WHICH 2016 clown panic?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 February 2021 - 07:22 AM)

Didn't that come right after the 2016 clown panic? No way to make clowns not disturbing at the time, surely.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:26 AM)

The clown guise is supposed to lure kids in, it's no good if it looks sus in one glance.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:15 AM)

The new one tries too hard to be unsettling from the start. Curry's look is just a plain old clown, until he very much is not.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:14 AM)

And Curry has a far more disturbing look at times than the newbie.

@  Sabrblade : (28 February 2021 - 02:22 AM)

And the original was a showcase of Tim Curry's delightfulness as an actor. 'Nuff said.

It just depends on what it is. It is preferable to take it to P&R though. But sometimes current news as it's happening is less restrictive.

@  fourteenwings : (24 February 2021 - 12:18 AM)

Huh, good point (x3)

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 February 2021 - 11:46 AM)

Yeah. 1. People treat it like Twitter. 2. There's no "take it to P&R" since there's no P&R for the Shoutbox. 3. There's similarly no way to avoid either subjects or people in the Shoutbox since there's no division and it doesn't respect the ignore function, so people end up engaging when they normally wouldn't.

@  fourteenwings : (23 February 2021 - 10:56 AM)

Is there something about the Shoutbox that just means we get politics taking over the thing at least once a week?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2021 - 08:26 AM)

At least your government is willing to talk about the collapsing medicare system. In quebec, their ignoring it in favour of talking about language again! Oh, and unconstitutionally denying access to eduction.

@  Shockwave 75 : (23 February 2021 - 07:52 AM)

At least here in my home province of Ontario we have a conservative gov't who doesn't want to cuz $$$$, but the argument is that they'll end up paying in medical care anyways for those sick people so why not?

@  Shockwave 75 : (23 February 2021 - 07:51 AM)

We have paid sick leave here in Canada too, but it's not very much and not everyone has it. So we're trying to get the gov't to extend it, and give it to everyone.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:23 AM)

The only reason people still go to work despite being sick is because they feel emotionally obliged to serve their employer.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:20 AM)

Some people abuse the system by somehow getting sick with a different plague every five weeks.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:20 AM)

Those six weeks are out of the employer's pocket by legal mandate. If you're still sick after those six weeks, the health insurance company takes over the payment.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:19 AM)

That's the good thing in Germany - we have legally mandated paid sick days. Six weeks (!) for a single cause (consecutive or recurring, as long as it's the same cause; reinfections long after the fact don't count), Everytime the employee gets sick with a new cause, another six weeks start.

@  tigerhawk : (22 February 2021 - 04:48 PM)

That's how my family got sick, my brothers a teacher, he has a class for expelled students, they gave full attendance these past few lockdowns out of sheer boredom, they can turn in sick and break isolation and he nor the other staff, who also got sick, couldn't do anything about it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 February 2021 - 03:03 PM)

Yeah, pretty sure the only reason people don't stay home when they're sick is that the vast majority of society lives paycheque to paycheque, and they can't afford even one missed day of work.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 February 2021 - 11:27 AM)

That's unfortunate... I know masks can be annoying, but I think not being able to breath comfortably for a while is better than actually having the virus and not being able to breath at all. bUt Oh, pEoPLe dOn'T bELiVe ThE dAmN vIrUs Is rEaL

@  wonko the sane? : (22 February 2021 - 08:28 AM)

Hahahaha! Oh, you're serious. Yeah, no one is going to do that. Far too many are in positions where they simply cannot afford the time off, and most of the rest are the kind who won't wear the mask in a global pandemic, never mind when they alone have the sniffles.

@  Shockwave 75 : (22 February 2021 - 08:20 AM)

I just hope a take-away from this will be for people to stay home when they're sick, and if they have to go out, wear a mask so as not to spread their illness.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 February 2021 - 08:25 PM)

I think it's mostly the masking that's kept the flu season down so much, and that's unlikely to be kept up for that long. I'm sure there'll be some people who keep wearing masks for years after this, but I suspect a larger number are anticipating people able to toss them once vaccinations are complete.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2021 - 05:27 PM)

Same in canada. Doctors report it to be basically non-existant. I kinda hope they keep some stuff up after everyone is vaccinated. Like hand sanitizer at store entrances, and actually cleaning the shopping carts.

@  tigerhawk : (21 February 2021 - 05:17 PM)

On the plus side cold and flu cases are down 80% this winter thanks to lockdowns, or at least that's the case in the UK.

@  Sabrblade : (15 February 2021 - 12:04 PM)

Heh, that new Binaltech comic that Ichikawa wrote for one of the Japanese Generations books even had the other Dinobots make fun of Grimlock for his "Autobot Car" body.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 February 2021 - 12:03 PM)

They got that rescue bot grimlock that turns into a motorcycle. That's... pretty neat...

@  Otaku : (15 February 2021 - 11:35 AM)

Just to make Grimlock feel more "wrong", they even highlight how his character just seems ill-suited for a sports car alternate mode in his own backstory.  Hindsight is 20/20, so I now wish they'd made a T-rex that transformed into a sportscar.  Still probably would have been as much or more of a pain to transform, but at least it'd feel more like Grimlock. :D

@  Rycochet : (13 February 2021 - 04:39 PM)

Some Alternators were fine, then you have Grimlock/Wheeljack, with three transformers worth of fiddly and a giant buttflap.

Good episode. It's funny how Sgt. Hatred's probably arching Venture just to spite Monarch for his henchmen regularly stealing Hatred's stuff to repair his cocoon. It's also cool that that whole plot concept is based on a throwaway line or two from 21 or 24("I *hate* you.") in the last couple seasons.

Only thing I didn't like is that they kind of explained Dr. Girlfriend's voice. I'm hoping that's not official.

I don't know if I was imagining this or not but wasn't the episode where they introduced Hunter the same ep they mentioned Brock had a brother? I seem to remember an episode where they had some sort of montage (maybe the one where Orpheus and crew were trying to find an arch villain) and in it there was a character that looked like Samson but he had black hair and was in some sort of animal suit.

?

Anyway, my comments:
Kinda creepy how Sgt. Hatred actually has "HATRED" written down his body. Up until now we've only seen the "H" on his face, and one would assume that's only as far as it goes.

With Dr. Girlfriend's (Dr. Wife's?) voice, usually someone will make an assertion and it will be immediately refuted, but not so much this time. Hatred's "3-pack a day voice" line was never really refuted. I'll admit, it does take some of the mystery out of it.

Two favorite lines from the ep:

24: "You know, you didn't have to get naked too..."
Hank: "Yeah, well...I saw you guys stripping down and had only one thought: Slip-n-slide!"

Brock: "Don't worry, these guys have rules. You're probably safer here than at the compound..."
Dr. Venture: "Wha...really?"
Brock: "Aah dunno. I just wanna see them fire the crossbow. The thing's HUGE!"

EDIT: Make that three favorite lines:

"Wow, he's a soft one, in'he?" ::speaks into radio:: "Allright, can the non-lethal, we're going full on NERF™ with this one!"

I thought that immediately too, but as I think about it more and more, and considering how this show likes to to screw with us, there's always the possibility that he's Venture's kid.

Unlikely? Maybe. But, they never showed the mom, "He's a teenager, like us!", and Dermot interacted with Brock and Venture. But, given that Brock wanted to gut the kid, he's probably his.

On that note, my friend's favorite line from last night was Brock's, "No no no, there just bein' kids, let 'em duke it out" ::big grin::

It would be easy for Dermott to be Brock's kid, the guy's slept around like a man-whore since at least his college years. I just can't believe Brock would have such a douche for a kid, though. You'd think at least some of his Awesome Genes™ would have rubbed off on the kid...

That line basically redeemed season 3 for me.

Well, from my perspective, it's just as meaningful if Brock wants to disembowel one of Rusty's kids since Brock is so dedicated to protecting the family.

Though I may be nuts, I thought there was some facial resemblance between Dermot and Hank, which got me thinking Dermot might be a previous version of Hank, raised like a normal person. Which to me would go along with how strongly they played up the differences between the two, as well as the blatant line about Hank and Dean having never interacted with other kids.

I thought it was a pretty good episode, especially when it got to the point when Dean just freaked out and started wailing on the guy. Brock was probably never more proud.

Poor little Dean, he finally gets a moment to be somewhat cool.

Missed this response to my post. When 21 and 24 were asked by the Monarch on how they repaired the cocoon, it was always about stealing parts from Hatred's hovertank. You didn't think anything of it at the time other than being a funny line, and now the repurcussions of it is a running season 3 plot line.
