A spin-off TV series meant to bridge the gaps between the films Tron and Tron Legacy, Tron Uprising is an intelligent and masterfully crafted cartoon which explores many complex themes; the rule of government, insurrection, xenophobia, existentialism, ethical and moral quandaries. All this while still being an action-packed show with plenty of appeal to audiences young and old. Unfortunately cancelled before it was able to finish out the season what we are left with is an incomplete product that is nonetheless essential viewing for sheer entertainment value and to wonder at what more could have been achieved.

THE SHORT VERSION


In this land, the man with rocket punch is king.

We love you Virtual Jeff Bridges

Anyhow we get down to a bit of banter about this year's Oscar shorts and their various merits and how all that muss turned out. We also have a bit of discussion thrown in about the feature length animations, a few of which you may expect to hear about in more detail on a future podcast, so watch this space!
