Batman: The Brave and the Bold Season 2 25-26, Season 3 1-4

Monday, May 30th, 2011

One show I really fell behind on this spring was Batman: The Brave and the Bold, partly because I prioritized hour long shows first, and partly because Cartoon Network Video’s release schedule stopped making any sense. But now I’m all caught up again, and I’m here to share with you some sentence fragments that also don’t make much sense (even to me, when trying to decipher my own notes). I think there are spoilers in there, so be careful.

After this, there’s only one other TV show I might post about like this in the near future. But I might experiment with an entirely new TV rambling format over the summer, and if that works out, I’ll probably do that with everything in the fall. So, stay tuned, I guess.


90210 Season 3, Episodes 18 to 22

Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

And now the highlight of my week is gone again. At least until the fall, because 90210 has thankfully been renewed. Luckily I have many other projects and things to help pass the time. And to help you pass the time until I finish those other projects, you can read my thoughts on the end of this season, but of course there are spoilers.


Chuck Season 4, Episodes 21-24

Friday, May 20th, 2011

The news has just come out that Chuck is getting a fifth and final season. Which is great, because the finale to this season just begs for continuation. What an ending! Read on for my brief thoughts of the last few episodes, but note that there are tons of giant spoilers. But that’s not an issue, because I’m sure you’re going to marathon the show over the summer and then join me for the final season in the fall.


Smallville Series Finale

Wednesday, May 18th, 2011

I originally started watching this show back in 2003, and back then I actually enjoyed it, as far as I know. It’s too long ago to remember. But at some point it definitely turned into a chore. The main thing that kept me going was wanting to see the final transformation into Superman, as a reward of sorts for all the time I’d invested. (If that’s a spoiler, where have you been for the last 73 years?) There have been some positive moments mixed in, especially this final season, but it has generally been a negative experience for me that I really should have stopped years ago.

And now the adventures end after all these years. Was it worth all the waiting? You can read my thoughts on it below, which are in a slightly different format than usual. I gave live thoughts on the finale on IRC, and I’ve pasted most of my quotes here. After that, I wrote a final analysis in more complete form. This is full of spoilers, of course, but you can watch the entire thing on the CW’s site yourself (at least for now).


Pokemon Black Log: Part 3

Monday, May 9th, 2011

This was written a little more than a month ago, but I put off making it all legible until now because I had wanted to start Pokemon White before the Victini event ended. And I use the word “legible” loosely, because I pretty much just added capital letters and punctuation to my rambly notes, and that was it.

But enough with the facetious self-deprecation. There was a lot to do in Pokemon Black even after the credit scroll. Such as an irresistible sidequest, catching legendaries, and a third of the region I hadn’t explored yet. Read on for my post-game adventures, full of many many spoilers. You have been warned.
