This is just something I've been thinking about recently and thought I'd share it with the rest of you. I'm sure you all remember that one episode of Road Rovers titled "Hunter's Heroes", how it was a play on "Hogan's Heroes". I started wondering, what if, had there been other episodes of the show, the other Rovers got their names in the episode title, and what would they be like? Here's what I thought up so far:
"Ignorance is Blitz"
A play on the phrase "ignorance is bliss", of course. I'm not sure what kind of plot this episode would have, though. Suppose it would be about Blitz being ignorant about something - which of course happened a lot in the original show in general.
"Going Into Exile"
Another play on words, this time about going in exile (not the Rover). The plot I imagined for this, however, would be that the Rovers literally go inside Exile (their packmate) via a shrinking devise, because the Husky has something seriously wrong in his system that needs to be removed in that manner. I'm sure a lot of you are familiar with this type of storyline, but I'd try to make it as original as possible.
"The Shaggy Man"
Reference to the movie "The Shaggy Dog" where a man turns into a shaggy dog. Well, in this episode, Shag turns into a human man. Either on purpose or by accident, I don't know. Either way, it would also serve as a reference to the very first episode where Colleen mentioned, "Shag's not very human."
"Colleen On Me"
Play on the phrase/title "Lean On Me" (which is both a movie and a song in real life). This episode has two potential storylines: Colleen gets stuck to one of her teammates, and its either Hunter or Blitz, depending on where everyone's relationship is with at the time. I suppose there's more potential for her being stuck to Blitz, since it would force them to figure out how to work well with one another.
This would reference many sayings: "Man up", "Suit up", "Shut up", all of which are fitting for what I have in mind for the plot: this would be the episode where Muzzle first goes through the canomutator, and comes out a fearsome canosapien. At first this is a good thing for the team, but then its discovered that going through the machine wasn't such a good idea: because Muzzle has already been put through the faulty canomutator that Shepherd's old partner made, his system has been screwed up (thus explaining his current state), which has resulted in it not being able to handle a second mutation. Muzzle becomes more erratic and deranged than ever, so the Rovers have to catch him and then de-mutate him back to his former state. However, this doesn't mean Muzzle never again becomes a canosapien. He does again, but this time in much shorter periods of time.
Well, that's it for the canon Rovers. I ended up even thinking up Name Titles for a few OCs as well:
A plotline I once suggested to about his OC, Tsunami, the Samurai Rover. Its basically where Tsunami, after struggling with nightmares about his repressed memories of what happened to his first human master, comes to find out what really happened to Shotaro, and vows revenge.
A Geist-centric storyline. Not much else to say there.
This is the title I chose for Roger's first appearance, where he starts off as a happy dog living on his owner's animal reserve, until he's captured and about to be mutated by Parvo - only to be rescued by the very dogs he's seen on TV: the Road Rovers. After accidentally stowing away on their ship and getting mutated into a Road Rover himself, Roger embarks on a journey when he discovers the residence of his late owner is being taken away from her adult granddaughter, meaning all the animals won't be able to live there anymore. Fortunately, with the help of his new friends, Roger is able to find the true will, and the residence is saved. And thus starts Roger's journey to insure that all other homes will be safe as well.
"Sanjuro and Company"
A reference to two movies: "Sanjuro" (a Japanese film) and "Oliver and Company". Its basically just a plotline for 's Ninja-ken, I have nothing specific in mind.
"Ace of Gunther"
In this episode, I'd introduce Ace (property of ) and Gunther (property of ).
What do you guys think?
