'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.

Lucky there's a hero arriving in July.

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

Thanks to Earthrise I can recreate the end of Return of Optimus Prime part 1.

I wish they would do something like that here: but then it would become obvious in which provinces you're getting gouged.

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.

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.

I didn't even try this time.

@  Nevermore : (12 June 2021 - 03:43 AM)

8ass X÷ has hijacked this conversation.

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 03:37 AM)

Its Bass X0. I named myself after my three favourite Mega Man characters - Bass, X and Zero. I did consider going with Vile Bass X0, but that would have been going too far.

@  repowers : (11 June 2021 - 11:29 PM)

Bass XO has been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty.

@  Echowarrior : (11 June 2021 - 09:25 PM)

Do not taunt Bass XO.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 June 2021 - 09:02 PM)

Please consult a technician before using Bass XO. Do not operate Bass XO while consuming alcohol.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 June 2021 - 04:48 PM)

Nine out of ten doctors recommend Bass XO. The last doctor is on my list.

@  Dekafox : (11 June 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Bass XO is available at these fine retailers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 June 2021 - 02:01 AM)

Bass XO is not to be confused with Bay Sexo.

@  Fenix Twilight : (10 June 2021 - 08:38 PM)

It's good to be back, after that outage I think I'll try to post more.

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 June 2021 - 12:16 PM)

I think Hasbro Pulse is broken. Dang Star Wars nerds!

@  tigerhawk : (10 June 2021 - 04:46 AM)

When I googled 'space bridge' I was disappointed. Maybe in a hundred years.

Bass XO is backward compatible with the Sega Master System.

@  Donocropolis : (09 June 2021 - 05:37 AM)

Bass XO has 9" long, dagger-like teeth and a 12,000 lb. bite force

@  repowers : (08 June 2021 - 07:26 PM)

Bass XO doesn't feel pain. He can't be reasoned with!

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.

Detective Huey is pretty cool, but he didn't actually solve the case with his detective work. It was a fluke.

The intro sound effect for the reporter sounds legit, haha

Flying sharks is funny yet also scary.

In the right episode order, though, is the question.

I really hope that date is global because I don't think s3 has aired here at all. 

 

We watched the first few eps via Those Fancy Mechanisms, where you get cool extra bonuses like flipped visuals or sped-up audio or terrible cropping, but that's not how I want my Ducktales to be.

That was... Too wholesome. And normal. Nothing made me hang on to my tail. Sal was a great guy tho. Too nice. I thought he was voiced by Fenton's voice actor but I listened to Donald reading the cast and it wasn't. Anyhow, great story, very sweet but isn't very adventurous or exciting. It's like a children's story.

Also reveals that Launchpad is 31.

I was never into new Launchpad as compared to classic Launchpad. I think they just made new Launchpad really dumb? Classic was funny dumb? Dunno if that makes sense.

Launchpad's driver's license stated he was born in 1987. So 31 makes sense if you figure the show takes place in 2017 and 2018.

I guess this was suppose to a Mother's Day ep?

Why would Scrooge keep that in his hat? Very irresponsible.

Featherfest was a Firefest thing, right? I wouldn't even have gotten it if I didn't watch a documentary before.

Made it through the final season after an annoyingly delayed drop here.

It was pretty amazing. Several times through the season, I loudly gasped in shock like I was a cartoon character or something. I must have looked like a crazy person, but a lot of the Disney Afternoon references just got me, man.

Spoiler


Anyway. What a great show. It will be missed.

I think the biggest reaction from me in the finale was at the "who do you think told... about the...".

I think I actually called him a bastard out loud, haha.

The second one was when theme song started playing from the other show, haha.

On Launchpad's hero moment, I think it could have been done better somehow if he played to his strengths, instead of using someone else's stuff. Or at least maybe he could have bumbled his way thru with a combination. Like, I dunno, used the fallen gas gun to disorient everybody ala get everyone to crash into everyone else then use an extending arm to tangle everyone up?

I think the original announcement confirmed that there would be seven. Which seems like too few really, but "too few" is clearly Disney's whole thing when it comes to DT17. 

 

Fero is right that Launchpad would have been better served in the finale with a victory that was more his own. 

 

Reminded to be cranky again that the nephews don't say "Unca". I reluctantly learned to tolerate a lot of messing around with nephew conventions from this show, but losing "unca" is just too much!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Also I have said this before but man, whoever led the character designs really deserves credit for the ducks' beaks. So gracefully simplified but still so expressive and still so evocative of the classic beak anatomy. There's a level of brilliance there that I can barely comprehend.

Rereading the thread as part of my mourning process.

 

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.

 

I think generally it didn't go nearly as close to Barks as the original series did, like - no straight up adaptations, though obviously there is still a lot of influence spilling in. 

 

 

I wonder if they can get John Simms as Flintheart Glomgold.


They should get someone South African instead of going for jokes based on old roles.

 

I wish they had! The faux-Scottish Glomgold is something I wasn't fond of, though it's easy to forgive because their ridiculous take on him is so entertaining.

 

...THEY HAVE TO GET CATHERINE TATE TO VOICE MAGICA DE SPELL!

 

witchcraft

 

... Mrs. Beakley looks like she's now the kind of maid that keeps a reel of piano wire tucked up her sleeve

 

Also shockingly spot on.
