@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

Surprisingly, out of the 3 premieres we've had so far, this one has me most interested in the year to come.

 

Appreciate them bringing in Radu's coffee shop from the Kyle Rayner Green Lantern books.

 

Shouldn't Cody Rhodes' character be held in a metahuman prison?  Obviously, the real reason why he's there is because Amell wanted to do his friend a favor, but it seems a little unlikely that the character would be put there, or could be held there for long.

I'm actually rather curious about the "Grown up William seeks Oliver on Lian Yu" B-plot. Is it the future? The past with time travel involved? Something else entirely? Who knows.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

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 didn't really catch on to that until I read the talkbacks.  That scene was so dark, plus I'm so used to Roy's eerily-smooth face.  This rougher look definitely suits him though.

 

I keep going back and forth on whether Roy is the new Green Arrow.  GA had Roy's habit of doing unnecessary parkour in the middle of battle, but I think that's meant to mislead us.

I stopped watching the show four years ago, I found it to be too repetitive and I didn't care for them repeating the same lessons over and over.

While I'll be a bit sad to see Arrow end but I think its about time, really, I think the show kind of lost its way in season 6 when they no longer had Oilver's back story and the season stories began to drag out and the villians aren't that great, the first four were desent, the fifth ok, I guess but he was bit more forgettable, the sixth, main villian, he just struck me as a bit of a moron or a hopeless cause, he built up to be someone who meant to be cunning and smart, yet, I just feel he lacks something to really make him really great, I think its what the actor brings to the role, he feels a bit standard bad guy, it might be just me on that! At least we can say Arrow had a good run with 8 seasons and two spin off series set in the same Universe, even if one is about travelling through time!

Based on comments made in interviews, it's been very clear that Stephen Amell was going to be done with the show after season 8.  I was wondering if they were going to try to keep it going with Green Arrow 2, but recent events in-universe made that very unlikely even before this news came along.  It's still sad news though, especially when watching Amell get choked up on Facebook Live.

 

Judging from the shortened season, it looks like Arrow will bow out shortly after Crisis, and Batwoman will come in as a midseason replacement.

CWerse would be a good name for it. I wouldn't be surprised to see the CWerse start to get cancelled as soon as the contracts run out. I mean, DC is pushing their own streaming service and all, so it would make sense to push the shows there.

It'll always be the Arrowverse to me.

I think even a smaller broadcast network like the CW can still attract a larger audience than a young streaming service at this point. The bigger danger to the Arrowverse that I see is its ability to hold on to its leads.

Melissa Benoist definitely has opportunities beyond Supergirl, I seriously doubt that she'll stay for 8 years. Grant Gustin doesn't seem to have as many outside projects, but after Amell, he's been there the longest, so I feel it's only a matter of time before he's done.

As an ensemble show, I think Legends can weather cast departures better than the other shows, but I feel its high costs and low ratings will cause it to end sooner rather than later.

It's been said that season 5 of Supergirl may be it's last (we are currently on season 4).  The rumor says that the ratings aren't very good and DC is considering making a Supergirl movie (with their whole not having more than one representation thing that would give them extra incentive to end the TV series).

As of now Flash seems to be the only show that still feels fun. Arrow has run it's course, and Supergirl is running it's politcal agenda much too strongly the last few seasons. Legends feels like it's been an afterthought since it was created. While still fun it's still clearly the Arrowverses b-team effort. Of course it sounds like Cisco is leaving the Flash after this season too, so there goes a good part of my favorite cast members there.
