Unfortunately, Paul's financial savvy didn't match his creative genius and ECW was eventually purchased by WWE.
Love Lab Complete
It would have been bad enough if Natsuo only wanted advice, but Fujisaki Girls Academy's most brilliant student is also the most obsessive, and simply talking about the opposite sex isn't sufficient. No, Natsuo postulates hypothetical scenarios and 'researches' them in her secret love lab. And since interaction with boys is banned at Fujisaki, guess who has to help act those fantasies out?
Mythbusters Collection 11
The mythbusting team, including their fearless leaders Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, serves up its share of explosive entertainment, blowing up myths with bazookas, RPGs, C4, and of course, a toilet bomb.
