i didnt. not until '83 anyway :thumbsup

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 01:00 AM)

Yeah, that was a hard one to take. So many nerds from '77 on must've grown up having a crush on her

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:34 AM)

I mean, I knew it was coming, but just hearing Carrie say "May the Force be with you" hurt :(

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:32 AM)

They always save the saddest deaths for last in the "in memoriam" sequence.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:30 AM)

I am glad they made the right choice with Best Animated, even if it was a tough call this year.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:28 AM)

I remember him from the old days on Breaker High airing on YTV

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:28 AM)

Also, Ryan Gosling. Ugh, go #### yourself Ryan Gosling, with your perfect bone structure

@  NotVeryKnightly : (27 February 2017 - 12:26 AM)

Since there's way more nominees than winners in every category that's not exactly unusual.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:25 AM)

Even then, I think it lost more nominations than it won.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:24 AM)

I think the reason La La Land won so many awards is because it was basically Hollywood stroking its own ego

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:20 AM)

Kinda glad. I like Emma Stone, but for whatever reason I can't stand that movie. I'm surprised it didn't win though, as it was typical Oscar bait

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:19 AM)

This is just goddamn surreal.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:19 AM)

Holy shit. It had the second-most nominations of any movie, and La La Land just lost Best Picture.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:11 AM)

"Look where I've been, I make everything happen! Look at that mean Mini Maui just tikkity tappin'! Ha ha ha ha HA HA HA HEY!"

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:10 AM)

Yeah, same. "You're Welcome" is honestly the best song in the movie.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 February 2017 - 12:06 AM)

I liked the Moana song, though personally I enjoyed You're Welcome a little bit more because of the humor.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:04 AM)

Ah, well. As much as him not getting an Oscar hurts, Lin-Manuel has a shitload of awards already, so missing out on one isn't too bad. The guy managed to hit the jackpot with the Tonys for Hamilton and win a Grammy for it and get an Emmy... Somewhere. Don't know where he got the Emmy.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:02 AM)

@NVK: I realize that, but I still don't like that a terrible Zak Snyder film managed to even get an award.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:00 AM)

Look, I can understand The Force Awakens not getting a single award. Hell, I can even understand why Transformers lost to The Golden Compass.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (27 February 2017 - 12:00 AM)

But Moana and Suicide Squad weren't nominated for the same things.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 11:47 PM)

We officially live in a world where a film involving Zak Snyder is apparently more deserving of an award than Lin-Manuel Miranda.

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 February 2017 - 10:58 PM)

I was pretty shocked Star Trek Beyond lost out in Best Makeup to Suicide Squad. Killer Croc looked good, but Trek had a lot of good alien makeup

@  Maruten : (26 February 2017 - 10:36 PM)

I was surprised to see that everyone's so into La La Land. On paper it seems right up my alley, but I thought it was pretty... meh.

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 February 2017 - 09:38 PM)

I read that as EPCOT status

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 09:26 PM)

I have a sinking feeling La La Land is going to win Best Song and keep Lin-Manuel Miranda from achieving EGOT status.

@  Echowarrior : (26 February 2017 - 07:12 PM)

Our Hydra is better than Marvel's Hydra. Just saying.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 07:05 PM)

@  TriBlurr : (26 February 2017 - 07:03 PM)

@  Confuzor : (26 February 2017 - 06:01 PM)

I got my MP Primal pretty quickly, but I haven't sent the payment confirmation on my Cheetor yet

@  Paladin : (26 February 2017 - 05:32 PM)

@  Verno : (26 February 2017 - 04:52 PM)

@  Noideaforaname : (26 February 2017 - 11:04 AM)

I remember watching Doug all the time as a kid, but I watch it now and I don't at all see the appeal. *shrug* On the plus side, it added the word "nematode" to my vocabulary.

@  Rycochet : (26 February 2017 - 09:08 AM)

90s Nicktoons were awful.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 08:16 AM)

Yeah, I'd get really pumped to watch it and the other Nicktoons.

@  lastmaximal : (26 February 2017 - 08:04 AM)

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:40 AM)

Hate watching stuff like that.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:40 AM)

Also, I digged Doug. Mostly for the ancillary characters, though. Doug himself is one of those characters who gets into situations that make YOU feel embarrassd. Like Fred Savage on The Wonder Years.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:39 AM)

@PlutoniumBoss *Pinwheel fistbump*

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:38 AM)

I remember Today's Special. The Toronto part was something of a revelation from my wife and her family when I came here.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 02:34 AM)

In hindsight, I'm pretty sure Miss Frizzle was a Time Lord.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 02:34 AM)

I got into science because of Magic School Bus.

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 February 2017 - 11:25 PM)

Anyone else remember Puttnam's Prairie Emporium? Not sure if it aired outside Canada

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 February 2017 - 11:21 PM)

Today's Special was a favourite of mine. Some of it was actually filmed at a department store here in Toronto

@  PlutoniumBoss : (25 February 2017 - 10:34 PM)

Eureka! and Start Here were awesome too.

@  The Doctor Who : (25 February 2017 - 09:59 PM)

I remember watching Newton's Apple on PBS. That's where I learned about thermal insulation layers and why things change temperature faster when you blow on them.

An adult show to give the true Transformers fan what they want.

 

Transformers: Buckets of Blood.

 

Megatron and the Decepticons (using only the pure Sunbow season 1&2 lineup) invade the Earth. Every episode they kill as many people as they can with their fists and feet.

 

Optimus Prime and his Sunbow seasons 1&2 friends must stop them. They are powered by a process like Powermasters, but instead of men turning into their engines, they must snap people open and use their blood to power them.

 

Hot Rod is also in it but he is a stupid idiot fool and he dies each week in a gruesome and ironic way. 

 

50% of the scripts each week is dialogue directly lifted from TFTM.

To most Cybertronians, the most scariest creatures to them are usually off world. But what lies beneath.....only a few have the questionable honor of knowing. Sure, there's Mutants, Demons, Trans-Organics, even the occasional Sparkeater-but they're what is allowed to leak to the surfaces. Eldritch entities, corpses with their inner energon dried out and sewn together shambling around, viruses that take over and mimic the CNA from inside a Cybertronian body until mutating the body beyond recognizance, and things which are impossible to describe. The faction's highest leaders have agreed to set aside differences for protection against these entities, keeping certain areas off limits from their troops, while inter-faction squadrons go in to take care of problems. They don't always come out, and those that do aren't always the same person they were before....or even alive at all.

This is meant as a gag series, something that operates on a mix of "rule of cool" and "rule of funny". 

 

 

Transformers: Dis-Unit:E

 

Once upon a time, Mesogalove was a top Quintesson scientist. A wretched excuse for a sentient being, but a top scientist. Then he backed the wrong faction in an internal dispute, forcing him to flee the planet. 

 

...But other than that, everything was going just fine until he landed on Earth and UNIT:E found him. 

 

Given his ability to take on human size and appearance, the UNIT:E operatives responsible for his case rushed to assemble a quick cover story. His new, human guise is Mason Glover, a visiting British researcher who has come to study American systems; any eccentricities, they figured, would be down to either his being foreign or his being in the midst of a mid-life crisis. 

 

In order to actually hide him, they shipped him off to Rexburg, Idaho, home of sleeper agent and not-quite-playboy millionaire [male lead 2]. A few years ago, [male lead 2] combined his knowledge of business and [supplementary character 1]'s knowledge of computers to create the A-37 algorithm, an investment algorithm that they sold to a major trading firm for millions plus royalties; as long as the firm continues within the limitations of the algorithm, it can't fail. That the pair are using the newer, more robust B-27 algorithm for their own personal investments is besides the point...

 

Given [male lead 2]'s status as one of the two people behind it and his occasionally serving as professor at the college in town, it made sense for him to play host... never mind the fact that he's already busy being Batman / Captain America. He's actually a Titans Return-style headmaster and the operator of a transtector that turns into an F-4 outfitted with a custom wild weasel package. 

 

They are soon joined by [female lead], a humanoid alien bounty hunter who was sent to retrieve Mesogalove until [male lead 2]... "convinced" her to knock it off. She, too, is now - in a human guise - hanging out at his place. 

 

Mesagalove will eventually get his own transtector... a 1980's-style van with airbrushed artwork consisting of his Quintesson form and the words "Quintesson Express". [Female lead]'s transtector will be a beast form based on the animal her species is based on (either a cat or a fox; trying to decide). 

 

 

 

Mormon Batman.

 

The Quintesson Manhunter.

 

Animal Girl Hawkgirl.

 

They might just save the world... if they don't kill each other first.

You know Starscream's coronation gear, or the capes all the bad guys had in Zone? That.

Everybody gets capes, more ornate helmets, maybe swords all over. Like, a big emphasis on not just battle gear, but battle regalia.

 

Also literally no combat and all fighitng is done via musical contest at dive bars.

A Transformers version of Batman: The Brave and the Bold.
With musical numbers.

 

 

Stoic, by-the-book straight man Optimus Prime fights the Decepticon threat across time and space, backed up by a revolving force of high-concept Autobots/Maximals based on mission - many of them a bit obscure, with Prime just as likely to team up with the ghost of Guardian Prime against the nightmarish Violin Jiger as he is to try & stop over-eager cadet Hot Shot from charging Fort Syk solo as he is to challenge Megatron to a primetime wrestling match. (Megatron cheats by getting Fracture to rush in with a chair when Prime's not looking)

Sunbow/Earthforce aesthetics with modern-day writing styles.
 

Whether Prime transforms into a neon superstreet luge is unconfirmed.

The Decepticons are voiced by Dan Avidan and Arin Hanson.

Now I can't stop thinking about Transformers The Brave And The Bold - or "Transformers: Prime Time!" as it would have to be called.

 

I see the exposition being provided by T-Ai, who works as the Al to Prime's Sam Beckett.

 

Optimus has to go undercover in the Decepticons and paints himself black, calls himself Scourge, and tries to talk 'evil'.

Ambitious Mini-Con Clench finds a way to hijack Megatron and uses him to conquer the Mini cities - and the only Mini-Cons free to help Optimus are the X-TREME teens of the Street Action Team.

See, I was thinking that Scourge would instead be an eeeevil clone of Optimus, and the brother of Megaplex, who's really quite nice once you get to know him. They're created by Jhiaxus.

(Scourge would later come back, assembling a team called "the Sweeps", which consists of clones of Optimus that look like his equivalents from other continuities. They're all good guys and not really sure why Scourge wants them to be evil.)

He could brainwash them or in TF terms, reprogram them to be evil or they could be evil Optimus clones from other realities and the leader is Scourge Prime, from Universe 1, similar to how there is mutable verisons of the Flash in the TV series Flash, Jhiaxus could boast that he created them using a cloning means and said there was some kind of error in the clone procress which is why they look similar yet different (different bodies and transformations) yet the truth would be Jhiaxus didn't create clones, he simply adducted the other bots from their realities while they were recharging their enegries and reprogram them, while Scourge No 1 thinks he in charge of things but he just a puppet and a pawn in a larger game playing by another bot or being.
