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)

@  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)

Poe had a great design. I imagine a certain white mage DeSpell will have a hand in restoring him during the finale, possibly as a happy-ish ending for Magica. Speaking of, I cant remember if Magica kept the amulet from that episode, or how she got green again if not.

Read it. I'm puzzled on their phrase of their version of Penumbra. Was she around during the original show? Or the comics?

Someone who seemed shortchanged is Quackpfaster the librarian. She seemed like a wealth of magical lore and a scrappy fighter but we never really see her in action.

I'm pretty sure they just forgot to put another comma in there and that "our versions of" referred specifically to "Darkwing and Gosalyn".

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.

So, this is really interesting.

 

https://tv.avclub.co...-for-1846452455

 

 

Really, who didn’t watch Disney’s well-received DuckTales revival and think, “Why is this a TV show, instead of a parody podcast mimicking the tone and cadences of long-running radio staple This American Life?” Now, at last, that Ira Glass-minded hypothetical can finally have its day in the sun, as Disney announced that, although DuckTales is done as a TV series as of its big series finale next week, it’s also set to revive itself once again, this time as a Danny Pudi-fronted podcast titled, well, This Duckberg Life.

 
And by Danny Pudi, we really mean his character, Huey Duck, who will be hosting the seven-part scripted podcast in his best Glass cadences. Given that the DuckTales cast already included some serious podcasting MVPs—including Pudi’s co-nephews Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan—we’re cautiously excited for this, even if we probably can’t expect any Solo Bolos or Time Bobby shenanigans to break out. The series itself is set to feature pretty much the entirety of the DuckTales cast, including Scwartz, Moynihan, Beck Bennett, David Tennant, Kate Micucci, Toks Olagundoye, Jim Rash, Josh Brener, certified Disney Legend Tony “Donald Duck” Anselmo, and, of course, character actress Margot Martindale as Ma Beagle, who will presumably somehow transition this into the first-ever Emmy win for a performance on a podcast.

I'm calling it. This show is a fine example of a reboot that is superior to the original. Having re-watched the original and its movie within recent years, this show was just a million times more enjoyable and better written all around.
