    Shame to see no comment here again. It is difficult I guess though, when for the third time in a while the series has been so solid that it seems just to do its job well. That make sit hard for you to have a lot to say though, which I understand.

    Really, this series needs applauded because it is animated and where it succeeds, rather than it being wished for that it was live action. Sad when creative expression is so misunderstood.

    When nobody comments, I tend to default to assuming I've either bored people, scared them away or said something so blatantly obvious it's not even worth the time responding to, let alone the time it took me to write the piece in the first place.

    Either way I appreciate you jumping in regardless! And once again, we of course agree IRT to the creative merit of TAS.

    Yes I can understand – you are putting in a lot of time, commitment and passion into this project. Hopefully it has not been too demoralising of late.

    I have been madly reading away to catch up with your postings so I can comment live. Have had a big work (then holiday) schedule that put a big hole in my reading time. Almost there now…

    And gosh yes TAS is SUCH a disregarded product. Shame.

    What's been more demoralizing is the stuff I've had to write about, actually. Thankfully I won't be with IDW for much longer.

    Either way, glad you can catch up and happy to see you in the thread again!

    Ah well good to hear that! Not familiar with the IDW stuff myself but look forwards to discovering. Aye, good to catch up with your entries and see you in the comments!
