To be honest they did ignore big chunks of the stuff from the movie. Also never had the balls to portray Jesus as a rogue Goa'uld (yeah yeah I know shut up).

@  Echowarrior : (20 March 2019 - 08:57 PM)

The original Stargate movie was okay for what it was. SG1 was a decent show that probably lasted too long. Atlantis was a decent show that could've lasted a little longer. Universe...gah. There were exactly two characters on that show that I liked, and neither was enough to help it in my mind.

@  Xellos : (20 March 2019 - 04:05 PM)

I got into SG1 right as season 8 ended. The Stargates were the last shows that I would make sure to watch every week. Since Universe ended, I really have not been addicted to any live action series.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 March 2019 - 03:12 PM)

The concept of the film had enormous potential, and the rest was literally writers one upping each other when they didn't know if they were going to get renewed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 March 2019 - 02:40 PM)

Haven't got as far as Universe yet, but I finished SG-1 on Prime last week and I'm part of the way through Atlantis, now. Amazing how long it went on, just based off a single film

@  Maximus Ambus : (20 March 2019 - 02:36 PM)

Teal'c PI never happened but Teengate did.

@  Cybersnark : (20 March 2019 - 02:33 PM)

Indeed.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 March 2019 - 01:56 PM)

Yeah, SG1 is fairly and uniformely good throught out it's entire run. Atlantis isn't quite as good, but has quite a few good episodes, and universe wasn't a bad take on the more dramatic and outlandish aspects of the universe.

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 March 2019 - 01:31 PM)

Man, I should've watched the Stargate TV shows years ago; they're a lot better than I ever expected

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 March 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Well, if the merchant benefited from it there's no harm, I guess. Some people just aren't comfortable dealing with foreign currencies; although admittedly those usually aren't the types who'll go to a place like Estonia.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 March 2019 - 05:51 PM)

I gather this was an ad hoc sale with no machine around. Or the U.S.-Americans in this story were so entitled they didn't bother getting any euros for their trip. One hears about the latter phenomenon often enough.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 March 2019 - 05:46 PM)

Easier to just use a credit card with no foreign currency conversion fee. There are plenty to choose from in the US

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 March 2019 - 05:40 PM)

Joke's on them because the USD-EUR exchange rate gave him a lot more.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 March 2019 - 05:39 PM)

Just read an anecdote on Facebook from an Estonian guy who once accepted U.S. dollars on par from some 'Mericans who didn't change their currency when traveling to another country.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 March 2019 - 11:54 PM)

Paddy is the diminutive of Pádraig. Patty belongs on a burger.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 March 2019 - 11:53 PM)

PSA to all: the abbreviated name is Paddy's Day or Saint Paddy's Day.

Another round of U.S.-Americans throwing around Disneyfied Irish symbolism for the sake of getting smashed.

Hooray, it is Lá Fhéile Pádraig / Saint Patrick's Day once again.

I'd heard of the KS to dub it but only long after it was a thing. I assume that's the dub that Netflix is using as well? I didn't realize until looking now that the KS and the Netflix deal happened in the same year. 

The Kickstarter was for that, yeah.  Blurays were a kickstarter exclusive backer reward at a high enough tier-- Ankama had no interest in mass releasing DVD or bluray as they felt the real money was getting Wakfu on streaming services.

I found them funny with little knowledge of international football, but this is a show that rather likes making a joke out of the pointlessness of its own sidequests. Which is to say, it's pretty shameless about its episodic elements.

Wakfu is absolutely delightful, and yeah - I never got around to looking at my blurays, either. Or trying out the little card game, whoops. I did take a look at the dub when it first dropped, and while a lot of it seemed okay, Ruel's dub voice was just painfully flat and generic, so I'll definitely stick with the original french.

 

That said, I had no idea S3 was actually happening - I've wondered where the heck they were gonna go after the ending for the OVAs. God, just add that to all the good media to consume coming out in April.

 

Looks like Netflix is missing two of the prequel/side OVAs, though - Ogrest, the Legend and Noximilien the Clockmaker. They both give some background to two of the antagonists, Ogrest's especially is neat since his name gets used as a throwaway curse. Both are animated by different studios than Ankama - Ogrest's is by Studio Ghibli, not sure about Nox's, though. It's got a very out-there scratchy art style.

Just the OVA set, The Quest for the Six Eliatrope Dofus - it's three episodes that take place a few years after S2, but there's also some considerable time passed between it and S3.

The time frame is a bit iffy. The special is six years after season two. Then it's a fuzzy few years after that. Yugo says he has been searching for six months. But I'm not sure how long they waited until he started the search. Adeline's brother got married sometime between that special and season three.

Well, I know a few people were keeping up with this franchise here, so I might as well let you in on some news.  I didn't hear about this until today, when I just randomly decided to look up any season 4 news, myself.

 

Unfortunately, it's almost all bad news.

 

Apparently, Wakfu didn't do very well on Netflix, and Netflix isn't interested in funding the show anymore.  It also sounds like one of the original French channels that WAS funding the show is shutting down.  So...seasons 4 and 5 probably aren't happening as originally imagined.  

 

The...sorta good news is that Ankama MIGHT make the rest of the Wakfu story a free webcomic.  They need to tell the rest of the story to lead up to their new game (now called Waven).  I have no idea if there's enough of a fanbase in the west left to even guarantee a fan-translation of a webcomic, but it might be something.  Seriously, these year-plus long waits are NOT helping keep the franchise alive *sigh*.  I don't think that manga that was supposed to bridge the OVAs and Season 3 ever even finished.  *HEAVY SIGH*

 

Sounds like they plan to release Waven in late 2020, so we'll probably have to wait and see what they'll actually end up doing until sometime next year.  *FINAL SIGH*

 

BUT, just so it's not all bad news, here's an interesting interview with the creator of Wakfu, Tot.  It goes over what's happening with Season 4, an idea for a Oropo side-story, and the original idea for Evangelyne's plot.  Make sure to turn on the closed captions for the english subtitles:
