In "Battle Of The Planets", Casey Kasem's character would yell out "TransssMUTE!", causing him to morph into the leader of G-Force.
P: Obi-wan in "A New Hope"E: Theoden in "The Two Towers"Connestion: Huge blockbuster trilogies
Nailed the identifications, but I wouldn't make it so easy a Connection as that....would I?
The "P" is from Star Wars. I steadfastly refuse to suddenly call Star Wars "A New Hope" just because George Lucas wanted to better accomodate those abortions he calls "prequels."The connection is characters who are stricken down become even more powerful. Gandalf the Grey is seemingly killed but comes back as Gandalf the White. Obi Wan is killed, but becomes "more powerful" (his words, not mine) by becoming the non-corporal voice that helps Luke blow up the Death Star.Bickety Bam! The stage collapses, hence no game show.
Hey, that's a damn good Connection, Ben. Kudos. I like that one.Mine was different.
Obi-Wan & Theoden Connestion: Both are old men who are seen as helplessly too deprepit to fight, but are shown to be capable.OR: In both, these men advocate moving injured people because their foes (Sand People/Orcs) will be back...and in greater numbers.OR: Assuming (big IF here) you count Episodes 1-3, then both are franchises where Christopher Lee plays an ineffectual bad guy.
Since Kit asked (in another thread), the Connection I had in mind was "weak minds". Both situations involve mind persuasion (the Stormtrooper's by Obi-Wan, and Theoden's by Saruman).Ben's Connection was better.
