The Ark Addendum - The Insecticon Syndrome (Part 2)
This week, it's time for the Ark Addendum from The Insecticon Syndrome, part two. We get some really nifty interiors and exteriors in this episode, including the Nova Power Plant and the Iron Mountain military base.
It was consuming the Nova Power Core that made the Insecticons grow large and unstable. Really, the episode has a very odd structure. The Insecticons are enlisted to help the Decepticons, attack a power plant, grow large, attack the real target, turn on the Decepticons. All the while, they're getting ready to explode... it's just sorta random. It almost feels like two episodes smushed together. As much as I have a nostalgic bone for the classic Transformers, newer shows really are much tighter and more well written.
