uhm yeah one who the heck is sentinel? is he the brother of optimus prime. also jazz looks awesome.

also ultra magnus looks fricken awesome in both vehicle and alt mode.can;t wait for this action figure to come out. also i just hope he isn;t going to be a repainted version of cybertron's... wow after looking at the cybertron's he is going to be his own self. about time.

What the heck sarrie*sp* is a android? come on it be understandlabe the reason why the alspark chose her is cause of the cybertronian or even human advance robotics.

Here is what i think.

The show was good. I really hate sentinal. Jazz is like prowl so ill get him. The allspark in the robots now that was a good idea. But the thing about sari so she must be a bot but who knows.

Ultra Magus is Thor.....

Sentinel Prime is a Jerk.....

Jazz jus way 2 Cool, not G1 Scat Man voice cool but jus as much.......

Aslo its apparently there a Ninja School in Cybertron.....


I neva thought i will see Prime, Prowl and Jazz once again since the old G1 days fighting 2gether.

N now we got our 1st plot twist with Sari Background which got a big question mark about her existences

If Sari is a bot, how can she go "potty"?

:P

Amazing episode love ultra magnus and jazz. Sentinel Prime is as big A***hole as I thought he would be and the mystery of Sari deepens can't wait to see what happens next. Just hope it is continued in two weeks after the whole ben ten thing is over.

Wonderful. Jazz was sweet. And the best part, aside form Sentinel's whose matches his character, is that they seem to be getting away from the cleftmasters

yes it seems this show is getting to be more and more like G1 and thats a good thing but also its using different references from other transformers shows. But all we need is ironhide, sky warp and thundercracker and it will be a bit more like G1.

I am interested in seeing how this plot twist with Sari will work out. She can't be a bot, tho, since Sumdac certainly hasn't invented any type or robot that can act so "human".

I also really liked what they did with Jazz's character. And he has nunchucks, which is a nice change if weaponry IMO. I hope to see more of him, tho I wonder why Prowl didn't go through all of Ninja-bot training? So many questions!

Did anyone else notice the look of Dull Surprise on Sari's face at the end of the episode? :)

I like Jazz a LOT better than the other two. He's much easier to convince that humans aren't deadly than the other two. I think Sentinel might be scared of organics based on his past experience with the spiders and he always pulling out a force field in this episode.

And, I hate to admit it, but there might be something to the theory about Sari being a robot. BUT a robot/android/etc is not the only possibility as to what she is. Another possible one would be that she could've been born in a lab tube/artificial womb as a human created through science.

Besides, its already been said she's human:

But things can change.

Maybe Jazz will teach Prowl some new Metallikato moves. He didn't seem like he was being malicious toward Prowl when he commented on his skills(he actually sounded quite impressed), just that he needed some more training. Jazz came off as less of a prick than Sentinel.

Magnus was quite awesome, despite never hitting anything with the GYNORMOUS hammer.

As for Sari, the original clips of the show had her with a backpack that put out little jet boosters, maybe they weren't coming out of the backpack... Didn't she have a robot dog too?

The highlight of this episode for me was when Grimlock knocked that autoprick Sentinel Prime flat on his aft. Priceless!

I also really love Jazz. Him and Prowl make an awesome ninja team!

Why are people calling this season 2? Wasn't Season 1 was supposed to be 26 episodes long?

Great episode! I wish these episodes were an hour long, 'cause 30 minutes is just too short. I was suprized to see Megatron established a base in the mines were his body was excavated. :grin: This Inuyasha-style search for the Allspark/crystal shards should prove interesting. If these shards are to be found in Cybertronian based technology, it could mean a return for Soundwave. :wink: It could also mean we'll be getting Allspark-powered superhumans and/or Decepticons.

That was a sweet episode, and only one line from Sari that made me cringe. It's a record.

Thor was cool too! That is to say Ultra "Thor" Magnus.

I don't understand how someone as ignorant as Sentinel Prime gets to hang out with the Supreme Commander though.

Jazz was okay, nothing special, but pretty fun.

I'm going to designate Ultra Magnus' ship, "The O'Neill". Har har.

Loved it.

Ultra Magnus was super cool with his hammer, really gives his status some 'umph'.

Sentinel is a dick. Awesome!

Jazz is very likable. If they kill THIS Jazz off, I will be very annoyed. This is the closest to G1 Jazz we've had, in his love for earth culture. Well the movie one did have a love for it too but it wasn't really explored or elaborated on.

Megatron and his gang are still around. Woop.

The AllSpark is scattered around... Sounds sadly unoriginal. Strikes the same chord as Dragon Ball Z or Pokemon in a 'Gotta catch em all' kinda way. We'll see if they manage it well.

And Sari not existing! It's an interesting direction, but I feel a little that its a bit.. soap opera drama, you know? A sudden inexplicable twist thrown in for effect. No doubt this is what Sumdaac was referring to in the last episode. I'm gonna guess she's actually a robot or something totally bizarre. Why else would the AllSpark choose her? I mean it has very little to do with organics generally, doesn't it.

This is starting to get very G1 again, i'm please to say! All very nostalgic. Autobots helping to repair the damage. The decepticons scheming. And of course, its going back to the Autobot/Decepticon war now. Plus the new elements, like Prime having a rival and Sari being.. not Sari.

Loving it! Loving it all over!

No just 13 eps. That's how it is with all CN shows 13 episodes per season, but I bet this series will get atleast 5 seasons since that;s the usual run for CN shows
