In my Marvel comic canon the second wave of special teams were handpicked active robots whose experience would theoretically make more stable combiners, the Combaticons came from Cybertron, the Protectobots were imprinted from crystals explaining both Onslauhghts ancestry and First Aid's experience.

How long until IDW puts out an Optimus Pride Month comic?

@  Cyoti : (18 June 2021 - 03:32 PM)

Even with B5, it didn't follow its original 5-year plan. Summaries from the supplementary materials for the scriptbooks demonstrates that was originally planned was very different from the actual product. Sinclair's actor's departure seemingly changed the show to the point that the stuff with the Vorlons/Shadows, the Minbari and the ending were all changed. Mapping out a show years in advance is difficult because of changing bts stuff like writers/actors leaving the show or suddenly having to retool because of ratings/execs. No plan survives intact especially in a chaotic environment of television production.

@  Rycochet : (18 June 2021 - 11:27 AM)

To be like Babylon 5, you need to cram a 2 season story arc into one because you fear being cancelled, then get further seasons you have no more material for. You also need a spinoff which the network heads don't want and do everything in their power to kill it while it's on air.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 June 2021 - 10:33 AM)

The required effort is probably why we don't have babylon 6; TNG.

@  Dekafox : (18 June 2021 - 10:23 AM)

Everyone wants to be like Babylon 5 but no one wants to put in the effort

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 09:36 AM)

And then, after five years of hosting their own official podcast where they would answer fan questions and always encouraged their audience to pay attention to the mysteries, after the show had ended, they claimed the show was never really about the mysteries, it was all about the characters.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 09:34 AM)

What really bugs me with "Lost" is that the producers had willfully negotiated a set end date with the network halfway through season 3 (the show ended with season 6, as planned) specifically so they could plan out the plot for the remainder of the show. Then... the plot wasn't resolved properly.

@  tigerhawk : (18 June 2021 - 04:17 AM)

By then I had lost interest in arc TV shows, I followed a few and got the impression they were just making them up as they went along. Seemed to be a trend starting with new Galactica and Lost though in actuality began with The X Files and has become a trope called 'The Chris Carter Effect'.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:12 AM)

I think it was season 3 part 1 specifically, since they had two separate plot "arcs" for season 3.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:11 AM)

They threw everything in there, with no clear story structure, no clear stakes, and characters flip-flopping wherever the episode's writer needed them to go for their half-baked plot.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:10 AM)

Season 3 was the worst, with a terrible meandering random events plot.

@  tigerhawk : (17 June 2021 - 11:59 PM)

'save the cheerleader' then in season 3 he tears her skull open, scans her power and she simply heals. They didn't think any of it through.

@  Shockwave 75 : (17 June 2021 - 07:04 PM)

Well, you know Hollywood; if something's popular, run it into the ground!

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

And then there was the Writers' Strike, which isn't the show's fault.

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

Yeah, Sylar should've been, if not killed off, at least left to rest.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

It never truly recovered from that.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

Season 1 was good until the finale.

@  Paladin : (17 June 2021 - 09:37 AM)

Uh, I've been trying to get the right search string but wasn't there a Love, Death and Robots thread here in General Discussion?

I just wanted to say that season 2 was out and see if folks wanted to comment on it.

But I can't find the thread.

I prefer the MJ edit too, but it's one thing to criticize a pic, and another to post a photoshopped version w/out asking and present it as "fixed". Doesn't matter if the original art is bad or if the artist is a douche. Use your words to explain why it's off, and/or draw your own version entirely.

The 'fixing artwork' thing made me think of the False Equivalence Short packed strip. I'll have to link it but it totally made me laugh when I first saw it.

https://www.shortpac...lse-equivalence

It's not the same as fixing artwork tho. That's art style and anatomy. The Short packed strip is preference. Just reminded me, is all.

I dunno, I think it's going to depend on context whether I'd consider it a party foul. When the original art is professional, published stuff and you're using an edit to make a point about it, you're not in a position to hurt that artist's feelings or benefit from their work, and no description in words is going to make the kind of immediate impression an edit will. And on a smaller scale, sometimes the easiest way to demonstrate an anatomy problem or something is to make a quick edit. The original artist likely isn't going to like it, but those are valid forms of commentary IMO.

Of course, there's always "artistic license" and stylization, too. I criticize tec's pics in the Cheesecake thread in Mayhem all the time, sometimes with counter examples, but that doesn't stop him from posting pics with questionable anatomy. :D

You are very nearly correct. It's a shot from "Ambassador Magma", a tokusatsu TV series (based off the Manga of the same name) that ran from the summer of 1966, to the summer of 1967. It was actually Japan's first tokusatsu series in color, as it beat "Ultraman" to air by a mere 6 days. Magma is the name of the heroic golden 50-foot giant who fights a variety of daikaiju, and possesses the ability to shoot gamma-ray blasts from his antennas, missiles from his chest, and can transform himself into a golden rocket. 

 

713c4bb65f14ac1626590e7d80cbc9d3.jpg

 

It was later dubbed into English and retitled "The Space Giants", where it eventually found a home on TBS in the late 1970's as part of their afternoon line-up. A bunch of the character names were completely changed for the dub, including Magma, who was renamed Goldar, and reimagined as a robot rather than a living giant forged from gold.

 

As far as I was concerned, this show was the 2nd best thing ever when I was around 9 years old, only lagging behind Doctor Who. There was also a station that ran "Ultraman" in syndication at around the same time, but it only ran on Saturday mornings at, like, 6:30 AM or some such, which was TOTAL BULLSHIT, and I only ever managed to watch it a couple of times.
