Those Master Ninja's are much sought after...  I love Sinbad!  All those Russo-finnish ones.  A strong set if you ask me.    Getting ready to order thing while it's only $29.99 at amazon. Gee, does Trace really say the show became better because Joel left?  Ouch!  I'm a fan of both. Each had strengths.  But..not to turn it into a Joel Vs Mike.  Joike all the way!  Heh heh!

No, Trace said that the tone during the first half of Season Five (Joel's last shows) made for a better show.

I guess I've always been partial to the sort of "local" feel of the early host bits.  I love it all K-10...  But the reading of the letters and even the taking of phone calls in the KTMA seasons was a really cool idea and made it all more personal I thought.  But I guess as artists I can see exactly what he's talking about.


Looking forward to seeing all this.

There's an all-Gamera set (5-discs) scheduled for release in August. Wow, thought we'd never see those released....

Turns out Sandy Frank wasn't all that insulted by the skewering he got on the show.  Perhaps Time of the Apes and others aren't far away.

Trace and Joel still work together on Cinematic Titanic.   I did an interview with Jim Mallon at the time, when Joel was about to leave the show.   And the gut feeling was that Jim and Joel were at a real impasse as to which direction the show should go; Joel wanted things to stay along the same lines, Jim wanted different options on movies and potential other changes.  In the end Joel decided to leave to prevent fights from dividing the group.   He still owns part of the rights, so it didn't kill him ;)  I admit, I love the Joel era.
