Transformers, The - TV Shows
There was a certain arrogance and stupidity in 1980s corporate America like New Coke and renaming Jack in the Box to Monterey Jack's that blew up in the suits' faces. And then there was Hasbro and Transformers The Movie and how Optimus Prime was sacrificed at the altar of corporate greed. You see, by this point many Transformer toys had been on the shelf for two years and Hasbro thought it was time to discontinue these products and plug the newer toys. So some moron decides, "Hey, since we aren't selling these toys anymore, let's just callously kill off all those characters in The Movie and have the new toys, I mean characters take their place." They actually thought kids were stupid sheep that would blindly accept this scenario. Of course, the opposite happened. Kids were traumatized by seeing their favorite characters that they had been following for over two years die like that and nobody was buying the newer (and inferior, by the way) toys. So Hasbro panics and about six months later Optimus Prime was resurrected. But it was too late; the Transformers boom was over. They should have just left well enough alone instead of trying to "shake things up". -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 26, 2013, 11:07 pm

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2003) - TV Shows
This show was actually better than the original cartoon and skewed a lot closer to the awesome comic book that started it all. I guess they ran out of ideas (and comics to adapt) because some moron had the idea to send the Turtles into the future and thus Fast Forward was born. I only watched an episode or two and I was done with this show. I did come back for Turtles Forever, which was a lot of fun despite the 1987 Turtles being recast. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 26, 2013, 10:48 pm

Happy Days - TV Shows
I've been watching these on TV recently and have to agree with that the show really started to suck at season 3. The switch to the live studio audience was certainly annoying, and many of the 3rd-string characters just vanished without explanation, like Chuck and the waitresses at Arnold's. The shift of focus to The Fonz began here. Almost every episode was about Fonzie having to do something out of his comfort zone, but succeeding and proclaiming new experience "cool". The Fonz got watered down and preachy. "Wearing glasses is cool!" etc. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 24, 2013, 6:52 pm

Elton John - Music Groups
I like how he breaks stupid boycotts and will perform anywhere, even in politically incorrect locations like Arizona and Israel. He says it's not about a state's politics, it's about the fans. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 24, 2013, 6:27 pm

Bill Maher - Celebrities
Bill Maher finally said something that I agree with. He said that Islamic extremists are more dangerous than Christian fundies in a debate with some left-wing loon. There may be some hope for this guy after all. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 24, 2013, 6:12 pm

Disney - Random Topics
Word is that they've axed their entire 2D department because Princess and the Frog underperformed. Obviously other countries like Japan can still turn out 2D animated movies that turn a profit. It's the worn-out formula of princesses, song & dance numbers, and "hip" sidekicks with celebrity voices that needs axing, not hand-drawn animation. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 18, 2013, 11:01 pm

Rob Liefeld - Celebrities
Anyone remember his Levis 501 Blues commercial? http://youtu.be/LJhoa2SVGNA -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 18, 2013, 9:59 pm

Justin Bieber - Celebrities
Yeah, it's amazing how self-centered he is. BTW, Conan O'Brien did a hilarious spoof of the Belieber gaffe: http://youtu.be/6C-y-ANEhsE -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 18, 2013, 1:16 pm

At the Movies - TV Shows
RIP Siskel & Ebert. Sometimes you guys really made me mad when I was a kid and you trashed movies I liked, but I learned I lot from you guys and I started to agree with you a lot more when I got older. You two were always entertaining and none of your imitators came close to your greatness. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 14, 2013, 5:32 pm

Friends - TV Shows
It usually wasn't political. It usually wasn't funny either. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 13, 2013, 9:39 am

That Guy with the Glasses - Websites
So yeah, Nostalgia Critic didn't stay dead for long. Doug was a fool for tossing away his meal ticket like that, but at least he was wise enough to see the error of his ways before it was too late. Demo Reel will go down in the Book of Bad Ideas along with New Coke and Jar Jar Binks. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 4, 2013, 12:03 am

Tonight Show, The - TV Shows
I'm really pissed off at the news that Jay Leno will be replaced with Jimmy Fallon. Not because they're firing Leno (I'm happy about that part) but because Jimmy didn't pay his dues like Conan did. This just brings back memories of all that nastiness three years ago with firing Conan and bringing back Jay, and proves it was all for nothing. I'm hearing talking heads saying, "Well, the market has changed so much since then." REALLY!? Oh yeah, things are just SOOO much different in a mere three years. I'm so happy NBC is in 5th place and will laugh when that network finally dies. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 3, 2013, 6:35 pm

Whoever decided Peter Parker should be a skateboarder ("It'll make him hip!!") should be shot. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on March 26, 2013, 8:01 pm

M*A*S*H - TV Shows
If North Korea nukes us like they're threatening to, that would invalidate all of Hawkeye's "this stupid pointless war" tirades and we'd be living in a world where Frank Burns was right. A terrifying thought. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on March 15, 2013, 10:36 pm

Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008 TV series) - TV Shows
More evidence pointing to Disney knowing what they're doing-- they're cancelling this show! Seth Green's planned Star Wars show is also getting the axe. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on March 12, 2013, 7:04 pm

Mickey Mouse cartoons - Movie Series
Disney is producing 19 new Mickey shorts to air on the Disney Channel. From what I've seen the have an odd retro early '60s look to them. But Mickey & Minnie now look very similar to their 1920's incarnations, which I like. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on March 12, 2013, 7:01 pm

Bill O'Reilly - Celebrities
Never was a fan. Always found him a weak debater that likes to interrupt or shout down his guests. He often has Dennis Miller appear on his show and he's always ten times more interesting than Bill. I don't know why they don't give Miller his own show. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on March 8, 2013, 10:07 am

Superman - Random Topics
Ugh. There's a really ugly storm brewing at DC Comics. Mormon writer Orson Scott Card may get canned from writing Superman because he falls in line with the church's opposition to gay marriage. Liberals are calling for his head. This country is really getting scary when you have to keep your political alignment a secret in order to stay employed. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on March 7, 2013, 9:48 pm

William Shatner - Celebrities
I like Shatner. He probably did take himself too seriously in the '60s and thus annoyed his castmates, but he's obviously changed. I didn't care for those David E. Kelley shows he did either, but he won more awards for those shows than anything else he's ever done. As long as he's in good health, I hope to see him on TV for many more years. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on February 23, 2013, 3:11 pm

Batman Beyond - TV Shows
I don't really know what the point of this was, either. I remember at the time the fans wanted a Justice League cartoon (which they eventually got) and were upset that they went this direction. Whenever these shows try the timeskip to the future gimmick, it never seems to work. (Transformers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, etc.) It's fun for an episode or two and then the novelty wears off fast. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on February 21, 2013, 5:54 pm
