A thread for whatever, I mean. Basically I'm re-watching Prime hoping it won't be so... eeehh, and want to post my musing. Join in if you want I guess.
is still one of the stronger series openers. Usually these things are weirdly clunky or just distractingly different, but this one's actually pretty solid. Still, there are a few apparent plot threads that never really went anywhere. Big thing I noticed is the rather mature look at the violence; Raf gets seriously overwhelmed by it, Jack grimly realizes robots can die, while Miko enjoys it, seemingly unable to see it as violence... which could have been really interesting if it carried over to Bulkhead gets badly injured way down the line.
Dunno if the intent was there (it obviously doesn't carry forward), but the Decepticons kinda had a bit of a shadow government feel to them, what with the Vehicons being unmarked cars and Soundwave being a drone.
Starscream and Ratchet -- wow! I had forgotten just how good they were in this! And I got Knock Out to look forward to, too.
And I do appreciate how the show feels Movieverse-ish but better, even if it's maybe trying too hard at being "epic."
"Humans go... squish", Megatron casually asking Starscream to kill himself (for the cause!), Bulkhead totally willing to let Fowler get captured and killed by the Decepticons.
This scene really grabs me for some reason. I mean, a deranged warlord's bringing and entire planet's worth of zombies to conquer Earth, but seeing the two desperately trying to grab each other's hands before everything blows up is kinda oddly sympathetic.
Random design observation: does Starscream's shoulder ever snag with the gaps in his chest?
