Oh no! Darkeklaw is multiplaying! (See birthday box)

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)

@  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.

@  Nevermore : (16 June 2021 - 10:42 AM)

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

@  Nevermore : (16 June 2021 - 10:42 AM)

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

Knock on wood, I have even had a head cold this year.   I usually end up with a nasty throat based cold that makes me sound like Randy Savage for about two weeks.  But I think it's because I really don't go anywhere and I follow the guidelines at work.

Being out of the office, I have managed to not get sick (knocks on wood). In the office I was getting sick every three months or so.

Usually just a cold, but still.

I've surpassed the two weeks from when I was exposed but today (5 days later) I've been super tired and have had terrible digestive problems, but no fever to speak of.

 

I don't want to assume every ailment I get is covid but it sucks that I have to, as I'm sure anyone does.

 

 

Side note: The report came to me in email about the ads as I suspected. What I didn't expect was that it wasn't Covid that triggered it, but rather was flagged due to the other half of the title. FFS

Yes, this is real.
Looks like it's even free with Amazon Prime. Maybe I'll read it for laughs, the preview is horrible.

Edit: NVM, it's extra for Kindle Unlimited.

Went grocery shopping with my boy.  Quite a few people without masks and making jokes about sheep.  

I find myself with no tolerance for their buffoonery.  Thankfully they all made wide berth while we walked past.  Even with a mask on a glare can still get you places.

I'm glad I live in an area where masks are mandatory and I haven't seen anyone walking around without one. Though my fiance did see one the other day at Ocean State Job Lot and the people where I bring my car to (even in the office) don't. That one irks me a lot. I understand it being a family run business and the mechanics not, but not those dealing with the customers directly.

Same here.  They might not be spouting anti-mask bs, but it still irks me.

Yeah, that's one of the lingering things that really hasn't gone away for me. Also my mind seems to be clouded and I have trouble focusing and remembering stuff and while I still have a sense of smell things don't smell like they're supposed to. There are a few other things but I can't remember them off hand.

I've had some lingering fatigue, but I've also been an insomniac for a long time now, so I'm not entirely sure it's really new. Ditto the breathing problems, but I'm also asthmatic, and had a pulmonary embolism back in January. And lack of focus, but that could be general depression.

 

So basically I'm a giant mess and it may or may not be COVID related.

Getting vaccinated as soon as I'm able. Hopefully by the time I'm able to get it, it'll be a single dose vaccine rather than a two-dose one.
