Jackie Chan Adventures

Today I started watching this series over. I first watched it back when it was on television.

While watching the first episode, I was reminded of many things.

These two lines brought back memories of the cartoon: "Bad day bad day bad day..." and "One more thing!"

Some tidbits I didn't remember and enjoyed seeing consisted of the following:
1) Seeing Jackie Chan appear throughout the opening credits.
2) "I have a niece?"
3) "Shield not important!"

On a different note, I totally didn't remember the ending credit song. I thought maybe it was only for the pilot episode. It sounded cheesy.

Of course, knowing how most of the story plans out ruined some of the excitement. With that being said, I still enjoyed watching the action and going through the entire story. I look forward to watching the rest of this series, because I never finished it back when it aired on television (I don't remember why not). I'm pretty sure I watched the first couple seasons.

20101205 Comment:
Apparently the ending credit song is used for all of season 1. But then in other seasons the ending credit song is the same as the title song. Also, while I had remembered the bulk of season 1, I didn't remember many details, so it was fun to watch the first season over. I look forward to watching the other seasons as well.

On a different note, I just read that in terms of DVD release, only season one has been released in its entirety. But it was starting October 2010 that the entire series was made available on Netflix Instant. Awesome.

I was going through and transferring my television blog posts today. When I got to Jackie Chan Adventures, I went to check if any sites were streaming it. Apparently Sony has a streaming platform called Sparkle where Seasons 3 and 4 of Jackie Chan Adventures are available to watch (with ads).

"Bad move bad move bad move."
Asked if Jackie has a pet. He basically says he's too busy to have a pet.
20101205 ~09:30PM-~09:50PM

Haha, "How much is that doggie in the windmill."
Interesting... (knowing later storyline) it's to be noted that Jackie told Tohru in this episode he should consider changing sides.
"Time to walk the dog."
Jackie tells us that Uncle's sign is the dog.

"I am told Section 13 serves donuts on Thursday."

In unison the agents say: "Magic must defeat magic."
Jade blows up Shendu with dragon.
So Uncle explains by destroying Shendu, there will be a new evil.
