Im just not feeling the whole HOS concept. Remember "Back to the Future III" where they hit the wild west ? Thats the kind of vibe I get from HOS. They didnt just mix apples and oranges, they put them together in the blender and made fruit slush.

I could sit and type arguements all day about why I think HOS is just dumb. But they say a picture is worth 1000 words. So if I can get a few chuckles from some of the readers, Ive made my point without turning this thread into another long, boring debate.

Plus I had a few cold ones when I was picking out the pictures ! ;)

I don't think you understand the Steam Age genre, which is what this is based on. If I was to take your argument it would be like saying Art Deco only existed in NYC and there were no deviations that existed any where else in the world, which is simply not true.

It's okay not to like HoS but to say it doesn't make sense and say that it is pointless or stupid shows that you don't have a firm understanding. There were many significant points in history during the Steam Age: Transcontinental Railroad, Civil War, Electricity, and First Flight. This is why you are seeing the Wild West, Durigibles, and all these different steampowered vehicles.

Vehicles during this age included: Steam engines, Ironclads, Fire Engines, Hot Air Balloons, and proto type amphibians and airplanes.

I agree with you to a certain extent. I am a big history buff. Ive even been to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. I recently watched "The men that built America" and "Mankind - The Story of All of Us" so I know alot about the 1800's industrial revolution.

But heres my thing...I like to keep my science fiction and my history seperated. Im not a big fan of gimmick crossovers. If Im watching a western or civil war drama, I dont want to see giant robots or a Delorean. And if Im watching (or reading) a science fiction saga, I want as little human related content as possible. Lets leave the established Transformers timeline alone. They awakended from stasis mode in the 1980's. I dont need to see alternate storylines with cowboys, ancient Egyptians, the Knights Templar, or Cro Magnons.

Also on this website, it seems that humor is often mistaken for ignorance.
