America loves Gir
My Invader Zim DVD arrived in the mail on Monday, and I'm really enjoying it. Of course, I've seen these cartoons a million times already, but it's worth it just for the DVD quality picture and sound. Not to mention the extremely entertaining audio commentary tracks from the creators, which -- despite some pretty heavy editing -- are still full of jaded jabs at Nickelodeon for censoring (and eventually cancelling) the show.
It's amazing to hear just how bitter creator Johnen Vasquez really is about the entire process, but I sure as hell don't blame him. It must be tough to move from the self-directed world of independent comic publishing to non-stop compromises of network television. I know I would certainly have problems with it.
