    Friday Nights in the UK airs a sitcom about a smart-alec, Lee, his wimpy Mate Tim and Tim's sister Lucy.

    Tim is trying to do something about his wimpyness and takes steroids, when Lee asks him what he's doing Tim answers:

    "These will be like Energon to Terrasaur, Transformers... the original series, not the recent film, which quite frankly was a dissapointment"

    An interesting pop culture reference, even if they're mixing up Beast Wars with "the original series".

    BBC - BBC One Programmes - Not Going Out, Series 3, Neighbour

    Well, supposedly Beast Wars was some sort of a continuation of G1...

    Nice reference to TF, though it irked me when Tim says the recent film was a disappointment.

    That quote he says fails epically in so many ways.

    I guess the writer saw the BW episode 'Power Surge'.
