Mars Needs Podcasts #232-More Than Meets The Eye

JJ and his amazing friend Jason are here to talk over a movie. In this case it is the animated Transformers:The Movie from 1986. Jason, JJ and a friend saw this at the theater when they were all young martians and it made quite the impression on them. Does it hold up? Is the death of Prime still full of feels? Is Ultra Magnus still the worst leader ever? Take a listen and find out!

    Fantastic commentary, lads! I have so many trivia tidbits that I couldn’t possibly type ’em out here so I’ll spare you but you did a great job! Highly enjoyable!

    But one thing, Springer is a fantastic leader, as Last Stand of The Wreckers will show you. Go read it! :D

    Agreed, great commentary! I never really saw much of the tv cartoon but I remember watching the VHS of the movie a lot, I still have it somewhere along with a few tapes of the Beast Wars series (… yeah, I’m younger and robot animals seemed way cooler than robot cars, there’s a wasp and a crab and a velociraptor! Megatron’s a t-rex (and then a dragon! because disguise?)) and I totally disagree on the datedness of the music but that’s probably just down to my bad taste. Anyway yeah, was a fun episode, wouldn’t mind hearing some more non-comic-book-movie-talkin’-over in the future (or have Jason on Drive-In some time unless that happened already since I’m not super-up-to-date on that).
