Powerpuff Girls #10

Powerpuff Girls #10Things get a bit groovy in the conclusion of the two-part arc as the Boogie Man transforms Bubbles, Blossom, and Buttecup along with the Rowdyruff Boys into 70s, free love, disco-lovin’ fools. Thankfully Buttercup’s natural hatred of disco allows her to break the spell and the two groups to agree to team-up to take down the Boogie Man. Oh course that’s where the giant robots come in. That’s right, giant robots!

Realizing he stands a chance at defeat, the Boogie Man calls on Klin-Ton to save the day. Stepping up to fight on the side of the Powerpuff Girls and Rowdyruff Boys, the teen pop band 3D (who are actually an alien glam rock band) together form the Ironium Viking for a battle of giant robots pitting the power of disco versus that of rock and roll.

Whether that made any sense to you at all, Powerpuff Girls #10 is the kind of insanity you don’t want to miss. It’s even got a cameo from Mojo Jojo who is foiled yet again. Worth a look.

Rookie Blue - Heart Breakers, Money Makers

Sent out along with the other local divisions to seize illegally-bought goods from criminals awaiting trial or already in prison, Andy (Missy Peregrym) and her new rookie Duncan (Matthew Owen Murray) run into a little trouble with a entrepreneur (Benjamin Ayres) who had been running illegal poker games out of his whom when the man decides to punch Duncan and run rather than turn over the items on the list. With the help of Nick (Peter Mooney) and Swarek (Ben Bass) the pair manage not only to track the man down but untangle the drama involving his wife and recover thousands in cash. Duncan does get punched in the face and punk out of a volunteer assignment later in the episode, but stills shows some improvement on the job.
