Social media is the worst thing to happen to fandom, you can now see people whose work you like being jerks or shills on a daily basis, which is worse than a bad interview or two.

Also, I guess he hates IDW Soundwave for not being an emotionless brick like the cartoon version? Man. Any enjoyment of Animated in future is going to be tainted for me by the fact that DJW is the worst kind of boring Geewunner.

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:04 AM)

He also hates Action Man for no apparent reason other than "I don't know who this is and I don't care to find out". Which isn't fair, because Ian is the best character in IDW.

Sipher made a sarcastic remark about Sakamoto's skeeviness. Derrick called him an a**hole, and insulted his art, which was a low, unnecessary blow.

@  Pennpenn : (26 September 2016 - 03:49 AM)

I've had versions where the issue doesn't come up (or at least doesn't come up in the part I notice the most), but the version that got remastered for Bluray and DVD releases have it.

@  Nevermore : (26 September 2016 - 02:05 AM)

I initially misheard "flying tools of torment" as "we're flyin' into some torment".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2016 - 01:08 AM)

If it's a problem with all released versions, maybe the original audio source was itself damaged?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 09:30 PM)

I wish they'd relase a remastered version that fixed the audio and included at least had an option to have the text crawl rather than the credits at the start.

@  Telly : (25 September 2016 - 09:27 PM)

tryin to buy the movie from amazon for $20-ish. the price of it has been fluctuating like crazy. not a day has gone by that it hasnt dropped to one price and then gone back up a few hours later. never seen a price fluctuate so much

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:57 PM)

Then again, a lot of versions of the movie had pretty bad sound quality, even the most recent blu-rays mess it up in places, so it's not as much our fault if we misheard stuff.

@  Arazyr : (25 September 2016 - 07:28 PM)

When I first heard it, half of it may as well have been in a foreign language, for all I could make out. (Of course, I can say that about most music...)

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:14 PM)

I can't remember entirely, and I can't "hear" anything but the actual lyrics now, but I remember "I am born to hurt you, I'll break the boundless sky" as how my brain parsed the first words.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 07:01 PM)

So what did you hear?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 06:39 PM)

I almost completely misinterpreted the lyrics for that song for ages, and when I did find out what they were I thought my idea of the lyrics was better.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 06:29 PM)

So apparently the 2016 remake of "Instruments of Destruction" is out. I'm still waiting for an Amazon download to become available, but the clips I heard thus far sound cool. They're using the uncensored lyrics!

@  Bass X0 : (25 September 2016 - 03:02 PM)

So, I got to watch the first three episodes last night. While the banter is pretty well written and combat is fairly flowing, plus ya gotta like anything where they try to replicate the movie tony stark: did they mess up air order? Because episode three felt like 1, and 1 and 2 (Jail break two parter) could easily have come after. Consequently, there are continuity errors that make it seem like the writers don't know what their doing. Like an entire episode of iron man acting like he's completely and totally alone when he's already formed the avengers and worked with other heroes.

Does it get better, or is it like this all the way through.

Episodes 3 to 7 were originally shown online as webisodes.

They carry production numbers 001 up to 005, whilst the breakout is 006 and 007

Not sure what the recommended watching order is. Probably production order

I watched them on Netflix, and its got them in production order. with the solo hero episodes being pre-jail break. I don't consider the series the best ever; but it is very good, though I never really got used to Tony Stark's voice he sounds kinda like Jack Black to me.

Yeah, Wikipedia rather insists on putting them in that stupid-ass order, completely failing to communicate how they should be watched. Episodes "3" to "7" are actually 1-5, and should be watched first, while "Breakout" is 6-7.

Yeah, Breakout only aired at the series premier becuase it was the actual formation of the Avengers. Its technically a smart move for broadcast. Nice big action piece that sets the stage for the show and hope people get interested, then the solo stuff that might have not gotten people interested as they wait 5 weeks for the show to actually be about the Avengers. But watching them now, after they've all aired and you don't have to wait weeks for the next episode its best in production order. Disney XD even handled to those five episodes right. They aired them in a single marathon run the first time, so that they still skip the "5 week wait of solo heroes" before going to episode 8.

The one problem with Breakout being aired first that left me going "huh?" for a good bit was The Big House. One of the "prequel" episodes adequately shows what's going on with that facility, which you're expected to know come Breakout. But not having bothered to watch the original webisodes, the Shield Helicarrier suddenly has buildings sprouting out of it out from nowhere, and is going down.

Banner's imprisonment was also a little out of nowhere, but it was at least easy to infer what was up with him.


The DVDs, thankfully, are in proper viewing order. Can't wait for the S1P2 set to come out next month (at least I'm assuming that's how it'll be released, as per the first half. The Canadian release was in a half-season set, rather than the two separate disks of the US release). Haven't gotten around to seeing any of those episodes, due to some screwy airing schedules. The "Gamma World" story was pretty epic, and I hear things only go up from there.


From what I've seen, The Hulk's easily my favourite character. Hulk with a bit of wit and attitude behind him is a wonderfully scary thing.

Hulk and Black Panther I think are the best characters in the series.

I haven't seen enough of the Black Panther to get a good read on him. His first major appearances give him this irritating "I'm better than all of you" vibe (not so much in attitude, thankfully, or he'd be even worse), which just grates. Otherwise, he doesn't interact with the rest of the cast all that much.

My biggest complain with the series is that it looks outright silly in shots when Hawkeye and Cap and Thor are all standing around with their silly outfits and giant shoulders like manly dudes in cosplay. Some refinements to give them more distinguished and friendlier facial structure would really help the series. Oh, and the intro music is horrid.

After the hiatus, they seemed to have changed the song when it aired on TV. Now it's just the instrumental with a terrible narration and scenes from the show itself intercut with the theme animation. It kinda made me miss the terrible Linkin Park wannabe song. Plus it breaks the flow of the action with the new way it was edited.

I dunno, aren't the heroes supposed to stand out some? I mean, its not like marvel was ever that big on the whole secret identity thing, and having the powers for heroics usually means being either real big or a mutant in some way. I mean, its not the like the superman cartoon where the dude is five feet across at the shoulders, the only one in the world like that and literally no one can see it.

I personally love the song, and plan to reset the movie trailer to it.

Oh hey, the Canadian pt.2 boxset actually comes out next week, a week before you guys get your single-disk versions.

Gonna have to pick that up, and catch up on what I've missed.

Not gonna double-dip on the BluRay. I've already got Part 1 on DVD, and I don't really see much point in TV animation on BluRay anyways.
