While I would be nothing less than excited to hear of a fourth season to RID being in production, it's really seeming like this current season could be the last. The Gumball people are making their own all new TF cartoon in addition to a Rescue Bots sequel. I guess if Rescue Bots is continuing it would make sense for it to continue to tie into a sequel/spinoff to RID to complete another trilogy but there's no certainty there. I'm actually gonna be sad to see it go. I was a fairly early supporter of RID after it premiered in 2015, but I still had my own private reservations. But I've really come around to the show since then. The large and diverse cast of villains from wacky to serious to ancient evil to returning Prime Decepticons, with the Bee Team being the only thing standing between them and humanity, and perhaps the galaxy, is something I've actually come to enjoy. Having these new villains between seasons gives a better sense of time passing by as the Bee Team grows together and as individuals. For me, that's where the real heart of this show lies: The Bee Team. I thoroughly enjoyed watching the Bee Team come together through dumb luck and all work through all these nuanced little kinks in their teamwork across episodes and just naturally develop into this seasoned, highly-skilled team of friends. It feels very human, especially with Denny's and Russel's roles in the show. Almost like a family, in Bumblebee's own words. RID arguably does the "we're a family" vibe better than Prime because instead of just making sure to remind the audience by making sure to mention it they just kinda be one. One of the best teams of protagonists in the franchise. I'd place them 3rd behind the Beast Wars/Machines cast and the Animated cast. That's no nonsense. But at the same time this is still just a fun, light-hearted, early Saturday morning cartoon. I love that this cartoon is chock full of geeky robot shit for me but it's also just an earnestly well made and fun to watch with all the children in my very large family. Hasbro's public statements reflect that despite the originally small scope of the cartoon and toyline that both outperformed expectations, and that might be what I owe my gratitude for my large RID display taking up three whole shelves in my toy display. Hoping it's four soon! I really hope Shout! has the goodwill to release a full series DVD or BluRay set. I'd need it medically. I might be one of the more extreme cases, but I don't think I'm alone at all in my enjoyment of the show. I'm not saying it's perfect. It's repetitive at times, some episodes are better than others, but the production quality is high and quite frankly this is just the most "normal cartoon" Transformers show to come out thus far. Plus as a Unicron Trilogy kid I love the abundance of Minicons and new inclusion of "double deckers" So that's my ramble. I'd really love to hear everyone's own thoughts looking back now that the end is nigh on Robots in Disguise.
