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.

It's the least destructive option, anyway. I've already voted, so other than encouraging others to vote (And I have!) I can't really do much more anymore. My weekend is going to be spent moving my brother, and everyone is so sick of the election that canvassing might get some one shot.

Well, we can still enjoy the little things. The leader of the PQ lost his home riding. A riding which has been PQ basically since day 1. He lost it to the underdogs QS. He's all but confirmed he's going to resign. And then there's the fact that the PQ are now down to 10 seats, the same number as those underdogs.

 

But still, I hugging called it. Like a year ago even. And I really can't wait to see how badly they hug things up. I want to know what the federals reaction to his idea of testing immigrants on quebec values will be.

From the sounds of it, a lot of English speaking and urban voters stayed home.

Apathy like this is going to continue to be a growing problem in elections as long as these greedy, short-sighted parties (and by this I'm referring to every single party in Canada) continue to ignore, or outright abuse, the middle class and make voters feel like it doesn't matter who wins, because the will simply doesn't exist to change the status quo.

Even I often wonder why I should care (though I've always voted), when I'm constantly reading articles about how Canada is a favorite destination of foreign money laundering due to our lax regulations and data collection, or how Revenue Canada aggressively pursues single mothers to justify the child care benefits they receive while outright ignoring hundreds of millions in offshore money, the lack of competition in the Canadian retail sector, and countless other ways the wealthy are continuously enriched at the expense of the rest of us.

Yeah, montreal especially is taken for granted by the liberals specifically because everything but the east end and rosemont/la petit patrie is a lock for them. Or is supposed to be, anyway. And even then, it doesn't really matter who you vote for, it'll end in the same bullshit in different flavours. Hey, let's make some predictions! Social housing and benefits will see cuts, hospitals and schools will see cuts, infrastructure and maintenance will see cuts. No one will be able to find where the cut money goes.

Well, we're right back into it. Legault is already pushing his secular charter which will require all people in positions of authority or civil service to remove items of religious signifigance. So... hijabs, kippas, turbans, kirpans, and any other symbols. Of course, it'll be "les quebecois" enforcing these rules, so, you know, there won't be any problems with crosses and such.

 

Hey, this reminds me of that all shit with marois and the quebec charter of values a few years back.

 

On top of this: legault wants to get rid of the schools boards. Which means the english population would lose it's ability to control it's own schools: which means english would no longer be taught in the province.

 

Hmmm, charter of value, hugging with schools: I think we might be starring down another year of protests and riots.
