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

by Neo Yion February 15, 2013
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 […]

Transformers Animated - "Nanosec" Episode 8 Recap

by Neo Yion February 5, 2013
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

by Neo Yion January 9, 2013
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

by Neo Yion December 4, 2012
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

by Neo Yion November 26, 2012
 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 Prime - "Darkest Hour" Episode 52 Recap

by Neo Yion November 5, 2012
Wow, what a rush. I was unsure how season two’s finale would top last season’s. The “One Shall Rise” trilogy brought forth Unicron (essentially the Transformers Devil) and pulled an unexpected plot twist where Optimus loses his memories and joins the Decepticons. That last twist came out of nowhere and drove me into anticipation for […]

Renegeration2

Transformers Prime - "Regeneration" Episode 51 Recap

by Neo Yion October 29, 2012
The Autobots engage in an all-out battle with the Decepticons for the Omega Keys. This episode was a chore to sit through. As heart-pounding and unexpected as it was, it’s marred by questionable decisions, convenient twists and plot holes. The biggest issue is Dreadwing’s death. Unable to side with the Autobots yet unwilling to betray […]

Transformers Prime - "Patch" Episode 50 Recap

by Neo Yion October 25, 2012
Megatron digs deep into Starscream’s mind to evaluate his true loyalties. Clip shows are hard to write for. What is one, other than a glorified thirty minute recap? Somehow, Transformer Prime’s second season slapped in two of them, one of which is completely abysmal. While “Grill” resolved the fake Optimus issue from a previous episode, […]

InsideJob2

Transformers Prime - "Inside Job" Episode 49 Recap

by Neo Yion October 23, 2012
Stuck onboard the Nemesis, Smokescreen attempts to retrieve the Omega Keys from the Decepticons. Ever the naive kid, Smokescreen spent the better part of last episode’s “Hard Knocks” boosting his own ego. He thinks he is destined for greater things because he’s part of Optimus’ crew and had openly declared how special he is. As […]

Transformers Prime - "Hard Knocks" Episode 48 Recap

by Neo Yion October 19, 2012
The Autobots race for the remaining Omega Keys. In the end, they discover something unexpected. For the life of me, I will forever be confused by the official plot summary given to “Hard Knocks” because it makes it sound like Knock Out and Starscream would have more screen time than what they actually got. Knock […]
