Shadowcon Reviews- Loose Cannons

     Shadowcon Reviews: Transformers Prime season 2, episode 6: “Loose Cannons”

     I think this episode could be summed up as the “reintroduction” episode fro Wheeljack. As I pointed out last time, “Con Job” didn’t have much Wheeljack in it, and its premise made character introduction pretty much non-existent. But with “Loose Cannons”, a full season later, or thereabouts, we get a proper actual Wheeljack-centric episode, complete with interactions and conversations with Bulkhead that really work well to develop a cold, battle-hardened Wheeljack in contrast to a team-player and alive Bulkhead, as well as the debut of Wheeljack’s Earth vehicle mode, something that is usually a staple in any introductory episode of a character. So yeah, this is very much a second go at introducing ‘Jackie to the lineup and I think it works a heck of a lot better than “Con Job”.

No, I'm Not Dead

Hey all.

So, I know I've been absent from the blog of late, and I know I made the blog private there for some time. The reason I did this was because I revamped it. I'm now officially done using the numbering scheme for Reviews, Overviews, Mini-Views because it just got too ridiculous and complicated, especially with things overlapping in tags, getting re-written, all of that. And I also removed (almost) all the Buffy/Angel related posts here because frankly what I wrote up to serve as reviews for those shows was an insult to them and to the other review sites out there who do far better work critiquing those shows. So things are a little different, there was much pruning on my part, and so here's the new site.

I've started college! Woot! So exciting! Just got done with my first week of classes, and it's been a little rough. Not gonna lie, there were several crying sessions, mostly in the beginning of the week where I was just completely disoriented and alienated by WU, but now it's gotten better. I'm taking three classes: Women in the Arts (my favorite), Western Classical Music in Modern America (it's a Freshman course, one of several choices that all Freshmen are required to take), and Intro to Creative Writing. All of them are super awesome, and college life is pretty chill.

I've been watching Buffy Season Four and it's so relatable now! I've also started in on this show Friday Night Lights, which is pretty good from the two episodes I've seen of it. Both shows are getting me through some tough transitions that I still have to contend with. Oh, and I also finished A Dance with Dragons, and yes, it is my favorite book of the five that are out right now. I do want to do a blog post about it at some point, though I'll see if homework and studying and socializing will give me time to do so!

Anyway, I'm sorry that the blog's been gone and inactive for so long! More posts to come I'm sure; as to whether they'll be Reviews, Mini-Views, updates on my life (which I know all of you are just dying to know about), I'm not sure yet. It's good to be back!
