Posted by:
Perceptor at 2008-07-05 9:48 am

It's happy and sad, but for the foreseeable future, our being spoiled with weekly new episodes of Transformers Animated is coming to and end.   The season 2 finale episodes, "A Bridge Too Close" parts 1 & 2 make their U.S. debut on CartoonNetwork!   Wow, I cannot wait! 

What did you think?!

I got to stop spoiling it for myself by watching it on Youtube! This is almost the best ep. I hope they get renewed for a 3rd season!
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-07-05 10:38:59
Darn both YTV and CN. They both cut off the dialogue at the ending argument between Megs and Screamer. I so wanted to hear it, but NO, both channels HAD to advertise their other shows. >:(

Anyway, now we can finally say that Sari is an android/cyborg and nobody have a problem with it. She not a robot, she's an android or cyborg, big difference.

Autobutt said,  - 2008-07-05 11:50:14
the best of the series yet! a couple thing i would like to mention:
-When the Constucticons became official cons, their eyes turned red and their color scheme became green
-Shockwave again is always on Meg's computer screen
-Starscream's clone kicking the original Starscreams body (betraying his leader COUGH COUGH) on the ground...priceless!

For personally me these two episodes were really great. Not only was it full of botfights, deceptive Decepticons, and even had really good plotlining but it had (happy whirl) seekers! After 24 years we finally have six seekers, and there's finally a given reason as to why they all resemble eachother. Thrust got gut out for sunstorm, but the personallities were brilliantly laid out. And I'm really glad that Dirge finally makes an appearance being the seeker with the least appearances in general. But now he finally makes his, er her, triumphant return.

Does anyone remember that Thundercracker and Skywarp along with blurr fly thorugh the space bridge. Maybe it is another clue that they will go to Cybertron, getting their own sparks being the real Thundercracker and Skywarp.

Go Ego maniac!

Wonderful, perfekt, bad ass episode!!! Only ONE thing that wasnt thaaaaaaat good: remember the scene of 'rise of the constructicons' in wich prowl threw his two shurikens at Scrapper?... well it got repeated! It was the same scene as when prowl threw his shurikens at Lugnut in 'A Bridge too close'.
Breakbeamer said,  - 2008-07-05 17:50:29
i thought that "A bridge too close" was one of the best animated episodes it had good humor and the starscreams were funny too that was one sick episode i mean what other tf fan would not want to see the fight between megs and ss but the fact that megatron and optimus prime fighting together was not likely but then megatron hit prime and i thought good well overall BEST tf animated episode so far
sean said,  - 2008-07-05 18:15:34
any word on season 3
Jumpercliff said,  - 2008-07-05 18:32:14
Now that's going out with a bang!
TFA Rules said,  - 2008-07-05 22:17:32
The fem-bot clone of SS is his femmie side LOL
Mirage2006 said,  - 2008-07-05 22:44:04
This was exciting. I liked that they introduced Blurr and Omega Supreme in this. I wonder what happened to Blurr after he and the two clones went through the space bridge? I also wonder what will happen to Shockwave now that he has been discovered to be Longarm Prime? And what is the deal with Sari? I think she may be Cybertronian also. I want to know what anybody else thinks.
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-07-05 22:48:51
Sari is an android/cyborg, not a robot, an android or cyborg.
Scorpomike said,  - 2008-07-06 01:38:48
Is there going to be an Omega Supreme Figure? I sure hope so.
BB cant sign on using a wii said,  - 2008-07-06 03:34:55
Sari is an android. For if she were a cyborg she would have some cybornetic components supporting the biological part(s) of her, like Cyborg from Teen Titans. But in this case Sari is like the character Data from Star Trek. Completely cybernetic with a human like exostructure.

And Skorpomike there will be a figuer of Omega Supreme i'm pretty sure i remember someone making a posting about it a while back.
wasp3000 said,  - 2008-07-06 09:53:25
Do any of you think that omega supreme and blur are still alive, because at the end of the show you see megatron and starscream whom went in the space bridge?
Bumblebee said,  - 2008-07-06 11:56:21
I believe Dr. Sumdac built Sari with human technology, but she ended up getting part of Megatron's spark when Dr. Sumdac found him. I loved the episode.
PlasmaEnergyGod said,  - 2008-07-06 13:04:40
Great Episode!!! Did anyone get too emotional when Omega Supreme awoke affraid & unsure of himself, only to sacrifice himself AGAIN... great writing. Reminds me of Tigerhawk's short but memorable screentime.
shanewaldo said,  - 2008-07-06 17:33:51
that was the best ep ever!!! thing that sux is that omega supreme makes an awesome comeback as the ark only to get destroyed wtf!!

and sari being an android nice ending completely a bomb drop
they should put astrotrain in season 3 and a shockwave/longarm prime action figure
deceptifan said,  - 2008-07-06 20:06:42
They were the best yet and it's possible with Megatron and Starscream out there something, maybe a black hole,SS's allspark fragments, whatever, they could fuse and become Galvatron! That would be a great reason for him to go insane.
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-07-06 20:18:01
I found the words of the ending argument between Megs and Screamer:

Megatron: Stop STARING at me.
Starscream: No, you stop staring at ME!
Megatron: Do you think I actually WANT to spend the rest of eternity gazing at your unsightly visage?
Starscream: Trust me, your visage is no picnic either. And your face is ugly too.
Megatron: Oh, someone just take me offline now.
Starscream: What do you think I've been trying to do for the last four million stellar cycles?!?! AHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! It's funny, really, when you think about it. Tragic, but FUNNY! AHAHAHAHAHA!
Megatron: ...oh, shut up.
Bruticus_42 said,  - 2008-07-06 21:00:14
If you re-watched it today, you will see the bantor between the two in it's entirety. Priceless, as someone else has stated. maybe now that SS lost his body, he will become G1 colors now. And if he did, why, oh why did I buy the SS toy now! Grrr!!
Darkton said,  - 2008-07-07 03:08:04

10 points to anyone who can read that! Now...what does that leave little Mr. Fanfic Writer (AKA me) with to make my stuff...hmm.

Cookie to the Animated team if they bring back Megatron as Galvatron!
Slashwing said,  - 2008-07-07 08:37:28
Speaking of fanfics, my brain has finally made synapse and I now Know what´s missing in TF animated: Japanese characters! I´m currently writing something a la titans east with a small party working in tokio the Japformers in this story are: Star saber geeky leader whith Ryu style moves,Grandus the Sumo-bot Sky Garry cool gunman and Minerva the groups´ girl who is infatuated with Bumblebee.
The villains right now are overlord with Dark Energon techniques kind like akuma, and Deathsaurus with double robeast evil fists.
TriPredRavage said,  - 2008-07-07 14:14:56
I'm really kinda upset that we still have no idea what the deal is with Sari. I know that they left it open in hopes of a season three, but I fear TFA going the way of ReBoot and Sonic the Hedgehog SatAM where they make a cliffhanger and aren't permitted to come back for another season. At the very least, though, they could reveal the secret through the comics that are supposedly going to be in continuity to the series.

And to top it all of, the cliffhanger was really bad! The way it's like *Dramatic Music, step away from Sumdac like he's doc Frankenstien, kill dramatic music* "We need to talk." He says it like it's no big deal that she's got robot parts stickin' out of her. That really upset me.
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-07-07 15:19:05
It's not like that TPR. They've confirmed that Sari's identity will be revealed in due time. This series won't cuffer the way SatAM did. That was due to ABC's new guy in charge didn't like the show, and it couldn't compete with MMPR's popularity at the time, and so it was cancelled.

TF:A won't be cancelled like SatAM because its ratings are doing great, and CN likes it.

I can't compare TF:A to ReBoot because I don't remeber what happened to it. It was so long ago.
I bet you they will go the Unicron route and have Megatron reformated and meld him with Starscream's head making him unstable and insane.

[[following message by Autobot Jazz: Again the dumb shit happend, that i can eddit this comment which isnt even mine... cant anyone fix this???!!!]]and by the way im gay.
Black Starscream said,  - 2008-07-07 22:29:13
I still wanna know which side of starscream Dirge is supposed to be.
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-07-07 23:44:50
Dirge? Their wasn't a clone colored like Dirge. These are the only clones that we saw in these episodes:

Coward Starscream - Skywarp
Egomaniac Starscream - Thundercracker
Sycophant Starscream - Sunstorm
Liar Starscream - Ramjet
Female Starscream - Generation 2 Ramjet

As for what part the female is, I think she's what bit of sanity and logic Starscream has left, cuz she seemed smarter and a better tactian than him. As to why she's female I don't know.
Black Starscream said,  - 2008-07-08 01:18:27
Hmm, i was certain she was Dirge. I doubt animated would really use anything G2. And I thought the fem starscream looked blue, not purple.
Perceptor said,  - 2008-07-08 01:46:05
OMG, I have so much to say about this amazing, awesome, spectacular episode!!!

Several months ago I was jogging on my treadmill, watching the TFA intro movie. It got to the part where Optimus said to the ship, "TeletranOne, activate emergency defense system, code name Omega..." Then it dawned on me, what exactly was he trying to do? That line of dialog seemed oddly out of place but OMG! What if it was foreshadowing? What if he was trying to transform their ship into Omega Supreme!? I told my theory to my bro, and he agreed it was possible, the 'debate' then turned to whether O.S. would be "born" throu the allspark in the same way that Soundwave or the Dinobot came to be? Or whether the kew would simply be used to revive O.S. HOLY $#!+~! I couldn't have asked for more. Not only was I right (the key was used to revive not create) but YEEEES they even made great effort to ensure that fans interpret this Omega Supreme as THE Omega Supreme from G1 He spoke just like him. He acted just like him. THIS is now THE toy I am most excited to purchase! BRING HIM ON!!!!

>> Sari is a cyborg?
No way dude! I still think she's a pretender! Clearly, she is a pretender. The only question is was the outer flesh part ever some particular human before or are we talking all original creation of Dr. Sundac?

>> what about the fembot Starscream?
I think she's the part of Starscream that would be a good leader. So how about this for an origin story?!?! What does the fandom think of a Skywarp, Thundercracker... as components of Starscream, formed from segments of his allspark fragment! Are fans still excited to buy a Skywarp toy, Would you be happy to buy 4+ recolors of the same toy? My answer is YES! What does everyone else think?

Sabrblade said,  - 2008-07-08 09:57:11
Its about time you spoke up about this episode, Perceptor. I too thought it was cool how the ship was Omega. However, they went one step further in your theory. The Key wasn't the only thing that revived him, the AllSpark fragments were placed in his spark chamber as a replacement for his spark (like how Starscream's fragment is replacing his spark).

So, you think Sari's a Pretender? Which kind? The Marvel comics kind or the Masterforce kind? There is a big difference between the two.

Personally, I think she's an android. I used to think she was either a cyborg or an android, but now I'm convinced she's an android.

Also, if you scroll up to my previous post, you'll see what part of Starscream I think the G2 Ramjet Female Starscream is.
Autobutt said,  - 2008-07-08 10:37:07
I just realized, with the found Allspark fragments inside Omega Supreme and with Omega Supreme being lost...

Also if they want to keep Omega alive, then the Allspark fragments are going to have to be permenantly inside him right?
Slashwing said,  - 2008-07-08 11:16:56
I would like a female Starscream toy =)
I said,  - 2008-07-09 18:45:27
if sumdac made robots from parts of megatron, that means sari is megatrons daughter :0 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

also i was wondering why sari didnt have a mother.
or maybe she was a human and here mother and her died and sumdac rebuilt sari!!!!(like megaman with dr.light)
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-07-10 10:17:48
Well, originally it was Sari that she was adopted. So Sumdac, being single and haveing no other way to get a child of his own, could've adopted Sari and still not have a wife (at least, that's what she would think before her "identity crisis").
Black Starscream said,  - 2008-07-10 14:39:43
Technically this means Sari is like a first generation Earthern cybertronian, since she's reverse engineered from Megatron
Blitzwing said,  - 2008-07-14 09:15:56
I guess it depends on your point of view what the story is behind Sarri and the Clones. I thought both the episodes rocked(Though I'm not sure Blitzwing and Starscream[My two "Show-time accurate" identities] would agree),and TPR,the reason they didn't tell you more about Sarri's robot parts is simply to get you to keep tuning in on whatever days of the week the show runs,hoping to find out the answer. Thus comes the advantages of a TV schedual,because leaving you in suspence is a standard TV marketing techniche.
Oh dear,I'm starting to sound like my characture,lol!

Haven't heard much about Season three,exept a couple things you might have already heard. Arcee is due to make another apperance,and Peceptor(Maybe),his first. Perhaps we will see a rejoicing post from a CERTAIN Lucas brother(*Cough Cough*)
