Circuit-breaker '84, this is Megatron's rubber duck. We've got ourselves a Rodimus Convoy. Do you copy? Over.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 07:06 AM)

I'm not going to sit here and bicker with you. I've made my point very clear and have nothing more to say on the issue.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 July 2020 - 07:00 AM)

I can't do anything to prevent hurricanes either but it'd be absurd to suggest I therefore shouldn't talk about them.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:57 AM)

Basically neither you nor I even like South Park anyways so the best you can do is leave it alone rather than suggest it is corrupting hearts and minds.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 July 2020 - 06:55 AM)

In that case I'm... not sure what the point is?

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:53 AM)

Nobody should be taking their morals from South Park. You can't prevent people from doing it. It's an artistic work with fans. I don't think I'm off-track.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 July 2020 - 06:51 AM)

As far as I can tell you just of course'd the thing you were poopooing...

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:47 AM)

Also, this is starting to get a bit too serious for the shoutbox (though it already was)

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:47 AM)

"It's that they're internalizing the overall attitude that the writers display through the show's writing." Of course, that's South Park's "artistic" style. It's what South Park's audience wants, and that's okay.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 July 2020 - 06:47 AM)

You can probably finish the sentence "I got 50% of my sense of humor from" with the name of some fictional work.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:45 AM)

And it still wouldn't be S.W.A.T.'ss or Grey's Anatomy's or South Park's fault.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 July 2020 - 06:45 AM)

The idea isn't that people are taking South Park's in-universe parody moral lessons seriously (though as Nevermore points out, you can't safely assume that isn't also happening). It's that they're internalizing the overall attitude that the writers display through the show's writing.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:45 AM)

"People say" those people are right, and you should listen to them. We can't protect people from themselves, but you can advise them well.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2020 - 06:27 AM)

So many medical disasters because someone took what they saw on a hospital show at face value.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2020 - 06:25 AM)

So many people who think police and court procedure works like it does in Hollywood, and act accordingly. Sometimes to their own disadvantage, sometimes just to the frustration of well-meaning authorities.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2020 - 06:24 AM)

People say "you shouldn't take your morals from a TV show" all the time, but regardless of how these people want things to work doesn't mean other people aren't doing it anyways.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:01 AM)

And I mean, if you're looking for a 1950s conservative position on something, it's certainly that a TV show is rotting children's minds.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:00 AM)

Conservatives are not hiding under the bed waiting to ruin... uh... Family Guy of all things? And like, nobody should be taking their morals from South Park. Expecting such things is impractical.

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

It was just the cartoon with those foul mouthed kids in the UK until that bubble burst after the movie. Reviewers joked the movies target audience would be unable to see it for the rating.

@  Paladin : (15 July 2020 - 05:14 PM)

see also: "South Park." the show that poisoned a generation by teaching them "it's stupid to feel for other people."

@  Rycochet : (15 July 2020 - 11:02 AM)

With Brian, he stopped being the voice of reason and started to be the right wing notion of a liberal, someone who's lazy, pretentious, doesn't work at anything, is every bit as abusive as the rest of the cast and only wins arguments with strawmen.

@  Otaku : (15 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

Of course, I stopped enjoying Family Guy around that time, so my bias is clear. XP

@  Otaku : (15 July 2020 - 10:54 AM)

Is it because they changed or we changed?  Stuff that was charming, or at least, funny at first can get really annoying the longer you know a person... and I find that can go for fictional characters as well.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 July 2020 - 03:45 AM)

One example is Family Guy where around season 8 Brian is suddenly reviled by everyone and has acted way out of character since.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 July 2020 - 03:44 AM)

My least favorite thing in fiction is when it changes hands so you get a author, writer or showrunner who hates a character or messes with a arc/layout.

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.)

In spite of a high-profile break with the Transformers franchise and a media storm that followed alleging that she and filmmaker Michael Bay couldn?t get along, Megan Fox is back in Bay?s fold, starring as (probably) April O?Neil in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reimagining, Ninja Turtles.

Now referring to the film as ?TMNT,? Bay just released a brief statement that simply read, ?TMNT: we are bringing Megan Fox back into the family!?

April O?Neil is starting to make the rounds, most likely on the grounds that she?s the female lead in all of the source material. It?s unlikely Bay will add another without removing April first.

That?s awful friendly, considering that not long ago, Fox compared Bay to Hitler on the set of the Transformers films and called him ?a nightmare to work for.?


I hope and pray this is NOT true.

It's a good thing I'm too sick to flip any tables right now.

Yeah... This is really bad new... Its one thing if she's playing her own character, and its flat. But an established character like April needs to be more brains then looks.

I'm sort of flat lined over this possible news. Megan Fox is eye candy, not sure I'm willing to give her much beyond that. Also, she's probably about the age to play the traditional April role. Oddly, having given the new series a chance, I kind of like the profile of the new April even more. I'm sure this will be Bay's own re-imagining of the character, but whatever. I can't hate it 'til I see it.

If Shia stars as Casey Jones, I quit.

Megan Fox is inoffensive, even entertaining, enough, in a supporting role, but I can't really see her pulling off a character like April O'Neal.

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 really hope Nickelodeon doesn't think they need to ditch the CGI TMNT, and come up with something that fits in with Bay's movie (other studios have done similar to good shows, Hasbro got rid of Renegades, for that reason). Especially, if he ends up turning the story into Alien Turtles & ditches the Mutant/Ninja motif of the comics/cartoon.

Frankly, I'd like to see this movie bomb enough that Bay's movie career is done. I can't stand his movies, which are all show & no content.

And yes, I was too lazy to come up with a decent TF related forum name, and just *GASP* used my own.

I don't really get the hatred people have for Megan Fox in particular.

While she is far away from being oscar material, she is not too bad really.

And yeah, she is attractive. And yeah, thats kind of her appeal for producers and directors.

Everybody is on attack/defence, depending on stance, when somebody really attractive makes it in Hollywood, it seems.

Its the "she don't really deserve it" gene most of us have. I am as guilty as everyone, to be fair. icon-hotrod.gif
