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.

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)

The Powerpuff Girls used to be America’s pint-sized superheroes. Now they’re disillusioned twentysomethings who resent having lost their childhood to crime fighting. Will they agree to reunite now that the world needs them more than ever? https://deadline.com...-cw-1203021883/

This is such a bad idea, but probably a better idea than sticking Lucy Hale in two lead-driven shows in a row. However, nothing superhero gets cancelled on the CW so it'll probably last a while.

 

>People worried about Berlanti but not Diablo Cody

 

Not all Berlanti shows are terrible, Prodigal Son for one. Considering this is in the mold of his superhero fare, it surely will be. Everything after the second or third season of The Flash set into such a strict pattern that it's like there's a special writing structure camp just for these shows.

 

I'm exaggerating, though; Riverdale managed it's own Ravenswood-esque insanity instead.

 

who resent having lost their childhood to crime fighting

 

I mean, aside from that one episode; Do Powerpuff Girls grow up?

I hope the Rowdyruff Boys appear quickly. If the girls are disillusioned about their lost childhood, I wonder how the boys would feel?

Also, I can totally imagine Him being there.

This sounds absolutely awful!

 

A live action PPG thats takes the happiest, super fun adventures of three super little girls... and is going to... ugh ...Deconstruct it, by evolving them into angsty, cynical 'twentysomethings' that resent being heroes. Are they going to despise Professor Utonium? Is the show going to write him as some amoral jackass mad scientist? If they do 'ahem' save the day, will they whinge about it interrupting their 'me time'?
 

This just sounds so utterly Cynical! I'm sorry, but this sounds like a disaster waiting to happen.

They'll probably go Arrow and have it turn out that their saving the day somehow ruins something else, which they'll feel guilty about until the process is repeated season after season.

 

Since we're doing bleak Utonium predictions; maybe they just accidentally kill him, or he's killed in the line of battle in some other way.

Something they need to keep in mind when casting the girls is the fact that the three are triplets with the same face. Only their hair is different between the three, so what they ought to do is either cast identical triplets or one person to play all three. But they won't do that because we know they won't care to maintain that detail of the girls' physical appearance.

 

And what about the mayor? Are they gonna keep him as humorously incompetent as he was in the original show? I could see they going two ways with him. Either they'll drop everything about his original funny personality and just make him a boring ol' serious mayor, or they keep him the same but have him removed from office due to some mental condition of his that made him so dumb and so he's \replaced by someone more capable to run the city, like Miss Bellum.

 

Oh, and they'll probably show Miss Bellum's face too, since keeping her face hidden is likely a running gag that they'll get rid of.

 

On the flip-side, though, any CG characters like Mojo Jojo would give me hope that they could still be voiced by their original voice actors, even if they were to play them more seriously and less funny.

Ok, here are more ultra cynical predictions based on whst we know and what i can see (dread) happening. Would love to be wrong.

 

The three won't be relsted AT ALL! This new show will redefine them as racially diverse and claim its progressive and empowering.

Their creation will have some dark, twisted nature to it, thus painting Utonium as a morally grey scientist of questionable ethics.

The Mayor will be a thinly veiled dig and modern day political figures, just to make a statement.

Miss Bellum will be the only competent leader. Extra points if the somehow find a way to make her the girls new guardian.

Mojo Jojo will be a made a tragic and suffering not-bad-really bad guy, whose backstory is another part of vilifying Utonium. That or they'll make him an incredibly freaky, sadistic killer, who is somehow still tragic.

The girls will get bullied and suffer some form of misogynistic attacks from guys who are jerks. Even though, as wonko said, they should be able to bench press trucks.

 

Sorry all, its just this whole stupid idea just boils my blood and i was never really into ppg. My niece loved it and still does. Not the reboot cartoon though.

 

EDIT:

 

As a counter to the badness that is this live action idea. The intro to the real Powerpuff Girls.

Mojo's origin DID vilify utonium, and utonium WAS a morally grey scientist. He set out to make "the perfect little girl"... in his basement workshop, and when they came out super powered, he immediately started using them to fight crime.

That is not what happened in the movie. Like, at all.

 

He even discouraged them about using their superpowers.
