From days of long ago, from uncharted regions of the universe, comes a legend....


I discovered that Voltron: Defender of the Universe is available on DVD!  *squeal!*  I loved this show when I was a kid!  Well, the Lion Voltron anyway, I always thought the Vehicle Voltron was stupid.  Even through I hadn't seen the show in decades, I could still quote the opening narration.

My SO and I watched the first 4 episodes last night.  It's a lot cheesier than I remember.  Especially Sven's voice.   "Kitty is excited" became a running gag for us.   Still loads of fun though.

I remarked that this show seemed awfully violent for a cartoon, but apparently it was much toned down from the original Japanese GoLion series.

Unfortunately, only the first 3 of 5 volumes has been released.  Wah!


I found a copy of Phoenix Wright, Ace Attorney for cheap yesterday.   This game is so much fun!  You play the role of the rookie lawyer Phoenix Wright.  You have to investigate crime scenes, question people, and then cross-examine witnesses in court.  It's kind of like a choose-your-own-adventure detective novel.  The facial expressions on the witnesses can be hilarious at times, and the music is great, especially when you manage to unravel a witness' testimony.  The first case is pretty easy and fairly short, but it gets a lot harder (and longer) from there.  The prosecuting attorney can be downright tricky and sometimes what appears to be an obvious clue gets turned around and used against you.

Most memorable moment so far:  A witness gets so flustered on the stand he rips off his toupee and throws it in Wright's face.
