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.

@  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)

@  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.

Here in Germany, the price you see is the price you pay, tax included.

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

Not sure what to think of the designs based on this. Not wowing me yet, but neither did any of the other Star Wars animation, and I ended up loving those.

Here's hoping this series gets me to like the Sequel Era. Not the movies, I mean the just-OT-again setting.

 

(although it took me a looooong while to really appreciate CW and Rebels, and this series is gonna start off with me asking "but what about that cliffhanger?"; I'm fine with waiting but for the love of god don't pull a "did I ever tell you about how Zuko found his mother?")

Hate that cel shading.

Looks ultra generic content wise. But I'm sure I'll be chastised for thinking that because a certain someone will insist their kids will love it...

Coupled with the character designs it looks like someone wanted hand-drawn animation, but the producers insisted on CGI for Reasons, and didn't tell the directors.

Like it's torn between stiff CG and traditional Western-style squash-and-stretch.

Here's the thing about Cell shading and Star Wars. Cell shading by its very nature makes everything bright and colorful, Star Wars is by nature a very dirty and dingy Universe. 

 

To me it doesn't really gel with the world.

Ok, having watched the trailer, I can say I am NOT impressed, the style does not fit the Star Wars Universe, it looks like it belongs more to Ironman Armoured Adventures, its to bright and the animation simply doesn't fit into the Star Wars Universe, I can't see this lasting very long, on top of the fact its set before Force Awakens which doesn't give me any real hope for a good story. Personally, I rather they go and follow some Bounty Hunters than some rookie pilot who seems in the trailer get asigned to figure out who is apart of the First Order and who not!

On the first watch the cell shaded animation style did not work great for me. On subsequent watches (on TV instead of a tiny phone) I got used to it and I'm mostly ok with it. Although it's not as nice and pretty as Rebels was at the end. Hopefully it'll grow visually as it goes on.

Content wise it looks good. Ideally after Luke and Anakin, and Rowan and Ezra I would have prefered a cartoon with someone who was not a teenage human male as the main character, but that disappointment aside it looks like it has potential to be some cool Stars Wars.

-ZacWilliam, definitely gonna be tuning it in and checking it out.

It's ugly, but most CG shows are. It may still attain greatness. 

 

ETA: I mean, is there anyone in the history of Star Wars with a track record as consistent as Dave Filoni?

Im so confused about the extreme tonal change since The Clone Wars series since the same guy is in charge.

Rebels picked up after Ashoka joined. Ill give this a chance at least
