New on the Tube is a series devoted to reviewing relatively new television shows and determining how they may (or may not) appeal to their intended audiences, where the shows are going, and what can be done to make them better.


Show Premise: 


Hoping to make the world see the Hulk as a hero and not a menace, Rick Jones decides to web-broadcast his and the Hulk’s lives in order to gain some public sympathy.  Other Gamma-irradiated “friends” help the Hulk in his adventures, working together to make the world a better place for all living creatures, be they big “monsters” or not.

I just finished my 2nd reading of Warp Zone by Ted Lange IV. (Ted Lange III was Isaac on Love Boat!)  What a weird comic this is.  It has some identity issues at times, but it's still very entertaining, I think the comic will be perfect for the ADD watchers of Ren and Stimpy and the gamers who loved Afro-Samurai . . . also some of us kids who grew up with Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids.

The end is beginning, Scoobies. With this week’s release of the final issue of Angel & Faith, writer Christos Gage and artist Rebekah Isaacs perfectly close their brilliant, and arguably flawless, season in the sequential art Buffy-verse. Much like the series itself, Angel & Faith #25 is full of epic conflict, heartrending pathos, and a message about the continuing quest for redemption.

The Staff of Fanboy Comics warned you that this day would come. In fact, we traveled through time on August 4th to tell you about the activation of Skynet. And now, prepare to welcome our new computer overlords; it is Judgment Day.

Judgment Day, also known as J-Day, refers to the day in the Terminator film that the artificial intelligence Skynet became self aware and started a nuclear strike on America, Russia, and other regions, killing three billion people. Due to the effects of time travel, as well as several film, TV, and novel adaptations of the Terminator story, the month, day, and year of Judgment Day has varied over the years.

Ridiculous Fishing is a simple game about a man named Billy who likes to fish. Now, Billy is not content to fish like the rest of us. No waiting around for hours with nothing to show for it other than cold and sore fingers, a bad sunburn, and two fish that will burn more calories to clean than they could possibly provide. God, why couldn’t we go on a real vacation? Billy casts a line and then proceeds to dodge every fish he can as the lure descends, because the second it hits a fish, it starts right back up. Then, Billy tries to hit all the fish, so he can catch them all. Finally, when he gets to the surface with the dozens of fish on the line, he flings the whole lot of them into the sky and shoots them. With a gun.

For reals.

David Sedaris fans have waited a long time for this moment. Finally, one of his essays has been turned into a feature film. The chosen piece was taken from Sedaris’ 1997 collection of essays, Naked, and was the inspiration for the screenplay (adapted by Kyle Patrick Alvarez). C.O.G. follows Samuel (Jonathan Groff, Glee, Boss), an Ivy league student who’s having an identity crisis, as he leaves his life behind to work on an apple picking farm.

Take an Academy Award-winning screenwriter, a retired Army Major, and a founding member of the renowned US Navy SEAL Team 6.  Put them in a room.  Throw in one of the most classic films in Japanese cinema.  Add the talents of a brilliant Italian artist.  Mix well, and what do you get?  Something timeless, moving, and chillingly exciting.
