  • Black Dynamite Doesn't Disappoint!

    Jackson Five Across Yo' Eyes is the debut episode for the highly anticipated Black Dynamite animated show! And boy did it start off with a bang!

    Back dropped in the 70s, this episode of Black Dynamite allows us to see the origin for one of the world's most famous musicians... Michael Jackson! We are treated to the beginnings of the Jackson Five (the physical abuse these youngsters including 'Shamone' and Ben suffered through) and see what molded young Michael to become the influential power he would become.

    Oh wait, this is about Black Dynamite right? Unfortunately BD's mission against 'ignorant ninjas' gets sidetrack by one Cream Corn who is caught up in Michael Mania and isn't around when BD needs him most. Unfortunately Cream Corn discovers the horrors the other Jacksons are subjected to and it's up to BD to save him.

    This episode is hilarious from start to finish. References to 'ignorant ninjas', BD's ongoing interrogation of the HNIC (that's Head Ninja In Charge for those not in the know), to the ninjas teaming up with BD to save Cream Corn from the Jackson menace. It's funny to see how Michael's signature moves, sayings and even his look came about and all topped off with a rendition of the Girl is Mine sung by Michael and Cream Corn.

    If Black Dynamite continues as strong as this episode is, we are all in for a treat. Watch and enjoy!
