Let me hit upon MTV‘s Spider-Man cartoon one more time.
It seems to be getting better. I originally said that it was very good, but maybe not excellent. Now … I think I can say that it’s excellent. Today I caught last week’s episodes (I missed them because I was busy in B-lo) and tonight’s new episodes. It’s hot shizzle. They’re showing episodes out of order, and I sort of assumed that would happen from the start. I think the plan was to put out some on-par episodes while people adjusted to/got their socks blown off by the technology, and then to cue up the really impressive episodes. I liked the Lizard episode from last week, but I thought tonight’s stuff was top notch. Maybe it was just the whole MJ thing … I don’t know; everything is awesome. There’s so much more depth than you’d find on a Saturday morning cartoon. Again people are getting killed, there is actual relationship exploration, things aren’t always simple … when they put out a DVD, I’m gonna snap it up.
Short Take: Have I mentioned Doggy Fizzle Televizzle before? Some of the skits are a little weak (like the Braided Bunch), but most of them are well worth watching, so all in all I’ve enjoyed every episode I’ve seen. It’s on Sundays, right before Who’s Got Game … There’s a guy on this show whose nickname is White Chocolate (He’s a white guy) … Once he’s off the show, can we all (and by we all, I mean Western Civilization) just pretend that he never existed?
