    Hey, Cavalier doesn't yet know how Lost has ended. Imagine trying to navigate the maze of superhero relationships.
  • Electra
    Cavalier should definitely not start his study of superhero relationships with this one.
  • AvengerAssembled
    There's a large angry minotaur in the middle of this particular maze. The bottom half is Gina's issues. The top half is Steve's issues.
  •  
    It is a issuetaur.
  • Electra
    The relationship between Caradoc/Harrier/Steve and Miss Americana/Cyberknife/Gina is a master class in convoluted superhero relationships.

    'New genre show smell' is when you're still fresh enough that you can still do freak of the week episodes tying into the core concept while dropping little bits of a larger storyline and aspects of the main characters. Later on you inevitably get stuck in your own bigger picture and episodes either have to be all about that season's big bad or some overwrought personal drama that becomes more and more frequent.
    •  
    • photo-thumb-517.gif?_r=1361681969Gizmo
      Shows that start off as heavily serialized generally have a complete story plotted out and only run into trouble when they get renewed for the season after that story finishes. More episodic shows tend to inevitably become more and more serialized as they succumb to the weight of their expanding continuity.
      • AvengerAssembled
        Hah-hah, okay.
      • Ecalsneerg
        The Chris Carter effect?
      • AvengerAssembled
        I would probably have said "new genre show smell" was just not smelling very good, but your way sounds better, Giz.
      •  
      • Thunder King
        Whether or not a show being less episodic depends entirely on how good the show is, lol.
      • Gizmo
        Admittedly I don't actually like 'new car smell' but I do really like sounding glib, so.
      • KnightDisciple
        **is honestly getting a bit wary of shows that decide to just throw in the "Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse" at this point. :P**
      • Gizmo
        Obvious exceptions include the LOST model, where the show is heavily serialized but clearly never had any idea where it was going the Scooby Doo model where there's no continuity to speak of at all.
      •  
        Well, it's not 'just throwing it in', KD. That's the entire premise of the show.
      •  
        That's like being wary of Battlestar Galactica for just throwing in robots.
      • AvengerAssembled
        Aw yeah, new desk fan works.

      • AvengerAssembled

      • photo-thumb-517.gif?_r=1361681969Gizmo

        Speaking of Battlestar, science fiction show losing their new genre show smell have a habit of replacing it with space Jesus, whereas fantasy shows go the other route and inevitably introduce their version of the devil.
      •  
        Although, to be fair, in the latter case they've usually already introduced their equivalents of demons and hell, so it's not quite as out of left field.
      •  
        It's more noticeable on high fantasy shows like... I'm going to say Beastmaster.

    ... ugh, variant level

    Every new X writer creates half a dozen new young mutants, and most of the above should be full time X-Men or other heroes
  •  
    But the cast keeps getting more and more bloated, and none of the newer writers do anything with the older group
  •  
    Remember when Surge was the leader of the new, up and coming mutant kid group? I haven't seen her on screen in years.
  •  
    I mean, okay, Sunspot and Cannonball are now Avengers. cool, great. But there are -so- many of those kids, there aren't homes for any of them. Cool characters with interesting powers.

At least Eberron had a bandaid for that, and I appreciate it and use it.

Well, we already killed their moms - who apparently worshipped Pazuzu - but fortunately, there was a friendly True Neutral cyclops nearby who offered to raise them right.

That evil=/=eat babies for Orcus

I'd argue that's bad DMing, not an inherently flaw with the alignment system

Vahnyu

would you not kill the babies of Alien Xenomorphs?

I think Pathfinder does the same thing, too.

And evil =/= eat babies is something Planescape did years before Eberron or Pathfinder, guys
