I recently started watching a show created by the people who made Bob’s Burgers called Central Park. The show is about a family that lives in Central Park in New York and The Dad works for the park. So far it’s been really charming and it has amazing musical numbers. It’s really fun to watch. The characters are charming as well. One of the characters is voiced by the guy who did the voice of Olaf from Frozen which was a great surprise for me. If you like Bob’s Burgers and quirky humor you’re going to love Central Park.
The Goldbergs: Erica Goldberg
The Goldbergs is a funny show about a Jewish family in Pennsylvania. The premise is that each episode is based off of the life of Adam Goldberg, the creator of the show, who had compiled a bunch of family videos, to show what it was like to grow up in the 1980s. At the end of each episode, we see some of the actual videos, and interviews of the real life Goldbergs, and it’s always amazing to see how spot on some of the depictions are. Even though it’s based off of parts of his life, it’s still fiction. My favorite character is Erica Goldberg.
In the show, Erica Goldberg, cast by Hayley Orrantia, is the older sister to Adam. She’s your typical bossy big sister, and also the popular kid in school. She also thinks that her musical talent, and singing abilities are going to help her make it big time. As the show progresses, and she gets older, she begins to act like she knows everything. In the end, she always comes through to stand up for her little brother Adam, and is often at odds with her other younger brother, and middle child, Barry.
I highly recommend you watch the show Goldbergs, and hopefully you enjoy Erica Goldberg as much as I do. It will be more fun if you watch from the beginning.
Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two (Review)
Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii. This game takes place shortly after the events of its prequel, Epic Mickey. Unlike Epic Mickey, this game features co-op action where player 1 plays as Mickey Mouse and player 2 plays as Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.
In this game, Mickey returns to Wasteland (a realm where forgotten toons reside) only to find it has become inert (due to the damage caused by the quake) as well as finding that the Mad Doctor has turned over a new leaf (which is in fact an act of deception for a much grander, evil scheme). As such, both Mickey and Oswald work together to save Wasteland and Stop the Mad Doctor. The game has two endings (the game’s ending as well as the fate of the Mad Doctor depends on your actions in the game).
The main protagonists in this game are Mickey Mouse, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Ortensia and Gus the Gremlin. The main antagonists in this game are the Mad Doctor and Prescott the Gremlin.
The multiple versions of Pete we see in this game are Big Bad Pete, Pete Pan (Adventureland version of Pete), Petetronic (Tomorrowland version of Pete) and Small Pete (It’s A Small World version of Pete).
In conclusion, I found this game to be both magically heartwarming and spiritually, wonderfully amazing. Truly, this is a one of a kind Disney game that has touched and forever will touch the hearts of children throughout the ages.
Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (Game Review)
Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring for the PlayStation 2 and the Xbox. Unlike other Lord of the Rings video games, this game’s storyline is entirely based on the first Lord of the Rings book.
The cast of playable characters in this game are Frodo Baggins (Hobbit)(Weapons: Dagger/Elven Blade-Sting/Stones/Mithril Shirt/The One Ring), Aragorn (Human)(Weapons: LongSword/Sword of Kings-Anduril the Flame of the West) and Gandalf (Wizard)(Weapons: Elven Blade-Glamdring the FoeHammer/Magic-Fire Blast, Chain Lightning and Heal).
The protagonists in this game are Samwise “Sam” Gamgee (Hobbit),
Meriadoc “Merry” Brandybuck (Hobbit),
Peregrin “Pippin” Took (Hobbit),
Lord Elrond (Elf),
Bilbo Baggins (Hobbit),
Lord Celeborn (Elf) and Lady Galadriel (Elf).
The antagonists in this game are The Nazgul “Ring-Wraiths”,
Old Man Willow (Tree),
The Watcher in the Water (Sea Monster),
The Balrog of Morgoth “Durin’s Bane”,
Uruk-Hai and the Fell Beasts.
In conclusion, I liked how they based this game on its novel counterpart instead of its movie counterpart. It was truly in fact an incredibly, ingenious/imaginative accomplishment on their part as well as an honorably, utmost praise to J. R. R. Tolkien himself.

Sonic Unleashed (Review)
Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review Sonic Unleashed for the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii. Unlike other Sonic the Hedgehog games, Sonic will have two forms consisting of his standard form during the daytime and his Werehog form during the nighttime.
In this game, Dr. Eggman unleashes an ancient evil known as Dark Gaia which in turn shatters the planet into seven pieces, transforms Sonic the Hedgehog into Sonic the Werehog and renders the seven Chaos Emeralds grey and powerless. In his Werehog form, Sonic’s speed is diminished and yet in turn gains both immense physical strength as well as stretchable limbs. Now Sonic must restore the seven Chaos Emeralds, fix the planet and defeat both Dr. Eggman and Dark Gaia to break the curse of the Werehog placed upon himself.
The nine locations you visit in this game are Apotos (based on Greek Mediterranean architecture-Greek island of Chora, Mykonos Greece/Greek city of Santorini),
Spagonia (based on western European architecture-Italian city of Siena),
Mazuri (based on Africa),
Holoska (based on Alaska),
Chun-nan (based on China’s architecture),
Shamar (based on a Middle Eastern desert-Petra, Jordan),
Empire City (based on New York City),
Adabat (based on Angkor, Maldivian, and Southeastern Asia),
Eggmanland and the Planet’s Core.
The cast of characters are Sonic the Hedgehog/Sonic the Werehog/Super Sonic,
Miles “Tails” Prower,
Dark Gaia and Chip/Light Gaia.
In conclusion, I found this game to showcase the eternal conflict between light and darkness that takes place in the world as well in each and every one of us. But as long as we all stay true to ourselves, the light in us will illuminate our lives and the darkness in us will be in turn suppressed forevermore.

Power Rangers: I’m Dreaming of a White Ranger (Review)
Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review a Power Ranger Christmas episode: I’m Dreaming of a White Ranger. This is the 16th episode in the 3rd season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers as well as the 2nd Power Rangers Christmas special.
The episode plot is described as follows: ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, and at the North Pole; Brainwashing children was Lord Zedd’s goal.
His inventions were stirring, all the plans have been made; So Rito and Goldar and the Tengas just played.
While Santa and his helpers are held at their shop, There’s a good chance that Christmas will just go kerplop.
Now the Rangers have been summoned to put a stop to this deed, But have they the power they’ll eventually need?
In short, the Power Rangers have to save Christmas without their powers due to a combination of the North Pole’s unique polarity and a cross-current of holiday magic.
In conclusion, I found this episode to showcase the Christmas spirit both magically and heroically.
