Comic book writer (and former Real World cast member) Judd Winick has created a new show on Cartoon Network called The Life & Times of Juniper Lee. Plot-wise, it’s basically a rehash of every magical girl show from Sailor Moon to Buffy the Vampire Slayer (young girl is the chosen protector of the world from evil) but the character design and the animation is attractive and it’s smart (I can’t think of another children’s program that would make a reference to Flowers of Algernon). Mostly, though, at this point, it just has potential. Let’s hope it can live up to it.
By the way, if this site vanishes for a little while, it’s because I didn’t get a chance to renew my domain registration in time. It probably won’t come to that, but there might be some downtime.
