  1. it's fine, just... pick your battles dude
  2. how in god's name does theory of a deadman still have new songs

  3. What'cha Listening To?

    ...eh. It's not like it was a bad cover, but I feel like I've heard this style redone for all kinds of movie trailers, the "darker" version of a classic song. It's just not my thing. "The Sky is Falling" - Junkhouse
  4. I'm sorry I don't think I need to justify not caring for a mediocre band that never seeks to evolve their sound or do anything interesting, when there are bands from then and now that I would much prefer to listen to that cover the same topics with more bite and passion.
  5. so... what do you want from me exactly? you have your opinion, I have mine
  6. boy i sure do love me some rage against the machine lite

  10. What'cha Listening To?

    "Never Tear Us Apart" - Bishop Briggs Ugh, one way to get into my bad graces is cover a song by one of my favourite 80's bands for a 50 Shades soundtrack.
  11. Love's Labours Lost in Space Fry, Bender, and Leela travel to a doomed planet to save the animal life there. On the way, they have an uncomfortable encounter with Zapp Brannigan who attempts to seduce Leela and locks the others away. I've bitched and moaned about the series not focusing enough on who I find the more interesting characters in the past review, so it seems fitting that, along with some new character introductions, we get what is very much a Leela-centred episode, with Fry almost taking a backseat. Thank Christ. It's almost as though the series knew it had pushed its limits with the number of Fry episodes in a row and chose to focus on Leela instead. Definitely a smart move in my book. I do like how we learn more about Leela and what motivates her. I very much enjoy her personality. She's an animal lover, she has high standards for dating but also wishes to find genuine companionship. She's a very well-rounded and likable character, and I appreciate this episode for exploring it. Speaking of exploring, during the expedition the three run into Zapp Brannigan, a new character to this series and one that would recur as the series continued. Oh man, this guy is great. You can really tell that this role was tailor-made for Phil Hartman to take on. Unfortunately, as he died tragically in '98, Billy West had to take over. And while West is no Hartman, he does do the character (and the late actor) justice with hilariously sleazy delivery to a completely pathetic character. I also very much enjoy his assistant, Kipp. I hope to see a lot more of them in the future, they're a great comedic duo. So we've reached near the end of the review, and here's where I would typically gripe and grouse about the things I didn't like. But honestly? I can't think of much wrong here. They actually did attempt an emotional story arc to be taken somewhat seriously with Leela, and it just plain works. I love the resolution where she adopts Nibbler, who is a damn cute little guy despite his voracious appetite. The way they get out of their situation in the end with Nibbler's help is really funny too. I love how this show takes the themes of space and the future and milks them for every opportunity they can get. Folks, we hit a really good one this time around. A great one, even. In fact, I'm giving it the first (of what I hope to be many)... 10/10 Scattered Thoughts and Observations: Okay, if I were to nitpick one thing: "Buh" is not a catchphrase. I like Amy's character so far, but she needs to pick a new catchphrase. She's not going to pick a new one, is she? Sigh... Bender is honestly really cute at points. I love his giggling glee at learning why two animals of each species need to be taken on the ship. Just every time the period between now and the 31st century is referenced is great. Who knew randomly wearing rings was in fashion at one point? I love the dichotomy of referencing dated customs in a future world. It's fiendishly clever. I don't know if this was at all intentional, but Zapp Brannigan's book cover being styled similarly to The Cat in the Hat is a great stealth joke if it was. I also like how Zapp's physique is nowhere close to being an actual macho man when you strip away the suit. He's a lot like Johnny Bravo, just a fun character to punch down on. This series is really starting to come together.
