stinglikeabee: classic denny colt  (GRR MILLER)
I love [livejournal.com profile] the_dark_cat.

In other news, I spent the weekend watching the entire 2 seasons of Big Guy and Rusty. For those much younger than I (sob, sob) this was a series aired on Fox's defunct Fox Kids animation block ten years ago. Produced by the same team of the animated Men In Black, the show was loosely based on a Dark Horse published comic of the same name and featured a boy robot and his much larger patriotic idol, the Big Guy. Unlike the comic with its main influence from Japanese monster movies and robot manga (Astro Boy anyone?), the show's landscape is wholly American: vaguely 50s character design mixed with futuristic mecha, with a healthy dose of 90s pop culture snapbacks (Hannibal Lecter-mind vampire, oh my).

Speaking of canceled shows, tomorrow is live-or-die night for Chuck. Aw no, we hardly knew ye! It's not official, but it's very much a possibility the show might not be renewed. Other than scour cbs for issues of the limited Chuck comic series released months ago, what are fans doing? Subway, for one. The idea is to drive sales for Subway to show fan appreciation for the sponsors of Chuck; after all it is sponsors who decide whether a show is making money or not. The specifics of how this helps the show is iffy, but its heart is in the right place. So: if you don't want Chuck to go off air, Monday is when you'll walk into Subway, spend some hard earned money, and write a comment about saving Chuck into the suggestions box. Or call nbc/tweet/blog about Chuck. Fingers crossed!
