    I saw a couple of minutes of Megas XLR just now.
    Don't particularly like the show but I noticed that they had something that looked exactly like the matrix but it was squiting golden/yellow cheese or alien goo or something.

    Also saw it once where the robot they were fighting was clearly Unicron.

    they must have some Big TF fans working on the show.

    It's this animated show about some guy and his giant robot. The robot has a car for a head and fights other giant robots.

    I'm not sure of the general plot as I've never watched an entire episode but it seems to be on here (Canada) a lot.

    I have seen the show, it rocks by the way but they have copied soooooooo many things from transformers. They had robots with a Shockwave head, a Megatron/Galvatron like guy and that's just from the shows I have seen.

    that show was A W E S O M E ! ! !

    i was sad it got canceled.

    It had tons of TF referances, and a lot of times if you watched the backgrounds you'ld see a lot of TF alt modes, bumblebee was in almost every episode...

    To bad that noone picked it up. I was hoping that maybe the G4Techtv would pick up the show, like they did with the Happy Tree Friends.

    Great show. Most people on these boards are mad at CN for the timeslots they've given Energon and Cybertron; I'm only mad at them for cancelling Megas XLR - and Samurai Jack (not sure if it was cancelled, but it has been a couple of years since I've seen it).

    Yeah, it was a great show. Every episode had a transformer reference of some kind. Sometimes it was subtle, other times it was in your face. The cheese filled Matrix and mini Unicron were hilarious.

    So many yellow beetles destroyed.

    Great episode was a race of glory seeking robots trying to destroy Megas because of an accident they caused and the two main ones being voiced by Frank Welker and Peter Cullen.

    Megas was a damn good show, and also furthor proof that Cartoon Network is ran by a bunch of morons.

    My favourite episode was the one with Captain Harlock, because they just kept pounding the reference in. His ship was exactly the same, his costume was exactly the same, he kept striking poses from the movie covers, I half expected a billboard to show up near the end that just said "WE REALLY LIKE CAPTAIN HARLOCK"

    Megas made obscure jokes that were once solely the realm of flash videos. That's why we loved it, and that's why it was cancelled.

    Megas was rammed to the gills with so many anime and transformers homages that it was inevitable I would love it.
    It also helps that it actually is funny and well written.

    Has there been any sign of a dvd set?
    I don't need extras, just all the episodes on some shiny discs for a good price.

    I think it really needs the Adult Swim-style sweet-ass case design DVD treatment. I'd buy it.

    even though she thought it was totally stupid, my wife couldn't help herself from laughing at it sometimes, and couldn't stop singing the theme song...

    I loved the Battle for the Planets/Voltron/Power Rangers episode. God that was priceless.

    That and the tiny little guy with additude who looked a bit like Unicron..
