I. Love. This. Trailer. 1994’s Armistad Maupin’s Tales Of The City was some of the best television I have every seen. It’s remarkable stuff and I can’t wait to go back to Barbary Lane. Which as I mention in my video, my expectations are REALLY high for this, which is problematic because More Tales Of […]
I caught the first season of Netflix’s reboot of Ultraman over the weekend, and it’s pretty good though it’s animated in the same way as other Netflix anime like Knights Of Sidonia and Godzilla, and it irritates me every time that I see it.
