The Spandex Report
The "Holy Crap, Two Weeks Adds Up" Edition
June 7, 2011

- This first bit of news is a non-franchise deal, probably more suited for the Editor's Note, but we wanted to make sure everyone saw it. Basically, we're looking for some new folks to help out around these parts! [personal profile] angel_negra and lielabell had to leave the SR for greener pastures (we will miss them greatly, of course), so we're in the market for two new editors. If any of you are interested, please hit us up at spandexreport@gmail.com.
- As you may have noticed from the lack of a "Next Episode Airtimes" section below, last Saturday's ep "Boxed In" seems to be the last for a while. We're currently on reruns now and will be for some time to come, it seems. Whether this is only a short break or whether the original word on the streets about Samurai lasting two years is true remains to be seen.
- Speaking of Samurai, a new video game by Namco Bandai was revealed at E3 today that will be coming out this holiday season for Wii and DS. A trailer can be seen on Youtube here.
- Anybody that's planning on going to San Diego Comic Con this year may be interested in a contest that can get you VIP treatment for the con's PR-based events and panels. More information can be found at the official PR Facebook page here.


- No Pink Spandex Episode 128: Freak Out the Murderer - Power Rangers Samurai Episode 8 "Forest for the Trees" and more.

They also recapped the Johnny Yong Bosch, Dan Southworth, and Ray Park movie Hellbinders in two parts.
