Just forget the words and sing along

Wow. Just wow.

If you have access to the LA Times, be sure to pick up today's copy. Enterprise fans from around the world put their money together and put a full-page ad in today's edition of the LA Times, urging fans from all over the USA to send in a letter to the head of the UPN Network to renew the show.

And that's not all. They're also planning protests. The first protest will be on Monday in New York City, in front of Viacom's world HQ (Viacom is the parent company of Paramount, and Star Trek.) The next protest is scheduled for Friday the 25th, and it'll be in Hollywood, in front of the landmark Paramount front gates. There's even a rumour going around that, if the Hollywood protest is big enough and loud enough, that the cast of Enterprise might even come out to say hello.

You know, I love to see this kind of democracy in action. But doing it over a cancelled TV show...isn't that a bit much?

Anyway, today Pokemon: Destiny Deoxys mades its DVD debut. That would be movie #7. We've known for a while that it takes place in a city based on Vancouver, and it shows. There's segments of the movie where I was going, "Dude, that's Stanley Park. The Pokemon Center is the Vancouver Library. Whoa! The villain's lair is Science World!" Obviously, the film's creators visitied the same tourist spots I did.

Another interesting facet of the film has to do with the subplot. It caused a bit of a stir in the poke-community when it was learned that this would be the first Pokemon film without a Pikachu short film. (And, as it's the longest Pokemon film, I can see why they decided to drop it.) So, it's interesting to see how they work the hijinks associated with the short films into the subplot.

It was pretty good, though...as far as the Pokemon films go. I'm still wondering if I should do a proper review for the main site.

Next Issue...Destiny Markoxis
