TV shows new and old came up in conversation this morning. "True Blood" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm" generated strong reactions, and comics writers seem to be looking forward to Syfy's "Alphas," which premieres tonight and apparently employs Marc Bernardin on its writing staff (always a good reason to check anything out), according to Neil Kleid.
Gabriel Hardman, meanwhile, critiqued Marvel's old Iron Man animated series—though he was more excited about Stan Lee's backdrop during the show's intro than he was about the in-story action. Find out why in our list of retweets below. It's there alongside some suggestions for revamped movie titles that use "In My Pants" as a secret ingredient.
I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter Report for July 11, 2011.
@gabrielhardman Yeesh, this 90's Iron Man cartoon is bad though. But I did remember right, Stan Lee has a poster I drew in 1994 behind him in the intro.
