    Yes.

    Rodimus Prime does his best impression of an egg in the episode. You'll see what I mean when you watch it for yourself.

    Looks like someone forgot to mention that Paul Dini of the DCAU fame wrote 'Dweller in the Depths"

    Season 3 Episode 22: Only Human

    Rating:
    60/100: COOOOOOOOOOBRA!!!! In other news, this episode was fun but I think it would have been better as a two parter since the pacing was so fast.


    Comments:


    -We begin this episode with what else? Explosions!

    -Springer has such an odd helicopter mode, it's more Cybetronian then anything else.

    -I HATE THESE ACCENTS SO MUCH!

    -Is that Candle Jack as S-*get's taken away*

    -*free's himself from you know who* Oh this is the human episode.

    -And there's the title name in the episode..I hate it when they do that.

    -WHAT? Snake is STARSCREAM! That's quite a twist.

    -EVERYONE BUT ARCEE LOOK THE SAME!

    -That is some oddly specific clothing you got there.

    -Ha, Cultists.

    -Ha, Springer is riding himself.

    -Yay! Explosions!

    -Ha! Arcee riding a motorcycle.

    -This girl wants Rodimus so damn badly. It's kinda funny.

    -The guards faces just look...odd.

    -How the hell are they going to finish this episode in 5 minutes?

    -Ultra Magnus will always be an old guy, even more so then Animated Ratchet.

    -You know I gotta say this episode has been going FAR to fast for my liking.

    -OH MAN! It's not Starscream, it's Cobra Commander. WHAT A TWIST!!!

    I love that they mention terrorists in that episode.

    They wouldn't be able to say that on a kids' show nowadays! :lol

    Springer does indeed has a Cybertronian helicopter mode, just like his toy.

    The buildings were strangely very futuristic in this episode.

    The four fantastic Autobots as humans look very familar.

    Chris Latta voices Cobra Commander in the G.I. Joe cartoons with a traditional Starscream voice too. Not knowing that, you'd be forgiven for thinking it was Starscream all along (its not really a twist though). Its not the last time Latta voices a character in transformers with Starscream's voice but its not for a while yet.

    I'm glad you noticed Arcee rides a motorbike. I just got the connection yesterday when i re-watched the episode.

    Rodimus gets laid. Totally.

    Did you notice Rodimus (well, his body) turned into Hot Rod's vehicle mode for one scene then back to Rodimus Prime's vehicle mode the next? And where was the matrix all this time? Wouldn't the thugs have found it when they opened up his chest compartment?

    Latta did indeed get the best lines "They just don't make terrorists like they used to! COBRA!!" has been a classic line from G1 for the last twenty plus years.

    No Cons at all!

    That episode just M. Night Shyamalan'd your ass.

    Oh, what will become of this topic when you've reviewed all G1 episodes? Headmasters?

    This is my new favorite expression.

    Also if he doesn't want to do the Japanese series I will. I have only seen Zone and a few episodes of Headmasters. Although those Headmasters episodes were several years ago and I wasn't really paying attention at the time.

    At this rate, it may be a discussion about AARP benefits.

    Hey, some new reviews since I last checked this topic (about a month ago.) Nice to see Meta is still going. Would be cool to see someone do HM next.

    Everyone who hasn't yet should also check out Johnboy's review thread in the comics forum. He's done reviews ALL of the G1 and G2 comic and has just started the BW cartoon.

    Maybe headmasters can be reviewed as a group with deadlines each week. Just a thought
