Transformers Animated - "Lost and Found" Episode 11 Recap

LostAndFound4

The return of the Decepticons is enough to send the Autobots in a panicked frenzy as they prepare themselves for their biggest fight yet! One criticism coming from Transformers Animated detractors is the lack of Decepticons throughout season one. Not since episode three has there been one onscreen except for Megatron, who is handicapped and […]

Transformers Animated - "Sound and Fury" Episode 10 Recap

SoundAndFury

Megatron offers to help Isaac Sumdac build a robot for his daughter’s birthday. Unbeknownst to Sumdac, it is a secret ploy for Megatron to gain a new body and defeat the Autobots. It was only a matter of time before someone took Sari’s misuse of the Allspark Key and turned it against her. Megatron knows […]

Transformers Animated - "Along Came a Spider" Episode 9 Recap

AlongCameASpider4

Optimus Prime is reunited with an old friend who vows revenge for a past incident. The idea of Optimus Prime as an inexperienced young Bot hit sour notes with a few Transformers fans expecting the older, wiser father figure. I personally think this was a bold switch. Think of it as a “what if” take […]

Nanosec3

Bumblebee gets more than he can chew when he gains turbo boosters to enhance his speed. After the heavy-handed and serious nature of the previous episode, “Nanosec” returns to a simpler and lighter format. Is it any surprise it stars Bumblebee? Always the little speed demon, Bumblebee is ecstatic when Sari brings her father’s prototype […]

Transformers Animated - "Thrill of the Hunt" Episode 7 Recap

ThrillofTheHunt2

Ratchet’s past catches up to him when he confronts an old foe from his war days. One of the biggest age-old stigmas associated with kid’s shows is perceived childishness; Transformers Animated endures that ill-remarked moniker to this day. There certainly are a number of series that condescend to children’s intelligence, but an edgier product isn’t […]

Transformers Animated - "Blast From the Past" Episode 6 Recap

BlastTothePast3

Bulkhead tries to be more graceful when he wrecks everything in his path. Meanwhile, Megatron reveals himself to Sumdac and tricks him into creating the Dinobots. Bulkhead is pretty far down my list of favorite characters ever. The Big Guy trope doesn’t do it for me; it usually revolves around how simpleminded and idiotic such […]

Transformers Animated - "Total Meltdown" Episode 5 Recap

TotalMeltdown5

 Bumblebee feels inferior when his teammates endlessly tease him. Can he prove his worth with the arrival of new villain, Meltdown? Remember when I mentioned how pathetic the human villains are in the last recap? Scratch that, Meltdown is an exception. Prometheus Black can be best defined as Isaac Sumdac’s opposite. The biggest distinction is […]

Transformers Animated - "Home Is Where the Spark Is" Episode 4 Recap

HomeIsWhereTheSparkIs4

Prowl is the odd bot out as he suffers through Bumblebee’s rambunctious personality. How do you solve a problem like Prowl? Specifically starting off as a selfish loner, Prowl admitted the vital necessity of teamwork and accepted his surrounding crew. Introverts need time to come out of their shell though, and the entirety of “Home […]

Transformers Animated - "Transform and Roll Out: Part 3" Episode 3 Recap

TransformAndRollOutThree6

Optimus must decide between giving up the Allspark or the lives of Detroit when Starscream challenges the Autobots. If the third part of “Transform and Roll Out” suffers from anything, it’s that it feels a bit detached from the first two. Part one works as an opener that sets the tone while Part two establishes […]

Transformers Animated - "Transform and Roll Out: Part 2" Episode 2 Recap

TransformAndRollOutTwo4

Stranded on Planet Earth, Optimus’ crew must battle a beastly creature to save its inhabitants. With Megatron down for the count, the Autobot’s ship crashes into the bottom of Lake Erie.
