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.

@  Paladin : (19 July 2019 - 07:58 AM)

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.

@  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.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

Scratch that; that's insulting to honest salads. Whatever that was was the text equivalent of hamburger.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:38 AM)

Would you like some dressing to go with your word salad?

@  Paladin : (16 July 2019 - 09:34 AM)

yes; it now goes "shit piss hug *BLEEP* ^$@^ motherhuger **** turd fart encyclopedia & Socialism."

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:24 AM)

This is an American site, but isn't that unnecessarily severe language? IIRC it's one of the top four offensive pejoratives to English people

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

Couple of episodes have passed now and I've been impressed with both.

 

In Sanctuary I think it's just flat out time for Bortis to "divorce" Klyden.

 

Meanwhile, "Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow" genuinely surprised me. I'll be curious to see if there's fallout.

 

Oh there will be.  Kelly will never learn how to do that eye thing from Ed.

This week’s episode was very reminiscent of TNG’s “Second Chances” with Thomas Riker.

I’m not sure what to make of the ending. Either it was a split timeline all along or there are going to be consequences.

Well, I looked at IMDB to see how many more episodes there are this season and (Spoiler for next episode)

The show continues to be incredible, and using something as important to the show as Ed and Kelly's relationship as the crux for a season finale, I mean, this season has been characters above all and it's so strong because of it.

That was an enjoyable follow-up.  The relationship between Ed and Kelly was the catalyst, but the relationship between Isaac and the kids was the real lynchpin.  It all flowed emotionally and logically in a way that was satisfying if not terribly deep.  The space battles felt way more like Star Wars than Star Trek.

If their first plan failed their second plan would be have Dr. Finn find her ex-husband and get him to change the timeline.

Honestly, I was kinda bored by the finale. I feel the premise is way over done in sci-fi circles (and done much better on other shows) which would have been fine if they had done something original within the framework of the premise, but it felt very by-the-book and unoriginal. It wasn't bad or anything, it was just there, which in some ways is worse.


Well, Art is Art, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, water is water. And east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now you tell me what you know.

Well I enjoyed it, and disagree about its sub-standard comparison with other shows. I think it did an admirable job closing the circle, even if it kept it fairly simple (better to do it simply but right, then convoluted and wrong). Also, they have yet to be renewed for a Season 3 (something I'll be sorely disappointed by if it doesn't happen - but we are dealing with Fox here...) so I suspect they felt the need to make a reasonable finale for the series in addition to the season. If it weren't for that, I fully expected them to maybe draw out the alternate timeline into the first couple eps of next season.

Hoping for a third season, if not on Fox, maybe on Hulu or Disney+. Not sure where The Orville ended up post merger, ownership wise.

How funny it would be to have Avery Brooks play said ex.

Seth's contract is coming up for renewal, so he can ask Fox/Disney for more money.  If he is rehired, then they will negotiate what the release method will be.  Netflix, Hulu, HBO, Showtime and Amazon probably have offers for him and his IP already written, just in case Foxney does not ask him back.  He is in a bad place.  If he is rehired he may have to change his shows to match the "image" Foxney shows look like.  If he asks too much, they may not ask him back "for pay issues", but they may have an image reason to let him go anyway.  Family Guy and Orville are both not in line with the message that Disney is pushing out.  Either way, Orville will likely live on...maybe in a different house.

If Disney has said they'll keep making Deadpool, I really doubt The Orville will be so much as a blip.

There have been rumors that Disney is going to keep the Fox brand alive for things they don't want to put the Disney name on.  I doubt the content of the show is going to be a big factor is whether it keeps going or not.  Ratings and cost are far more likely to be the determining factors.

Seth himself has seemed incredibly non reactive about wither show being under Disney.  I guess he doesn't expect any changes.
