I can just HEAR his screechy G1 voice saying that....

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 June 2020 - 09:30 PM)

*Dies laughing* XDDDDDD

(i just want to make jokes excuse my doing)

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 June 2020 - 06:38 PM)

ITS STARSCREAM.... AND HIS CLONES

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 June 2020 - 06:31 PM)

And there was no one there when I started!

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 June 2020 - 06:31 PM)

I swear, I'm in line to use a coupon, there is something wrong with said coupon, and suddenly I'm holding up a line of 3 or 4 people

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 June 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Ha! Talk about getting away with something!

@  Maximus Ambus : (30 May 2020 - 02:14 AM)

Shockwave did it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (30 May 2020 - 12:21 AM)

I'm not in the US and at least some of the episodes seem to work for me. I don't know the actual list of places it's available, though.

@  Shockwave 75 : (29 May 2020 - 10:37 PM)

Unfortunately It seems Cyberverse is only available in the US on YouTube.

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 May 2020 - 09:19 AM)

Yes, and its ongoing.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (29 May 2020 - 01:05 AM)

Cyberverse is already officially uploaded to YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (29 May 2020 - 12:36 AM)

Spin Master is abridging current episodes of Bakugan Armored Alliance and posting the result on YouTube. Maybe Hasbro does that someday too.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 10:59 PM)

I see... :/

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 08:14 PM)

Within the US anyway. Those channels aren't easy or cheap to access in other countries, and their website often region lock content. Tubi is the only good thing on that list: largely identical (but not perfectly so. Damnit. I wanna watch COPS.) country to country and free.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:24 PM)

So yeah, Hasbro is using plenty of venues to spread exposure of their brands

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Starz currently licenses Transformers G1 and the GI Joe movie (as well as MLP specials). Netflix has more current series available.

@  Nevermore : (28 May 2020 - 07:21 PM)

Study shows: Holders of the title "world's oldest person" have a severely increased risk of dying.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:18 PM)

Tubi TV and Youtube both host various Hasbro cartoons. Both are freely accessed and ad supported. Any basic TV package (barring straight antenna) includes channels like USA Network, SyFy and FX, all of which regularly air the films from Transformers and GI Joe.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 06:18 PM)

I dunno what to tell you, media might be changing slowly, but at least it's still accessible. Even the folks that DON'T get one of the streaming services can watch it on the company website. It's a vehicle for the toy line after all, they need to make an effort to make it as consumable as possible.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 05:41 PM)

Well. Thats said, then.... I guess... :doh

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 04:13 PM)

As long as the the cartoons are profitable, then they'll make more. The media it's shown on is completely irrelevant. I say that as a guy whose earliest surviving memory is a big red truck turning into a big red robot.

@  ZakuConvoy : (28 May 2020 - 03:06 PM)

Might be the end of an era. With the rise of streaming, who knows if Transformers will ever be on broadcast TV again.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 11:46 AM)

3 seasons on a show is usually enough... but yeah ;-;

@  Roddie Luver : (27 May 2020 - 09:37 PM)

I’m also sad Cyberverse has no season four.

@  Paladin : (26 May 2020 - 08:10 PM)

it's too hugging hot today.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I'll agree with you on that.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

*Figured -_-

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I fugured

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 May 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I'm actually sad Cyberverse won't get another season. 2 and 3 (of what I've seen) have REALLY nailed it in being fun little actions shows, like the Sunbow series.

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Yes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 May 2020 - 12:52 PM)

I'm waiting for Animated season 4. Am I insane?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2020 - 11:22 AM)

I'm waiting for the next season to show up on netflix.

@  Sabrblade : (25 May 2020 - 10:59 AM)

Many of us have already watched the rest of the Cyberverse episodes since the whole third season aired in the UK last September.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 10:18 AM)

*9th

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 10:17 AM)

I just saw the 8th episode... omg

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

Already seen it online.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 09:42 PM)

Who's excited for tomorrow? The only thing that makes Monday worth it is the Cyberverse episodes .-.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

There are two kinds of angry people - explosive and implosive. Explosive is the type of individual you see screaming at the cashier for not taking his coupon. Implosive is the cashier who remains quiet day after day and then finally shoots everyone in the store.

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.
