:bulletred: As always, SPOILERS!




RESCUE BOTS, EPISODE 35: FEED THE BEAST
(Big Foot Transformation; running around without pants since the 1800s)





”If something looks scary; does that mean it is scary?”

“Feed the Beast” is just as ridiculous as the rest of Rescue Bots, what with it possessing tainted meat altered by bad science that accidentally transforms humans into Bigfoot-like monsters. However, it’s largely straightforward offering (I saw the beastly transformation coming a mile away) only garners a “meh” from my end.

Using Boulder for the Aesop makes a load of good sense though: don't automatically perceive what you see in front of you until you get to know 'em, they may be more than meets the...um, you get the idea. I do appreciate the differing perspective to this idea though. People like Heatwave and Cody dive headfirst into thinking the Lake Ridge Mobster is bad because it possesses claws and fangs. If it quacks like a duck, then it is a duck. Then there are those whose mindsets cater towards people like Charlie Burns who doesn’t necessarily denounce the idea that the Lake Ridge monster isn’t any less dangerous (and his kids are more than willing to put it down just because of the potential risk involve if they don't), but isn’t so gung-ho to chase after it just because of what it is. And of course, there are people like Graham and Boulder who advices studying said creature to understand what it is and how to best approach it. While Boulder’s strategy wins out in the end, I don’t think the episode necessarily states Heatwave’s attitude is any less wrong; it depends on the situation and “Feed the Beast” does a good job giving us differing viewpoints.

Also, it’s nice to see Boulder and Graham interacting. Because they’re the most benign of the Burns/robot cast, they don’t stick out as the rest, so their onscreen moment is a nice treat.  

I do love that Cody is the one visibly excited over the possible prospect of an actual Lake Ridge Monster. He’s a ten-year-old boy and still at the point where he has a vivid, active imagination while his older, adult siblings have passed that stage, had the magic lifted out of their eyes, and sees things from a more grounded perspective. Cody’s general mannerism harkens back to an older time when children still behaved in this way: imaginative and adventurous, where they’d rather explore urban myths and explore the great outdoor with nothing but stories to carry them. Granted, I’m not saying kids today lack this kind of thinking and if my constant babysitting is anything to go by, they’re still rambunctious little munchkins (see also the kid who made Axe Cop), but I can’t help but think the ten-year-olds of today are growing up too fast. Bah, now I’m just getting senile.

Good episode, but nothing that truly sticks out.

BONUS OBSERVATIONS

YOU’LL PUT YOUR EYE OUT, KID: Why does Doc think cooking and shooting out meat from a futuristic rail gun is the best idea to make a burger? What if someone can’t catch their meat because they suck? Does the machine have a homing device? It looks like it could seriously put someone’s eye out.

And just to add into another list of “Griffin-Rock-Is-The-Most-Dangerous-Place-In-The-World”, who orders a meal from a blimp?

SMILE FOR THE CAMERA: While Mayor Luskey’s presence is clearly the cause, I’d like to say the Graham’s nervousness shortly after the blimp incident is due to his camera shy personality.

ON SELL AT YOUR LOCAL TOYS R US: I think this is the first time you see all four Bots using their Energize tools in the same scene. I also love that they always raise the damn things and shout out a phrase every time. It’s probably not necessarily to do either, but it’s like they know they’re in a toy-driven show. You know, I bet Blades made them do it because he’d watched enough TV to do something as dramatically ridiculous as that.

A nice, subtle Cody moment during this scene has him giving off a grateful smile after they fixed the ceiling rails. It’s cute.

WORST LINE: ”Always here to save the day when one of Doc’s burgers goes hindenburger.”

Oh my God, Luskey, no.

Here. I made this comic years ago and I honestly don't like it anymore. Eventually, I think I will be deleting this comic clean from that website, so savor it while you can.

Yeah. I ordered mine on Amazon a month or so ago, though it did take a whiler to deliver. My only complaint is that the episodes (largely Season 2) are out of order. I expected better from Shout!Factory to fix this (this has occurred in other DP DVD incarnations before.) But still, for a price like that, it's a good excuse to get all 53 episodes in one set for those who love DP and haven't gotten it on home video yet.

true, and it is nice to be able to have all the episodes for once even if they are a bit shuffled.

You are so right about "Thirst" being the best TFP episode.  So, so right. :)
