El Chapulin Colorado (The Crimson Grasshopper)

Chespirito was a great comedian with a very special way to connect to children. My favorite of his many characters was El Chapulín Colorado. But his most famous and well-known was El Chavo Del Ocho.

From all the way back to the 70s, his comedy show TV re-runs can still be seen in all over Latin America and the US.

I’m really hoping the box set gets lots of special features and commentaries. I have waited for this box set since the VHS days. 😛

Although the darker Batman, and Batman: The Animated Series are my favorite versions, the ’66 Batman TV Series was my introduction to Batman, and it hold a special place for me for been the first.

Also, I’ve been checking out the Batman ’66 comics, which they actually captures what the essence of the series was all about. :mrgreen:

It is great to see that it starting to have great reviews around the web. 😀

The Six-Million Dollar Man

I just got The Six-Million Dollar Man: The Complete Series DVD Collection from Time-Life. 😎

This is awesome, and makes me really nostalgic. This is the very first TV series I remember growing up. I also remember playing with the Colonel Steve Austin action figure that my parents gave me for Christmas. 😎

The down side of this DVD collection is the whopping $240.00 dollars (plus shipping) price tag. 😯 But I couldn’t resist and took the plunge for geek and nostalgic reasons, making the so call five easy payments. Plus… I rationalize it by thinking I need to build more credit. 😛 😉

Here is a good review of The Six-Million Dollar Man DVD set.
