On this installment, I look back at anime series whose home video left something (and several disks) to be desired. There’s nothing more irritating to a collector than something being incomplete.
We all need some joy in our lives right now, and as you find yourself sitting through the week between Christmas and New Years, you might consider digging into some classic Holiday specials. Nick Izumi thinks so too, which is why he’s decided to give us five reasons to love one of his favorites.
And by that, I of course refer to the He-Man & She-Ra Christmas Special.
So sit back, make some cocoa, and listen to Nick explain why you should love this classic
toy commercial children’s special. Let the commercialism “holiday spirit” warm your hearts, people. Your cold, black cynical hearts.
Just like Skelator.
It’s the holiday season, and that means we’re all being inundated with Christmas carols and various yuletide specials. But sometimes, when you pay really close attention to them, there are things that just don’t quite feel right. They just sort of come off as wrong.
Most of us just keep rolling and try not to think about that stuff, but not our Nick Izumi. A few years ago he reacted to Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, and he’s back at it again with another classic Carol/Special combination.
This time around? It’s Frosty the Snowman.
And Frosty has it coming.
So some people got a little miffed at the end of the first issue of Steve Rogers: Captain America… which I’m sure has been spoiled for you elsewhere. But we’re not going to spoil it for you unless you decide to go further.
Nick Izumi is our resident Captain America expert, and so rather than write something up about it, we decided it was best to just put the video response he posted to his YouTube channel. So if you’ve got eleven minutes and don’t mind spoilers, listen to Nick’s pretty reasoned response…
…and why everyone just needs to calm the frick down.
I don’t talk much about how I feel about Deadpool, but since his movie is opening this weekend, I thought I’d share my hopes and fears.
Much to my shock, Trae and Pher haven’t seen Ant-Man yet. So in place of a special episode of Nerd & Tie, here’s the video I made with N&T vet Rena Innocenti for all your in-depth Ant-Man review needs!
Oh hey, is it a Thursday? Yes. Have be been super inconsistent about keeping this feature going? Maybe. Do I really care right now? Not really.
So in this installment of Throwback Thursday, I’ve dug back through Nick Izumi’s Youtube archives and pulled out a random video from January of 2009. What is it? Well, it’s “Nick Izumi Takes on Gundam F91,” and since I know nothing about Gundam I have no idea what he’s going to say about it. Nick knows a lot about Gundam though, so you should let him talk at you for nine minutes about this particular installment in the franchise.
Because it’s Thursday, and you need it.
Hey, it’s Thursday – and that means there’s like a 50/50 shot of me posting a Throwback Thursday video! And since you’re reading this… I did? Totally did. Anyway, in this installment we go back to 2010 when The Nick Izumi Show took on Doctor Who. He did this episode before a single Moffat episodes had ever aired.
And he seemed so excited about it.
Which is hilarious if you’ve ever had a conversation about Doctor Who since then.
Hey, it’s Thursday! And it means it’s time for our semi-regular Throwback Thursday feature! We’re inconsistent! Anywho, in this installment we dig back into the archives of the Nick Izumi Show and come up with his review of Frank Miller’s adaptation of Will Eisner’s “The Spirit.”
Don’t let Frank Miller kill you all kinds of dead.
‘Tis the season for Holiday films with terrible messages, and since Nick nicely took on the Rankin Bass classic Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer back in 2010, I thought I’d share it in this attempt to revive “Throwback Thursday” on Nerd & Tie.
I swear I’ll be better about posting these, really.
