After the cooling off period...

I had intended to go into a scathing rant about how that little bastard Eric Gellar at is such a whiny-bitch in his reviews of the previous night's episodes of The Clone Wars, but I've mellowed since I first thought of the idea.

I'm not going to get all upset about him not realizing that this latest episode ("Evil Plans") was targeted more for kids than teenagers like himself.

I'm not going to chastise him about "Now that most of my complaining is over, I'm going to complain some more" sentences that frequently appear in his reviews.

I'm not going to complain about his whining about "Is this really The Clone Wars?" every other episode when he should keep in mind that, One: it's a friggin' cartoon! and Two: ... well, I can't remember what Two was, but I'm sure it was meaningful.

I won't point out that I'm pretty envious by how many words he can put out in under 12 hours when most of that (I assume) should be taken up by sleep. Although he can get mindlessly wordy and maybe a little repetitive.

I won't point out that his reviews are occasionally flawed by him not reading the full episode guide or watching Dave Filoni's commentary when it is posted at 9:30pm Pacific time. If that's too late for him, he should be able to access it by the time he wakes up to post his review Saturday morning.

No, I'm not going to complain about another fanboy being disappointed in how his favorite bounty hunter's actions during "the Hutt conference to be realistic at all." I didn't realize Eric knew the greedy bad-guy so well. Did he create him? Hell, the way TCW has been jumping around in its time-line, this may be the first time we've ever seen Bane! (Which isn't exactly true, but I'm sure you get what I'm saying.)

I'm not going to ask, "Or what?" when he ends his review with, "To say that TCW Season 3 needs to pick up the pace very soon is an understatement." What? Would Cartoon Network cancel it? Will people stopping watching it? Will Eric stop reviewing it? (We can only hope the latter.)

Nope, no complaining from me. No, sir. I'm a rational person, my barking over this is just plain silly and meaningless. Nope, I'm not going to say a word.
