I'm back! And reading! And maybe even blogging! No promises!

Oh dear.

Okay, my nostalgia kick is totally warring with my "this is going to be horrible" instinct, at the thought of a new Thundercats cartoon.

I mean, intellectually, I know that even the original cartoon wasn't very good. In fact, I saw episodes recently and it was even worse than I remembered. I mean seriously, awful, in a gloriously wonderful way.

But a new series? Can't they think of new asskicking yet dumb animal themed cartoon shows instead of remaking the 80s? (Though, credit where it's due, I did think the 2000s version of He-Man was kind of awesome. I wanted to see them bring in She-Ra.)

At the same time, my inner nine year old's all "Hee! Thundercats Hoooo!!!!"

    ...Now, they're just playing with my heart. What do I listen to: my love for Thundercats or my mild indifference to this 80s revival thing? (I like the 80s and all, but lately this appears to be everybody's fallback idea: when in doubt, remember the 80s. Like it was a rallying cry or something.

    Remember the Maine!

    Remember the Alamo!

    Remember Dinosaucers!)

    Someone else remembers Dinosaucers? I was beginning to think I'd imagined that series.

    You definitely jumped the gun on this one kalinara, the remake was great. You panicked for nothing.

    Best moment was when Mon*Star (lead Silverhawks villain) and Mako (lead hero from Tiger Sharks) made cameo apperances in "Legacy". That was awesome and smart at the same time! Too bad the new Thundercats cartoon got screwed over by politics again...as usual.
