This week we talk Earthrise, rumors of a Beast Wars movie, and the already-drama-filled return of BotCon!
It turns out the people of Griffin Rock have been making very bad decisions for a very long time, as we discover when the island suddenly develops a bad lava problem thanks to an old man-made volcano! What the hell, people!? Can the Burns family get along with their new robot friends for long enough to save everyone from horrible, horrible deaths? Isn’t this an awful lot of mortal peril for preschoolers? And can we stop singing David Bowie songs long enough to work in some references to 90s disaster movies? Join us this week for the second episode of Rescue Bots, “Under Pressure”!
This week we return to a higher quality of programming with the first episode of Transformers: Rescue Bots! When a ship of non-combatant “Rescue Bots” answers Prime’s call and arrives on Earth, they’re assigned to work with a human rescue team that’s also a family! Can they adapt to life on this strange new world? How dangerous can Griffin Rock possibly be? And what connection does this show have to both Transformers Prime and DinoZaurs? Join us this week for “Family of Heroes”!
Before we move on to the idyllic home of the Rescue Bots, we’re heading back in time to the days of Beast Machines to check out a different show about transforming animal warriors: DinoZaurs! And what we discover is IT’S TERRIBLE! Who are the Dino Knights? What toy company thought this was a good idea, and what American production company needed to fill time desperately enough to dub it? What is the sole good thing about this show? And how many of these things are NOT ACTUALLY DINOSAURS? Join us this week as we suffer through the first episode of DinoZaurs, “Dino Knights Revived”!
After three seasons and a movie, we’ve reached the end of Transformers Prime. Who were our favorite characters? What had we forgotten about since the show first aired? And will we ever see a main-line Transformers series go quite so dark? Join us this week as we share some final thoughts on the series!
2019 has come to a close and… it was fine, we guess.
It’s all come down to this! The Special Signature to Save a Soul is activated, Gridman regains his “nostalgic” true form, and the final fight is joined to save Akane from Alexis Kerib! Who will survive, and what will be left of their world when it’s all over? This week we’re joined by tokusatsu megafan Igadevil for the final episode of SSSS.Gridman, “Awakening”!
But with news of a new SSSS project on the horizon, will this truly be the final episode of this podcast, or do new adventures await us? Stay tuned!
Unicron and his army of slow-moving but also surprisingly fast reanimated Predacons are marching on the Well of All Sparks! Can the Autobots stop them? How about the Decepticons? The remaining living Predacons, maybe? When is this “rising” going to happen? Do you think we could get one more noble Optimus sacrifice in here for good measure before the series ends? Join us this week for the final part of Transformers Prime’s concluding movie, “Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters: Predacons Rising”!
Unicron may be stuck in Megatron’s relatively tiny body, but that’s not going to stop him from trying to kill Primus — he’s just gonna need more zombies! If only there was a convenient recently-unearthed field of Predacon “bones” for him to use… Join us this week for the second part of Transformers Prime’s concluding movie, “Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters: Predacons Rising”!
Three seasons and a movie! Megatron was totally defeated, and all the zombie blood he’d injected himself with just isn’t relevant at all, right? Lol no. Unicron has a use for Megatron’s body, and it’s time to go kill God whether Megatron’s eternal soul likes it or not! Meanwhile, Optimus needs to find the Allspark if he wants to revive Cybertron, but somehow that’s the one artifact that didn’t end up on Earth! Join us this week for the first part of Transformers Prime’s concluding movie, “Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters: Predacons Rising”!
