The toys had some good parts. They also had Side Swipe.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 June 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Energon and Cybertron WERE boring... and Starscream was just messed up in those shows....

@  TheMightyMol... : (05 June 2020 - 07:47 PM)

Eh. It had a few ideas that could've been interesting. They just never went anywhere because it was easier to have Megatron brainwash everyone.

@  Nevermore : (05 June 2020 - 07:41 PM)

Energon's biggest problem is that it was made.

@  Paladin : (05 June 2020 - 05:15 PM)

remember when Energon had to switch animation styles because their CGI models were completely incapable of expressing emotions ?

@  Thundercrack... : (05 June 2020 - 04:42 PM)

And what was done to Demolisher to a lesser extent.

@  Thundercrack... : (05 June 2020 - 04:34 PM)

Energon's biggest problem is what it did to Starscream.

@  TheMightyMol... : (05 June 2020 - 04:00 PM)

I mean, they took all of that and the series is still dull enough to use as a sleep aid, so....

@  wonko the sane? : (05 June 2020 - 02:46 PM)

It's a food source, a weapon and so unstable that looking at it funny makes it explode. If energon is boring, blame the writers not the element.

@  TheMightyMol... : (05 June 2020 - 02:17 PM)

Energon's big problem is that it's boring.

Watch it in Japanese with English subs. Karyuudo did all that work for us so that we could. ;)

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.

Yea not really new information other than confirming there will be a new companion incoming mid season. So...

While I am sad to see Amy and Rory go, That is british TV for you. Still, as much as I enjoyed their 2 previous send offs (God Complex/Wedding), I worry what this last one will bring.
Clearing out some old TFs and Mugenbine in my BST Thread. You know you want some of these.

So I'm watching "Christmas Carol: The Movie" the animated one with Nick Cage. And it starts off in live action, The reason I post this here? Because Charles Dickens is played by Simon Callow, who also portrayed him in "Unquiet Dead." Hell, the entire start of the movie feels like the scene where they meet him. He pulls up to a theater and goes into to give a reading of his story; and get shown up; though by a mouse rather then a gas ghost. Just a cool little fact, of "Hey I know that guy!"

There's like, just over 24 hours until it airs in the UK. I can see myself forgetting though.

Obviously there'll be no trailer at the end icon-screamer.gif

And then there's the hiatus icon-primal.gif

But at least there's new Sherlock coming up icon-ironhide.gif

We have Pony Chats in there during new episodes.

Overall liked the episode. Ventured into emo-doctor too much at the end, which they need to rip those pages from the play book.

The opener was awesome. It says alot about the Doctor that when what looks like a refugee from Revenge of the Sith trundles into Earth orbit and threatens to blow us to kingdom come, we know the ship itself exploding is down to that one man.

However overall it was weak. Moffat is easily able to make the Doctor a charming character with snappy dialogue and great character moments (that last scene...wow). However the main focus of this special didn't hold up. I could see a generally good idea but lots of things let it down. The kids were annoying, the mother could barely act and seemed to accept things way too quickly and overall everything felt rushed. I think he would have been better suited setting the story around the house, not stealing an idea from Narnia and pushing a 5th Doctor reference. The start and end were great but everything in between....meh.

I'd like to rip overuse/misuse of the term "emo" from many a book.

Personally I liked it, and loved the ending.

Is that somehow not a valid complaint? I'm pretty sure for the last 15 minutes there only dialogue was some variation of 'Mummy' or 'Daddy'.

I loved the ending as well, and it really feels like the end of story arc all its own; considering how much trouble he's had just sitting down and connecting with the family he's developed through his companions. I am seriously gonna miss the Ponds after season 7.

Well, its obviously valid to you. However IMHO, if you found those kids annoying, especially given the situation, I'd assume you'd find virtually any child annoying.
