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.

@  repowers : (13 June 2021 - 12:45 PM)

Mr. Speaker, we are for the Bass X0.

@  Nevermore : (13 June 2021 - 06:04 AM)

It's all about that Bass XD.

@  tigerhawk : (13 June 2021 - 02:16 AM)

Will altering the moons orbit in any way help.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (13 June 2021 - 01:51 AM)

Now that you have seen this Bass XO, you must send it to five other Bass XOs or BassXO will come to you in a week and then you too will be BassXO.

Yeah, I've never seen that one (bottom-right), either. Or is that supposed to be the joke somehow?

The Time Lord comparison isn't all that far-fetched. Elite political class made up mostly of dicks, but an underclass that needs more support.

Sorry, misread your post.

Anyway, that pic is from Dr Who & is of the Time Lords. Can't place the ep, as it could be from any number of the current Dr Who eps that focus on the Time Lords

Cubs win the World Series - the world ends when whatever aliens hugged up reality show we're living in ends and they initiate it's spinoff - Water World 2. Bad day to be a human being. Good day to be Kevin Costner. Until they realize he can't pilot a boat worth crap let alone recycle his pee into clean drinking water. Then it'll be a bad day when he's recast.

On a more serious note a real wake up call to us all to get over our shit and band together here in the United States as we fight the Brexit made human in Donald Trump. Don't underestimate the racists ability to get near 100% turnout among racists. 71%+ turnout right now. I imagine there's a number of younger leftists wishing they hadn't blown this off right about now. Bad day to just Tweet that you voted and not actually go because you had reservations at that awesome restaurant you also wanted to Tweet about.

The BBC is now forecasting a victory for leave.

I really didn't expect this. I expected it to be close, but ultimately I imagined the status quo would be preserved, if only because it so often is. I can't believe that percentage of the UK population is made up of xenophobes and racists... there may be a lot more discontented people out there than anyone imagined.

Personally, I'm going to write a letter to my MP and the PM's office tomorrow urging them to step up and help fill some of the void left behind by the EU in trade, and perhaps even free movement one day. You guys still have the Commonwealth to fall back on, and those ties should be renewed and strengthened in the face of this.

I'm literally jittery right now and I ain't even had my coffee. I feel like the timeline has just shifted. The pre-referendum stable era is at an end, and ahead a future of unknowns. Ooh it's so terrifying and exciting. Terriciting. It's like I've woken up to a different country to the one I went to sleep in yesterday.

What happens to Scotland now? They voted to Remain - and aboit a year ago they voted to stay part of the UK. Can't do both. Do they get a follow-up vote to make up their mind once and for all?

What happens to Ireland? British North Ireland isn't part of the EU but most of Ireland still is - are they going to have to have a hard border now?
