Best episode so far in my opinion.

I really like the characterization of Miko, Ratchet, Megatron, and Bulkhead on this one.

Miko's a little annoying, but Bulkhead's finally showin' his gentle giant side icon-fire.gif
Transformers is a brand that really has something for everyone. We are a darn lucky fandom.

Soundwave's drone was a bit weird. I doubt if it is based on any of the cassettes.

Reminded me slightly of Rat Bat, only because it had pointy wings like a bat. It was more like a jet drone in behavior.

After they kill the Scalpel-like Dark Energon creation from the last episode, Optimus figures out that Megatron is planning on using Dark Energon to create a new army. He takes Ratchet with him to some valley where a huge battle between Transformers had happened during the late stage of the war when each side had started hiding their energon reserves on different planets (hence why Earth is seeded with energon). The other Autobots are supposed to stay at the base but Arcee ditches the kids and takes Bumblebee with her to go on patrol, leaving Bulkhead in charge. Agent Fowler shows up and finds out about the kids, and when he heads off to report back to the Pentagon, Laserbeak (or something, it's a bird-like drone sent out by Soundwave) captures him and brings him back to the Nemesis, where Starscream tortures him to get information about where the Autobots' base is (we don't see if he gave up any information, but he was sass-talking Starscream before the torture happened). Bulkhead goes off to save Fowler through the ground bridge and Miko jumps through it with him, so he has to protect her during a battle with the Eradicons outside the parked Nemesis. Bulkhead contacts Arcee and Bumblebee for backup, but Jack and Raf go through the ground bridge to find Bulkhead and Miko before Arcee and Bumblebee can contact them back at the base to use the ground bridge to get to Bulkhead, so they're stranded out in the middle of nowhere. Meanwhile, Megatron shows up in that valley Optimus and Ratchet are in and uses Dark Energon to resurrect a zombie army.

Wait, The drone transformed from Soundwave's chest armor. Does that mean he's a Breastforce warrior?

Also, I'm liking Fowler more than I thought I would. Especially his Dynamic with Starscream.

Yeah, but some of us who live outside of the U.S. might be looking for a YouTube link...

Miko is both brain-damaged and amusing. I feel guilty about that.

"What can I say? Beneath my cocksure exterior I have terribly low self-esteem."

"Yes, but beneath that low self-esteem you really do think you're better than everyone else."

"Fair point."

Another average episode. The best so far but the show still hasn't "grabbed" me yet.

What I do love is FINALLY treating the human hangers on as a nuisance. Miko is growing on me. Jack's disinterest is also warming. Still not liking Raf, a precocious 12 year old hacking into the NSA is just too much.

Best episode so far, lots of great character moments. Already like it much better than Animated.

I'm starting to see why people hate human children in Transformers. Miko needs to die slowly and horribly, or better yet, she needs to get killed and then zapped with dark energon so the Autobots are forced to kill her again thus turning her whole selfish, attention whoring, sugar-high adoration of them into a dark, twisted irony that would make exactly ONE redeeming factor for her existence in these episodes.

... Y'know, I think I don't like her very much.

Other than the that, a good episode. Nice to see Fowler pushing Starscreams buttons and having more to do than just show up and yell at the Autobots. It's also good to see Starscream doing things while Megatron is out and that he has something that resembles an actual plan other than just waiting around till Megatron looses his voice and then declaring himself leader. I'm also digging the story they're setting up, with the energon seeding and the interplanetary wars that came before. Good to see the tradition of building on previous series continuity is still in effect. That's probably one of the greatest strengths of the franchise, that it can build on what has come before, rather than trying to completely wipe the slate clean every time.

I'm somewhat distressed by Soundwave still having no voice, I mean they have freaking Frank Welker right there, why not just let him do the voice? Meh, I guess both sides have to have a mute character or something.

Also, someone needs to edit 'Thriller' over the scene with the zombies rising.

At one point I almost thought he was speaking, but it turned out he was just replaying something Megatron said.
I wonder why I thought that....
