    I just watch it, and, as a sci fi fan, I could not help but notice all of the references to alien invasion and other sci fi movies. The references I caught included:
    Men in Black: A woman claims that he husband, Edgar, is an alien cockroach.
    Close Encounters of the Third Kind: The chief punches in a 5 tone password to open a door. Later the scene with the lights coming back on is similar to a scene in the movie.
    E.T.: Blades talks about an alien looking for a phone.
    Alien: Blades talks about facehuggers and chestbursters.
    Predator: Chase talks about Dutch using mud to hide.
    Signs: A farmer thinks aliens are in his cornfield.
    Transfromers: G1: Aliens stealing energy.

    I like how someone tried to have an RB upload thread, and it gets locked, but the Prime forums get to have one stickied all the time. Why does trying to watch Rescue Bots have to be such a damn chore?

    There's actually a decent size amount of people who like the show, if you look at the discussion threads. Tho I noticed no one made a discussion thread for this ep yet (Sol Fury did it last time, but I guess he forgot this time)

    I thought about a discussion thread, but I thought a mod would do it.

    According to TV Guide's site, the latest episode is repeated Sunday at 9:30am, next Friday at 2pm, and next Saturday after the next episode. Maybe the usual guy will have his cable back and be able to catch one of the repeats.
