    Wouldn't have expected you to like Interstella 5555 that much Stan. But I mean, Discovery set to cool anime sci-fi, what's not to like?

    Yeah, the story is nothing to write home about, but the art direction is good and the soundtrack is amazing. That's also the reason why I watched, and enjoyed to a minor extent, Tron: Legacy, despite hating the first Tron. Daft Punk are just great; I'm not much of a music lover and they're one of the very few artists that I bothered to listen to their whole discography. It's really a shame they split up.

    My favorite comedy ever! Interesting to see Sean Baker say: "Not my cup of tea however..."
