The 2010 Black Panther Television Show You Probably Didn’t Know Existed

If you’ve never heard of this show, that’s probably because it apparently only aired on ABC3 Australia (whatever that is). How did I end up watching it? Well, I’m obsessed with animated super hero television shows. It’s sort of embarrassing actually. I  just went through all 5 seasons of the 90’s X-men series…for the second time in the last decade. I regret nothing. Am I excited about the new episodes of Avengers: Secret Wars that are finally going to drop this Saturday? Yeah, and that show’s not even very good. I have a problem. I never said weed doesn’t have some weird side effects.

Anyway, was just doing a routine scan for this sort of thing on Netflix back in 2010 and this show came up. Is it good? Yeah, it’s really fucking cool actually. Well written with an incredibly unique animation style. Wife ended up watching the whole thing with me and it was part of why she was amped for the film. Because it was surprisingly great, I was in fact like, where did this come from exactly? Again, ABC3 in Australia. That’s the only place it ever aired if Wikipedia is to be believed.

Here’s the bad news. It’s only six 20 minute episodes, but on YouTube or Amazon they’ll charge you 20 bucks for 12, 10 minute episodes. What the cock is that ass? You can still get the DVD from Netflix if you’re one of the old people that still pays for that option (like I do). Here’s a free taste.

Update: In insane Sychronicity news, BET decided to start incrementally uploading the entire show to their FB page on the EXACT day I posted this.
