SPOILERS Don't read if you don't want to be spoiled about episode 8 and the recent clip that was shown. I don't like the direction TFP is taking. According to the Episode 8 description and the recent clip, M.E.C.H. obviously either takes control of Optimus or creates a clone of him to create havoc and destruction at a military base. Personally, I hope Optimus nor his clone kills humans. Some would like that, but for crying out loud, THIS IS A KIDS SHOW! It's one thing to show Cons harming humans or Bots and Cons harming evil faceless MECH soldiers. But for the most heroic Autobot of them all to kill innocent humans in uniform with faces? This will scar the kid viewers and could put a serious wedge between their parents and Hasbro. Plus it would just be STUPID considering the fact that, according to the Orion Pax episodes, it is mentioned that the Cons merely wounded human soldiers. Optimus Prime, the hero of the story, is allowed to kill humans but the evil Cons are only allowed to wound them? STUPID, STUPID, STUPID! I will lose all respect for the writers if Optimus wounds or kills a single human! And I'm sick of all the "U.S. government is good and everything outside of it is evil" crap! The movies had a disease of it and though there is not nearly as much in this show, it's getting on my nerves. I am afraid that they are going to do the tired and boring "U.S. government suspects the Autobots are bad and asks them to leave" plotline. Oh yeah, the good old, "the U.S. government is good and wonderful and if the bots have human enemies they must be evil outsider terrorists." Please! A New World Order was mentioned for crying out loud. I think this show should make the U.S. government evil. Ok, not make them evil, but have a shadow government that is evil, pulling the strings of the U.S. government, and has less then benevolent intentions for the bots. Have them try to capture the TFs themselves or try to kill them for purely selfish self-serving reasons that have nothing to do with protecting the citizens of Earth.
