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 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:

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

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

Episode 66: Transformers The Movie Part 1 of 2

We’re finally back!

The long hiatus is over and we’re back with the much-anticipated animated movie. This week we’re doing our audio commentary track for the first half of the film, along with an intro and outro (including our weekly segments). You can listen to it here:

We had a blast recording this episode, and you can probably tell by how long the gifs are this week. Adam’s Insane Moment was the battle between Soundwave and Blaster’s minions, with a dash of Perceptor for good measure:

Kevin’s Insane Moment was the Dinobots going all out against Devastator (how crazy is it that Adam passed on the Dinobots moment!):

Join us next week for Part 2, and then we’ll release just the full commentary the week after. And if you haven’t already, subscribe to the show!

Japan Special: Scramble City with the Hosts of Transmissions

It’s a very special episode this week as we review Scramble City, the Japanese episode intended to bridge Season 2 and the animated movie. On the show this week we are excited to be joined by three of the four hosts of the Transmissions Podcast , Darryl, Charles, and Jeremy. Our conversation over Skype might not be the best audio quality we’ve ever had, but the content should make up for it since these guys know WAY more about the Transformers than we do!

Listen to it here:

Since the episode is in Japanese, don’t expect audio clips for the dialogue this week, but get ready for five whole insane moments!

First, Darryl really enjoyed when Metroplex blasted the Decepticon Combiners with a huge shot from his gun:

65-1 Metroplex Fires

Then Charles wanted us to get into the surprise appearance of Trypticon at the end of the episode:

65-1 Trypticon Appears

Then Jeremy pointed out that Wild Rider (the Decepticon Combaticon) joining Superion as his leg was pretty nuts:

65-1 Wild Rider Slips In

Adam just wanted to have a gif of the big Superion transformation sequence:

65-1 Form Superion

And finally Kevin loved the bit where Scramble Power was on full display:

65-1 Scramble Power

Thanks again to the Transmissions guys! Be sure to check out their podcast, and we hope to be back in two weeks with the first half of our audio commentary for the animated movie!

Episode 65: B.O.T.

Is this the worst episode yet? Maybe! A robot is created and then nonsense happens. Listen to it here:

Adam’s Most Insane Moment was when there was a simulation of Decepticons shooting the moon out of orbit:

65 Orbit Disruptor

And Kevin’s Insane Moment was when a few Deccepticons got shot into the air:

65 Orbit Disruptor Goes Nuts

Join us next week for a very special episode of Scramble City featuring the hosts of Transmissions!

Episode 63: The Revenge of Bruticus

Well, it’s all about Starscream this week as he tries his hand at yet another takeover. Spoiler alert: it doesn’t work. (Duh) You can listen to it here:

Download it here: Episode 63 The Revenge of Bruticus

After last week’s embarrassing lack of Insane Moments we think we killed it this week. First of all, we had a still shot of Shockwave RIDING ON STARSCREAM:

63 Shockwave Rides Starscream

Then Adam’s Insane Moment was when Bruticus fired Shockwave out into space:

63 Bruticus Shoots Shockwave Into Space

And then Kevin’s Insane Moment continued on from that when Shockwave crashed into Starscream and… grabbed his nose?

63 Shockwave Crashes Into Starscream

Next week we’ll be revealing some of our big plans for the weeks leading up to the movie so see you then!

Episode 62: Starscream’s Brigade

Starscream tries, once again, to take over as leader of the Decepticons with predictable results. On the other hand, say hello to the Combaticons!

You can listen to it here:

As for Insane Moments… Well, there aren’t any this week. While there was some wild stuff in the episode, none of it really rose to the level for either of us that the Insane Moments have been lately. So, rather than a gif of just whatever, we skipped them this week. Hopefully there will be something truly crazy next week. See you then!
