Not the Pizza Cats! Oh, BTW, Hello. :)

When you mentioned Mystic Knights, my first impulse was to type “fuck” thirty-seven times and then break a glass on my forehead. Fortunately, I remembered that both glasses cost money and years soda consumption have left me with the forehead of a newborn.

Jesus, that was an awful show, wasn’t it? It took a bunch of potentially interesting concepts from old fairy tales and then held a gun to their kids’ heads until they put on the monkey costumes and danced. Ironically, it probably would’ve been better if they just cut down the CGI effects and when for more low-budget Sinbad-esque action scenes, both with and without the foam costumes. Maybe replace “dragon” with “giant” and had some hobos in paper-mache suits duke it out on top of a 40K field. Would that have helped? Less throwing cheesy special effects at our heads and more characters doing stuff?

At Saban eventually gave us an American release of Sherlock Holmes In The 22nd Century. That soothed the burn.

Mmm, Sherlock was good.

Good post, Karen. Trust the subconscious. And though I can’t speak for the rest of my gender, vagina references are fine by me. My DC knowledge is also limited. Is there a way to do a quiz show to find who knows less? I probably absorb more than I realize from the three Morrison books.

I have no problems with references to genitilia and the freedom to express ones personality through Ikea. Just don’t fall to the darkside and embrace your inner collon, that’s my job.

I have a feeling there’s a sinister, dark side to vaginas we’d rather not hear the lurid details of.

I’m also ashamed to know the show being talked about. Why couldn’t you have talked about Roar instead? It would leave us all with slightly more dignity.

OMG, Mystic Knights of Tir na nÓg! Wow, what a trainwreck that show was. I remember catching about two minutes of it while idly channel-surfing, and asking myself, “What the hell? Isn’t that distinguished Irish stage actor Stephen Brennan, whom I last saw playing the role of Lucky in Waiting for Godot? What is he doing in this pile of garbage?”

Truly, the representation of my country in international television is dire indeed.

Not a whole hell of a lot, though.

First, I’d like to confess that the idea of writing for a predominantly male readership freaks me out because I often talk about things like home decor, vaginas, and cute male celebrities and when posting on my own turf. Maybe we could come to an understanding: I will keep the vagina references to a minimum if you don’t insult my limited knowledge of the DC Universe. Deal?

Tits or GTFO!

And that, boys and girls (Hi Wendy), is how the man behind the Power Rangers and Samurai Pizza Cats became the 102nd richest person in America.

If this didn’t end amid a backdrop of FOX obnoxiousness, I’d say it was an awesome “Happily Ever After” story. Ah well…

You could compromise and talk about superpowered vaginas.

OMG. I had suppressed the memory of that show. I remember getting excited about the concept. And then watching in horror.

But this thread reminded me of “Covington Cross” which was on American TV in the early 1990’s with Nigel Terry. That one was good, but I guess too many people were not ready for a medieval family drama.

What was the name of the one where there were 4 high school kids that mystically transformed into one giant knight. No zords, or borgs or voltron force… they just merged into one giant knight.

Hello Karen!

I wonder if the internets could handle us co-writing an article? What, I have no idea, but hey, we can always fall back to vaginas if nothing else works.

Indeed, but I’d take the sliver gladly.

I’m now having flashbacks to my old roommate with the complete run of Penthouse Comix and Men’s Adventure Comix

I remember a toy for that show featuring “Frozen Lava fireballs”. Which I promptly replied “Wouldn’t that be a rock?”

My feeling is that you can never write too much about vaginas, whether they be normal, superpowered, or dark-sided.

(I do hope that doesn’t read as too pervy.)

Feel free to write about vaginas, home decor and cute male models. I for one wouldn’t mind. And yeah, that show was terrible. The black guy was so awkwardly slotted in as to be hilarious.

I’ve loathed Saban ever since I read that he had it in for (and ultimately brought about the cancellation of) the original Tick animated show because he had some stupid grudge against kid’s shows that adults could enjoy as well.
