Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Stars (Episodes #199-200- THE LAST REVIEW!)

“Nothing excites me more than watching fellow Guardians, sworn to protect their planet, kill each other. Countless planets have succumbed to my power, and each time, their Guardians have brought about their own doom by betraying one another. Friendship is but an illusion.” Well hell. Here we are- several years ago, on another website, I started posting these (most of which I’d done beforehand), but … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Stars (Episodes #199-200- THE LAST REVIEW!)

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Star (Episodes #197-198)

It’s time for my second-last recap of Sailor Moon! Last episode was a big one: EVERYONE DIED! Well okay, the entire Inner Senshi- Sailor Mars, Sailor Mercury, Sailor Jupiter & Sailor Venus- all perished saving the Sailor Starlights from Galaxia’s destructive attack- their Star Seeds were taken out (fatal to any Sailor), and they faded away, Mars doing so in a crying Usagi’s arms, teasing … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Star (Episodes #197-198)

Welcome back to more Sailor Stars reviews!

Guardians Of The Galaxy Holiday Special Review

NOTE: This article contains spoilers! Well, there is absolutely no way I could have seen this as my finish line 11 months ago. If you have been following my 2022 Month-By-Month Movie Log at all, you likely know my New Year’s Resolution was to watch 300 films by year’s end. I’ve been cataloging my journey there, and I have to admit, I was long curious … Continue reading Guardians Of The Galaxy Holiday Special Review

The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime, #20-16

And we are back! Let’s read some allegedly great comics! #20. Planetary #13 I’ve read Planetary but one time, a few years ago, and all at once beginning to end. It works better that way, I think. As I made my way back through issue 13 here, I found myself wanting to revisit the story the series told in its completion. That said, Warren Ellis … Continue reading The Top 100 Comics Of A Lifetime, #20-16

Jab’s Reviews: TMNT (Hothead, King Lionheart, Tokka & Rahzar)

While battlin’ a blaze, a fireman in Old Town broke an enchanted dragon-shaped flask. Suddenly, a mystical cloud covered the sky and the fireman disappeared. Out of the scorchin’ heat arose the super-Samurai spirit of a dragon-genie. Known as Hothead to his Turtle friends because of his blazin’ breath and quick temper, this scaly-skinned Samurai serpent can put out any fire, except his own. His … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: TMNT (Hothead, King Lionheart, Tokka & Rahzar)

Jab’s Reviews: TMNT (Panda Khan, Sgt. Bananas & Walkabout)

Descended from giant mutant Earth pandas, a thousand years in the future, Panda Khan is the Samurai ruler of a genetically improved tribe of battlin’ bears. Leaving his alien world in search of great adventure, Khan boarded a Tong pirate ship and using the ancient art of Ting Zing Pao, time-traveled to Earth, 1990. Landing in the sewers, Panda Khan linked up with the Turtles … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: TMNT (Panda Khan, Sgt. Bananas & Walkabout)

Jab’s Reviews: TMNT (Scratch & Hot Spot- The Overpriced Duo)

Welcome back to more TMNT commentary! This time I tackle the two most ludicrously overpriced toys in the entire line, infamous because not only are they hideous figures, but they’re worth an absolute FORTUNE! It’s a very funny situation that pops up due to the quirks of the toy collector industry: Great toys from forgotten lines are worth only a pittance, while lame toys from … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: TMNT (Scratch & Hot Spot- The Overpriced Duo)

Jab’s Reviews: TMNT (Halfcourt, Doctor El, Monty Moose & Sandstorm- The “Late In the Line” Guys)

Time for more TMNT commentary! With some of the goofiest, most forgotten characters in the line! The home team advantage goes to Halfcourt, the jumpshot jammin’ giraffe. With his beehive basketball pumped and primed, Halfcourt’s ready for some rough one-on-one action with any Foot fool who dares to come out ‘n play. Halfcourt’ll pump ’em up with his tire pump pistol and dribble ’em straight … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: TMNT (Halfcourt, Doctor El, Monty Moose & Sandstorm- The “Late In the Line” Guys)

Jab’s Reviews: TMNT (The Shredder!)

THE SHREDDER:-Hilariously, the character so integral to the origin of the TMNT was a guy they killed off in the first issue- they had him show up, challenge the boys, who got revenge for their master by killing him. Shredder had a backstory involving Hamato Yoshi- a kindly martial artist. Splinter, Yoshi’s pet rat, watched his master die at Oroku Saki’s hands, and when he … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: TMNT (The Shredder!)

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Stars (Episodes #180-182)

Welcome back to more Sailor Stars reviews! This time we FINALLY see Sailor Uranus & Neptune show up again! Then we see the final episode for Sailor Iron Mouse… and the much-dreaded debut of CHIBI-CHIBI, who was one of the least-liked Sailor Moon characters to the ’90s fandom (who of course had mostly only heard ABOUT her, not actually seen her). EPISODE #180: And finally… … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Stars (Episodes #180-182)

Jab’s Reviews: TMNT (The Channel 6 Crew & The Neutrinos)

Hey all! Welcome back to more TMNT commentary! This week, I have a theme going of “1980s Cartoon Recurring Supporting Characters”, as we get the Channel 6 crew (part of April O’Neil’s coworkers), plus the uber, UBER 1980s Neutrinos. Channel 6 is on the air – and Irma’s on the hunt for news. She may be April’s best friend, but she’s out to scoop her … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: TMNT (The Channel 6 Crew & The Neutrinos)

Sticky post

Follow The SWO Productions!

No new “article” today, as it were! Just a reminder that SWO Productions continues to grow and grow, and I’m not the most marketing-savvy person in the world, so it’s entirely possible you my not even know everything we have gotten ourselves up to these days! With that in mind, I’ve decided to create a little one-stop shop with direct connections to some of our … Continue reading Follow The SWO Productions!

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Stars (Episodes #176-179)

More Sailor Stars! This time the other two Sailor Starlights get some focus. EPISODE #176:  School test shenanigans are afoof, as Usagi, Minako AND Seiya fail their tests and need to do make-ups, but Seiya’s ALSO struggling with a stage director, who criticizes his entire performance. Meanwhile, Rei continues her “teleports straight to Juuban High” gimmick, while now copying the “Noblewoman Laugh” anime cliché as … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Stars (Episodes #176-179)

Sailor Moon: Sailor Stars (Episodes #173-175)

Like these douches? You better- the creators fall in love with them and they run away with the spotlight for weeks at a time. Hey, we’re back! And now I finally reach the final, FINAL arc of the 200-episode series, as we hit the “Sailor Starlights/Galaxia” arc! The entire nature of the show shifts from this point out- this ends up being one of the … Continue reading Sailor Moon: Sailor Stars (Episodes #173-175)
