Transformers Prime - "New Recruit" Episode 44 Recap

NewRecruit

A new Autobot joins the team. Meanwhile, Starscream seeks out the elusive Red Energon. Finally, a new Autobot. This show needed one for the longest time. Filling in as the eager but immature and inexperienced rookie, Smokescreen essentially takes a role I thought Bumblebee was attached to. This is slightly disappointing, as I feel that […]

Transformers Prime - "Out of the Past" Episode 43 Recap

OutofthePast3

Origin stories are usually hit-or-miss with me. Much of what they’re telling are events we already knew about, so further elaboration tends to be repetitive and unnecessary. “Out of the Past” does suffer from this, since it explains how Arcee and Cliffjumper became partners and eventually end up on Earth. It doesn’t advance the overall […]

Transformers Prime - "Hurt" Episode 42 Recap

Hurt2

Bulkhead’s near-demise forces an angry Miko to seek vengeance with Wheeljack. Last episode promptly teased the audiences by ending on a cliffhanger and leaving Bulkhead’s fate uncertain. “Toxicity” spent the entire half-hour building up his bond with Miko and I thought it was great. They set it in stone and I personally believe that in […]

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 […]

Review: "Transformers Prime: One Shall Stand" Stands Above the Live Action Movies

tfprime-6

I felt a little bit of trepidation when I first saw the box of Transformers Prime: One Shall Stand. The character designs looked like the characters in Michael Bay’s Transformers: Bayformers. The first Bayformers movie is the only movie that I’ve ever walked out in the middle of, and seeing the rest later on cable […]

Optimus Prime Thumbnail

The “Optimus Prime: Up Close and Personal” panel, hosted by Larry King, was really a tribute to the man who has voiced Optimus Prime for almost 30 years, Peter Cullen. When King and Cullen appeared before the crowd, the entire audience rose in standing ovation for the both of them. Even after a short pre-recorded […]
