    The show runners were stupid people who barely watched the original Beast Wars TV show.

    Writers today put their own ego and self-centred vision first before writing a show that would be enjoyed by existing fans. And that practically goes for any franchise with an existing fanbase.

    Quite simple my dear Smasher: the people writing these shows are simply not very good at their job.

    One might even go as far to say they are untalented hacks that succeeded through an industry easier than ever to stumble your way through as long as you know the right people rather than having any actual talent to their names.

    Who are you talking about? Isaac? Because game Isaac was generic anime trash.

    Probably
    Death.

    Which deserves the same response.

    If he meant him, then I'd argue Netflix properly had him as a big f'n deal and one of the big bosses exactly like he's depicted in the games.

    The writing was as cheap as the show’s budget.

    Pretty much. They even created a logical connection between Dracula and him which explains why they were allies in the games.

    Castlevania was a huge disappointment for me. It had decent production values and good voice actors and all that, but it just wasn’t very good.

    So what that interview by Rodimus Primal showed is that Cyberverse is now supreme.

    Wasn't expecting that.

    So I want to talk about the GIGANTIC SCULPTURES that just sorta show up at the end.
    20210807_020614.jpg

    Who made them, and when? Everyone in the scene still seems battle damaged, so how much time has passed? And they scrambled to make a sculpture, instead of repairing themselves? It seems to be made of ice, with all the twinkling happening in the air of a radiant-daytime-from-no-sun sky, and the snowy buildup at the base.

    Or was it made by the Cybertronians who remained after both ships left? "Well, we're all gonna die anyways, might as well stop fighting and make some really tall statues."

    And why Refractor and Cog? Were they the character models the animators used most often to fill background, so when pressed to choose two characters for the statues, they chose ol' faithful? Fitting tribute indeed.

    Your points about how, why, and when are ones I agree with. As far as why those characters, I took it as because they were the most reused ones they were intended as the representations of the common soldier rather than the legendary war hero, and the monuments were a tribute to the normal people who got swept up in grand causes propogated by massive personalities and lost their lives for it. It's also much less egotistical than erecting a monument to oneself (fitting for Prime, though runs counter to Megatron's usual desires).

    Centaurworld is amazing as well, really funny, great animation, and Broadway quality songs.

    Also recommend the new Witcher animated movie, better than Castlevania imo

    Do you have to have watched the Witcher series or is it standalone?

    It’s a prequel to the Netflix show.

    Is it standalone enough to watch by itself?

    Yes since it focuses on a separate character named Vesemir.
