Voltron Season 8 Trailer

Aside

In 2016 an animated series came out on Netflix that was a reboot of a beloved animated classic from the 1980s.  However, as audiences watched the episodes it became clear very quickly that this series was more than just a reboot.  And the fact that the producers had worked on “Avatar: The Last Airbender” as well as “Legend of Korra” only meant that the storytelling was going to be high-quality.  Plus putting the series on Netflix only makes it more accessible given the nature of binge-watching these days.

And now as we reach the end of the year the trailer for the eighth and final season has arrived. While Seasons 6 and 7 were very emotional, I have a feeling we haven’t seen anything yet!

 

Stan Lee Tribute

Aside

To say that Stanley Martin Lieber – a.k.a. Stan “The Man” Lee was a legend would be an understatement.  The man’s impact on the world of not just comic books, or pop culture, but the world itself is not something one can begin to measure.  And the impact the man’s work had on my own life – namely his co-creation Spider-Man – there’s just no words.


And of course, my personal favorite scene from my top favorite animated series.

RIP Stan Lee, and thank you for not just allowing us to escape, but for reinventing what a superhero is and should be, and for teaching us all real life lessons through your co-creations, from responsibility to self-acceptance and self-forgiveness and never give up on doing the right thing.

EXCELSIOR!

Happy Power Rangers Day!

Aside

So it is finally official.  Today is now Power Rangers Day!
