I some how stumbled upon a clip of Rodimus in Energon and was curious how he was portrayed in the series. I found the episode Rodimus: Friend or Foe. I didn't intend to watch it completely but ended up doing so. I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't awful. I didn't have to force myself to watch it. I have no desire to watch any more episodes, but at least this one wasn't awful. I enjoyed seeing Rodimus presented in a competent and revered light. Kicker wasn't as annoying as I expected. I even got a kick out of seeing a Quintesan. So yeah, I have no desire to watch any more. I'll keep this positive reaction with the knowledge that it would likely be spoiled if repeated. I'm still very glad those shows are long dead though. Animated and Prime are SOOOO much better.
