RETROSPECULATIVE TV: Star Blazers: "Jupiter's Floating Continent" (Season 1, Episode 5)

The Argo is on its way to Jupiter. My second favorite plant next to earth, because we have oxygen, Mountain Dew, Star Craft 2, and sunflower seeds.

RETROSPECULATIVE TV: Star Blazers: "Test Warp to Mars" (Season 1, Episode 4)

Welcome to episode four. At least I think its episode four. The DVD does not do a good job of breaking up the episodes, they did not space the DVD by episode, they just put episodes 1 thru 5 together and then broke it up into four chapters, see my confusion, four does not go into five very well.

RETROSPECULATIVE TV: Star Blazers: "Ultra-Menace Missile" (Season 1, Episode 3)

Episode three starts with the official launch of the spaceship Argo. Now I know you might be a little confused because we launched the spaceship in my last review, but apparently that was not the official launch. How do I know this one is the official one? Because they are having a parade! And everyone knows nothing is official until you have a big parade.

RETROSPECULATIVE TV: Star Blazers: "The Battle at Pluto" AND "Carrier Attacks the Sleeping Yamato" (Season 1, Episodes 1 and 2)

I grew up in the 80’s and it seems to me that cartoons back then were more “EPIC”, with stories about real heroes and their struggles. Today most of the cartoons my kids watch are just short blurts of farts and shots of butt cracks, nothing that requires an attention span of more than one minute. Don’t get me wrong there have been some great cartoons in recent years, one of which is my all-time favorite: “Avatar the Last Airbender”. That being said I still believe the cartoons of the 80’s, as a whole, were far more heroic.
