How long until IDW puts out an Optimus Pride Month comic?

@  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)

Season 1 was good until the finale.

I wish they would do something like that here: but then it would become obvious in which provinces you're getting gouged.

Its Bass X0. I named myself after my three favourite Mega Man characters - Bass, X and Zero. I did consider going with Vile Bass X0, but that would have been going too far.

A new cartoon is premiering on Disney Channel this Monday called Amphibia. It's about a girl who gets transported to a strange new world populated by frogs. 

 

The first episode is available on Disney Now.

 

Anyone interested in this show?

*pops head out of spoiler bunker*
So, I appear to be caught up.

I'm liking it so far, though the first 12 episodes (actually 24, since they're all split 11-minute segments) are mostly episodic adventures with minimal continuity and with the obvious main plot only existing in the background. Past experience tells me that the plot will kick into high gear once the status-quo is fully established and the focus-groups have wandered off (see Star Vs., Gravity Falls, Steven Universe, etc).

For now, it's possible to jump right from Episode 1 to Episode 10 (plot-heavy) and then to episode 12 (second half adds a plot-relevant detail to the setting).

Hmm, I think I'll wait for the finale to watch this. If you folks say it's good, that is.

Star kinda got me after I saw Toffee in action and that's the finale. But the field trip was pretty good.

Steven had the double combo of the multiple Stevens and Too Many Birthdays to mess me up but I was actually drawn in by the hype from Stronger than You, the finale too.

Gravity Falls isn't a 10 minuter.

Gravity Falls did too.

It was a very good and fun show. In line with other series like Gravity Falls, Star VS, and DuckTales.

The season finale was very good. I liked the characterization of Anne's friend. She's not a one dimensional character.

The series premieres on TV on the 15th of August.

It is very good though, as noted, the first season is largely worldbuilding and setting up arcs to pay off in the finale.

After that finale, nothing will be the same.

I need to hop back on this one. The "bomb format" really lost me as I don't really consume media that way. Also the show didn't really grab me. Frogs are kinda gross.

13 I believe. And they are close friends with a lot of (bad) history between them who are also on opposite sides of a conflict of sorts.
