Just finished watching TransWarped, and although I had previously caught a few episodes of Animated that I enjoyed, (most notably the Wreck-Gar one,) Animated has been a bit hit-or-miss for me so far. But TransWarped has cemented in my mind the idea that the writers really have a deep appreciation of the TF mythology and a lot of good ideas about how to make ensemble casts work. All the fantastic G1 nods, and a lot of things that I would consider to be even BETTER than G1, make this stand out as one of the best TF series of all time. Particularly in the Rodimus Prime scene, which I wish had been about three hours longer, we saw: Ironhide actually having an IRON HIDE power which seems to be an invulnerable skin that grows over him ala the X-Men's Colossus, a Hot Shot who SHOOTS FLAMES, (How could we have missed that? It's so obvious! DUH!) and a Blackout who shorts out electrical devices. Simple stuff like this that makes a character's identity and personality one and the same. Between great writing like this and the returns of the original voice actors like Corey Burton for Shockwave, John Moschitta for Blurr and Judd Nelson as Rodimus really satisfied my dedicated Geewunner self. I'll be watching the rest of the season with great expectations. Kudos to everyone involved.
