It seems like, with these kind of things, anything not TF-specific is either in an existing thread or just not discussed since they're not part of something deemed important enough to get its own thread already.

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Yeah, but it's for Transformers specifically

@  Gryllid : (19 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

There is. It's called "SDCC 2019 thread"

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:24 PM)

no general SDCC thread?

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:08 PM)

I never even bothered to see it.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2019 - 10:30 AM)

O never hated it, the whole thing was an Indiana Jones movie. I didn't care for the CGI, but that's just nature of the beast.

@  Telly : (18 July 2019 - 09:18 PM)

after 38 years and i dont know how many viewings, today is the first time i noticed indiana jones doesnt use a revolver in the bar fight in raiders...

@  Kalidor : (18 July 2019 - 05:33 PM)

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

Scratch that; that's insulting to honest salads. Whatever that was was the text equivalent of hamburger.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:38 AM)

Would you like some dressing to go with your word salad?

@  Paladin : (16 July 2019 - 09:34 AM)

yes; it now goes "shit piss hug *BLEEP* ^$@^ motherhuger **** turd fart encyclopedia & Socialism."

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:24 AM)

This is an American site, but isn't that unnecessarily severe language? IIRC it's one of the top four offensive pejoratives to English people

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

So, as a parent of an almost two year old and and 3.5 year old, we watch a lot of cartoons. And we watch a lot of them over and over again.

 

PJ Masks

True

Octonauts

Spirit

Peppa Pig

 

And for the most part they are okay, but having them dominate the TV all the time gets a bit vexing at times. Can you recommend any good kid shows for me to put on?

 

I watch Ducktales, Sarah and Duck, Mister Rodgers Neighborhood, and Sesame Street with them now, and those are neat breaks from the junk that they normally like to watch.

My two year old is obsessed with Sesame Street, and Netflix has its British spinoff The Furchester Hotel.  It's a decent change of pace.

Well I mean I guess it depends on what you want to be stuck watching as well.

 

I mean I could easily suggest My Little Pony Friendship is Magic due to them liking Spirit, they may like that, but how much do you REALLY want to get stuck watching pony?

Shaun the sheep. Great show for younger kids as there is no talking, everything is picked up from gestures and context. And it's so well made that I would watch it even if I didn't have a kid.

Also Yo Gabba Gabba. Great music on that one.

Not sure if any of these are on Netflix or not, but I recommend the following little kids shows (featuring both old and current):

 

Transformers: Rescue Bots

Transformers: Rescue Bots Academy

Mickey and the Roadster Racers

Arthur

Clifford the Big Red Dog

DragonTales

Reading Rainbow

Between the Lions

The early seasons of Thomas and Friends

The original version of Muppet Babies (you'll have to find this one on streaming sites like KimCartoon and WatchCartoonOnline)

 

I'd even recommend some of the older Disney shows like DuckTales, Goof Troop, Gummi Bears, Timon and Pumbaa, Mickey Mouse Works, and House of Mouse. I know the first two are on Amazon Video (DuckTales in SD, Goof Troop in HD), the others you may have to find on streaming sites (I know that Gummi Bears is on YouTube in good quality).

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.

Tom & Jerry, on ocason

CBBC Babies in general is suitable for toddlers

Wallace & Gromit, pretty much anything from Aardman Animations, if its colourful and noisy, it can certainly distract

Thou I do also recomend Thomas the Tank Engine from the days when it was just models not CGI, it was one of the shows I recall from my Childhood.

My daughter loves True MAgical Friends. And to be honest I quite enjoy it too. Bartleby is a great kitty character.

I vastly reccomend CGI thomas over the models. The original show the characters are horrible to each other and generally selfish and dark. The newer stuff is at least better. Especially big world big adventures. My daughter loves Nia


It's a Newcomic (apparently)

Three shows I suggest that are all on Netflix, though I'm not sure about the last one. Might be a bit too 'scary'.

 

First show: Lolirock.

 

Each of these are a trailer to give you a general idea of how the shows go. Lolirock is a solid show about three girls in a band that are actually 'magical girls' from another world sent to earth to find the jewels to a magic crown.(Well that's the really short version)

 

All the characters are fun, especially the bad guys, and I'll just say this now. The main girl Iris gets a super sayian form. ^_^

 

Second show: Mia and Me.

 

https://youtu.be/kIdPefPFxGo

Mia is a girl who's parents have died, and she's sent to a boarding school she doesn't really want any part of. Thankfully she is given a gift her father had set aside for her upcoming birthday, but given the circumstances she gets it now. It comes with a bracelet that asks her for a password, and once she says it. (It was on a note with the book) She suddenly finds herself IN the world of the book! Now as an elf (which is really just a fairy, but for some reason they are called elfs here) She has to protect the unicorns from a great evil.

 

 

Last we have Legend Quest:

It's about a boy who lives in some time around I believe the early 1900's or maybe even the 1800's. He's able to see 'ghosts' and with the help of these ghosts he has to stop a great evil from rising.

https://youtu.be/LSstpoh5z4Y

 

This one tends to have some pretty intense monster designs though, so maybe not this one.

In the same vein as MLP:FiM (so, a little more intense, but still kid-friendly), there's Mysticons:



Big Hero 6 has pretty much the same tone as the movie, so that's a good barometre of whether they'll handle it:

I'm usually annoyed at adventure fantasy shows with British kids (cuz they have aaaaaaaall the fantasy. When it's not Asian anime) but this is an alternate history where magical creatures are around ish.

The intro is a trip though. Gorgeous.

I completely forgot about some classic Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network shows.

 

Rugrats

CatDog

Rocko's Modern Life

Early seasons of Spongebob Squarepants

Rocket Power

The Wild Thornberrys

The Fairly OddParents

The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius

Blue's Clues

Little Bear

 

Dexter's Laboratory

Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends

Camp Lazlo

Baby Looney Tunes

 

 

Twas actually harder than I thought to think of some past Cartoon Network-original shows that would be okay for little kids since most of their shows were for bigger kids.

 

Also, two more 80s/90s syndicated series I forgot to mention before:

 

The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog

The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!
