RESCUE BOTS, EPISODE 66: TIME AFTER TIME
(If you're lost you can look - and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you - I'll be waiting
Time after time
)




”You kids grow up too fast. Sometimes I want to go back in time and keep you little forever.”

When it comes to time loop plots, I think the crazier it drives the main character, the better. My personal template for time loop episodes is Xena’s “Been There, Done That.” When Xena is stuck repeating the same day, she drives herself crazy trying to figure out the cause of it all. It reaches a head around the last major act when Xena wakes up kicking and screaming after she assumed she got everything down pat. She goes ballistic.

Such chaotic behavior is unfortunately not prominent in “Time After Time”, though it’s not in Cody’s nature to throw a temper tantrum. Still, the plot is near as entertaining as I was hoping it would. For one, the episode only loops back a day a mere three times; the first and second essentially the first and second act of the episode. It’s a slow paced episode and the tension is less remarkable, though I appreciate the clever use of semi-red herring by letting the audience assume the clock tower is the cause of the time loop. I say “semi” because the clock tower does play a part, triggering the pocket watch so only Cody realizes he’s traveling back in time“Time After Time” is boldly clear on the pocket watch’s importance, but their effort to mix a familiar twist is admirable.

What I don’t get is the mixed reactions from the Burns family when Cody tells them he traveled through time. Cody traveled back in time twice, one of which involves the entire Burns siblings and another that brought back a needlessly giant elephantine sized truck. And the Burns for some reason remain skeptical? Seriously? Frankie believes because she traveled back to 1939 with Cody, though she disappointingly doesn’t point this out. None of these really harm the episode or anything, but Rescue Bots generally has been good with its continuity that to do something contradicting is a bit of a head scratcher.

Otherwise, it's another standard Rescue Bots episode...or it would be except the ending happened.



Awww yeah! Now we’re talking! Since Cody nabbed this from Barney, it’s easy to theorize he took it out when handling personal items before Morocco was jailed. Knowing Barney though, it’s just as likely Morocco planted the damn watch right in front of him knowing Cody would swipe it…somehow. I kind of want to lean with the first because the latter would require a bit of foresight that I’m not sure even Morocco would possess, but any foreshadowing of Morocco means something big is going to happen soon.

“Time After Time’s” does get a point for Charlie’s lament. Cody declines his father’s invitation to take him to school which hits Charlie with a locomotive-sized realization that his youngest is growing up. Charlie handles it with grace (I mean, he does have three adult children), but I can’t imagine how hard it is no matter how many kids you have to see them grow up and adjust on their own. Their moments are short, but I think it accumulates a lot of Cody’s growth in the show. He’s proven his reliability and capability as a future first responder and it’s something Charlie encourages to its fullest. Charlie may wish for a time when he can still cuddle Cody, but he’s sensible enough to give Cody space when he needs it. Cody’s gonna need it; puberty is not kind.

BONUS OBSERVATIONS


DON’T CRY OVER SPILLED COFFEE:



What is up with that coffee spill? Somehow Dani overfilling the cup managed to split the stream into four cardinal directions with perfect 90 degree angels. Does gravity shift differently in Griffin Rock? Did the moon decide to troll with the Burns family and moved the liquid around in such a direction hoping they would figure out something is wrong despite this being the least weird shit in Griffin Rock?

SQUIRREL, VOICED BY ABU APPARENTLY: Because that’s what the squirrel sounds like even though actual squirrels do not sound like that at all. It does sound strikingly like Abu and I know Frank Welker specifically voiced the monkey. And we all know who Frank Welker is known for in the Transformers fandom. There’s nothing in the credits, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they brought him over to record a few animal noises (something he's also pretty damn good at.)

KITTEN TALKS: Boulder lightly reprimanding Mr. Pettypaws is right up there with Heatwave and the baby and Blades hugging Bee as the cutest darn thing in the entire show.

The Dandy Robot plus human thing, too by neoyi
The Dandy Robot plus human thing, too
I don't show enough of Prima, the human or human-ish main character of The Dandy Robot. He serves as the series' deuteragonist and love interest for Marine, traveling alongside the dandy prince and his pet alligator Iolite in their adventure.

Compared to the spoiled, prim and proper prince of robots, Prima is a vagabond. He travels from place to place just because he wants to, appreciating the various culture and environment that the galaxy has to offer. He takes up numerous jobs and employs that would have him to keep him going and often teaches Marine how to survive outside the comforts of the castle walls. Prima helps whoever is in need with as much neutral affiliation as possible simply out of a genuine sense of goodwill (which is how he got stuck with Marine.) And lastly, Prima notoriously flirts with any guys he meets - strange alien creature or not - with the only rules being that it's no strings attached, male (or what passes for male), legal, and consenting.

Prima doesn't speak a lot about his life and tries to detach himself from anyone and anything he meets. It's like he's running away from something...

ROBOTS IN DISGUISE (2015) TALKING POINTS




I figure with a new Transformers show now officially out in the US, I can arrange a proper reintroduction to anyone who has recently started watching me. For those of you who are new to my blog, hi, I’m Neo Yi. I write individual episodes of recent Transformers shows because I clearly don’t have better things to do. I wrote a bunch for Transformers Animated, Prime, and Rescue Bots, the latter ongoing because the show is ongoing. You can find the full list here. I hope they’re endlessly amusing for you as I get a kick out of writing them.

FYI, I will be reviewing individual episodes of Transformers: Robots in Disguise that are currently airing right now. I am going to write reviews based on the US airdates, mostly to give me breathing space. Having to review the eight or so episodes that came out in the Australia would only drive me crazy. However, I am not going to write a review for the first two episodes (the pilot) because I recently wrote a Toonzone review for it and I am going to pimp it as much as I can. Please check it out here if anyone is curious on how I feel for the show.

That said, some bonus observations from the first two episodes that I didn’t already write in my review (so if you feel I missed something, I might have already said it on that article.)

*Out of the five main bots, Grimlock’s the one who surprised me the most in terms of likability. Generally, I am disinterested in The Big Guy character archetype. I figured at best he’d be one of the last of the main five I’d be getting a toy of, but his “I want to fight!” attitude and enthusiasm ended up infectious enough for me to buy his toy a couple days after I watched the episode. A good portion of this is due to Khary Payton’s excellent voice work; nailing the blunt attitude with a sense of good, wholehearted fun. Behind Strongarm, I think this guy has the best shot of being my favorite character.

*For that matter, I thought Fixit’s speech impediment would get really old (though it could the further I watch), but it was largely harmless. It doesn’t endear me to it or anything, but I’m totally cool with it.

*My review didn’t emphasize just how much I utterly, utterly ADORE Underbite. He’s so over-the-top and beyond-the-impossible hammy as fuck. It’s the most amazing, glorious thing ever. His ”…CUZ I ATE IT!” line is way funnier to me than I ever imagined it’d be. I love him, I love him so much. Also, his little tail wags when he’s giddy is the cutest shit ever.

*I appreciate Bumblebee’s sympathy towards Sideswipe because he understands; he’s been there. He’s gone down that road before and even if he wasn’t quite as rambunctious as Sideswipe (at least what I saw in Prime anyway), Bee still had to deal with another young upshot: Smokescreen. He understands, yo. He understands, yo. Frankly, I think just hanging around Smokescreen gave Bee the immense patience needed to deal with all the crap in Robots in Disguise. Bee's "So Done" face could power a trip to Jupiter.

*I find it kind of weird that Bee had to sneak into a private sector of the museum despite his fame as part of Optimus’ soldier. The episodes are pretty clear about this, so why the curator or security couldn’t give a free access pass to him is questionable. I mean, it’s not like they had to write in the extra robots who aren’t going in the space bridge to avoid any writing hassle, they could have just handed Bee a card and told him, “You served Optimus, we trust ya.”

*Yes, I am worried Optimus’ subplot could overrun the general story, but I meant it when I said his current position is clever. He can chime in as the fortune cookie that he is whenever Bee needs a pick-me-up and do whatever mystic quest the universe decided they had to slap onto him because it’s refuses to give Optimus the sweet, sweet death he’s been longing for 31 years. The universe is a prick. (I’m not going to lie though: bringing Optimus back from the dead would make me cringe and I’d say it even if he was my favorite character; cheap deaths is one of my hated narratives.)

*Speaking of soul crushing, Billy the Breakfast Beaver will be in my nightmares for the rest of my life.



I feel so empty inside.


*Okay, so I can’t be the only one raising an eyebrow at the weird animation choice between Underbite and the bird, right? I mean, the entire cast is rendered to look cel-shaded except this one little bird who for some reason is traditionally animated (flash animated?)



I don’t get it? Is it more practical this way?

*The show has a smorgasbord of good lines, but I think my personal favorite comes from Bumblebee when he uses one of the weapons Fixit made for him—”Fixit, you are my favorite minicon.” —only to go on the fritz seconds later—”Fixit, I’m rethinking my rankings.” Dear GOD,  he has so much venom in his voice.

*I actually did not consider the idea of Strongarm as a teenager. Sideswipe I immediately got because he’s the rebellious youth type, but I always assumed Strongarm would be closer to Bee’s age, but with none of the war experience, hence her “newbie rank.” So color me surprised.

I think that’s about it. And now for your regularly scheduled program:



RESCUE BOTS, EPISODE 65: ALL BOTS GREAT AND SMALL
(When do I get my ridiculously show accurate Rescue Bots toys with shoehorned subliminal messages? Yvan eht NoiJ)




”A Lilliputian Revolution.”

I feel like I need to specify a certain scene in “Thieves Like Us” because it truly captures the spirit of the demented universe that is Rescue Bots. Like this scene legitimately explains everything about the show and it’s a-freakin-mazing.

To understand in context, the Burns family is to be awarded for their years of services in the mainland. On the same day, Mayor Luskey starts a Robot Appreciation Week (probably the only smart move the man’s made in office—I’d totally go), forcing the Rescue Bots to stand put until the Burns return. After the Burns accept their award, the family boat gets caught in a tangle of kelp. This in itself is pretty bad because it means the Rescue Bots has to keep still even when danger is afoot that requires their assistant. After losing their only tool to untangle it, Dani dives below to loosen the kelp.The Burns is further hampered after by the arrival of a group of literally hundreds of jellyfish.

And before any of that, the episode opens with a brief thunderstorm that creates a mudslide. It’s like God himself decided to join the disastrous Griffin Rock isle to keep it in a perpetual state of misery for which there is no escape.

Setting aside events performed by acts of Divine, “Thieves Like Us” is fairly standard. There’s several amusing tongue-in-cheek lampshading to the toyetic nature of Rescue Bots through the tiny toys the Mayor is swindling to the general public, but nothing that really stands out. If anything, there’s something horrifying about Luskey inserting a not-so-subtle messages to coax people into reelecting him. I mean, little children are seen playing with them.

The Bots’ dilemma also makes no damn sense.For the sake of the Bots’ alien origins; they don’t “function” unless their human hosts give a command. Buuuut a previous episode (I think it’s “The Alien Invasion of Griffin Rock”) had the Burns actually excusing an act they didn’t command as a sort of emergency auto-piloting that’s been “programmed” into them should the Burns be absent during a mission. I mean, having the Bots risk their secret identity while the Burns family is elsewhere is a good plot, but ya know, I’m just saying, kinda been solved.
:star::star::star: OUT OF FIVE STARS



BONUS OBSERVATIONS

”TAKE YOUR TV OUT TO A GLORIOUS AFTERNOON OUT IN THE SUNSHINE”: People already do that, Huxley, it’s called tablets and smartphones.

TEAM PLAYER: Charlie is quick to include Cody into the team when they go to get their award. It’s a great leap from the very first episode; Cody no longer feels left out because he’s too young to be an official first responder and Charlie is supportive of the role he’s had keeping the team informed.

CAN ROBOTS FEEL ITCHINESS? Well, Blades did which is weird because they’re robots. Then again, they can feel and experience pain, so justified???

IT WAS TOO OBVIOUS THAT IT WASN’T OBVIOUS AT ALL: Luskey accuses Doc for the faulty robots because he’s gotten genre savvy enough to know when shit happens, 95% of the time it’s Doc. For once, Green is not the accidental perpetrator of this heinous act.

ADULT JUICE: I have no idea why, but I am endlessly amused by Evan and Myles’ drink of choice: fruits and veggie drinks. Obviously you can’t give them beer cans or anything, but these two are rebellious enough to perform petty crimes that they just have to celebrate with the world’s tamest drinks. It’s cute.



And speaking of food, Kade shoves shrimp into his fire hat at the end of the episode. GROSS.

BEST LINE: ”If Dani were here, we’d be kicking tail rotor. Well, she would, I’d be taking names.”

Also, Blades’ imitation of Kade is funnier than it should be.

RUNNER-UP:

KADE: Which do guys think is my best side for the magazine cover?
EVERYONE: Your backside.

Pwned.  

WORST LINE: ”Way to knock off those knock offs.”

GO SIT IN THE CORNER, KADE.

RESCUE BOTS, EPISODE 64: THE ATTACK OF HUMUNGADO
(Look, just because I’m Asian doesn’t mean I’m going to say “Gojira.”)




“Attack of Humungado” is not just any silly monster movie, it’s a Kaiju classic! Which means it was made to be seen in a drive-in, big screen, lots of snack, and NO TALKING!”

I think it’s actually kind of cute to see Kade obsessing over something that might not necessarily be up his alley.I mean, it involves a giant radioactive reptile stomping on Tokyo like his big playground, so violence is probably a big factor on why it appeals to that lunkhead. And Godzilla is a pop cultural icon that anyone knows by name alone, but for a series of films that can easily sit aside other nerdy pastimes like Star Trek and whatnot, Kade’s adoration for the Humungado movies is a nice little addition to his personality. Course, this only proves the reach Godzilla has on a lot of people, so hey. They don’t emphasize it too much, but some of Kade’s knowledge is enough to keep the monsters at bay. He’s just obsessed enough to help the team contain Humungado and Ravenous, but dense enough that he doesn’t quite get the nuances behind the films (I bet he’d be real surprised if Humungado’s existence likely owes its life to the criticism of nuclear weaponry Godzilla was originally intended for.)

Otherwise, there isn’t much to say about “The Attack of Humugado”; Doc messes up with another ambitious invention and the Bots/Burns work together to fix the mess. Some admirable traits from Blades pop up when he dives in to keep the monsters at bay, but it’s routine. I guess they tried to squeeze in a commentary about how close friends and family will often get into tiffs. There might also be a lesson about enjoying the classics or something, but I’d probably get a lot more kick out of it if I cared about the Kaiju genre, but I don’t, so eh. Frankly, I think what I got out of this episode is that Doc’s version of “3D movie” proves 3D is a stupid gimmick and i dont like it 3d sucks go away forever.

Er, I like the monster design for Humungado. I think it was pretty cool of the writers to find a way to bring out the Dinobots in unique situations like these because they can’t just whip these out for rescue missions since those alt modes are a secret (for some reason) and because, well, dinosaurs and first responding don’t really go hand-in-hand.
:star::star::star: OUT OF FIVE STARS



BONUS OBSERVATIONS


NOT A SINGLE SPECK OF CRUMB, NOT EVEN FOR A MOUSE: Heatwave tells Kade and Cody not to get popcorn under his seat. You see both Kade and Cody dropping it all over on top of his seat instead; total difference.

BLADES IS NOT YELLOW-BELLIED… …He’s sky blue, thank you very much.

CUTE ANIMALS WITH KISSING AND STUNT FLYING: I’d pay to see this movie. I’d pay to see this movie. Sounds like a Disney thing; maybe Chip n' Dale Rescue Rangers if either of those chipmunks ever ended up with Gadget or something.

SPEECH IMPEDIMENT: Okay, so there’s one scene in this episode where Ravenous sounds like it’s saying “Yessssss” when they apprehend him inside the caves. So has anyone seen Danny Phantom because I kept getting “Saaaaam” vibes from it (from the DP episode “Memory Blanks.”) Because of that, I legitimately thought Ravenous would be capable of speech.

OW, MY ACHING FOOT!: Humungado steps on Blades at one point in the episode and I remember sitting there cringing. Also, it reminded me of this scene:





Rescue Bots, taking you out of your childhood one step at a time.

BEST LINE: ”A monster is munching on the mayor’s mansion and no, I will not repeat that.”

Chief Burns is sick of this bullshit.

WORST LINE: ”Don’t have anything to say? Don’t say anything!”

God, even Humungado gave off a face to indicate how lame that insult is.

So I made a Transformers Prime AMV to the TMBG song "Fingertips", I just figured it might be something you might enjoy. :J

This song is immensely fun to make AMVs to, I wonder why more people haven't done it.

Ha Ha, that was pretty amusing. My favorite would probably be the "What is that blue thing" with Smokescreen because I am damn sure that was my reaction, too. Nice job ending it with the high-pitched Bulkhead scream.

I like the bit with Ultra Magnus advancing on him at the end. I didn't even plan for it to turn out that way, it just did. It's also kind of uncanny how effortlessly the second "Fingertips" segment synced up to the scene where Starscream kills Cliffjumper.
