I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

@  Telly : (16 October 2019 - 10:48 PM)

my walmart is acting true to form. as soon as mirage arrives from amazon, my walmart gets his entire wave in after months of having wave 1 clogging the pegs....

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

So is there a massive outrage going on or is someone using bots to downgrade season 8 at Rotten Tomatoes? TON of recently created accounts are giving it 1 star and it just keeps on going.

Well, I just finished rewatching the series over the last couple weeks...and overall, I'm satisfied with it.

 

I still have a minor complaint about Shiro's last minute hookup, however - it was very tell rather than show. For all the complaints about Korra and Asami, the two at least spent time together just hanging out and establishing some basis for a relationship. Shiro and Curtis had substantially less than that.

I think some of the relationships and stuff were just left out of the show so they could focus primary on the five pilots of Voltron plus do a mini redeeming arc for Zarkon and give some info on the fate of the other three Pladdins of old. I kind of would of liked maybe a extra season of Legendary Defender, mainly to build on the relationships of the characters, Shiro's ending was pretty much out of the blue but then some countries are sensative over the whole gay rights thing and their dubbing could change the previous relationship Shiro had with this Adam guy and they could easily cut out the scene at the end with Shiro marriage to an unknown much like a lot of the blood and stuff was cut from Golion as it was turned into Voltron Defender of the Universe.

We never saw how Shiro spent his day off in the season premiere (and the whole thing was HIS idea).  They could've thrown in one scene there to set up the relationship, and that ending would've made a little more sense.

Its likely he was busy ensuring all of the paperwork was done and ready for the Altas's launch, he quickly became the head of Galaxy Garison due to his experience with the Gulra a the previous leader betrayed them and then got betrayed by the enemy and evenly gave their life to save the Pladdins!

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Warning though. No matter how much you want them to, they won't.

I also see some early Miyazaki influence; that bearded guy at the beginning and end is totally Lord Yupa, from Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind.

And it looks like that's not a trailer, but a self-contained music video. I don't think there is any more.

Yeah, just a music video. But the band members actually dress up like the characters and have their names like Doctor Sung, Commander Meouch so maybe they'll comeback in another video like it.
