    I just saw without a trace with my family. I am so pissed off. You know why? A little boy is abducted and a pedophile had helped him get his ball. So far no big deal right? Wrong, they had to throw in that he had a Transformers collection. He then replies that it is his hobby. They then reply that it is not a hobby, rock climbing is a hobby. Why the hell did they have to specify the product? That is so not cool. If any writer on Without A Trace is reading this: FUCK YOU!

    So they made it sound like any adult that collects toys is really a pedophile using them as bait?

    That's just stupid.

    I'm going to go ahead and chime in here right at the very beginning of this and remind everybody to stay in line. This has the potential to get ugly so please think before you post. Thanks.

    Okay, I saw that and honestly didn't phase me 1 bit. It's honestly not really worth getting angry about. And besides, isn't it possible that you're taking it a BIT too seriously since you have a vested interest being a toy collector and all?

    And I know you know that the likely hood of any of the show writers reading this thread is minute at best.

    Well it is just a TV show and let's say for the sake of discussion it was presented wrong. It's not too far fetched that pedophiles use the attraction of toys and such to get the attention of trusting youth. And I SERIOUSLY doubt that they were saying ALL toy collectors are pedophiles. That's just how it's interpretted because of vested interest.

    I just saw it myself and I don't really watch it. My moms visiting from NJ and she loves that show and I just happen to be online and caught glimpses of it. So collecting Transformers makes us bad huh? If so, I don't wanna be good!

    Just chill, dude. You're dealing in absolutes. I'm agreeing with Shaun_C.
    Let's not get carried away. If the pedophile drove a Ford, would every Ford driver be a pedophile?

    I rest my case.

    I don't watch Without a Trace and have not seen this specific episode, but if they said Transformers by name, Hasbro should sue. Furthermore, anyone that thinks that collecting Transformers is not a hobby is full of poop in the head. Just about anything that you do for fun on a regular basis can be construed as a hobby. Collecting, reading, riding, heck even masturbating. And finally, Rock climbing can be a hobby, but it can also be a profession, if it is your primary source of income as a national or international athlete. A big F.U. to Without a Trace from me.

    My wife saw it, and her coworker called to see what I thought about it after the fact. I didn't hear it first hand but apparently yes, it was less than flattering to our hobby. Oh well, screw em. Yeah, they could easily had just said toy collection or something to that effect. Why they named Transformers is beyond me unless one of the writers is a Gobots fan. hehe

    Without a Trace is still on?

    If someone is stupid enough to generalize what they see on a TV show as being 100% true to life, well then they have other problems that need to be addressed. Not really worth blowing a blood vessel over.

    the shows themselves satisfy a taboo need to see death and violence and deviation from social normality under the guise of "here come the good guys to save the day!"

    so id say dont worry about it, but still sucks that it was transformers...cuz out of all toys to collect, they are by far the most kick ass and justfied in collecting as an adult

    Must have shown a different ep here. I decided to check it out (it was starting here just as the thread started, think it was about 5 minutes in...but it was about the kidnapping of a mixed race kid for drug money.)

    You're only a paedophile if your grooming kids on pictochat on your DS lite, in toy aisles writing with your erect penis.

    If not, then well, everyone else can go screw themselves. ;)
