Here’s my audio review of it on Soundcloud.

Watched this as a kid on Comedy Central when I was about 10 or 11 years old. It wasn’t until I looked them up on YouTube I found out they have their own YouTube page with newer people and skits. I watched a few and some of them were a bit gross, like this one about a tampon commercial where the water they show you is red instead of blue. Thought this made me want to look up the original show so I checked it out through the library but they only had seasons 1 and 2 though there was a 3rd season as well.
Watching this show today it feels okay and surreal but if this show was made today it wouldn’t see the light of day in today’s world of SJWs and PC people. This was also where Amy Poehler was able to get her start before she was on Saturday Night Live. As well as some other side members too like Tina Fey. Upright Citizens Brigade is about this team of people underground trying to create chaos since the dawn of civilization. The more I think about it feels like a balance thing where they create chaos to cut the teeth on order since order can’t exist without chaos. There’s also these prank vids at the end of each episode and those prank videos can be risky if they were made today. I’m sure they weren’t mean pranks but you can never be too sure.
Found out they had a studio for this when they did improvisation and it shut down recently though. I still might want to buy the DVDs since this has surreal humor that some people tried to do in the 90s, like the Adventures of Pete and Pete but more adult overtones. Give these a watch and maybe the new stuff when you can and see if it makes you laugh since I was able to get a few laughs here and there myself from the show.
Hearing about this reboot of the CGI cartoon in the 1990’s, Reboot. I was excited and hoped it would pick up a bit later after the show ended. Since the original show ended on a cliffhanger that didn’t get a resolution. Instead, we get a Power Rangers rip off show where out the main villain is some dirty hacker called The Sorcerer and he’s pretty typical in this show.
Binged the first season on Netflix and it just seemed okay and the last episode I was a bit excited, but also a bit insulted. Hope this next season, if they make one, gets better and more fleshed out. Though some people on YouTube say it’s getting worse but I’ll give it a watch myself before I think that.
First saw this on either the Shout TV! App or the Tubi TV app, thinking it would just be like Thunderbirds but in different outfits. This was different, the good different, this show first takes place on Mars in 2068 where some people destroy a Martian City. It feels like a misunderstanding but because of that, the Mysterons think of the Earth as a threat.
The Mysterons can recreate an object or person but they have to destroy the original form first. It seems at first the Mysterons have on physical forms so they use Captain Black of SPECTRUM as their agent. The first episode gets everything rolling and explains who Captain Scarlet is and what happened to him.
SPECTRUM is also this organization that combats the Mysterons threats every episode and is who Captain Scarlet works for. They also have a Flying Fortress with a crew and a squad of female jet fighter pilots called “the Angels”.
After the first episode, it’s the established that Captain Scarlet is himself again and is indestructible. Even though when the doctor explains his condition it sounds like he can regenerate than be indestructible. Captain Scarlet ends up being the way to combat the Mysterons when they tell SPECTRUM what the will do.
When the first few episodes were done I was hooked! The story feels dark and the episodes are around 30 minutes which isn’t very long compared to Thunderbirds. Give this a watch when you can since it has the same Thunderbirds animation but a bit of a darker story to it. You can find this on either the Shout tv! App or the Tubi tv app if you don’t mind commercials in the videos.
Watch mini-marathons of the show on Comedy Central and then on ABC and ABC. The jokes and could away gags weren’t really that funny and sometimes just pointless filler there almost like family guy. Also half of the time there’s this inner monologue probably to hide the fact there isn’t much dialogue at times.
Does much is I bad talk this show it as good writing as a workplace drama. The thing about these workplace dramas is that you need to balance both work and life outside of work. This is why people joke about Grey’s Anatomy because there’s just a lot of doctors talking about their personal life’s most of the time. Scrubs can be good on and off through the final season for like way too much after what we saw at the end of the previous season.

Heard this show aired in America before Japan and it was on Adult Swim. Watching this I felt a Cowboy Bebop vibe, since the director did both that and Space Dandy, incorporating a lot of western influences in his works. The show is about this guy Space Dandy finding rare aliens in space in the far future.
I heard you’re not missing much either subbed or dubbed through the robot vacuum cleaner called QT is auto-tuned in the dub so I guess that’s a plus. Then the robot and Dandy meet this cat alien Dandy calls “Meow” and they all go on these amazing adventures. Even though this narration mentions a war between two empires but I didn’t take that to seriously, yet. Dandy also feels like a parade of either Captain Kirk from Star Trek or Zapp Brannigan from Futurama. Though there are some moments where Dandy has depth, also was surprised that in the dub the guy who voices Dandy, also voices Brook in One Piece, Ian Sinclair. He can also sing which is pretty good for people who CAN sing since if you can’t it can be a bit embarrassing.
I watched this on FunimationNow and the show was split into 2 seasons and season 2 is where Dandy is introduced to a lot of new things. The ending I will also say ends up putting everything full circle in a way, even for new viewers as well. Give this a watch if you can is all I have to say for those who like anime with a bit of a western influence is all since this is amazing.
First hearing about this show I was excited that it was taking place 10 years before the Original Series. Then I heard of all behind the scenes news that went on and delays. Also that they said they would be taking a page from ”Game of Thrones” where the main characters would be killed off. They were even going to get Michael Dorn for a cameo but he was given a small paycheck. And to top it all off they were going to break one of Gene Roddenberry’s rules about Star Trek, that it shouldn’t get political, even though Deep Space Nine did that. The show was also rated TV-MA but they said “just hardcore PG-13″ but one episode didn’t look like it.
The first episode of this show was on tv but it felt dark and unpleasant. The creators said that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel but it felt like it was trying to be something it clearly wasn’t. I binged the rest of the first season since I didn’t want to pay for CBS All Access every month is all. The last half started to feel more like the Star Trek we knew growing up and at the end of the last episode in the first season made me smile. Also, I hope if some of the characters die in style and dignity and don’t end up getting their heads cut off like in Game of Thrones.
Heard also it will be renewed for a few more seasons and people are going back to watching Star Trek: Enterprise since THAT was trying to be a prequel to the original series at times. It’s a good show so far and I heard the next seasons will be more Star Trek, all I had to say when I heard that is, THANK GOD! Since Star Trek Discovery felt like the J.J. Abrams reboot movies and those get attacked for being more Star Wars than Star Trek.
Looking around at Crunchyroll I found and rediscovered this show. I remembered watching this on Adult Swim late at night and what I didn’t know is that is was part 2 of a show in 4 parts. They also made a movie by Miyazaki that I’ve never seen, yet, that is. As well as a show dedicated to the girl in the gang Fujiko Mine which is on the FunimationNow app.
This show is basically Lupin the 3rd, the grandson of this famous thief, and his gang doing heists around the world instead of just Japan. Also, this Interpol Agent Zenagata that tries to capture them though when he tries to catch Lupin the 3rd it’s like Wiley Coyote trying to catch the roadrunner. They were only able to dub 79 episodes though I might want to watch the rest subbed just to see if the Japanese voices were any good.

I’m a little late for this since I wanted to watch the dubbed version of this show on FunimationNow. Kind of grew up with the dub of Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, and even Dragon Ball GT. Even though Dragonball GT was non-canon, as in made up without the creator’s guidelines. I’ll also go over the 3 shows briefly just to kinda give you a feel for the series.
Dragon Ball is mostly our main hero Goku and his friends as they find the Dragon Balls. Goku was based on a Chinese folklore tale “Journey to the West” about a monkey and his adventures. The Dragon Balls have some kind of magic to them and if you find all of them and recite this saying to awaken the dragon, he will give you a wish. Although he can’t give you the same wish twice, and after the wish is received, the Dragon Balls all separate and lose their power for a year. This show seems more grounded compared to the other shows and movies we have now of the Dragon Ball series.
Dragon Ball Z introduces more powerful enemies and space for the most part. Also, there’s a lot of scenes where people “power up”. Where they basically squat a bit and go “Ahhh!” almost like they’re constipated a bit. That would be funny if they were like that when they were constipated though. There is character development through the show too despite all the bad talk I give it.
Dragon Ball GT the creator didn’t even make and hated it, something about they destroyed his work. Also at the end of the show, the narration says Goku was a “Savior” even though he was based on Chinese folklore. I’m also not going to talk about the movies since it feels like some of them are just there for the sake of it all.
Dragon Ball Super so far introduces this cat god that kind of looks like Anubis, called Beerus. Making Goku train harder than ever before, though I’m still trying to binge it when I can and hope to watch it all. I heard there’s a multiverse later in the series and that just opens up more possibilities, even some paths that Goku would have taken maybe. Anyway, most of the dubbed version is on FunimationNow and on Adult Swim if you can stay up that late. I can really feel the effort into this show so far and it’s nice to hear some of the original cast again.
First heard of this show from hearsay but it wasn’t until I found out it wasn’t until I found out Gerry Anderson, the creator of Thunderbirds, did the model work for the show. Also was surprised that Martin Landau and Barabra Bain were in it as well. They were both in the Mission Impossible TV show and I guess this is what they did after it ended.
This show takes place in the retro-future of 1999, this show was also made in 1975 and you can tell from the opening credits. The first episode gets the series going and after that, all the journeys they go on are pretty cerebral. Theirs’s a lot of talk about nuclear radiation and immortality motifs in it so far. I’m still watching it on and off on tubi.tv since the DVDs and digital copies are hard to come by. They also made a 2nd season that’s more on the action side and a 3rd season, though it was canceled last minute.
This show became a cult hit in the later years and you can watch it on tubi.tv if you don’t mind commercials. There’s even a comic about the fate of the earth after the first episode. It’s a pretty good show so far and I’m just going to say this show isn’t Star Trek at times.
