*WARNER BROS. HOME ENTERTAINMENT PROVIDED ME WITH A FREE COPY OF THE DVD I REVIEWED IN THIS BLOG POST. THE OPINIONS I SHARE ARE MY OWN.*

If you haven't heard of 'FLCL' (aka Fooly Cooly), you're so missing out on a super fun and oddly colorful anime experience. You may remember the original six-episode series on Adult Swim back in the early 2000's, which, like most anime, has garnered a significant cult following. It was also accompanied by a novel and a manga (comic/graphic novel), just adding to its popularity and desire for more. The second season, aptly named 'FLCL Progressive,' came back to Adult Swim 15 years after season one aired, followed by 'FLCL Alternative' that same year. A total of 12 episodes rounded out the final two seasons and now, they have been put together in one set for your viewing pleasure and it is not just the two discs you will love; there is so much more to the collection. 

As always, with Blu-ray, there are special features and this is my favorite part of getting discs over streaming. The special little nuggets diehard fans will go crazy for and there's not a shortage here. Inside you get the chance to meet the creators so the people who brought your fave 'FLCL' characters to life; a BTS look at the making of the final two seasons; BTS of the production for the series; and the voices for the English actors. We often wonder who  they are and how they translate these characters so well that they span the continents and create such a connection. Now, you can find out. And, both Japanese and English audio are included to get the full impact!

Such has been the case for 'Jerseylicious' star, Tracy DiMarco , who always went head-to-head with Olivia Blois-Sharpe on the show based around the never-ending drama at the Jersey salon, The Gatsby. Eventually, DiMarco got her happily ever after when she married Corey Epstein in her dream wedding. She continued to pursue her passion, have three kids, develop a wildly successful podcast, and work on clothing and accessories.  But, when you are in the public eye, boasting 541K followers on Instagram , almost everything you do is up for scrutiny. Fans (and haters) began to notice a lack of presence when it came to her husband, Corey and questioned if their marriage was okay. There is an abundance of photos of daughters, Skylar and

'The Real L Word' Cast- Where Are They Now?

  photo courtesy of amazon.com With the return of the hit Showtime series, 'The L Word,' it makes fans of the original show and ultimate reality spinoff, 'The Real L Word,' quite nostalgic. Actors can keep acting but reality stars can drift off into the clouds after their 15 minutes of fame are over. TRLW lasted three seasons with a revolving door of lesbians who soon became like friends and family. Initially based in California, the show followed the lives of a handful of gay women, somehow intertwined in life, and what it was like to date, fall in love, have sex, try to make babies, propose, be successful, and so much more. By the final season, the series went bi-coastal, utilizing NYC as a playground, as well. The show ended in 2012 with two weddings and a lot of tears. So, where are they now?
