Well, well: it's the ending of Beast Wars all over again. Decent episode, for certain, but honestly this whole finale reeked of a writing team who weren't told that they had to end the series until about two episodes before the end. Compare the pacing of "Endgame II" to that of "This is Why I Hate Machines"..."Machines" was assured and focused, teasing out plot details in a dramatic slow-burn, whereas this one was a breathless rush, cutting back and forth between this plot and the other in a desperate attempt to bring a semblance of closure to as many characters as possible, all the while hamstrung by time constraints and the need to fill an action quota. I seriously can't believe that both episodes were written under the same circumstances; if they were, then it's poor structuring on the story planners' part. Don't get me wrong, I had a good time with it, but really, this needed to be at least a three-parter for it to have any chance of being able to breathe. It's a shame that Animated ultimately ended up getting pushed out of the door so fast it didn't have time to tie its shoelaces properly, but like I said, the same thing happened to Beast Wars, and at the end of the day I don't think any less of that series. Goodbye, TFA: it's been a whole lot of fun.
