Chat Transcript:

6:58 PMLee Showron​Hey

6:59 PMLee Showron​And his Name isn’t Baby Yoda

6:59 PMLee Showron​lol it’s ok

7:00 PMaddictedtochaos​Hello

7:00 PMSheekago​Hey Andrew and all

7:01 PMCafeFox​Hey

7:03 PMLyricallyC​Hello everyone

7:06 PMLyricallyC​Trailer now? Wait? WHAT??

7:06 PMCafeFox​I don’t know if you saw the post that me and another guy made, but the reason they do this is to bait people flipping through social media to want to watch the whole trailer.

7:07 PMCafeFox​Advertising to people with a short attention span

7:08 PMCafeFox​It’s for simplicity, they don’t care if it annoys some people

7:10 PMCafeFox​Some people just flip through their timeline and videos automatically play, so that short video will play really quickly for them

7:11 PMCafeFox​yeah its not for you lol

7:12 PMLyricallyC​I wonder about trailers that have a different movie title when the official movie releases.

7:14 PMLyricallyC​live.die.repeat was one

7:15 PMCafeFox​Is it another hot questionnaire for free content?

7:16 PMSheekago​Edge of Tomorrow

7:17 PMCafeFox​I’m all set, movie does not look too good to be honest

7:17 PMCafeFox​I mean again, they show everything that’s gonna happen in the movie in the trailer

7:18 PMSheekago​WTF? They CANCELLED Willow? Damn it

7:19 PMLyricallyC​Did they leave it on a cliff hanger? I really dislike when that happens because you never know if the show will be cancelled or not.

7:21 PMCafeFox​I really liked the black hole sun acoustic rendition

7:26 PMLyricallyC​Have you ever put a movie on for background noise while cleaning or doing something?

7:26 PMCafeFox​Is Teen Titans go still on the air? it’s been like a decade

7:26 PMaddictedtochaos​You described everything I hate about TT Go

7:27 PMCafeFox​Its internet lol humor

7:27 PMaddictedtochaos​The Teen Titans series (pre Go) was much better.

7:27 PMaddictedtochaos​Raven

7:27 PMCafeFox​@chaos the OG is great

7:28 PMSheekago​I’m doing that now. I’m listening to your podcast while playing Diablo

7:28 PMLyricallyC​Gotcha

7:29 PMaddictedtochaos​That is why I don’t stream, I lack the engaging personality.

7:30 PMLyricallyC​Normally, the DC animated movies are really good.

7:30 PMSheekago​Pennyworth? I haven’t seen it

7:32 PMaddictedtochaos​Back to the Future was Universal

7:34 PMLee Showron​Batman Beyond is canon now, but from the Future

7:35 PMaddictedtochaos​If I’m not mistaken “Pennyworth” was cancelled recently.

7:36 PMLyricallyC​3 songs and that’s it? That”s like the first half of Scooby-Doo Where are you episodes from the first season

7:37 PMLee Showron​New stuff makes them look like little kids though

7:39 PMSheekago​They found out Pennyworth wasn’t worth a penny?

7:40 PMLee Showron​DC

7:40 PMCafeFox​@sheek “ba dom tis!”

7:40 PMLee Showron​Yeah

7:42 PMaddictedtochaos​Been enjoying “Picard” season 3 so far. Haven’t seen any of Mandolorian since I don’t have Disney+.

7:43 PMSheekago​Mandalorian Season 2.5 was good.

7:43 PMSheekago​aka the two episodes of Bobba Fett that were mostly Mando

7:45 PMCafeFox​These shows have a weird pacing issue with the story

7:45 PMLyricallyC​?? What kind of nonsense is that with those shows?

7:48 PMLee Showron​Have you heard that Disney is making a hologram of Walt Disney so people will believe he really existed. I’m not sure how that would help because it’s still not real

7:51 PMLee Showron​The Yoda species can live a pretty long lives so he got lots of time

7:52 PMLee Showron​I wish Star Wars would finally give a name to the Yoda species though so we finally know

7:53 PMCafeFox​Yeah that was a whole sub story for nothing lol

8:02 PMSheekago​Maybe he regressed and mentally stayed an infant from trauma. He did survive Vader killing all the Jedi in the temple.

8:04 PMLee Showron​For long time I thought Yoda was the last of his species, but with this new one coming out I’m guessing there’s more

8:05 PMJared Knisely​i would argue that pacing is part of good storytelling

8:05 PMSheekago​”I am Grogu”

8:05 PMJared Knisely​just a thought about cafe’s comment

8:07 PMLee Showron​Do you think Lucas is still have something to do with Star Wars? Or not since Disney now owns it

8:07 PMJared Knisely​so in episodic media i think that pacing is one top priorities

8:08 PMJared Knisely​so bad pacing is bad writing

8:08 PMLee Showron​Your in your 40s and baby you is with it. Wow that’s old

8:09 PMCafeFox​There is just some adding, subtracting and jumping around with the stories that I’ve noticed.

8:09 PMaddictedtochaos​He should talk weird like Yoda

8:09 PMCafeFox​off-putting, but not bad persay

8:11 PMaddictedtochaos​1980, before even I was born.

8:12 PMLee Showron​A year before I was born lol @Addictedtochaos

8:13 PMJared Knisely​havent watch since i want to wait till it’s finished , said potential pacing issue that can happen

8:15 PMCafeFox​yeah, what did she gain by taking advantage of him?

8:17 PMCafeFox​Also, he kind of reminded me of the guy who played daredevil… must just be the glasses and the beard lol

8:17 PMSheekago​What if she had planned this from the beginning. Get the gear she knows he needs, get his mind flayed, then befriend empty minded doctor. Show him his work and have him continue it.

8:19 PMJared Knisely​i think the message that they are trying to convey is that any group as a potential to do evil

8:20 PMJared Knisely​i dont care

8:20 PMJared Knisely​i will problably forget

8:24 PMCafeFox​I’m thinking they just took the device from the Empire without updating the knob limitations

8:31 PMJared Knisely​side game(not relate to main series)

8:31 PMJared Knisely​its a live action game

8:33 PMJared Knisely​different game formula

8:33 PMJared Knisely​closer to ys than trials

8:34 PMLee Showron​Ok bye
