Episode 75: Dark Awakening

The cartoon takes us to some pretty dark places this week, and we happily follow those threads to their conclusions. You can listen to it here:

Both of our Most Insane Moments involved the Dinobots this week! Kevin’s was when Sludge saved Snarl’s life by pushing him out of the way:

Adam picked the moment when Grimlock became furious, but it kind of looked like he was just dancing:

We’re now officially three fourths of the way through the original show, so join us next time as we start the home stretch!

Episode 74: Chaos

The show bounces back after last episode’s lackluster showing with a story that centers on the Autobot Kup. You can listen here:

Any episode where Grimlock puts his arms on someone’s shoulders and shakes them is all right by me:

74-grimlock-grabs-kups-shoulders

As for Insane Moments, Adam really enjoyed Kup dropping these keys and abandoning these prisoners:

74-kupp-abandons-prisoners

Kevin’s Insane Moment was Predaking producing a lightsaber and slicing off this rock:

Next episode has a title that we are very interested in, so let’s hope it’s a great one! See you then!

Episode 73: The Killing Jar

It’s our first episode of Season 3 that ISN’T The Five Faces of Darkness and boy was it… not great. You can listen to it here:

Sure, there was some interesting stuff. Like when they went to an alternate reality that made their colors different:

And of course we got our Insane Moments. Adam picked the scene in which Ultra Magnus shorts out some prison cell bars in spectacular fashion:

And Kevin enjoyed Ultra Magnus (again?) smashing the cockpit of an escape pod and withdrawing the evil Quintesson from within:

So yeah, some things to like even in a mediocre episode with only TWO TRANSFORMATIONS! That’s real! It’s called TRANSFORMERS guys!

Anyhow, see you in 2 weeks!

Episode 72: The Five Faces of Darkness Part 5

We’re a little late with this episode but welcome to 2017! This will almost surely be the year we finish the original Transformers cartoon, so buckle up, because it looks to be a crazy finale. You can listen to the episode here:

Adam’s Most Insane Moment was when Trypticon just demolished some Autobots easily:

And Kevin’s Most Insane Moment was when Metroplex threw Trypticon an unbelievably long distance:

We’ll see you in 2 weeks for the first episode of Season 3 that ISN’T part of The Five Faces of Darkness!

Episode 71: The Five Faces of Darkness Part 4

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! It’s basically a Christmas miracle that Kevin got the episode finished this weekend! You can listen to it here:

We are loving this series and the history it reveals this week. Kevin’s Most Insane Moment involved Galvatron smacking the Quintesson, Deliberata, aside:

71-galvatron-smacks-deliberata-aside

And Adam’s Most Insane Moment was when Galvatron lost it and destroyed the “planet” Goo:

71-galvatron-blows-up-goo

We’ll be back in 2 weeks (in the new year!) with the conclusion!

Episode 70: The Five Faces of Darkness Part 3

We start to really get into some interesting stuff this episode and it even has a new animated opening, which is pretty cool. You can listen here:

Kevin Most Insane Moment was just Galvatron transforming, because what is up with his gun? He throws it away and then grows a new one?

70-galvatron-transforms

But Adam’s Most Insane Moment might take the cake. Galvatron fires into a storm on Jupiter (or maybe one of its moons?) and… this happens:

70-galvatron-blows-up-the-storm

Stick around to the end to hear us thank some fans and give a couple of shout outs.

And we’re almost definitely moving to a bi-weekly schedule for a bit. Hope everyone will stick with us until we can get back on a truly weekly schedule. Thanks!

Episode 69: The Five Faces of Darkness Part 2

Season 3 continues with an episode we enjoyed considerably more than the first part. And are some deep secrets being hinted at this week? Interesting… Listen to it here:

Download it here: Episode 69 The Five Faces of Darkness Part 2

Adam’s Most Insane Moment was Grimlock actually eating someone’s gun:

69-grimlock-eats-a-gun

And Kevin’s happened immediately after that and it was Rodimus Prime getting knocked about by the Decepticon’s gun’s butts:

See you next week for Part 3!
