Only ever caught a few episodes, but the concept was cool as hell. There is a slight chance that I'm conflating some of the plot lines with the Police Academy animated series from around the same time, though.

No.

For me:

The Real Ghostbusters
Thundarr the Barbarian
Dungeons and Dragons
Transformers
GIJoe
He-Man and the Masters of the Universe
Thundercats
Kidd Video
Robotix
MASK

Edit: almost forgot something for which I loved the opening, and what I saw of the show, but never got to see all of: The Mysterious Cities of Gold.

Wow.  That one brings back lots of memories.. 

Transformers
GIJoe
He-Man and the Masters of the Universe
Thundercats

I remember that cities of gold one.. Loved that bird=plane thinggy..

Never got into the transformers cartoon, but LOVED The comics..  The opposite though for both He-man and Thundercats..

Oh, that was a show that got a raw deal.  Really wished that someone would have tried reviving it.

FInally caught Terminator Dark fate..  Not bad.  Better than T3, and about the same as T5..  Just behind Salvation for me..  Good swan song for Arnie's character though.

Watching Robot Jox. Its been a long time since Ive seen it.
I can see how it has something to do with Battletech and at the same time how it doesn't.

Watched the first episode of Sandman on Netflix. Wow. Just Wow. It blows any other adaptation out of the water. 12/10.

Pure awesomeness, can't wait to watch the rest of the season. I'll take it easy adn not binge it all tonight. Savor it.

Man, it's been donkey's years since i even heard of that, let alone saw Robot Jox.  OR its sequel, robot wars..  Or a 'remotely linked film', crash and burn.

How have I not heard about this before?

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/korean-war-epic-devotion-features-authentic-aircraft-from-the-period/ar-AA10lZXF?ocid=msedgntp&cvid=c45b0ac00b284f3993eaf047cb06700c

A period piece using real period aircraft, notably the lovely Corsair? Count me in.

Topical for me, too, since I just finished Cleaver's Holding the Line: The Naval Air Campaign in Korea. Highly recommended.
Thought I might get a rocket ride when I was a child.          We are the wild youth, 
But it was a lie, that I told myself                                          Chasing visions of our futures.
When I needed something good.                                            One day we'll reveal the truth,
At 17, I had a better dream; now I'm 33, and it isn't me.        That one will die before he gets there.

But I'd think of something better if I could

Prey (2022) So we hunkered down and watched the latest Predator movie on the weekend and... it's just okay. The setting was fine, loved the landscape, and the lead characters were also good, but... the first half is very slow, and full of cliches. The second half nearly makes up for it, but the Predator seems very inconsistent with its behavior. It was entertaining, but nothing special. Rating: 6/10

Watched it this morning. 
The Lead/Amber was solid, I've seen her in a few other things.
The "lowtech" Predator toys were still way above the locals which isn't surprising since I've never once seen a Predator on equal footing, lol.
I was entertained :)

The Centurions was a Magical Girls show.

Look at the transformation sequence it used and then tell me otherwise. ;D

Commissioning a show, then canceling it halfway through the first season was FOX's hobby in the 00s.

Watched Prey/Predator 5 last night.  Have to agree it wasn't the most terrible entry in the franchise but not the best either.

Further thoughts on it probably go into rule 4 territory.

I'd give it a solid 7/10.

Prey/Predator 5 got me going on a minor rabit hole of watching the rest of the Alins franchise I hadn't sat and watched all the way through from beginning to end.

AvP: Just highlighted how incompetent the predators really are and makes one wonder how the hell they managed to develop space flight, let alone practical interstellar travel.

AvP2: A little better but still seemed a bit off for the predator's competence.

Covenant: Wow that crew was just way too trusting of David.  The only way the end makes sense is if Daniels just didn't know about Walter's self repair ability.
