  1. A Message For Everyone:

    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels bashing/gushing will be subject to Mod action. Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.

    Three Special Effects Teams:

    ILM, Jim Henson's Creature Shop, and K.N.B. EFX Group

    Of course well all want ILM to win, so what are they doing? Well, they work frantically to beat the clock while constructing the ultimate fighting machine: R2-Destroy-U.

    So, what did you think of the show?

    Here's the schedule, just in case you missed it:
    Sun, Feb. 22, at 8 p.m. and 12 a.m. ET/PT
    Tue, Feb. 24, at 9 p.m. and 12 a.m. ET/PT
    Sun, Feb 29, at 3 p.m. ET/PT

    If you don't have [link=http://www.starwars.com/hyperspace/member/kessel/f20040218/index.html] Hyperspace [/link] to read the articles and see the exclusive video, then go to [link=http://tlc.discovery.com/fansites/junkyard/episode/movies.html]TLC's site[/link] to check it out. Then come back here and discuss!

    ********
    Here's the skinny: (Highlight to read spoilers)

    ILM has a good idea and look the most professional in the building process.

    First we have the judging on the style, looks, and design:

    ILM gets [hl=black]3rd[/hl] place. Giving them [hl=black]1[/hl] point(s).
    Henson gets [hl=black]2nd[/hl] place. Giving them [hl=black]2[/hl] point(s).
    KNB gets [hl=black]1st[/hl] place. Giving them [hl=black]3[/hl] point(s).

    After the judging, there are three events.

    The first event is shooting aliens in the head.
    The second event is setting aliens on fire until they fall over.
    The third and final event is killing the mother alien by shooting it in the eye after cutting three wires and removing three panels that stand in their way.

    In these events the ranks and points are respectively,
    ILM gets [hl=black]2nd, 1st and 1st giving them 2, 3, and 3 points, giving them a final score of 9.[/hl]

    Henson gets [hl=black]1st, 2nd and 3rd giving them 3, 2, and 0 points, giving them a final score of 7.[/hl]

    KNB gets [hl=black]3rd, 3rd and 2nd giving them 1, 1, and 0 points, giving them a final score of 5.[/hl]

    [hl=red]ILM WINS!!! YEAH FOR STAR WARS!!!![/hl]

    Yeah it was really, like, exhausting. But we gave our all. Can't ask for more than that.

    Like, I need a rest...
