Great idea using the old Scraplets from the marvel days, the kids weren't annoying either, and Bulkhead screams like a little girl! I was worried it was going to be a "Rafe feels left out" episode the way it started, but thankfully it didn't lean that way.
Now I can't wait knowing that Wheeljack is coming! They better not kill him!
Quite liked that episode. Thought Wheeljack was pretty awesome, although he'd probably be better if it was Drift instead of him. Wish we could have seen Makeshift's real form.
I'm starting to get a little annoyed that they keep introducing characters, just to have them written out one way or another, though it does look like Wheeljack will probably return in a later episode.
I agree. This is makes 2 out of 3 new episodes to intro and then write out new characters that were introduced. At least Wheeljack can come back, but still, in a real situation like the 'bots are in, Optimus wouldn't have given Wheeljack the option of leaving, and if Wheeljack was really interested in fighting the good fight, why would he just carelessly leave just for the sake of leaving. They could have given him more of a reason, like finding more Autobots it bring back for the cause or something. I hope that for the next several episodes we can go without them introducing characters, and just focus on the ones they've already got.
So, what to say about this episode, 'Convoy'. It was pretty much a filler episode. Not the strongest episode, but not the weakest either. Can already tell that at some point Miko and Jack will fall for each other....... One can hope otherwise.
So far the best episode has probably been 'Scrapheap'.
Just watched Convoy. Not too bad, good seeing humans as proper bad guys. Definately just a filler episode though. Hated the fact they should what the Autobots did in the tunnel, dispite showing Bumblebee knocking on the train door, making it painfully obvious what they did. Had they not shown that bit, just shown the Autobots entering, driving along, then exiting the tunnel, the little flashback bit wouldn't have been too bad.
I really enjoyed that one! But then again I'm a sucker for chase scenes. As for showing Bumblebee on that bit, it's a case of trying to intrigue the people watching about what he could be doing. I hate it when stories make something happen then just insert a random flashback with no inclination in what was already shown. So I liked that they did that. Makes it seem like they actualy thought about it instead of placing things randomly. :3
The soldier inside the train and all the mentions of "Phase 2" showed that they didn't do it randomly though. When Bumblebee knocked on the door of the train, pretty much anyone and everyone watching would have realised that they were going to be putting the DINGUS on the train.
That's another thing that got at me, DINGUS. I see the writers are adding silly acronyms again, like the FARTS in Animated ¬_¬
At least Bumblebee didn't beep and squeak his way through this episode, that is really starting to annoy me. Does anyone remember a time when he spoke normally? Because I'm struggling to.
Hoist: Hmm, I'm guessing nothing to do with Beast Wars or Armada, so either a sequel based in or around the first renegade rp trilogy or War For Cybertron? I'm guessing War For Cybertron!
