And a better headsculpt.

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2017 - 05:23 PM)

It actually has half decent gimmicks too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2017 - 04:03 PM)

It's still crap but at least it takes up less space.

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 10:31 AM)

I'd rather have Armada Sideswipe than Alternator Sideswipe.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 June 2017 - 09:50 AM)

What he's really doing is buying all the sideswipe, so that after the apocolypse.. He'll have an army to take ove the world!

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2017 - 09:00 AM)

We could be taking this the wrong way. What if this person means to sacrifice their own money to prevent Armada Sideswipes from falling into the hands of those who don't know better?

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 06:26 AM)

People say silly things online all the time, usually followed by a smilie or a wink. Take away the context and they go from being a joke to absurd hyperbole.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2017 - 06:07 AM)

But that would miss the entire point of hyperbole.

@  Pennpenn : (24 June 2017 - 06:03 AM)

Well that's a stupid attitude from someone who would waste a lot of money. I mean, they should just... not buy movie toys?

@  Bass X0 : (24 June 2017 - 04:52 AM)

Most insane thing I read of the day: "I would rather buy 100 Armada Sideswipes and PRiD Airachnids than buy any Bayformers crap"

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:10 PM)

His dialogue is full of allusions to his infamous lookalike, though sometimes as subversions. Oh, and sometimes he sings Karaoke. Check his rendition of "My Way", it's on Youtube.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:09 PM)

The entire idea behind the character is that he looks and talks like Hitler, but is actually a good guy. Maybe with a dickish attitude, but he's not the villain.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:08 PM)

Alfons Hatler is a supporting character from a German Edgar Wallace parody movie and its sequel.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:07 PM)

I'd like to remind everyone that Alfons Hatler exists, which is all sorts of awesome.

@  Sean Whitmore : (23 June 2017 - 03:31 PM)

Epilogue is the worst thing to happen to mankind. And I'm including, like, all the wars and stuff.

@  Evac : (23 June 2017 - 02:11 PM)

... Did Linkara cover that one?

@  Paladin : (23 June 2017 - 01:50 PM)

the comics where Barbara quit being Batgirl after she was beaten into a miscarriage.

@  Boomhauer : (23 June 2017 - 01:20 PM)

His choice to be Batman had more punch when he was a completely normal guy met with the same dillema instead of the DNA garbage that muddies the message for no other reason than to give Old Bruce another ass-kiss before the show is over. It's a boring episode whose entire concept is repeating things already known and spark Squawkbox arguments.

@  The Predaking : (23 June 2017 - 01:11 PM)

But he still chose to be batman. Not only did he chose to be batman, he did it better.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 June 2017 - 12:46 PM)

I have to agree.. Part of the problem with Epilogue is it takes away from "Terry CHOSE to be batman" and changed it a bit to "Terry was designed to be batman."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 June 2017 - 12:13 PM)

Do you mean the DCAU continuity comics or Future's End?

@  Paladin : (23 June 2017 - 11:36 AM)

can we all at least agree it's a better ending for Batman Beyond than the comics?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 June 2017 - 10:52 AM)

There was no evidence of it to support it in the show, and generally using someone to MAKE a batman is a jerkish thing to do.

@  Benbot : (23 June 2017 - 10:37 AM)

why does it matter?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 June 2017 - 10:25 AM)

I think the problem with Epilogue was making Terry effectivly Batman's son.

@  Benbot : (23 June 2017 - 10:24 AM)

what's your problem with it?

@  The Predaking : (23 June 2017 - 10:02 AM)

Epilogue give a great end to Batman Beyond and even has a Mask of the Phantasm character

@  MrBlud : (23 June 2017 - 09:55 AM)

I don't post in the Shoutbox often, but when I do, it's to confirm "Epilogue" is garbage.

@  Paladin : (23 June 2017 - 08:43 AM)

even "Epilogue" ? (braces for that argument again)

Yeah, miles is only used when accuracy doesn't actually matter, or we're dealing with americans.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 03:55 AM)

We even use "miles" in similar contexts in German even though we use kilometers for actual measurements.

@  The Doctor Who : (23 June 2017 - 02:40 AM)

Makes sense, really. Colloquialisms exist in their own weird little universe where terminology can persist after it's no longer relevant otherwise.

@  abates : (23 June 2017 - 01:17 AM)

We also measure car milage in kilometres but still call it milage.

@  Bass X0 : (22 June 2017 - 05:47 PM)

No. We still say miles. Kilometers is only really used for actual specific distances whereas miles being used in a common phrase is still miles.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 June 2017 - 04:59 PM)

People from outside the U.S.: as we are all English-proficient here, do you ever use the phrase "I saw it coming from miles away.", or do you say "kilometers" instead?

@  Paladin : (22 June 2017 - 08:22 AM)

and if you want to support your theaters, buy more concessions. because they get SHIT from the ticket sales...

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 08:15 AM)

So, we charged an extra $1 per. F'em

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 08:13 AM)

First, they threatened to stop sending us digital because we weren't upcharging for it (back when we were still "mixed" format). Then they threatened to stop sendingus 3D because we didn't upcharge for those either initially.

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 08:12 AM)

Can't blame the theater totally for those ticket prices. The studios have a say in them as well.

@  Noideaforaname : (22 June 2017 - 12:00 AM)

Charge 'em for the lice! Extra for the mice! Two percent for looking in the mirror twice!

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 June 2017 - 11:45 PM)

Even here in Canada where price gouging is commonplace, IMAX 3-D is still $19.50

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 June 2017 - 11:44 PM)

$27 a ticket? That's ludicrous

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.

An

 

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.
