The Rescue Bots have lost their memories, but the mortal peril won’t wait — Griffin Rock is sinking into the sea! What gizmos from previous episodes can they use to save it? Who is the most relieved to learn Blades isn’t actually their leader? And would it blow the Bots’ cover to charge Doctor Morocco with kidnapping instead of property theft? Join us this week as we finish up season 2 of Rescue Bots with “Rise of the Heroes”!
We’re at the end of the season, so it’s time for some high-stakes plot developments as Doctor Morocco and Madeline Pynch team up to botnap the Rescue Bots! So what nefarious scheme requires some giant alien robots? What nefarious tool does the Doctor have to get them to play along? And where can we find some episodes of Cupcake Hoarders? This week there’s no disguise for some “Double Villainy”!
A mysterious new super hero arrives in Griffin Rock just in time for the debut of the mayor’s new high-speed train from the mainland — which of course goes horribly wrong! Who is this phasing mystery hero? Why didn’t they just use perfectly good existing high-speed train technology that isn’t prone to catastrophe? And who is Griffin Rock’s most trusting and naive citizen? Join us this week as we go all aboard “The Griffin Rock Express”!
It’s time for a swimsuit episode when Chise wins everyone free passes to the Tokyo Beach Land water park! But when Sizumu from the Kaiju Eugenicists invites himself along, can Gauma resist the urge to start a fight that’ll get them all kicked out? Can Yomogi and Yume figure out what Gauma meant when he told them to act “like lovers” to throw Sizumu off? And how does this one stack up to the SSSS.Gridman swimsuit episode? It’s no running by the pool this week as we watch SSSS.Dynazenon episode 5, “What’s Lover-Like Mean?”!
For our Halloween special, David kung-fu kicks Rob into one of his favorite spook-’em-ups, the fantastic phantasmagorical 1977 Japanese horror movie HOUSE! It’s a gorgeous chroma-key-filled exploration into the nightmares of a child, complete with hungry pianos, 70s easy-listening J-pop melodies, a sweet kitty cat, more watermelons than you can stomach, and more nudity than you were expecting! Plus prof positive: oh my god, Bear is cooking! How can this be?
We’re back in Transformers Prime season 2 territory as Bumblebee arrives in Griffin Rock to look for a lost Cybertronian artifact-weapon!

And WHEN DID THEY GET A HOT WHEELS RACE TRACK IN THEIR BACKYARD? Join us this week for “Odd Bot Out”!
One of our favorite guest stars returns as Uncle Woodrow arrives to help the Burns family while the Chief heads to the mainland for a conference! But will he really be any use when the Dolphin Wonder Festival gets out of hand, or will he just get in the way? Can the Burns kids learn to accept their wacky uncle? And what in the name of Lisa Frank is a Dolphin Wonder Festival, anyway? Join us this week for “Chief Woodrow”!
Frustrated with Yomogi’s angst interfering with Dynazenon training, Gauma pushes him to deal with his feelings for Yume — but when he gets a horrible cold, that only makes things more complicated! But why is Sizumu joining their class, and why is he just wearing his ridiculous Kaiju Eugenicist yacht club outfit there? What super-cool power does this episode’s kaiju have? And can they beat it with Yomogi out of action? Join us this week for episode 4 of SSSS.Dynazenon, “What Is This Thumping Heart?”
It’s Griffin Rock’s Plant a Tree Day, so naturally Mayor Luskey has an exciting new experimental robot to help with the planting! But when the little droid is inevitably hit by lightning, it inevitably goes on a rampage — underground! Can the Bots stop it before the town is overrun with all the badgers, roaches, and other underground critters fleeing the Power Planter’s subterranean wrath? How angry will we get about a lightning strike reversing a robot’s programming? How many times will we sing the word “badger”? Join us this week for “Movers and Shakers”!
When a bot’s series reaches a certain age, Hasbro’s need to sell new toys of them triggers strange and startling changes in their body — it’s time for Heatwave to get a new mode, for Reasons! But while he’s away going through some vague physiological process under Optimus Prime’s supervision, Doctor Morocco returns to wreck havoc on Griffin Rock with a souped-up weather machine (and not the yummy kind of soup)! Can the other Rescue Bots hold down the fort against storms, lightning, and FIRE TORNADOS? How does Heatwave’s new mode rank against a fire department Lamborghini? And Doc Greene’s tornado-stopping machine is called WHAT!? Join us this week for “Changes”!
