Most of us remember the first generation of Transformers, having grown up with the toys and toons. Then came the Beast Wars era… Now, they’re returning to their cel-animated roots in “Robots In Disguise.” How does this compare to the other incarnations of the series? Read the review at IGN.
Every online news source I check is being pounded into submission. If you’ve managed not to hear the news, both towers have collapsed after being hit by hijacked aircraft. (They were 767’s, in the latest report I heard.) A helicopter has hit the Pentagon. Government buildings all over the U.S. are being evacuated. (There may be similar evacuations in Canada; that’s unconfirmed.) I’ve heard that a plane has crashed outside Pittsburgh. There are reports of other hijackings still happening.
The world’s about to become a very ugly place.
It seems Dave hadn’t realized there might be a need for a “terrorist attack” category (who would?), I’ll leave this as “Ask The Bureau” and request that anyone with additional information or comments post them below.
Slashdot seems to be holding up well. The comments there are loaded with various links, mirrors, and updates. We can’t keep up with them, so you might as well go there for updates.
Anonymous Coward writes, Three episodes of Doctor Who are coming out on DVD in the US Today! The episodes are the Spearhead From Space, the Five Doctors, and the Robots of Death. They all turn up on this Amazon page. Yes, that link will act as a referral from us. It’s good to see some good news this hour. If you live in New York, STOP USING WATER NOW. If you don’t know why, turn on the news.
This one caught me by complete surprise. Well I guess not complete since we’re bound to be drowned in all things Tolkienesqe with LOTR due out this December.
Fans of the Ralph Bakshi version shouldn’t feel put off. It’s coming out tomorrow as well.
If you already have these on video, save your money…there doesn’t appear to be any bonus materials on any of these discs.
Seems more and more people are sick of how Paramount’s handling the Star Trek franchise… We’ve mentioned Voyager Virtual Season Eight here before, and now another group of people are putting together Star Trek: Renaissance. They say they’re striving for scripts of higher quality than Paramount’s; the press kit (available now in our downloads section) looks promising, as does the first script.
Hey, at least it’s not this stunning concept…
In this USENET post, The Great Maker announced that the new Babylon 5 movie/series pilot/premiere/whatever-you-wanna-call-it will air on January 2, 2002.
Hey, it’s been a slow news week. (Or maybe we’re just working too much at our day jobs. Who knows?) Anyway, it’s just been announced that the world premiere of “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” will be on November 4 in Leicester Square, London. It premieres for the rest of us Muggles on November 16, in case you’ve forgotten.
earlier when Robotech started coming to DVD. The
third DVD set of seven was just announced
over at the official site. Due to the nature of
Robotech, I’ve decided to review them in three
columns. The first will cover the first three box
sets, and the next two columns will cover the last
four (at two columns each.)
