Cool review. Who does your preview images?

October 22, 2011 at 3:52 PM

This is one of my favorite pieces that you've done. Hit a lot of notes (... sorry.) and had a great closing punchline.

Excellent! These episodes juwst keep getting better and better. XD

Loved it. You covered this cartoon very well and still did not set up a reason for hate bombs to be sent your way.

I am very glad a true fan reviewed this cartoon and the wait for G1 to be reviewed in this show was very much worth it.

Not bad at all.
Truth is TJ, i'm surprised you didn't look at 'B.O.T.' n this, now THATS a horrid episode of G1 Transformers.

awesome job loved it

October 22, 2011 at 5:18 PM

So, I'm curious. Will the not released on American TV Transformers shows (Headmasters, Masterforce, Victory, Beast Wars II, Beast Wars Neo) also be reviewed at some point down the line?

Cool review. Nothing like having to remember this episode again. I think it'd be worse if Soundwave played Friday. And you did know that Blaster basically reached down at Soundwave's crotch, right?

October 22, 2011 at 6:34 PM

Just before you told us, I called it... One of the worst episodes...

I must have blocked it from my mind. I didn't even remember half the s***** errors in that thing! The only thing good about it was Galvatron's threat to Allegra!

October 22, 2011 at 6:40 PM

wow just wow how did they ruin this episode so badly
but is nice to see huffer alive

TJ, I have one question you forgot to mention; you know in some shows or comics they may replace one character with another that is almost the same except with a few differences? I've debating with my friends that, despite the fact that Ultra Magnus turned into a truck, seemingly lead more missions into the war zones than Rodimus, Galvatron appearing to hate just as much, if not more so than Rodimus Prime - that he was not a kinda-sorta replacement for Optimus Prime.... was he(thinking of why the truck cab turned into a white Optimus from my G-1 Magnus......)?

Gah, Carnage in C-Minor. My brain has effectively blocked out this episode. It's the most concentrated example of everything wrong with the G1 show.

Great job, TJ. I'm among the few who defend Season 3 as well and also think that the good far outweighs the bad. Looking forward to another ten episodes!

Well, there was the episode where the Decepticons found "proof" that they were the good guys. Maybe that proof was actually real, and the footage Spike found of Optimus being Starscream in a costume was photoshopped, and the Autobots really are evil! Or, I'm high. Your call.

October 23, 2011 at 9:04 AM

trence5: More likely a marketing call. Magnus was the more expensive toy, so they pushed him as the field commander that season while Rodimus hung back more often. Story-wise it made sense, he had the experience that Rodimus lacked even as the chosen one, but beyond that they just wanted the bigger toy sold.

Hey, besides Sonny Straight/Steve Blum, Cullen WAS the voice of Toonami.

October 23, 2011 at 4:31 PM

Carnage is C Minor? Whoa.

Vanilla Ice? I'd have gone with Aqua's Barbie Girl myself, but... *shrug*

Next Mutation maybe next? Interesting. I wonder if Venus would have worked better had she debuted in a cartoon rather that Live Action.

October 23, 2011 at 6:47 PM

I bet this episode even pissed off Wheelie...

October 23, 2011 at 8:36 PM

"I wonder if Venus would have worked better had she debuted in a cartoon rather that Live Action. "

The token female character? Nah, she'd go as well as a black Autob-- awwwwww.

Wow what a mess of a show.. Strange that I have the Rhino Season 3 Boxed Set and watched it several times and do not remember this episode at all. Perhaps it was so bad my DVD player automatically skipped it, or was not included in my box set? Or my mind was so traumatized it has repressed all memories of... wait where am I?

October 27, 2011 at 12:51 AM

Ya hit the nail on the head when it comes to the animation errors. You have to take the bad with the good. Just think, if Transformers wasn't so popular the work wouldn't have been rushed.

October 28, 2011 at 4:39 AM

he pressed a button on soundwaves crotch to erase the tapes

October 28, 2011 at 11:05 AM

worst episode ever

not you tj

October 29, 2011 at 8:23 AM


What about B.O.T?

October 30, 2011 at 1:25 PM

Excellent review, but I must disagree with you about season three being the one to introduce connected storylines. Season one had some surprisingly heavy continuity between episodes, especially the first six episodes. But other than that, I think you nailed it.

October 31, 2011 at 3:16 PM

Good review. I knew this episode proficised the rise of Bayformers. Oh and Peter Cullen did some work doing voice overs for Toonami along side Steve bloom

November 6, 2011 at 6:12 PM

If the Michael Bay-esk character dropped the chick wouldn't they BOTH get crushed by Blaster and Soundwave? Just a loop-hole I thought of.

Great review TJ. Being into animation, I have talk to people who worked on the show. The main problem the animators had was animating the robots on this show. Because all the robots are mostsly made of cubes. Hope that explains half the animation problems on Transformers G1.

December 4, 2011 at 10:52 AM

a note, and I didnt read through all the above comments, The animation gets bad at certain scenes because of random lack of budget and use a different animation house. You can see this in other scenes like the clip you show towards the beginning where they all have very hard shadows, and they have a lot of extreme perspective shots. Big fan of your show though, especially your toy collection.

December 27, 2011 at 1:37 PM

OMG you went there and went for tthe worst episode for errors to boot. i applaud you.

February 11, 2012 at 2:42 PM

April 22, 2012 at 11:01 AM
