Oh no, Blades, Boulder, and Heatwave have been shrunk! Can they find a way to let Chase and the others know where they are before it’s too late? Why do Griffin Rock’s petty criminals look like druids? Will the museum’s holographic Chester A. Arthur blow their cover? And who’s gonna get a sexy carwash? This week we channel the spirit of David Wise with “Small Blessings”!
Now that they’ve been replaced by the totally-not-evil Dr. Morocco’s totally-not-evil MorBot, the Rescue Bots don’t know what to do with themselves! Should they go join up with Team Prime? Take the opportunity to catch up on their TV shows? Maybe learn to cook? Or maybe they’ll be needed to save Griffin Rock from the guy who’s a top hat and a few decorative gears from being a steampunk villain! Join us this week for “The Reign of Morocco”!
Doc Greene’s been fired as Griffin Rock’s official mad scientist, but where will they find someone to take his place? Fortunately Doctor Morocco has conveniently arrived — and his MorBot has an eye on the Rescue Bots and Burns Family’s jobs as well! And no one voiced by Tim Curry is ever evil! Can we stop going on about how great Tim Curry is for long enough to actually discuss the episode? Join us this week for “The Other Doctor”!
And now, the exciting conclusion of… The Transformers: The Movie!
Everything has been quite a lot for everyone lately, so we’re going into our Patreon archives for a movie we think is comfort food viewing for all of us: The original 1986 The Transformers: The Movie! We discuss the movie from memory — no rewatching! — and still manage to spend twice the runtime of the movie itself discussing this gem of 80s action animation (which is why it’s a two-part episode). What fun fandom anecdotes do we have to share? What is the secret of the evil planet Unicron? Will Optimus Prime die!? Wrap yourself in your favorite blanket, start up Animal Crossing, and settle in with us from a safe distance as we discuss one of our favorite movies!
Doc Greene has repurposed the Dino Bot as a home assistant, and nothing could possibly go wrong! Connecting all of Griffin Rock’s many automated functions to one central computer? Also a very good idea! And using technology that some rando left in his lab after breaking in? Absolutely nothing bad could come of that! Right? Join us this week for the totally chill and not at all destructive “Return of the Dino Bot!”
No one is very excited about the annual Burns Family fishing trip except the Chief, Cody, and the Rescue Bots — but that changes when a mechanical shark starts attacking Doc Greene’s underwater equipment! Can they stop this robotic aquatic sabotage? Is there anything Heatwave won’t try to solve with punching? And are they gonna need a bigger boat to carry all these Jaws references? Join us this week for “Deep Trouble”!
Griffin Rock is having a heat wave, so Cody talks Doc Greene into setting his weather machine to Snow for a little Christmas in July! What could possibly go wrong? Who’s surprised Doc Greene has a Weather Dominator? (No one.) And who is “gonna hit that”? Join us this week for “Christmas in July”!
When Doc Greene gives Cody a super-advanced robot baby to care for, he enlists the aid of the Rescue Bots to help them learn about humans! Can they keep the ridiculously expensive Robo-Baby fed, changed, napped, and away from the constant danger that follows everyone on Griffin Rock? How long did Doc Greene spend developing synthetic baby poop? And how long will we spend talking about Leonard Nimoy instead? Join us this week for “Four Bots and a Baby”!
Cody wants to go out on rescue patrol with the rest of his family, but the old go-kart he found might not be enough to keep up. Maybe there’s something at Doc Greene’s lab that’ll add a little juice! Or, you know, put everyone in mortal peril as crazed nanites are set loose on the town, turning machinery both inanimate and otherwise into out-of-control monsters. Definitely one of those things. And who’s that very familiar name in the writing credits? Join us this week for “Cody on Patrol”!
