    I have been watching the original cartoon with my kids and they've been totally into it. They get very excited when a new character shows up (they were even excited that Shockwave came to earth in Autobot Run, even though it was a total animation error lol). We're mid season 2 at this point.

    Anyway, when we get to the last group of episodes this season, I want to make sure they see Starscream's Brigade and Revenge of Bruticus before Aerial Assault, since in the official order Aerial Assault has the Combaticons show up before they are created. TFwiki also mentions War Dawn should probably come before Aerial Assault. Anyway, what ordering of the following episodes makes the most sense? Should I just move Aerial Assault down after Revenge of Bruticus?

    "Aerial Assault"
    "War Dawn"
    "Trans-Europe Express"
    "Cosmic Rust"
    "Starscream's Brigade"
    "The Revenge of Bruticus"
    "Masquerade"
    "B.O.T."

    If it were me, I'd move "Aerial Assault" to after "The Revenge of Bruticus", if only because it prevents the Combaticons from appearing before their origin story, but when I watched the show for the first time as a kid, I'm sure I watched episodes out of order without it affecting my enjoyment of the show. I also concur with maybe not having "B.O.T." as the last episode of the season, if only because the human characters in that episode are painfully annoying. However, if your kids prove to be huge Swindle fans, then it might not matter as much.

    Just bump aerial assault to the last episode. It's what i do. It's a much better finale than bot. And yes, war dawn should be the first episode after key to vector sigma.

    Although masquerade also makes a great season finale. May just be bias on that though.

    Skip B.O.T. entirely, is what I would suggest...

    Don't forget to switch 'Child's Play' and 'The Gambler' around, too.

    By the sound of it, might be a little late for that!
