I never did get to talk about the quick end to the new “Monday Night Wars,” but I don’t think I had much to say about it anyway. I still contend that TNA’s side did start off well, but quickly fell back into mediocrity and apparently lost the interest of most Monday night viewers. But the return to Thursdays was back in May, and I want to be more recent and relevant than that. In June, Dixie Carter (the TNA Wrestling president, not the recently deceased Designing Woman) began talking about some huge secret thing that would “change TNA on every level.” Not that I’m calling her a liar, but I have a hard time believing that any one thing or person is capable of swooping in and saving TNA anymore. Except maybe Paul Heyman, but apparently it’s bigger than him. What the hell could it be, then!?
(Also, I realize this is probably my worst headline yet, but that’s exactly why I had to use it.)
I’d been wanting to see 2007′s Juuken Sentai Gekiranger for a while, partly because I’d heard good things about it, and partly because the martial arts theme intrigued me. A couple weeks’ worth of insomnia and aches allowed me to finally watch the series very recently, from beginning to end. And I really liked it, mostly. No spoilers.
