the maxx

yay me! i finally ordered The Maxx (MTV cartoon from '96) series from amazon. i've been wanting this forever, started pricing it before this past christmas but it was unavailable new through amazon and the used copies were hella expensive. i checked today and someone had a "good" copy for $15. hey, as long as it plays, i'm a happy girl. and because i'm too happy...and lazy, to write a little "review" or whatever i've been doing here, here's a review of it from amazon (even though i KNOW the series is hella awesome because i watched them when they were on MTV):
Simon Kieth's popular comic book was adapted for television in this multipart animated series first broadcast on MTV. A little confusing, the series--which concerns a kind of hulking superhero and his attachment to a female therapist and her teenage client--is actually mesmerizing and surprisingly touching. The writing is unusually sophisticated, and Kieth's ability to create complex female characters and provide their incisive dialogue should be the envy of any male scribe. Parallel action set in a so-called outback--an escape from reality--is wild and evocative of childhood fantasies. This is a strangely beautiful show all around.

wow wow wow, i'm on a cloud. if you haven't seen this series, it slays.
