Paul Scheer sheds some light on The Room, lets us in on a secret in The Disaster Artist, and answers your questions. Plus, we explore the origins of midnight movies and take a look at IMDb's Top 10 Stars of 2017.
OZZY & DRIX, based on the breakout characters from the feature film "Osmosis Jones," is an animated inner-body, buddy-cop comedy which follows the adventures of white blood cell cop Ozzy and his partner, over-the-counter cold pill Drix, as they defend the City of Hector, the body of a 13-year-old boy. The second season of Ozzy & Drix amplifies their infectious humor with Ozzy's in-your-face antics and Drix's knowledgeable yet clueless wit as they continue to take on whatever comes their way, regardless of how small or simple a situation may appear in the outside world of Hector. Only they know what really happens "skin deep" and what it takes to always be on 24-hour alert, whether it be the sprouting of Hector's first whisker, a rowdy encounter with the Testosterone gang, an unexpected appendicitis attack or the long-awaited visit from Drix's Auntie Histamine. With their headquarters behind Hector's cornea, these partners have established their "private eye" agency... hoping to keep ... Written by

[Hector has eaten too much sugar and all the white blood cells, except The Mole are tired and Drix wants to know why, but The Mole refuses to answer]
Whoever found out about my secret adrenaline supply......
You have a secret adrenaline supply?
Who told you this? They will suffer!
You told me!
Oh, yes, well maybe I could let myself off with a warning...but NO! I must be punished! No one crosses The Mole, not even, The Mole!

Let that be a lesson to me!

I used to love watching mind-numbing cartoons when I was a kid. Now, at
the ripe old age of 25 I thought I had grown up a bit...apparently not.
Studying medicine is draining and I needed something in the evening to
relax to, so I decided to re-watch a number of cartoons from my youth.
I found all the episodes for Ozzy and Drix and was so full of nostalgia
that I could not resist myself.
Ozzy and Drix takes place in the city of Hector, a teenage human being
who literally sets the stage for this show. Ozzy (aka Osmosis Jones) is
a white blood cell with an attitude like Will Smith in Bad Boys, whilst
Drix (aka Drixenol) is a multi-faceted pill who is also somewhat nerdy.
This pair are part of a policing unit in the city of Hector, who are
committed to fight invading pathogens. Both have their individual charm
and comedic value, which makes their pairing a great one.
Despite wanting to watch this show for its ability to let me go on
autopilot at the end of a long day, quite the opposite occurred. The
episodes themselves are are incredibly clever as they use medical
language (in a very basic sense) to form the basis of each storyline.
For example, representing the spleen as a literal vacuum destroyer of
pathogens was a stroke of genius to enable children to understand its
function. Other clever aspects would have flew over my head as a kid,
but they do make me chuckle now that I am studying medicine. Having a
dog allergen being called 'dander' being one such case.
In a world full of cartoons that rely on stupidity to be 'funny', Ozzy
and Drix do not and I really respect that. Aside from comedy, some
episodes have a truly strong message. "Where's the smoke" is a prime
example of this, whereby the basic concept of smoking and its
consequences is explained brilliantly. It is these qualities that sets
this show apart from most cartoons. However, by the same token, it may
have been its downfall. It was too clever for its own good and kids
quite simply did not get it. In a sea of cartoons where comedy that
relies on stupidity, current trends and violence reign supreme, Ozzy
and Drix could not complete.
All in all, Ozzy and Drix was a great show (let alone a cartoon). It's
a shame it did not continue , because I truly believe this cartoon
would have entertained children as well as benefited their minds.
