What the heck? Starscreams alive? And why is he hanging out with Rodimus? This is post season 3 of G1 Transformers, right?

I sort of like Starscream's new voice actor, but it is a bit surprising. The strain is a nice reference to Chris Latta's work, but it's too sagacious, not maniac enough for Starscream.

Who's the lady bot? Rodimus' wife?

Oh, Optimus is dead again. Oh wait, they're in exile?

"Sound the alarm"

Gasp! Optimus... is that you...?

If not for the YouTube prologues I'd be really lost.

It's a really awkward moment when Starscream shows a stronger moral center than Rodimus. I'd think Optimus' successor would be quicker to object to just killing everyone; it's an interesting directorial choice, though. The episodes so far feel a bit rushed (and given the run length I don't blame them), but it seems quite good so far. 5 minutes feels awfully strange for a darker, intellectual show, though.

Well, Rodimus briefly mentioned the (dead) Wheeljack, and Galvatron was never mentioned in the promos, so between that and the first prologue it looks like the '86 movie forward never happened here (which would leave Rodimus more of a reused idea than a continuity reference).
