I prefer WAC to the vile and disgusting Ewoks. When you put it that way I LOVE WAC!
I like WAC. <<;
@Seerow: I have this sneaking suspicion you might be a clone, with all the "likes" I'm giving you lately. If you're short, like cats, had changeable eye color that settled into green, like Obi-Wan...you might be me.
I'm all of those save for the solid brown eyes. We have alot in common, my friend.
Maybe we we're seperated at birth. Its possible for identical twins to have different eye colors. =b
This is relevant how?
@Darth_Zandalor: it's not. Your point? The occasional deviation from the point of the thread is allowed.
I liked this episode and hated myself for liking it. It filled up my cup for cheesy, campy, goodness. I also like WAC.
I feel like a dunce for asking, but who was WAC based on? His style of comedy and even his voice seems very familiar, but I just can't place it.
Our forum. I'm not sure, but it did seem familiar...
He seemed like a homage to this board. Appearance and voice wise he reminded me of Alpha 5, not surprisingly. He also seems to have a bit of Marvin the Martian and Gir in him.
Gascon: WAC? What's the double-u stand for?
WAC-47: I don't know.
I really didn't see any connection to this board. I doubt anyone at TCW spends any significant amount of time here, I think it was just a coincidence.
WAC seemed to fill a generic role more than resembling any specific cartoon character to me. I can kinda see a little Marvin the Martian in there, but there's a lot of cartoon characters I can see a little bit of in there as well.
DL said at one point he did. I think one of the crew used to have an account here as well.
TCW has done a ton of homages and they're usually very obvious, I didn't see anything you could point to in this episode that's specific to LACWAC. I'll keep an eye out for connections in the upcoming episode, but I doubt I'll see any. I did see things that were definitely un-LACWACy, like the inability to get Gascon's rank right. That's not something we would miss up.
I guess they could be saying that LACWAC is childish, stupid and terribly unfunny, but I doubt it.
If it's an homage, it's a terrible, inaccurate and unrecognizable one.
@CT-867-5309 is right, let's hope it wasn't a homage to this great forum
The part about deliberately calling people the wrong names as a show of disrespect rang true to some of my experiences here...
In all honesty WAC is probably just another of TCW's really literally names. The bot is whack. But he does kinda resemble how annoy the TCW crew might find us as backseat writers. Its quite likely someone working on the show views this board from time to time. I've been on many boards associated with fandoms and have often found them regularly visited (often in secret) by crew members and actors alive.
Loved this episode. Honestly, a lot of you people have no sense of fun. I loved everything about this episode. Even had a few laugh out loud moments.
Pushing 40 here, and glad I can still watch certain shows with the same child-like wonder I did when i was small.
Lets not insinuate people who did not enjoy this episode have no sense of fun. I know people here who didn't like the episode as all and absolutely have a great sense of fun. We have good times here. The Looney Tunes style humor and the very light tone didn't work for everyone like it worked for me. Some folks have more tolerance for cheese than others. I like that sort of thing and I'm no spring chicken anymore either. Maybe being older helps? I could easily predict folks between 18-25 on hear would hate this but I think its more down subjectivity.
After watching this episode a second time, I could actually understand a bit more of what happened in it. And I think it make me sympathize with the Super T a bit more and see him as not quite so stupid as I originally though he was. I remember a lot of people were saying something about him being a dullard for going there himself to investigate, but I think it makes a lot of sense in this situation. Most if not all of the other droids on that ship are utter morons. If he had waited and just sent more troops, the droids would have gotten of the ship a lot sooner because everyone and their uncle knows they are stupid. And the poor guy's stuck with a ship full of dime-store droids, and you can tell it by his tone. It's not 'Zounds! I shall not have my plans foiled by the Republic!" it's more like "I know you all are cheap droids. It's why I'm going there myself otherwise you'd just crap things up."
I guess after saying all this, I kinda feel bad for the guy. Being stuck with a ship full of these kinds of derpy droids must not be easy, especially if you don't really have a choice in it.
One thing I actually liked about this episode I forgot to mention was that the room the flash-disk-decoder thing was in felt a lot like a similar room that could have been encountered in Dark Forces which to me has a real OT feel. That didn't really do much to make me enjoy the episode though. The Droids cartoon series also has some OT-feeling environments but that alone is not enough to redeem it.
