    I wonder who decided that the Italian BTAS theme should sound like an anime opening.

    Kinda stunned how he's the only guy on Late Night to address this tragedy, so far. Kimmel wasn't phased, and Fallon is on Reruns due to the passing of his Mom last weekend.

    Meyers’s clips haven’t gone up yet. Anything from Conan or Corden?
    EDIT: Corden

    Everyone losing their mind over the (potentially) upcoming Lord of the Rings tv-show, and here I am remembering the one made by Finnish that came out before Jackson's trilogy.

    A review of the Lego Movie spin-off apparently given the least amount of buzz on this forum:

    I feel sorry for the children who had nightmares from Big Birds original design.

    It’s like they plucked everything off the top and reshaped the skull to accommodate

    Apparently, the Canadian Media Fund has put Due South (and others) on YouTube.

    The first 2-3 episodes of Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters provide fun and intrigue, though it feels too early for me to say how it compares to other cartoons I've seen from these writers, or Voltron: Legendary Defender. However, Stretch has at least become the first Netflix cartoon since Voltron for which I finished more than one episode.

    The latest episode of Stretch Armstrong I saw seems like one of the last things Miguel Ferrer did, complete with a dedication to him.

    EDIT: IMDB says he provided vocals for three of the episodes Netflix put up so far.

    I’m surprised we still haven’t heard how much Ferrer was able to do of Young Justice Outsiders before his passing. Or whether G. Gordon Godfrey will be recast for that matter considering Tim Curry’s stroke

    The Stretch Armstrong episodes I saw today include one I liked a lot, thanks to some fleshing out of Keith David's character, and one I liked less than usual, thanks to what seemed like a long plug for toy vehicles.

    So did anyone watch the premiere of Big Hero 6: The Series?

    Got to say, I felt a bit let down by it. There are some nice character moments, but it wastes too many of it's heroes, what Wasabi, GoGo and Honey Lemon's dialogue can mostly be summed up with is "We can't be heroes anymore, it was a one time thing", not given much else beyond that. That gives the pilot's second-most prominence to... Fred, yeah not even Baymax, even when the special is titled "Baymax Returns." Fred is a guy who could be fine in small doses but given such a lot of screentime with Hiro, he gets pretty grating. Then there is a case of how stiff the characters move at times, particularly when they talk, I feel like they should have gone with a bit more of an expressive artstyle.

    Maybe things will improve when the series does go along, but as of right now

    Yeah, Fred was a bit too much in this special and I have to agree that it really felt like that didn't give the rest of the team much else to do. I've also seen others such as people on DVDizzy complain about the animation for the show. It wasn't bad but like the movie, it left me feeling underwhelmed.

    What'd you guys think of their new VAs though? Even if its only two of them that got replaced, I don't think Brooks Wheelan was a good choice for Fred. I bet they tried to ask TJ Miller back, but he probably thought he was too good for this Show.

    I liked Khary Payton as Wasabi.

    The altogether ookiness of Wednesday Partridge was my favorite part of The Partridge Family. RIP David Cassidy

    TJ Miller reprises his role in the How to Train Your Dragon Netflix series, so I kind of doubt it was because he thought doing a TV spin-off was somehow beneath him.

    The thing about Big Hero 6 is the characters in the movie were boring and it bugged the hell out of me in the movie and here it feels like they do little to rectify it.

    Especially after being Robbie on Gravity Falls. Or the talking mucus from the Mucinex commercials

    The Partridge Family, is still one of my favorite shows, of all time. Rest in peace, David Cassidy.
