What type of vehicle does Boba Fett use for time travel? A Man-DeLorean.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Admittedly, it's been a long time since I've been to a walk-in clinic, as I tend not to get sick (and the one time I do every 4-5 years, I prefer just riding it out at home), but the last time I went I'm pretty sure you could just show up, no appointment. It may be different in Quebec,though

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:36 PM)

One thing to note about health insurance in Germany is that we have a two-class system: mandatory health insurance is basically the economy class, while private health insurance is the business class.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:32 PM)

My local doctor is actually a shared office with several doctors where you will get randomly assigned to one of the doctors available that day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Also, employers are required by law to cover part of their employees' health insurance fees, so I only have to pay my part.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:28 PM)

Basic examinations and sick notes (known as "work-inability certificates" in Germany) for the employer are covered by our health insurances by default.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 November 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Around here, we can go to a walk-in clinic whenever, but might have to wait in the queue until there's a doctor available, which can take hours on a busy day. And then hope our insurance will cover anything.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2019 - 07:38 AM)

There actually are a good number of clinics around here: but the walk ins require an appointment (what?) and are only done once a week. IF you can get an appointment, you see a doctor usually within 40 minutes, but good luck getting the appointment.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

Depending on the day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

We have family doctors (called "house doctors") with regular office hours where you may need an hour or two of waiting time.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 12:50 AM)

Two weeks? That seems a little long; are there not a lot of walk-in clinics around you?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 07:01 PM)

Does germany make it quick and easy to see a doctor too? Cause an emergency doctor visit can take two weeks out here, and an emergency ROOM visit can take 18-24 hours.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:43 PM)

(Good thing is, under German law, if you call in sick during your vacation and see a doctor immediately, you get to keep your vacation days.)

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:42 PM)

Too bad. My plans wee to do two more overtime hours before having my last day of vacation for the year on Friday. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:41 PM)

So I'm currently on medical leave for a particularly stupid reason: Burned my back with a hot-water bag while sleeping last night. Though the doctor said I'm hardly the first person to have this happen to them.

Even if we pretend it's objective truth that they were both bad, then they were bad in very different ways.

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Sonic's previous movie design looked genuinely bad. The Transformers '07 designs just looked insufficiently like what certain loud and obnoxious parts of the fandom think Transformers are required to always look like.

Sure it made money but that doesn’t mean it has appealing character designs. Lot of god awful fugly faces in the Transformers movies.

@  Otaku : (12 November 2019 - 08:25 PM)

@Liege My issue with Transformers (2007) were elements I thought were unnecessary.  I know it was supposed to just be a joke, but I didn't ever need to hear about "Sam's Happy Time". >.> Which, being in awe of the first "live action" TF-film, didn't even register until I'd already purchased and watched it on DVD a few times (after seeing it in theaters 3 times).

@  Liege : (12 November 2019 - 08:22 PM)

For all the Bayisms in the 07 movie, it was tempered by Spielberg as producer. Designs aside it was an enjoyable popcorn blockbuster about a boy and his first car who happens to be an alien from another planet. They sequels are just Bay going unchecked after he proved how much bank he could bring in.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 November 2019 - 07:12 PM)

I didn't find the designs in the '07 movie to be that bad, personally. What got really offputting was how Cybertronians in general become such huge a-holes in the later films; the designs were very much secondary to their horrible personalities

@  Sabrblade : (12 November 2019 - 06:59 PM)

And yet, Transformers still broke the bank at the box office, opened up the brand to a whole new generation of fans, shot the brand up to mainstream appeal, and enabled all kinds of new collector-oriented lines and other avenues to come about. Not saying Sonic's movie will do the same for his series, but the 2007 TF movie certainly did more good than harm.

@  Bass X0 : (12 November 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Paramount changed Sonic due to fan backlash but refused to redo Transformers 2007 with new cgi appearances based on their classic forms everyone’s knows and loves, and can relate to. Trailer 1 Sonic is as appealing a design as 2007 Bumblebee...

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 November 2019 - 02:14 PM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 November 2019 - 11:33 PM)

But that requires actually going IN walmart. ;P

@  Liege : (11 November 2019 - 11:22 PM)

Pro tip for anyone hunting the for the Walmart 35th exclusives: try the seasonal aisles rather than the toy section. I found the display with all the exclusives and a bunch of the reflector wave practically untouched amongst those novelty arcade machines and a bunch of frozen merch.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (11 November 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Although that does spark an idea for me. In a new continuity, Censere the Necrobot could be the herald Cityspeaker for Quintessa the Necrotitan just to play on their monikers utilizing Greek for dead, nekrós.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (11 November 2019 - 09:26 PM)

I hate to burst your bubble, Maximus Ambus, but 90% of things said in IDW turned out to be amnesiac half-rememberings courtesy of Adaptus or outright lies courtesy of Shockwave.

@  Jenny : (11 November 2019 - 08:54 AM)

The toy's designed to look like Wipe-Out, anyway.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (11 November 2019 - 08:14 AM)

Didn't they try to retcon that into a figure of speech because that connection went against everybody else's long-term plans?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 November 2019 - 03:53 AM)

There's still some connection given Trypticon was created by Mortilus.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (11 November 2019 - 12:12 AM)

Yeah that toy doesn't exactly look like Necrobot.

@  Sabrblade : (10 November 2019 - 08:24 PM)

But.... it's just "Necro" not "Necrobot".

@  TheMightyMol... : (10 November 2019 - 05:10 PM)

But why does the God of Death need a giant space kaiju? Wait, never mind, answered my own question.

@  Maximus Ambus : (10 November 2019 - 02:15 PM)

Yowza I just realised Titans Trypticon comes with Necro AKA Censere AKA Mortilus.

@  Nevermore : (10 November 2019 - 01:15 PM)

I... think the best equivalent would actually be the British "There is room for improvement".

I think part of what made Green With Evil was the length. It wasn't a simple episode of a new brainwashed Ranger being won over in 24 minutes, it was a 2 and a half hour epic where the Rangers were put through hell. That's actually one of my most positive memories of the show, the writers LOVED doing events where you wondered how the team were going to bounce back.

However, as a whole....before the Nick deal, Jetix UK used MMPR episodes to fill the dead of night slots (do any kids actually watch these networks at that time of night?) and as I watched them in the first time for over a decade, I have to admit I found them pretty boring and cheesey. I certainly saw the cheese as a kid but never to this extent. The eyes of youth are a funny thing and part of why it annoys me when you see folks say 'Kids shows now suck! They're missing out on great stuff like *insert whatever happened to be on during their childhood*!"
That said, I think it helped that MMPR had a knowing self awareness at times. Some of the later seasons lost that and took themselves a bit too seriously to be any fun.

Not normally.

Instead, that time of night is usually reserved for adults and older teens who are still awake.

Ever since Nickelodeon arrived on the scene in the 1980s, the executives in charge of kids' programming networks have been faced with the question of what to do past a certain hour of the evening, as the prime viewing audience is most likely going to be asleep at that point.

For Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, and The Hub, the answer was simple: gradually shift the programming from kid-friendly to adult-friendly. Nick and The Hub use vintage sitcoms and dramas, while CN goes to Adult Swim.

Nicktoons and Nickelodeon Kids just air re-runs of earlier programming.

The rest, like JETIX and Boomerang, either air "retro" shows or select genres that would appeal to older fans anyway.

When I was a little kid my brother lived in Japan and on one of his visits he brought me a toy of the Power Ranger zords combined with the Dragonzord. Flash forward a year or two later after Power Rangers debut and that showed up in an episode. Was a very weird "Hey, wait a minute..." moment (didn't know they harvested a Japanese show for the series when I was little, of course.)

I echo the sentiments of In Space, or at least I very much enjoyed it after years of not watching Power Rangers and then catching it on a random Saturday. Had interesting characters, including the villains, had an epic scale and actual story arc. Well, at least, it seemed to get really good after the crossover with the live action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that FOX had for a while... that episode was icon-kicker.gif .

I downloaded and starting watching the In Space episodes last year to see how they held up. They were pretty terrible so I stopped. But, then again, I hadn't made it to/past the TMNT crossover ep. So maybe I should've hung in there just a little longer.

Thing is, I live in the UK where such blocks don't exist. Most of the kids networks went 24 hours or close years back but they don't really have any programming for it, so the result is you get 11pm-6am full of lesser shows CN has rights to on a limited run of episodes night after night or Nick showing SpongeBob and iCarly at gone midnight. CN at least shows some of their 90s Cartoon Cartoons between 9-11pm but, again, limited choice of episodes in endless loop. Basically there's no reason for these networks to keep such a schedule if they don't have anything to air, unlike the American networks who get use out of those hours. Is iCarly hip with the stoner crowd?

Some networks just do re-runs as filler. In some instances it's a repeat of the night's prime-time lineup, while in other instances it's just whatever's handy.

Yep. Being a White Ranger red herring (and fanservice) were really the only reasons they brought in Richie. Though there were hints of a possible relationship between him and Trini, nothing came out of it beyond some mild flirting.

None of this is on the DVD since there are no special features.. but I've been doing some research on the actors and I was surprised to learn that David Yost walked off the set and quit the show during Zeo due to the gay bashing and harassment he had received from producers, writers and such from the show.

And also that Thuy Trang died in a car accident in 2001.

Actually, Trang received an "in memorium" after an episode of Lightspeed Rescue.

...which really, really creeped me out after-the-fact.


The episode in question had the team's robot feeling frustrated because he couldn't see the future; it knew what was going on in the present, and could still contact Time Force HQ, but due to the actions of the rangers and the villains the immediate future had become a cloud he couldn't see into.

The moral of the episode was "live for today, because you don't know what's coming in the future."

...a moral that was driven home by the robot actually seeing into the future.

...and promptly flipping out because the future entailed "buildings being destroyed and a city being on fire."

Cue the "in memorium".

Why did it freak me out?

Episode debut: 8 September 2001.

I think we all know what happened three days later: buildings being destroyed, a city being on fire, and memorials all over the television.

Time Force.

And yeah, the show did a quick shift in themes after 9/11. Ransik was a bit less sympathetic, with his terrorist tendencies played down--and later semi-handwaved as partially being the influence of Orgs, the enemies of the Wild Force team. Shots of buildings being destroyed and similar things were edited out as well.

When does it get better in season 1? Back when the 2010 reversion aired, I watched all of that, and then continued watching the first season online from where the reversion left off. And, even with such multi-parters as "Green With Evil", "Island of Illusion", "The Green Candle", "Doomsday", and "Return of an Old Friend", it never got better. Out of ALL of those season 1 episodes I watched, only ONE episode ever really reached any levels of "awesome", and that was "Return of an Old Friend Part I", with Part II going back down to the same level of "okay" as the rest of the series.

I didn't get to continue watching into season 2 due to my life becoming busier at the time, but I do own the "Best of Power Rangers" DVD that contains the "White Light" two-parter, and watching that showed that that two-parter was FAR less cringeworthy than the content of season 1.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I'd say I'm about 2/3 through disc 1.

The problem is that the show is just SO dull. I mean, I understand these shows have formulas to them, but this is taking that to the extreme. The random stock footage from JuuRangers (or whatever) doesn't help. Here's the run down

- Some nonsensical event or situation occurs at the local juice bard/gym
- Rita mocks them for their stupid event and decides this is the perfect time to take over the world
- bullies Finster into making 'the perfect monster' for whatever non-situation exists
- monster gets sent to a random dump or quarry in some stock footage.
- idiot robot freaks out and tells them to go there
- stock footage power rangers defeat the monster, it grows big, they call the zords and defeat it again
- Rita grates on about how her plans have been ruined
- The finish whatever nonsense they were doing at the juice bar

That's not even taking into account the Bulk and Skull shenanigans... this is EVERY EPISODE. There's literally no point to anything anyone does.

How this show ever got popular is beyond me.


On the other hand, someone pointed me towards the JuuRangers show and that's actually not too terrible. But I've only watched a few episodes of that.

It's Zyuranger, Kal

"Disabled people dont have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnt a special need. Its a basic human right. Its a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."
