Top 50 Best Peanuts Strips

This was very difficult to make. I mean, with over 20,000 comics, narrowing them down to just 50 means I most likely forgot some fantastic ones. If there are any that you think I missed, let me know in the comments. For now, here's my 50 favorite Peanuts comics in chronological order. PS: The reason this looks weird is because I copy/pasted it from my DeviantArt. 1.   ((September 28, 1953)  It's always interesting to look back at early Peanuts. Most of the central  characters of this time

The Golden Girls season 2 scorecard

I'm not good with binging more than 2 or 3 episodes at a time. That and procrastination are why it took so long for me to watch this. Regardless, the fact that it's been about a month since I've seen some of these episodes is why this isn't a "10 words or less", but I still wanted to get this out. End of the Curse- 9/10 Ladies of the Evening- 10/10 Take Him, He's Mine- 10/10 It's a Miserable Life- 10/10 Isn't it Romantic- 10/10 Big Daddy's Little Lady- 5/10 Family Affair- 8

Recent Reviews #2: Chicken Run

Chicken Run is a stop motion animated movie released in 2000 and it's really boring. The movie is about a group of chickens that want to escape their farm, and when an American rooster arrives, the chickens hope that rooster can teach them to fly and escape The problem is that the story of this movie feels like it belongs in a 22 minute or maybe even 11 minute TV show. This leads to many scenes that feel dull. It also doesn't help that the movie has a very understated sense of humor where

Random Review #1: Shrek

This is a series where I'm going to review whatever random movie I come across on Netflix ranging from classics I haven't seen to random indie films to movies that just seem fun. First up is Shrek released in 2001 and It's pretty good. The story is straightforward, with Shrek being tasked by Lord Farquaad to rescue Princess Fiona for Farquaad to marry, and that works for a character driven movie like this. The characters themselves are all fun. Shrek is a good straight man and he bounc

Peanuts Movie Reviews #5: The Peanuts Movie

"The Peanuts Movie" is the fifth Peanuts movie released in 2015 and it's okay. This is the only Peanuts movie so far without Charles Schulz, Lee Mendelson, and Bill Melendez (except his recordings used for Snoopy and Woodstock). This really shows as this doesn't feel like a Peanuts movie, which is pretty ironic seeing as it's called "The Peanuts Movie". It's a lot more fast paced and the comedy relies a lot more slapstick rather than verbal and situational humor. There are some good verbal an

Peanuts Movie Reviews #4: Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown

"Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown" was the fourth Peanuts movie released in 1980 and man is it boooring. It's about Charlie Brown, Linus, Peppermint Patty, and Marcie going to France and Charlie Brown and Linus staying in a mysterious chateau. The biggest problem with this movie is how it has no stakes for over half the movie. Up until Pierre says that the chateau is dangerous 33 minutes in, there is no conflict or reason to care. Even then, the story is abandoned for another 15 minutes for a sce

Peanuts Movie Reviews #3: Race For Your LIfe, Charlie Brown

The third Peanuts movie is called, "Race For Your Life, Charlie Brown" released in 1977 and it's kinda funny, in a "so bad it's good" way. Starting with the story, it just goes wherever it wants. Plot threads start and stop at random and what's the main plot one second is forgotten 10 minutes later. It starts with a story of the Peanuts kids at camp, being rivals with another team. The rivals such generic bullies that I'm not sure if they have names. Maybe the writers wrote down "insert gener

Peanuts Movie Reviews #2: Snoopy, Come Home

"Snoopy, Come Home" was the second Peanuts movie released in 1972, and I really hate it. It's about Snoopy getting a letter from Lila, his original owner, and going to visit her. There are two ways someone could look at this movie; as a fun adventure or as a drama. It fails at both. For the drama aspect, the movie spends a long time on how depressed Charlie Brown is at Snoopy leaving, but the movie never established a connection between Charlie Brown and Snoopy. All Snoopy does with C

Peanuts Movie Reviews #1: A Boy Named Charlie Brown

I already talked about my thoughts on the comic, so I thought the next logical step would be to talk about the animated adaptations. First, I was going to review all of the specials, but then I realized that there were 45 of them, so I decided to just tackle the movies.The first Peanuts movie was released in 1969 and it's called "A Boy Named Charlie Brown". I'd recap the plot, but that's not really important in this movie. There is a story about Charlie Brown winning a spelling bee and going to

Top 5 Moral Orel episodes

I've been a big fan of "Moral Orel" for a while. The show is a very adult stop motion religious satire that revolves around Orel Puppington, a boy who lives in the town of Moralton. Most episodes of the first 2 seasons follow a formula of Orel hearing a sermon from the reverend, misinterpreting it, and getting into trouble, ending in his father, Clay, teaching a toxic lesson to Orel. The formula ended at the end of season 2 and in season 3 when the show shifted away from religious satire an

Disenchantment season 1 review

So I just watched "Disenchantment", the new show by Matt Groening, and it was really disappointing. For those who don't know what the show is, it's about a princess named Bean who doesn't want to be a princess. She goes on adventures through the kingdom of Dreamland and beyond, along with an elf named Elfo and her personal demon, Luci. Together they rebel against Bean's father, get drunk, and generally screw around.   I'm going to give my score first and then go into why I dislike

Scores and overall thoughts on Total Drama Island and Total Drama Action

Total Drama is a series that I used to watch a while ago. I remember watching up to "All Stars" and then getting bored of it.  Recently, I found that Netflix had Total Drama, so I though I would take a look back at the series to see if it holds up. Total Drama Island:  The Not So Great Outdoors (7/10) The Big Sleep (8/10) Dodgebrawl (7/10) Not Quite Famous (6/10) The Sucky Outdoors (6/10) Phobia Factor (9/10) Up the Creek (3/10) Paintball Dear Hu

Peanuts: A Retrospective

I'm a big fan of the peanuts comics.  I have a big book full of comics ranging from the first comic in 1950 to the last comic in 2000. What I want to talk about is a devolution in the quality of the comic.    A comic from the 1950's     A comic from the 1990's   It went from an emotionally compelling, often sadly funny comic to incredibly safe, cutesy humor with a few existential rambles from someone who doesn't understand what he's talking about.

Every episode of "The Golden Girls" season 1 reviewed in 10 words or less

I've been watching a lot of "The Golden Girls" so I thought giving it the "10 words or less" treatment would be fun.  I'll be doing this for every season as I watch them.     Pilot: A nice start, but nothing great (7/10) Guess Who's Coming to the Wedding: Dorothy telling off Stan was amazing (9/10) Rose the Prude: A very emotional and funny episode (9/10) Transplant: A simply solid episode (7/10) The Triangle: A boring cliche plot plus mediocre comedy = ba
