Anyone know what the caption on this page refers to? http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Primon

After the season finale where RM Corp found a way to make thinking Bots, I was hoping for a continuation of the story where Paradim learned the hard way the downside of Bots that can say, "No."

@  Rycochet : (28 September 2016 - 09:40 AM)

I liked Phantom 2040 more.

@  Blues : (27 September 2016 - 05:08 PM)

I LOVE BOT MASTER SO MUCH. Too bad the toys sucked. I even own jungle fiver. I love him so much, but he can barely stand on his own.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 September 2016 - 05:03 PM)

That's the 90s.

@  MEDdMI : (27 September 2016 - 04:50 PM)

Ninjzz? That's an unfortunate name.

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 04:44 PM)

Also I thought Fico Ossio was quite nice on Revolutions.

@  Rycochet : (27 September 2016 - 04:36 PM)

You know the planet is in a jam, a diabolical plan of only one man. Louis Leon Paradim an international punk, and his army of 3As are his piece of junk.

@  Telly : (27 September 2016 - 04:26 PM)

for the longest time i thought jungle fiver was called jungle fiBer

@  Bass X0 : (27 September 2016 - 04:21 PM)

Does anybody remember the cartoon Bots Master? I enjoyed the show but looking back on it, most of the robot designs were lame. The only cool designs were Jungle Fiver and Ninjzz although the toys were nothing compared to Transformers of course. I thought the main human characters were decent enough for a show about robots. 

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:43 PM)

Although this is odd to me, since I'm fairly sure they are/were good friends.

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:42 PM)

Yeah I stopped liking the guy when I found his Twitter.

I cut out the middleman and assume that they're all jerks and/or shills.

@  Rycochet : (27 September 2016 - 07:15 AM)

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.

@  Robowang : (27 September 2016 - 07:12 AM)

Dirty Jerk Warts?

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:05 AM)

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.

@  Jalaguy : (27 September 2016 - 06:47 AM)

DJW was mouthing off about the art for Revolution the other day too, doesn't entirely surprise.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 September 2016 - 08:17 PM)

Oof.

@  zephyrX9 : (26 September 2016 - 08:05 PM)

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.

@  Touch My Thighs : (26 September 2016 - 07:43 PM)

What did Derrick do?

@  Pennpenn : (26 September 2016 - 07:42 PM)

Yeah, it was really sad that they didn't survive in any of the endings. Eaten by Unicron every time.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 September 2016 - 10:14 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk WWE Raw is on tonight. By the third hour, it'll probably feel the same, minus the actual physical trauma.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2016 - 09:51 AM)

I think I'd rather punch myself in the nuts.

@  Dracula : (26 September 2016 - 09:34 AM)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (26 September 2016 - 09:32 AM)

Hillary versus Trump tonight. Oh boy.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2016 - 06:53 AM)

I think I'm just too used to metal to not understand the lyrics.

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 September 2016 - 06:02 AM)

it's a vile interruption, chess the scripture way

@  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.

Is anyone watching this amazing show? Unlike most shows that come on, I feel compelled to try to figure out what's going on and scour each scene for clues or hints.

My fear is that this show is too smart for viewers and will go the way of Journeyman and leave us unfulfilled.

Hadn't heard of it. I fell out of the habit of keeping track of new TV shows a few years ago. Since then I've mostly heard about them after the fact, and bought or rented them on Blu-Ray or DVD if they sounded interesting. It airs on Global up here; I'll have to see if there are any past episode recordings stored in Bell's free on-demand database. The description on Wikipedia reminds me a bit of Charlie Jade, another parallel universe mystery series from 2005. That one didn't last too long; I don't think it even made it to 2006, lol.

It's on Hulu but I don't think you get that up there. Maybe if you proxy it or something but I really don't know much about that. It's only 6 episodes in so it's early enough to get caught up on. It doesn't make my jaw drop when I watch it, but there's a lot of care in the production.

Its amazing and I look forward to watching the rest of them.

It's an interesting show and we're enjoying watching it, but it's telegraphed so obviously that neither reality is the real one that I think it takes a bit of fun out of the "Which one is the hallucination?" hook.

I'm a bit surprised that there's been more "one world gives a vague dream-logic hint about the other" mystery-solving than "clues from one world help him solve mysteries in the other". It makes things less predictable, I guess, but it also means that the episodes don't have to be written as cleverly as I was expecting them to be.

When I saw the commercial for it many weeks back for the first time, I was thinking the same way. It looks too high concept to last. Actually, that feeling was so strong I kinda disregarded it entirely and forgot it was happening until you posted this.

Why yes, I am part of the problem.

So the finale is next week. Not the season finale because NBC has decided that America is too dumb for a good show that makes you think.

I worry we won't get any closure on the story. Looks like we'll probably be wrapping up the whole accident conspiracy thing but I don't see them actually telling us what's going on with the two worlds. Maybe when the show's confirmed cancelled the creator can just tell us what the secret was.

I'll let you know Thursday. But I guess I'm thinking of it as a 13 part mini series.

There was enough of a finishing point to make it worth watching, Cheets.

Honestly, this was pretty much the ending I was expecting.

HIGHLIGHT to view:
That both realities were false and he'd wake up in a third one.

Is the third one the actual reality? Well the way it ended, I guess so. But I imagine if there had been a second season, we'd have that shattered since the lead up with the shrink could be read as though he was generating this third reality in his mind and not really "waking up".

Also, I do wish that there was more to this third reality than just waking up from a dream. Negating EVERYTHING that he experiencing in the dreams, eh. Not a big fan. I would have preferred that the accident still happened, but he was the most seriously injured. And in a coma. All the various plots with his wife, son, boss, partners, etc could have been his subconscious reacting to the real world. Ie, when his son visited him, he'd dream he was with Rex. When his wife visited, he'd dream about Hannah. When he overheard the chief say something about the accident, he'd dream of the conspiracy against him.


But... It was an ending. Which is better than I had expected.
