Does it seem like I got lazy here? I kind of did. It was a wall of text page and I had stuff I rather be doing that day. But on to our first place review!

Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood:
This is honestly one of the best put together shows I ever seen in my life. Yes its and anime, but once you get over that dang its really good. There are actully two versions of this show. Fullmetal Alchemist. Which is based off the manga but needed to finish before the manga was done so the show went off and did its own thing. Then there is Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood. This was done after the manga had finished and follows the original story line. The first show is ok but I really hated the ending. So I am going to be talking about, Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood the best anime I have seen!
The story is about two brothers Edward Elric and Alphonse Elric. These two brothers skilled in the practice of alchemy made the mistake of trying to bring their dead mom back to life. The cost was Edward losing his leg and Alphonse losing his body. Edward would save Alphonse by giving up his arm to seal his brother's soul in a suit of armor. Now Edward has a robotic arm and leg. well Alphonse is a empty suit of armor. The story picks up with the two brothers trying to find a way to get their bodies back.
Well the goal of the brothers getting their bodies back is never really lost, it does get set aside at time for bigger things going on. The country they live in has been involved a quite a few wars and has a strong military background. This also serves as a story backbone for most of the show as the Elric brothers balance restoring their bodies against military responsibilities and secret agendas . The shows story is a hard one to keep summed up but it does an amazing job at keeping it all balanced and working together.
More pros about this show is that the animation and art is very well done. The characters are very easy to like and like to hate. And again dang if that story doesn't grab you! The pacing is very well done and very little feels like a time waster is this show. It's a show that is so well put together it's hard to pick out just one good thing about it.
To be fair I will point out two cons of the show. It swear but nothing really bad. And it has gore. But that's about it for cons.
Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood is one of the best shows I have ever seen. Yes it's a anime but if you can get over that then you are in for a real treat with this one.

Exposition is costly. It's necessary to the story, but it threatens to kill the pace, and the soul. There's no one way to correct presentations, but there are a thousand story killers. The way you introduce it works.
