august 8, 2014

you're too young to remember this, but there was a time when mad about you was one of the biggest hits on tv. it shared must see tv thursday night on nbc with the likes of friends and seinfeld. and now that you've heard about it for the first time, you owe it to yourself to scope it out on this re-release of the first two seasons (of seven). the show is about a newlywed couple living in new york. they are played by paul reiser and helen hunt. and you're too young to remember this, but they were big stars.

you know robert kirkman as the creator of the walking dead. but this is his other comic book, which is about a young dude who is a superhero. the world kirkman has built in the invincible universe is just as staggering as his walking dead universe, if not more so. it is a neverending sci-fi & superhero epic. and these big ultimate collection volumes are gorgeous, but if you've never read it, definitely don't start with volume 9. you're gonna wanna start with volume 1, then 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8-- in that order. only then will you be ready for 9.

you don't even realize that although there is a popular tv show and a comic book and many toys of the teenage mutant ninja turtles right now, it all happened before. in the 80s and 90s, teenage mutant ninja turtles was the most important thing in the world. i know this because i was there. i breathed pizza and bled ooze. and one of the happiest times in my life was when a movie came out called teenage mutant ninja turtles, and it was promoted by my favorite pizza place, pizza hut. now, that exact thing is happening again. your safest bet is to give yourself over to it, because if twenty-some-odd years ago was any indication, turtles are about to become your entire life.
