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)

@  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)

So, just because I'm interested, for those of you who acquired COVID, how vigilant would you say you were about COVID precautions on a scale of 1 to 10, where one is you made no changes to your life and ten is you took every precaution?


Edited by PiratedTVPro, 29 December 2020 - 11:05 AM.

Yep.

8. I wore a mask, social distanced, washed hands and surfaces constantly and only really went out for shopping or to walk the dog, taking paths I knew I wouldn't need to get near people. Unfortunately, there's no protection from other people's poor judgement if you're stuck in a house with them.

So, just because I'm interested, for those of you who acquired COVID, how vigilant would you say you were about COVID precautions on a scale of 1 to 10, where one is you made no changes to your life and ten is you took every precaution?

 

The first time I got it back in Jan-Feb was before people even knew it was a thing. My job was to go onsite for every ticket whether it be retail or someone's house. 

 

The second time I got it was beyond taking every precaution I was aware of I ended up in a car with someone who at the time was unknown to have it while trying to get a job.

 

Damned if I do, damned if I don't. In all other cases when I have to go in public I wear a mask and deliberately stay 10 feet away from people if I can help it. 


The first time I was sick for so long with multiple doctor visits to try and figure out what was wrong (they just said it was the flu) I can't imagine the amount of times it was spread unbeknownst to me (or anyone else)

Don't know if I've got the flu or covid, my brother tested positive on Monday so we got the results and immediately went into isolation on Tuesday, we've all taken bad  over the past two days: dry throats, coughs (not continuous), high temperatures, one of us has muscle pain. 

Whenever I get flu I usually work through it but now I'm just low on energy. I think I've had covid in the past year but this is new.

I tested positive on Monday, though I'd been feeling like crap since at least thursday of last week.  It feels like a bad head cold.  I'm stuffy as hell.  Today my throat hurts.  Lethargic, headache, what you usually expect when you're sick.  

 

But, I can still taste/smell (through the congestion, at least) and I can still breathe.  I'm not sure my test was accurate, but this is one of the less nice colds I've dealt with.  Hope it stays that way.

So my worst fears are confirmed. One of my roommates has tested positive. There are four of us in this house, so we might all have it now.

 

In some ways I'm impressed, as I managed an entire year without getting it. Then again, I don't know for sure I have it/got it. I'm going to hopefully get tested tomorrow, if I can't find a way to do it today.

 

I did get sick about a week or so ago. End of last month I think. But it was nothing but a normal cold that I could feel. it started Friday when I got home. I had Saturday off. Took Sunday off, then went to work on Monday despite not really feeling perfect yet. Stupid me was more afraid of putting everyone behind at work then just resting. I had Tuesday off though, and by Wednesday I was pretty much over it.

 

I never lost my sense of taste. No issues breathing. In fact I don't have a car so I use a bicycle to get to work. To a job I used to live right next to, but we moved into a house that is now 9 miles away from where I work. So yes I was biking 18 miles a day. I managed this even while "sick" so If I did have it, I guess I got lucky and got off light. Which is why I was so certain I just had a cold.

 

Now I'm really worried I'm the bleeping moron that spread it, and right now need to talk to my work to see what I need to do. Sounds like I'm going to be forced to isolate as I doubt there is anything else that can be done in a situation like this. I don't even know what happens if I end up testing negative.

 

EDIT: Yep I'm having to stay home. Will get myself tested and go from there. Guess I need to look into grocery shopping from home? I'm assuming the responsible thing would to NOT go out.

Oof. Hope you didn't unknowingly spread it before. When TMM had it I did get a bit sick but it lasted about a week and it felt like a bad cold. I tested negative. We either had stuff delivered or did curbside pickup for two weeks. Some places are doing Covid antibody tests now, so that might be an option if you test negative.

Hope you're well, videomaster. Sounds like your symptoms were identical to mine--I didn't even know I had it.

 

I'm lucky. My oldest daughter in college was able to grocery shop for our family when we had it. She's on a college campus, and never caught it. Meanwhile, I go to work every day and the grocery store once a week: caught it in September.

My family's recent bout of sickness at least made a few believers out of some local deniers in my street and workplace on the grounds we don't get really ill with colds and flu. I think I contracted covid in November 2019 and July 2020 but this latest one may have been a variant.

Well my test came back. I'm negative, so I guess it really was just a minor cold I had.

 

Sadly two of my roommates have both tested positive, so I'm still being made to isolate by my work.

 

Sucks I have to do this to them. :/

 

To try and keep active I order a copy of Ring Fit for my switch. Even though I'm negative with two positive roomies, I feel I should still be careful.
