    Cool. Nothing really new though. I like the little joke talk at the beginning.

    Maybe Robot Chicken or some other show could run with that first bit as it would be pretty funny.

    Who wants to start a pool betting that some mouth-breather reads only the first paragraph of that and starts ranting about how Bay's courtroom drama has raped his childhood?

    Hopefully they WILL bring these robots more to life- one major flaw in the first movie (mainly that the personalities WERE lame... then again they learned from the internet...)

    I have to mention the irony of the writer's name being "Patrick Lee", lol. (((unless I read something wrong?))

    I thought the same thing. I wonder if this Pat acctually wrote the article, or if someone did it for him.

    You know what? I would watch a transformers courtroom drama. Especially if Epps was a witness and shouted 'Bring it!' when called to the stand.

    Love this part:

    Now? They have been characters since 1984. Certainly people will remember Starscream for his treachery in both cartoon and comic materials, and not for his 'awesome' two lines in last year's movie.

    I love how these writers are so full of themselves... I'm not expecting anything better or more in-depth then Bayformers, but what I'm really worried about is Star Trek... how they'll mess that one up, well I cannot imagine, but I'd be surprised if they didn't. After all, they need to 'bring the characters to life' pretty much disregarding all previous materials.

    Looks like I'm not the only one who MIIIIGHT watch another 90 minute Bay-a-thon Explosiapaloosa and wonder,,, "would the courtroom drama have been a better way to go?"

    Actually I love Cullen's voice so much, I'd watch him play a prosecuter (or cop) in an episode of Law and Order.

    What is the irony of his name? Is that a name of a character in the Transformer world or something? Just curious...
