And now, seemingly without any fanfare, I noticed last night Season 1 of RB Academny is streaming on Netflix.

It is sad because the original RB is *kind of* how my son was introduced into Transformers. It came out when he was 6, and was perfect for him, although he had seen other series thanks to me.

It is unfortunate however, as since these shows cater to such a young audience, the window for their appeal is very short. I'll agree they are well written, and teach good lessons However.... as was painfully obvious last night, my son, now 13 had zero interest in this, which is completely understandable.

I mean with the Original Series, BW, and Prime, you cant still watch those as an adult and be entertained. Not so much, especially with Academy that I'd argue skews even younger than the original RB.

So basically, I told my son this show is for his friends who have younger siblings. It is their turn to get their own show. If you have any kids ages 3-7, or know anybody who dies, let them know this is on Netflix now, and let them enjoy. ;)^

While I'm not really a fan of this show, many of you no doubt know I'm a numbers junkie. In fact I made a news announcement (on another site of course...) way back When Energon was airing in 2004 as to celebrating the franchises overall 500th episode (which unbeknownst to me was a special in Japan which was dubbed on CN as "Distribution"...although the count IMHO was off, a bit, it can be open to interpretation)

Now however, since the landscape of media has changed, we have some 5 minute episodes, and several series with 11 minute episodes. It becomes more difficult to keep track. If we were to solely count episodes, the franchise would probably be approaching 970. But using my system (counting basically for 21 minutes of content=1 episode). I have determined that the RB Academy Episodes "Hack Attack" & "Life of the Party" which recently aired to be the *900th* Episode of Transformers overall.

In either case. If you count each individually, or pair them up for content time, its a pretty impressive feat. Will there be any acknowledgement by Hasbro, TT or the Fandom as the franchise approaches it's 1000th overall episode? Only time will tell.

Who knows. When the first Rescue Bots series had its 100th episode, somebody goofed and ended up airing the 102nd episode as the 100th, leaving the ones that were intended to be numbers 100 and 101 to instead air as 101 and 102, completely throwing off the celebratory feel that the true 100th episode had.

Though, when the episodes were released contemporaneously through iTunes, this goof did not occur as the intended 100th episode did see release in its intended order, much to the confusion of everyone at the time who had no idea about the mix-up with Discovery Family and instead thought that iTunes goofed up at the time.

Already? I haven't finished slogging my way through season one yet.

(And why does RBA get so many more episodes than Cyberverse does? Cyberverse could use the extra screen time.)

Thanks to a heads up from Seibertronian Sabrblade, we have news that the long awaited Rescue Bots Academy Season 2 Trailer is now live!

The Season 2 trailer is 90 seconds long, and gives us a look at the upcoming Rescue bots series, which centers around a group of young new recruits. Following the fact that this is Season 2, the season will focus in on the 2nd year of the recruits training, where each recruit is paired up with a Mentor, which includes the likes of Heatwave, Bumblebee, and Grimlock! We also see that Hot Shot has a lot going on, and it looks like he is set to be a stand out in season 2.

Sadly, there is no sign of Ratchet and Perceptor yet, who are both supposed to be in this new season.

Check out the trailer below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

Ratchet is on the left at 0:26, sporting a cyberverse design it seems.
