Star Warsh!

Disney Plus Debuts

So as of midnight – last night – coming into the first day of June, we now have Disney+ Hotstar running in this household. Although there is no sign of the Tartakovsky Clone Wars show, Droids toon and the Ewok movies, the sheer amount of content available for streaming here blows my mind. What a time to be alive!

Star Wars Rebels Experience

Mid Valley Megamall held a Star Wars Rebels Experience exhibition last Sunday, commemorating the debut of the series on local TV. I didn’t think I was going to make the exhibition because college assignments had to be submitted by midnight. I had one more to complete and submit. But when it was announced that the deadline was pushed back 2 […]

The Lawless

The Star Wars The Clone Wars episode “The Lawless”. Best Star Wars since The Empire Strikes Back? Hyperbole? No spoilers here. At about minute 9, I was stunned at how the story went. The entire series and the tone it started with in the beginning was a feint. Despite some pretty juvenile episodes, most of the series has been an […]

Space Ghost

I has some time to spare one morning and thought I’d draw one of the old classic Hanna-Barbera cartoons. I was then torn between two characters: Space Ghost or Tundro of the Herculoids. Ultimately I thought I’d give Space Ghost a try. Using brush and ink, I tried giving Space Ghost a dramatic central shadow. The illustration was scanned and […]

The Mysterious Mystery of Alcatraz

[[image:alcatraz-intro.jpg:Alcatraz:center:0]] J.J. Abrams’ new show Alcatraz is sort of interesting. The premise is that on the day Alcatraz was shut down in 1963, everyone on the island disappeared into thin air from inmates to guards. In the present day, one by one the people who vanished are reappearing in and around San Francisco. And the returnees haven’t aged since 1963. […]

Clark Flies

Smallville has ended its 10 year run making it the longest running series based on a comic book ever. I’d like to say it was a great run through and through, but it did lose my attention somewhere during the fourth season due to Clark’s teenaged lovey-dovey hijinks with Lana. I saw the odd episode here and there over the […]

The Zombie Apocalypse with Microlite20

After three episodes of The Walking Dead on AMC, I thought I’d try a zombie game scenario with Irfan. I was itching to try out the free Microlite20 system, so I adapted it the M20 Modern plug-in to come up with a simple zombie apocalypse scenario. Irfan wanted to play a sheriff, he rolled up his three characteristics, chose a […]

Phineas and Ferb

One of the cool things about having a kid is that you get to check out all the children’s TV shows that are out there. Well, you know. It’s got to be vetted before Allie is allowed to watch it. ūüėČ This is one of our new favorite shows: [[image:phineas_and_ferb_logo.png:Mom, Phineas and Ferb are making a title sequence!:center:0]]¬† It’s just […]

Riders of the Malevolence

Clone Wars Episode 4 The GM announced that this week was going to be a standard dungeon crawl, to which everyone shrugged and went, “Meh.” However, after recapping last week’s session, he started out with a bang by shifting the scene to two new PCs. Senator Padm√© Amidala of Naboo and her protocol droid See Threepio were both on their […]

Strikeforce: Shadow Squadron

Clone Wars Episode 3 After the last adventure, in which the party gathered intel on the Malevolence, the GM now changed the flavour of the campaign from a rescue to a starfighter combat scenario. It was a straightforward mission. A squadron of fighters will take off from the Resolute, take a short cut through a nebula, then attack the Malevolence […]

The Orbital Debris Field Manhunt

Clone Wars Episode 2 Obviously last week had merely been the gaming group’s test run using a stand alone scenario in a single session. This week, the GM brought out the big guns. Literally. The Republic fleet has been under attack by a colossal capital ship, known as the Malevolence. Which is why this scenario was titled “Rising Malevolence”. Incidentally […]

Battle At The Coral Moon

Clone Wars Episode 1 The scenario titled “Ambush” was designed so that the Player Characters (PCs), on the side of the Galactic Republic, set down on the moon known as Rugosa in a diplomatic mission. Rugosa’s terrain was a thick forest of a multitude of hard, gigantic coral structures. If there was a sea once, it probably had dried out […]

A Universe Ahead To Explore

Coming to television this fall is the third series to be set in a very well known, visual-media-based science fiction universe. This time instead of having a proper base of operations (in this galaxy or another), the characters are trapped on a automated ancient starship travelling out of and away from the Milky Way galaxy. That’s one way to put […]

There Is A Hole In The Bucket Dear Liza Dear Liza

First things first: SPOILER ALERT… This entry will be discussing the series finale of Battlestar Galactica, the double-length episode entitled “Daybreak, Part 2”. But before the day breaks, there is nothing but utter darkness and despair. Death and destruction. As ably illustrated by Tricia Helfer below: [[image:galactica-finale03.jpg:When things get bad, Head Six goes nuts:center:0]] DID I MENTION THE SPOILER ALERT? […]

The Lunatic Fringe

Both Sila’s and my household have been following J.J. Abram’s brand new TV series Fringe. As per Alias and Lost, I had a feeling it’s not what it advertised itself to be, which would have been about international spies and counterspies, and surviving a plane crash on a deserted island. Warning: SPOILERS, and I’m serious. SPOILERS! [[image:fringe01-feb2009.jpg:Is the tank an […]

The Corps is Mother, The Corps is Father

Roll call for the members of Green Lantern Corps that appeared in the pre-credits teaser of the Batman: The Brave and the Bold episode “Day of the Dark Knight!” I’ll bet Green Lanterns Bzzd (a tiny fly-like alien), Leezle Pon (a super-intelligent smallpox virus) and Dkrtzy RRR (a sapient abstract mathematical formula) are also present but invisible to the naked […]
