    Sorry for the double post, but the above post didn't like putting in anything besides the youtube box, for some reason...

    ...

    MaxLinden and I have been playing around with this idea for a while now, and it's finally coming to fruition. After all, Transformers Energon is easily the worst Transformers cartoon of all time, so an abridged series was inevitable.

    Expect to see the full episode one premiere in a week or so. In the meantime, watch this Youtube account for more info:

    lol, that's certainly very interesting. I've always had a dislike for TFE and now I'm glad someone is gonna pay it out. Time to see your stuff, Max! Go for it!

    Ha! Someone should do Cybertron Abridged! :D

    At least in Cybertron, the people making it actually seemed to have some idea what was going on.

    While I like the idea...there's getting to be too many "abridged" series online. It was fine when it was just Yu-Gi-Oh! and Dragonball Z, but to be honest, when I saw Transformers G1 Abridged (there's two versions, right?), I pretty much realized that the abridged meme got old really quick.

    I think abridged actually owrks better on more recent shows, like energon where the pop culture references seem less out of place.
    G1 is just a little old and makes it hard to decide what to put in it. mostly becuase 80s jokes aren't funny anymore. XD

    If your thinking of the Amazing Adventures of the transformers that is just a parody series at this point..
    But I see what your saying.... There are tons of abridged series.

    We're gonna try to do as much "original" stuff as possible with this series, and try to avoid some of the more worn-out memes. There'll be no screwing the rules here, folks.

    Besides, it's Energon, right? That thing's rife with material for satire.

    I just hope it's not just pointing out the faults of the series in a glaring way, but is a proper parody of it. There's so many bad Abridged series that just point out what's "pointless" or "crappy" without properly making fun of it and making it entertaining.

    You make an excellent point. We're doing our best to make this something unique and fun for all involved. I hope you end up enjoying it as much as we're enjoying making it.

    Was Towline even IN Energon? I don't remember spotting him, but I do remember his toy being cool. Perhaps we can randomly paste him into the background or something.

    For anyone wondering, here's where we're at currently:

    -Scripting for episode one is complete (we collaborated on the script).
    -Casting for up through Episode 7 is complete. Any future roles that we decide we can't do will be made available here first.
    -Voices are almost all in.
    -Max is working on the editing for what we've got so far.

    I believe that any true Abridged version of Energon would consist of ten seconds of Alpha Q going "Our planets Kicker our planets", someone going "huh?", and the end credits rolling. :)
