I’m tossing this trailer onto the site for all of the wonderful ladies in our readership based on my remembering just how many girls I grew up with that absolutely loved the animated series “Jem and The Holograms”. When the series first aired in 1985, it seemed to inspire the female youth of the nation and was quite the success. The show came care of the same studios that gave us both “G.I. Joe” and “Transformers” which were regularly watched by this writer and while I never saw a single episode of Jem, I admired its art and how it had an impact on my female companion. Recently the trailer was released for the upcoming live action musical film and I’ve embedded it for you all to see.
I’m getting to this a little past the show’s premier, but that was based on my being busy with all the posts involving the NY Comic Con 2012 so please pardon me for the lapse. In any event, DC Comics has given us a live action television series called “Arrow” which will bring to life the adventures of a hero we know and love called Green Arrow. The official byline is below:
The television series iteration of the DC Comics character stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, an eccentric billionaire who was recently discovered alive on a deserted island after having been presumed dead for five years. Queen returns to Starling City and begins moonlighting as a crime fighter. Arrow premieres on Wednesday, October 10th.
I’ve touched upon my interest in the superhero side of the entertainment realm by mentioning about my almost lifelong appreciation for the comic book medium and the adventures of great heroes such as Spider-Man, Batman, Superman and The Fantastic Four to name a choice few. It was one of the main reasons that I enjoyed being a member of the press at the 2010 NY Comic Con & Anime Festival and all of this brings me to the reason for this particular posting. It seems as though NBC is taking a plunge into the heroic action-adventure line of programming once again by offering us a show called “The Cape”. The show poster is below.
