Having both recorded and written this prior to the Mayan Apocalypse, here’s hoping you and your loved ones are still alive and crouched in a ramshackle bunker somewhere. This week we journey back to the 80s, a time when children’s cartoons were far more plentiful, had actual stories,and every one of them, no matter how inappropriate they were for it, had to have their own Christmas special. Two children from Earth get abducted by Orko and brought to Eternia where they quickly teach all the heathen locals the meaning of Christmas – not peace or charity, but PRESENTS. A fuck ton of them. Not that they have time to open any of them, because these kids get abducted at least FOUR different times, which they seem to be fine with as long as they get their Christmas skrilla. Oh, and all this “Christmas spirit” the kids bring is supposedly more dangerous to Skeletor and Hordak than the He-Twins and Grayskull.
Next week, assuming we survive we’ll be checking out an episode of the best season of TV ever: Baywatch Nights Season 2. Rather than the usual Netflix deal, this one’s available for free on Youtube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRJqWAHxP3A In this mind-blowing season, we follow lifeguard Mitch Buchannon as he takes on all the supernatural cases that were too corny for The X-Files (or even PSI Factor) in his off hours. Seriously. A lifeguard is investigating the paranormal. In this episode, he and his detective team (I know, right?) are called on to stop the carnage being spread by a band of ancient, unfrozen Viking warriors. Somehow this takes an entire hour. We highly recommend this series, as it could easily fit in on Adult Swim without any real changes. Oh, Hoff.
Remember almost every movie we watch is available for streaming on Netflix or YouTube!
