Better than the source material!
The Justice League TV series (in both its original and "Unlimited" iterations) is one of those rare adaptations that outperforms its source material. By concentrating equally on what makes the League an interesting concept and on the unique personalities of the individual members, this show has all the majesty, adventure, whimsy, imagination, drama, and humor that you could possibly ask for in escapist entertainment. A joy for kids and adults alike, the Justice League/Justice League Unlimited series was, during its four seasons, consistently better than the material being put out by DC Comics at the time. Equal parts Silver Age science fiction and modern superhero fare, Justice League offers a potent distillation of everything fun and inspirational about superhero comic books, components often woefully lacking from the lion's share of the comics that readers can find on shelves today. The only real flaw in these DVD releases is that the special features on these seasons, while not exactly skimpy, are far from expansive. When buying the Justice League/Justice League Unlimited DVDs, understand that the main attraction is the series itself, and don't expect much in the way of extras other than commentary on a few select episodes and a brief featurette or two.

Surprisingly good!
Though I am not especially fond of the modern incarnation of D&D (certain thematic and design flaws continue to haunt this game even after 30 years), I found myself pleasantly surprised with D20 modern. Although its mechanics are virtually the same as those used in D&D (Editions 3.0 and 3.5, anyway...I've yet to experience 4.0 for myself), D20 Modern makes better use of the character class concept than any of its predecessors. In D20 Modern, flexibility is the key: multi-classing and customization are easy as you please, allowing players to create the type of characters they actually want to play, as opposed to being forced to "settle" on a character class that doesn't necessarily capture what the player was hoping to create. D20 Modern also proceeds from the very outset with the idea that the rules must work in multiple campaign settings, some with vastly differing design theories, and the book even includes a few abbreviated campaign settings to illustrate this flexibility. In addition, all the bells and whistles of fantasty and sci-fi gaming are touched upon herein: magic, psionics, firepower, high-tech gadgets...what a terrific toybox! The organization of the core rulebook is a trifle bewildering at times, but D20 Modern is a terrific gaming engine with a solid design stance. You'll probably want to pick up the Menace Manual supplement to populate your game with well-balanced foes, but for the most part, the D20 Modern book is surprisingly complete and highly functional.

Brilliant!
Buffy Lives! The so-called "Eighth Season" of television's Buffy the Vampire Slayer continues in this second collection of the monthly ongoing comic book. Penned by comics veteran Brian K. Vaughan and "produced" by Buffy creator Joss Whedon, this volume continues the adventures of our heroine and her many friends and compatriots in style, with special focus on Faith, the Slayer-turned-villain-turned-heroine first introduced in the show's third season. Buffy fans will not be disappointed; first-time visitors to the Buffyverse, however, will be more than a little bewildered, as the series is rich in continuity and ongoing character threads.
