Hang in there, Gatchaman…

February 4, 2010

Damn you Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, damn you to hell.  Playing it made me remember just how much I loved G-Force as a kid.  In the U.S., Gatchaman was called Battle of the Planets and later in the mid eighties (when I watched it), it was called G-Force.  I went Gatchaman crazy and bought the first few collections of this anime series on DVD. Luckily I found a place that sells them on the cheap, even though they are out of print.

Come to find out, the US versions of these were modified significantly with scripts changing, violent bits getting cut, and a talking robot added to be more like Star Wars. Luckily, the collections I’m getting were re-dubbed and uncut I guess you don’t notice those kind of things when you young. tongue

For some reason, Collection 6 and 7 of these boxed sets are incredibly hard to find for some reason.  They do have them on the Amazon Marketplace, but they are $100.  If anyone knows where I could find these sets PLEASE let me know, I’d appreciate it!

Anyway, now I’m watching the series with my 7 year old son and he loves it so far! It holds up very well, especially considering that this show is from the early 70’s.  Can’t wait to watch more!


Watch Spectacular Spider-Man

June 29, 2009

Season 1 was fantastic and season 2 has started strong.  Spectacular Spider-man is on Mondays at 7:30pm on Disney XD.  If you are a Spider-Man fan, you won’t be disappointed.  My son and I watch this show together and we both enjoy it.  The show also does a great job of brining you up to speed so don’t be too worried about not knowing what’s going on.

Lost is back!

January 21, 2009

Season five of Lost starts tonight!!!!  I can’t wait for it.  I never got a chance to rewatch season 4 so I will definitely be taking advantage of the recap show they usually show before every season premiere of the show.  The fun starts at 8 o’clock.  I’ll be giving my thoughts on the episode once I watch it.  Stay tuned!
