  • The science fiction cartoon adaptation of <em>Spaceballs</em> caught us a little off guard here at the offices of IGP. To be honest, it had been talked about for so long, we weren’t even aware it was finished until right before it aired. It’s an okay cartoon, but it lacks much of the flair of the original movie, resorting to cheap boob jokes most of the time. Well, okay, the movie did that as well, but they also had a stellar cast and a distinct lack of low-budget Flash-type animation. It got us thinking about all the animated spin-off series that have come and gone. Some never got off the ground at all, while others were quickly cancelled.

  • Fear not, dear reader. This won't be my usual rant about how much J.J. Abrams sucks, how his vision of <em>Star Trek</em> is totally sexist and how I'm sick and tired of apologists saying they cast the right guy for the job, in regards to the whitewashing of Khan Noonien Singh. I mean seriously, would you say that if a blonde woman was cast as Uhura?

  • What makes for a really cool space battle? For me, it's a combination of visuals and music. Don't hide the all the good stuff by focusing on the main characters on the bridge. Show the battle in all of its chaos. It has to make your heart pound and you've got to have a stake in it. If it leaves you cold, I'm looking at you Battle over Coruscant, it's not a good space battle.

  • I've talked about how much I hate stunt casting before, now I want to discuss something else. Sort of, the opposite of stunt casting. It's a character that only appears in a few episodes, but is so interesting, you keep hoping that character will become a series regular.
