Transformers Season Two: In 150 Words!


Autobots battle Decepticons in an anime style world. Autobots are allied with humans and the police. Both robot parties are after the ALLSPARK. Some young girl holds the key, literally, to helping the Autobots succeed against all things evil.

Silly, uninteresting, and dull, this is a definite pass for any fans of the old-school cartoon or the Michael Bay film. While an overarching story exists throughout the entire season, it’s hard to believe kids would care at all about the issues facing the Autobots.

This is one animated series not worth the time or money. Wait for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen coming this year. You’re time and money will be better spent. I know that’s my plan.

Transformers: Animated – Season Two gets a metal bending C. ‘Cause if you bend a metal pipe, that’s the shape it makes. Or a V, but that’s not a letter grade for something.

Batman: The Brave and the Bold-New Series Impressions!


As with all popular or successful brands and lines, they are hard to kill, and find themselves being revamped nearly every four years or so. Stretching back to the 1920’s, Batman has been perhaps one of the most popular and successful character lines ever created. Flourishing briefly in the 1930s and 40s as a movie serial and then 1960’s as a television show and cartoon, it wasn’t until Tim Burton’s seminal BATMAN in 1989 that the character fully breathed life as a full-fledged character. Since that time there have been five feature films (one of which was actually worthy of the title, and the most recent Dark Knight appropriately titled as it really has nothing to do with Batman….uugghh), as well as least four distinct animated series (again, only one of which could be considered perfect, that being the first one). But enough of this sappy nostalgic wallowing, ON to the FUTURE…or is it BACK….to the…Past..? Continue reading “Batman: The Brave and the Bold-New Series Impressions!”
