Liberty’s Kids

History can be fun to learn about. Most of history is filled with carnage, murder, sacrifice, and other cool things. Put this into cartoon form and you can get away with being even more violent than ever before. The Revolutionary War itself was a pretty violent war. I guess all wars are violent. Would it […]

As Told by Ginger

I feel like this show never got as much street cred as it deserved. As Told By Ginger had well developed characters, good back stories, and realistic relationships. It was slightly odd, but all good shows have to be kind of weird otherwise they won’t be memorable. Much like Doug, Ginger speaks to the audience […]

A Poem for Alexa Vega

Dear Alexa Vega, Those breasts, wow did they become mega. It’s pretty clear they’re not real so why pretend, I’ve got no problem with them so to me you don’t have to defend. Your choices are yours and I’ll accept you for you, Alexa Vega accept my invitation of love and find out what we’ll […]

Malcolm in the Middle

I knew immediately from the first episode Malcolm in the Middle would be a show I could relate to. The house was dirty, the family got along but always insulted each other, and it was about being an outsider. I hate being compared to Frankie Muniz in any way possible because he’s not even 30 […]

In The Zone

At the conclusion of Field of Dreams, James Earl Jones gives a big speech on how baseball is the purest thing in America and other nonsense. As I heard actor Robert Wuhl point out, it’s ironic that a black man would say baseball was pure considering it took until 1947 before a black man ever […]

My Brother and Me

My Brother and Me was my first introduction to “black shows”. And just so you know, I’m not trying to be racist when I use that term. When I’m trying to be racist, you’ll know. In a world of kid’s shows with all white cast members, My Brother and Me enlightened me (or endarkened me) […]

iCarly

Some people say Internet shows are the future of broadcast media. Then a show about an Internet show came out called iCarly. Those people who claimed that Internet shows are the future immediately hung themselves. If the Internet show portrayed on iCarly is like other Internet shows then there is no hope for the future […]

Schoolhouse Rock!

Schoolhouse Rock! was an ingenious idea made by creative people that connected learning with music. It makes sense—it’s easier for people to memorize words and phrases if they’re put to a catchy tune. Simple as that. My mom was a fan of the programming when she was little and she introduced it to me because […]

Life With Derek

Disney Channel in the mid-2000s launched into a new era. They managed to find a new audience, 13-16 year olds. Disney had always been known for Mickey Mouse, their classic animated films, and hating Jews. Since the Jews run the media they had to do something different. And that’s my reasoning behind how Life with […]
