One brilliant aspect from the 1960’s STAR TREK sci-fi television show is 1st Officer and Science Officer of the Starship S.S. Enterprise, MR. SPOCK. Spock is a superior, logical-thinking alien genius, and Captain Kirk’s right-hand man, who forces humans to take a look at their flawed ideologies. STAR TREK, set in the Milky Way galaxy during the 2260s, was way beyond it’s time…literally. Check out one of my favorite clips from the show.

The BOONDOCKS & Adult Swim have put us all through an emotional roller coaster with the slow release of Season 4. We’ve waited 4 years to see a new episode of one of the most prolific animated TV series of our generation. Through satiric and paradoxical storytelling, the BOONDOCKS, a show based on the comic strip created by AARON MCGRUDER, is a mirror of American and urban society with all of its perversions. The programming and subject matter have been controversial, to say the least, but the BOONDOCK’S fanbase is massive because the content is brutally honest.
