Got tagged by my friend
, so let's see what's in store for me this time........
1) What's a show that I love that everyone else hates?
Sonic X. Seriously folks, don't you remember the glory days of everybody's favorite hedgehog? Give the show at least some credit, it was fun stuff!
I mean it isn't like it was the 2006 game........
2) What's a show that I love that no one else remembers?
Mobile Suit Gundam Wing.
You'll probably remember this show if you're a lifelong fan of Toonami, it's what made Gundam famous in America. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it, especially if you're a fan of mecha anime and interstellar warfare.
3) What's a movie I love that everybody else hates?
Hook: I know not everybody hates this movie, but for such a successful film, it's never gotten enough love. Come on folks, it's Robin Williams as Peter Pan and Dustin Hoffman as Captain Hook! You can't possibly go wrong with that, and if you haven't seen it, check it out and you'll see what I mean.
By the way, did you folks know that Dante Basco, aka Prince Zuko co-starred in this movie?
(NOTE: For those who might've expected to see Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, it's NOT a bad movie! It's flawed, yes........but it absolutely is not a bad movie. Just wanted to clear the air on that one.)
4) What's a movie I love that no one else remembers?
Dick Tracy: Another one that doesn't get enough love. It's Dick Tracy as the badass cop in the banana-colored trenchcoat, Al Pacino as a big time mob boss, and Madonna. Totally a must-see if you're a comic book lover.
A pox on the Tribune Company for the ongoing film rights quarrel that killed all hopes for a sequel!
(NOTE: Special mention to Treasure Planet and Atlantis: The Lost Empire, two Disney films that got massively underrated upon release)
5) What's a video game that I love that everyone else hates?
Driver 2. Lots of people didn't care for that one, but hey, if I get a game where I get to joyride and smash every car in sight against the backdrop of a simple but tense police thriller story, then as far as I'm concerned I'm golden.
Driv3r and Driver: San Francisco on the other hand............
6) What's a video game I love that no one else remembers?
Star Wars X-Wing: One of the absolute best space combat simulators EVER!
Its sequel TIE Fighter is all the better.
Wing Commander III: Again, one of the best space simulators of all time.
And it also has Luke Skywalker as the hero. Need I say more?
Descent: Chasing robots through dimly-lit mining shafts that could go boom at any time in your starfighter makes for a spooky game. Oh yeah, when's the sequel coming?
7) Who's the biggest animated crush I've ever had?
Oh well, now this one I'm sure is obvious.......
Katara, from Avatar: The Last Airbender. Everything you could want from a strong leading lady in any series.
Special mention goes to Asami Sato from The Legend of Korra, who might be a close second.........
8) Favorite canon pairing?
Kataang, of course.
9) Favorite crack pairing?
Does Korrasami count?
10) Favorite meme?
No, it's NOT Harlem Shake or Rick'Rolled! Frankly, those memes need to be about 20% cooler.

I look forward to reading your feedback if you do.
(P.S.: If any of these questions sound overused or cliched, give me a break, I'm not clever enough to come up with better ones
