I'd say "Goodnight, everybody!" but no one's made an innuendo yet.

Goodnight out there... whatever you are!

I hope not. Ruins the flavour.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 02:39 PM)

the debate sems to be over.

@  MEDdMI : (24 August 2016 - 02:37 PM)

Wouldn't it be easier to debate this in the comics subforum?

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:31 PM)

I don't have anything else to say (although I still think G2 is the true ending, even if G I Joe doesn't mention it, it seems G I Joe/G2 crossover isn't canon for G I Joe comics but only for the Transformers continuity)

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:29 PM)

ok whatever you won.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:27 PM)

that's why I said "if", I dunno I didn't read G2 or G I Joe. 

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 01:26 PM)

Also,you're still basing this entirely on G2 matching a storyline that was part of G2 itself rather than whether or not G2 matches better with the G1 comic proper.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 01:24 PM)

The idea kind of falls apart when it requires that the apocalyptic alien invasions had such little impact that everyone easily just ignored forever.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:17 PM)

If some issues of G I Joe comics is a prelude to G2 and if there's nothing in the future G I Joe stories that condradicts San Francisco getting destroyed, yes I would say they share a continuity. 

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 01:02 PM)

If you're gonna go "we can assume it did happen even though it's never talked about as long as nothing specifically contradicts it", then surely it's just as easy to assume that the actual G1 TF and Joe crossover happened in the backstory of Classics and RG1.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:02 PM)

also I refrained from mentioning Ask Vector Prime but but didn't it say RG1 is a splinter timeline?

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 12:58 PM)

has san francisco ever appeared in G I Joe stories that was chronologically set after G2?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 12:55 PM)

Intent is not the same as result. And comics end up ignoring things quite often.

@  Telly : (24 August 2016 - 12:54 PM)

maybe they figured a lot of people that read gi joe also read transformers. so they throw a crossover/build up in their to get some excitement for the new comic coming

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 12:51 PM)

If G2 universe was to be unrelated to G I Joe, why did they do a prelude to it?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 12:33 PM)

Classics and RG1 not including Joe issues 138-145 in their backstory does not preclude them from including TF 1-80, or even the Joe and TF miniseries.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 August 2016 - 12:30 PM)

Marvel 616 is also a massive continuity snarl from dozens of writers altering, retconning, or ignoring each others' work for decades, so it's not really a great example for an argument on continuity.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 12:29 PM)

Marvel 616 continuity is a shared universe, devastating events happens in individual series but does mean every event gets mentioned in other comics? @Notvery knightly, yeah that's why I edited that post.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 12:27 PM)

Your proof for "TF universe = Joe universe" itself is the G2 lead-up, so your reasoning still goes back to G2 matching G2.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 August 2016 - 12:25 PM)

So did GI Joe ever reference the time Bludgeon sent his entire force to rampage across the Earth? Or the time Jhiaxus blew San Francisco into a crater?

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 12:25 PM)

whatever.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 12:22 PM)

Are you not seeing the recursiveness of "G2 is the true G1 sequel because G2 follows up on a G2 storyline"?

Well, this is boring as hell. That voice being used for the whole thing stinks but then he really isn't doing what he does best and just attacking it. It's like he's really afraid to piss off the fans.

And the Bill Cosby crack was just dumb.

Right off the bat he bitches excessively about the Bay films.

And drags it on.


And on.


And on.




As much as these people bitch about Bay's films being tripe and unoriginal, I'm seeing even less originality in these "parodies".

I've never not turned off a Nostalgia Critic review before it was finished before.
But I just did now. Good god this was boring. He wasn't nitpicking, he wasn't making funny jokes, he was just summarizing the events and throwing in bad Windows 7 gags (was a Windows 98 gag just too dated, Doug?) in a crappy Optimus Prime imitation.

Not to mention the initial three minutes of Bay bitching.

Tell me, did he end the review with something along the lines of "It's better than the Bay films, at least"?

No, he just went on and on about how great the cartoons were for being action packed, having great designs and knowing who they were aiming the show at. I could actually hear him choking on Sunbow's junk.

And yeah, last I checked he loved the films for being great popcorn flicks but now he wants to take the high road by trashing them and talking about thie cartoon crapping rainbows and heart shaped candy.

That's the same formula the Bay movies have! Action, great designs and they knew who they were aiming the films at.

Yep.

I'm really not a fan of this pandering.There is SO much to pick on in that show. If you wanna end it by saying how much you loved it then do so but don't make a bland video about nothing for your series of comedic reviews of bad material.

The worst part of it all is Doug has previously said he was a not-caring-too-much-about-Transformers-I-was-too-old-when-it-came-out type guy, so this gushing comes WAY out of left field.

Such a shame. I was really looking forward to The Critics' "Transformers Cartoon" review & it winds up just another way to bash on the live-action films.

"Turtles" didn't get a free pass because he hated the Imagi film. "Superman" wasn't considered weaker because it didn't have Christopher Reeve. But the Robots are automatically better as a cartoon. hug that.

And what exactly was doing the review as Optimus Prime supposed to add to the experience???

Technically, Mike Michaud owns TGWTG, and apparently video management on the site isn't done by Doug. I've noticed this a lot, not just with Doug but with others, when the stuff is posted to Blip/their blogs/their personal websites well before showing up on TGWTG.com.
