Here's a bit of good news for some of you Transformers Prime fans, the series is now available from The Hub on Comcast Infinity's On Demand service. Even better, tomorrow's episode "Sick Mind" is already available for viewing! Our fearless leader Seibertron has already watched the episode and would like to share his thoughts.

Here's the spoiler free version:

This was a great episode! Without spoiling it too much, "sick mind" has a double meaning that all of you will be sure to enjoy


For those who wish to be spoiled:

After Optimus Prime contracts a virus, Ratchet and the Autobots try to figure out how to save their beloved leader. Arcee and Bumblebee sneak aboard the Nemesis to find a cure for the Decepticon created virus. While they don't find anything in the Decepticon's computer system, they do discover the comatose Megatron. Arcee links Bumblebee's mind to Megatron's so that he can find a cure in Megatron's mind. Bumblebee gets more than he bargained for once he's in Megatron's mind as he's thrust into Megatron's dreamworld version of Kaon and faces the evil Decepticon leader face-to-face. This is an awesome episode that harkens back to the first five episodes thanks to the return of Megatron, voiced by fan-favorite Frank Welker.

I've been catching it threw a fan on YouTube. Prime is what G1 would have been had Hasbro had greater control over Sunbow. If anything the Hasbro/Takara lines would probably have been a lot closer.

Sure is a step away from the more kid-friendly Animated.

I really love where this is going.

It lagged in parts, and I think it could have had a bit more development, but wow, its getting decent.

"One shall stand, one shall fall."

That most classic of lines.... that is now getting abused to buggery. Every time I hear it now I cringe; it had no place being in this episode, it was pitifully shoe-horned into the original mini-series, its inclusion in the 2007 movie was insulting seeing as it was used while Sam was stumbling through rubble, and the deviation used in RoTF ("I rise. You fall."), the less said about that the better.

That aside, a very good episode it was. Not much happened, but a decent episode for the cerebellum. I much prefer the darker themed shows.

In the part where Ratchet told Arcee to do the mind-patch, and she said "I'd lay down my life any day for Optimus, but.... something something..." I didn't catch that... or maybe I did, but I don't get why she says it. She's willing to die for Prime but not split her mind from her body... is that it? Help!

Arcee: "Ratchet, I would lay down my life for Optimus, anytime, anywhere. But a mind/body split..."

She's uncertain if the process would be successful or not, and if it were to fail, all her efforts to save Prime would be in vain. It's not so much that she was unwilling to risk her mentality for Optimus, but that she was skeptical of the idea of splitting her own mind from her body into Megatron's mind and if it would even work or not.

Plus, I doubt anyone would really wanna hook up their noggin to that of the Emperor of Destruction. ;)
