    You would think it would be at least a little about Optimus Prime. So far, in addition to being somewhat bland, he's gotten no character development. We know practically nothing about him other than that he doesn't party. It seems like the whole series has been about Arcee and Bulkhead and Bee to some extent. Ratchet and Optimus however? When are they going to focus on them? And where's the mythology? Is season 1 supposed to be just a standalone? Are they saving everything for season 2?

    I think they said somewhere their original plan for the show was to delve into what it means to be a Prime.

    Imma go out on a limb and say that concept got pushed to the back burner.

    Personally, I'm GLAD that OP is on the back burner. he is the least interesting character in the show IMO.

    This.

    I'm certain Prime development has been pushed to season 2, I guess they're making his character one of those "you gotta wait and see!" types.

    Why are people so impatient with this series? Three seasons have already been planned so we shouldn't expect everything to be touched on this season. It's not like how some shows have to rush characterization because they're constantly in danger of getting canned. TFP is here to stay for a while.

    Last I heard it was 52 episodes. That's only 2 seasons.

    It needs to be called Transformers Arcee.

    She's the most interesting woman in the world.

    That's why she drinks, Dos Energon

    Yeah, but if Optimus is pushed to the back burner, how can he ever get any development and become interesting in the first place. Something tells me these writers have something planned we would have never thought of.

    I believe at Botcon they said the show would be delving more into the mythology in the second season, so yeah.

    Didn't they also say it would be a bit cheesy and flavorful? That doesn't sound too good. I don't know.

    Also, I seem to recall them mentioning plans regarding Optimus and the season 1 finale.

    They said season 2 will have "wine and cheese", thats different from "cheesy", it means high-end stuff.

    It was mentioned at BotCon that "Prime" means "A Beginning".

    "Transformers: A Beginning"

    There's also the theory that the "Prime" in the title is a reference to the Thirteen Original Primes, not Optimus.
