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.

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.

@  Paladin : (17 June 2021 - 09:37 AM)

because it sucked.

@  tigerhawk : (17 June 2021 - 08:58 AM)

Heroes was cancelled twice.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 06:33 AM)

@  Maruten : (16 June 2021 - 07:13 PM)

Lucky there's a hero arriving in July.

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 June 2021 - 05:38 PM)

I think I've heard "I Need a Hero" more times this past week than I have in the past several years.

@  tigerhawk : (16 June 2021 - 12:41 PM)

Thanks to Earthrise I can recreate the end of Return of Optimus Prime part 1.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 June 2021 - 11:19 AM)

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

Here in Germany, the price you see is the price you pay, tax included.

I always find it weaird hearing that stores in the US don't initially already taxes in their prices.

Well, there was the sexual assault, the sexual harassment, oh and the grooming that you kinda glossed over there.  So there's that.

I was just reading the wiki, and it doesn't really mention any of that.

The whole thing is locked down, so hardly likely.

 

The thing about the grooming is it's mostly in the affidavits the Wikipedia article quickly glosses over.

Which makes sense, they're not part of the main defamation suit.

I really don't give a shit about obsessively following his legal proceedings but I'm incredibly burnt out that this now hangs over the western Dragon Ball fandom.

People who conflate Vic with the characters he played and making up these BS theories about how it's a witch hunt and thinking they know how the anime industry works.

All this because they've tried to fill their sad little lives with some Toei producer's broken Dragon Ball OC.

I'm pretty sure it's like .03% of all anime fans that are upset about this.

 

Ironbite-considering how little roles Vic had gotten prior to this whole shit show happening.

 

ETA: I'll also like to point out that I also started this thread to point out the sheer amount of harassment and utter bile that was sent Jamie Marachi and Monica Riel's way due to them just speaking out.  Harassment and bile that continues to this day even after this so called "god" of voice acting lost his case and will lose his appeals.  Harassment and bile that was also directed at an innocent third party who's only crime was starting up a hashtag on twitter who had to run a gofundme in order to maybe explore legal council in the chance that she was sued as well.  So yeah, excuse me for not only bouncing your concerns the hell out into the cold vacuum of space, but also to reevaluate how I look at you on the forums.

 

Ironbite-and take that for what you will.

The sad thing is Vic is one of the good anime VAs of the early 2000s He did stuff before FMA, but afterwards he was one of Funimations staple stars.

But a lot of people cant get past that Star Worship to see him as a creep that he definitely could be. I cant make heads or tales about what is actually going on in these legal squabbles other than Vic really thought he had a case and took some of the worst legal counsel to fight his battle.

But heres the rub. Hes not ever going to be the star he was before. Win or lose, fan base or not dude is blacklisted, and while he has gotten work his time with Funimation and Rooster Teeth is over. And they were his primary employers as far as I can tell.

Ill never forget him as Edward, Fai and that flirty guy in Full Metal Panic, but his days in major voice acting are pretty screwed at this point.

I barely know who the guy is and the only thing I've ever seen him in was his Star Trek show. Which I liked a lot. Most anime stuff is just white noise to me though.

 

I could have sworn I saw something recently about a studio I was familiar with that the name rang a bell, but I can't remember it now so I can't find it.

If that's aimed at me- I don't see any point in obsessively tracking every little event in Vic's legal matters. Supporting his victims and making people aware of what he did, yes. But I don't get the weird need to track everytime his legal advisor so much as farts.

And if we're doing the whole moral standing thing, I called out Channel Awesome as a toxic workplace years ago and had people here telling me to shut up and drop it. When Change The Channel dropped, those same people started lecturing me on how bad it was and acting like I hadn't been the one calling it what it was for ages.

On a related note. Chris Thurman has exposed himself as a sexual deviant also.   Which btw Funimation immediately terminated his contract with him.  

I'm just pointing out that there's a culture that Vic seems to be a part of and  it needs to be exposed.  I just don't get why people indulge in this behavior at all.
