David’s sick, Jen’s apartment-hunting, and Rob’s…doing Canadian things, so we’re taking a break before Predacons Rising and offering up another special from our Patreon back catalog, Kemono Friends episode 5, “Lake”! Thoughts and prayers for David’s throat, y’all.
It’s the end of the line for Transformers Prime (more or less) as the Autobots and Decepticons have a final showdown on the Nemesis! Who lives, who dies, who gets banished to the shadow zone, and who switches sides? Join us this week for the final episode, “Deadlock”! (But don’t worry, there’s still a movie coming!)
Yuta is wounded and comatose and Akane is too depressed to make any more kaiju, but that’s not stopping Alexis Kerib from pulling out the old toku series trick of resurrecting the ones Gridman’s already defeated — and it falls to Anti to stop them as Gridknight! Can he hold them off long enough for the Gridman Alliance and the Neon Genesis Junior High crew to figure out how to wake Yuta up or get through to Akane? And can they deal with the whole existential crisis thing on top of that? This week we’re once again joined by Trent Troop, one of the creators of Transformers: Shattered Glass, for the penultimate episode of SSSS.Gridman, “Decisive Battle”!
With the help of Raf’s adorable drone Chip, the Autobots are ready to storm the Nemesis and save Ratchet! But can they get there before the Decepticons get the Synth En formula? Will Predaking get his revenge? Seriously, how does Optimus fly with all that chonk? Join us this week for the penultimate episode of Transformers Prime, “Synthesis”!
Jen is back from TFCon DC and she’s got new toys, thoughts on the collectors’ market, and a lead on a new place to live thanks to the 3P panel!
The Decepticons need Ratchet to perfect his Synth En so they can restore the Omega Lock, but can they convince him to help knowing what they plan to do with it in addition to the whole restoring Cybertron thing? How few f**ks does Megatron give that he’s not even going to bother to lie about it? And why does the Synth En just look like jars full of pee now? Join us this week for the antepenultimate episode of Transformers Prime, “Persuasion”!
The lab full of Predacons has been destroyed, but the Decepticons are still very enthusiastic about being terrible at the scientific method! But if they’re going to figure out how to stabilize synthetic Energon, they’re going to need someone who’s actually GOOD at science — they’re going to have to kidnap Ratchet! Meanwhile, the Autobots have managed to capture Soundwave, but is he trapped in there with them or are they etc. etc.? And will Smokescreen ever stop being the worst? Join us this week for “Minus One”!
The Decepticons realize they got more than they bargained for with their pet dragon as the self-declared “Predaking” starts making plans to take over the army of clones growing in Shockwave’s lab. Can they thwart his ambitions without turning his fire breath on them? Where will the Decepticons ever find someone who’s good at deceit and backstabbing? And can Ultra Magnus learn to fit in with Team Prime, or is he destined to always be Mean Dad? Join us this week for an “Evolution” revolution!
This week’s episode is an all-NYCC special as we discuss the new toys shown off at the convention and oh yeah, Unicron funded!
Unable to defeat Gridman, Shinjo spirals into depression and starts to question her own humanity, but Alexis Kerib still wants a kaiju — and the sad, half-finished one he brings to life hides a horrifying monster with the power of a teenage girl’s broken heart! It’s too powerful for Gridman, but can he stop it with a little help from… Gridknight? Does that kaiju look like a vagina to anyone else? And who want a poetry reading? This week we’re joined by Christine Love of Love Conquers All Games for the next-to-penultimate episode of SSSS.Gridman, “Collapse”!
