Though, FFoD and one other episode are probably the lowest points in animation of season 3, so the rest should still have animation not quite as bad as these ones. And, there are those few brilliantly animated ones to look forward to. ;)

Well, at least they won't be as bad as FFoD
FFoD is a lot like Energon... Great ideas and plot... executed horribly

Yeah, it's a mixed bag. But there are some much better episodes (story-wise) to come. Season 3 is also known for having some of the best stories of G1 as well.

How far are you into FFoD?
"When there's gold feathers, punch behind you!!"

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis

finished it. I would be posting on here for each episode like I normally do, but since I'm not watching them on the computer it complicates things

Since Dark Awakening has two ending versions, how will this one be watched?

Cool. Though, I have a hunch that the Hub is airing the first ending version if they're using the Shout! Factory DVDs to air these episodes. But, without seeing it myself, I can't say for sure.

For this season, expect animation errors. It was the 1980s and it was done by a so-so animation company called AKOM, who only did about three episodes of season 2 (the rest were handled by the higher quality group Toei Animation).

As for "The Killing Jar", twas interesting seeing one that focused primarily on the second-in-commands of both factions instead of the leaders. :smile:

Ha! Never thought of that!

Only thing that came to mind when I saw Roadbuster Ultra Magnus was, well, G1 Roadbuster.

Just finished G1, I like it, despite the animation errors! Though, the ending seemed very rushed!
