@  wlg3 : (28 April 2017 - 01:15 AM)

I really enjoy the creative sub forums of TFW, though, like their kitbash and fan art forums. The creative forums have lots of talented, friendly people and is an active, supportive community.

@  wlg3 : (28 April 2017 - 01:13 AM)

Gotta agree with Evac... TFW has a lot of cool, talented people, but they're overwhelmingly outnumbered by unbearable neckbeards

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 10:20 PM)

I do enjoy the TFW podcast. and that subforum's usually very civil. It's the best place to actually talk about TFers there :D also the Radicons forum is ok if you just like looking at kitbash pr0n

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 10:18 PM)

There's some cool people on the site, thankfully. It's just the morons tend to outnumber them... Which is generally the rule on most forums thanks to the GIFT.

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 10:17 PM)

In all honesty, the better parts of the site are the non-TF parts.

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 10:13 PM)

yeah, and their love of 3p is just...i don't get it.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 10:03 PM)

TFW can be... literal with the rules sometimes. Like, a discussion about favorite human characters gets LOCKED if you mention Agent Fowler because "all Prime discussion belongs in the RiD forums".

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 09:48 PM)

Also, as far as TFW's No Politics goes...it's nice in theory but then you end up with the current IDW stories that lean HEAVILY into politics and religion. I've had more than a few lengthy posts exploring the parallels between the IDW Decepticon movement and various real world socialist movements deleted because it was technically "politics." So hug 'em. I really only visit there these days to poke around the podcast subforum.

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 09:45 PM)

My person canon is that the Quintessons created Cybertron as a factory to make the TFers as mechs, but they became self aware and they revolted. then Cybertronian society began to develop and the events of the revolt became mythologised as the stories of the Knights of Cyberton, the Thirteen, etc...real events that became the basis for religion, essentially.

@  Rycochet : (27 April 2017 - 06:49 PM)

Transformers believe they were created by <X>, others believe they were created by <Y> and/or <Z>. There are lots of theories, disagreements but ultimately nobody knows for sure.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 05:11 PM)

Squid robits build machines. Machines decide they had enough of that and kicked the squid robits off the planet. Everything's pretty chill for a while until machines get mad for dumb reasons and break the planet. THE END

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2017 - 04:22 PM)

Primus created Cybertron and The Thirteen. Then later, the Quintessons come to the planet they call Seibertron and use Primus' power; the plasma energy chamber to forge military robots Destrons and consumer robots Cybertrons. The Cybertrons and Destrons rise up and drive the Quintessons away but are unable to live in peace with each other. And so the Cybertron population become the Autobot army and the Destrons become Decepticons, with the Autobots renaming their planet Cybertron. Far far later still, bacteria that was present on the asteroid Primus imprisoned himself within has evolved into organic life within Cybertron...

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 03:35 PM)

But aside from the ending Trent and Siph made for them at FunPub, the 3H Wreckers comics kinda sucked.

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 03:34 PM)

That's what the 3H Wreckers comics kind of did, actually.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 April 2017 - 03:30 PM)

So, what? The maker of the makers kinda thing?

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2017 - 02:55 PM)

My fanon is both the Quintesson and Primus origins. They're compatible.

@  Rycochet : (27 April 2017 - 02:37 PM)

I prefer the profile book/movie interpretation of the Quintessons, a race whose entire purpose is to capture and execute those who escape Unicron.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 02:03 PM)

I like the Quintesson origin partly because it's a twist on the robot revolution cliche, partly because of the irony of a people uniting against their own creators just to fall into endless civil war, and mostly because i just really like the Quintessons themselves.

@  Diecast : (27 April 2017 - 12:03 PM)

I preferred the Primus origin until it became the more common origin, fiction wise.

@  ▲ndrusi : (27 April 2017 - 11:08 AM)

Since the analogy to humans isn't perfect, it could also be interpreted as closer to "maternity ward."

@  Locoman : (27 April 2017 - 11:02 AM)

I think the most unfortunately named Transformer in their society would probably be Hot Spot, which is like having a human named "Placenta."

@  Locoman : (27 April 2017 - 11:02 AM)

Confusing, I bet.

For the record? I'm kinda sick of LMDs at this point. I hope this arc comes to an end soon, because it's feeling a little old.

 

Also, Radcliffe's plan to grant humanity immortality? Death's better than that.

An earlier episode revealed that Radcliffe had constructed an LMD of himself - that was the other LMD in play beside the one of May.

 

Can't say anything about the framework, however, but I don't think everyone went in.

Just because Radcliffe turned out to be an LMD, doesn't preclude that another LMD was in play. Remember, Radcliffe also said that the other LMD might have a shot at the Darkhold.

Radcliffe also said he had no chance to grab the Darkhold. Hence why I'm not convinced he was talking about his own LMD.

As for the framework, we saw Coulson & Daisy Skyquake jump in together. The we later saw Mack tearing off his helmet & berating Fitz for creating such a thing.

As in, it was so amazingly good I'm not sure I'll be able to make it until April for the follow up. Fine episode. Kept me guessing straight to the end.

I really hope the whole remaining story-arc isn't built around Daisy and Jemma gathering up the troops within the framework.  That would make it difficult to tie-up the Ghost Rider story from the beginning of the season.

 

I want them all out within two espisodes, max, and have them all just move on.

I really wish the writers would remember that Jemma survived on her own in Hell World for quite a while, and as traumatized as that left her in the short term, she shouldn't be the "panics the instant things go sour" damsel in distress.

 

Also, Daisy has Rasengan, apparently.

That was my initial reaction to the scene, too...but, upon further reflection, she just looked a perfectly convincing Fitz straight into his eyes while stabbing him to death in the most intimate way.

I think she just went into shock.

Episode.

 

 

Jed Whedon can write and direct more as far as I'm concerned, that was amazing.

 

As far as the returning Hydra and Ward: I don't mind. I know it's fake world, so I think Ward may get that final redemption arc. And this season has been so great, I don't think we're going to be dropping the ball at this stage. (God, I hope we don't).

The latter more than the former, for me.

This episode was one of the whole show's best, and I've been reasonably invested this season in comparison to the last two, which just seemed interminable. Actual twists and stakes I care about will do that. This ep (following from the immediate previous one, and the build they've done so far) delivers -- gutpunch after gutpunch.

Wonderful performances too. Ming-Na has gotten opportunities to stretch a bit from her normally stoic character frame, and makes each showing count. And Natasha ELIZABETH and Iain are SO GOOD. (I actually had to think a bit to remember their real names because their show names seem such better matches now, haha.)

Hey,

Spoiler

 

 

It's been a few days.  I'm skipping the spoiler tags.

 

Totally agree on Fitz's behavior.  I was thinking the same thing.

 

Also, regarding Hydra and the framework.  In the framework. the characters are able to live their lives without their regrets.  Coulson's regret was becoming a Shield agent.  As noted by the Russian, Coulsen is so central to the MCU, both with the Avengers and Shield, that without him, Hydra wins.
