I was always angered by Find Waldo Now!. I'll find Waldo when I feel like it! Waldo will be fine. He can wait it out while I look for the version of him without the shoe.

Gah. I honestly don't think such a thing as a "Virus Buster Serge" fan exists currently.

Maybe not but you can vote for your favorite "Virus Buster Serge" episode at SciFi.com viewers' choice poll.
In fact you can vote for any combination of four episodes of any series or movie that SciFi has (or soon will) broadcast.

What do you mean? If you meant the title, they didn't change it.

And speaking of Black Lagoon, for some reason, they aired Episode 16 again. Presumably, this is a mistake, so it should be Episode 17 that should be airing next week on G4TechTV Canada.

Gee, what happens when you encounter stop signs? You must not like the hokey-pokey either, or, in this case, the pokey-pokey:

"Put your katana in, take your katana out, put your katana in and you shake it all about. You do the pokey-pokey and the chiropteran gives a shout--that's what it's all about!"

Now, Hagi! Join in with your giant, coffin-shaped cello case! Anime smile

We celebrate our new Click Pick with a retrospective (10/7 and 7/15 are my favorites for the irony):

What kind of confirmation are you looking for, other than Canadian viewers like me who have discussed the matter on this very site?

Yes, it's on.

(And yes, they screwed up on Friday with a repeat.)

That is so very odd to see all those things I wrote about the same damn thing all compiled together.

I think when I am old and possibly dead I will have written more about Kai Doh Maru than Pauline Kael on the entire history of cinema. Everybody's gotta have a niche, I guess.

This episode of Blood+ contained the second thing in Blood+ history that made me go "HUH?"

The first one was in an earlier episode, the number of which I can't remember. spoiler[Jams was about to kill Saya, but Nathan stopped him. Jams says, 'Damn you, Nathan!" What did Nathan do this for? "It isn't dramatic enough." If it were Solomon stopping him, I'd be all like "Ah! I see!" As it was, it felt like the writers had trapped themselves and resorted to something cheap to break out.]

Now, we have episode 45, where spoiler[Moses walks to his death for no apparent reason. The "thorn" wasn't eating him up yet, he still had friends to live for, and he would have made a valuable ally against Diva and her Chevaliers. Now Moses wants to die simply because he realizes that Karman doesn't want him to kill Kai, and because he now knows that Kai will remember him? The only thing I can think of is that he loved Karman so much that he couldn't live without him. Insert shrug.]

I like Blood+, but those two episodes just stumped me.

Oh, and I've been imagining various ways the series can end, mostly predicting who will die (few action/sci-fi anime don't have deaths before the end, yeah?). I've predicted (probably with thousands of others) that spoiler[Solomon is as good as dead. He'll probably die protecting Saya from some mortal blow, or something. I hate to think the show would be this predictable, but some things you can just see coming. Also, I've felt that all of the Schiff would die for a while now, and now there's only one of them left. Bonus points for the series if Lulu manages to pull a minor miracle and survive; maybe I'll consider an "excellent" (though that would depend on the overall ending quality, too). If Lulu AND Solomon both somehow survive, however, I'm NOT going Masterpiece. Just saying...]

I typed the above block so that I can look back after the show is over and read over what I wrote. It'll be fun.

Also, Lulu has a unique face. I like it. Just saying...

Death Note NOT on adult swim!!!

DVR says it's on, it records, but is replaced by something else....didn't bother to catch what it was....

Perhaps a different time?

Nah, that was only the results from the first two of (at least) 19 pages. I wanted to include at least one good review, and just like parents who insist on having one of each, it took awhile.

Nope, it's off the schedule for the moment.

I find some perverse joy in watching networks sift through the dregs of Manga's catalog. Virus Buster Serge isn't even the worst of it; I'm hoping they end up airing Armageddon or Vampire Wars.

Oh god! Armageddon! Will I ever get those two hours of my life back?!?!?

VBS was bad, but I'm not sure if it was that bad. I simply watched it as a comedy, and not an action sci-fi thriller. Then, it actually turns out pretty good. You can laugh at all the nonsense and crazy character designs! It's great!
