THE MOST INTENSE THING EVER,
This review is from: Transformers Energon - The Return of Megatron (DVD)
Thursday night, I did not sleep at all. Fed up with what I was hearing on the radio, I noticed it was getting sunny out, so got up and went outside. I poured some cereal, listened to some birds, came back in, then turned on the TV set. I think it was nearly 6:00AM when this all happened, so I was not prepared at all for what I was about to see.
A show came on called Transformers: Energon. And quite literally in the first five seconds of the show, there was a robot who came on, and shot LASER BEAMS OUT OF EVERY PART OF HIS BODY.
I knew I was in for a treat.
First of all, let me get this out of the way: THIS IS THE MOST EXTREME MOTHERFREAKING SHOW ON TELEVISION. Every line of dialogue in this show is SCREAMED, and ALWAYS LOUDER THAN THE LAST. The show is so intense that in the middle of one robot's line, he DOES A BACKFLIP, JUST FOR THE HELL OF IT.
All the robots are CGI, meaning the animators can pull off fancy tricks such as even when walking slowly, the robots still move at 1000MPH. There are scenes where there are literally HUNDREDS OF LASERBALLS onscreen per second. For added excitement, they seem to have increased every scene's rate of speed to the speed just before your eye can't perceive any movement. In this episode, Destructive Power, one character spends the entire episode growing larger, and the entire episode, he is covered with SMALL EXPLOSIONS.
The show is also full of great dialogue, such as this:
"Trust your instincts, Optimus, and count on me to back you up."
"I appreciate that."
"How should we cut off the Super Energon?"
"I guess we should cut right through it."
"Are you sure?"
"We don't have any other choice!"
Also, the attacks have great names, such as (and these are quoted from Episode 50:) BATTLESTORM LASERATTACK and NARROW LIGHTBEAM CANNON ATTACK.
Coming back from the commercial to this show is like coming out of a COMA at a DINOSAUR RAVE IN SPACE, it's THAT FREAKING INTENSE. When characters have disagreements in philosophies, they solve it with PUNCH FIGHTS, just like real life. Whenever the camera spins around two characters, the background pans TEN TIMES AS FAST, FOR EXTRA INTENSITY.
I give this show an infinity out of everything, just because it is the most intense thing created thus far by man. Your life sucks if you haven't seen this.
