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)

I remain optimistic about this, I think the Prime Wars Trilogy suffered from mutable bad ideas, the first of which was the late arrival of the first installment, when the CW figures were being replaced by Titans Returns figures. While the animation had some desent quailty to it, it had the halmarks of being rushed in places, same goes for the story and the treatment of the characters, example, the ONLY titan master, in Titans Return, didn't really do what they were meant to do, become a head, but I guess that is likely down to some lack of information on the writters part or someone said they were like a Power Master when really they were more Headmasters. The stop motion adverts for CW were actually better than the show, but in general, the story of that trilogy could of benefited from 20 min eps and not a broken up movie form and could of really explored the world of Cybertron and the titan masters actually transforming.

 

Anyway, I think whatever Netflix & Hasbro create will likely make use of the second part of the trilogy desgins as toys and likely begin with 13 eps, hopefully 20 min long or so, I hope they tell the story of a world at war but from someone who on the frontlines more, not BB or OP but just a normal soldier, maybe have OP be something of a legend and rarely seen on the battlefield by the soldier while on the con side, we have a similar thing but Megatron is seen to them as the freedom fighter. A guy can dream but I doult it would be like that, it likely have Optimus front and centre as per normal and a non speaking BB!

As long as anyone involved with the Prime Trilogy is involved, I don't have high hopes.  But maybe it'll turn out to be okay.

I don't know.  The Prime Wars Trilogy was not that great, but I still like it better than what I have seen on RWBY, and with Roster Teeth involved, I dunno. 

 

I mean, I have given RWBY a few chances, as I love seeing anime VAs at conventions, and a number of them are now in it and have commented how they like it.  Now, it may be because they have another job, and you never badmouth a job, but I did give early and newer episodes a try and...  I still like Prime Wars as a lesser of the two evils.

Easton also wrote the Season 2 episode of Rescue Bots that reintroduced Dr. Morocco to the show's storyline.

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.

Isnt Brandon Easton the guy who wrote that awful TF:TM adaption? Then used that as a springboard to write MASK to a merciful death?

It's taking two terrible writers and adding a third of equal or lesser quality.

This new show promises "a new animation look and style that presents the Transformers like you've never seen them before."

 

What, are they gonna look like doodles now? Is it gonna be claymation?

The "all-new animation style" is going to be 2D animation created by doing charcoal rubbings of the actual Siege toys. It's why they've got all that sculpted detail!

If its Netflix, I'm sure the animation is going to be pretty desent, thou the style is another matter, I dislike how poor the animation for the main TF line has become, after Prime, the quailty just dropped dramatically and it went furier with Cyberverse, I just don't feel any love in Cyberverse, I seen the first ep, its neither good or bad, but it just lacks heart, I mean G1 animation might be considered outdated these days, its still superior to the cheep rubbish their using.

So, an actual show, or just more five-minute clips that can be pieced together into a disjointed movie?
Also, just skimming, but I think I saw "Backstroke of the West meets Transformers" and Brett Easton Ellis. So that's a thing in my head now.
