So, now that Game of Thrones is over, when can we get back to The Dragon Prince?

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:19 AM)

Like, half of them nowadays are montages of tweet screencaps from the writer's inbox

@  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 watched Death Wish 5 last night and clearly recognized Toronto streets; didn't pull me out of Bronson's 1-man war on drugs or fashion or whatever it was that pissed him off that time

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Maybe you should have installed macOS in your house instead.

@  Noideaforaname : (19 May 2019 - 04:40 PM)

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:26 PM)

Bingo. The big polls don't tell people what's actually happening because that doesn't sell.

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 AM)

IIRC there are good polls but data is easily manipulated so they give people what they want to hear

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 10:58 AM)

The only way to get people interested in politics is to make into reality TV. So they lie to do it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:38 AM)

Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

@  Sean Whitmore : (18 May 2019 - 11:53 PM)

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 06:45 AM)

You know, this election is what has finally broken me of any confidence at any point of pre-polling data. I mean, it's always been sketchy, but this is just... aaaargh!

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 06:08 AM)

I was going to make an Auspol election thread in P&R, but the outcome so far has made me feel physically ill.

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 03:16 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.

Lara Croft Sandiego. Known to her friends as Carmen.


Don't fight it, it's coming for you, running at ya / It's only this moment, don't care what comes after
Your fever dream, can't you see it getting closer / Just surrender 'cause you feel the feeling taking over
It's fire, it's freedom, it's flooding open / It's a preacher in the pulpit and you'll find devotion
There's something breaking at the brick of every wall, it's holding All that you know
So tell me do you wanna go?

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
