the correct answwer to "who shot first" will always be "Harrison Ford if he ever hears that hugging question again."

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 July 2020 - 12:25 AM)

Han shot first. Plain and simple.

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

The new Batman cartoon, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, debuts tonight on Cartoon Network at 8 Eastern Time. I think it looks to be an incredibly fun show, and as it features the animation debut of Jaime Reyes aka Blue Beetle (the third and current one), it is a must watch for me. He just had his relentlessly-awesome comic canceled, so perhaps this show can help soothe my RAGE/SADNESS over that news.

Here's the series trailer:

I just finished watching this on Teletoon, and while I think Jaime was a little out of character at points, overall I was pretty damn pleased. This series looks like it's going to be some serious cheesy, awesome fun!

I'll leave comprehensive reviews to people that aren't as easily pleased as myself.

Please, please inspire series-saving sales boost...

I like this Batman. They're trying a little too hard to capture the "giant typewriter"-era Batman in places (i.e. the big vat labeled ACID), but I definitely like the new tech gimmick for Batman and his wry personality.

Yeah, Cartoon!Jaime obviously isn't exactly the same as Comics!Jaime, which was to be expected. But I was happy with this version.

I totally wanted to shout "YAY PACO!" when I saw he was there, too. I had wondered if any of Jaime's supporting cast would make it into the show.

Yep, a campy, fun Batman cartoon, with storytelling aimed at a younger audience, but still willing to use words like "killed" and "dead." I think its off to a pretty strong start.

Really hope we see some teenaged heroes.

since this is targeting kids, I'm sure we likely will.

I really hope we get a chance to see Impulse.

I liked it for what it was.

Is it going to surpass TAS as the definitive Batman? No, but it was still fun to watch.

Lordy, that was great. The humor was spot-on, the action sequences were orgasmic to the eyes, and the retro style works perfectly.

Here's an upload, for those who missed it.

Blue Beetle kinda throws me off, though. Compared to everyone else, he looks totally modern, and after getting so used to his portrayal in his excellent comic, I was not expecting Blue Beetle to basically be DC's answer to Ron Stoppable. Not that I mind that too much, as I liked Kim Possible and thought that show was funny and well done as well; just threw me off a little in the beginning.

Also, after watching this, I am again reminded of how much the animation in Transformers: Animated tends to dissapoint me compared to just about every other Cartoon Network action show made in the last five or six years. You don't get episodes with animation like 'Total Meltdown' in Teen Titans, Ben 10 (and Alien Force), Secret Saturdays, the Batman, and now this. Just kind of leaves me with 'animation envy', I suppose.
Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

This was pretty much awesome. Lots of clever humor, something to keep the adults happy as well as the kids, and Jaime's totally a Batman fanboy! It was really well done.

When Jamie's flipping through channels, one of them has a standup comedian saying "...it's called 'The Aristocrats.'"


I loved it. The humour was spot on, the opening was very delightfully Sprang-y, and it was just in general very fun.

It is definitly not TAS. It is more....well the Adam West Batman but with some TAS feel to it. I'm not too sure about Batman's voice but it definitly works for this style of cartoon. The fact that they seem to be using some charactyers that haven't been seen in the DCAU actually makes me somewhat happy.

Ironbite-can't wait to see more.

Huh. I'm guessing only you Canadians got to hear that, because I just checked to be sure and in the version that aired on CN in the US, the comedian says "..to get to the other side."

Okay, from the before-episode bit on BM:TB&TB, this show looks like exactly the kind of show that Venture Bros is a parody of. It's ludicrous and absurd but thanks to taking no stops for explanations, it moves forward fast enough that show pulls it off. Kooky.

Beetle is very good. But I wish Ron Stoppable wasn't being typecast. Friendly Batman is.... disorienting. I hope all episodes are this adorable and there's none of the common "Let's make it more serious in season 3" - I have to wonder what percent of production crew this show shares with Legion.

Not bad, I sorta feel the silly nature of this show could work with ten minute segments. I'll watch it when it's on and I happen to be in the room, and nothing else is on, but I don't think I can see myself making time for this. Still, I might change my mind when Sinestro passes rings around.

This show takes place in the DCU and everybody who disagrees is basically Satan.
Woooo!
