When Darkness Rising first hit everyone was talking about how Cliff's death showed this show was not going to be your usual kids' show and would have real consequences, but this latest episode(Con Job) got me thinking about how new characters/ideas get introduced into Prime and then removed in the same episode leaving us with the same status quo after every episode. I am finding this a disturbing trend as it's already getting old and we're only 3 eps into the regular season and there is no sign of anything resembling a main story arc. Prime looks to be embracing a "monster of the week" format rather than any kind of real attempt at telling a continuing story. Now there are plenty of episodic shows that are enjoyable enough, so I'm not saying they couldn't carry on in this manner and make something entertaining, but the TF universe has so much more depth to offer and it would be a shame if it is not exploited. In all probability this is just a further extension of my own desire to see TF Prime rise above the "cartoon for kids" level of storytelling/attention to detail. But I won't apologize for being an adult fan who wants a more intelligent treatment of the material than the usual kids' show offers. It is totally possible for them to take this show to a level that can offer adults layers of complexity, while still entertaining kids and selling toys.
