I wanted to be the first person to belly ache and whine on my message boards and blogs about how Toranado Shanks sucks. :(

I understand that Harry Goz is dead and I think it's really cool that his son Michael is doing the voice for Tornado, but fuck, Murphy was my favorite character and I've have been happier if they'd just gotten a good voice actor who sounded kind of like Harry.

Oh well, maybe he'll grow on me. But for now, I WHINE AND BITCH AND BELLY ACHE. :(

I think it would have been funnier if they got the son of Murphy to do Sealab, but I'm willing to give Tornado a shot. He's annoying, sure, but he has that quality that you'll enjoy it if he's hurt really badly and who knows what road they'll take him down.

It's worth a shot, at least. I thought it sucked when British Mom came on the Brak Show, but she had her moments. Let's see where Tornado takes us. And be grateful it's not that Bristow fuckwad.

That, and remember....Murphy isn't dead. He's just leading the good troops in the Spice War. Hopefuully, he will return.

ADD: Proto, which anime are you watching?

Sealab should have been cancelled about a year ago. The first season was brilliant, but the second and third seasons are crap.

I don't know, it went through a really weak period but I think the recent batch of episodes have really been back to true form. I am perfectly willing to give Tornado Shanks a chance, and I think that in time he'll grow on me. Murphy is a tough act to follow, so it's only natural there'd be some resentment at first. I REALLY hope they drop the whole football schtick though. That'll get old real fast.

I guess with Murphy gone (I really don't think they're going to bring him back) my favorite character is now Stormy.
