whos gona tune in friday and wach the new show on cn? next friday, not this one.
Then why'd you start a thread on it?
My initial impressions are that it reminds me of Ben 10 with machines, and it kinda looks like a show made to sell toys, but I'm tuning in because I'm an animation fan and I'll give anything a shot.
becouse pre premiere disscusions are fun. and they actualy dont have a toyline planed.
Just wait. If the show's a hit, it will come in time. I don't think they planned Ben 10 toys originally either.
It just looks very "toyetic", to borrow a word from "Freakazoid."
[comment removed -- no longer necessary. Sorry for the misunderstanding.]
I took that to mean that it starts next Friday as opposed to tomorrow.
i actuly have every intention to see the entire shows run.
if you go on i tunes they have a music video with the xtended theme song, pretty good one too.
he meant t say next friday not this friday people. which means he has every intention to watch the show like me.
My apologies. I misread what you said in your original post about "not this one" -- I thought you were referring to yourself. I see how you meant the premiere date.
i know its hard to understand what i type somtimes. sorry.
I look at The Dircetv listing, and find that show is debut at the same time as Ben 10:Ulimate Alien.
and boba fett returning to sar wars for the seasn finaly!
Did anyone else catch the series premiere of this show last night? There were a few cringeworthy moments but overall it's pretty good. I also noticed Man of Action's involved, which for me is a good sign.
Already a current thread on this topic:
Total agreement with that review. It was just too formulaic and derivative for my adult tastes, but the show wasn't made for me either. And I have a feeling I was right about my earlier comment that the show is going to be pushing toys eventually. Rex changes himself into the same vehicle like 3-4 times.
I might tune in periodically to see how the series and character progresses, but nothing about the premiere really grabbed me and made me want to keep watching.
I also want a little more, but I'll give it say...3 eps before ditching it. Van Kleiss and his crew were actually the most interesting aspect of the entire show to me. He's pretty much Magneto by way of Swamp Thing, and if they explore the idea of the mutants (Evos? Same diff, guys) on his side actually reveling in and accepting what they have become, that will lend some depth to the villains, which a lot of shows in this bracket often need.
In fact, everyone but the titular character was at least somewhat interesting. The Agent Six/Dr. Holiday dynamic may become a welcome breath of maturity if the writers choose to explore it. They are, essentially, Rex's de facto parents. There's a lot to be mined there, but again, it depends on if the writers and network want to go there.
This bit touched on in the review also very much disappointed me:
I mean I saw that, and the fact that the show nonchalantly uses the word "kill" and thought that we were going to explore a little more of the consequences of this whole "nanite event" thing. But they blew it off. I guess guys in masks, even good guys, aren't people or something?
My issue is that the review is dead on. The titular character is an irritating jerkbox. Hopefully they rein that in and quickly.
I saw it today and its kinda cool, but it needs to take time to get use to this kid. Even though he does sound like a cocky jerkbox. Even though its far fetched, but he'll be kinda weird/cool to see a Generator Rex/Ben 10 crossover, but its only a thought. But you'll never know.
Oh yes, I also liked some of the music. Van Kleiss' leitmotif was quite nice, string-heavy and a nice use of french horns.
Then they had to barge in with sloppily generic electric guitar, woo.
