@  SG Roadbuster : (08 August 2020 - 01:53 PM)

@Nevermore yes.

@  Nevermore : (08 August 2020 - 09:11 AM)

Is $30 a good deal for Subscription Service Breakdown?

@  Trpodeca : (08 August 2020 - 06:24 AM)

Oh dear God no. Twitter has changed it's default layout to the terrible new one. Why waste so much space on the left?

@  Steevy Maximus : (07 August 2020 - 08:28 PM)

@Bass X0, yeah, the Joe comic got REALLY solid in the upper 20s to the Cobra Civil War. It's interesting to see how well the Joe comic has aged relative to the cartoon. Where as I feel the opposite is true of Transformers

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 August 2020 - 03:58 PM)

Its so fun watching past TF Conventions.

@  Bass X0 : (07 August 2020 - 02:20 PM)

I've been reading classic 80s G.I. Joe lately. Its still decent even though I don't have any nostalgia towards it.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Think of it as Adam West Batman instead. ;)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 August 2020 - 07:49 AM)

That sounds more like the flash, or maybe booster gold than batman.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 12:27 AM)

They would get bored fighting each other and instead decide to take an epic cross-country road trip together.

@  RichardT1977 : (06 August 2020 - 08:57 PM)

What would happen if Batman were to fight Squirrel Girl?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 09:03 PM)

Unless you count the Mask vs Lobo special, but that's less a duel and more a duet.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 08:52 PM)

My favorite crossover fight was Thor vs Shazam/Captain Marvel. Early in the fight, Thor discovers that Billy Batson needs lightning to transform, and being a god of lightning he simply denies him that.

@  Sabrblade : (04 August 2020 - 08:46 PM)

Let's see a fight between Death Battle and Super Power Beat Down

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

Which Lobo later claimed was because he was paid to take a dive. Yes, really.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

And then there's the times it's been decided by a fan vote, which is how we get things like Lobo (who can go toe-to-toe with Superman at full strength) losing to Wolverine.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

And then there are the "but my favorite characater will totes win because I say so" people.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I mean, there are some people who really approach this from a somewhat reasonable standpoint, coming up with a plausible scenario and a setting that creates a fair environment that doesn't favor one character.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:46 PM)

My favorite stupid "why would they even fight each other" question recently was about three versions of Optimus Prime (G1, Bayverse and Aligned).

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:45 PM)

Batman obviously can beat everyone. Even Galactus. He's Batman. He's so smart, he'll just throw a Batarang and hit the weak spot at Galactus's forehead, knocking him out instantaneously.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 August 2020 - 11:37 AM)

It's almost like all drama is just manufactured pissing contests to keep us all entertained and distracted. :p

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 August 2020 - 10:16 AM)

Or they could go White Ranger vs Scorpion route and have both win. ;P

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Besides, we all know the answer is nearly always "they fight to a standstill and then team up against a common enemy."

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:29 AM)

The best way to prove this is to give an example where the match is really lopsided in favor of one character but in popularity they're either evenly matched or the weaker one is more popular.

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:27 AM)

The "who would win in a fight" discussions are really just people trying to make "which one's better" into something you can theoretically measure objectively, usually in a very specific way they think they've predetermined their favorite will win.

@  Otaku : (04 August 2020 - 02:01 AM)

@Nevermore So... you're saying you didn't like DC Versus Marvel/Marvel Versus DC?

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 August 2020 - 06:59 PM)

So, what happened to Hasbro's Zoids relaunch? An English dub, some stuff in southeast Asia, and now a game coming in October? That it?

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Tidal wave, cause shooting water gets you nowhere.

@  Darth Gonzo : (03 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Who would win Tidal Wave or Broadside?

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:17 AM)

Btw Happy birthday to those people in the box to the right \o/

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:16 AM)

The bottom line is obvious. It makes no literal sense to fight someone on your faction. :/

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 06:14 AM)

That's because you're doing it wrong. You're supposed to just stack skills and ability against each other. It's not the palace of doom, it's an episode of american gladiators.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:32 AM)

The only obvious winners of such a fight would be the bad guys.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

And what does it even matter? They should work together, not stupidly fight each other for the mindless entertainment of idiot onlookers.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

Why would two good guys fight each other? What are they fighting over?

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:28 AM)

I never understood these "who would win in a fight between two good guys" discussions. They make no sense to me.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 04:17 PM)

If G1 had continued we'd have had Starscream back in spirit - through Krunk, Snapdragons partner and possibly Skullcruncher unless he was mute.

@  Bass X0 : (02 August 2020 - 12:28 PM)

There are some decent impersonators in fandubs though.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 August 2020 - 10:45 AM)

The only true Starscream voices are Steve Blum and Chris Latta, hands down.

@  Sabrblade : (02 August 2020 - 10:14 AM)

Why they didn't have Scott McNeil voicing that Starscream, when he was the one who had imitated Chris Latta when he voiced Cobra Commander in the DiC G.I. Joe cartoon, is beyond me.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Say what you will, that was an awesome scene.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 08:36 AM)

Beast Wars Starsream "I am AIR COMMANDER Starscream of the DECEPTICON BATTLEFLEET!"

@  Nevermore : (02 August 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I liked TF: Prime Starscream.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 August 2020 - 08:36 PM)

Hearing Starscream's screechy voice in Cyberverse has to be the most annoying thing ever in Transformers. Even his G1 voice wasn't as bad. :doh

I really can't overstate how much this show grows on me with every episode. The pilot was just okay, the Inception parody was pretty good, the one with Anatomy Park even better, and the one with the con-artist aliens topped them all.

 

And then with the latest episode, I can see the Meeseeks anooying a lot of people, but I simply could not stop laughing. And it even had a bit of heart, or whatever you call it when your sociopath main character throws a bet to please his grandson who almost got raped in the toilet by an evil jellybean.

OK, this latest episode made me a bit queesy. Really, that poor kid is gonna end up a nervous wreck if he ever gets to grow up. And the "croenenberg" monsters... yikes!

 

Though this confirms that the opening of the show contains animation from the actual episodes, so I am staying until I get to see the Chtulhu episode, at least.

Oh, wow. I never expected the show to reference that Rick and Morty came from another dimension, much less that the experience left Morty with a more-or-less healthy worldview.

This week's episode was kind of weird.  It seemed like they put people in the recording booth doing bad improv of bizarre TV shows and commercials and then animated the bad improv.

 

The character parts were great, though.

Yeah, it's a weird comparison, but it kind of reminded me of one of those Star Trek episodes where they ran out of budget and had to spend the entire episode on the ship.

I liked that it ended up being more about the characters than the wacky hijinks, and ended on a fairly positive note.

Well if you didn't like the improv episode, I think this week's episode made up for it in spades.

 

A really meaty episode for character development. And that Chick Tracts joke? Genius.


Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

You mean the "Needful Things" parody? I found the basic idea funny - how basically Rick makes the items un-cursed. But it went from a totally different direction from there than I expected.

So, anyone watching season 2?

 

Seriously, this show is like a trainwreck where you can't look away... though by now it has become a bit predictable. If something horrible can happen, it WILL happen. And I don't mean trainwreck because it's bad - it's a very well written and smart show. Just that Rick has to be the most horrible human being ever. He's not even aware of how evil and heartless he is, because he rationalizes it all away. The latest episode where he is revealed to have created a whole tiny universe with people whose job it is to basically power his car battery.... Yikes.

I love the show.  It takes turns that are darker than you would ever expect, yet somehow makes them funny.  The writing is genius, and in a way, is a fantastic way to point out some of the horrible but logical consequences of sci-fi tech that are normally just glossed over.

With this season, I am forced to conclude Morty might be the most emotionally durable human being in existence.

 

Seriously, kid can walk off things that would leave pretty much anyone else in therapy for months.

But he gave them life. If he went in there and asked them how many would rather die than do power his car, who would choose death?

I like that Ricky, rarely, if ever has to learn a lesson, and if anything its Morty, or the family that learn the moral for trying to do the right thing.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

I watched season 1 but I'm pretty sure it was addressed why Rick brings Morty around instead of the sister but I can't remember the reason why. Was it stated outright? Was it in the Needful Things episode, hence the sister latched on to the evil guy as a mentor substitute?

Morty's stupidness cancels out Rick's genuineness , which is a measurable and trackable brainwave patten. He keeps Morty around as a sheild to not be tracked and arrested/killed.

That track-able Rick was brought up in the multiple versions of Rick and Morty ep (with the council of Ricks and the evil versions), right? But I meant why the sister wasn't the one being dragged around on adventures by Rick. She's older so did Rick bring her along until Morty was born?
