    This ep was on the Hub tonight, and I watched it slightly drunk. Here are some things I enjoyed:

    Seeing Buzzsaw. Not enough Buzzsaw in the cartoon.

    A Grimlock/ Megatron fight.

    Optimus Prime watching Optimus Prime prevent the Washington Monument from falling.

    And finally, Megatron at the Lincoln Memorial.

    Are you sure you weren't just a little overcharged?

    With the exception of Optimus' twin brother, I feel that this episode had really great animation. Somebody needs to give us tiny versions of the sub-atlanticans and their vehicles.

    You forgot the scene where somehow ALL FIVE Dinobots fit in Optimus Prime’s trailer.
    :lolol

    It's probably because I had the episode on tape as a child, but I actually consider it to be one of the better season two episodes.

    Hm... Good episodes of season two IMO are:

    Dinobot Island Part 1
    Dinobot Island Part 2
    Desertion of the Dinobots Part 1
    Desertion of the Dinobots Part 2
    The Key to Vector Sigma Part 1
    The Key to Vector Sigma Part 2
    Megatron's Master Plan Part 1
    Megatron's Master Plan Part 2
    Starscream's Brigade
    The Revenge of Bruticus

    I don't think Atlantis Arise comes close to the quality of those episodes.

    Absolutely. With the exception of it being an admittedly pretty lame concept & plot, the animation itself is some of the best of the entire series. They really went to town with the lighting, shadowing & highlights on this one.

    Those are good episodes. But I think that the Atlantis episode had some of the better animation from the second season. And I thought that it was one of the more interesting stories as well.

    I agree. Those were some of the better season two episodes.

    Again, I agree

    If only the whole series had the animation quality of the movie, or even the bumpers.
    Batman had the same issue- if you ever see the short made to introduce Batman the animated series you see how amazing it could have been, and in my mind it was already of a high quality. I loved that all of the backgrounds were painted o a black base, gave them such deep darks.
    But thats straying from topic. Atlantis did have some really nice cels.
