You know those times where you just stumble upon a show and then just compulsory watch every single one like a complete addict then watch your favorite ones over again just because. JonTron's show has been that for the past week. If you've read past Web Wednesdays, you know I'm all about the delivery.

As we're in furry land, what about argueably one of the biggest dissapointments of the GameCube era, Stairfax Temperatures...or Starfox Adventures:
