I enjoyed it. As Ralph says it's not written down.
Also, whatever horrors happened before Optimus landed on earth must have been spectacular.
I think he lurks in a cave full of dead friends.
I think you might be right. In my mind this is set after DOTM and Primes Kill Them All moment.
And then his My Friends Are Judging Me, Kill Them moment.
I like the setup, they basically stole the Town Called Eureka concept and moved it to an Island with alien robots. Its a good setup for a show that wont have Decepticons or a recognisable bad guy format.
I actually rather like Rescuebots on the basis of what I have seen. It is genuinely funny and a little bit witty, the characters are fun to be around. The character dynamics amongst the Burns family and between them and the Rescue Bots is quite good.
I am surprised by how little the show talks down to the audience as well - there is even a tiny smattering of science education for the kids in places. The animation is a little stilted in places ( a hazard when you work in Flash I guess) but arguably better than Armada or Cybertron.
It is also a positive show with heroic characters in it doing good deeds. If I had a young kid it would be exactly the sort of thing I'd want them to watch.
Can we have a badge of the Autobot-logo-in-life-ring logo please Hasbro/Pannini/anyone because it is a smashing visual?
(It also does better at making me want to buy toys than any of the live-action movies - those made me dislike the characters and make me less likely to want to buy their plastic forms, this makes me like its characters instead)
Are we ever going to get Rescuebots released on DVD in the UK? You would think Hasbro would have it alongside the Marvel Superhero squad DVD seeing Hasbro make the toys for that series (I know its been cancelled but they do take up lots of space in Smyths Toy shops more than the normal Marvel toys)
