I admit it. I’m totally sold on Transformers Prime. I’ve been a Generation 1 snob for a long time (meaning: I can throw down a rant on Michael Bay) but this show has done it right. The tone, character design, writing, voice acting…even down to bringing in the original voice actors for Optimus and Megatron…it clicks.
Starscream has become one of my favorite characters. I didn’t realize he was voiced by Steve Blum, who did Spike Spiegel on Cowboy Bebop. Which is a testament to how versatile he is, I guess.
Anyway, today I thought I’d warm up with that character. Watch your back…especially when he starts begging you for mercy.
