@  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)

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

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

Yeah, if there are two ways of resolving a story, RTD almost inevitably chooses the most outlandish possible. The Season 2 Finale wasn't so bad until he went and brought the Daleks into it (RTD loooooooooooves his Daleks), but all the others have had some pretty doofy resolutions and conclusions.

At the same time, I think that's a flaw of RTD writing "Grand". In smaller, more intimate settings such as Midnight and Waters of Mars, the man makes my jaw drop.

Also, he has a tendency to kill off villains that would have been absolutely incredible as reoccurring characters. The Dalek Emperor, The Cult of Skaro (Which did manage to make it to a second appearance before they were all promptly killed off), The Family of Blood (Seriously. Why would you get rid of Time Jumping, Body Hopping Hunters?), and especially Miss Hartigan. Even removing the Cyberman element, that woman would have made a formidable opponent for the Doctor. Just free her from Cyber Control, give her a Dalek Temporal Shifter, and BOOM! You got yourself a new foe for the Doctor to deal with from time to time.


That really is the problem with NuWho...not enough reoccurring original threats. The Weeping Angels were a start, but I'd like to see more.

With 'The Next Doctor', RTD panned the ending as early as the BBC commentary released later that night. His revised idea he came up with after filming basically involved her feeling sorrow over her actions and warping the Cyber King into the time vortex to be destroyed. Certainly a hell of alot better then 'she screams, everyone randomly explodes like balloons'.

By the way, Doctor Who is involved in the BBC Christmas trailer. Involves a bunch of their stars having a Bing Crosby style Christmas party. The Doctor and Amy are playing Twister with a Cyberman.

http://doctorwhotv.c...eboot-28713.htm

QUOTE
We can all breathe a sigh of relief now. Steven Moffat has decided to set the record straight on the Doctor Who movie and flat-out rubbishes everything David Yates has talked about.

Moffat said on Twitter today: ?To clarify: any Doctor Who movie would be made by the BBC team, star the current TV Doctor and certainly NOT be a Hollywood reboot.?

Moffat then added:?David Yates, great director, was speaking off the cuff, on a red carpet. You?ve seen the rubbish I talk when I?m cornered.?

Moffat elaborated: ?[Doctor Who] is a vitally important BBC brand with a huge international audience [that] not even Hollywood can start from scratch.

?There simply are no developed plans for a Doctor Who movie at the moment. If and when the movie happens it will need to star television?s Doctor Who ? and there?s only ever one of those at a time.?

?Whatever happens,? he continues, ?the BBC and BBC Worldwide will work together to ensure that we don?t just get a movie, we get the movie that everyone wants.?

So that?s the end of that, for now. Though the question remains, will David Yates have anything to do with a movie if it gets made? Or is he just delusional?

They struggle to film a 14 episode series in the allotted time as it is. There's no way the star of the show can be loaned out to make a film without causing a disruption to TV filming.

Either it stars the current TV doctor and the series has a gap year, or they continue putting out 14 episodes a year, but cast a stranger in the film.

I hate both options, which is why I'd hate for the film to become a reality.

And yet as I said before if someone offered BBC the right money for the movie rights and the BBC blinked we would get something like the Cushing movies. It's not like BBC hasn't screwed Doctor Who over before (As in killing it off, WITH PREJUDICE, in the 80's) to leasing out the Doctor to a studio to be played by Cushing...

But hey Moffat knows exactly what's going to happen because Doctor Who is HIS baby and not the property of the BBC.

Actually no, only 6 mins existed from Galaxy 4 episode 1 and that was it. There was very few visual refences, only one blurry photo of the monster from it! Now we have an entire episode!

Also now we have two eps of Underwater Menace, I think the liklihood is high that the remaining ones will be animated.


While the two eps found won't have been top of everyone's lists (mine is Massacre part 4 I think, if we had to have one ep return), it's absolutely mindblowing to have two returned! There's been so few turn up (after 1992, it was only one ep in 99 and one ep in 04) that many had thought it impossible that any others would be recovered.

There is a #3, but it's not necessarily any better, which is for them to regenerate the Doctor on TV, but have the *OUTGOING* Doctor star in the movie. [There were lots of rumours about this happening with Tennant when he was leaving]

The obvious downside to this, of course, is that it would completely undercut the new guy...

I think the Beeb are much more careful with Who these days. RTD claimed the success of the revival has convinced them it's a long term brand and things like the hiatus year are designed to assure that. There may be missteps (Moffat isn't happy they axed Confidential and we've seen merchandise go up) but there are apparently plans to give it a rest and then bring it back if the majority tire of it again. I'm sure right now especially they'd love the money a movie would bring in but first you have to finance said movie anyway.

@ Missing Episodes: I feel such a sense of geek pride that after nearly 40 years since these were lost, we've recovered 2 more. While not as pined for as Tenth Planet part 4, or as momentous as the recovery of Dalek's Masterplan Part 2 back in 02, this is still an amazing find! I wonder how they will handle releasing these on DVD. It's not enough for a solo release really, and repacking the Lost to Time collection wouldn't be economical. Maybe add them as a bonus disk to some other release.

@Movie: As much as the brand is soaring, I just don't see a movie happening, regardless of who the Doctor is or whether it is in continuity or not. The only story worth telling on that scale is the Time War, and anything less would be hard follow up as we return to the regular series.
