Thank the lord for Crackle, because they have the entire ADV dub. (I just got an XBox 360 a few weeks ago and recently downloaded the app)

I just watched the first episode a few days ago, and I have to say that the dubbing was decent so far. I also like the fact that they're showing the thing uncut so far.

My only complaints about Crackle is that they show advertisements at the most annoying moments, don't use the correct placement of the Japanese names (they use given name first, clan name last, basicly Westernizing it), and they used the Robotech titles for the episodes,.

I'll give a full review later on, when I finish the series.

It's Wanzerfan.

He's got a gift for seeing everything wrong.

Up to and including not realizing that Robotech kept most of the original Macross episode titles intact.

No we're talking about Highlander.

Which is serious business.

Oh, sorry.

Yeah, Tochiro showed off his Highlander anime DVD set this evening.

I remained unimpressed. As I've said before, my feeling is that when Sean Connery dies, the movie dies with him.

I've heard people are 50/50 on that anime. It's a Madhouse production so the old guard likes some of it. Of course it's a Highlander spinoff so many of them also hate it.

I gotta admit, I've never seen it. But I've only ever seen the first Highlander movie, so I'm a total n00b.

Don't worry, you have seen the only GOOD Highlander movie. Never has a "franchise" gone downhill so far and so quickly.

Hey! The TV series is pretty good.

It has Richard Moll and Adrian Paul's total failure at every accent known to man.

Endgame is just an awful and confused mess by people who didn't understand why people liked the first movie and TV series. There's like three cuts of that movie and you need each one just to make sense of it.

So we went from Macross to Highlander in just a few posts? That's something. :)
