Due to family stuff we are putting out a prerecorded filler episode. One where Rob and David ask, “Who’s the master?” Berry Gordy’s The Last Dragon is a trip to a NYC that doesn’t exist anymore, maybe never existed, and for once is not Toronto pretending to be NYC but actually NYC. Because of course once again Rob watched a movie from David’s childhood and they felt the need to talk about it. So this is a nostalgia trip to a movie that’s nostalgic for Brucepoiltation, blaxploitation, Motown music, and the Shogun of Harlem. Join us (well, two of us) this week for “The Last Dragon”!
An injured Steeljaw shows up on the Autobots’ doorstep saying he was betrayed by another Decepticon, Scorponok, but when Bumblebee takes Strongarm and Grimlock to find this bigger menace, the wolf uses some sleight-of-hand to get loose in the henhouse! Can Fixit, Russell, and Denny stop him from freeing his old partners in crime? Isn’t it kind of cheating to do stage magic in animation? And WHY IS STEELJAW SO SEXY!? Join us this week for a little “Misdirection”!
Grimlock feels insecure about everyone thinking he’s a not-smart-bot, but when Fixit tries to help him by uploading a study guide into his brain, the Dinobot accidentally ends up way too smart! Can they find a way to get “several thousand times the sum total of all human knowledge” out before his brain melts!? Haven’t we seen this plot, like, a couple times before? And what Simpsons episodes does this episode’s Decepticon have us quoting? Join us this week for “Brainpower”!
The Away Team has made it from the Arctic to the desert, so now it’s time for some BROWN as they don desert camo to track down Razorpaw and his Mini-Cons Swelter and Glacius! But will Optimus Prime’s weakened condition hold them back — and will Windblade’s determination to protect him make things worse? What is this Decepticon’s deal with eating people? What surprising veteran of not just Transformers cartoons but Big Two comics wrote this episode, and why isn’t it better? And who decided it was okay to make it all so BROWN? Join us this week for “Cover Me”!
When the team finds a sad little “failed” kaiju, they begin to question whether they should be fighting them at all! Knight and the Second want to kill it before it becomes a threat, but Gauma promises to keep an eye on it — and the creature promptly escapes and grows big enough to threaten the city! Can the rest of the team stop it with Yume and Chise trapped in the mall? Can Yomogi control the kaiju? Will the Kaiju Eugenicists enjoy their day off? Join us this week for SSSS.Dynazenon episode 8, “What Is This Wavering Emotion?”!
Crazybolt and Slicedice return! But when Strongarm accidentally endangers some humans trying to apprehend them, she decides it’s time to turn in her Decepticon Hunter — she’s suspended! Can Bumblebee convince her to cut herself some slack before the Decepticons burn down Crown City State Park in the name of speed? Or will he have to tow Grimlock around from now on? Join us this week for “Suspended”!
The Bee Team is back in action when they find a new Decepticon stealing a strange, rare ore from a quarry near Crown City! But what could this Saberhorn possibly want with a metal used for starships? Which Decepticons decided to have a party and not invite Steeljaw? Will Russell’s sudden fixation on collecting trophies get him squished? And who’s been shilling NFTs this time? Join us this week for “Metal Meltdown”!
When the Kaiju Eugenicists retreat with their kaiju instead of fighting to the death, the Dynazenon team decides to spend the night kicking around the waterfront, waiting for it to return. In the downtime, can Koyomi work through his feelings for Inamoto after reluctantly saving her husband? Can Yume accept Yomogi’s help learning what happened to her sister? And can Knight and the Second convince Gauma that they’re there to help Dynazenon before the kaiju returns? Join us this week for SSSS.Dynazenon episode 7, “What’s Our Reason for Coming Together?”
With Optimus and his Away Team in the Arctic, Bumblebee has to stop Overload and his new Mini-Con friends with only Strongarm and Grimlock’s help! But will he let his history with Overload distract him from the mission? Will the Away Team get new toys to go with their new Arctic color schemes? And will Sideswipe learn A Very Important Lesson — or just get them all killed? Jon us this week for “Overloaded, Part 2”!
And we’re back to Robots in Disguise (2015) with the start of season 2! With the Autobots’ roster growing, Bumblebee decides to split the party and form an Away Team to hunt down Decepticons far from Crown City. But when they’re sent after a Decepticon in the Arctic, will Optimus Prime’s unwillingness to accept his own weakened conditioned doom their mission? Will the remaining Autobots be enough to defend the scrapyard when it’s attacked by another Con? And hey, remember those charming little gremlin Mini-Cons from the shorts? This episode’s writer sure did! Join us this week for “Overloaded, Part 1”!
