Watching Adult Swim and my big thought was: How the hell did these Loiter Squad kids get their own show? Seriously, in what world does that happen?

I think my interest in Adult Swim programming is severely curving away. I'm still panting after the new season of Venture Bros, I'd love some more Metalocalyse, and I'll probably never give up watching the American Guy (sic), but there's not much else on Adult Swim that I care about. All this live action crap is pretty much my limit and I can't take anymore. The only problem I have is finding another network full of late night adult cartoon shows. And there's where the problem starts.

Whatever happened to watchable TV?

Just because we have the Netflix technology, why does that mean 24-hour infomercials on a dozen channels, then nothing good on any of the other channels? It's infuriating, like all the networks decided to sell-out at one time. This is the perfect  opportunity for some network like TNT, USA, or WGN to start showing episodes of shows I would otherwise have nothing to do with, but that end up being super awesome. Think Xena, Hercules, Charmed, The Closer, and Rules of Engagement. Those were all shows that perked my late night interest straight into prime time, and it's time for another show.

And if some network is looking for a cool show to syndicate, might I suggest The Tribe? It's that dystopian future show about the world after every person over 16 died of a horrible plague, and the kids left alive have to figure out how to go on. They color their hair bright hues, paint their faces, form tribes, and go to war against each other. Plus there's the army of kids driving around on tanks taking over the world.

Jack was always my favorite on the show, but Lex was the kid with the real story behind him. He was a bully that had a backstory of casual abuse. He's vulnerable but hides it, which results in him coming across as a frightening jerk. He got power, then screwed everything up. He pretends he knows how to read when no one bothered to ever teach him; and in fact the other kids are kind of rude about it. And he knew how to wear leather, feathers, and a cowboy hat. Plus he was on for the entire run of the show.

They're promoting the last episodes of SGU and I'm just like, "Eh." I never got into that whole deal, I watched the first episode and basically said, "Do not want." That was that.

I used to watch SGA, that is until everything got so stupid, which was when Carter was brought in. She's like the ultimate Mary Sue, which ruins everything.

I know some people would argue against that, but come on. She's the most brilliant scientist, the best soldier, she's better looking than all the ladies, yadda, yadda, yadda. With her around to take over the military contingent, why did they need Sheppard? With her around being the best scientist EVAR than why did they need McKay? It was just one of those things that ruined the show for me and basically disenchanted me with the whole Stargate thing.

It was like when BSG ran away with itself... Caprica is kind of cool, but there's just something a bit cold about it to me.

Currently watching retro episodes of Doogie Howser, M.D. on Hulu.com. How frickin' crazy is that? Neil Patrick Harris looks so tiny and adorable, like a little moppy haired doll.

All his little issues make me laugh and seeing the clothes they wear makes me want to gouge my eyes out. And BTW, his dad seems like kind of a dick. Way to put the pressure on your super genius son to succeed OR ELSE.

And I love the fact that Doogie was the first nerd blogger in the world. That's cool ::snerk:: though his... what, Xenith?... computer totally takes me back to the horrors of my youth and the dreaded blue screen, white text sans interweb world where I couldn't look up crazy Japanese skat porn on youtube or wow the nobodies with all the useless datums I gathered off Wikipedia.

This show is like a time capsule never meant to be open... but still a kinda dork pleasure.

Goong S, AkA Prince Hours, AKA Imperial Household, AKA Palace S, AKA Goong Special
20 episodes total

At this point in time I have only watched 4 episodes, and while it's very flamboyant and entertaining, it's not quite as good in my mind as Goong/Princess Hours. The acting is somewhat stiffer, the main character (Se7en?) is kind of goofy and weird, and it is very much a K-drama. Still, I will probably buy the DVD version when it comes out just to round out my Goong collection.

So far, none of the characters from the first series have made an appearance, but maybe that will change(?)

What it's about: The idea behind Goong is that Korea is still a monarchy, like the UK, and royals living in the palace. Goong S is about a delivery boy for a Chinese restaurant that discovers he is actually a prince. His mother left the palace before he was born, which is why no one ever knew about his existence. His father dies of cancer. Kang Hoo is taken from his life as a commoner and moved to the palace where he is to train to be the next heir to the throne... never mind that his "cousin" Lee Joon was pretty much assured the title of Emperor in the future and really doesn't want to be pushed out of his position.

This series has some beautiful sets and scenery which makes it watchable just for that. Kang Hoo is not as loveable a character as Shin Chae-gyung from Princess Hours and is actually kind of weird looking in most of the scenes (those LIPS!) But still, it's entertaining and that's always worth something.

Goong S will help you get your fix of Goong until Goong 2 finally makes an appearance.

Wow, just finished watching the first episode of "Princess Princess D." That's yet another cute anime [Princess Princess] ruined by the live-action weird.

Currently noshing on a Korean pear and swearing about my having to go to work in an hour. Stupid graveyard shift... Li'l Debbie better get her ass trained so I can go back to swing, that's all I'm saying.

BTW, I would totally have to kill my self if they made a live-action Angel Sanctuary...

Holy shizmet, the Comedy Central Roast of William Shatner was brutal and largely unfunny. And then the great man got up himself and tore everyone a new butthole... and all I could do was wince and change the channel because that was something I never wanted to see. Sure, William Shatner plays a screwed up lawyer on that show he's on, but geez.

Shatner must have been drinking all night, that's all I can say. And when he got up, it was nothing but an ugly situation.

And what was with all the gay jokes about Andy Dick? Everyone was taking potshot at him and he really looked like he was getting pissed. None of it was funny. It was just uncomfortable and kind of depressing that Captain Kirk has fallen that far. Starfleet will never take him back now and damn the torpedoes.

BTW, why the hell would anyone agree to be the subject of a Comedy Central Roast? It never goes well for anyone, and it always just turns into an ugly debacle that people are a long time forgetting (Courtney Love at the Roast of Pamela Anderson.) If someone came up to me and offered me a million dollars to be the subject of a CC Roast, I'd say hell no, 'cause that's not something you can ever walk away from.

Story:Georgia "George" Lass dies and finds out there's life, or unlife, after death as a Grim Reaper, one of the Undead. Extremely snarky and funny, though there are some serious moments when George's family is shown dealing with their loss. It's interesting to watch a family fall apart then pull itself back together. And George realizing she can never go home again is kind of heartbreaking.
Art Style: Clean, crisp imagery.
Slash Factor: 4 out of 5. Mason is just waiting to be used. Moments of Rube-ism, though I'm completely warped. Possibility of femslash because of all the female characters, though if you're going to write it, you have to do it right. Seriously.
Score: 5 out of 5
Watchability: 5 out of 5
Will I Buy It: Oh yeah. I'm already looking around for a cheap price and I've got big plans for pre-ordering season 2.

When George deals with Herbig, (Herbig brown eyes//Herbig fat ass) I just want to cringe because I've actually met people like that.

Still, Dead Like Me is one of my favorite series' and I already have plans to buy both collections.

If you've read the Bleach manga, some parts of the anime are pretty disappointing. The first few episodes leave something to be desired, but there's something oddly appealing about the artistic style used and there are signs that the series will *probably* get better, though I've only seen eps 1-10 so far. I've got more on my queue and it should only be a matter of time before I see if the series gets any better.

Story: Ichigo has phenomenal spiritual power and is tapped to be a shinigami (Death God). From the manga, it's obvious the characters are a little... odd, and that definitely carries over to the anime, though definitely not to a Fooley Cooley extreme.
Art Style: reminiscent of Saiyuki
Slash Factor: maybe a 1. Very Shonen-Jump, not Hane to Yume. Probably gets a higher slash rating for a possible f/f pairing.
Score: 3 out of 5
Watchability: 3 out of 5
Will I Buy It: Yes. I'm a fool for mental torture.
