Spotlight: Lioconvoy?

@  Bass X0 : (18 June 2021 - 04:15 PM)

How long until IDW puts out an Optimus Pride Month comic?

@  Cyoti : (18 June 2021 - 03:32 PM)

Even with B5, it didn't follow its original 5-year plan. Summaries from the supplementary materials for the scriptbooks demonstrates that was originally planned was very different from the actual product. Sinclair's actor's departure seemingly changed the show to the point that the stuff with the Vorlons/Shadows, the Minbari and the ending were all changed. Mapping out a show years in advance is difficult because of changing bts stuff like writers/actors leaving the show or suddenly having to retool because of ratings/execs. No plan survives intact especially in a chaotic environment of television production.

@  Rycochet : (18 June 2021 - 11:27 AM)

To be like Babylon 5, you need to cram a 2 season story arc into one because you fear being cancelled, then get further seasons you have no more material for. You also need a spinoff which the network heads don't want and do everything in their power to kill it while it's on air.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 June 2021 - 10:33 AM)

The required effort is probably why we don't have babylon 6; TNG.

@  Dekafox : (18 June 2021 - 10:23 AM)

Everyone wants to be like Babylon 5 but no one wants to put in the effort

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 09:36 AM)

And then, after five years of hosting their own official podcast where they would answer fan questions and always encouraged their audience to pay attention to the mysteries, after the show had ended, they claimed the show was never really about the mysteries, it was all about the characters.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 09:34 AM)

What really bugs me with "Lost" is that the producers had willfully negotiated a set end date with the network halfway through season 3 (the show ended with season 6, as planned) specifically so they could plan out the plot for the remainder of the show. Then... the plot wasn't resolved properly.

@  tigerhawk : (18 June 2021 - 04:17 AM)

By then I had lost interest in arc TV shows, I followed a few and got the impression they were just making them up as they went along. Seemed to be a trend starting with new Galactica and Lost though in actuality began with The X Files and has become a trope called 'The Chris Carter Effect'.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:12 AM)

I think it was season 3 part 1 specifically, since they had two separate plot "arcs" for season 3.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:11 AM)

They threw everything in there, with no clear story structure, no clear stakes, and characters flip-flopping wherever the episode's writer needed them to go for their half-baked plot.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:10 AM)

Season 3 was the worst, with a terrible meandering random events plot.

@  tigerhawk : (17 June 2021 - 11:59 PM)

'save the cheerleader' then in season 3 he tears her skull open, scans her power and she simply heals. They didn't think any of it through.

@  Shockwave 75 : (17 June 2021 - 07:04 PM)

Well, you know Hollywood; if something's popular, run it into the ground!

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

And then there was the Writers' Strike, which isn't the show's fault.

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

Yeah, Sylar should've been, if not killed off, at least left to rest.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

It never truly recovered from that.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

Season 1 was good until the finale.

@  Paladin : (17 June 2021 - 09:37 AM)

@  tigerhawk : (17 June 2021 - 08:58 AM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 June 2021 - 05:38 PM)

Thanks to Earthrise I can recreate the end of Return of Optimus Prime part 1.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 June 2021 - 11:19 AM)

I wish they would do something like that here: but then it would become obvious in which provinces you're getting gouged.

8ass X÷ has hijacked this conversation.

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 03:37 AM)

Its Bass X0. I named myself after my three favourite Mega Man characters - Bass, X and Zero. I did consider going with Vile Bass X0, but that would have been going too far.

I don't get it.  I just don't get it.  Why doesn't he just resign?  I mean, it's not like the QOP is gonna lose a seat as he's from Florida and DeScrewUpThePandemicResponce won't just appoint a Republican in his place.  

 

Ironbite-and once he's resigned, he can just flee the country.  I just don't get it.

I couldn't care less about the man himself, but I want to see justice actually carried out for once. Not another Epstein leading to it all being quietly swept aside and ignored while more Republicans get away free.

The politicians that gravitate towards florida never end up being punished for their crimes, so it's more like a senile colony for politicians.

Personally, I think it's more telling that it's only been since the early 90s that consequences for sexual misconduct has even been a THING for members of Congress. The first few on the list got off with censures and written letters of apology (I didn't include those).

It's gotten a lot easier to track and prove things as technology improves. We can only imagine how many people got away with terrible things simply because there wasn't enough evidence.

Mark McCloskey, the St. Louis lawyer known for brandishing a rifle at Black Lives Matter protesters outside his home last year, announced his run for the Senate in Missouri on Tuesday.

McCloskey, a Republican, announced his candidacy on Tucker Carlson's Fox News program.

"I've always been a Republican, but I've never been a politician," McCloskey told Carlson. "But, you know, God came knocking on my door last summer disguised as an angry mob, and it really did wake me up."

McCloskey said he was inspired to run for office as he was rallying for former President Donald Trump.

"All we hear is talk, and nothing ever changes," he said. "You have to send people to D.C. who are willing to tell the truth and fight for our values." https://www.nbcnews....ssouri-n1267873

 

 

he's gonna win by a hugging landslide.

If he were running for a house seat, maybe, senate? He's divisive enough even Missouri republicans might not want to take the chance on him effing it up so badly they get a dem in the way we saw with the capitalism robots they ran in Georgia.
