Springing forth from SCTV and Saturday Night Live comes this cartoon adaptation of the bizarre and ever upbeat character made famous by Martin Short. What it lacks in good animation (courtesy of Hanna Barbera) it makes up for in excellent writing and performances from Short himself and many of his colleagues from the world of comedy, along with a most welcome habit of veering off into strange and frequently hilarious territory. It is quite good, I mean how can you say it's not?

Arriving a little later than anticipated due to some technical hiccups (apologies for the sound quality too) we explore this 2011 adaptation of the comic series by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely. As far as adaptations go this one does the job but never quite reaches for the same greatness as it's print forebear, with competent visuals overall and a little flatness in the voice performances. Also: will our predictions about Man Of Steel come to fruition? Listen and find out!

THE SHORT VERSION

A hot date

A couple of jerks
