@  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.

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 09:34 PM)

@  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.

Plus, giving the Joker a definitive origin kind of undoes a lot of what makes the Joker so remarkable these days, since he has no real set origin story.

 

Well, the current "Zero Year" arc in the New 52 might not sit too well with you, then...

 

I checked out before New52 ever began, so it's a non-issue to me, as I imagine it would be to most viewers since a big number for comic sales now is, what 300,000?  Put that against the actual millions of people watching TV and I am very much not alone.


Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.

Lots of on set shots:

http://www.dailymail...set-Gotham.html

 

I don't like huge 'for the sake of coincidence' coincidences in my fiction, so I'm not thrilled that it seems like Bruce and Selena know each other. I hope they just cross paths and leave it at that.

 

With the actress that plays Catwoman it seems like they're going for a 'young Michelle Pfeiffer' look for her since she has a similar facial structure and her eyes are spaced far apart.

Their biggest mistake is casting kids for Bruce and any other reoccurring character (assuming they're reoccurring) because kids grow up fast.

 

Hopefully this is all just in the pilot to really kick it off with Bruce's parents being killed.

There is nothing pointing to Bruce and Selena knowing each other (that I'm aware of) other than a picture of the two actors standing together.

 

They are planned as reoccurring characters as one elements of the series is Jim Gordon's concern over the orphan left over from his first big case in Gotham, the death of the Waynes. Selena is a troubled street kid apparently.

I hope they're making this Bullock the DCAU/Arkham series version of the character instead of the comic books version. Still no Harlene Quinzel or Jack Napier, but I can't imagine they'd possibly leave the childhood incarnations of these characters out.

 

....

 

Part of me kinda hopes this doesn't mess up the continuity of Smallville so that they can leave open the possibility to do a crossover episode with Tom Welling someday.

Eventual origin of the Joker has been mentioned.

Bullock has been described as a break the rules to enforce the law rough type.

 

...Tom Welling will be in his early to mid 40s by the time the kid is old enough to even be a first year Batman. Besides which, Smallville was a CW licensed show. Gotham is a Fox licensed show.

Not to mention that Bruce/Batman has already made frequent appearances in the Smallville Season 11 comics, which appear to be canon to the show.

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 will say that if Bullock is a major player, and played well, I will probably just watch this for him. Bullock's has become one of my favorite supporting characters in the franchise.

Something I posted on another board...wondering of thoughts here:

 

 

That's an interesting point you hint around. This isn't a show on the CW. Fox is a big boy network and a show has to get decent ratings to survive. (And this isn't the fanboy "fox hates sci-fi shows" conspiracy crap...like they invest millions of dollars so the show can fail).

The show has to thread the needle of being a good cop show, inventive enough so people will watch it, but not SO different from the safe stuff they like because they're mainstream TV audiences. Bring in the comic book stuff, but not so much that it turns off or scares or confuses the mainstream folks. Make sure people know this isn't Batman the series...but at the same time make people want to turn in because it's totally Batman the series.

It doesn't have the lax atmosphere of CW to operate in, or the integrated corporate support SHIELD has. FOX is surely paying a pretty penny for the rights to do this show, so from a tv business side, there's some interesting hurdles to jump over.

Has to be Bullock - not only looks like him but well, he has a police badge - I don't think DA's have those. :)

 

I hate Smallville, but I like Arrow - so hoping this will not mess too much with established characters, it could be good. I just hope they leave Bruce and Alfred on the sidelines and don't make Gordon into someone who shapes Bruce into Batman, as that'd be silly. Bruce has to grow up, and leave to travel the world anyway, eventually.

 

Hope the Penguin will look the part. I don't want a Burton-esque guy, but he should be short and with a long nose, being NOT handsome is kind of a defining factor as to why he became bitter at the world.
