Unleash the Fanboy: "Sonic the Hedgehog first appeared on the SEGA Genesis over 20 years ago and has remained one of the most popular video game characters and franchises. His popularity has waned in recent years, but for all intents and purposes he’s still right up there next to Super Mario. Some series are lucky enough to get a TV show, and ultra lucky to get more than one. Sonic may have the most. There’s the classic show and Adventures, plus the rather strange Underground. (A song every episode.) Sonic X is arguably the most popular, because it adapted most of the games. While obviously lacking in many areas, it was still a decent show many people have fond memories of. (If only they had gotten rid of Chris.) Upon its unveiling, SONIC BOOM received a very mixed response. On one hand it was going to be awesome to see the hedgehog on the small screen once again after so many years. On the other hand, the new designs were pretty awful and it was said the show would be a comedy and episodic. So, now that it’s aired, do we have a solid installment or another Pac Man and the Ghostly Adventures? The review will be divided into two parts since there are two episodes in the 30 minute slot."
