Channel Surfing: Awesome TV picks for the week of 03/22/2021

Adult animation dominates the Channel Surfing TV picks this week.

It’s a big week for animated shows and our three Channel Surfing TV picks reflect that. The popular Dota video game franchise is receiving the series treatment with Dota: Dragon’s Blood. Similarly, the popular comic, Invincible, is receiving a small screen adaptation. Then, Hulu’s number one watched show, Solar Opposites, returns for its second season.

Dragon Slaying

Though Dota began with someone else, developer, Valve eventually earned the trademark to the name. In addition to releasing several games related to the brand, Valve has explored other content avenues for the popular franchise. That includes the release of an adult animated fantasy series co-produced and streaming on Netflix.

The story follows a brave but troubled Dragon Knight who must use the power of the dragon within in order to confront a dangerous demon. Dota: Dragon’s Blood is mostly based off of the 2013 title, Dota 2. Expect an epic adventure filled with drama and action.

Dota: Dragon’s Blood premieres Thursday, March 25, on Netflix.

A Violent Teen Superhero Story

Robert Kirkman and Cory Walker created the Image Comics superhero, Invincible. His exploits ran for 15 years and 144 issues. Now the series has a chance for a second life on your television screens that will hopefully entertain die hards but attract an entirely new audience.

The titular character’s real name is Mark Grayson and he is a normal teenager in high school. However, his father is secretly the most powerful superhero on the planet and when Mark turns 17, his own powers begin to manifest. We then follow him as he is trained by his father and he tries to make a name for himself on his own.

Our own, Nick Nafpliotis, shared his first impressions and don’t forget to watch the first three episodes of Invincible when they drop Friday, March 26, on Amazon Prime Video.

The Solar Opposites Get a Season Two

Justin Roiland has made a name for himself with his ability to develop entertaining adult animated science fiction sitcoms. His most popular project that he co-created is the fan favorite, Rick and Morty. To further cement himself in the genre, he released Solar Opposites, which experienced success in its own right. Now Korvo, Terry, and the rest of the bunch return for an all-new season.

I’m sure there will be more zany predicaments with even zanier gadgets used to solve your beloved Shlorpians’ problems. Though I wonder how the people in the Wall are managing after a violent revolution and an equally shocking betrayal.

The entire second season of Solar Opposites will be released this Friday, March 26, on Hulu.
