Dragonball Z Abridged is better than Dragonball Z.

I’ve been a fan of the fan-made show for almost all of these 10 years, and it’s sad to see it come to an end. But honestly, the end has come righteously. You can really feel the sadness in the two guys as they explain what happened. They created a masterpiece to be proud of, and to take it this far, that’s a real achievement. So my hat will always be off to them!

Here’s hoping the rest of the Team Four Star output is good! I enjoyed their Let’s Play of Fallout 4 a couple years ago! So at least there’s that.

Also, be sure to binge watch the entirety of DBZA whenever you want!

They’re Going All In With an Animated Mortal Kombat Movie, Apparently

I just heard of this movie and I think it’s rather silly. The people behind Mortal Kombat are coming out with a new straight-to-DVD animated film called Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge. I think the idea is pretty cool, but the execution looks tame.

From that trailer, it looks like they’re just going to do the first Mortal Kombat tournament all over again. How many times do we need this event portrayed? Why does everybody think that’s the most interesting story in Mortal Kombat lore? Hell, the title of the film is about Scorpion, and he seems to be a major player in the movie…why not just do that?

Do the people behind Mortal Kombat really think we care about Liu Kang, Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade? When you’ve got a cool story like that of Scorpion vs. Sub-Zero, why would anybody want Liu Kang to show up?

Last year, I did my own write-up on a plot for a Mortal Kombat movie, one that focused on the second Sub-Zero. He’s a far more interesting character with a far more interesting story than any of the regular Earth realmers. Just putting it out there!

Scorpion’s Revenge comes out this spring.

Clone Wars Looks Epic as All Heck!

I’m a big fan of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars cartoon. I watched it all back in the day and had a blast. And now that Disney+ is a thing, they’ve going to appeal to fans by giving us another season! It’ll be the true last season, and it looks like the most epic Star Wars thing of all time!

Man, that was cool! Ahsoka being awesome! Darth Maul being awesome! Everybody being awesome! This should be a pretty phenomenal season of television, especially in the Star Wars universe. We can survive the movies being only OK if we keep getting amazing Star Wars TV shows like this!

The final season of The Clone Wars comes to Disney+ on Feb. 21.

BoJack Horseman is Ending; I am Not Ready

The TV show BoJack Horseman will come to an end on Jan. 31 with the final batch of episodes. I don’t think I’m ready. BoJack Horseman is probably my favorite TV show of the past few years, and is easily in my Top 5 of all time. It’s both hilarious and emotionally dramatic. A perfect balance!

And it looks like the ending is going to keep the stakes very high.

I don’t know how this is going to end. I’ve read and heard some fan theories, and perhaps I have some of my own. But I don’t want to know what happens in advance. I don’t want any spoilers. I want to just sit back and let it wash over me and hopefully I’ll be happy and at peace with the ending.

This is a damn good show!

Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts Looks Neat!

Another year here is, and so we have another wave of fun new cartoons on Netflix! At least I think that’s how it works. Anyway, coming out later this month is Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts. I just heard of this show when I spotted this nifty trailer on YouTube and I say it looks cool. I’m definitely going to watch.

If Netflix is so keen on starting new cartoons, somebody let them know about the awesomeness that is Gamer Girl & Vixen, huh? Netflix can totally have my phone number!

Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts comes out on Jan. 14!
