That's the exact opposite of what Facebook wants to happen, though. They're hoping you get sucked in by other content and end up spending more time on Facebook and/or making an account.

I hate that these days when you use a permalink to a Facebook post, the rest of the page's material still shows up below. Like, WTF, I only want the old way of seeing the post and nothing else!

I always took it to be a catch-all term for "person or thing of the same name" regardless of which came first.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:06 PM)

So technically it could be either way and not be wrong, but it is more apt to be Kalidor's example.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:05 PM)

one that has the same name as another; especially : one who is named after another or for whom another is named

@  Kalidor : (22 July 2017 - 09:45 PM)

I think the official meaning is that a namesake is the person or thing that is named after something else. So the USS Kalidor would be Kalidor's namesake

@  Pennpenn : (22 July 2017 - 08:30 PM)

I thought it was either?

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.

Interesting that Starscream's new design is a new body in-universe. Aligned cartoons don't mention designs changing in different series, so are probably just artistic license.

 

I'm presuming Predaking mauled him after Predacons Rising and he got rebuilt to be bigger and tougher offscreen.

 

Shadelock, Roughedge, and the Insecticon seem to be hired muscle.

 

Nice to see the Dark Star Sabre again.

Ah, okay, so this is definitely the first of the three episodes that'll be put together as a TV movie in the US.

I'd understand this odd little "season" of six episodes if this really was the end of the show, but it's clearly been proven it isn't, so it's just weird...

"Hey look, I found a prop from the last series!"

 

But honestly this was interesting, good to see the filler villains tossed aside and replaced by Starcream and some less-obvious model reuse. The Minicons are pretty fun and I'm interested where this is going. Sideswipe stuff was painful and made no sense because everyone has said nastier things about the Minicons at some point. Turns out they just hate it when you violate their personal space which is kind of ironic.

Sideswipe needs some actual development. He's all the worst attributes of cocky young heroes in action toons, which is odd because the pilot had him showcase humility.

Is Roughedge's model reused from something? It kinda looks Prime-y, and it'd be weird for just one of the mercs to have a new model, but I can't place it...

It seems odd that Dragonus and Doomitron aren't among the other Mini-Cons - it'd make sense if it were just the going-to-be-Autobots ones, but Lancelon is there.

Regardless, I assume they'll turn up in the next two episodes, along with Slipstream becoming a Weaponizer, given thatthe RID toyline isn't really in the business of doing non-show characters.

Good episode. Not notably "better than" the show has been the rest of this series and the majority of last. It's been a consistently cool, fun show and this ep was right on target and tone with exactly what it has been.

Love the inclusion on SS and his mercenaries though.


-ZacWilliam, It's interesting that Starscream's goal is revenge on Megatron, whose status quo is currently unknown. I wonder if he could return next season. (Though I think we saw Steeljaw's VA is back next season IIRC...)

I'd understand this odd little "season" of six episodes if this really was the end of the show, but it's clearly been proven it isn't, so it's just weird...

 

Is it possible that Hasbro ordered 6 episodes to come out between 2 and 3 so that they would have some form of media to advertise toys during the fall?

 

I mean, the toyline has to stick around for a whole year, but the show only takes 3 months tops ot air all of it's content early on. As a business measure it fills a gap of content.

 

I find it REALLY weird to see Starscream as the big bopping bad guy after the disgraceful existence he was in Prime, it would make sense if it were a "well against a rookie team he looks badass" but he's suddenly huge and manning people around and his confidence is genuine instead of cartoon buffoon anxiety. Like it's not the show's fault, it was probably Hasbro that forced them to use the character in first place, but it's weird to watch. 

 

I LOVE the minicons, this is easily the coolest the concept has ever been, I had a stupid smile when the electronic-horror music started playing as they posessed the Autobots. I hope this becomes a lore-thing, it's a fun idea.

 

Optimus looks colored different. He lost the black marks on his shoulders and the blue lights around his neck. Dunno why they changed that but I think it looks better, get on it Takara!

 

All in all, good episode, but that goes unsaid by this point. Hope the Scavengers aren't completely gone because I would REALLY like a retool of Bisk in those slick marine colors!

I dunno, Prime Starscream was a schmuck, but he wasn't completely incompetent or lacking confidence in himself.

I feel like he works quite well as a big threatening baddie here, if only because he's a good-'n'-proper veteran-of-the-war Decepticon, which naturally carries some weight relative to all the usual present-day RID 'Cons who are only Decepticons in, I dunno, a cultural sense? They've still never really addressed it properly, have they? At times they sort of acted like Decepticon = criminal, but then Fracture was a Decepticon effectively working for the authorities in a legimate capacity, so...

I like what they're doing with Starscream. It makes sense that big name Cons from the war would be a far more credible threat than some random thugs who apparently just get branded as Decepticons by an overzealous government.

 

But then as a whole RID hasn't charmed me, so of course I'm going to love them increasingly acknowledge the prequel that I loved.

I like how they kept Starscream's face the same and made it look as though was wearing a big bulky helmet around his skinny old head, it was a neat design choice.

 

I'm kind of hoping that we'll see more of the Scavengers, though... their role felt a bit truncated if their entire purpose was to dig up the Dark Star Saber and then get roflstomped by Starscream.


"He learned, almost too late, that man is a feeling creature and, because of it, the greatest in the universe. He learned, too late for himself, that men have to make their own way, to make their own mistakes. There can't be any gift of perfection from outside ourselves. And, when men seek such perfection, they find there's only death, fire, loss, disillusionment, the end of everything that's gone forward. Men have always sought an end to toil and misery. It can't be given; it has to be achieved. There is hope, but it has to come from inside, from man himself."
