    So... Is the 5 part mini part of the 26 episodes or do we have 26 MORE episodes before season 2?

    Also sounds like we might possibly be seeing Slipstream... At least I hope. Unless it's an all-new character, there aren't many female Decepticons.

    So Cliffjumper is dead? Yeah right. Just like Megatron. Megatron will be back. Even if Cliff is dead, that doesn't mean he can't be brought back to life via the Allspark or something. It's lame, but nothing new in the Transformers universe. Kick ass female Decepticon? I hope it's Strika. I just like her. She's cruel and powerful but not girly looking. For some reason, I can just see Strika and Shockwave working together on the same team.

    Hmm, I'm thinking maybe Slipstream - because she was in WfC. Not sure who Strika is.

    Why does every writer do a story where Megatron and Prime were friends?? This is why I don't follow any of these spin offs from the original show in the 80's. Prime and Megatron were never friends, they never even met till they met on the battlefield. I just the original story a lot better.

    It's a different kind of story. And the one advantage it has is that it makes the war personal between the faction leaders.

    The next episode is numbered after the last one, which was numbered five, so I think it's a safe bet the first season will have 26 episodes total--what we've already seen plus what's to come:D

    Because actually having a character with a complex backstory that adds layers of drama is much more interesting than "Guy A is good, Guy B is bad, so they fight."

    A great example of this is John Milton's poem, "Paradise Lost," which depicts the typically simple evil character of Lucifer as a tragic character, who fell not due to being evil, but due to jealousy and pride. There is even a sequence when, looking upon humanity, Lucifer feels a twinge of regret towards his actions.

    This version of the character was used in the TV show "Supernatural" which explored the complex relationship that had emerged between Lucifer and his brother, Michael. Such a relationship may be what the writers are trying to achieve between Optimus Prime and Megatron.

    It also gives a reason for why Optimus can't bring himself to just out and out kill Megatron. If there is this connection, Optimus may find it difficult to kill his old friend.

    Actually, in the original Optimus first met Megatron as Orion Pax, who sort of looked up to and trusted Megatron, before he tried to kill him.

    I'd guess that was maybe the inspiration for Optimus and Megatron actually knowing each other before the war.

    Easier to explore a Character in a total of 11 hours in 1 season of a 4 season series then in 2 1/2 hours of film, especially when the movie has a shit ton of characters, and it takes longer to animate a scene dealing with that character then it does to film three real actors running from explosions in three different scenes. thats what the comics are for.

    So Bumblebee might yet speak again. that sounds good to me, there's no reason for him to have no voice, especially since there is a medibot within the team. Unless Bee talked too much so Ratchet prefers him quiet :lol

    That'd be pretty crazy, but I'd love to see it.

    You know...Given how this Ratchet's personality is...I can believe that. :lol
