Do you need a criminal lawyer or a criminal, lawyer.

I don't suppose the allspark has any criminal lawyers from Georgia. ;P

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

It seems like, with these kind of things, anything not TF-specific is either in an existing thread or just not discussed since they're not part of something deemed important enough to get its own thread already.

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Yeah, but it's for Transformers specifically

@  Gryllid : (19 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

There is. It's called "SDCC 2019 thread"

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:24 PM)

no general SDCC thread?

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:08 PM)

I never even bothered to see it.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2019 - 10:30 AM)

O never hated it, the whole thing was an Indiana Jones movie. I didn't care for the CGI, but that's just nature of the beast.

sidebar- has enough time passed that we can stop irrationally hating "Crystal Skull" yet?

@  Telly : (18 July 2019 - 09:18 PM)

after 38 years and i dont know how many viewings, today is the first time i noticed indiana jones doesnt use a revolver in the bar fight in raiders...

@  Kalidor : (18 July 2019 - 05:33 PM)

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

@  Shrug : (16 July 2019 - 06:07 PM)

It's absurd how happy I am that a post of mine made the front page of Reddit.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2019 - 05:46 PM)

Aww, shucks.

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:45 PM)

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 05:43 PM)

You guys aren't being very nice. You're supposed to tell me I did "good, really good!"

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2019 - 05:40 PM)

It's techno-organic corn

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:26 PM)

We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

Also note that Tyler is the same actress who played the Krill woman (who was named Teleya, making for an easy sound-shift) they befriended and betrayed when Ed and Gordon infiltrated that Krill ship.

Maybe a coincidence, or maybe they're shamelessly stealing from the other sci-fi show that has an alien double-agent named "Tyler."

 

Oooh, good catch.

ALL of the letters of TELEYA are found within JANEL TYLER.

In other words, JANEL TYLER is an anagram of TELEYA + JLNR.

Well, I certainly understand now why last night's episode wasn't shown on Sunday night!

 

But, yeah, it was good, too. Awkward at times, funny though, all the same. Exterior shots were absolutely beautiful.

 

Plus it's a good reminder that this isn't an ideal world and not everyone can always be saved (unlike what was often seen on Star Trek).


I'm not a man of many words.  When I do have something to say, though, I'll try and make it worth your while!

I need to open up my season 1 set and watch the eps I missed (I didn't start until around ep 5, but they re-ran ep 1), given the importance this week of the S1 ep about Bortas's child.

Turns out this was the episode held back from season 1.

I would never have figured Doctor Finn was experienced at counselling given her own family, I'd have thought there'd be protocols for this incident.

At this point, I'm hoping we get more exploration of the Krill, Kaylon and Xelayan societies.

Yeah. I continue to be impressed with the show's ability to be both futuristic and more grounded. TNG gave us "Broccoli" and his silly, fantasy shenanigans on the holodeck. The Orville took the same concept and couched it in real world dangers of porn addiction, and gives a tacit warning about what the future might hold where things like VR porn are concerned.  As someone who struggles with it myself, it was uncomfortable to watch but handled well.

You really do. It may have been one of the first episodes to make one realize they were trying for more than Family Guy in Space. There had been hints before, and it was still a surface discussion, but it was there.

It's unfortunate Halston Sage left but it's understandable, we don't have any details why she has though there's plenty of speculation going around, most of it attacking Seth Macfarlane who is alleged to have dated her. I think it might have been due to the make up the character required, it's not unknown for actors to leave when they have to apply make up for so long. Brent Strait who played Rev Bem in Andromeda left halfway through season 2 as it made him ill, the character next appeared and 'evolved' in some season three episode but never came back. Virginia Hey played Zahn in Farscape for two years before leaving about four episodes into season three, she got one more appearance in season four and that was it.

They left the possibility for her to return without using time travel. Was really afraid they would Tasha Yar her when the rumors started circulating that she was leaving.

Loved that they had two former Starfleet doctors in one episode.

Almost like another doctor on another (not similar) show.  She was around for one season, left for a bit, returned, and has been collecting royalties since...

1) Gordon shouldn't call his family trash in front of his dad.

 

2) Will that new security chief use a gun or does he prefer a knife?
