Cartoons: Inspector Gadget- Thank goodness I'm not alone! I'm sorry, but it's really hard to root for a character who just comes off as being the bottom rung each and every time. Just give the show to Penny and the dog for goodness sake!!! Rebecca Cunningham: ??? I'm on the fence. I mean, I do like ...

My Only Love is one of the best stand alone songs to me from the dub. it's just a really pretty song and I like hearing the melody. There's no real reason why I like it. To be honest, I like a lot of the dub songs. Many of them are very good on their own. As part of a scene, not so much. But on thei...

Sounds about right to me, Tiff. They probably also feel it's easier at times to shorten or change things slightly. Like with the Thanks thing. This also doesn't surprise me much. Pioneer had issues keeping with the correct facts for the story in the subs for Supers and the manga had all kinds of mes...

This is really hard for me. i love them all so much! First choice would be Usagi. Mainly because she and I both love spending time reading manga or goofing around. She's someone I could talk to and have a ton of fun with without feeling self conscious. Second choice---Mako-chan. She seems like a big...

More things I believed from watching the dub.... -Rei had an even bigger ego and was more than willing to bump off Usagi to become leader. -Mamoru was the worst man ever (I only saw dubs of the first two seasons) -That Chibiusa was a brat sent from the Negaverse to torment and bring Usagi's doom. -A...

That sounds like a really eye opening experiment. I'm not sure how i'd fair without being able to walk. It's frustrating enough when it's just temporary.

I don't watch a lot of dubbed anime do to the fact that it can be very painful to listen to. So much of it seemed forced or made to fit in that i can't really enjoy it much. And then there are those times when you just have bad casting. It just takes away from the moment. but I do have to say that I...

That's very kind of you to say, michikodesu. That worry has been my mom's number one concern for years. At first they weren't even going to suggest me because they wanted me not to have to worry about my sister. But after being ripped off by two respite workers, I got mad and started taking a more s...

Doesn't surprise me in the least. It's only been the last 30 years that we've really seriously studied mental disablities and been making break throughs in understanding them. So mistakes being common place shouldn't be too surprising. That is changing over time.

Actually, about half way through my first viewing, I started to wonder if Lars might somehow turn out to be Fry. But I couldn't prove it, so I just sat back and waited for the surprise. I loved the Fox bashing. That just made my day. It's always fun to see how a show really feels about being jerked ...

I saw it first on dvd then decided to see the episodes of it. Nothing really all that different to me. I did like Brannigan being thrown in. Not sure why...maybe I just enjoy seeing him not taken seriously. That and it's funny the humilating things he forces on poor Kif. Yeah, I agree about the Fry ...

Okay, I confess. I tried Bloody Mary when I was in middle school. And I got majorly freaked out before I could complete the chant. Not because of any evil spirits, but because I was afraid of the dark and the bathroom was always creepy in the dark. But still, I didn't try it again. I'm not big on th...

Yeah, I read that same article a while back and I still disagree with it. I still seriously believe that hiding veggies is not the smartest way to reach out to your children about nutrition. Just the term 'hiding' itself implies that it's not something we're opening willing to introduce to our kids....

A Snow Fairy Named Sugar. I tried enjoying it, but after 2 discs, I just can't do it. maybe i'm just not getting the point. Whatever it is, i just can't recommend it to anyone.
