Wow. A villain that was threatening. What are the odds? How Evil is Transformers: Robots in Disguise (2015) Episode 10?
This episode starts with Jazz arriving at the base. And then the antlion-like Decepticon, Ped attacks the Autobot base in the Junkyard. The team gets their tails handed to them in the first 10 minutes of the episode. And they didn’t even split up, this time! Okay, didn’t see that one coming. Ped steals a good portion of their energon cubes, and escaped underground. The team follows him and they decide to use the tried in true method of splitting up… If you’ve been reading my articles, you already know how this is going to end. So, after splitting up they get their cans kicked… again.
Upon regrouping and licking their wounds, they decide to use the last of their energon as bait to lure out Ped. This plan works, but Ped digs a sinkhole underneath the team, causing them to sink into the ground. Rusty and his dad fight off Ped using a crane with a magnet… Yes, you did read that right. They knock him down long enough for Sideswipe to save them. This buys Bumblebee and Jazz enough time to escape the hole and defeat Ped.
Ped made one heck of a villain for this episode. He got a lot of screen-time and he gave the team a lot of trouble. How should I rate this episode? While Ped was cool, there were still a few inconsistencies. Jazz is supposed to be some bigshot that Bumblebee knows from the good old days, but he never once appeared in Prime. Bumblebee, please stop trying to replace “Autobots Rollout” with tasteless puns. The bad pun replacements aren’t helping you or the show at all. Overall the episode was the best one so far. I’d say it’s about as evil as a Killer Robot Army. Well, that’s all I have for you today. Thanks for letting me waste your time, people.
Keep It Classy,
