Pleasant news.

@  Nevermore : (26 May 2019 - 04:06 PM)

Also, the rising stars are the Greens, especially in Germany.

@  Nevermore : (26 May 2019 - 04:06 PM)

Also, a surprising number of voters showed up to the polls, all across the EU. Which is a good sign.

@  Nevermore : (26 May 2019 - 04:05 PM)

Soooo. Another election day is over. Less stressful than the last one, at least.

@  Nevermore : (25 May 2019 - 05:09 PM)

Oooookay, Babylon Berlin. That's gotta be Plot Convenient News Urgent Edition or something.

Don't worry, though. Ang Lee's Hulk has made it, so if physical media goes this year we can all die happy

Everybody knows the most bishie thing about any bishie is his exposed sinew.

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2019 - 10:04 PM)

*looks up the humanoid slivers* ...really? People were calling those bishies?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Have they made a sliver planeswalker yet?

@  RichardT1977 : (23 May 2019 - 10:29 AM)

"DECOMPOSE!"

@  Paladin : (23 May 2019 - 06:29 AM)

will they next evolve into Inhumanoids?

@  Ashley : (23 May 2019 - 02:42 AM)

the original slivers were spikey monsters. then the evolved into humanoids. now they're back to spikey bug monsters.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2019 - 10:42 PM)

Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

They haven't necessarily looped yet. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:18 AM)

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

Ever since I went to Japan last year, I have friend who dread watching anime with me due to that...

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Not hugely, but I am the type to notice places once I have been there and say "Hey, I've been there!"

I swear I read Dreamworks basically committed to doing the show as 4 13 episode blocks, even if Netflix proved to not be on board the full way. So the whole show is seemingly in the can already.

 

I think its likely a fair chunk of the future seasons are in production while the upcoming season is likely in final stages, such as sound, music and having the voice tracks added on, I suspect future seasons are likely being animated currently or at least storyboarded, if they are going for a 52 ep count that is.

Wow! They're celebrating the BEST princess ever! So cool!

I can't believe THIS was original Entrapta? Haha! I also forgot that Imp can shape shift like Hordak.

 

Evil Horde leader:  "Stop that!  That's not nice!"

 

I also like how he just . . . put his face on the front of the tank.  Gotta advertise his brand.  I feel like if he existed in the modern day he'd be a Youtuber.  "Be sure to like and subscribe," Hordak snarls as he razes your town.

"WE have a princess problem!" That about the best take away from that trailer, I'm not super excited for this but I will watch it at my own pace, the reason why I'm not so excited is how the first season ended, it just felt like it was more of a MEH end, the princesses have united but where is the stakes? I mean Voltron Legendary Defender its first season ended on a cliffhanger where they escape the cluches of Zarkon only to be hit by Haggar's magic and then scattered across the universe so the heroes fate was up in the air and you want to know what happens next. With She-ra its pretty much, good guys have won and the bad guys driven off, princesses have united, nothing more, story over, sort of, what seemed to be the driving force of the series was to unite the princesses and Aorda and Catra relationship. I think there isn't a lot of room for growth in the second season or to drive the story forwards, it could well be that Mattel having seen the scripts and animation, just think this is not worth the time and effort to make a toy line and instead are focusing on (aside from stay afloat) the live action Masters of the Universe movie that said to be in the works and producing products for that.

Well I rewatched the first season before season 2 hits later this month, my favourte characters are Entrapta & Catra, Entrapta because she has a no fear yet extreme curiousty personalty makes her enjoyable to watch, while Catra just really grows on ya and I kind of found myself rooting for her as she goes from being in Adora's shadow to taking Adora's rank and stuff before taking over Shadow Weaver's procession, within the time frame of about a week if Swift Wind is to believed.

 

Having rewatched the series, things I sort of didn't really pay attention to the first time around or really notice:

Glimmer seems to have a crush on Bow, thou I'm not keen on Bow's personalty, it feels to far out to be taken seriously

The resistance seems awfully short handed if Bow is reporting what the spies are saying and despite some soldiers around, there seems to be none in the Battle of Bright Moon, but it is kind of made out to seem like this war has been raging for a long time with the forest being the only thing stopping the Horde forces from reaching Bright moon

 

As I watched, one question that kept popping up in my head in regards to Shadow Weaver, why is she so obessed with Adora and why was she always over looking Catra and the other cadets?

 

Overall, its not bad but I do feel that they could of done more in some of the early eps, I mean the story doesn't really get going until the All Princess Ball after the first couple of eps, thou I still kept thinking about a confrontation between Shadow Weaver and Adora, in some ways Shadow Weaver is sort of Adora's mother (one of the worse mothers ever). The first season does have a few mysteries yet to be resolved, like Hordak's motivations and goals, then there is Adora's past or rather her connection to She-ra and the First ones.

 

One thing I kind of wonder, will Entrapta build a weapon that empowers Catra and give her similar abbilties to She-ra, I know Catra is skillful and fully capable of doing things Adora can't do but I just think she could use a weapon to battle on par with She-ra, that and combined with her skills would make her a very dangerous foe to Adora.

Yeah, I'd like to see more of Shadow Weaver's side, as she was the mother to Adora.

Catra getting a power up... I hope it's not technological but something akin to discovering that she's also a Princess of Power. Somehow.

Entrapta is still the best Princess.

I mean they pretty much said Adora is genetically linked to the Ancients that stopped the Horde the first time (which is why she can be She-Ra)..   Maybe Shadow Weaver knew that and hoped to use Adora to get all that power for herself.

Its also stated that the line was broken and for a thousand years there was no She-ra and Adora is the first one in a thousand years, so something happened with her predecessor, thou its kind of hinted something to do with attachments that was her downfall, I guess that's why Light Hope was telling Adora to let go of Catra.

I just figured that the Ancients are actually old Eternians that visited Etheria in the past.  Adora, because of her lineage, would be able to access it, especially if King Greyskull or someone like him, is in canon of the show.

It could be Empress Greyskull? At this point we don't exactly know what Greyskull is in this series let alone who, but speculation is GOOD!!

Went to watch season 2...only to discover a family in Ecuador had stolen my Netflix account. One assumed my profile and renamed it (so now Netflix thinks I like porn, horror movies and racist documentaries) and there are 4 other profiles added.

 

Netflix customer service luckily resolved it quickly but what a nasty thing to do. Hoping I can delete the offending content from my profile since you can't just outright delete the primary profile.

I felt the season was just to short, that final ep, I think that could end up being banned in some countries because it depics a same sex couple with a child, while I see nothing seriously wrong with that, other parts of the world, its rather questionable to say the least in their eyes, so when the series gets to Kids TV, I can see that being banned unless its overhauled to make one of the two a female.

 

Anyway, I think its safe to say that much of us like the bad girls trio of Catra, Entrapta & Scorpia, they just seem better than the heroes

 

My thoughts on Hordak's possible origins and motives:

 

Spoiler

 

I hope when the next season comes, they give us some insight into Adora's origins and maybe her predacessor, how did she loose control of her powers and cause havoc?

I'm hoping that this is something akin to what they did with Voltron - half a season now, the other half in a couple months.
