We’ve all heard of Earth Day, but TV and DVD enthusiasts might say that this week brought us “Parallel Earth Day”.
Sunday, February 21 saw the FOX TV repeat of FAMILY GUY’s “The Road to the Multiverse”, where Stewie and Brian tour multiple, parallel Earths – the many "turns of Terra" including Disney, The Flintstones, and one where the roles of dogs and humans are reversed.
This is one of the very best episodes of FAMILY GUY, delivering laugh after laugh in grand style – and the Disney style animation of FAMILY GUY characters was amazing!
Not to be outdone, DVD stepped up on Tuesday, February 23 with JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRISIS ON TWO EARTHS. This made for DVD adventure takes DC Comics’ greatest heroes and places them in the sort of Parallel Earths adventure that has been a hallmark of DC Comics since the 1960s. In it, the Justice League meets their evil counterparts The Crime Syndicate. Superman and Ultraman, Batman and Owlman, etc. on Earth 3.
This, too, is the best of the Warner Bros. DC Comics made for DVD series. It will be reviewed on this Blog in the near future.
So, let’s compromise between last Sunday and Tuesday and call MONDAY, FEBRUARY 22 “Parallel Earth Day”!
…And let’s all hope we never find the Earth where I never started a Blog! How barren, lifeless, and unfulfilling THAT would be!
