Good Shows

I just want to note for the record that Cartoon Network has some awesome anime lately.

Ghost in the Shell is probably the most believable and thoughtful cyberpunk series I've seen. It has a great long term story-line, with philosophical overtones worthy of Phillip K. Dick.

Full Metal Alchemist, while it has campy moments, also has a really good, if disturbing, long term story-line. Today's episode was so totally engrossing that I just about wanted to throw things at the TV when it ended. Grrr. Gotta wait for the next episode next week.

Speaking of wanting to throw stuff at the TV, the Sci-Fi channel season finale for Battlestar Galactica was just plain evil. Grr. And I have to wait until July for the next episode there. Grrrr!

I guess I just go for shows with good long story arcs.

Save for me?
If it's not too late, can you guys sve the BSG Finale part #2 for me on the PVR? Family-visiting trumped SG night this past week. I'm glad it's a good one, though!

The show that's just plain wrong has got to be "Bobo bo Bobobobo," or however the hell it goes. Nosehair fighting? He must be Italian. =};-3

Just so you know, the entire 26 episodes of GitS 1 are available from laughing Man Fansubs... and the first 19 episodes of the 2nd Stand Alone complex are out there as well. All in all, there are also 51 Episodes of Full Metal Alchemist, also available for download that have been fansubbed.

If you're really attached to the characters in GitS, You better be ready for some incredibly harsh stuff coming up at the conclusion of this show. I'm just warning you, but I'm not telling you what is coming.

I was so much more impressed with Battlestar Galactica than I was expecting to be! It's a fantastic series. Earlier this year I, er, "borrowed" the complete series from Bittorrent (it had already aired in its entirety in Great Britain before starting here on Sci-Fi) and watched it all over the course of a few nights.

Fan-dang-tastic. I'm dying to see the second series.

I really like the new BSG, with one main exception. The Star Trek writers used to have [Insert Tech Here] in their scripts, and I swear that BSG has [Insert SEXX0RS Here] in theirs. That's my only real complaint.

I just finished watching all of Fullmetal Alchimest a few weeks ago, it was pretty good and definately didn't end in a way I'd expect.

I'd expect the armor-kid to sacrifice himself to resurrect Mom, while his brother never regenerates those lost limbs.

But I'm probably wrong.

Noooooooo spoilers! Or I'll have to peer at you disapprovingly.

I haven't watched enough of the series to give any real spoilers; but the whole premise is contained in the show's intro monologue. It's just a matter of finding out what they've given up that they'd like to have back, and then deciding who wins the MacGuffin.

Ouch, that was damn cynical of me. But I'm posting it anyway.

Two paws up to all your choices. What'd you think of Venture Brothers? Not anime, but I thought it was pretty nifty.

BTW, this is Rob, from Blue Crash Kit. I added you--Izzat cool?

I love Venture Brothers! It does a great job poking fun at Johnny Quest and the ilk.

I've no problems with being added to friends lists, etc.
