The Ramblings of a Damaged Mind
Tonight's special guest star...

Tonight's Justice League featured them fighting an extra-dimensional terror - The Old Ones. The lead creature was called Ichthultu - and voiced by Rob Zombie. :-)

It was highly entertaining. Aside from the Wonder Woman butt shots, we had Solomon Grundy as a hero with some fun lines. The writers have really started to have fun with the characters, it has turned into a great show.
"Hera, give me strength!" "Do you have to say that all the time?!"
"Standard interogation technique, I was 'Bad Cop'." "You're always bad cop." "Why play against type?"
"Nice use of space."
"Grundy volunteered." "I'm not sure he's competant to volunteer."
"Excuse me, Hawkgirl smash."
"Grundy crush pimple man!"
"Nothing to say. I've got a gesture for you, but my hands are tied."
And a pretty serious ending. You don't see many shows willing to feature faith as a central theme, especially when the faith(s) in question aren't Judeo-Christian. I never would have guess that was Mark Hamill voicing Grundy.

Holy Shit!!!

I can barely contain my amazement. i am so bummed i was at work..no, actually I'm pissed. because i didn't even know it was going to be on. See there...that wasn't even a sentance.

Anyway, i don't mind telling you that Rob Zombie is the only celebrity I have ever had freaky sex dreams about.

I met Rob Zombie, briefly, at an Anime Expo some years back. He was with Glen Danzig.

Anyway, Cartoon Network tends to repeat Justice League a lot, so I'm sure it'll be on again. The episode is named 'The Terror Beyond'.

Unfortunately I've already deleted it off my TiVo or I could make a copy.

The captions had "Ixthulu".

Mark Hamill AND Rob Zombie?! Damn didn't even notice that when I watched it.

The other spelling was how it was in the credits.

Yeah, I didn't notice until the credits about the voice actors.

Yeah, that WAS an interesting show . . .

Mark Hamill was Solomon Grundy?!

According to the credits, yep.

Mark Hamill has turned into quite a versatile voice actor. I was surprised way back when he was cast as The Joker for the Batman animated series, because the voice seemed so unlike his own. And he's done a number of voice roles since.

That man is versatile. Voice acting, writing a comic book, penning (I think) a novel somewhere along the line, and next year he's got a movie coming which he directed--about comics, IIRC.

*shakes head*

I am in awe of people like him.

I read this before watching the episode, and the amusing thing was they had a variant on the Darth Vader theme as the background music.

The show is fun in any case, but when you notice these kinds of things it becomes clear that this is art.
