Summer 2017 Final Thoughts – Part I

Doesn’t it seem odd to have multiple parts of final thoughts?  To me finality implies a definite ending.  But it’s a necessity to keep the post length down and get some content out.  Some shows are easy peasy to wrap up, others not so much.  Today, I’m going to tackle the easy ones.

Let’s hit the jump and get the party started!

Summer 2017 – Week 9

Man, it’s been hard to finish up this entry today… The weather is finally much more clement, but the air is still smokey.  On top of that, the landscaping crew has been hard at work today and their !#@$ leaf blowers always give me a mild headache.

He’s going for speed! Summer 2017 Week 3

Restarting in midstream means there’s a lot to cover…   So I’m going for a slightly different approach this week.

(I ended up dropping Prince of Stride, but it’s still a cool AMV.)

Rather than trying to cover every show in depth, this is going to be a quick and broad overview of the season to date. So, hit the jump and let’s get running!
