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)

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.

Can't say I'm familiar with any of 'em.
On a side note - wish they kept the original designs. Giving them 1950's/60's UPA cartoon look with aged comic book texture for backgrounds is so senseless.

EDIT: Wait... DAVID TENNANT?! Bloody hell, failed to register it upon first viewing. The hair and beard threw me off. O.o (Yeah, yeah, the name's displayed onscreen, but still...)

David Tennant as Uncle Scrooge is pretty inspired casting, I can already hear it in my head.

I recognize most of the others from SNL and various sitcoms, but there's nobody who I'm like, "OMG, I love their voice".

Beck Bennett is an amazing choice for Launchpad, I can really see that working.

Tennant... I love Doctor Who and I love DuckTales but I'm not sure about that mix. Alan Young's a hard act to follow and this is not the direction I'd have gone in.

Still, fingers crossed. I wonder whether the new show will cling so heavily to Barks or whether we'll get something hip and modern and edgy.

They got an actual Scottish person to play him. I think it'll work out fine.

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Tennant does have a range of voices he can do. He's read for a number of audiobooks, and has done several voices for them. I think he's read the audiobooks for the How to Train your Dragon books (which the movies were based on) as well as some Doctor Who books. My Audible app will let me post a clip, so after I download one of my Who books I'll get you a clip.

Bah, picked a bit of a clunker to get a clip from, but here's one clip

http://a.co/0Dw4amN
It's from the Last Voyage Doctor Who book.

Here's something better from Dead Air

Can't say I was clamoring for a Duck Tales reboot but I'll give it a chance, wouldn't be the first reboot I wound up liking but had never really thought about before. And anything that might help an actual dream of the far superior (according to 12 year old Wheels) Darkwing Duck getting a reboot is something I'll support.

 

Of course then we'll need a TailSpin revival. :thumbsup

I don't doubt Tennant's talent. Mostly I just wish they'd got someone older (Young was in his late sixties when DuckTales began). I'm sure Tennant will sell it.

Really there's no way the casting could satisfy me here, because I just love Alan Young so much.

I hope we at least get a cameo here and there from the likes of Russi Taylor. It may well not be that sort of project though.

I'd have been happy with one person voicing the boys, but I assume we're still living in that post-Quack Pack world where it's been decided that a nephew-centric show needs more differentiation.

Speaking as twin: I can tell you that identical siblings generally go out of their way to NOT look like each other. I wear different styles of clothes, different hair and facial hair, and speak differently than my brother. It makes perfect sense for triplets to do the same.

Given we only recently lost the original Unca Scrooge, I assume casting David is partly so the new voice is someone they can get a few decades of consistency out of.

He seems to have taken to voice acting partly because that 'Tennant takes America' thing never panned out.

I'd be surprised if we see Tennant playing the role outside of this particular show, but that would certainly be cool. This kind of casting doesn't really look like that Allwine/Anselmo/Farmer "keep them locked up in the basement for thirty years" sort of deal. Not that Scrooge sees a lot of action anyway.
