Back in my day, I called them "Mini-Spies".

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 02:06 PM)

Think about the implications of it though, robots in disguise themselves infiltrated and paranoid by the recent shifts in the status quo.

@  unluckiness : (28 May 2017 - 07:47 AM)

I'm kinda glad. A couple tie-in stories aside, Secret Invasion was a mess.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 07:23 AM)

Almost makes you wonder if some of the aborted Micronauts relaunch concept didn't slip in...

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 07:20 AM)

Titan Masters could quite easily have been Transformers: Secret invasion, the return of the Mini-cons/Stentarians but noooooo, it had to be whatever the pit it is.

I always interpreted that scene to mean that asgardians weren't capable of breaking down problems in the same way as humans.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 06:58 AM)

I mean, SG1 was a good show on balance. One of my favourite things was Thor admitting he found humans good to keep around because they so often came up with stupid ideas that nevertheless worked out.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Those episodes were 1969 and 2010.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Stargate sg1 was loosely based on the movie, it thrived on continuity it was impressive how old situations and solutions would come back in unexpected ways. Continuum had it's villain use the characters own solution in two previous episodes against them.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:39 AM)

And yeah, name is based on a part of my surname. Can't remember why I picked it. Lost to memories of the primordial early 2000s.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:37 AM)

Like how Abydos in the movie is in another galaxy on the far side of the universe, but Abydos in SG1 is the closest world to Earth (and that was the only reason the gate could still get there) and even getting to other galaxies was impossible with the normal gates.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:35 AM)

I was very tired when I said that, but what I meant was a lot of stuff that is in the original Stargate movie is contradicted a lot in Stargate SG1.

No, I am referring to before Beast Wars: Uprising. I swear Swindle was a lawyer in a story before "A Brush With Infamy".

@  Telly : (25 May 2017 - 09:47 PM)

i cant get the link to work for the life of me. just go to the wiki and type "a brush with infamy" in the search box and itll come up

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

I swear I've read the story but now I forget which one it is.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

When has G1 Swindle been a lawyer before?

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2017 - 07:20 PM)

All I know about PennPenn is he's so good they named him twice.

The prequel-creep from the original Stargate movie to SG1 is kinda funny.

So, I got to watch the first three episodes last night. While the banter is pretty well written and combat is fairly flowing, plus ya gotta like anything where they try to replicate the movie tony stark: did they mess up air order? Because episode three felt like 1, and 1 and 2 (Jail break two parter) could easily have come after. Consequently, there are continuity errors that make it seem like the writers don't know what their doing. Like an entire episode of iron man acting like he's completely and totally alone when he's already formed the avengers and worked with other heroes.

Does it get better, or is it like this all the way through.

Episodes 3 to 7 were originally shown online as webisodes.

They carry production numbers 001 up to 005, whilst the breakout is 006 and 007

Not sure what the recommended watching order is. Probably production order

I watched them on Netflix, and its got them in production order. with the solo hero episodes being pre-jail break. I don't consider the series the best ever; but it is very good, though I never really got used to Tony Stark's voice he sounds kinda like Jack Black to me.

Yeah, Wikipedia rather insists on putting them in that stupid-ass order, completely failing to communicate how they should be watched. Episodes "3" to "7" are actually 1-5, and should be watched first, while "Breakout" is 6-7.

Yeah, Breakout only aired at the series premier becuase it was the actual formation of the Avengers. Its technically a smart move for broadcast. Nice big action piece that sets the stage for the show and hope people get interested, then the solo stuff that might have not gotten people interested as they wait 5 weeks for the show to actually be about the Avengers. But watching them now, after they've all aired and you don't have to wait weeks for the next episode its best in production order. Disney XD even handled to those five episodes right. They aired them in a single marathon run the first time, so that they still skip the "5 week wait of solo heroes" before going to episode 8.

The one problem with Breakout being aired first that left me going "huh?" for a good bit was The Big House. One of the "prequel" episodes adequately shows what's going on with that facility, which you're expected to know come Breakout. But not having bothered to watch the original webisodes, the Shield Helicarrier suddenly has buildings sprouting out of it out from nowhere, and is going down.

Banner's imprisonment was also a little out of nowhere, but it was at least easy to infer what was up with him.


The DVDs, thankfully, are in proper viewing order. Can't wait for the S1P2 set to come out next month (at least I'm assuming that's how it'll be released, as per the first half. The Canadian release was in a half-season set, rather than the two separate disks of the US release). Haven't gotten around to seeing any of those episodes, due to some screwy airing schedules. The "Gamma World" story was pretty epic, and I hear things only go up from there.


From what I've seen, The Hulk's easily my favourite character. Hulk with a bit of wit and attitude behind him is a wonderfully scary thing.

Hulk and Black Panther I think are the best characters in the series.

I haven't seen enough of the Black Panther to get a good read on him. His first major appearances give him this irritating "I'm better than all of you" vibe (not so much in attitude, thankfully, or he'd be even worse), which just grates. Otherwise, he doesn't interact with the rest of the cast all that much.

My biggest complain with the series is that it looks outright silly in shots when Hawkeye and Cap and Thor are all standing around with their silly outfits and giant shoulders like manly dudes in cosplay. Some refinements to give them more distinguished and friendlier facial structure would really help the series. Oh, and the intro music is horrid.

After the hiatus, they seemed to have changed the song when it aired on TV. Now it's just the instrumental with a terrible narration and scenes from the show itself intercut with the theme animation. It kinda made me miss the terrible Linkin Park wannabe song. Plus it breaks the flow of the action with the new way it was edited.

I dunno, aren't the heroes supposed to stand out some? I mean, its not like marvel was ever that big on the whole secret identity thing, and having the powers for heroics usually means being either real big or a mutant in some way. I mean, its not the like the superman cartoon where the dude is five feet across at the shoulders, the only one in the world like that and literally no one can see it.

Only in the US...part of the "Hey, there's an Avengers Movie coming soon" push.

I personally love the song, and plan to reset the movie trailer to it.

Oh hey, the Canadian pt.2 boxset actually comes out next week, a week before you guys get your single-disk versions.

Gonna have to pick that up, and catch up on what I've missed.

Not gonna double-dip on the BluRay. I've already got Part 1 on DVD, and I don't really see much point in TV animation on BluRay anyways.
