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.

@  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.

I wish they would do something like that here: but then it would become obvious in which provinces you're getting gouged.

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

After getting excited about each of the new films and being subsequently burned by the general awful writing and acting in all them, I don't plan on seeing Clone Wars, despite being a big Star Wars fan. I'll probably see it on DVD eventually, but I'm not in a hurry this time. I'm tired of Lucas' crap.
It's time to bring the crunch!

I'd consider myself a Star Wars fan, but the footage and panel at SDCC made the movie/series look unbearably awful. I plan to avoid both.

I OTOH am excited about the Clone Wars in a way I haven't been about a Star Wars movie since TPM.

Tartakovsky's series and the Republic Commando novels were the best things to come out of the Prequel era, and this looks to combine elements of both. Knowing that this is basically a series pilot (and that Lord Lucas would never sully his hands to screenwrite a full series), I'm hoping series writers George Krstic (co-creator of Megas XLR), Henry Gilroy (TF Animated: "Sound and Fury"), Paul Dini (Justice League Unlimited), and Scott Murphy (Angel) at least got to offer ideas.

Warner Bros. is not allowing any reviews to be released until after the film's release. The buzz is that this "film" is trash, fit for 5-years-olds. I'll see it eventually, but I will not be paying any money to see it - definitely NOT in theaters.

AICN had a second review up as well, also firmly negative.

Jive-talkin' Hutts, forgettable plots, poorly staged battles, kid sidekicks who "could only be worse if she said 'Meesa' every five seconds," an overall lack of any dramatic tension, plus bad directing and writing in general, were the main impressions I got from the reviews before they were pulled.

lol, it's a sad day when that happens. Fortunately, I still really enjoy the scores; and the original, unedited versions as well. You can't go wrong with a John Williams score... he even almost managed to make the portion of Superman following the credits, Krypton and Smallvillle watchable.
