Thundercats was such a huge part of my childhood that when I saw this I was both super excited and full of dread. It looks different and I have to remind myself that the original series although an American show had a lot of anime influences (just check out that old intro) so this is a natural progression on that genre. And you know what it looks amazing. Can't wait to watch it.

The ice-age world is starting to look cosmopolitan. While Neanderthals held sway in Europe and modern humans were beginning to populate the globe, another ancient human relative lived in Asia, according to a genome sequence recovered from a finger bone in a cave in southern Siberia. A comparative analysis of the genome with those of modern humans suggests that a trace of this poorly understood strand of hominin lineage survives today, but only in the genes of some Papuans and Pacific islanders.

Just read two articles concerning Human-Neanderthal hybridization.
The first was in Discovery News about remains they've found in China with a mix of baseline human and neanderthal features.
The second more amusing article in Scientific American is about Ozzy Osbourne's genomes containing Neanderthal hints of DNA.
