OK, we've got some action-packed excitement coming up this week and next week in the BRBTV News Blog ... We're going to veer off-course just a bit this week, away from our core BRBTV shows but still well within the realm of good-ole classic television, as we bring you a review of the movie pilot for the brand-new animated TV series "Speed Racer: The Next Generation," releasing this month to coincide with the live-action "Speed Racer" film.
Then, this Friday and all of next week, we'll give you great, solid coverage -- for the third year in a row -- of the Motor City Comic Con in Novi, Michigan. You'll see photos of special guests and all kinds of fun tidbits (and, of course, our traditional BRBTV Most Congenial in Show Award for one celebrity -- who knows who it will be this year!!!!).
So stay tuned for lotso fun! For today, we'll whet your appetite for our "Speed Racer" DVD review tomorrow with a video ...
The original "Speed Racer" first hit the small screen in 1967 and focused on a teenager who aspired to be the world's best race-car champion with the help of his friends, family and his father's high-tech race-car, the Mach 5. Now, in "The Next Generation," his son Speed unlocks the mystery of his dad's disappearance after entering the elite Racing Academy. And the car this time around is the Mach 6.
