I just got to watch the newest episode, "Sound and Fury". Wow!!! Soundwave was great! SOOOO many G1 references in that episode! Soundwave's voice (perfect!), the fact that he used the phrase "...operation...", his box that had a striking resemblance to his G1 form, and Kremzeek!
Also, since I haven't posted about the last few episodes, "Along Came a Spider" was great! Even though I saw it coming from a mile away, I loved the Elita-One/Blackarachnia twist!

I started watching this just the other week. At first I was really bored and agree that T.F. fighting generic human villains was lame. The last episode really brought my love back for the show though. Sound-wave is by far one of my favorite D-cons ever! The way they made him come about made for an interesting story. I like how he made his choice to pledge himself with the D-cons. The animation was at first goofy looking. Now I'm trying to convince myself not to buy the toys when they come out. Let's face it the ninja/motorcycle guy is badarse. Bumblebee is goofy fun. Sound-wave is not defeated and we should see more of him later. Ratchet is lame. Optimist Prime hasn't grown on me yet. The big green A-bot is ok, but nothing special. Megatron is flat out lame but funny. Blackaracnia is too kewl to be true. Starscream is alright, but needs to start having a bigger role. Dinobots need more expansion (another of my personal favs). If I forgot any it's because they obviously need to have more air time.
I can see potential for this show. I am amazed that I find it interesting seems how my initial response was quite the opposite.
DoNp is right on the money. Soundwaves voice is right on cue with G1. Beautifuly done.

You know, I'm not much of a fan of new Optimus, either. He's just... i don't know.... eh. Optimus Primal was a great character because of his inexperience and the fact that he'd mess up now and then... but they overdo that with Animated Op. I feel like the A-bots would be pretty much OK without him. I still want the figure, though.
It may sometimes feel like a comedy but at least it's a cool comedy. A lot of the moments of the show are great. My initial impression was that it would ok but I really like it so far. Can't wait for some of the figures.
I missed out on the last 3 episodes, but thanks to YouTube I was able to get caught up on everything today.
-Mission Accomplished was good, I liked Ironhide's cameo at the beginning.
-Garbage In, Garbage Out was hilarious! Anybody else know that Wreck-Gar was played by Weird Al in that episode? I thought he did a great job, and I liked his "Dare To Be Stupid" comment. I also liked Spike and Carly's cameo.
-Velocity was good too, that blue car has to be Blurr!
I don't mind all of the human interaction in this series, I think it's a nice touch. It would be boring it they were all normal humans, but since they've already gained some human super villains, it helps to keep things interesting.
