    I guess they failed their class because they didn’t have a project for the science fair.

        Bad at what?

        What is it you think I’m doing?

          …Aaaaand now we come to the part where you play ignorant, as if someone else took over your account and made the spam/troll comment that you originally typed and that you personally had nothing to do with it. It’s just too bad that you’re not a funny troll, because if your randomness was funny, there’d at least be something of merit there.

          This shtick of yours is so old that it’s growing mold.  You’ve been at this for a while now on more than one forum. I know that you’re not funny, but if you’re truly as ignorant as you pretend to be whenever you get called out for your BS, you wouldn’t be able to talk without drooling on your shoes, let alone work a computer.

            Goldstar, never argue with an idiot; they’ll drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

            Just ignore TheSKARD1. I’ve stopped trying to engage this pathetic man-child a long time ago, I suggest you do the same. If we could block comments here, I’d have sent his ass to Block Town a long time ago. The fool just wants attention, so the worst thing you can do is not give him any.

            Don’t let people with no life ruin yours.

            I see nothing wrong with my comment that I should claim any such thing. I was merely asking what problem you see with it.

            How was what I commented spam, trolling, or random? It directly relates to the content of the video and the motivation of the characters in the episode being reviewed. Unlike your comment which has nothing to do with the video, or even what I typed. You just want to attack me for some reason.

            What is my shtick? Whatever you answer I expect it is not actually my schtick and you have no justifiable reason for thinking it is.

            I don’t care who you are. But your remark about other forums makes it sound like you’re stalking me across different websites.

          OK, may bad. I legit thought that you were spamming the comment section there. If you weren’t, then that’s on me. I over reacted. If I could delete my previous comments, then I would.

          “I don’t care who you are.”

          And I don’t care who you are either, so we’re even. 😁

          “But your remark about other forums makes it sound like you’re stalking me across different websites.”

          Sorry to disappoint, but no; I have no reason, nor any interest in following you anywhere. I don’t stalk people, and even if I did, it would be someone more significant than you. Sorry, Charlie.

            Okay… I have several questions about that but if it’s resolved then it’s all good with me.

    In defense of this episode, even though it is definitely dumb and goofy, it is written to be a comedy. I even picked up on some of the comedic elements seeing this as a kid, though the comedy is VERY MUCH of the 80s and hasn’t aged well.

    Swindle selling the parts of his smashed up allies is kinda funny, his name -is- Swindle, he is a bad guy and a coward afterall… the people he sells to were 80s go-to bad guy stereotypes.  Presidente is obviously a stand in for a Fidel Castro type, the middle easterners looked like a Saudi oil regime expy, and of course… Rubles for the Soviets because the Cold War is still happening when this came out.

    The kids and the school project plot are very dumb, but in the context of it’s time, it kind of fit in with teen comedy movies like like Real Genius, Weird Science,  and Revenge of the Nerds. (a bit of Short Circuit also)

     

    I do love how the Autobots become proper scale for the high school rooms and lab equipment…and why does BOT have a washbin of corn soaking in milk!!?!

    Technical flubs and glitches such as characters having the wrong colors in certain shots, duplicates of characters in scenes, clones of characters being re-used as background characters, etc., were common in first run syndicated shows during that time. The studios had to churn out five shows for one week and so they were on a tight schedule and there wasn’t time to check and double check to make sure there weren’t any errors. So the folks at the studios would say “Hey, we already designed these existing characters. It’d be mush easier to just re-use them. We’ll just paint their hair and clothes different colors. Nobody will notice.”, and of course, someone always does.

    Swindle should have know that combiners are screwed if any of the parts are missing.

    And, of course you’re not getting your rubles back. That’s what happens when you deal with a guy named Swindle.

    I do feel bad for Elise having to do with those two assholes. Hopefully she’ll get that job as a Pokemon gym leader soon.
