House of Anubis – My Review

First I’d like to start off by apologizing for taking so long to get this posted, I actually missed the initial airing of the premier on the first (I was so tired that I fell asleep and missed it!) But thankfully Monday the 10th and Tuesday 11th they re-aired the premier episodes so I was able to watch it from the beginning despite having missed it yesterday. (Wasn’t my fault, had to take my Mom to get her eyes examined and thank you Jesus that it wasn’t cataracts as the first doctor had told her it was.)

Anyway…the show really is as good as I thought it would be, it really is like the old Third Eye episodes that use to air back in the day and since I have all four of the original titles and watched them last year I should know what I’m talking about. Heck, I’ve even got my Mom hooked on it and she said exactly the same thing.

It’s mysterious and a little bit creepy and it really does keep you guessing as to what’s going to happen next. The acting…it is a little flimsy but the fact that it’s so well written really makes up for that. The ONLY thing I don’t like about the show is all that teenage romance garbage. I think Alfie and Amber are totally useless and do nothing to move the story along but then as I said I missed it yesterday and from the description Amber had a big part in discovering one of the clues so perhaps I should hold off judgment on her.

As of right now I think Patricia if my favorite character, she’s passionate and driven to find out that has happened to Joy which I really like however I do think that if she would just give Nina (the American girl right?) half a chance I think she’d find out a lot faster since I think that the two stories will eventually come together.

The commercials for the show are really good, they really make you want to tune in and find out what’s happening next time and the fact that you can follow along online is pretty cool however I do not. Yea, I’ve just got too much going on as always, plus it’s more fun to just watch every night and find out. But while I’m watching it I can’t help but think about The Sarah Jane Adventures and H2O: Just Add Water since I had mentioned once before that they also reminded me of The Third Eye as well and it make me wonder what other show could be added to these three to have the four story arches like in the old days. Anyone have any ideas?

Everyone take care, thank you for reading and if you happen to have Facebook you can now follow this blog though NetworkedBlogs as well.

With 'Curious George,' Illumination Looks To Make More Animation Mischief

With 'Curious George,' Illumination Looks To Make More Animation Mischief
July 30, 2010 | 1:04 pm

EXCLUSIVE: Filmgoers soon will have another round of adventures with the Man With the Yellow Hat.

Illumination Entertainment, the animation company founded by former Fox Animation President Chris Meledandri and whose movies Universal finances and distributes, is developing a new version of "Curious George."

The movie is expected to feature the wry animated images of "Despicable Me" and will spin a new story of George the monkey/chimpanzee (depending on whether you favor H.A. and Margret Rey's text or the tail-less images) who's taken out of the jungle by an eccentric explorer to live in the city, where mischief always seems to find him.

Universal and production company Imagine produced an animated "Curious George" just four years ago, in which Will Ferrell voiced the Man With the Yellow hat. Mired in development for years, the movie didn't entirely catch on with filmgoers, grossing just $58 million in the U.S. (A second installment, "Curious George 2: Follow that Monkey!," came out as a direct-to-DVD release in 2009.)

The Illumination film is expected to start from scratch. It's getting a script from Larry Stuckey, who wrote the upcoming "Little Fockers," the third installment in the "Meet the Parents" franchise, for Universal.

Universal is very keen on Illumination, which with "Despicable" gave the studio a long-awaited family-friendly animation hit. After the success of that film, Meledandri's company is also developing "Where's Waldo?" and "Dr. Seuss' the Lorax" movies as well as a sequel to "Despicable Me."

Reboots of movies that haven't been gone very long -- "Haunted Mansion" and "Spider-Man" -- continue to remain in vogue in Hollywood. They'll be an adventure, but we suppose if any character is up for one, it's Curious George.

Federal Judges Declare War on America's Families‏

Federal Judges Declare War on America's Families!

Second Circuit Court Says Nudity and Profanity are OK on TV at Any Time of Day…Even in front of Children!!

The Second Circuit Court in New York City has declared war on American families.

You may recall that in 2003, the ABC Television Network aired an episode of NYPD Blue, in which a woman undressed and stood totally naked in front of a child. The bipartisan Federal Communications Commission (FCC) unanimously agreed that the scene was in violation of existing decency laws, and fined 44 ABC affiliates that aired the episode before the 10:00 pm "safe harbor" time period.

Over the last several years, the entertainment industry’s army of high-priced lawyers dragged this case and the Fox v. FCC “fleeting profanity” case through the federal court system, shopping for a court with judges who would overturn the FCC’s rulings. Sadly they found one.

This past Tuesday, the New York-based U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals threw out the FCC’s fine against ABC for airing nudity in front of children, during prime time, on the airwaves the taxpayers own and that the TV networks use for free!

This is the same Second Circuit that declared the F-word was OK to be aired on broadcast television at any time – even in front of children!

In both cases, the PTC fought aggressively on behalf of the American people who overwhelming support FCC enforcement of existing decency laws. (In 2006, in response to public outcry over the Janet Jackson Super Bowl striptease, Congress overwhelmingly supported a ten-fold increase in indecency fines.)

And in both cases, three Manhattan judges imposed their personal standards on every family and child in America – and proclaimed that they know better than the Supreme Court, the Congress, the FCC, and the overwhelming majority of the American people.

As a result, children and families will be exposed to even more extreme content – because the networks know they’ll be able to get away with showing anything they want at any time of the day, and ignoring the broadcast decency law…because they know they can appeal to the anti-decency judges on the Second Circuit Court!

If you’re sick and tired of TV networks ignoring the broadcast decency law…

If you’re sick and tired of activist judges who ignore decades of legal precedent that says WE are right…

If you’re sick and tired of an entertainment culture that markets filth to children and families…


The FCC needs to know that we will not let this ruling stand, and neither should they! Write to the FCC today and demand they appeal this ruling to the Supreme Court immediately.

We did it before…and we can do it again!

Remember that just two years ago the US Supreme Court overturned the Second Circuit Court’s attempt to strip away the FCC’s ability to fine broadcasters for violating the decency law.

Here's what YOU can do to help protect your children:

Click here [ ] to send an e-mail message now to the FCC Chairman, Julius Genachowski demanding an immediate appeal of this outrageous ruling.

And please consider supporting the PTC financially.

Unlike the entertainment industry, with their countless billions of dollars, we are fighting a battle for the innocence of our children and grandchildren…and our only source of support is from our friends like YOU!

Please help us continue our fight for America's families!

Because our Children are Watching!

Paddington Bear - The Original Stop-Motion '70s U.K. Program is Coming with 2 DVD Titles
Cookie Jar/Mill Creek to release 'The Complete Classic Series', plus a best-of, this February Posted by David Lambert – 1/04/2011

A complete collection of the endearing, stop-motion classic shows based on the acclaimed books! Dressed in his characteristic duffle coat and oversized hat, cuddly Paddington Bear has been capturing the imagination of children around the world for generations. Paddington Bear, the series based on the internationally acclaimed books by Michael Bond, remains one of the most successful children's programs ever produced in the UK.

While the '90s animated Adventures of Paddington Bear have made it to DVD (back in 2002!), the original 1975 stop-motion program from the U.K. hasn't come to disc in the U.S.A. before. Now, however Cookie Jar Entertainment in conjunction with Mill Creek Entertainment have announced that on February 15th they will release both Paddington Bear - The Complete Classic Series with all 56 shorts on 3 DVDs (487 minutes) for $14.98 SRP, as well as Paddington Bear - Marmalade Madness with 28 episodes on a single disc (194 minutes) for $9.98 SRP. Video is full screen, and audio is English Dolby 2.0 Stereo. The Complete Classic Series release also features a lot of bonus content: for starters it includes all three Paddington Bear specials: "Paddington Birthday Bonanza," "Paddington Goes to School" and "Paddington Goes to the Movies". It also includes 15 bonus episodes from two other shows in the Cookie Jar library: The Wombles and Huxley Pig. Finally there is DVD-ROM content that includes Wallpaper, Activity Pages (Spot The Difference, Word Search and Color-in Pages) plus other printable fun (door hangers and finger puppets). Very nice! We've also got a look at the front box art for each of these upcoming releases:
