  1. Hi Frank,

    A quick comment regarding the Last Airbender stuff: I too have some concerns about the upcoming live action movie (but I’ll still watch it).

    I can highly recommend the animated series though. It’s actually not Japanese though, I’s a US production by Nicelodion, but it’s still very much in the Anime style. Give it a try, the series is pretty short compared to Naruto and stuff (61 episodes) so you should be able to blow though it pretty fast 😛

  3. return to form frank, what i really loved about the overnightscape in it’s golden era. 2 hours of you going on.
    my only grudge, the numeral naming; i really dug the random titles of FN… kind of like the way you used to
    have a random quote begin a show and it weaved itself into the conversation later. I think the numbering is a bit too
    uniform. that being said. that’s very minor. I’m
    really happy it’s back to this stellar cinematic format. thanks!!
