Black Dynamite - TV Shows
Loving this show so far. In most of the episodes they lampoon '70s celebrities with no mercy. They also made it OK to laugh at Michael Jackson again. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 9, 2012, 3:59 pm

Simpsons, The - TV Shows
A family member forwarded me this blog. I like that this guy explains why the Simpsons was so good as well as how it went bad. Because there is a generation now that has grown up with the lousy Simpsons episodes and have no idea how the show impacted television. http://deadhomersociety.com/zombiesimpsons/ -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 5, 2012, 11:46 pm

Michael J. Fox - Celebrities
Disagree. He was great in BTTF. He was also the highlight of Family Ties, an otherwise unremarkable (yet popular) '80s sitcom. As for his comeback, it's his choice. Although I think if his appearance is "sad", viewers will tune out. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 5, 2012, 11:39 pm

Barack Obama II - Celebrities
kingbk, that's what I don't get about partisan politics. Obama already has the gay and minority demographics in the bag. Why shamelessly pander to them and possibly alienate moderate voters? -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 23, 2012, 11:19 pm

This is why you're supposed to wait until someone has been dead for years before you build a statue of them. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 12, 2012, 1:39 pm

Dragon's Lair Games - Random Topics
I was blown away by the look of this game when I first saw it at Chuck E. Cheese. This game was supposed to be the future of video games. There was a huge line that I had to wait in to play it. When I finally got my turn, some monster was coming at Dirk the Daring, so I moved the joystick. Nothing happened. I died. Then a giant bowling ball came at Dirk and I tried to get away. I died. Then another monster came at Dirk. I tried the "sword" button. I died for the final time. I was done with that stupid game. There was a Saturday morning cartoon of Dragon's Lair on at the time and whenever it was on, I'd bring out my Atari joystick and move it around and say to my brother, "Look, Dirk doesn't do what I tell him; it's just like playing the actual game!" -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 12, 2012, 12:50 pm

Crank Calls/Prank Calls - Random Topics
My friends and I even tape recorded ours! I need to find the tape. The best one was when we called a local business that was rumored to be in debt to the mob. My buddy called him up in a tough-guy voice and said, "Where's my money, [name redacted]!?" And the guy goes, "Scotty!?" And my friend says, "YES. Where's my money!?" and then the man started pleading for "more time". -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 12, 2012, 12:33 pm

Casshern Sins - TV Shows
The original 1973 Casshern series, which has never been released (legally) with English subs, was awesome and fun. Every few decades they do a remake and try to make it "darker and edgier". The '90s version was OK, but still fell short of the original. The 2004 emo live-action version completely sucked. Casshern spent more time moping than kicking robot ass. And there was a overly-blatant anti-Iraq war theme throughout the film that was a distraction. This show Sins was a bit better, but was still too emo for my tastes. I saw the whole thing, but the only thing I remember is Casshern walking through the desert whining about how the state of the world is all his fault. And that Braiking Boss hardly appeared. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 7, 2012, 11:49 am

Challenge of the GoBots - TV Shows
A lot of young people put down the '80s Transformers cartoon. They call it "dated" or "campy". I always tell them to check out "Challenge of the GoBots" to put it in perspective. Here's the exact same premise, except these guys did it all wrong. Bad writing, lame character design, poor continuity, cheap Taiwanese animation, etc. The contrast really helps show how much harder the Transformers people worked to turn out the superior TV show. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 2, 2012, 8:49 pm

Fred Willard - Celebrities
I hear this guy does one hell of a Pee-Wee Herman impression. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 2, 2012, 12:39 pm

Batman - Movie Series
It's hard to say what the future holds. The media was trying to tie this into Batman by reporting rumors that this guy dyed his hair and called himself The Joker, but law enforcement officials say that info was completely false. You're absolutely right that this sicko's actions shouldn't color people's perceptions on Batman, but unfortunately that seems to have happened. WB is pulling advertisement for TDKR for the time being and Nolan has released a statement. The word prior to the massacre was that WB was planning an immediate Batman reboot like Sony did with Spiderman, but I wonder if that's going to change now. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 21, 2012, 3:12 pm

Batman - Movie Series
The senseless Dark Knight Rises massacre today has really cast a pall over the film and the franchise in general. WB would be wise to let this movie franchise rest for a long time. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 21, 2012, 1:23 am

Al Franken - Celebrities
Davis of "Franken & Davis" died today. I wonder if he was the funny one in that duo. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 19, 2012, 7:23 pm

Animal Planet - Random Topics
I was so looking forward to getting this channel (it used to be great). About 50% of the shows are now different reality shows about hillbillies "catchin' critters". The idiotic haunted house one is on all the time, too. Sometimes they have Animal Cops reruns. That seems to be the entirety of their programming. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 18, 2012, 10:07 pm

Cable TV - Random Topics
My dad was a cheapskate and would never get us cable TV. I always vowed that when I grew up I would get it. I'm finally in a financially secure situation and got cable at last as of a week ago. And guess what, it's crap. So many channels, but all those channels are full of reality shows. And I have to pay extra for HD, when it's free over the antenna. When the low promotional price expires in 6 months, I'm probably going to cancel unless the programming improves. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 18, 2012, 9:57 pm

Larry King - Celebrities
I've been told that the guy did know what he was doing once upon a time and he's been coasting on that reputation for decades ever since. He kept working way past his expiration date because he had all those wives and kids to support. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 18, 2012, 9:19 pm

Joe Paterno - Celebrities
The guy sure knew the right time to check out of this world, that's for sure. Too bad his buddy Jerry Sandunsky didn't follow JoePa's example. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 13, 2012, 12:45 am

Family Guy - TV Shows
The only thing dumber than Family Guy is Family Guy fans. I've lurked on their message boards before. They all seem to be about 14 years old and don't get any of the pop culture references that the show relies on. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 7, 2012, 7:33 pm

ThunderCats (2011) - TV Shows
One of the few '80s remakes that surpassed the original. So naturally, the show is all but cancelled. Thanks, Cartoon Network. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 7, 2012, 2:52 am
