And here we go again...
I don't care what time slot the show gets, as long as all the episodes get shown. **hugs his DVR**
Cartoonnetwork could at least use some KY, I'm having trouble sitting down.
new packaging....same product....loosers.
well surprise surprise...
Why is it that for the last 3 series the last 13 episodes get the screwjob? Seriously Hasbro has to be seeing the pattern by now.
Which is worse? The way CN is shafting Transformers, the way it's shafting JLU, or the fact that it continues to air 12 Ounce Mouse?
I'm amazed that so many people care about this show's schedule. the torrents are always readily available. Hasbro posts the eps online. and Galaxy Force has been wrapped up for months. Coupled with the magical three decade old technology called a VCR, it's really not that hard to watch this show no matter when it's airs.
Some people are still on 56k. I used to be one of them. Also some people have tossed their VCRs in favor of DVD players.
You're right about the torrents (thank you Dark Prime & tv-nihon!) and the Hasbo online features.
But that's not the point. Cartoon Network is not even giving the show a chance. Transformers are toys purchased by children. Children must see the shows on TV in order to relate to the characters. Watching them through torrents or the internet is not the best way encourage a 12 year old to watch a cartoon.
My thoughts exactly.
They should make it 24/7 Adult Swim and be done with it already.
Not surprised at all.
right. kids don't want to have to search, find and WAIT on a huge download in order to watch a cartoon, they want to turn on the TV and bam! there it is. This piss-poor scheduling kills ratings which in turn hurts the TFs sales... which can mean among many things, clogged shelves, and us not getting new TFs without paying higher online prices and shipping CN must be pretty well endowed, cause they're giving EVERYONE the shaft!
but when kids turn on the TV, they wanna watch something good...which in this case, they turn the knob to something else....maybe that's the reason why CN does it, gives the first 13 the PILOT treatment, then the rest will find its way somewhere.
look at other shows on other stations that get the cut/moved after 5 episodes cause it aint doing as great as they thought due to its timeslot (wahtever its called) competition...
I really can't fathom why Hasbro keeps letting CN have their shows.
Random thought- ever wonder if those commercial breaks every 5 minutes on CN contribute to ADD? 6-8 breaks per half hour show, who needs to pay attention for very long? G1 had like what, 2 per episode? Maybe 3 if you count one before the closing credits.
Whoever is running CN now needs to be shot, court marshaled and sent to the Russian Front,(Been watching Hogan's Heroes DVDs) and then replaced with the guy that was running it about 4 years ago.
