Oh, how long I have waited for this moment. Let the magic begin!
Episode 12 -
Oh, man! Cody must be the luckiest kid alive, being given rides to school in a helicopter. A robot
helicopter, no less.
Oh hai, new robot guy.
The MorBot appears to transform into some kind of armored assault tank.
Aha! The mayor refers to Dr. Morocco as having come back
to Griffin Rock. So he is
Doc Greene's predecessor after all.
And he had previously created dangerous and uncontrollable technology when he was last on the island, so there's good reason to not trust him this time.
Mayor: "Enough! Chief, you and Dr. Morocco come to to the City Council meeting this afternoon. I can't make any important decisions without pants!"
Mrs. Neederlander runs a Bed & Breakfast.
The mayor acknowledges that the Rescue Bots have replaced dozens of rescue vehicles since their coming to Griffin Rock. So I guess the Burns family really has had a monopoly on the emergency response departments of the whole island.
Boulder apparently kept the rubber ducky from the Robo-Baby episode.
I knew there'd be some form a cheating in this competition. Morocco's creating his own emergencies via sabotage to gain the upper hand.
THE SCOOP CLAW IS BACK!!! They're going all out on this one!
Wait a sec. The crates are filled with explosives, and yet have not exploded despite being engulfed in flames? OR being knocked out by that huge wave? Either that's some powerfully insulated wood, or those are the most dullest explosives in the history of explosives, having a delayed reaction to, you know, explode!
That's a mighty fine history lesson about John Henry that Cody's telling the Bots (save for his covering up the end).
I just noticed that Cody's been looking at all different parts of the town from the Command center. Does the Burns family have camera stashed all of the island to monitor everyone? Not only do they have an emergency services monopoly, but they've also got a Big Brother security system set up to spy on everyone. This is giving off mixed messages for a kids show.
Great Scott, the Delorean's back!
The Nanites are back too.
Boulder finished the John Henry book. A solemn moment.
This has got to be the Rescue Bot's first true defeat.
Frankie and Doc have discovered the Nanites. Let us proceed to Part 2...
Episode 13 -
Horace Burns was the founder of Griffin Rock, and he has a memorial statue of himself. His "immortal words" were, "The march of progress somethings leaves casualties underfoot."
Mr. Harrison is in danger by his own helicopter pack again
. The gag is getting old if it's the same old stuff each time.
Morocco is talking to some sort of customer when he's at the lab. Whoever this contact is, it could lead to something bigger than this show has ever been.
Boulder's taken up painting. Just like Animated Bulkhead. And the resemblance only enhances.
Heatwave's been trying to contact Optimus Prime.
They still have access to their ship from episode 1? Awesome!
OH SNAP! Morocco was monitoring the MorBot's optical analyses, and he saw when Heatwave spoke on his own. So now Morocco may know that there's more to the Rescue Bots than... well, you know.
Ahhh, Kade cares about Heatwave leaving. The two really have grown closer.
HOLY COW! Doc Green has a flash drive
that can hold up to 100 terabytes!
Morocco's contact is interested in weaponized technology and is building an army. Could this contact be... MECH?!!!
Morocco's plan is to get revenge on Griffin Rock for making him into a pariah before by selling off the island's advanced technology.
Morocco's blimp computer has blueprints for everything he's created and/or sabotaged to get to where he is.
ALRIGHT! Time for some series Rescue Bots vs. MorBot action!!!
...WHAT?!!! It was all done off screen?! What a ripoff!!
Well, at least everybody got their proper jobs back.
Morocco's gotten away, having stolen the Mayor's schooner.
And with that, it comes to a close. These were most EXCELLENT episodes. The stakes were the biggest they have ever been, and morals of compassion and reason were neatly wrapped around it all. Dr. Morocco is a superb
villain, having a multi-faceted personality, a thorough agenda, and a realistic motive. He portrays a different kind of threat that can prove to be just as much a force to be reckoned with as MECH and the Decepticons. Not to mention the outstanding performance by Tim Curry breathing life into this malicious man made him all the more developed. I can't wait to see more of both him and this series. If this is to be the level of writing to come in later episodes, then all I have to say is, RESCUE BOTS, ROLL TO THE RESCUE!!!
