Guilty Pleasures
14 February 2000 | by See all my reviews

OK, I know I'm 22 years old and supposed to be part of the counter-culture that ignores most fads targeted at 8-year olds. But this show rocks! I watched it because of the simple fact there was nothing else on that afternoon, and now I've been swept up in the continuing adventures of Ash, Pikachu, Misty, and token grown-up (that would be Brock or Tracey). And Team Rocket! You gotta love those guys. They try so hard to be evil, but it's not really in there hearts. This show is a lot better than people give it credit for. Check it out (if your over 8 and/or don't have kids).
