Season 1 has. Season 2 ain't coming until Winter (almost two years after season 1 :BOOM: ). It's not known what episodes this DVD will have. The title implies season 2 episodes, but since season 2 is still being made, it may be more season 1 episodes.

Doesn't it say above which eps? Not sure how to properly quote a press release, but:

"Episodes Include: 1.Cody On Patrol
2.Walk On The Wild Side
3.Christmas In July
4.Deep Trouble
5.Return Of The Dinobot"

Or did you mean something else?

I think all the "Energize" title implies is that that's the name of the current Rescue Bots toyline, and they wanted uniformity.

Something about the current state of kids' show single release DVDs just told me that Rescue Bots wasn't getting the complete season release it deserves. The trend now seems to be taking select episodes of cartoons, old and new, to create impulse buys. Likely just a symptom of the economy.

If we want complete Season DVD sets of RB, then bootleggers, get yer' DVRs filled up and start a' burnin'! Hate to have to apply the same logic of my position on knock-off toys and old, obscure TV and movies to a show that isn't even cancelled yet, but I don't see Hasbro and Shout! proving me wrong anytime soon. Only YOU can properly preserve your favorite shows and shield them from the global I.P. war that will define this decade!

Oh slag, I didn't see that. :oops:

Those are all season 1 episodes, yeah.

And, aw man, they got "Walk on the Wild Side" in the wrong placement. It's supposed to be episode 6, before "Cody on Patrol". They did this with "Three Bots and a Baby" on Volume 1, putting it after episode 5 on that disc when it should be episode 8.

And they misspelled "Dino Bot". There's a space in there since it's not the kind of "Dinobot" we usually get, and "Dino Bot" is the more ubiquitous spelling that's evem used by the production staff.

And what's more is that this DVD includes all of the Dr. Morocco episode except for the two-parter he actually stars in, episodes 12-13. Stopping at episode 11 ends the disc on a depressing cliffhanger with a feeling of sadness and ominous worry for the next chapter of the story.

Yeah, but we've seen what looks like Season 2 footage in the new toy commercials for the Energize gimmick.
