Myopia: Defend Your Childhood We watch the movies you grew up with, you know the ones. The ones that you were so close to, that you no longer even see the problems with them when you look closely. Do they hold up? Can you defend your childhood? Every week on Myopia: Defend Your Childhood, we put another little piece of your past on trial. Did you binge on pizza watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Cowabunga!)? Watch animated classics like The Land Before Time in your pajamas, or sing along to A Goofy Movie? Was Space Jam your jam? Were you hooked on the brothers (Super Mario Brothers, that is)? We’ll watch it and give you the verdict.

No, that’s crazy! They wouldn’t try to reboot the series is darker and grittier with a rugged James Bond doesn’t make quips more than once or possibly twice!
