2010- The Year we make contact

In a sequel to ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’, Dr. Heywood Floyd played by Roy Scheider works with American and Soviet astronauts to find the ship that is stranded at Jupiter. And find out more on the mysteries in space after reconnecting HAL and connecting the ship to their spacecraft. But when a ghost of David Bowman played by Keir Dullea appears, he would tell them that something wonderful is going to happen.

So they’ve left the ship in the end, as they found out that Jupiter is being sucked by monoliths! As they left the ship behind, HAL, the ship and all of Jupiter is destroyed as an explosion happens! And all what’s left is a star in the sky the whole wide world sees. It showed about peace, time, and happiness as they would watch at this.

Roy Scheider, Keir Dullea, Gary Lockwood, and Douglas Rain and are very good actors as they are good astronauts. Stanley Kubrick and the author are maybe lunatics, but they want to believe in the future too.

2001- A Space Odyssey

In a movie I first saw a bit, there was this ape, a bone, the music, and the future on space! It was to talk about space travel. Before I know the title, there was all this as we know about time and space. The ‘2001’ version of “Planet of the Apes”, we all know not to mess up the space time continuum. That’s for what Mark Wahlberg did when he came home and there were apes.

But this movie talks about in space, you can get spirited away. And that’s what it is. Directed by Stanley Kubrick, and made by the novel, Arthur C. Clarke, this is a future about space that has happened in 1999 and 2001. But this is all make believe and never happened in 1999 and 2001. The actual years. It showed what was true in the movie. In the dawn of man, and in the movie, there was a monolith. A black rectangle. That makes a big difference on alien life. It made an loud noise when it was on the moon, as it was lead in a Jupiter mission.

When two crew members are awake, and three in cryogenics, they head for Jupiter as they have a talking computer. HAL-9000. They are played by Gary Lockwood and Keir Dullea. They are the two astronauts. A Canadian actor named Douglas Rain plays as HAL 9000! But when the computer malfunctioned, it killed all four. The one played by Keir Dullea disconnected him as he left the ship to investigate when it reached Jupiter.

The monolith in which made a portal, lead him spirited away as he’s transformed into a space baby. It was suppose to show the life for space and evolution. I wonder if you whack at it, the baby will cry? Correct? That was when a sequel was made in 1984. You’ll see!

Richard Scarry

When I was growing up back on Reid Avenue in Ottawa, I remember watching videotapes of “The Busy World of Richard Scarry”. Learning videos and videos from the hit TV series that used to be back then. I remember when they were all cute animals very well, back when the year 2000 came out and much media came out everywhere. And after watching a quick clip of an episode on TV, we decided to move on after we moved up into Kingsmere.

After one more episode on TV, I did start dreaming about that episode that they were stuck on a school bus in a snowstorm. And one person was trying to get them out of there. But with less strength and couldn’t get them outta there, Peter Sam from ‘Thomas the Tank Engine’ would help that person and both would save the day. But after getting them out, Peter Sam would realize that he lost his funnel! Broke off because of an icicle. He’d be happy again as they gave him his special funnel. And he’d be chugging all day in Busytown.

I’ve had a lot of dreaming of that and thought about Richard Scarry’s work. Even when I think about it when I watched “Bear In the Big Blue House”. Those animals and friends that I ever had back then, are the ones I will remember as TV friends.

Thank you guys, and Richard Scarry!

The Little Engine That Could- 1991

In 2011, when the most famous children’s story came out on DVD, it was the story by Watty Piper. “The Little Engine That Could”. But I never liked that version. The version I watched when I was starting to know was a 1991 version of ‘The Little Engine That Could’. I remember it when I used to live on Reid Avenue in Ottawa.

It was the mostly like the book I read, as the classic blue engine was like the one in the book! The one in the 2011 version was like one of the talking trains in “Chuggington”.

Even when I first loved trains, I still remembered much media in the past that I watched while growing up. Even when I show things like this today. And so on, I think a version like this, would be more specific to anyone that understands the story.

And the song, “Nothing Can Stop Us Now” was a good song. On YouTube, people would make a Thomas the Tank Engine parody of it, the whole thing. And if they make a video movie special on YouTube such as “The Eds Adventures of The Lorax”, they would have the Eds, Little Bear, Tillie and the whole train of it, some pals from Thomas the Tank Engine, and maybe some Pokémon and the colonists from ‘Pocahontas’!

This half an hour movie is classic like the story, but more better than the 2011 version. But it was cool on the voices. Patrick Warburton was a caboose, Whoopi Goldberg as a tower, and Jamie Lee Curtis as a clown.

Galidor

This was a TV show I remembered that was good, and maybe a friend of mine named Erik remembers it too. It even had Lego toys on the figures! I remembered when I had one. Even my neighbors have pieces of those up in Gatineau.

‘Galidor’ was a TV show about a boy, and a girl that have this device and a machine that transports them into outer dimensions. They made funny faces in the first episode! In the dimensions, they have to stop the universe before a ugly looking alien takes it over. With the help of a robot, a big toad, and a blue yeti dude, they try to save all this.

But that’s not all, the boy can have the ability to shift into parts of his body. Like robotic arms, plane wings, and more! This was a good show, but now I saw what has happened to him at the end. Don’t want to spoil it, but was a little different.

ReBoot- a TV show

This TV show didn’t make any sense in some episodes as there was the finale of it finally. It originally happened on YTV, and was last seen on Teletoon Retro. Finally, now its gone for sure.

It was a digital world about network warriors that want to protect the world from forces of evil that want to wreck up networks. There were three warriors, one which a child, and a big red dog. And to program themselves with abilities, they would press a reboot button on their uniforms as they are dressed up.

In the first season, and maybe the second was good, but in the third the child becomes a renegade as he tries to find his friends again. In the final episode, that wraps it up as I don’t want to see it again for good! And for a report on that, “E—“.

Flat!- A TV Show

This TV show I watched myself only lasted for a few weeks on YTV. It made a bit of sense but had no word for what has ever happened in the final episode. It was about being flat as paper.

When a kid came home and brought many magazines, he was transported in those magazines as he was flat like paper and how they did a magazine type cartoon. When the boy ran into a girl, she could help him. And they did. Throughout some episodes, they would find a portal that takes the boy back home. So far, there were only a few.

Each episode would begin in a magazine, when a portal opens as the boy and girl would fall in. And it would end as they enter another portal to the next and hopefully last one.

When there was nothing that TV show can do, that was cancelled from YTV for good. Hopefully, the boy found his way back home as the girl form the magazines decided to stay in the real world or back in the magazine world.

In the future, YTV or Teletoon would both have the last episode for a TV finale for the end of that.

Beast Wars: Transformers

Long ago, when we lived on Reid Avenue and Sherwood Drive in Ottawa, we loved one show that we liked since we moved on 226 Sherwood Drive. Before we watched anime tv shows like “Transformers: Energon” and “Transformers: Cybertron”, there was out first tv show of “Transformers”. “Beast Wars: Transformers”. It was when the Autobots and Decepticons after crash landing on a uncharitable planet, they had to be in disguise as beasts. Such as bugs, dinosaurs, regular ones in our present, and much more.

They’ve been there for years as we had no word for what has ever happened to them. The show was cancelled when they were just showing anime in 2000. I did figure out for what has happened to them now. After the Decepticons were destroyed, the Autobots have repaired their ship as they held Megatron their prisoner. They went back to Earth as one bug robot was left behind! They say he is happy there, as he quit. No longer seen.

I think this show we’ve ever watched was the best. Great childhood memories.

Action Man- 2000

Ever since me and my brothers found out about the Max Steel figure we found, there was another TV show we watched when we were very young related to Max Steel.

Like Max Steel, this guy was the greatest hero of them all. Action Man. An adrenaline hero of action and daredevils as he faces dangerous villains that want to control anything and take over the world. He can dodge arrows, think of best ideas to save the day, and goes “Rev it up!”.

He does have a few weaknesses about visions. But he needs to face them unless he is capable on doing it. He is like Max Steel. But both heroes we trusted on are both greatest heroes. We even own toys when we were young. I liked when he had a parachute.

Good memories, for all three. Me and my brothers.

Max Steel- 2000

A few years ago, before my brothers became popular on models like Zoolander, they won a prize at a party for being the best popular bros. even in high school I think. It was a golden figure. They think it was another boy doll on those Barbie’s, but when I realize a wrist watch on it, me and my bros. were surprised to see what it was. It was a Max Steel figure!

Long ago, when me and my brothers were very young, we watched a hit TV show in 2000 and had popular toys about it. Max Steel. About a spy, an action man, and a hero who’s always charged up on electricity and computers. He even says the words, “Going Turbo!” when he fights. A friend of his who’s the brains in that TV show watched a hit movie clip on ‘Ghostbusters’ before I watched the two movies.

With the help of his team, he would save the world because of man villains including one that has the face of a Terminator!

“Great show. Hell over for a third straight year”. Charlton Heston would say that in ‘The Omega Man’ for a hit TV show. But now things have changed, they made a reboot and I decided not to watch that type of version. This version here is way more better and classic than that. Childhood memories.
