Transformers Prime Beast Hunters on The Hub

The Hub Network continues it’s third and final season of the Daytime Emmy® Award-winning CG-animated series “Transformers Prime Beast Hunters” from Hasbro Studios, this Friday, April 12, at 7:30 PM (ET).

In the newest episode, entitled “Rebellion”, we see that Team Prime has reunited under the leadership of UltraMagnus, and has waged war on the Decepticon Citadel. However, the fate of Optimus Prime is still in the balance, and the Autobots must decide how to face their newest enemy, the Predacon. The action is heavy in this episode with both sides having the advantage at different stages of the battle. But only one side can win. Who will it be? Tune in Friday at 7:30 PM (ET) on The Hub to find out.

Here’s a video preview:

To recap from the season-three premiere episode, the survival of Optimus Prime is in doubt after Megatron’s destruction of the Autobot base on Earth, while the separated members of Team Prime try to reconnect after being scattered to the wind to prevent detection.

The final 13 episodes will see Optimus Prime and his team face their greatest challenge yet in a new foe dedicated to the destruction of the Autobots — and potentially, planet Earth.

I am a Big Fan of all types of animation. Like a lot of things, the cream always rises to the top. My favorites have included Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Rebels, anything Pixar, Phineas and Ferb, Voltron Legendary Defender, and the DC/WB Animated Films. I have a lot of Old School favorites as well, such as Star Blazers, Voltron, Looney Toons, Tom & Jerry, and Scooby Doo.

I’m sad that this will be the last season of a CGI animation series that has some seriously good writing. The only reason I can think of that would confine this series to a “kids'” network is the notion that the transformers are “toys” with a plot built around them. The plot for these series is heroic as opposed to the cartoon Transformers series. All the characters have a depth to them. While the conflict may be frequent, it isn’t gratuitous or cliched. There is a purpose for the conflict, and the stakes are formidable for both sides. There are still more fascets of the Transformers to explore, and I don’t think that three seasons really wraps it up. What was life like on Cybertron prior to the conflict? What caused the conflict? How much of a backstory could be told? What if future Transformers came to earth who decided to make themselves over into androids like Data and blend in with humans to become normal or possibly heroes, or worse, villians? I would hope that the seasons roll on, or at least are considered for future programming even on a different network, such as the Science channel, which has done science fiction before, or the Sci-Fi channel. This series has such an integity to it. I would hope in the future, I could tune in and find new episodes where Optimus Prime gives the orders to “Roll out!”

I think because this originates from Hasbro, it may tie-in with their toy line. If this particular toy line is not selling well, they may pull the cartoon, and bring Transformers back in a new way, with a new toy line. The integrity of the series is still intact, thanks to the writers of these shows. I still think there are plenty of Transformers stories to be told.
