Bryon, I think that alone helps to explain 'soooo' much. LOL And I have to say, I thought that 'self-portrait' looked like another familiar face that needed a shave.
Space Ghost, Space 1999, and one of "the" best shows ever for a laugh "the Bugs Bunny Road Runner Show" (later I think it became "the .. hour") and yes, the 'horrible' cartoon violence... was part of the 'gag'! What was wrong with these people anyway?!
I totally agree with the idea, these shows were much better, before, they were redone. Its gone from funny to sad, now how the term "New and Improved", usally means it will be Neither once they've finished "improving it".
bvandewalker, I had almost forgotten, even though I have the dvd set right on my desk in my room! "Starship Troopers: The Roughneck Chronicles", how bad is that for memory? What 'ticked me off, was the fact they not only never completley made the entire series, they even left out a couple of the later episodes as well. But still one of my favorite shows. The CGI was reallly well done.
Like the 'original' Battlestar Galactica, SST:TRC also used some rerun 'file' footage, but not nearly as often as BSG. Your so right, that had to be one seriously tight FX budget.
