  1. I consider myself very lucky to have been a child at the time.

    1. I was a teenager, but yes, exactly.

  2. Point 1) If this is the sort of thing we're going to see in Near Apocalypse, then I await it with baited breath.

    Point 2) I still have not seen all of Gargoyles. Between a mother who thought anything not on PBS was evil, and a lack of complete DVD release I never got the chance.

    1. Some of these things are likely to be covered over the course of it, yes...
