All I'm saying is that once again, instead of feeling natural, events played out the way they did just because it was written to, not because it made sense or felt natural to the characters.

As someone who aggressively defended this series back when it first aired, I funny enough find myself in the same boat as Gog.
I really wanted to like this series. I really want to defend this series. But after the piling of criticism after criticism, someone even as stubborn as I am can't ignore the egregious failings of this show and it's writers.
I feel like I'm going through the same crap I did with the movies. At first I really like what they're doing and try and defend what I like about it only to be made the fool in the end and have to conceded to the reality that it sucks.
It doesn't help the fact, being a Optimus fan boy that I am, that both recent incarnations, being the return of Peter Calen to the character, both became nothing more then jokes for the fandom to obnoxiously mock for a cheap giggle. And rightly so, as they are terribly written characters. But that doesn't make it any less depressing.
I didn't see DOTM, and much like that I really don't think I have it in me to bother with season 3 of TFP. After everything that's happened in the show, and what I know is coming, there really isn't anything left for me to enjoy.
Which is a shame, because I have little to no interest in the comics and none what so ever in the up coming 4th film.

Just curious: Did any of the pod cast hosts get the Prime video game yet?

Listening right now, but I do have a point. Playing devil's advocate, but Optimus is dramatically different in this episode compared to the beginning of the season, (i.e. not killing Megatron when he had the chance) but, this was kind of touched on recently. It was commented that Optimus was being odd and secretive, ever since his conversation with Alpha Trion. Maybe, just speculation here, but maybe AT told Optimus something that made him not want to kill Megatron. Alpha Trion was stated to have an understanding of the prophecies of Primus, and an understanding of future events. We also know that we don't know everything Alpha T told Optimus. Now, chances are, this is completely un-related, but that could be a possible justification to be revealed next season. Who knows?

Basically, I feel the show needs to pick a side - serious battles with real consequences or episodic show that's more about enjoying the characters.
I'll definitely be watching season 3 though - it feels like they may be taking the show in a bit of a new direction and maybe once this transition (or you could even all it a retool) is over, the show can go down a better path.

For the most part I agreed with everything stated in this episode. But what I really want to discuss, or just state my opinion on, is the prospect of Gogdog leaving the show - I don't think he should.
Yes, there have been times where I didn't agree with his opinion but that doesn't mean he's wrong nor does it mean that his opinions carry no value. More importantly I find that he's the only member of the podcast who really gets passionate about the show and lets his feelings and emotions influence his thoughts. It's having this specific aspect that makes the podcast worth listening to for me. Then there's also the fact that he has the best predictions and it always gets me hyped to watch the next episode.
Vangelus and Aaron both seem to always be looking at the "glass half full" and generally evaluate the show more on an objective and technical basis. This is a great and fair method of looking at the show as well, but I don't want it to be the only way.
Regardless of what's said on the podcast, I don't listen to it for validation of my opinions. I listen to the show because I'm interested in what others thought. Do I have to agree with everyone's opinion? No. But as long as you can backup your statement then I will respect what you've said. And that's the number one thing Gogdog does best - he's always clearly explained why he agreed/disagreed with something.
