Alex: I’ve been watching this on Netflix and am up to volume 2. Thus far the series seems like a worthy successor to Justice League & JLU.

Finally, the picks of the week. Blaine says, “I want to get around to seeing Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol at some point, but I haven’t seen it yet.” Alex say, “I, on the other hand, have seen Ghost Protocol, and while it’s more in the line of Bond than Mission: Impossible, it’s still an excellent film, and definitely worth checking out. Also, I really need to get around to watching the Sharpe series.”

One reply

  1. I’v caught a few of the Sharpe’s series on TV, they are really good, right up there with the Horatio Hornblower series. They’ve priced the BD’s a bit high though.
