Oh look, Cartoon Network is broadcasting a show out of order, surprise surprise. Really enjoying Animated so far, just hoping that they don't kill it by screwing with the schedule and the show times like they have every other TF show.

I preferred Blast from the Past. Meltdown was just alright by comparison.

Well, in all fairness, Blast from the Past was a better episode, so I'm glad it aired first. But, oh, hey, look! Reruns already! :-P But it is ANOTHER showing of Blast from the Past, so all is forgiven. :P

Like it really matters. These are, for the most part, stand-alone episodes, so it's not like you're really missing any major plot points by them skipping an episode.

I'm really guessing they swapped them so that they could get higher ratings early on.

The one thing that I hate about Cartoon Network's airings of Animated are the adverts at the bottom. Can they take up some more space so that more of the plot can be lost? JEEZ! 8-}

I just watched "Total Meltdown" this morning on my Comcast On Demand under Kids - Cartoon Network - Transformers. So far they've showed the Pilot movie, an episode where megatron comes to life and takes over the car factory where the Autobots are staying, and then Total Meltdown. Have I seen all episodes thus far? Because unless the first opening movie counts as 3 episodes than I've only seen 3.

oh god. I just looked up "transformers: animated" on Wikipedia and I just found the answer to why Total Meltdown was not initially shown:

The episode "Total Meltdown" was not aired on U.S. television due to the wrestling and steroid references. It was, however, aired in Canada on YTV and aired later in the US on various on demand services.

People in America cannot handle themselves like the rest of the world! They are always WAAAAY too serious and looking for anything to pose a lawsuit! Cartoon Network was just pulling a CTA manuever, sad as it sounds! Americans in general just need to get over themselves (and this comes from an American!)!

I believe the correct count thus far is 6. 7 if you count Total Meltdown

3 pilot/premiere episodes of Transform and Roll Out.
1 Home is Where the Allspark Is
1 Total Meltdown(removed from this slot and pushed to February, still aired On demand though and other countries)
1 Blast from the Past
1 Thrill of the Hunt

Upcoming episode for this Saturday 26th.
"Nanosec"
Hot Rod Legacy...
