* ''The Hub'' announcing a CrossThrough between ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'', and ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeRenegades'' had some strange responses through the fanbase, most thought it was a horrible idea, others thought to give it a chance with the high quality of all the shows named... The latter proved to be right, as the CrossThrough was well-done given the threats of the universes swapping, mostly because they're generally {{Outside Context Villain}}s, the Autobots teaming up with MECH, having to fight Cobra Commander (and unlike in "Too Human", ''his organization appears too''), the Joes having to deal with Discord, and the Mane cast having to deal with ''Unicron the Destroyer''. Hope that CrossOver sequel film coming soon manages to one-up it!

* The concept threw me at first, but ''Southern'' ''Series/IronChef'' is more compelling than the Japanese original, much less ''Iron Chef America''. The two-hour special between Iron Chef Cajun and Iron Chef Lowcountry was a tournament for the ages ... enough to make one forget the ignominy of "Battle Chicken Gizzard," when the challenger's bogarting of the Crisco led to Iron Chef Short Order's umbrage and eventual dual-wield assault (griddle/tire tool).\\

** Every fan on several continents can still act out the climax of Season 5's finale challenge, when Iron Chef Soul Food--having just survived his second coronary of the year--climbed off the floor, grabbed his still-live defibrillator, and used it to ''brown the marshmallows on his sweet potato casserole as the buzzer rang''.

* The SquirrelBoy game is just awesome. It sucks how people bash it without playing it just because it's a squirrel boy game.
* Nintendo made one hell of a good choice to add Runouw (creator of ''Super Mario 63'') to thier development team. Not only did the next ''SuperMarioBrothers'' intallment had fludd, the nozles and the caps returning, but it is the first Mario game to have a level creator. Although the star coins, from [=SM63=], return, yet some of them are real hard to find.

* "VideoGame/BlazBlue: The Series" turned out to be much better than I expected, despite the change in both the English and Japanese voice casts. It was weird having TimCurry of all people as SelfDemonstrating/YukiTerumi, but he pulled it off, and RyoHorikawa's Terumi is no slouch either. SeanSchemmel and Brina Palencia also shine in this series as well.

* I expected the VideoGame/TeamFortress2 JRPG "Team Fortress 2: Hearts of Australium" to tank, but Valve and Square Enix pulled through. TimCurry and ChristopherSabat play each other off hilariously as Grey Mann and Saxton Hale respectively. Grey is the main antagonist [[spoiler:for the first quarter]] of the game. [[spoiler: He's killed by his own grandson [[TheStarscream Silver Mann]]. [[TeensAreMonsters From then on, HE becomes]] [[BigBad the REAL main villain]]. (He also happens to be the Soldier's kid too. Just roll with it.) It's up to the mercenaries, the Soldier's former lover Scarlet Mann (Lori Alan), Aurum Mann (Silver's good[[GoodIsNotSoft (ish)]] brother), and Hale to stop Silver from destroying the universe, and prove once and for all [[ArsonMurderandJaywalking that Aurum has better hair]].]] [[MindScrew The story's crazy]], but Valve did get HideoKojima to work on the story.

* ''[[MagicTheGathering Magic: The Musical]]'' is an excellent example of AdaptationDistillation. The Invasion saga has been turned into an epic, visionary musical masterwork. The best part? Yawgmoth and Tsabo Tavoc singing ''[[SweeneyTodd A Little Elf]]''.

* While TelltaleGames has had a hit-and-miss history with episodic adventure games [[TheProblemWithLicensedGames based on licensed properties]], their game adaptation of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' (titled ''Adventures in Harmony'') is definitely a hit! Six episodes, each focusing on a member of the Mane Six, with all the charm and clever writing of the series at its best. I like how they managed to give each of the characters a unique trick (Pinkie's "Pinkie Sense", Rainbow Dash's speed, Twilight Sparkle's magic) without making it feel too gimmicky. Plus the puzzles and challenges are perfectly balanced to test kids and adults alike.

* When I first heard about [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Friendship is Magic (the live-action film)]], I was a bit skeptical, considering {{Hasbro}}'s track record with live-action. But the film pleasantly surprised me. It knew when to take itself seriously and when to make fun of itself, the plot was an excellent AdaptationDistillation of the show, the IDW comics, and the G1 cartoon, the casting was brilliant (CarrieFisher as Rarity, MilaKunis as Rainbow Dash, RebaMcEntire as Applejack, and JamesEarlJones as Tirek, as well as AndreaLibman and TaraStrong reprising their roles), and they actually made me give a damn about the human characters. Even better was having JossWhedon in the director's chair and JJAbrams as the producer!
