In my Marvel comic canon the second wave of special teams were handpicked active robots whose experience would theoretically make more stable combiners, the Combaticons came from Cybertron, the Protectobots were imprinted from crystals explaining both Onslauhghts ancestry and First Aid's experience.

@  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.

Another day, another bigoted law is proposed by people who are so afraid of someone with a penis using the girl's restroom. (Because let's be honest, I'm pretty sure most of these people aren't even aware that trans men exist)

 

I mean it's not like bathrooms have stalls or anything.

The complementary bills (SB 513 and HB 2737) declare in no uncertain terms that transgender students are going to harm other students just by using the same facility alongside them. “Allowing students to use restrooms, locker rooms and showers that are reserved for students of a different sex will create potential embarrassment, shame, and psychological injury to students,” they read.

NO.

 

hug YOU.

 

The only guaranteed embarassment, shame, and psychological injury here is the kind you're inflicting upon transgender teenagers.

 

I am so hugging tired of this bullshit. These people can hug right off.

So, in the name of preventing sexual harassment and incidents, they've given people an incentive to closely monitor what other people are doing in the bathroom?

Some good news for Michigan...

 

 

Michigan’s State Board of Education has drafted a guidance that would push the state’s schools to allow all students, regardless of parental or doctoral input, to choose their gender, name, pronouns, and bathrooms.

 

Spearheaded by board president John C. Austin and signed by state superintendent Brian Whiston, the guidance informs Michigan public schools that only the students themselves–i.e. not their parents or doctors–can determine what their individual gender identities are.

 

“The responsibility for determining a student’s gender identity rests with the student. Outside confirmation from medical or mental health professionals, or documentation of legal changes, is not needed,” the guidance states.

 

So of course Republicans want to stop it

 

 

The Michigan Department of Education has generated a GOP backlash and complaints of “social engineering” by recommending that public schools adopt transgender-friendly policies but refrain from unilaterally telling parents if students identify with a gender they didn’t have at birth.

 

A House appropriations subcommittee on Wednesday stripped from a budget bill all travel and per-diem funding for the Democrat-dominated State Board of Education, a move the Republican chairman called “a message” to members who will consider the draft recommendation on May 10.

 

 

Sen. Patrick Colbeck, R-Canton, in a Tuesday speech on the Senate floor, argued that the policy recommendations would force teachers to “monitor who is going into which bathroom” rather than focus on “core” teaching activities. He called the proposal “social engineering.”

 

“It is time to take a stand against further encroachment and erosion of the values that made us an exceptional nation,” he said.

What values? The ones about treating minorities like human garbage?

The Michigan school guidance has some good points BUT it could also be abused without some moderation.

For example, allowing a student to pick a name more in line with their identified gender sounds fine. Allowing every student to pick their own names -even when they DON'T conflict with their gender - is not the greatest of ideas as they might go with something ridiculous or even offensive. Imagine a cis or trans male insisting on being called "Lord Pussylick" and the need for moderation regarding the student's choice of identity becomes obvious.

Naturally, I don't think that the student's will on these matters will be held as absolute. The school should have the final say to prevent anyone from making a mockery of this policy.

-SS (I'm sure the actual policy will be rather thorough and explicit on what will and won't be allowed.)

Longer term, we really need to get over the segregated bathrooms in general. That's uncomfortable for a lot of people, but discomfort is inevitable for everyone either way, and also inevitable in the attempt to break with any arbitrary nonsense tradition.

Shorter term, it's really amazing to me how shamelessly the Republican party is willing to deny reality in all forms, the sheer spite of it.
Shouldn't gravity be doing something?

Yeah, bathroom segregation does have a lot of issues the moment you acknowledge the actual complexities of gender and sex. Because no matter what you do, probably everyone is going to wind up in a bathroom at some point with people that are sexually attracted to them.
