Ultraman Trigger talkback

I actually don't know anything about Final Odyssey as I didn't even learn about it until last year.

Also, I guess it's the next TWO weeks that are clipshows, which is such a crock of **** no matter what their excuse is. There's not even a plot yet to warrant making clipshows. They should have just started the show later. I'd rather have no content that a lousy clipshow. They have no reason to exist in the age of streaming and DVR.

Anyway, I forgot to mention things I hated about this episode. First off, the reuse of Gubila. I hate this monster to death and I'm so sick of seeing it appear in every Ultra show. There are plenty of Tiga monsters that have never shown up since their one episode in Tiga, USE THEM! GUTS Select is getting close to TAC levels of incompetence based on how they all reacted to Not Basco. The dude infiltrated their bases twice and then when they had him surrounded they ALL turned their attention to the computer screen instead of keeping an eye on him. WTF? The camera work was nothing special this wee either. Also, Not Basco's Team Rocket scene was embarassing.

I decided not to watch the live stream of this since it's just a clipshow and I was already tired by that time and just watched it now.

As much as we complain about clipshows, I've noticed comments of the special episode saying things like "Recaps like this makes me want to watch all Ultraman seasons." So it seems some people are getting something out of it.

And apparently they're advertising next week's fucker as showing off Trigger's most epic battles, but he hasn't even had time to have any epic battles. -_-

I'm sure more than a few people guessed what Akito's issue withe monster this episode was when the saw the preview the week before. Granted that problem was predictable but it was still an interesting episode. And is it me or did it look like the strong dark giant,can't remember his name ATM, find a new worty opponent?

And just to talk about theclip shows breifly I'm surprised they skipped over Orb and Geed completely. i can see why when it came to the special teams but you think they had a form when comparing the various forms to Trigger's

I actually figured Akito's parents died by a monster back in like episode 2 considering he was living with the commander.

This past episode was really bad because it was down right boring. Death Drago should not have died. This should have been an ongoing plot to further develop Akito over the course of the series.

Daggorn has lost all credibility as a villain by getting ***** slapped by Yuna. What is it with all of these shows having their villains get smacked by the powerless female lead? He joins the ranks of Igor from Ghost and the Spider Fangire, and of course, this means he is now going to be in love with Yuna and protect her. -_-

The rest of GUTS Select is absolutely useless.

Oh, and now I'm all kinds of confused on the timeline since they said Death Drago was the first monster to appear ever, which was 6 years ago. How is that possible if in Episode 1 they said Golza and Melba attacked over 20 years ago? God the writing of this show is already falling apart.

Trigger sucks. Every episode is getting progressively worse than the last and we had another fucking clip show episode this week. This show makes R/B look amazing.

Personally I'd say Trigger is average at best.. And the clip show stuff don't really bother me all that much since they're a cost saving given how Tysubura his the show a set budget and the production crew has to do what they can to not go over that budget if they want to work again in the future. At least this one was so.what entertaining and not another episode of that dabab(?) Stuff from earlier.

Clipshows bother me in this day and age because they serve no purpose. It was fine back then because shows weren't reaired and usually the video releases were 6 months behind. Nowadays, streaming, downloads, and DVR render them obsolete. If you don't remember something you can easily go back to see something without a problem.

The other issue is we already have TWO clipshows barely two months ago. There is no excuse for a 25 episode series to have THREE clipshows. They might as well have just called this series Ultraman SEED Destiny. It's excessive and shows no forethought went into this series.

The whole show was an absolute waste of time and every episode ends up being worse than the last one. The two parter that went back in time showed us absolutely nothing about the Ultra Ancient Civilization we didn't even know about. All it did was tell us that Trigger became good because Kengo went back in time and turned him good, meaning he's a lifeless caricature who isn't even his own person. He's like one of the create a characters you do in video games that never speak and have no character development because you created them.

What's even worse is for being called New Generation Tiga, there's only been like three actual Tiga monsters in the fucker. Why did they need Gabila, a monster that has been reused many times over in the last several years over Geozark, and actual Tiga monster? With Halloween coming up, how about giving us Girando? Or Magnia? Hell, Sealizar would be a great monster for the season giving it's an undead one.

I was thinking about not even bothering with this series, but if Doc compared it to the best Gundam entry then it must be worth watching.

We caught up on episodes 14 and 15 and once again, there is no devleopment for the GUTS cast that aren't our main trio, no Halloween episode, and a villain whose defeat was utterly pointless because it served no purpose to the narrative.

Man, when I said Trigger was trying to be the Gundam SEED Destiny of Ultraman, I was making a joke, but holy ****, next week is going to be the show's FOURTH clip show.

But assuming that it goes until the end of December like previous series did, it will end up with about the same number of episodes as previous 6 month long entries. So I can only assume this is because someone (the network?) decided they wanted the timeslot filling with Ultra for longer and scheduled it to begin earlier.

It's not like clip shows seem to damage their ratings either. Between Ultra Fights and Retsudens and everything else, they're a long-established part of the franchise at this point. Having said that, yeah I'll be mostly skipping through it next week lol.

Anyway, they finally shoehorned Tiga in! And against one of his show's villains too.

There is no way this show is going to end at episode 25. This weekend's was 19. There's only four weeks left until Christmas and one of those is another fucking clipshow. That means the series will end at 22 at the latest unless it goes into January.

Either way, this show is a joke. They clearly did not have enough material to make an entire 6 month show out of as there has been little to no development for the cast or plot. Half of the show has just been team-up episodes to advertise other Ultra shows.

Imagine hating something as awesome as clipshows and monsters of the week. Doc should just stop watching Ultraman, it'll be better for his blood pressure.
