In my Marvel comic canon the second wave of special teams were handpicked active robots whose experience would theoretically make more stable combiners, the Combaticons came from Cybertron, the Protectobots were imprinted from crystals explaining both Onslauhghts ancestry and First Aid's experience.

How long until IDW puts out an Optimus Pride Month comic?

@  Cyoti : (18 June 2021 - 03:32 PM)

Even with B5, it didn't follow its original 5-year plan. Summaries from the supplementary materials for the scriptbooks demonstrates that was originally planned was very different from the actual product. Sinclair's actor's departure seemingly changed the show to the point that the stuff with the Vorlons/Shadows, the Minbari and the ending were all changed. Mapping out a show years in advance is difficult because of changing bts stuff like writers/actors leaving the show or suddenly having to retool because of ratings/execs. No plan survives intact especially in a chaotic environment of television production.

@  Rycochet : (18 June 2021 - 11:27 AM)

To be like Babylon 5, you need to cram a 2 season story arc into one because you fear being cancelled, then get further seasons you have no more material for. You also need a spinoff which the network heads don't want and do everything in their power to kill it while it's on air.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 June 2021 - 10:33 AM)

The required effort is probably why we don't have babylon 6; TNG.

@  Dekafox : (18 June 2021 - 10:23 AM)

Everyone wants to be like Babylon 5 but no one wants to put in the effort

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 09:36 AM)

And then, after five years of hosting their own official podcast where they would answer fan questions and always encouraged their audience to pay attention to the mysteries, after the show had ended, they claimed the show was never really about the mysteries, it was all about the characters.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 09:34 AM)

What really bugs me with "Lost" is that the producers had willfully negotiated a set end date with the network halfway through season 3 (the show ended with season 6, as planned) specifically so they could plan out the plot for the remainder of the show. Then... the plot wasn't resolved properly.

@  tigerhawk : (18 June 2021 - 04:17 AM)

By then I had lost interest in arc TV shows, I followed a few and got the impression they were just making them up as they went along. Seemed to be a trend starting with new Galactica and Lost though in actuality began with The X Files and has become a trope called 'The Chris Carter Effect'.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:12 AM)

I think it was season 3 part 1 specifically, since they had two separate plot "arcs" for season 3.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:11 AM)

They threw everything in there, with no clear story structure, no clear stakes, and characters flip-flopping wherever the episode's writer needed them to go for their half-baked plot.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:10 AM)

Season 3 was the worst, with a terrible meandering random events plot.

@  tigerhawk : (17 June 2021 - 11:59 PM)

'save the cheerleader' then in season 3 he tears her skull open, scans her power and she simply heals. They didn't think any of it through.

@  Shockwave 75 : (17 June 2021 - 07:04 PM)

Well, you know Hollywood; if something's popular, run it into the ground!

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

And then there was the Writers' Strike, which isn't the show's fault.

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

Yeah, Sylar should've been, if not killed off, at least left to rest.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

It never truly recovered from that.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

Season 1 was good until the finale.

Jaleel Whie or Death!

 

 

Ok not really but it's been a decade so it's about that time it seems. It's like every decade they switch up the voice.

Also Sega seems to want Sonic's voice to be consitant across all mediums, as the game's cast usually end up doing the cartoons as well. So, its not surprising to me if they Switched from Roger to Ben That way those that might have gotten into Sonic with the movie (I know a few) if they play a new game its the "same" Sonic.

Every Sonic voice actor gets better at it when given the chance. I expect Ben to grow into the role just fine.

That is sad. It's always rough to see someone who's carried a role for years move on, especially if wasn't their decision.

 

I loved Ben Schwartz in the movie, and given the other voicework he does I don't think he'd feel that a sub-cinematic Sonic was beneath him (like, I don't think we'll see Jim Carrey in a game or cartoon). So it's easy to imagine that he'd say yes to expanding his relationship with the character.

 

If we have to see a recast I think Schwartz is an excellent outcome, but it's still hard to support if it turns out that Roger Craig Smith got the boot because they wanted more star power.

I'm wondering if they just decided to wait out his contract and that's why we've not heard any Sonic game news.

Do we think it's just Sonic getting recast or the whole cast again? Cuz if they're keeping Mike Pollock as Eggman (which they should), Smith's successor will be the third Sonic that Pollock has played Eggman in a opposite role against (the first was Jason Griffith).

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 actually wouldn't mind losing Pollock. I have never had the sheer love for him the Gamecube ports/Sonic X generation have. Perfectly cast as Boom Eggman but never clicked beyond that. Bristow always nailed to me what I expected.

As stated earlier, I don't think theyd be able to Switch to Carry, so Either they need a soundalike, someone totally new, or stick with Pollock who's basically the iconic voice of the character at this point. I think part of the reason they keep changing the others is to attempt them sounding young. Eggman doesnt really have that issue.

Seems Sega has at least reached out to Ryan Drummond to see if he's interested in returning: https://www.sonicsta...sonic-role/amp/

 

Also seems that Tails and Amy's current VA's have also left.

If Drummond still wants the role back after this much time I'd give it to him. Make him audition and all, but you know he's not going to phone it in.

He always ends up being the real star, whether it's a comic or a show or a movie.

 

Pollock's Eggman knows he's the real star, and that is why he works so well. Pollock's Eggman knows he's the protagonist, and obviously the crowd favorite. Everything he does, every gesture, is a grand show for his imagined audience that he knows is eating up every bit of it. He hams it up extra hard so folks in the back row get to appreciate his performance too. When he finally conquers the world he doesn't just want to hear surrenders. He wants to hear you applaud him for making a good show of it.

 

It hurts him that Sonic can't admit he's impressed.

I hate reporting like this. The headline says one thing, the facts say another. Sounds like he heard Roger was gone and put the feelers out to Sega, not the reverse.

I'll be amazed if we ever see the Dreamcast actors. They're very of a time that has passed. Only way I see it happening is if someone pushed internally. Like how when Vegeta got cloned in Dragon Ball Super, Chris Sabat (voice director and Vegeta's current VA) pushed to get Vegeta's original Canadian VA in to play the brief role as a treat for fans.

So I picked up the Jakks Pacific Green Hill playset and I'm very mixed on a gimmick it has.

There are pegs across the playset to mount 3 included rings and you can get further accessories by buying more figures...except there's a scale issue. The playset is designed for a smaller line of figures. To get new accessories (largely stage hazards) you have to buy the larger figures which aren't scaled to the playset.

What a con.
