SUPER RAD!

In what appears to be to now my monthly blog post, I'll just randomly hype up a TV show that I've recently watched and really liked.  I actually meant to do this before with TV shows "Pickle and Peanut" and "Agent Carter", so you should watch those ones or whatever.

I'm here to talk to you today about the totally awesome, totally rad "children's" TV program, "The Aquabats! Super Show!"  The Aquabats! are a band I've been aware of for like the past fifteen years or more.  I had heard of them, but then bought one of their cassette's from a thrift store because back when I was still driving my truck which had a tape player.  Anyway, over the years I bought more of their albums and kept and eye on them.



Then it was announced they were getting their own TV show on a network called, The Hub.  I don't get that one, so I had to wait for a DVD release and when Season 1 was finally released I added it to my Amazon wish list and then never got around to buying it.  I'm not sure why, I always ended up just buying something else instead.   In that time the show aired and then unfortunately got cancelled.  Years past...

Then not that long I was bored and was looking at random crap on the internet and made my way to the Aquabats! website where I found out they just released season 2/3 of The Aquabats! Super Show! on blu-ray.  I figured it was finally time to cave it and ordered the blu-ray from the Aquabats! website and then ordered the DVD from Amazon.


Now that I finally had both the season sets, it was time to get to work.  I worked tirelessly and managed to get through everything in three days.  That wasn't too hard to since since it is only 13 episodes for season one, 5 episodes for season two and three "specials" which I guess are season three.

I feel like I'm rambling a bit here, but long story short, it's good and I want more!  It is a children's show, but some of the humor is aimed more at adults.  It's like a mix of the old Batman show, Power Rangers and The Monkees.  The effects and monsters sometimes look cheesy, but it actually makes them look better.  Each episodes usually has the band fighting a monster and includes two cartoon shorts and a fake parody commercial.  The show was nominated multiple times for a Daytime Emmy and even won one.  I made Cody watch the episode, "Haunted Battletram!" and he even laughed!  Usually, Cody hates everything, so you know it's good.

Check out the full length Christmas episode!
