Discussion Topic: Total Meltdown

Don't forget, a (sort-of) ~new episode of Transformers: Animated airs today.  Total Meltdown, is the 'missing' episode #5.  In case you missed it, the episode re-airs tomorrow morning on CartoonNetwork as well.  So, what did you think of the episode?

Although I missed a Decepticon presence, I think the concept of human upgrades and a villian who 'transforms' humans using steroid enhancements is a fantastic idea. I also think Promethius Black's accent and attitude are fantastic and I hope we see more of him.

^I dont. i hate human super-villians in a >"TRANSFORMERS"< show. i want to see much more autobot-decepticon action. i hope more for the second season.

hey guys, just got up and i feel like crap, anyways onto teh fun, i guess mixing steroids with some of bumblebee's stuff makes acid, (hmmmmmm.......gonna have to remember that...), lol

Didn't we already have a dicussion about this episode awhile back? :/
Perceptor said,  - 2008-02-09 10:37:45
Nope, we discussed Thrill of the Hunt on 1/19, and then TPR posted a link to Total Meltdown on YouTube links... So this is the first there's been a featured discussion on the episode...

I saw it on Youtube back then. I thought it was ok. I personally don't have a problem with human villains in the show. I think everyone should remember that human villains are not new in Transformers canon, especially G1. Now however human villains posing a threat is a little new, however they have only been one episode threats thus far.

Perceptor, when TPR posted the YouTube link, that's when the episode was discussed.

But for some reason, I'm looking through the news archives and the YouTube link discussion is nowhere to be found.

i love the end of the episode where bumblebee transforms back and forth he says "i got major skills"

Transformers without Decepticons is about as stupid as transformers who don't transform (remember the action masters). This episode was horrible!
Mechaburst said,  - 2008-02-09 21:10:49
Agreed! Come on when will the decepticons show up for god's sake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

lord megs wat games do u play on PS3?
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-02-09 22:11:30
Well, the next one, episode 9, has Blackarachnia. Is that satisfying enough for you haters?

(no offense intended)

I really like Promethius' accent too. What is it?

I'd prefer more Decepticons, but as much as I thought I'd be getting my hate on for human super-villians. They aint so bad.
Suzyprime said,  - 2008-02-10 14:17:43
It could have been better. Origins can be cumbersome, but I thought Meltdown's origin was a pretty by-the-book mad scientist origin (Rhodes is Bane from from Batman: TAS).

If all four Autobots can be beaten to a standstill by one roid-rage human, how are they going to take on Decepticons? Evidentially the series is setting them up to be major underdogs.

BTW, that line from Fanzone is going to get really tiresome after a while.

My little obsession:

This was a good episode. Meltdown is the only human villain I like so far. I've already seen this episode on YouTube so..... Also, I still think the Autobots in this show are way to hero like. Reminds me of TeenTitans and The Batman in a way..... Also, I got movie Cliffjumper and a cool TF T-shirt today at my local mall. One last thing, go visit it's a very cool fan site!

It was okay. I did like the reference to Sunstreaker in the part where Bumblebee is hit by Meltdown and he says to watch the paint job. All in all 10/10. Can't wait for the next one.
mechaburst said,  - 2008-02-11 15:50:11
PLEASE visit!!! I NEEEED people to visit! (please DON'T DELETE THIS COMMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) I realy didn't like this episode!
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-02-11 16:15:23
Mechaburst I have been to your site and I am not very pleased with it. It's not that I don't like it, (I don't hate it whatsoever) it's just that it contains lots of stuff from other places. See, a LARGE portion of that site is a bunch of links to other sites or news/info taken from other places. To me that's like, like... like, stealing. Yes, that's it, it's like you're taking things from other places and putting them on your site, rather than making up your own ideas. For instance, the BotCon page looks like the hompage was copied and pasted onto your site. Now I know you may have persission from those other sites to use there stuff, as evidenced by your sponsor links, but it's not very exciting seeing the exact same thing of something that's been seen elswhere.

A word of advice to make your site more appealing. Try to create your own galleries/character pages/news tips/etc. instead of using other people's work (even if you have their permission to use what they made). Try to differentiate your site from other sites. Like what you did with your forum (I haven't seen that one anywhere else, so I'm assuming you guys made that forum yourselves).

sabrblade, sabrblade, saberblade, I can see your delima but still you have to consider the fact that they tried, and thats all that matters. I mean, not everyone has as great documenting skills as I, lol, but that doesn't mean that you should look down upon them, just like what you said about my youtube videos its just a matter of opinion, and opinions are stupid, lol! And also, he didn't say that he wanted to impress people with it did he? So this could be an effortless thing. but nontheless, it isn't very good.........yet! btw, again here is my ps3 id: fanoftransformers , if anyone wants to chat or mail me or even challenge me to a game of guitar hero i'll be more than happy to serve. games that I currently own: call of duty 4, guitar hero 3.
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-02-11 17:45:40
I know they're trying. I never said that the site was bad, just that it could be better.

The way they're promoting it fooled me into thinking it was this "awesome, spectacular, one-of-a-kind," site. Yet I was saddened to find that it's just links to several other more popular and well-known sites.

I guess it's just not my taste in TF sites.

And Lord Megs, your right. Some opinions are stupid. Just look at how many people hate TF: Animated. XD

Megatron's line about an inside job was kinda funny. i'm surprised proffesor Sumdac calls Megatron his friend when Megatron yells at him.
