Review: "Transformers Animated: The Complete Series" is Energon-y Goodness

TFA-ReviewPic2

Transformers Animated is an odd duck: simultaneously the redheaded stepchild, yet praised beyond comprehension. I’ve seen multiple complaints about the art direction and its kid-centric appeal (which is strange since the show not only aims for that demographic, but its closest counterpart – the G1 cartoon – is hardly any less cheesy), while the show […]

Transformers Animated - "Velocity" - Episode 21 Recap

Velocity1

Bumblebee and Sari investigate an illegal drag race to look for a mysterious blue car. As a Bumblebee episode, “Velocity” does everything right. Here, an illegal drag race brings out Bee’s ego when a mysterious blue racer (amusingly designed to look like the famous Mach-5) bests him in the tracks. Unable accept the idea that […]

Transformers Animated - "Garbage In, Garbage Out" Episode 20 Recap

GarbageInGarbageOut1

Ratchet meets a crazy, childish, garbage-spewing robot. Did I say “Nature’s Call” was the funniest Transformers Animated episode ever? I change my mind, this is the funniest episode ever. Wreck-Gar is a surreal robot with the attention span of a toaster, the mind of an impressionable child, and a devoted member of the Church of Mondegreen. […]

Transformers Animated - "Mission Accomplished" - Episode 19 Recap

MissionAccomplished1

Starscream returns from the grave to get revenge on Megatron and the Autobots! Compared to the two episodes before it, “Mission Accomplished” lags a bit little behind. In this episode, the Autobot Elite Guards once again don’t play nice and refuse to believe Megatron is back. Never mind that Ultra Magnus believed and supported Optimus’ […]

Transformers Animated - "The Return of the Headmaster" - Episode 18 Recap

TheReturnofTheHeadmaster2

The Headmaster’s return spells trouble as he takes over Sentinel’s body. Now the egotistic Elite Guard has to suck in its pride and ask Optimus for help. Sentinel is every annoying jerk you’ve ever meant: he’s the pebble in your shoe, the papercut that ruins that your day, the wrong number that wakes you at […]

Transformers Animated - "The Elite Guard" Episode 17 Recap

TheEliteGuard1

The Autobots are left to pick up the pieces after the battle against the Decepticons, but things grow complicated with the arrival of the Autobot Elite Guards and the matter of the now-dispersed Allspark. Last time on Transformers Animated, Optimus’ team fought a newly reconstructed Megatron as both factions duked it out for the Allspark. […]

Transformers Animated - "Megatron Rising, Part 2" - Episode 16 Recap

MegatronRisingPartTwo5

The battle for the Allspark is on! It’s Autobots versus Decepticons as they duke it out to save the world! Last episode ended with a riveting cliffhanger when Megatron gained a new body, spelling trouble for Optimus’ crew. Now Megatron has two tasks to accomplish: get the Allspark and take back Cybertron for the Decepticons. The Cons […]

Transformers Animated - "Megatron Rising, Part One" Episode 15 Recap

MegatronRisingPartOne3

The rise of the Decepticons puts the Autobot team on edge. Stressed out, Optimus Prime makes one bad decision after another, creating internal strife amongst the crew. Will he get his act together in time to save Detroit from the Cons? How do you define Optimus Prime? From what I’ve gathered, he’s usually the de […]

Transformers Animated - "Nature's Call" Episode 14 Recap

NatureCalls4

A mysterious creature causes Prowl, Bumblebee, and Sari to investigate. Can Bumblebee and Prowl work together despite their differences? This is the funniest episode in Transformers Animated. A large portion of the humor here derives from Bumblebee’s exaggerated dismay over camping. When Optimus sends him, Prowl, and Sari to investigate an energy reading in the […]
