New Blogging Idea

    I thought that it might be fun for me to do a Blog series centered around animated shows that are every bit as good as the best live-action shows on T.V. today. I've found that people tend to dismiss animated shows off-hand as being simply 'for children.' However, in my experience, many animated T.V. shows deal with incredibly complex issues, and often combine stunning artistry with great story-telling. Just like comic books I believe that cartoons, anime, etc. are incredibly impactful and receive far too little credit with the public at large. We live in a world where Geek culture is gaining increasing importance, and I know many self-proclaimed Geeks who would agree that these shows helped to shape their lives. So, anyways, I thought for a while I'd post reviews of shows that helped to shape me, and that I believe are simply incredible and need more love.

     I don't really have a name for the series yet, and I don't have any posts, but I have plenty of ideas and plenty of shows I think deserve a review, so I guess I'll reveal the rest of the information with the first post in the series. We'll see how this goes, should be fun.

  1. I can't agree more! It is also funny how most of the general public still think of comic books and animation as "kid's stuff." If any actually watched/read any of it, they would the truth.

    Some of my favorites are: Batman: the Animated Series, Star Wars: the Clones Wars, Death Note, Spectacular Spider-Man, and those are just a few of my favorites.

    I will definitely be interested in this post series.

    Also sorry about the confusion on following your blog, for some reason it wasn't showing up on my Dashboard until recently.



Ok children, here are some ground rules. Keep all posts clean and polite. Flamers and Trollers (unless they are legitimately funny) will be hunted down and destroyed. You are allowed to have, and express, your own opinion but make sure to keep it respectful or else I shall get very cross :).
