Mr. Speaker, we are for the Bass X0.

@  Nevermore : (13 June 2021 - 06:04 AM)

It's all about that Bass XD.

@  tigerhawk : (13 June 2021 - 02:16 AM)

Will altering the moons orbit in any way help.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (13 June 2021 - 01:51 AM)

Now that you have seen this Bass XO, you must send it to five other Bass XOs or BassXO will come to you in a week and then you too will be BassXO.

@  Telly : (13 June 2021 - 12:08 AM)

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 03:37 AM)

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.

@  repowers : (11 June 2021 - 11:29 PM)

Bass XO has been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty.

@  Echowarrior : (11 June 2021 - 09:25 PM)

Do not taunt Bass XO.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 June 2021 - 09:02 PM)

Please consult a technician before using Bass XO. Do not operate Bass XO while consuming alcohol.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 June 2021 - 04:48 PM)

Nine out of ten doctors recommend Bass XO. The last doctor is on my list.

@  Dekafox : (11 June 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Bass XO is available at these fine retailers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 June 2021 - 02:01 AM)

Bass XO is not to be confused with Bay Sexo.

@  Fenix Twilight : (10 June 2021 - 08:38 PM)

Bass XO has 9" long, dagger-like teeth and a 12,000 lb. bite force

@  repowers : (08 June 2021 - 07:26 PM)

Bass XO doesn't feel pain. He can't be reasoned with!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 June 2021 - 02:57 PM)

Bass XO has no known weaknesses.

@  tigerhawk : (24 May 2021 - 07:42 AM)

I'm making progress with tweezers. It's no great loss given Dai Atlas minor roles anyway, I really do prefer this mold for Titans Overlord and Sky Shadow,

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2021 - 09:57 PM)

Had that happen once. Drilled a 1 mmhole in the peg and superglued a rivet into it for something to pull on.

@  tigerhawk : (22 May 2021 - 09:44 PM)

pliers, superglue, heat, nothing has worked so far but I had to take yesterday off due to pfizer side effects.

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2021 - 07:04 AM)

is there enough plastic sticking out to yank it out with pliers?

@  tigerhawk : (21 May 2021 - 01:05 PM)

Oh great my Legends Dai Atlas fell and the gun snapped in two, the handle is stuck in the port on top of the vehicle mode.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:14 AM)

Also, our compound terms are legendary among foreigners, because we throw them together as a single word, with no spaces and usually without hyphens too.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:12 AM)

You can have straightforward sentences that are a literal word-replace translation of stuff like "I go to school", but once you throw in perfect tense and prepositions, you end up with insane constructions where the main verb is at the very end of a very long sentence, so you have to listen to the whole sentence until you have any clue what is going on.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:10 AM)

And I stand by that. German sentence structure can be utterly insane.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:10 AM)

Fun fact: When I was teaching German kids English, I kept telling them that English grammar and especially sentence structure is more logical than German.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:17 AM)

e.g. Lion-Eating Poet in the Stone Den was by a Chinese guy pointing out the weirdness in his own language, rather than the frustrations of somebody learning Chinese as their second. So English isn't the only case where native speakers might enocunter funky issues.

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.

"disallusioned 20-somethings that lost their childhood to fighting crime"... You can hugging FLY and bench press semi trucks. If you aren't capable of making the best out of being gods on earth then it doesn't matter what your childhood looked like.

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.
