I thought this was a good episode because they had both a sort of Decepticon and the Autobots in a struggle. I'm starting to get tired of the back-story episodes. The reason G1 (1984-86) was so great was the epic struggle between the two factions. I'm glad that they are trying to incorporate some of G1 into this new series, however. Having Susan Blu work on the series as well as voice Arcee again at least shows us they appreciate the G1 enthusiasts. Lastly, my 9 year old daughter loves the show, so I do like it for that reason.
