Has it been stated somewhere that Season 3 is only going to be 13 episodes?

So far I'm liking the summaries for the first 3 episodes.

Yeah, I had a good run back around '03/'04 where I'd drunk post pretty much every weekend. I think it was because I used to drink at house parties way more often. Sadly, nowadays, I'm usually away from a computer when I'm drunk.

I wasn't very impressed with last night's episode. It was to the point that I was almost falling asleep. I just don't like the fact that the characters aren't progressing at all. All the so called "good" guys have such boring personalities. I'm talking about Peter, Parkman and Mohinder. Nathan and N...

So, I want to be able to check out all the panels and seminars, but am not interested in the exclusive toys. Would the best bet be to then just pay the general admission fee? What are any of you who are planning to go going to do?

Soundwave's new deco I really like, and Ratbat is interesting. No sure I'll pick up a second one though. ... Yeah, I really want Ratbat now, but I don't know if I want to buy a whole new Soundwave with an ugly new paint job just to get him. It would have been cool if they had a set of Casseticon ch...

If you're serious about Cosmos, you should check out the Image TF/GIJoe Crossover Vol. 4. Cosmos is the one that teams up with Hawk to destroy Unicron. Probobly the most significan thing he ever did in TF fiction. My favorite odd character was Hook. He always seemed way too smart and sophisticated t...

I figured I'd copy and paste my post from the Animated Toys thread: Got Safeguard today. Bots are pretty nice looking in robot mode. I'd give the edge to Jetfire because of the Pilot goggles. Jet modes are fairly basic but they're still pretty cool. The combined jet mode is the lamest part of the se...

Finally got around to listening to the commentary. Very interesting stuff. I loved getting the chance to listen in on how a lot of the little things in the show came about. These guys definitely love what they are doing, which was evident even before hearing the commentary. One of my favorite parts ...

Ok, Animated is ending after Season 3, not being cancelled. We'll still get lots of new Animated toys coming out this year. Also, there has been no word on how many episodes the new season will be or for how long it will run, so it could be a nice big number that doubles the amount of episodes we've...

Yeah, every new "chapter" of Heroes seems to see the characters do the exact same thing they've been doing since the series began. Like Auros said, none of the characters actually develop at all. One of the reasons I think the show is struggling is because all of the so called "good guys" are boring...

Damn. Those are sorely tempting. I don't want to get into Legends but those little guys are tempting me into them along with Cosmos and Warpath. Thanks for the pics, Ackula.

Yeah, I think the Beast Wars series' strongest point was how well they developed the characters. In G1 and Armada, we only got a few episodes with each character, before everyone was replaced by a new wave of toys that were now filling the shelves. In Beast Wars they stuck with a core group of about...

Finally got my hands on Blurr and Swindle. There has been a new toy shortage in Western Canada pretty much since November, but I found these guys at a Toy Traders shop at retail price. Swindle has a really nice truck mode, and I love the giant cannon on top as a nod to his G1 self. Transformation is...

Kurt Warner is now 1st, 2nd and 3rd in all time passing yards in a Superbowl Game. He was also only the second QB to play in the Superbowl for two different teams. Even though he lost, I think he should have cemented his spot in the Hall of Fame last Sunday.

I have a slightly off topic question that relates to Star Wars:

Is the CGI Clone Wars series a continuation of the Clone Wars movie from this past summer? And how does it compare to the Cell Animated series from a few years ago?
