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.

@  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.

@  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)

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

TvTropes is a fan-edited site and the cartoon area is composed entirely of people nerdy enough to care about the minor details of children's cartoons.
It's like a Wiki but with even less quality control due to too much stuff to keep track of.

That is a breeding ground for genuinely the stupidest and more clueless group of people you could possibly get. Just ignore it.

 

Agreed.  I remember one time there in the section on Crapsack World, someone decided to put an entry in about how it applied to one of Lady Gaga's videos.  Said person also put in Lady Gaga entries into a ton of other topics,  I think it has been cleaned up by now, but it was very annoying at the time.

I don't know if this has been mentioned yet, but I think the biggest clue that this is divergent from previous Aligned TV series is the fact that the characters have noses.

Characters ahd noses sometimes in Prime and the games and even comics tied to Prime. Not really a sign of anything!

Just saw Episode 5 on the CN App, it was fun but Slipstream's actress has... well, she has an evil laugh that doesn't exactly scare anyone.

At least two RID-specific molds (Slipstream and Stormshot) have noses too for some reason.

This has nothing to do with obviously-a-new-continuity Cyberverse. I just think it's weird.

(Why Slipstream but not Jetstorm?!)

Stormshot was atleast designed by a Hasbro guy personally, so you can chalk it up to "guy that isnt from the show's art staff doesn't totally get the show's art style" much like Oil Slick from TFA or all the non-movie Movie toys.

But Slipstream is anybody's guess.

Check your cable providers and your CN apps and whatnot, 'cause Xfinity two new eps available, both OnDemand via cable box and on their website: Episode 5, "Whiteout," which premieres on Cartoon Network tomorrow, and episode 6, "Megatron Is My Hero," which debuts next week.

it's not immediately apparent but Slipstream has a completely different head design from Nova Storm.

 

pKCx81G.png

 

tumblr_inline_pftbmrhYvl1vfvbji_1280.png

 

She has a broader jaw, and lacks the markings around her optics that Nova Storm has.

 

Speaking of eye markings, each of the seekers have different ones. Thundercracker's draw down from the bottom of his eyes and separate his cheeks entirely from his face, while Acid Storm's are points like Nova Storm's, except they point down from the inner corners of his eyes as opposed to the outer as it does with her's.

 

I dunno. It's a small thing but it's nice how they're using little touches like this to diversify the Seekers.

Looks like the CN ap has added the Whiteout episode but not the Megatron one.

-ZacWilliam, I like that they made Slipstream the unit leader on Earth and didn't jump right to Starscream.

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.

All TFA dubs I saw had to use sped-up audio to match Blurr's talking style and it ended up sounding horrible, so maybe this was done for the sake of international audience.
