In every generation there is a Chosen One. I alone will stand against the vampires, the demons, and the forces of Netflix. I am the slayer! And these are my chronicles while watching Buffy The Vampire Slayer for the first time…. as a 35 year old woman. That’s right – I am a Buffy virgin.
Today we will be talking about Season 3, Episode 7. If you’re (re)watching with me, or even if you’re not, tell me what you thought about this episode in the comments!
If you’re like me and I know I am, meaning you liked cartoons and had Nickelodeon playing in your house between the years 1982 and 1992, then you probably saw Danger Mouse.
Of course, if you were a fan, you might have liked to have been told that Netflix is reviving it as well on this side of the Atlantic with British comedian curmudgeon Stephen Fry as Colonel K. But, apparently, I’m the only regular writing for this blog that saw fit to say anything since other folks liked to pretend Inspector Gadget and Duck Tales are the only cartoons returning these days. But I’m not bitter or anything…
Inspector Gadget is go go going to Netflix in a brand new series! That brings to two the total of beloved old cartoons coming back to TV today alone! The series already aired in Europe, who has a much more refined sense of humor for stumbling cyborg private detectives with super intelligent nieces and their dogs. Netflix acquired the US rights and adds it to their already impressive (and highly distracting) body of work to occupy children’s attention for hours at a time. Did I mention I love you, Netflix? Except for Veggie Tales. I prefer my talking vegetables to be less Jesusy.
Quick quiz, geeks! Who is the all-time box office champ when adding up the total grosses from all of his or her films? Harrison Ford? Tom Hanks? Morgan Freeman? Surely it’s Samuel L Jackson? He’s in every movie made!
