Shockwave did it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (30 May 2020 - 12:21 AM)

I'm not in the US and at least some of the episodes seem to work for me. I don't know the actual list of places it's available, though.

@  Shockwave 75 : (29 May 2020 - 10:37 PM)

Unfortunately It seems Cyberverse is only available in the US on YouTube.

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 May 2020 - 09:19 AM)

Yes, and its ongoing.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (29 May 2020 - 01:05 AM)

Cyberverse is already officially uploaded to YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (29 May 2020 - 12:36 AM)

Spin Master is abridging current episodes of Bakugan Armored Alliance and posting the result on YouTube. Maybe Hasbro does that someday too.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 10:59 PM)

I see... :/

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 08:14 PM)

Within the US anyway. Those channels aren't easy or cheap to access in other countries, and their website often region lock content. Tubi is the only good thing on that list: largely identical (but not perfectly so. Damnit. I wanna watch COPS.) country to country and free.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:24 PM)

So yeah, Hasbro is using plenty of venues to spread exposure of their brands

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Starz currently licenses Transformers G1 and the GI Joe movie (as well as MLP specials). Netflix has more current series available.

Study shows: Holders of the title "world's oldest person" have a severely increased risk of dying.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:18 PM)

Tubi TV and Youtube both host various Hasbro cartoons. Both are freely accessed and ad supported. Any basic TV package (barring straight antenna) includes channels like USA Network, SyFy and FX, all of which regularly air the films from Transformers and GI Joe.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 06:18 PM)

I dunno what to tell you, media might be changing slowly, but at least it's still accessible. Even the folks that DON'T get one of the streaming services can watch it on the company website. It's a vehicle for the toy line after all, they need to make an effort to make it as consumable as possible.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 05:41 PM)

Well. Thats said, then.... I guess... :doh

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 04:13 PM)

As long as the the cartoons are profitable, then they'll make more. The media it's shown on is completely irrelevant. I say that as a guy whose earliest surviving memory is a big red truck turning into a big red robot.

@  ZakuConvoy : (28 May 2020 - 03:06 PM)

Might be the end of an era. With the rise of streaming, who knows if Transformers will ever be on broadcast TV again.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 11:46 AM)

3 seasons on a show is usually enough... but yeah ;-;

@  Roddie Luver : (27 May 2020 - 09:37 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 May 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I'm actually sad Cyberverse won't get another season. 2 and 3 (of what I've seen) have REALLY nailed it in being fun little actions shows, like the Sunbow series.

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Yes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 May 2020 - 12:52 PM)

I'm waiting for Animated season 4. Am I insane?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2020 - 11:22 AM)

I'm waiting for the next season to show up on netflix.

@  Sabrblade : (25 May 2020 - 10:59 AM)

Many of us have already watched the rest of the Cyberverse episodes since the whole third season aired in the UK last September.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 10:18 AM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 10:17 AM)

I just saw the 8th episode... omg

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

Already seen it online.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 09:42 PM)

Who's excited for tomorrow? The only thing that makes Monday worth it is the Cyberverse episodes .-.

I think original Venom Brock got popular when he was being gleeful and silly and would unexpectedly do cute stuff like rescue a baby from drowning or say something like does the car have a siren. After he was turned into a Lethal Protector, he was made serious/normal hero and lost the silly childishness.

I still have the mid credits scene, not for the character but for the choice. It's not like he's a wooden actor but, c'mon, someone new and fresh would have been better.

And Sony are trying to slightly muddy the waters by throwing out vague 'yeah this is in the same Marvel universe as Spiderman' and 'we'd love to have Tom Holland in our Venom sequel'.

Wow, nice numbers. I still want to see it but haven't had time. 

 

Stupid question: I never really read Venom comics except for one where Juggernaut trashes him with a telephone pole. And the Maximum Carnage video game cut scenes. Does he ACTUALLY eat people? Or brains? I always thought that was just a grossout threat, but the movie ads sure make it look like he actually eats them.

Yeah, that's the thing for me too. When he first came out, written by David Micheliniespelling, I think he just wanted to eat Peter's brains as a 'grossout threat' (also his spleen). Up until Lethal Protector, I don't think he really ate brains.

Then I find out in a succeeding mini that... he did? And it was a plot point somehow?

It would have been awesome if the symbiote had made Peter eat brains too, except he was still nice guy Peter. He'd, like, sit down at the table and tuck a napkin into his collar and use a knife and fork while M.J. looked at him in horror.

Yeah - something about the symbiote needing a chemical found in the brain that's also found in chocolate and certain sea creatures, which feeds into the whole lobster gag.

 

I think the Mac Gargan Venom was just into eating people in general, though.

 

I've always found it weird as well.  Does the symbiote just absorb the body/head/brain, or does it enter the host's digestive system via the symbiote's mouth?

The "eating brains" thing started out as just a gruesome threat. Then the writer of one of his mini series (The Hunger) thought, "Wouldn't it be neat if we followed through with that?" And spoiler, no it was not. And for a little while, the symbiote had to eat brains and/or chocolate.

 

Then the solo minis ended and Venom became a Spidey villain again around the time Howard Mackie was ruining the books. And biting/eating people was just part of his repertoire now; he took a bite out of Sandman that was apparently so big, Sandman had trouble keeping his form cohesive for months afterward. Where the symbiote put all that sand it ate,I have no idea.

 

Then there was a brief interlude where the symbiote ate cancer. Yeah, Eddie Brock was revealed to have been diagnosed with cancer right before he attempted suicide, and that's what drew the symbiote to him, and the symbiote kept him alive by feeding on the cancer. This was during Paul Jenkins' "time to show the public I'm all out of ideas" period.

 

Then the symbiote went to Gargan, by way of Millar, Bendis, and Warren Ellis. And at that point I'm sure it was just, "Oh, sure, he eats people. He's a giant monster, why wouldn't he?"

Btw, could someone explain Anti-Venom to me? It's NOT the original Venom symbiote, since that one went to Flash, but it's a reverse of Venom cuz Mister Negative touched it... So is it sentient? A clone copy of the original? Or is it all Eddie? Or a new Symbiote spawn from the original Venom?

After seeing Venom, gonna say not half bad.  Yeah the script is definitely from 2005 but it kinda works in this day and age.  Not sure what was up with the kamikaze drones but hey, good stuff.

 

Ironbite-final fight could've benefited from having the Symboites different colors other then black and gray.

Yeah, it was such a waste with the bomb drones.

Actually, there's two symbiotes unaccounted for. Supposedly they died but... yeah, right? I actually don't know the other Venom spawn other than Carnage but there were five or six that were unnamed during Lethal Protector and the toys named them.

Scream, Riot, Lash... Phage? I actually don't know their backgrounds. Carnage had... Toxin?

Who could those other two symbiotes be?

Also, was Riot in the comics black and white too?

Ok, finally saw it. Tom Hardy (Eddie) and Tom Hardy (Venom) are the entertainingly ludicrous core of a otherwise really dumb movie. Hardy really does work as that character(s).

Otherwise? 3ow this is a dull early 2000s style 'superhero' film. The plot felt incredibly generic.

Would i like to see this Venom butt heads with the Tom Holland Spidey? Yes, yes i would! But not at the expense of Sony figuring they've got the basis for a successful Spideyverse and taking Spidey back from the MCU.

I may buy this when it comes out on Bluray for the Hardy buddy comedy alone.
