Of all the times I've heard this phrase, it picked this one to give me a mental image of Johnny Gilbert doing the intro for Penn and Teller's Showtime series. ("This . . . is . . . Bullshit!"...)

So clearly what you need for next season is a TV-poker-style hand-display camera, plus expert commentators who can comment out of earshot and speculate on what each of the players is thinking as they play their hands: "Wil has drawn eight gold on turn 5. What do you do here, Stephen?" "Good question, Dave. Normally, I say if you have eight gold, you buy a Province, no question. But that would make his deck more than 25% victory points at this point in the game."

I was less crestfallen than impressed with myself for recognizing William Daniels as the voice of KITT when I saw him in St. Elsewhere... but then I was a bit older at the time (14 when KR debuted). brainwise: there was a super-motorcycle show: Streethawk. Unfortunately the rider wasn't as cool as Ponch and Jon, plus the bike didn't talk. After the success of Knight Rider, there was a spate of super-vehicle shows - see also: Airwolf. I think there was even a train one. Seems kinda limiting.

Uhm, Wendy and Marvin (and Wonderdog) totally came first. They were replaced by Zan and Jayna (and Gleek). Maybe they started rerunning the pre-"Challenge" SF when you turned 11 or something?

Pretty much guaranteed not to make it. Jaime Reyes has already appeared in the series as the current Blue Beetle - note that the clip begins with the subtitle "Two Years Ago".

I love the B&B series, and I hail the return of a lighter Batman; the current comics incarnation - OK, the immediately previous one who is now temporarily deceased - didn't exactly adhere to the trademark advice in your website's header. But I wouldn't say the toon is quite appropriate for 5-year-olds, at least not always. The Christmas Red Tornado episode with the marauding robotic Santas getting decapitated/blown up and attacking kids? That was just a little too much, at least for my 5-year-old. Looking forward to this week's. Hope my unreliable Comcast DVR manages to record it - it's about 50/50 so far.
