Playmobil’s own show, Super 4, now on Netflix

super4

Playmobil has always prided itself on never producing toys of licensed entertainment properties. The Brandstätter family always wanted to capture children’s imaginations with a “blank slate” – no embedded characters or storylines. While LEGO and others are making sets of Star Wars, Harry Potter, and The Avengers; Playmobil was doing knights, samurai, and ancient Romans. However, kids these days and more importantly, the parents buying the toys, do want something familiar, and Playmobil needed to respond.

Essential Seven Reasons I Hate Kevin Arnold

I recently began re-watching episodes of The Wonder Years on Netflix. (Note: The music changes are hard to accept) I haven’t watched the show since it first aired, so I was surprised by my reaction after a few episodes. Kevin Arnold is a manipulative, dishonest, and evil douchebag that I despise.

Yes, I realize that Kevin is just a teenager, and all teenagers are dicks. Everybody grows up, matures, and regrets things they did growing up, and I should just accept that fact that he is learning from his mistakes.  Kevin as an adult is the narrator to the show. He has the greatest memory of anybody that I ever met. While he reminisces about his childhood, I really see the narrator as a way to explain and provide valid reasons as to why he was such a terrible person. Just like the older wiser Kevin Arnold reflects back on his life, I reflect on the Essential Seven Reasons I Hate Kevin Arnold.

Essential Seven Greatest Cosby Show Episodes

Recently the entire series of The Cosby Story debuted on Netflix, and I have been reliving all of my favorite episodes. Ask anybody what their favorite episode was, and you will probably get multiple answers. Some enjoyed when the episodes where Bill Cosby would interact with Rudy and her friends. Others enjoyed the episodes that featured Dr. Huxtable and Theo discussing life. I always loved the food episodes. Dr. Huxtable’s love of hoagies (with apple juice!) is something that I can easily relate too. No matter what you loved about the show, there will always be a debate of what were the best episodes. If your scratching your brain on what episodes were the best here are the Essential Seven Greatest Cosby Show Episodes:

Essential Seven Disturbing Neighborhood of Make Believe Characters

MrRogers

Watching Mr. Rogers as an adult is a different experience than watching the show as a child. You begin to notice weird and strange things from the show. For instance, why do the human characters pretend to ride in Trolley, when they just walk beside it? How many rooms does the museum-go-round actually have? Why do I find the puppet of Queen Sarah kinda hot?

The characters created by Fred Rogers are the most interesting aspect of the show. Most of the characters are normal. Henrietta Pussycat was the jealous character. Daniel Stripèd Tiger was shy. However, some of the characters were just disturbing. Their behavior on the show was abnormal, and I’m not really sure what they brought to the show. That is why this week we have identified the Essential Seven Disturbing Neighborhood of Make Believe Characters.

Dollhouse Might Be Cancelled UPDATED!!!!

dollhouse-cast-photo-whedon

Felicia Day, who had a guest starring role in Dollhouse,  Twittered that her episode will not be airing on Fox.  Fox has yet to make the official announcement, but it looks like another great Joss Whedon show has bit the dust.

UPDATE!!!

“Dollhouse” writer-producer Tim Minear clarified Felicia Day’s comments on Whedonesque.com:

Okay. So maybe I can help clarify this somewhat. Because we scrapped the original pilot — and in fact cannibalized some of its parts for other eps — we really ended up with 12 episodes. But the studio makes DVD and other deals based on the original 13 number. So we created a standalone kind of coda episode. Which is the mythical new episode 13. The network had already paid for 13 episodes, and this included the one they agreed to let us scrap for parts. It does not include the one we made to bring the number back up to 13 for the studio side and its obligations. We always knew it would be for the DVD for sure, but we also think Fox should air it because it’s awesome.

Hopefully Fox will do the right thing and keep the show on the air.
