If this is sign of things to come in terms the level of quality of Hulu’s original programming, than we’re all in luck. The world of television changing for the better. It’s good to see that the days of wasted channels (the ocho) and junk-food television consumption are coming to an end. If more companies like Hulu and Netflix start to provide quality material like Battleground, we’re on the way to some real television Democracy… And that’s just awesome.
Have a look at this picture just taken from the London Toy Fare. That’s right, this is the first image taken of the all new Thundercats. Growing up Thundercats was pretty special to me. I would wake up early each and every morning before school started to catch the reruns of Thundercats on local cable. During recess we would all take turns swinging from the monkey bars pretending to be the various thunder cats. Sadly, I was often given the character of Snarf. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this new series will be just as magical for today’s rug rats as the original was for me… many…many years ago.
