    ‘Noman’s Land’ Begins With Promise

    Watching the “Noman’s Land” premiere at Anime NYC, “Trigun Stampede” opens with a bang (a little dash of “Star Wars”). Most importantly, it gets the appeal of the series: the silliness of a seemingly inept gunman who somehow manages to kick ass against insurmountable odds (with some help).

    The 10 Most Underrated Episodes Of Arrested Development

It also feels beholden to more recent shows — it’s basically “Schitt’s Creek,” but with mobsters.
