In Which I Rank Every Episode From Star Wars: Visions Season 2
May the Fourth has come and gone, and with it a new season of Star Wars: Visions. I think this is a great little show, and a great idea overall. Sign up a bunch of animation studios from around the world and have them put together their own short Star Wars cartoon. They don’t have to feature any familiar characters and don’t have to be in continuity. Just use Star Wars iconography and tell your own story. It’s a great idea and has resulted in some great cartoons.
I very much enjoyed the first season, when they focused on anime studios. You can check out my rankings on the season 1 episodes here. I also enjoyed the second season a whole lot. They opened up to Western animation studios as well as others around the world, so it wasn’t strictly anime-focused. I can’t wait to see what they do next year!
Join me after the jump for my ranking of all nine episodes of Star Wars: Visions season 2. Expect FULL SPOILERS for the whole season. And feel free to share your own rankings and reviews in the comments below!Read the rest of this entry
The Muppet Mayhem Show is Live!
This weekend, I will be watching The Muppet Mayhem, a new TV show about the fictional muppet band Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem. I like the Muppets. Who doesn’t like the Muppets? Obviously they haven’t had the greatest success on TV and movies in the past few years, but perhaps projects like The Muppet Mayhem will turn things around.
They’ve got all these great Muppet characters, why not do specialized shows about certain individuals? It doesn’t always have to be an attempted revival of the classic Muppet Show with modern sensibilities. Do something unique, like The Muppet Mayhem! The trailer looks great, and my friends have been raving about it so far. So I’m very excited to watch this weekend!
The Muppet Mayhem is streaming on Disney+.
6 Thoughts on the Third Season of The Mandalorian
You know what’s weird? I went looking through my archives and apparently I didn’t do review lists for the first two seasons of The Mandalorian. Why not? I did them for The Book of Boba Fett and Obi-Wan. But why not for The Mandalorian? What was I thinking? I loved the first two seasons! I love this whole show! I wish I could go back in time in my own mind and figure out what happened. At least present day Sean can make up for those mistakes.
TV Rating: 8/10 – Very Good
I really enjoyed the third season of The Mandalorian. I know a lot of people haven’t liked it, but I don’t know what those people are thinking. It was a fun season, full of neat episodes, and some great character moments. This has been a fantastic show from beginning to end, and I can’t wait to see where Din Djarin and Grogu show up next. They’re great new characters and they went on quite the adventure this season — even if it was a dumb movie to have their reunion in The Book of Boba Fett. What were they thinking?! Anyway, since I watch all the shows, I wasn’t lost, and I had a good time with The Mandalorian season 3.

Our First Teaser for The Venture Bros. Finale Movie
I’m a big fan of The Venture Bros. At least I was, back when it was a show. It was really good, but I was also frequently annoyed at how long it took for those new, short seasons to come out. They were good, but never meaty enough to justify the wait. The Venture Bros. was one of those shows that, instead of delivering big, cool story things, just kept adding more small story things.
Then it got cancelled. But the movie is coming later this year! Here’s a sneak peek.
Looks fine to me! And I can even remember how the last season ended, so this short scene makes sense. One hopes this movie finally does the thing and puts this universe to rest. Though it probably won’t. Not settling all the big, ongoing stories is probably the point at this point. And that’s fine. Just getting this movie will be enough of a hoot.
The Venture Bros.: Radiant is the Blood of the Baboon Heart is coming out sometime later this year.
The Penguin TV Show At Least Looks Good
This in-production teaser trailer for The Penguin TV show arrived last week, when HBO Max announced the change to their subscription service. I don’t really know what to make of this show yet, but it looks good, at the very least.
Colin Farell obviously disappears into the makeup, as we all know. And the character seems really cool. But what’s this show gonna be? Just the Penguin being a dangerous gangster guy? He doesn’t have a family, and I doubt they’re going to put him in therapy like an obvious Sopranos rip-off. So what’s this show gonna feature? And didn’t we just get a show starring the Penguin? Wasn’t that what Gotham was about? It was half about the Penguin, surely, right?
Anyway, I still think they should have made a Gotham Central TV show. That would have been killer!
