Stupid, delicious Ben & Jerry's.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 06:42 PM)

Ahh. I remember watching Bubblegum Crisis 2020 or whatever.

@  Dekafox : (21 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

Next you'll say they have Dominion Tank Police and L.I.L.Y.Cat

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Bubblegum Crisis, going by several shouts down.

@  Telly : (21 February 2020 - 02:31 PM)

harlock is on tubi as well. not dubbed though :(

@  Rhinox42 : (21 February 2020 - 01:19 PM)

Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 10:31 PM)

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

Oh boy, here we go.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2020 - 10:26 PM)

Vegan meat needs bacon

@  Paladin : (18 February 2020 - 08:43 PM)

vegan meat must taste delicious. they're grass-fed and regularly exercised....

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 03:59 PM)

Just use the hose.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 03:52 PM)

Ask bing. It'll be a FAR more effective answer.

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

Google, how do I get those durned kids off my lawn?

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

SAmsung has you covered. Exploding phones.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Modern problems require modern solutions.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

@  Rycochet : (16 February 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Watching early episodes of the x-files will make you feel super old once you start to notice the techology they use, and the technology they lack.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Absurdly overrated show, IMHO. I gave up too early, perhaps, because I got fed up with the use of Kryptonite as a bestower-of-superpowers (something it's never done elsewhere).

"No tights, no flights", actually.

 

Plus, I think it's been said that Welling himself didn't want to wear the Superman suit out of fear of becoming typecast like previous Superman actors have been. Notice how all shots of Clark as Superman in the final episode were either all extreme close ups of just Welling's face or faraway shots of a fully CGI Superman that clearly wasn't Welling. The only shot in the entire episode of Welling wearing any of the suit was just the final shot of him doing the iconic "pull-button-shirt-open-to-reveal-S-shield-underneath" pose, in which he was only wearing the suit's shirt piece instead of the whole thing.

It did lead to a lot of tedious freak-of-the-week nonsense. But Welling, Rosenbaum, Durance, Hartley, O'Toole and Schneider. John Glover! A great cast and the definitive live action DC universe for me. I mean - it's basically just, like, Dawson's Creek with superpowers, but... that works for me.

There were alot of things i liked in smallville, certain plots or special episodes (the one with the JSA , as cheesey as it is, just makes me smile), Rosenbaum as Lex, the Sex Cult Chicks sorta Nancy Drew gimmick...even the fun "Justice League" stuff...but for whatever reason I just never cared if I saw the show, or missed an episode...

 

BUT, knowing that theres now officially 3 Supermans in COIE? im dead seriously all giggly and squee-ey, like a pre-teen girl reading Tiger Beat, or something or whatever, hehe =]

 

Now Lynda Carter, like Brandon Routh, will hopefully be pulling double duty...I just hope this whole 5 part ball of awesome is just that, awesome =]

On a related note, we previously got a hint of Black Lightning's universe being affiliated with the Arrowverse back in the Flash episode where Nora was being trained by Thawne in the future. At one point, she crashed into a tailor shop delivery truck labeled "Gambi & Son".

Actually, that's more of a general DC comics reference.  There's a family in DC comics that makes the costumes for a bunch of super-folk (heroes and villains)

 

The one from the Flash is probably referencing Paul Gambi:

https://en.wikipedia...wiki/Paul_Gambi

 

And the one from Black Lightning is Peter Gambi, his brother:

https://en.wikipedia...iki/Peter_Gambi

 

...But you're still right, it WAS a hint the shows were connected (even though interviews and the like emphasized that they weren't)

https://en.wikipedia..._the_Arrowverse

 

I think you are out of date, Sabrblade. CW staff already stated a while back, to no fan's surprise, that Black Lightning takes place separately from Earth-1 and Earth-38. ZakuConvoy is accurate to classify those as cross-continuity thematic Easter eggs, not a same-continuity direct connection.

 

Incredibly, it looks like KEVIN HUGGING CONROY will finally get a live-action turn!!!

Announced on Twitter, which I won't even bother trying to link.

 

OH WOW! There is a returning pan-franchise actor whom I was not expecting.

 

Heh.   I wonder if "older Batman" means basically a Batman Beyond-ish Bruce Wayne?

 

With both the previous seasons of Arrow and The Flash spotlighting characters from the future, and backdoor previewing Batwoman, I wonder if a future Arrowverse story will feature a next-generation team-up of Blackstar, XS, and Batman Beyond.
