What I remember about Reboot VS reality

Reboot is a TV show from back in the day (1994-1996).  At the time it had cutting-edge computer-generated 3D graphics.  It turns out that I remember the show completely wrong.

(Plenty of spoilers ahead.)

Where Are All The Blue Collar Superheroes

The simplistic employment dividers in the world are based on the worker’s collar. Blue collar workers generally do manual labour – construction, plumbing, garbage collector, etc. White collar workers push paper and wear suits – accountants, lawyers, bankers, etc. Today, I’m not sure why, but I started thinking about the way that superheroes earn their money. Most of the ones that I could think of are definitely more white collar. Continue reading

Requiem for a Spock

Last week, we got the devastating news that Mr. Leonard Nimoy passed away. As I’m sure you’ve noticed in previous posts, Star Trek is a franchise that is near and dear to my heart. Nimoy’s influence on Star Trek extends beyond simply playing the role of The Enterprise’s first officer to being a creative force with almost as much influence as Gene Roddenberry. In fact, he actually had more say in the movies from Star Trek 2 to 6 than Roddenberry did. (Gene kinda screwed the pooch on that first one.)

Here, then, I’d like to present some of my favorite Nimoy moments from Star Trek and beyond. Continue reading

Graham Makes An Observation

Something occurred to me this weekend that I’d like to discuss here. It’s not important, or culturally relevant, just something that struck me. I also have not any research into this, so it’s purely anecdotal based on stuff that is rattling around in my head. So, with those disclaimers out of the way, here’s my thought: Until recently, the most important characters within the Marvel universe were the least important outside of it. Continue reading

Turtle Soup – Episode 3

Back for another episode of TMNT! The episode begins shortly after the last one ended, with Splinter recovering and April remarking that she hasn’t been home in a week. That still shocks me – the continuity for a Saturday Morning Kids show. Continue reading

Spider-Man at the Movies

This is news from a week ago, but I felt that if I didn’t address it I would be doing YOU, my loyal reader, a disservice. It was officially confirmed that Spider-Man would now be able to appear in the Marvel movies after a deal was made with Sony Pictures. This means that Spidey will now be able to appear in upcoming movies featuring Captain America, Iron Man, and the rest of the Avengers.  This is good news for everyone! Continue reading
