Our full review of Gentefied season one!
From IMDb: “Three young alien beings with the ability to form a giant robotic warrior attempt to blend into suburbia, all while battling the tyrannical forces that ravaged their home world.” What I liked: A forgotten gem from master animator Genndy Tartakovsky, who I’ve mentioned before when reviewing his latest show, Primal. Paul Rudish andContinue reading “Sym-Bionic Titan (2010) (TV)”
From IMDb: “John Mulaney and his kid pals tackle existential topics for all ages with catchy songs, comedy sketches and special guests in a nostalgic variety special.” What I liked: When I was a kid, “children’s shows” didn’t talk down to their audience.

From IMDb: “Primal features a caveman at the dawn of evolution. A dinosaur on the brink of extinction. Bonded by tragedy, this unlikely friendship becomes the only hope of survival in a violent, primordial world.” What I liked: Since it takes place in primordial times, the show has zero dialog. Only yells and roars andContinue reading “Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal (2019) (TV – Season 1)”
Editor’s note: HOLY MOLY I’m tired of writing about this show. From IMDB: “The Mandalorian helps a rookie bounty hunter who is in over his head” What I liked: Hey, speeder bikes. What I didn’t like: My least favorite episode of the series so far. It’s a “safe” show that buys in to simple tropes.Continue reading “The Mandalorian (2019) – Episode 5”
