Titan Maximum premiere

Figures that a new show about a giant fighting robot would come out around the same time I conceive the idea for this blog. Is it a blessing or a curse? Gives me new subject matter, but the guys at Stupid Monkey Productions do such a superior job that it makes my robot comedy look stupid in comparison.

Who am I kidding? I can't hold a grudge against these guys. You just gotta catch an episode. The premise of the show is that the Titan Robot team are pitted against a former member. One of the pilots is a monkey named Leon.

The show is a good mix of the Robot Chicken satirical comedy and gory action, and something completely unheard of before from the usual producers of animated sketch comedy: an over-arching singular plot. When I first heard that the program was going to premiere I was skeptical towards the concept. Right now, I'm still a cynic and I say I need to watch another episode before deciding whether I like this format or not.

Isn't it refreshing to know that good old quality cartoon robot action is still around? Next week expect another write up, and maybe a synopsis? I don't want to write anything down yet because Adult Swim is rebroadcasting at 3:30AM eastern, and I think you should watch the pilot episode for yourself!

ps: if you do want a spoiler, my favorite quote from the show tonight was from the lead pilots younger brother, playing a table top robot roleplaying game. I paraphrase (because I'm sick): "My brother is the leader of Titan Maximum. What does your brother do? Jerk off and cry."

Shows got a bunch of potential.
