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.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

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.)

Trypticon so scared my Primus figure he turned into a ball.

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)

Bossk Saw

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

Bass XD

@  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.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

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

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  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.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

It's not what the article says, buuuuuuut...

Man, Cartoon Network may have outlasted the other networks when it came to not decaying, but when they started decaying... They REALLY started decaying. Faster than the freaking Disney Channel did. it took Disney Channel from, like, '97, when they started changing to a tween demographic, up 'till about 2003 to start sucking, with Lizzie McGuire and crap. Nick only started dying in 2005 with that horrible The X's rip-off of the Incredibles, but at least they had Avatar for the next four years. Cartoon Network... it's like, as soon as they started airing Total Drama Island, they dove headfirst into the downward spiral that Disney Channel and Nick simply parachuted into.

It doesn't say anywhere there that CN will be showing the tour, just that they'll be showing golf-related content and selling golf-related merchandise to their target demo. Believe it or not, golf is an increasingly-popular youth sport, especially among affluent families.

You're right, it isn't. Nowhere in the article does it say the Cartoon Network will be broadcasting hours and hours of golf. Just that there'll be a licensing partnership.

<shrugs> so golf commercials on CN. They've already jumped the shark so hard that they haven't landed yet w/ their live action show lineup anyway, so it's not as if I'll have to watch any of the commercials.

I'm thinking that cable and sat companies need to just switch to full on On Demand content. Then we find out what people really want to watch.

really? cause actual ratings vs the Neilson nonsense would probably surprise you. Basing ratings on # of downloads rather than relying on what all the mouth breathers who've worked their day around their favorite tv show watch will likely show quite a difference.

Besides which, if people don't ever watch something anyway, what's the point of it being on TV? if a show is of a real quality and is universally available, you get a much better, and far more accurate, determination on that show's popularity. Eliminating time slot as a factor in a show's success could help keep quality programming on the air.

I'd much rather destroy the cable and satellite companies and put your basic 100 on Network channels.

We already have multi-casting compliments of the digital transition. I get the following:

7.1 CBS Network
7.2 My TV Network (Midnight to 5 AM, switches to Funimation Anime Network)
7.3 CBS Weather
9.1 ABC Network
9.2 CW Network
9.3 THIS Movie Channel
13.1 NBC Network
13.2 NBC Weather
20.1 PBS1
20.2 PBS2
20.3 PBS3
55.1 FOX Network
55.2 UNTAMED Outdoors Channel

With all these "decimal" channels, surely some of these cable channels could venture out and see how they do over the air. Surely the minuscule amount they receive every month from cable/satellite providers could be compensated for with a wider audience and increased advertising revenue.

I've always been in favor of the ala carte plans. I don't wanna pay for 45 channels I never watch. So throw them all on the open air and see who survives. None of the Network Stations have flopped, we have competition with them all being freely available. Surely more open competition would encourage better programming from the other surviving networks as well.

Except their not MAKING quality shows anymore. Sure, fox will make a medical drama or something, but they jive can good stuff by default. Decent fiction can't compete with low operating costs and guaranteed revenue that the reality crap makes. More to the point, when was the last time an original idea actually made it onto air anyway? Knight rider? The bionic woman? I'm still waiting for the A-team revamp. Apparently the new millennium is the time of rehashing 20 year old shows.

You're right, making programming "on demand" would allow people to watch their favorite shows and see the potential stuff as they want to, as their free... but when the options are "Are you smarter than a fifth grader", or " So you think you can dance/sing/act/flail widly on a stage america" or nearly twenty seasons of survivor...

Frankly, I'm questioning why I even bother with TV anymore.

There's too much golf on TV as it is... gotta be the most boring thing to watch I can think of. If you want Golf, go out and play some; it's a hell of a lot more entertaining.

Personally, I think there should be 7-8 channels set aside for sports games. Domestic and international, 24/7... that's all that's on there. But those would be the only channels that sports are ever on; period. No FOX pre-empting decent shows all the time for some jivey football game, etc. I'm sick of sports on channels they shouldn't be on.
