    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.

    YAAAAY! Just finished watching this on YouTube and I love it. Lockdown is quite the mercenary. I can see him developping a substantial fan base. It's also great to have Arcee back, voiced by Susan Blu. I hope she isn't limited to that flashback sequence. A female member should help balance out the main cast a bit. Great script as usual and some chuckle-worthy lines. I hope the writers keep up the good work.

    BTW, did anyone else get the feeling that Ratchet's Cybertronian mode is strangely reminiscent of Rodimus' Winnebago?

    excellent episode, it was good to see a little cameo of ultra magnus and ratchet's cybertron mode, I like the way lockdown collects unique parts, his insignia is blacked does this mean hes not really a decepticon until later on?

    A very good episode. I didn't miss Sari one bit. Sadly why do I think it will be made up for with another dismal Sari packed episode like the slumber party ep.

    As for Blitzwing - There's nothing like a cunning Decepticon warrior, whose third personality is that of a 4 year old child. Also Is it just me or does his first face remind anyone of Colonel Klink?

    Actually my girlfriend said "I wonder if this means Arcee becomes Blackarachnia" and that was when Ratchet first found her on the battle field.

    That episode was sad.

    But man, Lockdown...

    Even when you thought he was beat, he still tries to get in one last shot. He's pretty badass, and it's a good thing he returns in future eps, or else I'd be pissed.

    Lance Henrikson didn't fail to deliver at all. Fantastic vocal talent all the way through. The fight scenes were the best since BW. (Prowl using his wheels to grind LD's face was awesome!)

    Lockdown is hands-down my favorite character in Animated.

    That episode was the best so far! Loved the Dinobots, but this one just takes the cake. Great to know a bit more about Ratchet finally.

    That was awesome on so many levels.
    Henrickson's voice was perfect for Lockdown.

    If that's true, how come both characters are voiced by different people?

    You know, one gripe I have with this episode is Blitzwing's ridiculous german accent. I think the writers took the 'Blitz' part of his name too literally. German accents for bad guys was recognized as politically incorrect twenty years ago. -_-

    Arcee... That was all I needed. And voiced by Susan Blu no less. *joygasm*

    To top it off, Lockdown owns, and we got some cool characterization outta Ratchet

    Awesome episode.

    It gave Ratchet some great characterization - and Lockdown is officially badass. He's such an awesome character.

    Meanwhile, I continue to love Prowl as a character - he was the one I liked the least in the pilot, and he's my favorite Autobot now.

    awesome episode!! i loved at the begining with the store& horn, and when they first chased Lockdown-Bumblebee using his arms&stingers in car mode and prime with the move with the bilboard, and how poilte he was to the ppl crossing the street and him apologizing abou thitting the car with his shoulder. plus Blitzwing was as nutty as ever ^^

    Ratchet getting zapped and telling Arcee she was in "shock" made me fall off the couch laughing

    Oh, and Lockdown Vs. Prowl was wicked but one thing bugs me-Is it just me, or is Lockdown's Earth car exactly the same as his Cybertronian car? (sorry, double post)

    Well, we don't get a clear shot of his Cybertronian car.
