Transformers R.I.D. Review: Cover Me

Break Transformers penguinToday we get to cover the new episode of Transformers: Robots in Disguise with the fifth episode of season two: Cover Me.  On the plus side we see the special operation team.  On the down side…well, you’ll see.

==Potshots=

Cool, desert colors

Did anyone confirm that was 5 seconds?

Hot & cold mini-cons

Again with the Optimus disrespect?

INTRO

Razorpaw?

Windblade we agree with you.

Subtle Windblade…not.

You were defeated by a damn squirrel???

BREAK

Where’s Seaspray when you need him?

Or an Autobot that can turn to one.

That’s hot…or cold.

BREAK

Get ‘im Windblade

Good swing Op.

When he finally starts talking again, he’ll be using some new Earth words he’s been waiting to use for the right time now.

==Summary==

Meh.

What was there to like about the episode?  Well, we got more Windblade, the best character of the series.  There was the desert camo colors for all the Autobots, which seemed cool at first but ended up  being meh.  The lead Decepticon, which I don’t believe we ever saw transform, was meh.  Even thro Razorpaw was an energy vampire he was meh.  Plus, we continue with the weakening of Optimus Prime subplot, and even his victory in the end didn’t satisfy due to how subpar the villains were.

We wish we could say more about this episode, but it was just so meh.  This was a filler episode, and not even a remotely interesting one.  2.5 snowflakes out of 5.

Quoth the penguin…evermore.
