I'll probably resist the urge, however, and be content just to watch a really cool show. I can still remember the first time I watched it, and how cool I thought it all was- this was back in 2001, I was at my grandparents' house watching some TV because my cousins hadn't gotten here to hang out yet and so it was pretty much just me. I think my brother was still sleeping.
I never watch TV unless I'm really bored- it just doesn't jive with the way I work. I'm too twitchy, you know? Moving too constantly around for that sort of thing. Staring at a box for half an hour plus and letting videos and explosions and dialogue seep into my brain passively just isn't something I'm good at. I'd much rather read or write or doodle or play video games or plot or something. Anything, almost, rather than watch TV. The only way I can watch movies is if it's either really, really good or if the person I'm with lets me talk through the entire thing.
Anyways, it's a great TV show. You can watch it online, for free, through animefreak.tv, if you're so inclined, or you could always go out and buy a boxed set or something. I dunno. If you've never watched it, you should give it a shot. You just might like it.

Possibly my favorite animated series of all time. The tribute to Frank Miller's 300 in Ep 25 is a gem, love it.ReplyDelete
Yeah, it's not only a great show, but a proper work of art. It's still astonishing to see the kind of visual and narrative tricks they used, stuff you just wouldn't expect to see in a kids' TV show. They treated the medium with respect, and the show will always be remembered for it.ReplyDelete
Genndy Tartakovsky is a freaking planetary treasure.ReplyDelete
