Contrary to appearances, I enjoy new media as well as old. From both Avatar series and the most awesome Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles of 2012 to Filoni's Clone Wars and Rebels, I love great stories. Even when those stories are remakes of childhood favorites. Some of these remakes are far better than any of the… Continue reading My Favorite Streaming Shows this Year
So, it's Saturday morning and I woke up at 0500 hours. What could I possibly do? Well I could fire up some old School Saturday morning fun. That's exactly what I decided to do.

Since I have only seen both films once it… Continue reading Spending Thanksgiving Day with the Avengers

While I am not as familiar with Jon Pertwee's Doctor, I do have an… Continue reading Jon Pertwee: The 007 of the Time Lords
Mego Micronauts' Andromeda. Baron Karza's trusted mount. This actually came earlier in the week, but only now do I have some time to photograph and share it. More than the last two Micronauts I shared, this one has been on my want list since 1977. Apart from the box, Andromeda is complete and in… Continue reading Mail Call: Mego Micronauts Andromeda
