|Zen Thing Wrote:well i generally havta watch each episode a few times just to soak up the artistic awesomeness. but this was one of the first episodes that i needed to go back and sync up plot details. if it wasnt obvious before- this is not a kids show. and everything from the
"Tron will return after these messages" abrasive transition to the commercials-
Has you reaching for the remote to mute the load transition so you arent blasted by the glowing pillows or tortilla toaster.
I just am at a loss why Disney made these decisions, which may ultimately bring this series to a close. i hope they option it to ABC for a first season rerun or to ADULT SWIM.
now on to the episode itself-
i have a few questions...
1. was this the first apperence or mention- of grid worms, in all of TRON mythology?
2. was Gorns helper that the TRON equivalent of Frankenstein- i didnt grasp what he was. it was the first time if seen a ogre-ish program.
other than that. this series is only gaining momentum and i tell my friends to watch it but few people have the disney alt channels. its a debacle.
I think the only way to save and continue the show is option it for Adult Swim or do it as an internet exclusive. I'm a bit stunned to see how near-sighted they are when it comes to thinking ahead. In fact, why the heck did'nt they just bring the toys or merchandising for Uprising to increase awareness of the show? If they had done that, the toys would be rare collectibles.
And if they cancel it, it must go on as a virtual season or novelization series. Even in graphic novel format but it has to be done right, and with the right staff who knows their stuff.
Grid worms? First time I've ever seen them as they were never mentioned in the first film or Legacy. It's almost as if they went 'retroactive' on the story.
As for Gorn's helper, Lomox, I've a feeling he was a normal program back then but Pavel probaby did something to cause his 'rictus' smile.
