Series: Titan Maximum

There are very few advantages to having pretty much sucked at everything I’ve tried to do in my life, but at least I’ve avoided ever having to face that most daunting of things: The follow up [whatever]. Lets face it, when you’re a nobody no body expects the next thing you do to be brilliant. […]

Series: Moral Orel

When it comes to delicate subjects, religion is probably at the top of the list. So, when treading ground which may be seen as possibly offensive to someone else’s belief system you’ll usually find that the matter is handled with kid gloves. The game Assassins Creed opens with a disclaimer, noting that the game was […]

DVD: Follow ups, Sequels and Series No.1

I don’t really like going back and reviewing sequels, or continuations of titles that I’ve already visited. Too often it feels like you’re just saying the same thing about the same things. But there are titles that I feel deserve a mention, so from time to time I’m going to be doing this kind of […]

Series: The Venture Brothers

One of the reasons I love trawling the Madman catalogue is that it’s full of undiscovered gems. Undiscovered by me that is. But from time to time there’s a movie or a show that I am well aware of and, for whatever reason, have either actively avoided (usually because of some preconceived idea about the […]

Series: Sealab 2021 Season 4

If there’s one kind of review that I really try to avoid doing here on elroyonline, it’s reviewing a season (or volume) of a show and then double dipping with another review of another season. Most of the time I feel like I’m just repeating what I’ve already said, however there are a few occasions […]

Series: Frisky Dingo Season 2

At the final episode of season 1 things seem to have been pretty much wrapped up for the series FRISKY DINGO. Well, as wrapped up as something with an absurd plot and bizarre characters — like a guy who mutates into a giant crab — could get! Actually, no! That’s not quite true! I think […]

Series: Aqua Teen Hunger Force v5

Every show on television faces the dilemma of how to keep the people watching. There’s only so much of the same thing that audiences will watch before they tune out. So, even the best shows must evolve to keep audiences interested and entertained. Some shows do this by building their own mythology, they introduce peripheral […]

DVD: Robot Chicken Season 03

Like just about everything that falls under the Adult Swim banner, I wouldn’t suggest that you introduce yourself to ROBOT CHICKEN by slapping down your hard earned cash and buying this (or any other) DVD. Instead, my suggestion would be to check out a few episodes first. However, if you’re a fan, and even if […]

DVD: Sealab 2021 season 3

Through no fault of this release, I’ve had a really hard time getting into SEALAB 2021. Various real world (and online) distractions have kept me from really taking a chunk of time out and dedicating it to examining these DVDs from top to bottom… which is how I like to roll. Of course there’d be […]

DVD: Aqua Teen Hunger Force V3

This is probably one of the hardest reviews I’ve ever had to write. Not because I can’t find anything good to say about the AQUA TEEN HUNGER FORCE Volume 3 DVD, but because beyond “Aqua Teen Hunger Force is the most awesome show ever, watch it now!” I’m not entirely sure that I’ve got any […]
