Astro Boy Episode 21 - The Liar Robot

Hello Dwellers and Welcome To The Basement...

This week in the Basement I am still focused on the Astro Boy Greatest Astro Adventure DVD, and this week I'm going over 'The Liar Robot'... aka Astro Boy's take on The Boy Who Cried Wolf! 




WATCH THE EPISODE BELOW



ADDITIONAL NOTES Something I did not mention was that 'True' looks very much like Mega Man, who wouldn't come along for over 5 years'True's' helicopter blades being able to cut through trees and a mountain is impressive, how many of these robots are there?Seriously, Astro Boy's origins involve him dying in a car crash, and the reason for 'True' lying is because of a tragic automobile accident? Is there something about late 1970s traffic in Japan I don't know about?The scene where 'True' gets attacked by the towns folk is so unintentionally funny because of how unbelievably violent it is

Ever wondered how if the rapture happened how much life would suck? Well in this week's comic 'Katrina Hates The Dead' from Wannabe Press,  we get a very good idea of that concept and more!

Thanks to The Simpsons episode ‘Thank God, It’s Doomsday’, the Rapture kind of enter the pop culture main stream, (at least from my point of view), with the whole ‘Left Below’ bit, that the holy and most devout gets brought up to heaven, while the rest of humanity is left to deal with Apocalypse, as shown in the episode when God shows Homer what Marge, Lisa, Maggie and Bart are having to deal with…

Katina is one of the many humans left to deal with hell on earth, demons, zombies and other spawn that after years of tormenting humanity have settled into a bit of a mundane life in the suburbs…

Luke Cage: Lots of Strenghts, One Big Weakness

Hello Dwellers and Welcome To The Basement...
I watched four episodes of Luke Cage on Friday... and watched the remaining nine on Saturday, and here are my overall thoughts and opinions, regarding the show's various strengths and one major weakness the show has that could have ruined it... 



Additional Thoughts I love the use of live music, with the Harlem Paradise serving as a central location, it added some great sizzle to the steak of the show
Method Man's cameo was awesome, almost makes up for Richard Roundtree not being brought in
