What's your favorite cheese? I'm not sure, but it's hard to beat muenster.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:10 PM)

Man I wish IDW could do a season 2.5 with a few writers like Michael Charles Hill or Donald F Glut or Paul Davids involved.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 04:33 PM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:05 AM)

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

I don't think we even really need to see Krypton. I'd start with Clark growing up in Kansas, thinking he's normal, and follow him through the development of his powers. There've been enough alternate takes on Krypton that it could actually work as a mystery; is this the pre-Crisis utopia, the sterile science world, or the relic of a fallen empire? Brainiac was there, and he tempts Clark with the knowledge of what he really is.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:12 AM)

First, a Krypton film, ending with baby Kal-El being found on Earth.  Then Supe's early career film, establishing his values... and if Jonothan Kent needs to die, it happens because of something like a heart attack while Clark is savnig folks on the other side of the world.  After we know Clark minimizes property damage and never kills, have Zod & Company show up and force him to make tough choices.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Man of Steel seems like someone came up with a Superman trilogy and then the execs said "We've got to catch up to Marvel, make it one film!".  I don't mean that based on the film's actual pacing, but because various story beats make more sense to me if they weren't all squished together.

@  Cybersnark : (03 December 2019 - 07:44 PM)

I've been wanting to write a Superman movie trilogy for years; "Man of Steel" (featuring a Terminator-like Brainiac) was going to be first, with "Last Son of Krypton" (featuring the Eradicator) as the sequel and "Man of Tomorrow" (in which Luthor makes his face-heel turn) as the conclusion. Thanks to Snyder I have to re-arrange my titles.

@  Nevermore : (03 December 2019 - 06:15 PM)

I still wish "Man of Steel" had instead been an adaptation of both the John Byrne miniseries of the same name and the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale miniseries "Superman For All Seasons".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2019 - 04:42 PM)

A take I just read: Man of Steel is shot with such a lack of lighting that it is easier to discern what is going on in a porn film.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 December 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Making Soylant is harder then it looks, it's not like the movies, you have to keep whacking and hacking at the ingredient, it'll scream and fight, maybe bite but eventually it will go down.

@  Paladin : (03 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

varies from person to person.

@  Benbot : (03 December 2019 - 11:34 AM)

@  CORVUS : (03 December 2019 - 11:17 AM)

@  unluckiness : (03 December 2019 - 02:49 AM)

@  Patch : (02 December 2019 - 05:52 PM)

@Benbot Do they have a soy-free version? Like maybe just "Lent?"

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 02:03 PM)

Just occurred to me 'Autobot' Megatron happened in Target 2006.

Recently, I found out that this show has been brought to Blu-ray. I have been wanting it for a while now to complete my Timmverse collection, but I just never picked it up for one reason or another. However, the series has gone on a massive sale recently, and I picked it up for $16. It is back ordered on Amazon, but it should be here in a couple weeks. When it arrives, I plan on watching it, and giving each episode a little review here.

You're in for a treat.  It doesn't suffer from what I call "Kamen Rider Syndrome" where every episode is stretched out for two for some god damned reason and it's pretty well tightly written and animated.  The story arcs that dominate the show are there and you'll be able to pick up on the comic book inspirations.  Just, don't go into this expecting a lot of Batman stuff.

I actually feel it was better for that, as it made the writer look to other, less obvious places for plots.


It's a Newcomic (apparently)

I often wonder what the show might've been like if that restriction had never existed. Honestly I do wish that were the case; I really don't think anything of value would've been lost if "The Batman" was never made.

You know I haven't seen any of The Batman other than the movie Batman vs Dracula. I mainly got it because it had exclusive figurines in the set, and I am addicted to getting those little figures that DC is packing in with their movies.

Do iiit!

There's a few eeeh eps (say, Hawk and Dove, the visit to Apokalips) but the single eps are beyond better than the first season of Justice League. JLU s1 is mostly stand alone stuff but things get EPIC in season 2! Get hyped!

You would need to watch choice eps in Justice League s2. A Better World is essential.

Oh and watch the best direct to DVD DC movie, Crisis on Two Earths, which Dwayne McDuffy meant as a bridging movie between JL s2 and JLU s1. Explains how the tower was built, which guys were recruited first, and the invisible jet.

I actually have Crisis on Two Earths, but it has been a while since i watched it. Dwayne McDuffy was a great writer though, so I guess I need to watch it again.

 

I thought that justice league star crossed was the movie that bridged JL and JLU.

I rewatched it recently and the end of the Cadmus arc disappointed me. It's this big huge story that has Superman struggling with morality and the public perception of him and it ends with two of his greatest enemies.

And then Epilogue comes along with Amanda Waller and she goes

"You know who's great? Batman."

Season 3 is also a lot weaker than the first two.

"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."

Ah Justice League, I thought that was a great show, when it came along I never heard of the league or some of its charaters, Batman was kind of my window into the show as I saw Batman The Animated Series, it was after I saw Justice League and the power of the internet that I saw The Animated Series follow up, the New Batman Adventures and when I saw that series, I thought it sucked compared to the preivous one and it was meant to be a sequel, clearly someone screwed up in the writing department because I cannot recall a single good story in that series and things were a confusing mess, with Nightwing being around, it was like, Who the F*** is this guy? Also the animation was nowhere near as great as the previous series. While I know better now, I always liked Batman as a charater but I have my standards, I didn't like the look of Brave & the Bold, so I chose not to watch that because it looked like something from a by gone era of animation and Batman was wearing blue instead of black.

 

Anyway, with Justice League, I was vaguely aware of Superman as a charater but the charaters like Green Lantern, Marshan Man Hunter, Hawk girl, I didn't know existed, the Flash I was very vaugely aware of thanks to the live action TV show, but I knew nothing about him but then I didn't really understand the Flash back then as I was still a kid at least in mind and I was completely unawares of the existances of these big name charaters, as for Wonder woman, I recall seeing a little of that early TV show but again I didn't understand what I was seeing, same goes for Supergirl movie, I never understood what I was seeing aside from a girl dressed up a bit like Superman. Anyway, when Justice League appeared on TV, it kind of hooked me but I did miss a few eps during its airring so when Unlimited appeared, I became pretty confused as to many of these charaters that were on screen thou Green Arrow certianly caught my attention as he flirted with Black Carnay but again thanks to the internet I've been able to see all of the eps again and see those I missed. I do say Justice League is a great show, it started off in general in a pretty good manner, with a alien invasion for its first story but the second story being about the Green Lantern surpposely commited a crime of genoside, drew me in more thou other stories were not as rememberable as those two, at least to me. Still after all these years, I still think Batman is Superior to Superman as a idea for a hero, sure Superman has all of the powers but Batman uses gaggets and brains to deal with his foes and despite his lack of powers, I think he is the most dangerous member of the league, for he is unpretictable compared to the others thou one story that connects to the Beyond series, shows desptie everything, he is one of the most compasionate people around.

 

Kids TV today looks like its filled with rubbish, they need real culture back in the form of some of the classics such as Batman the Animated series and Justice League
