Fantastic Four Cartoon, Marvel ComicsFantastic Four: World’s Greatest Heroes was an animated series that had a lot of potential, but was ultimately a let down due to an ever changing timeslot and the network airing the episodes out of order.

Now, thanks to Marvel Comics’ official website, we have another chance to follow the adventures of Marvel’s “first family” of superheroes. Twenty-six episodes of the series were made and showcases the team facing off with such villains as Namor, Puppet Master, Impossible Man, and Doctor Doom, and teaming up with other heroes such as the Hulk. Iron Man, Ant-Man, and She-Hulk. All of the episodes are currently up on Marvel’s site and can be watched online.

Were you a fan of Fantastic Four: World’s Greatest Heroes? Would you love to see Marvel bring back the series or spinoff a new Fantastic Four series?

I saw this commercial on TV the other day and like a train wreck I could only watch in horror with my jaw dropped that somehow this got made. Don’t get me wrong, it is hysterical, but they take the creepiness of “The King” and excel him to an all new level.

Even worse, this ad is for a kids meal…

Tonight at 8pm on NBC is an all new episode of Chuck. Last week, Chuck’s father (Scott Bakula) was captured by the evil spy agency Fulcrum. Now, his last hope might lie in the hands of Chuck’s double-crossing ex, Jill (Jordana Brewster).

Week in and week out, Chuck is one of the most consistant and enjoyable shows. The series is in just its second season and has a lot more stories to tell. Right now Chuck is on the bubble for renewal. Click here to find out what you can do to help save Chuck.

Wow. There is a ton of stuff going on; television shows ending with characters dying left and right, and the “summer” movie season has begun a bit early this year. Here are some cool tidbits from the past week…

  • After a crazy 70 million dollar plus opening weekend, was there any question about if we’d see a 5th Fast and Furious movie? (E Online) My suggestions… Fast and Furious: Pit Stop or Fast and the Furious: Truck Route.
  • I LOVE b-sci-fi and b-horror and Mutant Chronicles looks like a perfect blend of both.  With Ron Perlman, Thomas Jane, Devon Aoki, and the great John Malkovich, we couldn’t ask for a better genre cast. (Yahoo) What do you think? Gonna try to catch it in theaters? Or wait to have a movie night?
  • My new way to waste time? My Brute. You set the match against friends or strangers and sit back and watch the little guys battle it out.
  • This has to be the best excuse I have ever heard anyone use for why they hit someone. Man, I love Woody Harrelson. (CNN)
  • Edgar Wright has started video production diaries for his new film adaption of the popular comic book Scott Pilgrim. You can check ’em out here.
  • If you are a Terminator fan, even if you gave up on the Sarah Connor Chronicles, you’ll want to watch the season two finale. I was pleasently surprised with the episode, which I think was the best of the series. Catch it while it is still online… (Fox)

Heroes, Season 3

Did you drop Heroes last season? Earlier this season? Well, the past few episodes have shown a lot of hope, with Bryan Fuller’s episode titled “Cold Snap” being the best episode since season 1. It just might be time to give the show another chance and thanks to Hulu, you can catch up on all of the season 3 episodes as we count down to the finale. Click here to be saved.
