After an awesome week, we return to a not so awesome show. Let’s answer the one important question, shall we? How Evil Is Transformers: Robots in Disguise (2015) Episode 5?
This episode starts off exactly where you might expect – with the team fighting… again. Bumblebee, has also developed an “I Must Be Like Optimus Complex,” where he badly mimics Optimus in order to bring his team under control. It never works.
The episode picks up after a news report reveals that a cryo-pod has been found by humans, and taken to a museum. The team sets off to stop the pod from opening with the humans leading the way. Upon arriving, the humans do their thing and get the bots in unnoticed. Everything is going smooth until the bots decide to act on their time-honored strategy of splitting up… What’s it called when you do the same thing over and over, expecting a different result? Oh, that’s right, insanity.
Their strategy blows up in their faces like it always does. Terashock the Buffaloid tear the team and the museum a new one. If that doesn’t sound bad enough the bots also get spotted by humans. After Optimus talks to Bumblebee, he straightens out and begins to lead the team his way… like he’s been doing on every episode before this. After some cowboy inspired antics, they corral the metal beast and ride off into the sunset… no, seriously. That was from the show.
This episode really wasn’t too bad, but Bumblebee’s little complex should’ve been in an earlier episode. It came out of nowhere, and why is the team always splitting up? It never pays off for them, even when they have an advantage. In retrospect, I’ll still say this episode is about as evil as a Super Hero. Well, that’s all I have for you today. Thanks for letting me waster your time, people.
Keep It Classy,
