- The schadenfreude I get while watching Simon Cowel verbally assault the tone deaf karaoke singers in the initial auditions is the only thing entertaining about American Idol.
-The Adam West Batman series is easily my favorite version of the caped Crusader. While I love the dark, noir feel of the modern version of Batman in the comics, movies and B:TAS, the 60's show was unique and bizarre combination of Silver age camp and so-bad-it's-good overacting that it never fails to entertain me. If they ever make a third game in the Arkham series I hope there's a mode that adds the "BIFF!" "POW!" "WHAM!" effects when fighting.
-I never got the appeal of the Scooby Doo series. I don't hate it but I always felt the premise was far too simple and repetitive to carry the show for over 4 decades.
and for the big finale:
-I really don't care much for the Toonami revival. As much I loved running home everyday for my 2-3 hour anime fix as a kid and seeing it revived once for a bit of nostalgia wanking I don't see how it can be success these days. Toonami's ultimate failure was due to the rapid expansion of media through the internet, before the days of youtube, megaupload, bittorrents, and crunchyroll the only way their target demographic could see anime for free was on their afternoon block. However, anyone can now google their desired anime and watch any episode, anytime with little to no ads, censorship, or "baka-gaijin" dubbing.
The fact is that Toonami as we remember it is an archaic form of broadcasting anime and just can't compete with the internet. Despite my apathetic feeling towards the revival I'm not being a cynic out of spite, I'd actually be glad if by some miracle I'm proven wrong and Toonami regains its status as the main source of great anime in the west. I simply refuse to wear nostalgia goggles if they blind me from reality of the situation.
PS: Moltar was a better host than any version of Tom.
