    Riding the baby scooter in Triangulation, laughing at the LolCat in New Recruit, the whole slo-mo scene in Inside Job.... The biggest LOL ever, Starscream's hip swivel in Patch. Must I say more?

    He is indeed incredibly hilarious. I think Knock Out probably takes second place.

    He's definitely the funniest element in the show for me. He's just so eccentric and egotistical and silly and downright crazy :lol

    I'm not convinced the writers even like Starscream, anymore. At first he was Megatron's personal (usual) foil. Then, when he defected he got into more and more silly 'situations'.

    Now they're not even content with that anymore, they had to go back and mess with a scene from the first story arc. The dance wasn't really that funny to me, it just looked nasty. :-/

    I don't really like it. It's just not screaming 'Starscream' to me.

    I prefer the SS that's unintentionally funny. (Like TFA Starscream)

    As a shameless Starscream fanboy - I have no issues. So the writers are having some fun with him? Who couldn't imagine Starscream doing the happy dance once he finally got rid of Megatron?

    Could I ever have imagined Starscream doing the "I can't HEAR you!!!!" and the Cabbage Patch? Probably not - but screw it! It was funny!

    I love this incarnation best. I mean the writers and Steve Blum are having so much fun with this character.

    I have to mostly agree here. I was dealing (and laughing!) with the scooter and other such things - it was all he could scrape together with his resources. The mildly degrading situations were just part of his bad luck. I don't think the writers -hate- him, but I hope that his strengths as a clever and dangerous character are played up more in future episodes now that we've all had our laugh. They pointedly reminded us of his amazing flight skills, after all.

    That dance haunts my nightmares. xD

    Starscream/Steve Blum rock. This is one re-run episode I don't get tired of watching. :D

    I agree completely. I miss when he was relevant.

    Sadly that's all he is.

    I love Prime Starscream. He is literally one of the few reasons I continue to watch the show. Hell, I tend to skip episodes that don't have him or Knockout at this point.

    I would like to see him be a little more serious, now that he's back with the 'Cons, though.

    This is probably the only Starscream incarnation I'm not amused by.
