So tonight marked a few firsts for me. For starters, it was my first time attending a moving screening. It also was the first time I realized that the building I had driven past for 10 years in the South Park area of Charlotte was actually the Regal Cinemas at Phillips Place. Finally, it was the first time in months that me and the beautiful girlfriend had met up immediately following work for a pseudo date night. Oh yeah...and it was the night of the Purge - the one night of the year where laws don't matter.

Bandwagon Fan's Day (Basketball)
Wednesday, June 15, 2016
Last week's tragedies in the news were not missed by Steve and J. Just as we were trying to tastefully address one another would happen, then another. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Sarah Grimmie, Orlando's Pulse Nightclub victims, and the miscarriage of justice in the Brock Turner sentencing. Our thoughts and prayers are also with you, our readers, through whatever difficult circumstance you may be going through.

VOLTRON Week Day 6: Enemies
Today's the day! Today is June 10 - the day Voltron: Legendary Defender is available for streaming on Netflix! So Voltron Week is done, no? No! Who the heck is Voltron fighting? And why is he fighting them? Grab a seat, sit down, and relax before you jump over to Netflix so you'll be in the know for Legendary Defender!
Virtually no insight is given as to why Planet Arus and Planet Doom are at odds so it can only be assumed that their kings, King Alfor (deceased) and King Zarkon, respectively, didn't respect each other. So this beef has been hyped Good vs Evil proportions to give us fodder for one of the most iconic cartoons of the 80's.
Just as with Voltron's weapons, I'm going of the memory of the episodes that I actually saw but check out Voltron Central for the full rundown of enemies in the Far Universe.

VOLTRON Week Day 4: Robot
So now that we have established the pilots, what the heck are they flying? Lions. They're flying mechanical lions. And what do flying mechanical lions assemble? A giant humanoid super robot. Perfectly legit, right? Well, that's the advantage of the "super robot" sub-genre of anime - the physics doesn't have to make sense nor be explained so just go with it. Like cosmic inflation of the Big Bang theory violating the speed of light - just go with it.

VOLTRON Week Day 1: Netflix Preview
Welcome to Voltron Week on Steve and J TV! Declared so because Voltron is the #2 reason why being an 80s baby is the bees-knees (#1 is Candy Cigarettes, if you're wondering). This Friday, June 10, all the 2000 and 2010 babies will rediscover greatness so I'm letting my inner child out his corner to nerd all week about the OG Defender of the Universe.
