He makes a bargain to be the scout for the being, to search for uninhabited planets, in return for for Zenn-La's survival.

Not sure what the hoopla is.
6 May 2008 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

I'm not sure what people see in this cartoon. I've seen only bits and pieces of it but nothing there to make me want to watch any further. The animation is substandard and the voice work is...odd. The lead character's voice is this weepy, touch-feely sort of deal and Thanos sounds like a Blue Meanie.

Going by what little I've seen, the show seems to depend quite a bit on exposition. In the episode I saw, the Silver Surfer had seemingly interminable internal monologue.

I dunno, it could be I've been spoiled by Bruce Timm, but somehow I don't think so.
