    not sure who or what madman is but the only title of any interest is billy connolly, he’s a legend i have most if not all his dvds at home.

    Sorry I love ninjas and I love animation so laughter is out of the question. While I do not like CGI tv shows I love the various shows on the adult swim time block.
