    The Sideswipe and Strongarm complaint was always stupid, their arguing was always clearly a sibling button-pushing things after their first few episodes together, she hasn't thought of him as a worthless crook and he hasn't written her out as robot satan for seasons now. It's just their character dynamic, they conflict because they are different and there is no "lesson" for "friends like pushing each other's button".

    Oh and also, Windblade came to Earth for a certain goal and though she didn't get to fully achieve it, she was pretty useful.

    1) Its not just me. Plenty of people have had these complaints.
    2) Hate the movies? You must be new here. Ask Autobot Burnout, I have defended the movies to death before.

    Can you take a look at my analysis of every RID episode's lesson and how each one is different each time. I think you'd find it interesting. Also, that doesn't mean she is useless, it means she took a different path than intended.

    1) I did. Most of everything after season 1 comes down to: "Strongarm, let lose", "Sideswipe, grow up", and "Grimlock, don't be a clutz". And even if there is something more to be learned, its always watered down by the villain of the week. They rarely, if at all, break out of their archetypes.
    2) And would that not be anymore obvious if they actually tried doing something with that? Like, having her re-think her purpose in life instead of just tagging along and doing very little? Like, I would like an arc where she tries to figure herself out! Cause after season 1, she has felt more like an after-thought.

    Maybe but there's many aspects to that and they're explored here. Also Grimlock being a clutz isn't why most of his lessons happen. He has many flaws as a Dinobot and each Grim focus episode explores one and how he should accept it. Sideswipe is kind of a jerk sometimes and many different aspects make him this way and each Swipe focus episode explores one of those factors and fixes them. Strongarm is a by the book cadet and thus many flaws trying to follow rules yet save the day. Mamy aspects cause this and each one is explored in an Sa focus episode. Bee has always followed rules and is now forced into a situation where he must lead. Many troubles are faced by him to become a good leader and each one is explored in a BB episode. Drift is trying to teach but is too strict due to his past. Just like many, he has a lot of areas to improve in and each is focused on in one of his episodes. His students have a lot to learn, but want their teacher to have faith in them. Their focus episodes go into their exploits in trying to prove their worth.

    Season 1 was great.
    Starscream's arc was great.
    Soundwave's return was great.
    Darren Criss, the voice of Sideswipe, is one of my celebrity crushes, so having him on Transformers is amazing.
    Windblade's upgrade sequence is pretty.
    I am looking forward to Soundwave's return and the whole Cyclonus-Council thing.

    Just because the show is an overall dissapointment doesn't mean it doesn't have a few hidden gems.
