Strongarm is supposed to be on her first solo mission — but Bumblebee can’t help following along to make sure she’s all right. But when they run into the Decepticon Springload in the jungle obsessively hunting for the lost city of Doradus, will Bee be able to trust her long enough to get the job done? Can Russell and the other Autobots keep Denny and Fixit from murdering each other? Would a Fountain of Energon just be like a giant fondue pot? Or more like a fountain of blood? Join us this week for a “Rumble in the Jungle”!
Grimlock’s turned on the Autobots and run off with Underbite’s stasis pod to give to Steeljaw! But has Grimlock really betrayed them — and if he hasn’t, who’s going to believe him? What’s the labor market in Crown City like if literally every piece of important infrastructure is completely automated? Why is Steeljaw so sexy? And can we stop singing Cyndi Lauper for long enough to talk about it? Join us this week for “True Colors”!
The Corvicon Filch wants to steal all the shiny things Crown City has to offer — no matter how architecturally important they are! Meanwhile, Russell and Fixit have their hands full with a reality-TV frenemy of Denny’s who’s not above trespassing to get a look at Denny’s collection! Can the Autobots stop Filch before she causes any human casualties? Can Fixit figure out how a television appearance could induce stellar fusion? And how awesomely is Grimlock holding up? Join us this week for “Collect ‘Em All”!
A run-in with a local cryptid in the woods near Crown City has convinced some local humans that they must do whatever the massive, antlered Kospego commands — but why does that elk-creature sound like Frank Stallone? Is Thunderhoof even pretending to be a cryptid, or is he just ordering the native life around? Can Sideswipe be a useful member of the team long enough not to sabotage the whole operation to catch him? And what IS that accent anyway? Join us this week as we do “As the Kospego Commands!”
Bumblebee knows he’s not the leader Optimus Prime was, and it feels like his team’s antics are constantly reminding him of that. So as they go on a mission to retrieve a stasis pod that’s been found by a local museum, he asks himself, “What would
Sky Lynx Optimus Prime do?” Are big, dramatic speeches what he needs to turn his team into a cohesive fighting unit? Is he being too hard on himself? Is Terrashock the Buffaloid going to wreck the museum and blow their cover before he can figure it out? Or will McPlank save the day? Join us this week as we ask ourselves, “W.W.O.D.?”
Things are getting dull for the less combat-oriented members of the team, so while Denny talks Russell into joining the neighborhood kids’ football game, Fixit decides he wants to tag along with the other Autobots! Can Denny help him put together a believable human disguise? How does the bug combiner Chop Shop’s consciousness work? Do all the bugs have their own roles in the heist, like, is one the driver, one’s the explosives guy, one’s the face? And can we just retire that title already? Join us this week for “More Than Meets the Eye” (the RiD 2015 episode one)!
The team splits up to investigate double Decepticon sightings: Bumblebee and Grimlock go after the Sharkticon pirate Hammerstrike and Strongarm and Sideswipe track down the unreasonably sexy furry-magnet Steeljaw! But with the team still lacking in teamwork, will these Decepticons get the better of them? Where is Crown City even located that it’s getting Russian oil tankers right off its coast? AND WHY IS STEELJAW SO SEXY? Join us this week for some “Trust Exercises”!
Underbite’s loose and he’s looking for metal to munch! Can Bumblebee and his new team get their act together and stop him before he gets to Crown City? What’s a “dad”? What’s OPTIMUS doing there!? How great a catchphrase is “THAT’S ‘CAUSE I ATE IT”? And will David have remembered to update the wiki by the time this is posted? Join us this week for the inventively-named second half of the Robots in Disguise pilot, “Pilot (Part 2)”!
On patrol with the rookie Strongarm and the apprehended troublemaker Sideswipe, Bumblebee starts seeing visions of Optimus Prime — the Optimus Prime who gave his life to reignite the Allspark! And he wants Bumblebee to go to Earth! What new adventure awaits them there? What new human friends await them there? And how is he supposed to get anything done with all these people tagging along? Join us this week for the first episode of Robots in Disguise (2015), the creatively-named “Pilot (Part 1)”!
With season 1 of Rescue Bots finished, it’s time to move on to Robots in Disguise! No, not the Car Robots dub. Or the IDW series. No, this Robots in Disguise is the post-Prime animated series with an anthro twist, and this week we’ve brought in our friends Greg Sepelak and Trent Troop from The Isle of Rangoon to give us a primer on Team Bee and their beastly Con adversaries!
