I've recently caught up with Bee and Puppycat Season 1 and 2.

I really enjoyed Season 1 with the whimsy and understated normality of the characters within a decidedly abnormal setting. I loved that they recorded their voice actors and simply kept the first take, mistakes and all, then animated the show around their vocal stumbles. It gives the series a great lack of polish that sets it apart from other shows. Also, a bunch of easter eggs make for enjoyable rewatching, especially with knowledge from the later episodes to guide the viewer.

Season 2 brought some closure to some open plotlines, but lacked the magic of the first season. It was still good, but more by-the-numbers.

RWBY Season 8 is here!

And wow...that may be the most depressing season premiere I've ever seen. Dark times ahead.

Ducktales has been canceled after three seasons.

Much as I've enjoyed the show, I feel like they never made it beyond cameos and references to the old show to contribute anything new, despite having more than enough time to do so.

I just finished the first season of Onyx Equinox, a show set in Mesopotamian culture, about mortals and the gods who toy with them.

Animation can be a bit rough at points, particularly in the first few episodes. But I absolutely love the way the gods are depicted, both stylistically and their role in the story. The mortals on the other hand, can be more annoying than interesting.

It's hard to say exactly what audience this is suited for...one minute there's nudity, gore, and horrific trauma. Then the rest of the episode is about a whiny boy with a ponytail who plays with pokemans. Pick a lane.

Overall though, a decent watch. I enjoyed some of the big reveals and plot twists towards the end. Hope it gets another season, but if not, at least the first season ended at a calm place.

Some guys are making remastered versions of the old Battletech cartoon

It's widely considered to be Not Very Good, but for what it's worth it is a corny satAM 90's cartoon, and there's dank early CGI sequences.  There was no real home release of the cartoon either so it's a big deal in terms of preservation.  The project is ongoing and apparently there should be 13 episodes.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Second season of Transformers: War for Cybertron is here.

I was very critical of the first season. Second season immediately felt better. Better music, better drama, better action. Nothing amazing, but just an all-around decent show compared to what came before.
Unfortunately the season suffered from pacing issues, with new characters and locations being injected multiple times each episode, only to then be deleted in later episodes, without giving adequate time for me to care about or indeed understand what was going on.

Second season is a step in the right direction, but this is still a difficult show to recommend.

Following last year's Central Park, the creator of Bob's Burgers has made yet another show, The Great North.

The show focuses on a family living in Alaska, doing Alaska things. Like with mooses and snowmobiles and plaid shirts. You know, Alaska stuff.
I don't know, I can't really put my finger on anything particularly creative or interesting going on here...yet I really enjoyed the first episode. Looking forward to more.
