    The Venture Brothers

    Episode 509 - All This and Gargantua-2
    Aired January 19th, 2015
    Cartoon Network


    Wow! Now that’s a long break between shows!


    The last time the Venture Brothers had new episodes was roughly a year and a half ago. (Look it up for yourself.) In TV time, that’s an eon. I would love to bitch and moan about this, except . You guys, it’s so good. I mean, The Venture Brothers is one of the best scripted shows on television when it does bother to show up. So complaining seems really petty, and after seeing this I am so high on good Venture vibes.

    Episode 311: Wizard World New Orleans 2015
    by Blake M. Petit, Erin Petit, Mike Bellamy & Kenny Fanguy

    The convention tour has started again, and this week the Showcase gang walks the floor of Wizard World New Orleans 2015. Blake, Erin, Mike and Kenny talk about some of their finds, the challenge of collectible-diving, and ask the true burning question: are we reaching a saturation point for comic book conventions?

    And what's cool this week? Mike is making his way through Dexter and Batman: Zero Year, Kenny is a fan of Gotham, Erin reading Tale of the Body Thief and watching Breaking Bad, and Blake had fun with Ant-Man #1.

    Archer

    Episode 601--The Holdout
    Aired January 8th, 2015
    10:00pm, Teletoon

    The thing about Archer is nothing ever changes. No matter what great upheaval occurs Archer and everyone else around him remain the same. Sure Archer is a daddy, but that doesn't stop him from running away and heading off to some island somewhere getting shit-ass drunk and boinking whatever resembles genetic females. But he can't escape work and now that he's essentially working for the CIA, when the Company calls he has to answer.

    Title: Senso Part Five

    Usagi and his Allies have one last desperate gamble to fight the Invaders.

    Creator: Stan Sakai
    Colours: Tom Luth
    Editor: Diana Schutz
    Publisher: Dark Horse Comics

    The War has entered into a lull, as all wars do. Tomoe's Husband Buichi was instrumental in bringing this about, but the cost was high, and his loss will be missed. In the meantime those Lords that remain and the government in Edo are running out of option in fighting the last Three-Walker. That is until the scientist, Takenoko comes forward with one last crazy idea that may just work.

    I've taken the past couple of weeks off from writing for numerous reasons, including playing Dragon Age and having to rebuild my computer from the hardware on up. I had a quick funeral for all of my saved data, went into a rage that 80 hours of progress were gone, spent a full day going through the headache of getting the computer back up and running, motherboard drivers and all, and now I am back in a happy place. I am happy not just because I am playing again, but my original muse for writing, GTA, is back in the headlines.
