This is up a day late, but I’m posting it “on” the fourteenth just to keep things neat and tidy on the blog. It’s an impromptu topic, and it’s Robotech again, because talking about Robotech is easy for me. I just turn on the camera and the words fly out of my head. This time it’s about how we’re getting another round of 1980s toy and animation property relaunches and Robotech isn’t one of them. It’s also about how the approaches of these two relaunches could be applied to Robotech. I’m certain I’ve talked about how to relaunch Robotech before — dig around in the YouTube archives, I’m sure it’s in there — but I think I’ve got some slightly different angles this time out.
I can’t for the life of me remember what else I wanted to say here this week. I’m certain I wanted to talk about some anime, but since then I’ve finished watching The Macross Saga, watched Sentinels again (one of the triggers for the thoughts above), and watched Neil Gaiman’s episode of Doctor Who (about which more in a few short hours).
On the blog this week: thoughts on “The Doctor’s Wife” early Sunday morning, and then on the weekdays Rick, Lisa, and Minmei’s love triangle spins its wheels as our valiant Robotech defenders smack down Khyron’s Zentraedi rebels through the waning months of 2013. It’s the last full week of The Macross Saga in Robotech, In Brief.
