    Over on Transformers news site, seibertron.com, the the summary as well as the promo image (which is from a previous episodes) makes it sound like it'll be a clip show. I really hope this isn't the case. I mean, how I do I recap a clip show?

    I read somewhere that the government was ganna kill prime in this episode, it was the same site that mentioned someone dying last time so I doubt its accurate but still mentioning it in case.....

    I was hoping for a flashback episode more then a clip show. I figured that maybe we would learn how and why these Autobots first came to Earth and teamed up with Fowler. Of course it could be both.

    Unfortunately, it is a clip show so far.
    We'll see where this is going.

    Not bad, though.

    I still find it odd that the government needs this report. It never made sense to me that Fowler is the only one in contact with the autobots. Something like that, the government would be all over.

    The Unicron/Unicorn confusion joke again? Sigh. This was a pretty unnecessary and not very good episode to be honest. All it really adds is that there are MECH agents with in the military itself. Meh well hopefully next week will be better.

    So what we have here isn't entirely a clip show; that's part of it. The "people on top" haven't seen what's been going on, and want to take action against Fowler based solely on the information they have. OTOH, if Optimus was with Fowler all this time, why didn't he call him before? (sigh) Answer: Because Fowler was hoping he could convince him by himself. I guess this episode was at least partially meant to show us that Fowler wouldn't go into any situation unprepared. Still, even I wouldn't have thought that he would have a backup plan for this particular situation.

    All in all, the episode wasn't that bad. OTOH, I just think they could have done better than the "disbelief/thinks he's crazy" bit (not to mention the aforementioned "Unicron/Unicorn" bit)....

    It's a clip show... but it's not terrible by clip show standards.

    I though the ending was great though. I certainly couldn't stop laughing :D

    Well, it wasn't all old news. We did find out something new about Silas. He was working on a weapon that could fire from space. Interesting. Somehow, I get the feeling that piece of information will show up again in the future.

    Eh, it's a clip show. I'm ok with it in a 26 episode season. Wouldn't be too happy with a clip show if it were just a 13 episode season.

    Was Project Damocles a reference to Code Geass?

    Yea, was an okay episode, kinda unnecessary imo but I guess they thought it would help anyone who picked the show up in this season. It kept me interested the whole way through and referenced some pretty funny stuff from season 1 so wasn't too bad. But at the end of the episode it pretty much felt like a waste of 20 minutes.

    Oh well, looking forward to next weeks episode, arachnid's coming back with her entire armada. I must say this is a lot earlier than I thought they would re-use the insecticon plotline, but Im glad. I just hope it either isn't wrapped up in this episode or if it is, the conclusion leads us into another interesting plotline(like they did with MECH last week).

    Oh well, see you ladies next week.

    Wow. There must be episodes I haven't seen because I don't remember the part where Bulkhead screamed like a girl, or the Autobots were left to die at some frozen tundra.

    The ending was hilarious, even though one must wonder why Agent Fowler didn't summon Optimus earlier.

    "I'm fine General Bryce. How are you?"
    I lol'd.

    You know, for a recap episode, it actually wasn't that bad. The ending was funny

    @Dudley: Both those clips were from early season 1.

    As recaps go, a good one. A few nice callbacks (The unicorn/unicron joke, the tendency for Fowler to let Vehicles get scanned, and his ability to fly a plane without a pilot suit due to mods by Ratchet).

    Pretty crazy.
