I'd say it's more of a crushing sensation than a sucking one.

They may have had it earlier than that; Risa uses weather control tech to maintain its resort-style climate, and it was shown to already be established in the late 22nd century

@  wonko the sane? : (16 December 2018 - 03:13 PM)

By next gen they had weather control on earth, and were even in the process of upgrading the geologic stability network. So yeah: habitat maintenance on the next level.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2018 - 02:38 PM)

I imagine World War III managed to decimate enough of the industrial economies that they inadvertently managed to exceed their carbon reduction targets from the Paris Accords, and then by the time Earth got back on its feet after the development of warp drive and first contact with the Vulcans, electricity was able to be generated cleanly and much more efficiently

@  The Doctor Who : (16 December 2018 - 01:48 PM)

I mean, they have futuristic weather control satellites and everything, I would imagine that global warming is a thing of the past in Trek.

@  unluckiness : (16 December 2018 - 09:39 AM)

How's that unrealistic? Not even the ocean wants it.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 December 2018 - 01:35 AM)

@  Pennpenn : (15 December 2018 - 09:44 PM)

Does the PotP voyager Starscream's chest stick out so far in combiner torso mode? It's kinda weird how much Elita Infinite's back seems so empty up top but very... protruding lower down.

@  Pennpenn : (15 December 2018 - 01:26 AM)

Trying to fit Elita One's combiner head back into her torso is a pain in the arse (and not just because her torso becomes her arse in combiner torso mode)

It's almost as if the people with the most money have funneled money into making the systems of government and law serve their purposes in retaining their wealth, no matter how harmful, counterintuitive, or just flat out evil they have to be. Huh.

@  Rycochet : (14 December 2018 - 02:49 PM)

@  Rycochet : (14 December 2018 - 02:45 PM)

Some states have laws against that, but they're in a tiny minority. There are plenty of cases where rich people have gone after journalists and their employers for accurate reporting, lost, but still left their targets saddled with hundreds of thousands ofdollars in legal fees and no hope of recovering anyof the money because a partisan judge has decreed that while they're innocent, they're not innocent enough.

@  Rycochet : (14 December 2018 - 02:43 PM)

The american system is as bad, there are plenty of cases of billionaires or corporations filing libel suits purely to kill reporting or activisim against their activities. SLAPP suits. Strategic Lawsuits against public participation.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 December 2018 - 12:48 PM)

e.g. British libel laws place the burden of proof on the accuser, which is how we wind up with Emirati billionaires suing Western journalists in British courts

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 December 2018 - 12:46 PM)

Never visited the UK in my life, but reading about British laws in the news gives me the vibe that British culture inherently protects the wealthy and established.

@  Anonymous X : (14 December 2018 - 12:39 PM)

Sounds a lot better than labour law in the UK. It's bare minimum standards here, you don't get any employment rights as such in the first two years of employment (and the employer can arbitrarily reset the clock). Unions are limited to a few public sector professions as well; in the private sector, there basically aren't any unions.

@  Nevermore : (13 December 2018 - 07:25 PM)

Bonus points if your company has a works council. The employer is required by law to hear the works council prior to giving you your termination. The works council cannot prevent your termination if the employer really insists on going through with it, but if the employer failed to hear the works council, didn't wait for the works council to respond, or failed to tell the works council *all* the relevant details, the termination is legally invalid due to a technicality.

@  Nevermore : (13 December 2018 - 07:23 PM)

The employer has to tell you the reason for your termination if you explicitly ask for it, and if you can prove the reason is factually incorrect, the employer may lose the case.

@  Nevermore : (13 December 2018 - 07:21 PM)

For all its flaws, I really like a lot about our German labor law. Here, if you're under a permanent contract and have been continually employed for over six months, employers can only fire you for reasons that fall into one of three categories defined by law, and the burden of proof is on the employer's side in a potential court case.

@  Paladin : (13 December 2018 - 05:38 PM)

in brightest day or blackest night?

@  Bass X0 : (13 December 2018 - 05:25 PM)

Finally we get a Greenlight toy.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 December 2018 - 04:58 PM)

See.. In America they would just fire you for having the wrong color shoes on or some BS reason.

@  Nevermore : (13 December 2018 - 07:13 AM)

And hey, in addition to the clocked extra hours, I earned an additional 50% overtime bonus.

@  Nevermore : (13 December 2018 - 07:12 AM)

This past Saturday, in full expectance of a strike this week, I worked a full extra shift. They assigned me and some of the other volunteers to a totally pointless task, while some ladies were seriously sweeping the floor. When asked how long I was planning to stay, I smiled and said "a full shift!"

@  Nevermore : (13 December 2018 - 07:10 AM)

"You were asking for volunteers, right? I'm staying." - "But we have no more work for you!" - "I don't see how that's *my* problem..."

@  Nevermore : (13 December 2018 - 07:10 AM)

It's possible to use that to troll the employer a little, though... Once they allow voluntary overtime, they cannot backtrack from that. So once you notice you're rapidly running out of work, you just decide to do overtime out of spite.

@  Nevermore : (13 December 2018 - 07:08 AM)

Now if there's *no* strike... people eventually run out of work.

@  Nevermore : (13 December 2018 - 07:07 AM)

Amazon is prepared for strikes... they just hire way too many people for the Christmas season. If there's a strike, they still have enough (albeit inexperienced) workers.

@  Steevy Maximus : (12 December 2018 - 07:49 PM)

Not one bit :p

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 December 2018 - 06:46 PM)

@Steevy Did you read TM2's post? "Amazon.de".

@  Paladin : (12 December 2018 - 06:37 PM)

just wait until the European economy collapses up its Brexit-shaped asshole.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 December 2018 - 06:22 PM)

Probably not a ton of people, no. Although I'd say I order from one European Amazon site once every month or two, myself. Usually UK, but sometimes Germany as well. France and Italy a couple times, too. There are some good Blu-Ray releases that are exclusive to Europe

@  Steevy Maximus : (12 December 2018 - 06:00 PM)

I'm not sure a European strike is going to impact North American customers.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 December 2018 - 04:13 PM)

Well, somebody must've been working 'cuz I had an order in with Amazon.de that got shipped out the other day

@  Echowarrior : (12 December 2018 - 01:29 PM)

Amazon.

@  Benbot : (12 December 2018 - 01:01 PM)

AOL?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2018 - 08:22 PM)

Also, strike has been extended. So no working for 50 minutes. Would have been fun, though.

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2018 - 08:21 PM)

I said numerous times already that I work at that big American corporation that begins with "A".

@  Waspinator : (11 December 2018 - 07:21 PM)

The turkeys... The answer is always the Turkeys.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (11 December 2018 - 02:05 PM)

Who would be the heroes in this situation?

@  Waspinator : (11 December 2018 - 02:03 PM)

When I die, I want my body to be part of a puzzle solution. Like, have my skeleton pointing at the clue the heroes are supposed to find.

I'm also a big fan of "Never Fear", "Heart of Ice", and "Almost Got 'Im".

 

 

Really, I could keep going for a while, a whole lot of BTAS is amazing.

Almost Got Im. Its the closest thing I got to an episode that focuses 100% on the villain; planning, setup and execution of the caper and only have Batman appear just to put a stop to it.

There were so many great ones that's really hard to narrow down. The series is getting released on Blu-ray this year, maybe I'll revisit this thread after a little HD marathon.

 

A Bullet For Bullock is underrated, though.

Really hard for me to narrow it down. Just so many great episodes in that series.

 

I can't wait to get BTAS on Blu-ray. I'm hoping Batman Beyond and the rest of the DCAU toons get the Blu-ray treatment. :)

I was 10 years old when this show first aired and i recalled being a Batman fan since 1988 hearing about a Batman movie in the works in comicscene/Starlog magazine (remember those? i have them collected in bags) and seeing the teaser in theaters. I even got my first Batman comic at 6 going on 7 being Gotham by Gaslight and collected the comics since and saw 1989's movie in theaters 5 times and watched/taped episodes of the 60's show plus had merchandise of 1989's movie that year.

 

I even had a long time dream and wish for an animated show as it came true when i read in decembers issues of those magazines as i couldn't wait until 92 for Batman Returns and the animated show. I saw Batman Returns 4 times in theaters that year in 92 and i watched/taped the animated show religiously even the WB seasons as a teen.

 

Timm made one hell of a masterpiece of a show.

I know I might be in a minority here, but I actually loved Tyger Tyger. But then, I have a thing for cat anthros.

 

Great episode! has that Island of Dr Moreau, Zombie Holocaust aka Dr Butcher MD, Freaked (remember that funny 1993 comedy with Randy Quaid as a mad scientist who turned Alex Winter and people into mutant freaks?), Resident Evil games (the mutant and scientist aspects), The Fly, Tiny Toons Hare Raising Night episode and Tezuka's Bagi The Monster of Mighty Nature. 

 

Selina Kyle as a cat-girl in that episode was *wolf whistle* eh? some guys who dig Catwoman would have to admit it, i always did thought so since i was 10 years old when i saw/taped that episode on Fox and i adored Catwoman since i was 7 as she is my fave comic female character babe since seeing the 60s show with Julie Newmar even reading the comics and renting the 60's show at age 7 and seeing Batman Returns in theaters at age 10 to seeing her on the show. I just adored her when i was a kid and teen no matter how she looked in the comics (except Miller's sinead o Conner lookalike), TAS (blonde or brunette or mutated cat-girl), the 60s show (Newmar and Meriwther) with the 1966 movie/Returns versions especially Ivy, Harley, Red Claw and Zantanna. Yet some would have to admit mutated cat-girl Selina was on par with other old school feline girl beauties like Cleo from Heathcliff, Tigra from Marvel comics, Pam and Polly from that Eek the Cat episode with the two lovely cat lady witches, Bagi from Tezuka's Bagi the monster of mighty nature,  Kitten kaboodle from the Talespin Star is Torn episode, M'ress from Star Trek, Callie Briggs with the Swat Kats girls, Felicia from Darkstalkers, Kit Mambo the lioness woman from Animalympics, Jenny on Bucky O'Hare, Mirage on Aladdin and even Cheetara/Pumarya on Thundercats, LOL.

 

I'll second "Growing Pains".

 

I'm also a big fan of "Never Fear", "Heart of Ice", and "Almost Got 'Im".

 

 

Really, I could keep going for a while, a whole lot of BTAS is amazing.

 

 

Growing Pains was a tragic episode, i felt bad for Robin when i was a teen as i think Tim and Annie should had been together as a couple and she would had been raised by Bruce or someone else to be a superheroine known as Claygirl but ended in tragedy.

 

At least there's fanfiction where she lives and becomes a superheroine.

 

Heart of Ice earned that emmy well 25 years ago and before TAS, i always thought Mr Freeze was a cheesy campy villain until the show made me feel for him and rethink him. Great animation, writing and all that makes it a masterpiece.

 

There were so many great ones that's really hard to narrow down. The series is getting released on Blu-ray this year, maybe I'll revisit this thread after a little HD marathon.

 

A Bullet For Bullock is underrated, though.

 

 

I believe they might announce it at the major comic con and for a thanksgiving release.

 

A Bullet for Bullock was quite damned good and has a great score plus one of my childhood favorite actors Jeffrey Jones in it as the voice of the apartment manager.

 

Over the Edge isn't just my favorite BTAS episode, it's my most favorite Batman thing ever.

 

I still can't believe they did it.

Yes that was a great mind twist of an episode i always enjoyed.

I hated almost all the redesigns after the move to the WB.

 

Except Scarecrow. I had no problem with the first design and the second was pretty cool and I had no issue with the voice actor. That said, turning him into a really evil zombie-looking Scarecrow voiced by Jeffrey freakin' Combs was hard to argue with.

Tyger, Tyger was just ok as an episode but it blew my mind when Batman said the rhyme at the end... and didnt make 'symmetry' rhyme 'eye'.

Tiger tiger burning bright
In the forest of the night
What (fearful?) hand or eye
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry

(From memory. I can't remember that one word)

If you want to know what happened to Tygrus after, he appeared in the comic. The werewolf guy went to his island to ask for mutation help and they ended up rescuing Catwoman after she was kidnapped by Dorian the mutation doc and a controlled Manbat.

He and the werewolf were stuck fighting in a fire with Manbat. After that, I don't think they ever appear again. Manbat resurfaced with an individual Manbat personality that isn't Langstrom's.
