Media Reviews
I spent much of the weekend isolating myself, due to having some sort of sore throat, so I consumed a great deal of video media.

Resident Evil: Apocalypse. Don't bother. Not even when it comes out on cable. Idiot plot, bad acting, shipshod directing, already-seen-it FX, cheap production budget, not even internally consistant.

Justice League Unlimited - The Greatest Story Never Told. Three stars. JLU is worth watching, if that's the sort of thing you like to watch.

Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends - Dinner Is Swerved. I cannot recommend this show enough. Craig McCracken is truely one of the greats.

My Life as a Teenage Robot. I finally forced myself to watch the three Sheldon episodes: "Attack of the 5 1/2 Ft. Geek", "Shell Game", and "Saved By The Shell". I love this show, but had a hard time watching these three, mainly because I empathize maybe too much with Sheldon Lee. Poor guy.

Duck Dodgers. "The New Cadet / The Love Duck" and "The Fudd". These have been sitting in my ReplayTV for several weeks, and I finally got around to watching them. "The Fudd" was especially good, for the writing, for the gags, and for the concept itself (an organized metapsychic hegemonizing swarm converts it victims into "Fudds" (as in Elmer). Dodgers, Cadet, and X-E luckily were accidentally pre-immunized, and have to band together, gather some more of the Immunity, and carry it to the Mother Fudd to save their respective homeworlds, and to stop the Fudds' mad plan to.... INVWADE THE SWUN! BWA-HWA-HWA!

Another one to watch

You've apparently overlooked "The Venture Brothers" on Cartoon Network. I wasn't sure about it at first, but it's hysterical. The vague wave at a premise is that it's a spoof of Johnny Quest. We have Dr. Venture (the neurotic not-to-say-psychotic son of the original Doctor Venture), his two sons Dean and Hank, and his bodyguard Brock Samson. The original Dr. Venture was a true Doc Savage type superman of science; the current Dr. Venture...not so much.

Brock Samson is by far my (and most peoples', I suspect) character. Voiced by Patrick Warburton (he played the Tick, and voiced Superman in the Jerry Seinfeld credit card films on the net), he's huge, he's deadly, he's surrounded by lunatics.

Joe-Bob Sinanju says check it out!
