Transformers Prime - "Persuasion" - Episode 63 Recap

Persuasion2

Megatron tries to convince Ratchet to finalize the Synthetic Energon to recreate Cybertron. With only two episodes left, “Persuasion” relinquishes the usual brand of action in favor of build up. Stuff happens, but in tiny increments and a whole lot of it is really just padding until the final conclusion. Predaking’s not getting any calmer […]

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 Prime - "Minus One" - Episode 62 Recap

MinusOne2

The Autobots capture Soundwave and attempt to extract valuable information out of him. With new Cyber-matter in hand, the Decepticons now have a means to terraform both Cybertron and Earth. Megatron decides to go with the one surefire plan to bring both planets to his knees: resurrect the Omega Lock with the newly acquired materials, […]

Transformers Prime - "Evolution" - Episode 61 Recap

Evolution1

Predaking proves he’s more than he seems when he transforms and gains intelligence. Afraid he might rebel, the Decepticons concoct a plot to trick the Autobots into destroying the other Predacon clones.   Predaking’s reveal is brilliant. After Starscream peeves him off one too many times, Predaking transforms into robot mode, an action the Predacons […]

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. […]

Review: "Transformers Rescue Bots: Energize" & "Slugterra: Slugs Unleashed"

thumb-rescuebotsslugterra

As I’m sure I’ve written before, I’d be shocked and dismayed at the way Transformers: Rescue Bots smashes little boy hot buttons by centering on rescue vehicles that turn into giant robots, except that it’s actually a really good show. The show’s second DVD, Transformers Rescue Bots: Energize, has just been released, and my only […]

Transformers Prime - "Thirst" - Episode 60 Recap

Thirst1

An experiment goes awry, leaving Knock Out and Starscream to deal with a horde of vampiric Decepticons. Disregard what I said about the continuity’s lethargic pacing. “Thirst” may not advance the plot much, but very few episodes strive to be this memorable. “Thirst” is everything I ever wanted starring two of the most extravagant characters in […]

Transformers Prime - "Plus One" - Episode 59 Recap

PlusOne1

Wheeljack and Arcee team up to find another Predacon fossil. Meanwhile unlikely pairing June and Fowler track another only for Knock Out to intrude. Oh, so Wheeljack didn’t leave the Autobots, he was just being huffy. Unfortunately, this does little to change my mind from last episode’s treatment of him. Arcee notices and takes him […]

Transformers Prime - "Chain of Command" Episode 58 Recap

ChainofCommands2

Tensions rise between the hotheaded Wheeljack and the straitlaced Ultra Magnus. At the same time, they must deal with Predaking’s return! I’ve got to be careful what I wish for. I wanted conflict between Ultra Magnus and Wheeljack and the episode delivered exactly that. Unfortunately, the effort was less then desirable. The plot follows a  […]
