    A lot of us love the new show. And a NEW episode will be airing on CN the Saturday morning we are at the convention 10:30 assuming Cincinati is on Eastern time 9:30 if it's on Central time. It will the the Wreck-Gar episode if CN can be trusted to go by the episode guide.

    I say we take over the TV in the hotel bar or lounge or where ever, whichever hotel the main convention is also at (Hyatt?), and watch it together. Of course I'll set the VCR back home but, I can't think of anything much cooler than watching a new episode of Transformers actually at a Transformers covention with fellow fans.:dj 

    Who's with me!

    It might even be a nice way to give and Hasbro guys at the show some feedback about when we like and dislike about Animated. Free market research?;)  Maybe the voice actors might even want to join us in watching it. How cool would that be?

    Not to be a downer, but I think the last new episode of Animated is airing this Saturday (before the seemingly obligatory reruns). Otherwise it could be a lot of fun to watch animated with a big group of TF fans.

    *Edit*
    I take that back, according to the showtimes thread in the Animated forum:

    April 26th - Episode 18 - The Return of the Headmaster - 10:30 AM Eastern/Pacific (NEW EPISODE)

    If that holds true a lot of people will be flocking to the torrent sites to download it after the con is over.

    If there's a TV in the lobby or something I SO support this.

    In fact I bet if we didn't do it, someone else would.

    I'm SO up for this. I'll be bringing my Animated toys with me (apart from anything else, I want to get David Laye & Bumper Robinson to sign Prime 7 Bumblebee!).

    I'm down for watching it. Don't they usually have a media room at Botcon?

    If the airing conflicts with a major panel, I'll download the episode that night (or make someone else download it, using my mancharm) for group-viewing later.

    Dude just come over. :D  One Botcon, I was at a walking-distance hotel but took advantage of the connected hotel's happy hour every night regardless since they assumed everyone with a badge was a guest.

    Yeah, as long as it doesn't conflict with a good pannel I really want to do this, and like Vangelus said if it does conflict we can download and watch it later so just come on over to the Hyatt and join us.

    Well if we don't do that, we could also do a drunken commentary track.

    I definitely support this idea.

    HOWEVER, hasn't the "Hasbro Product Unveiling" Panel often been around 10 or 11AM on Saturday?
