    Wanted to back up Rodrigo on the Seeker. It’s good for every reason he stated. And Bridget, the love slave maker, is also my new number one of all that is sexy!

    The show is good. But the books are awesome. Well most of them. The show intrigued me enough to start reading the series, and it’s good, bordering on great. There are some lag points, one book itself was unnecessary, but for the most part good.

    I know the old saying that the book is always better than the series. And the show is kinda like Smallville in its ‘what if’ Superman origin, where it takes parts from the book and tells it slightly differently. But if they pull out some of the stuff in the later books and stick close to the story, this show is going to be awesome. Mark my words.

    I loved Buckaroo Bonzai with passion.

    When I first discovered the connection between BB and Big Trouble, it just felt right. Both movies were beautiful compilations of archetypes.

    BB seemed to beg so much more. It was as if it wanted to be a comic book series, and a cartoon, and a serial.

    Have to say that the commentary track by W.D. Richter on the DVD is a bit weird. He keeps talking about how BB really exists, and the movie is actually a biopic. He really commits to it in a way that winds up seeming a bit off-putting.

    I LOVED the DVD commentary, with him alongside the ‘real’ Reno! It was so ‘meta’ and fitting for such a great, bizarre flick!

    Anyone who loves Buckaroo Banzai should find and read Earl Mac Rauch’s novel. It expands and adds so much to the story. You learn more about characters who are only briefly mentioned in the movie, like Pecos. Plus Hanoi Xan and the World Crime League are ever present in the background.
