Yeah...but if I said the Misfits I referenced are 'hot' this post would get weird like all the rest of 'em.

GEM was pretty adult in ways. And the characters looked adult. One of the last animated shows of that ilk. However, as often happened in the 80s, the intro/outro were done in higher quality than a lot of the episodes. Often smaller studios (usually korean) were hired ad hoc to finish out scenes, the quality obvious. M.A.S.K. intro was killer, and the first few episodes were as or close to as good. Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends, and Dungeons and Dragons had great intros, and the episodes were mixed.

It looks like WWF(E), TMNT, My Little Pony and Power Rangers toys will be the episodes on the next season.

Nice.  TMNT should draw in enough viewers alone to get another season renewed.  I've still got my tmnt figures... it was probably the first action figure line where the sculpt and paint quality were enough to where they are really nice to display.  The old rubbery wwe figures were great.... a solid mass of plastic, no poses, but they were sturdy enough to "wrestle" with.

  • Yeah, owning a MAME cab only leads to owning real ones. MAME just isn't good enough. It's a gateway drug.

Awesome! I thought the theme song limited us to "an eight-part documentary series," so this is good to hear.

Yep, see the last few posts. They also now have The Movies That Made Us, which features Die Hard, Ghostbusters, Home Alone, and Dirty Dancing. Every episode is good.

I should have made a post but assumed you guys got the same Netflix email alert I did.  Both are quite good.  Amazon Prime dropped a ton of content as well.... The expanse season 4, which is fantastic and Ms. Mazel season 3, which is also quite good.  Also watch the Aeronauts if you get a chance.

Note that none of us boys watched Barbie.... I guess it's hard-wired into us.

I haven't watched that one either... I've watched bits and pieces of other episodes when my son was watching them... Pretty cool flashbacks of Saturday morning cartoons as a little kid (now I'm a big kid :lol)

....Barbie came with G.I. Joe, didn't she?
