    I was watching RID the other day, and started to find some of the episodes were actually a little bity entertaining, and while I gereraly hated the series as a whole, I've fallen in love with the Predacons. They're still comedy relief, but atleast they actually get stuff done (even if they lose in the end). And they actually have less anime-moments then the Autobots do. I owned many RID toys (actually just Autobots, which are all broken now :cry ) and always wanted the Predacons. (never owned Sky-byte or the trio) Though I generaly never watched the show. (just saw episode one and thought it was stupid compared to BW) But skipping that I now think it's not half bad.

    So my question is, just like the title, what is your favorite episodes of RID? Also, what do you like most about RID? And what are your opinions on the Predacons? Or use this as a RID appreciation thread.:lol 


    Mine are the Fist test, and (Of course) Sky-byte saves the day! I basicaly enjoy anything with prolonged appearences of the Predacons. I'm going to watch more of the series later. What other episodes past Sky-byte saves the day are Predacon heavy?

    Just voicing my newfound intrests.

    P.S.

    I love when Sky-byte, Gas Skunk, Slapper and Darkscream hang around in beast mode. :D  They're so cute!

    bah after i finished watching BW there's nothing left to watch - I've watched all G1 episodes a couple of times, RiD SUCKS!, Armada - well kinda like RiD, too many questions left un-answered and illogical storyline. Energon and Galaxy Force i can't bear to watch as the animation is worse than the first episodes of BW which were aired almost 10 years before >< ... plus i cant stand the Japanese way of view on the transformers - THEY ARE NOT SAMURAIES YOU CRAZY PPL =P

    The Pred trio were awesome as far as comedy villains go. One of my favourite scenes with them is from the finale.

    I can't think of any Pred-heavy episodes right now, though. You might want to watch the run of episodes starting from 24, Ultra Magnus' introduction, through to the end as the series hits its stride with that second section.

    I loved Sky-Bytes haiku's and Side Burn's story about being a little red trike when he was a young bot.

    I can't think of any particular favorite episodes, but I would like to brag that I have every figure of a character represented on the show except for Skid-Z and Tow-Line. GO ME!

    I just really loved this show. I don't know why either... I, for some reason, didn't watch any Beast Machines when it was on TV so I guess R.I.D kind of re-introduced me to Transformers after Beast Wars. It was just a fun show and the toys were surprisingly show-accurate (which is always a big plus in my book!).

    I'm also proud to say that I recorded the show on tape from day 1 so I even have the first two episodes (the first episode being one where Megatron crashes through a tower in Hand Mode and the second one dealing with cars that had bombs in them) which aired before the 9-11 attacks. I would've loved to seen the episodes that they were too butt-headed to air after the 9-11 attacks... which is why I think this show really deserves a Complete (THAT MEANS UNCUT! :stick:  :banghead:  :mad  ) Series DVD release.

    I have most of the episodes on tape besides the un-aired ones and I lost the last few 'cause my stupid VCR ate the tape that had those episodes on it. I'm working on converting the precious ones I do have to DVD at the moment.

    HOORAY FOR R.I.D (btw, the anniversary of R.I.D is coming up... September 7th or 8th I believe)

    Gah! I forgot to mention one of my all-time favorite moments:

    It was in the second episode I believe... the Pred Trio had found some batteries and they came back and they were like "Hey Megatron we found some energy. It's all in little cases called 'batteries' and we got THOUSANDS OF THEM!" as they dump them all out onto the floor.

    Absolutely hilarious!

    The best was When Sideburn talk about his fetish for red sports cars.

    The red Trike or a Red 50's Town Car.Yeah Right and then after you thought her learned his lesson,a Red car comes.HEEEEEEEEy BABEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :lol 

    I also like the seen when The Pred Trio brought Batteries back to the base and Megatron got pissed off.I soo want Megatron.

    When Prowl gets washed and Towline toys him away! getting towed away!

    I liked when Sky Byte wrote Haiku while recourperating.

    When Sky-Byte swims away in the ocean in the last episode.

    Damnit i want Megatron,Prowl,Sideburn,Runation,Scourge,X-Brawn and Skids-Z.

    Oh I almost forgot my all-time favorite moment: after setting down the tower in "Sky-byte saves the day", when Skybyte transforms and lays down on the ground, Gas skunk points out that Sky-byte can now scratch himself, so he starts rolling and wiggling around on the ground! :lol  I laughed for ten minutes!

    See sig. The one where movor/shuttler goes up and tries to take advantage of the fact that he's in orbit. Pure hilarity ensues.
