    Season 3 Episode 8: Dark Awakening

    Rating:95/100: This episode was so awesome that it tore through the fabric of space time itself and punched me in the face.


    Comments:


    -Atoni Zalewski....that's quite a name.

    -Galavatron is the craziest 'con I have ever seen...he's even crazier then TFA Blizwing.

    -...Rodimus Prime speaks quite bluntly...espeically when he's talking about his human friends dying...that's not a very good trait in a leader...is it?

    -I really like the design of Galvatron's ship.

    -....This episode just got really interesting.

    -....I wish they showed the face's of those who died and not just the nameplate...of course this is the 80s so I don't think they had the budget or the resources to do it.

    -SWEET ZOMBIE JESUS THAT WAS CREEPY! Imagine being a kid and just having destroy robot bodies just appear....good god, that would be horrible.

    -HOLY SHIT! This battle just went from "generic" to "awesome" in 5 seconds with Zombie Prime showing up.

    -You can tell by the way Rodimus is reacting that he really never wanted to do the job of leading the Autobots.

    -WHAT THE HELL IS THIS!?! Optimus Prime....going all evil....this can't be good at all.

    -....someone is controlling Optimus Prime...we must fix this at once!

    -...Optimus Prime...lying......I disagree with this.

    -God, I hate the Quintessions....they just don't sit right me...I actually refer that thing that was in...Cybertron, that constantly switched emotions.

    -Heh, this is the first time since the movie we've seen the other dinobots.

    -Ha! Hotrod just punches through the door.

    -The Quintessions suck....they really do.

    -...this is quite saddening....probably the most depressing episode so far.

    -And thus Optimus's story ends...for a second time.

    Enjoy!

    That was quick. Thanks.


    This isn't the last disturbingly creepy episode in season three.

    Dark Awakening, other than the lousy animation, was one of the best episodes in the season. Rodimus's sarcastic and dry wit came out very well, and the plot was nice and engaging unlike others (Thief in the Night, for instance). Plus hey, everyone had good lines in it.

    Arcee: Sludge! Snarl! Oh, are we glad to see you.
    Sludge: Me Sludge not glad to see you.
    Snarl: You all dead! Rarrr!
    Sludge: ...Maybe we dead.

    Dark Awakening reminds me very much of one of the first Marvel US Comic Issues, with Optimus Primes beeing remotely controlled, leading the Autobots in to a trap and all that

    Very nice episode, one of my favorites in G1

    >_> There doesn't seem to be any design flaw, Bass. I checked the feedback forum just to be sure and they don't mention anything about.

    Edit: New episode tomorrow....I'm going to rename this week

    Season 3 Episode 9: Forever Is A Long Time Coming

    Rating:9/100 This episode was piece of crap and I hate Time Travel...a lot.

    Comments:

    -This episode is written by a married couple.....or a brother and sister....either way this should be interesting.

    -......the energy of time itself.....that....does not bold well for this episode.

    -I am barley following the conversation these guys are having.

    -Autobot cassettes still confuse me.

    -That was an odd animation error....Wreck-Gar looked like a demented tracks.

    -Woo! The Aerialbots...we haven't seen them since season 2.

    -...I'm so confused...so, that person that I thought was animation error of Wreck-Gar is actually Rewind?....then how come he only shows up by himself and I have yet to see his alt mode?

    -OHHHH! Rewind is a cassette-bot.

    -I hate Time Travel episodes...so much.

    -I really hate Time Travel episodes.

    -.....This episode is almost as bad as "A Decepticon Raider in King Arthur's Court"

    Don't Enjoy!

    Rewind first showed up during the movie when he jumped out of Blaster's chest to attack the Decepticon cassettes.

    Welcome to our world. A world where things are not as they seem.

    You must hate Beast Wars - the whole premise was because of time travel.


    Just be glad you didn't have to contend with Galvatron time-travelling back to the eighties and working alongside Megatron who was actually a clone of the real Megatron intended to be a host body for a Cybertronian Decepticon leader who struggled with the personality of the real Megatron for dominance of the clone body while Galvatron remembers the battle twenty years ago back when he was Megatron, unable to grasp in his mind how things are happening so differently this time around despite the fact that Galvatron himself is actively acting in contradiction of his twenty year old memories.
