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.

How long until IDW puts out an Optimus Pride Month comic?

@  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.

@  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.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 06:33 AM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 June 2021 - 05:38 PM)

@  tigerhawk : (16 June 2021 - 12:41 PM)

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

@  wonko the sane? : (16 June 2021 - 11:19 AM)

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

@  Nevermore : (16 June 2021 - 10:42 AM)

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.

Finished rewatching Airbender fully for the first time in about 10 years (would catch repeats on Nickelodeon in between now then).

Started rewatching Korra. Haven't researched this since it first aired. Man this first season is intense, very dark, and generally real world frightening. I love it.

After having rewatched both series (The Last Airbender over a few months and Korra over a couple of weeks), I am now convinced that I prefer Korra over Avatar (blasphemy I know). I think Korra is stronger overall. Though things definitely take a bit of a nosedive quality wise in the last season and Avatar's finale is far more epic.

I do wish Nickelodeon would have let them do more with Korrasami though.

What ever happened to that guy?

Well, he Varricked himself because some girl Zhu Lid him!

If I had to make an analogy, ATLA vs. Korra to me is like the best chicken tender meal ever made vs. a 5-star gastropub experience.  ATLA overall comes off as extremely safe and conventional, but executed with the greatest amount of love and care possible.  Its aesthetic, worldbuilding, and animation quality are exquisite, but it does very little to push the boundaries of what children's television can accomplish, thematically.

 

Korra on the other hand is a risk-taker.  It takes ingredients from its predecessor, but remixes them in new and exciting ways.  It takes extreme leaps of faith that don't always pay off 100%, but it gives the experience more character overall for even trying in the first place.

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.

IIRC that was their original plan pre-Shyamalan to do a series of movies to wrap up the various plot points left unresolved at the end of Book 3 like Zuko's mom, but also Sokka's search for boomerang and spacesword.

...Are we counting Japan on that?

 

Or, even Ireland?

 

(Okay, fine, that was on Apple TV, but that was 2020 being 2020.  It would have gotten a limited theatrical run, otherwise, probably).

 

But, yes, a movie sounds fun.  Kind of wonder if it'll be a direct Avatar sequel with the old cast, Korra's cast, some sort of crossover between the two, a prequel, a brand new Avatar altogether (next up should be...Earth?), or a adaptation of one of the comics.  

 

Honestly?  I'm kind of pulling for a brand new Avatar.  It'd be fun to see how the setting evolves from where Korra left off.
