Multiplaying as in "playing with other people" or multiplaying as in "6 WoW accounts running at the same time"?

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.

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)

because it sucked.

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

Heroes was cancelled twice.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 06:33 AM)

The song's official name is "Holding Out for a Hero".

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 June 2021 - 12:54 AM)

That's a long time to wait for a sandwich.

@  Maruten : (16 June 2021 - 07:13 PM)

Lucky there's a hero arriving in July.

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

I think I've heard "I Need a Hero" more times this past week than I have in the past several years.

@  tigerhawk : (16 June 2021 - 12:41 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.

@  Nevermore : (16 June 2021 - 10:42 AM)

Here in Germany, the price you see is the price you pay, tax included.

@  Nevermore : (16 June 2021 - 10:42 AM)

I always find it weaird hearing that stores in the US don't initially already taxes in their prices.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 June 2021 - 04:31 PM)

I thought that was definitely implied and has been outright confirmed by various episodes of Clone Wars and Rebels.

Well, yeah, I know.  I guess I didn't finish my thought.  The rest of my thought is that Guardians of the Whills are probably another kind of Force-user.  Not fans of Jedi.  Their own thing.

My understanding is that the Guardians of the Whills weren't Jedi, but were linked to them - they weren't strong enough to use the Force in the same way as a Jedi Knight, but they did have a measure of affinity for it.

I did notice the difference between Chirruts force use and a Jedi - Chirrut can sense the force, but the Jedi can manipulate it. Basically Chirrut is extremely force sensitive but cannot control the powers, which give him the Sense Danger abilities but not force move or things like that.

I really like him. I'd watch a series just about him and Baze.

I'm amazed at Comic Con one of the signing guests is the little girl who looks up when the Death Star appears.

I'd hope her career gains a more prolific role so her parents aren't milking that for years.

The novelization shows Raddus believing that Mon Cala is a likely target for the Death Star. i wish they had worked that into dialog.

Which goes all the way back to the old EU; as a planet that has openly declared rebellion, Mon Cala is the next target in line after the Main Rebel Base.

It's just that Mon Cala is in the Outer Rim, and even more remote than Dantooine.

I just been watching the film on DVD and thinking about it, I think about the first half an hour could of been cut and replaced with an openning scroll because not a great deal happens in that time prieod that couldn't be covered in the rest of the film. The film does have one of the best space battles put to screen, yet I kind of question, why the heck the writers decided to off all of the rebel charaters, of course one thing that is apparent is the Empire's stupidy in regards to protection of the planetary shield, one base making the planet hard to acress, also the controls for the com tower dish being seperate from part that sends the signals. Another thing I noticed, a lot of what transpired on the planet, is the fault of the person who imformed the rebels that they got into the imperial base, it seemed pretty obvious that impriel security on the planet was pretty lack luster, if only that signal not been sent so soon, they could of got the plans, got out, called for backup, rebels arrive, surprise attack to cover the escape of the Rouge one squad, they make their escape back to their base, they can find the weakness of the Death Star, then make sensible plans to blow it up.
