@  Maximus Ambus : (18 October 2019 - 04:16 PM)

Amazon in the US has pretty good benefits, though, and even the temp workers had forty hours a week to start with. Even with minimum wage, that's pretty good pay.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2019 - 01:20 AM)

Oh, the turnover rates are high here as well.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Amazon.com and .ca, on the other hand, can be pretty terrible. I know from your squawkbox posts that you guys have your issues with Amazon over there, although you're lucky to have stronger government regulations and a union there. I gather the warehouse workers in the USA and Canada have it pretty crappy, with very high turnover, close to minimum wage pay, and no unions

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:38 PM)

Amazon.de doesn't really have the same issue. I've ordered from them (and UK, FR, IT and JP) several times, and their packaging is much better

@  Nevermore : (17 October 2019 - 05:22 PM)

I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 08:29 AM)

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

@  CVReynolds : (14 October 2019 - 08:09 AM)

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 07:25 AM)

I think I hear Paul Nakauchi as her sensei.  Sounds exactly like Hanzo (Overwatch).


I don't know about making her the heroine.  She's more interesting as an enigmatic thief.

While I agree, This sorta follows some of what we seen in the 90's animated series. There is was implied she used to be a good guy, before deciding heists were more fun; but even then was always good natured and Lupin-esque, having strong morals and helping the heroes (at least one time actually joining them to deal with a worse criminal). So It doesn't feel that far fetched from the Carmen of my childhood to be on the side of angels.

I feel like there's probably more good guy in her than would be ideal, but it sure looks nice. I can't imagine it's going to reach the heights of She-Ra and Voltron but I'm keen to give it a crack.

The seeming lack of the Acme Detective Agency is a bit disheartening, but it does have potential. I'm intrigued.

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.

Join those saying not sold on the idea of her being a hero. Carmen stood out in prior takes because she was a one of a kind genuine thief that few could match wits with.


She-Ra is kinda already doing the 'I was trained by the baddies, now I use those skills to defeat them' thing.

It's not just specifically that Carmen Sandiego was the ultimate (well, for kid's morning show cartoons) enigma of a thief.


You'd think Netflix, who love themselves a moment that stands out from the crowd to sell a show, would totally keep a villain as the hero of her own show, or at least build on what the original cartoon did with it's protagonists. Making her stand out more in teaching them cunning or something.


Now she's just basically a heroine from all those YA spy novels from between the late 2000s and early 2010s.

All that really matters is we could be friends

Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego??


Right there.


She's right there the entire time.


You're watching her.


And you know everything about her.


It could still be a good show. Just not a good Carmen Sandiego show. This feels like one of those situations where they'd be better off just doing something original.

If not for "Player" being her partner, I could see this working as a season-1 arc; have Carmen slowly "going dark," until she crosses some moral event horizon, then have the second season follow Player trying to catch/redeem her.

Then do a third season from Carmen's perspective, making sense of the enigmatic/sinister things she did in S2.

The entire point of a trailer is to judge if you want to watch something.

I mean that's it. It's the opportunity for the creator or publisher to take all the good and appealing things in their product at the forfront and present an idealized view of their piece of media. If they fail at that then it's a good chance it's because that was the best they could do with what bad stuff they had to work with


I mean just about anytime there is a bad trailer for something people pull the "It's only a trailer you can't judge it" line but almost always it turns out it was a bad trailer because the thing it's a trailer for is bad
