It seems like, with these kind of things, anything not TF-specific is either in an existing thread or just not discussed since they're not part of something deemed important enough to get its own thread already.

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Yeah, but it's for Transformers specifically

@  Gryllid : (19 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

There is. It's called "SDCC 2019 thread"

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:24 PM)

no general SDCC thread?

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:08 PM)

I never even bothered to see it.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2019 - 10:30 AM)

O never hated it, the whole thing was an Indiana Jones movie. I didn't care for the CGI, but that's just nature of the beast.

@  Telly : (18 July 2019 - 09:18 PM)

after 38 years and i dont know how many viewings, today is the first time i noticed indiana jones doesnt use a revolver in the bar fight in raiders...

@  Kalidor : (18 July 2019 - 05:33 PM)

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

Scratch that; that's insulting to honest salads. Whatever that was was the text equivalent of hamburger.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:38 AM)

Would you like some dressing to go with your word salad?

@  Paladin : (16 July 2019 - 09:34 AM)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

i dont understand this:

 

 

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: My assumption has been that the reason this TV show can be done — rights-wise — is because Batman himself is not in it. That way, it doesn’t overlap with any films. Is that correct?

 

and im not being snarky lol i really dont get why batman cant be on tv

 

Could be referring to one of two things...

 

1) Could be assuming this is a Fox licensed show, similar to how Fox has a license to use X-Men, which would mean there are two "owners" of live action rights for Bat characters, WB (the movies) and Fox (the TV show). However, from what i've seen so far, this is a WB made show, that Fox is buying for the network (like how Netflix is buying a Daredevil series from Marvel, rather than making a Daredevil series themselves).  So it's WB owning the show and the movies, so no licensing issues.

 

or

 

2) In the past, WB movie division people have been very much against having the bat characters show up elsewhere.  This is why you pretty much didn't see any non-Batman bat characters in JL/JLU for example.

 

It most likely has to do with that ongoing legal battle for the 1966 Batman show that seems to be finally coming to some kind of compromise. 

 

 

No.  Batman 66 would have no bearing over this show.  The legal issues of that had nothing to do with the rights to Batman, just to the actual episodes of the show. (It's possible that Fox used their rights as a bargaining chip to get Gotham...which would be a good sign for it being given time to find it's audience.)

I am personally hoping Bruce remains a side-character. Certainly, as a kid he did NOT travel the world and prepare himself to become a crimefighter, that came when he was a young adult.

 




Thing is, you don't really have to like Superheroes for this show to work. There shouldn't be ANY in this show. Related to Batman or not, at its core this is a Crime Drama about a city that is slowly going to hell in hand-basket to the point where it seems like nothing can save it.

 

Yeah. Take Batman and Joker and replace them with any National Security Agent and Terrorist Madman and the plot of The Dark Knight doesn't suffer any. I can't see why something like that wouldn't work on the small screen. For a "big" as the movie was, the focus was extremely small.


 

 

You just summed up Skyfall's story there. :)

Considering Fox's trends, I'm not going to get into any sort of fuss when the show probably won't last more than 2-3 seasons at best.  And that's probably more due to the strength of the brand than anything.

I dig it. Though Cobblepot being branded a "low level thug" disappoints me a bit. Still, I maintain hopes for this series. At the very least, it'll make for a fun season of television like Birds of Prey.

I think her name is Fish?

 

She's the present underworld boss ruling Gotham at the time of the Waynes' murder. She's the primary antagonist for not just Gordon and Bullock, but Cobblepot too.

Probably Cobblepot turns informant to get Fish out of the way, thereby establishing his "perfectly legit" reputation even as he takes over her business (after liquidating everyone still loyal to her).

Nah. Doesn't fit the atmosphere of the story they seem to be setting up. My guess is Cobblepot and Fish are the counterparts to Gordon and Bullock. Showing two sides of the coin - Law and Disorder.

 

Having not seen the series but going on what we've seen thus far in the trailers, I'd say just as Gordon spends the season learning the ropes from Bullock in the GCPD, Cobblepot is the spoiled little rich kid that dreams of being a gangster and gets "lessons" from Fish - who doesn't kill Cobblepot simply because it would bring a lot of unwanted heat down on their heads. Season finale has Cobblepot gets the leverage he needs to off Fish - possible via a toxin developed by Ivy. Nygma and Bullock learn about Cobblepot moving in on Fish and choose to let things "play out", possibly even with a pay off from Cobblepot with Selena finding out about it (Fish may be a mentor figure to her?) and bringing that information to Gordon, who ends the season learning that his mentor figure is no better then the crooks they routinely go after.

Pamela is about 10-14 right now. Don't think she's quite to the point of "pre-meditated murder by genetically engineered toxin" yet.

Nothing says it has to be per-meditated. Also, the trailers make her look older - like College age. Enough that she's already becoming an ecological advocate and start tinkering with plant genetics. Cobblepot offers her funding for her experiments (As no respectable institution would), but he gets dibs on anything created, no matter how "flawed".

 

Again, this is all suspicion and not actual fact. But I don't think they'd name drop Ivy in the Trailers if she didn't factor in some how into the seasonal narrative.

Well, she's one of the name villians...but I think the actress is like 13-14...age not listed on IMDB, but she played a 7 year old in 2012 movie, so I'm thinking she's in the same age as Bruce and Selina.

New trailer.

 

Hm. No Ivy - that's good. I was worried she'd be more then a one-off cameo. Really dug the music, and the set up was really good too. I maintain my excitement to see this series, even though it being on FOX means I'm only likely to get one season out of it.

http://www.comicbook...=zergnet_218677

 

I'd prefer they not even hint at the Joker this early in the history of the setting (And again, it makes all of Batman's enemies older then he is), but if they're going to do it...do it that way. I like that. Maintain the mystery - though if/when they do have the Joker emerge, cast someone entirely different. Keep his origin cloudy.

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'd hoped after the bidding war FOX had to get rights to the show, they'd at least pretend they care whether or not it succeeds.
