  • Well, obviously nothing like the 80s show...

    Such a shame it ends with an even worse fate for Prime with him potentially 'dead'. I like the darker tone of the show, but I'd like for one finale to be less dark with Prime not getting the short end of the stick for a change [amnesia in the 1st finale]. That's a shame that Dreadwing was killed. I think he could've been a neat anti-hero like Dinobot from Beast Wars by joining the Autobots. I still think it was too easily resolved that Megatron accepted Starscream just like that even killing his most loyal soldier just because SS had all 4 keys. Another issue I have is why Rachet just didn't bother keeping the kids safe and letting them be captured like that. If he kept them safe, then Prime wouldn't have had to give up the keys to save them. These kids better be worth it for all that trouble... I will hope season 3 will pick things up again and introduce a few more characters on the autobot side.moreless
  • 2x03 - Episode Title was Completely Justified

    This episode more than earned it's title. The hits just kept coming and coming. That by the end I was a little puddle of tears and snot.

    There were many brilliant touches. While the use of the humans to manipulate the Autobots has been done before they have never been used when the fate of the whole of Cybertron hanged in the balance. When Optimus made his decision to save Earth? I freaking Kermit flailed because of how awesome that little scene was. Optimus is so my favorite (always and forever!) which is why the end of the episode had be sobbing like my heart was broken. And seriously, panning to show his arm in the wreckage... now the show is just twisting the knife. It's in! I'm already dead of heartbreak, stop trying to reduce it to pulp!

    One of the creepiest bits in this episode was Megatron's glee over Optimus destroying the Omega Lock. It's his home planet too and his happiness is freaking disturbing as all get out. Ugh. *shudders*

    A great episode. That's the way to do a season finale.moreless
  • Hardcore ending for this season

    The final four episodes of this season is a blast. Starscream has gotten all four omega keys and brings them to Megatron. It looked like Knock Out was going to be in that wall for a long time or until Nemesis is destroyed, but Megatron needs him to connect Starscream and himself to see if Starscream is worthy of joining back with the Decepticons or to die. Megatron decided to have Starscream back and with that Starscream now has his new T-cog in his body so he can transform again. The Autobots now on Cybertron and fought the Decepticons to get the omega keys back. With the Autobots have the Forge of Solus Prime, Optimus Prime used it to make the ground bridge into a sapce and repaired the Star Saber. And when the Autobots have victory, Starscream came up with a clever plan by kidnapping Jack, Miko, and Ralph and use them as a bargaining chip. With no choice, the Autobots trade the omega keys to get the kids and than witness the Decepticons use the omega keys on the omega lock and rebuild a Cybertron building and than Megatron use the power on Earth. With that, Optimus Prime use the Star Saber to slice of the prime arm off of Megatron and made the ultimate sacrifice by using the Star Saber to destroy the omega lock and the Autobots take the kids back to Earth. But the worse isn't over, Megatron used the omega lock's powers to make his new palace that's fifteen miles away from the Autobots' base and made the attack on the Autobots. With no choice, Optimus Prime had order everyone to escape from the base as Agent Fowler and Wheeljack hold off some of the attackers. Agent Fowler is awesome of how he got an Insecticon and a new model jet Decepticon to crash each other and how Agent Fowler save June Darby from another jet Decepticon. Starscream blast down Wheeljack's ship which Starscream jokes about bring down a wrecker. With everybody went through the portal bridge, Optimus use the Star Saber to destroy the controls as Nemesis fires balst beam to destroy the Autobot base. Megatron and Starscream fly down to the wreckage to see what is left of the base. Knowing they got a new palace and have destroy the Autobot base, they are now ready to conquer Earth. There will be a third season of Transformers Prime coming out in Spring 2013 called Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters and this will have a new intro with Wheeljack and Smokescreen in it and will have the return of Airachnid and Shockwave. This new season will be the Autobots fighting and escaping from the Decepticons, which this will be 'The Hunt is on' and will be hardcore to the max.moreless
  • Uh, Optimus...?

    Why did Optimus need to stay behind and destroy the space bridge when the Decepticons were going to blow up the Autobot base anyway? His sacrifice seems completely useless...
  • harsh, sad, worst cliffhanger ever

    If your kids love this show then you may want to watch it with them, quite a nasty end to the season

    the auto bots do the classic if we can't have it no one can. so they blow up the omega lock talk about cop outs to move past the cybertron can be saved plot .

    and then megatron decides to take over earth after blowing up the autobots base and opitmus is potentially dead but the sparks from his arm say he at the very least still has power albiet leaking out.moreless
