I saw that comic last month. >_< My attitude was pretty much the same as theirs.

BUT, the show has been getting better. So, yay.

NBC wanted something akin to the original, you should replace "what NBC wanted" with "what GST wanted" ;)

Me too I love this show especially now with the so called retooling (personally I think they had it all planned from the getgo) but this is funny! :mrgreen: :lol: :mrgreen:

Even though I like KR08, that comic is pretty funny.

Anyone notice the copyright year though? A whole year before KR08 even premiered.

Even though I posted on your other topic that we needed to try to keep KRO serious I can't help but laugh at this comic. O well.

It's probably something that was done back when the backdoor pilot was announced. The whole Transformers influence was something known about since the movie came out and Ben Silverman saw it.
The new and again improved evil's advertisement is currently too long and too badass to display here. But let's just say that with now 50% more evil, this **** is great! :twisted: :skar:

Since TOS started out from that "The Man of Six Words" joke, some "campy" aspects are part of the territory. TOS matured and achieved good balance between its "action/adventure" and "campy humor" aspects, and KR08 also appears to have matured significantly and achieved a good balance. Much like Season 3 of Lost In Space did in the 60s, though, S4 of TOS had moments of having regressed and shifted too much in a campy direction. KR08 is still the ONLY show on my weekly Must Watch list. Overall, it's the best show featuring an "intelligent machine" character since TOS, which had been the best such show since Lost In Space, IMO. That's quite an accomplishment for a First Season series in general, and for a Sequel series in particular.
