Fox Season Premiere Sunday

September 8th, 2006

This Sunday Sept. 10th 8/7c Fox is premiering a slew of shows. The Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad, and The War at Home. Three of them being animated.

The thing I noticed was that all the shows have to do with “Nuclear” family units. Do families still sit down on sunday night to watch the television together?, or is that a figment of the past?

CGi Overload– and some rambling

August 13th, 2006

I’ll admit it. I went to the theaters and saw “Monster House.” I feel like I will never get back that hour and a half I spent watching the motion- capture- mess of a film. This summer I have only seen 2 animated movies in the theater. How many Animated movies were out this summer? Like 8? Damn. To bad most of them sucked.

Whatever happened to good old fashion animation?
