Shut the Hell up Miko.

I had lost track of the show, and I wound up catchign up through reruns. If memory serves, the Autobots fidn out that the core of the Earth is actually Unicron, and that's the source of Dark Energon. We get backstory on Optimus . . . he was merely Orion Pax back in the day, and he wound up teaming with the gladiator Magatronus. Natch, they went their separate ways, and Megatronus because Megatron, while Orion became Optimus. Yadda yadda yadda, Optimus uses the Matrix of Leadership to stop Unicron . . . but he lost his memory, and thinks Megatron is his buddy. And that's why the ads have Optimus getting a Decepticon brand burned onto him. Very interesting.
Oh, and there was an episode where Ratchet gets crazy aggro on Dark Energon, and challenges Megatron at one point, calling himself "your doctor of doom." Hysterical.

Short story: the Autobots are fucked. Optimus Prime has regressed to Orion Pax, and Megatron has convinced him that the Autobots are the bad guys, and that Ratchet is -- *mmmheheheeh* -- "The Doctor Of Doom." Megatron's long game is for Orion to go through archives in order to pick out info for . . . crap, I've forgotten. The Autobots try to get more information, and Arcee manages to jump a space bridge to the Decepticon ship, but Soundwave warps her out before Orion notices. In the end, the Autobots are despairing, because part of the plot involves sending Jack to Cyberton, since he holds the key to Vector Sigma (I think), which Optimus gave to him before battling Unicron. Buuuuut . . . Jack then comes up with the idea of letting the 'Cons make their Space Bridge, and then hijack it.
Oh, and guess who comes back to the Decepticon ship, and is shocked as holy hell to see Orion Pax working for the group? Starscream. Things are about to get even more interesting . . .

Anyway, MECH is trying to make their own transforming robots, and Starscream drops by to help . . . I think in order to screw Megatron. Then there's a fight that has Breakdown goading Bumblebee, and the littlest Autobot giving chase . . . by grabbing a pickup truck and trying to ride it like a scooter . . . only to go off a cliff and into next week.
As for "Orion Pax"? Jack manages to get by an Insecticon and a horde of Scraplets to get access to Vector Sigma. In the end, Megatron whips the crud out of the Autobots . . . but, as expected, Jack gives Orion Pax -- who's found his nuts and bolts -- the Knowledge of the Primes. Cut to Optimus Prime, reborn: "MEGATRON . . . BEGONE!" Yadda yadda yadda, Autobots get their leader back . . . and Peter Cullen sold the hell out of that one line, after playing mild-mannered Orion Pax for two-and-a-half episodes. Cullen could say anything as Prime, and it would still kick ass.
Optimus Prime: (finished downloading the Prime Wisdom) MEGATRON!
Megatron: No! It can't be! You're Orion Pax!!
Optimus: It would appear that I have the touch . . .
Megatron: I order you! STAND DOWN!!!
Optimus: I have the power . . . (powering up weapons)
Megatron: It isn't happening!!!
Optimus: (faceplate covering his mouth) When all is breaking loose, I ride the eye of the storm . . . (firing at Megatron)

And Megatron sure had an interesting day. Pros: Gain an army of loyal Insecticons. Get to make Starscream cry uncle not once, not twice, but three times! Cons: Ship fall down go boom. Just one of those days.
I wonder if Starscream will salvage the T-cog from the clone he vaped at the end to get his own transforming mojo back?

I specifically recall when Starscream went up to the damaged Spacebridge
and came across Megatron's comatose body, he attempted to kill Megatron,
but when he heard Laserbeak approaching (who he referred to by name),
he pretended to be concerned for Megatron's condition.

Before that, we had the fallout of the Relic Quest, where Bulkhead almost died from exposure to TOX-N and a blast in the back from Hardshell. To say Miko is pissed is an understatement. So is Wheeljack, who's still a rebellious badass and such, so they go on a vengeance quest. In the end, Miko is the one who fucks up Hardshell, and Wheeljack blows up a shit-ton of Insecticons. Oh, and Knock Out's chassis takes more of a beating after a few drones make the mistake of shitting on Hardshell . . . figuratively speaking, of course.

Last night's episode in a nutshell: "Oh, hi, mecha-Silas! Oops--bye, mecha-Silas!" Which was rather disappointing, IMHO; it felt like they were trying to fit an episode and a half, if not two, into one episode (Silas in his new body and his change of allegiance, complete with an implied high body count, could easily have been an episode in itself) and everything just felt rushed as a result.

Raf's "study group" . . . so cute. And Agent Fowler does have l33t bathroom-seeking ninja skills, as opposed to saying funny shit whenever he's knocked loopy.
Posted Sep 15, 2012 @ 3:38 PM
Knock Out's overall glee about getting revenge was really satisfying to me, but I feel like we haven't seen the last of Silas or Breakdown.

1. Megatron finds an Iocon relic embedded in rock. It's the Star Sabre, and it can only be used by Primes. Megatron is not a Prime, but he's okay with having a mountain airlifted away, if it means merely keeping it away from Optimus Prime.
2. Of course, Prime gets it. He rushes downhill in truck mode, flies in the air, transforms to robot mode after getting hit, then hangs onto the hilt. The Sabre, impressed by the sheer testicular fortitude (or Cybertronian equivalent thereof) releases itself, sending Prime towards terra firma.
3. Since this might be the most powerful relic we've seen thus far, you'll have to forgive Prime for striking an old-school He-Man pose.
4. Megatron, on the other hand, is as sore a loser as they come. He orders the mountain dropped on Prime's head. The leader of of Autobots responds by slicing it in half, avoiding damage.
4a. The other Autobots cannot believe it.
4b. Megatron . . . dear God, Megatron has a moment of jawdrop. It's a thing of beauty . . . he just stands on his ship, seeing Prime on the viewer, and he is speechless.
5. But wait! Optimus ain't done yet! He whirls around, creating energy, and firing out a shockwave (is that the right word?) that nails the Decepticon ship. If this show wasn't aimed at kids, Prime might have followed up with a middle finger.
Oh, and at the end of the ep, Prime says he's getting a message. From Alpha Trion. Through the damn Star Sabre. And next week, we're promised an epic sword battle between the biggest rivals. Should be fun.

Anyway, Optimus uses the Star Sabre to talk with Alpha Trion in the distant past. Everybody's favorite openly gay Starfleet officer tells him that the Autobots have to track down the Omega Keys, which would regenerate Cybertron. Most of the Autobots love this . . . until three in particular realize that they'd have to leave their flesh-and-blood partners behind. Arcee and Smokescreen go to Egypt to retrieve the first key, and that's where the big fracas between Optimus and Megatron takes place. The maturation of Smokey continues apace . . . he can still annoy, but he can lie low after he phase-shifts through a wall, let everybody think he's dead (and Arcee to believe a third partner got killed), then snap up the Key and run like hell away from Megatron. Prime is still a badass with his sword chopped down, but Megatron still has a huge advantage in terms of swordsmanship

Can someone explain to me why they decided to make Smokescreen the center of the fucking show (more than they already have) by making him the final "relic", the thing everybody wants? Isn't that like the definition of a Mary Sue? Do they have any idea how annoying that little shit-stain is(IMO)? Do they really think he's interesting and fun to watch, is that it? I don't get it.
Posted Oct 5, 2012 @ 11:55 PM
To review: Autobots, Decepticons, Starscream all tied with one Omega Key apiece. It's just like the Weather Dominator arc from G.I. Joe! And I think that's been airing on late night over on The Hub! Knock Out can be badass when he wants. Bulkhead is smarter than I figured . . . and if he's running below full capacity, that is scary. I do miss the flesh-and-blood members of Team Prime . . . especially Agent Fowler. They don't come tougher. If Megatron drops a nuke on him, he'll just stumble around, mumbling, "Yeah, so I told the guy, 'I ain't afraid of no ghosts!'" And then he'd pass out, still breathing.

As for Smokescreen being or at least containing the last Omega Key...is it too much to hope that Knockout gets to torture him just a little, just to finish the denting of his "Oooh, action! Gimme!" mindset that Arcee started?
