    Tron: Uprising (Please mark all spoilers)

    Post by katimus_prime on Mon Jan 21, 2013 6:20 pm

    I'm surprised I didn't make this topic before. ^^ T:U is kind of my favorite thing in the universe right now. Just, on the design merit alone, I think it's worth a watch. I wasn't expecting to get so attached to the story, but with a cast like Bruce Boxleitner, Elijah Wood and Lance Henricksen to start with, anything less than amazing is impossible. Oddly enough, I don't find myself siding with the villains in this series. My favorite character is actually Tron.

    Renegade's on the grid, baby! good move on the topic. this is one animated series i really look forward to watching. i like Tron, but he needs to seriously loosen up. a little smile couldn't hurt. we haven't seen him smile/laugh yet, but he did actually let a little laugh out at Beck in one of the episodes. all we saw was his back as he walked away. I'm still waiting for that official smile or something.

    Beck is cool and all, but "the renegade" is one bad ass character. i love the white suit. me favourite villain is Dyson of course. when he first stepped on the grid and gave Tesler shit was pretty damn funny. but ever since leaving Argon city Dyson hasn't been seen. i hope we get to see more of him in the series.

    i can't stand Tesler. i hope Pavel grows evermore psychotic and takes him out.

    Haha, I feel like one of maybe 3 people in the universe that actively likes Tesler.  XD  Oh wellz, what else is new?  I'm actually more disinclined to be interested in Pavel - he's a crazy motherfucker, but I don't dislike him?  He's just not high on my radar.  I am trying very hard not to like Dyson, but I think I'm just so interested in all of the characters that I just end up liking all of them by default.

    I really wish Tron would smile.  He doesn't really have a reason to, but I really wish he would.

    With one episode left, I'm really afraid that
    Spoiler:
    Tron's going to run out or stab Beck in the back, or vice versa.  Since it's only the two of them left, and having seen Tron: Legacy, knowing Tron ends up on Clu's side has been a big frowny face on the entirety of Uprising.  I really like Beck.  I hope nothing more bad happens to him.  >_>

    OH MY GOD THIS SHOW. I came in not expecting too much. I had only seen the original Tron movie and Legacy, and I liked them, but I found there were a lot of things unexplained and it sort of bothered me. I watched Uprising out of curiosity since Kat's tumblr had so much of it and the style made me excited, and boy am I glad to have watched it! AAAHHH <3 I don't know if I have a favourite character since I pretty much like everybody, haha. Tesler is cool by default since his character design is so markedly different (I love how his body is shaped X3) but it's just...his character doesn't really get too much development. We don't see his backstory, his loyalty to Clu, or any of that really. We just see he doesn't tolerate failure very well and has the slightest bit of contempt over his superiors XD

    The ending to Uprising definitely won't be  a happy one, but I don't think it's completely reserved to being the most emotionally shattering ever. Though my money is still on emotionally shattering...I have my tissue boxes and chocolate ready.
    There's a lot of hinting over on TV tropes, and I also haven't seen Legacy in 2 years, but isn't it strange that
    Spoiler:
    Rinzler sort of fights like Beck? And saying that could lead that Beck is the one that becomes Rinzler, and Tron indefinitely is still out there. Also since when Rinzler 'dies' at the end of Legacy, his suit has the familiar coloring of Tron's original suit right? And it's assumed Beck would be wearing The Renegade outfit. I know that Rinzler's voice was distorted but Beck was able to do the same when he got that upgrade disc, so I don't think it's impossible.

    As for how Tron can be an easy favorite, is it just me or is he markedly different in this series than ever before? Yeah, he's still a noble person that has noble ideals, but he's definitely more battle hardened and weary over everything he's gone through. I was pretty attached to him from the start XD

    i can't believe this show is on the verge of cancellation. i'm hoping another season is on the way. i just watched episode 19 "Terminal". awesome episode and my favourite line from Tron
    Spoiler:
    "good news, i'm healed. bad news... i'm healed."

    - Tron while kicking program ass. the uprising has finally begun and made possible after Abels death. and finally, CLU and Dyson will be stepping on the grid soon. i can see Tesler going out of the picture now.
    as for your theory on Beck
    Spoiler:
    i can see Beck turning Rinzler. both show similar fighting styles and i mean kind of sloppy. but, i still find that kind of hard to believe. i'm gonna say that Tron eventually turns Rinzler. his sloppy fighting style probably due to re-purposing. but, i don't know. disney can take this anyway. i just hope it ain't gonna end in a cliff hanger.

    So how about that ending.
    Spoiler:
    Since I was bracing myself for "oh god everybody is going to die"...and nobody actually died, I'm not sure how to feel about the so-called season finale. I thought Uprising was going to be ending and not being cancelled, so a connection to Legacy's total lack of uprising was going to be shown for this finale...aka it'd be squashed violently by CLU's arrival. But that didn't happen and now we're left to the terrors of our own imaginations?
    Gosh darnit, Disney. Gosh darnit. There was no lead in to Tron 3 either. :I It was still a great episode, but as a 'finale' there wasn't really any finishing to it which only makes me wonder how big the Tron fandom's own Operation Rainfall is going to unfold.

    Bumping this topic because I'm feeling Tronnish again.  Also to let people know I've put it into the anime subforum because I don't think I can justify an American Animation TM folder?  I might change my mind, tho.  <3
