Shadowcon Reviews: Transformers Prime Season 3, episode 5, “Project Predacon”
Hi! It’s been like six months since I’ve done a Prime review, and the gap hasn’t been helped by the fact that the show was recently taken off of Netflix for god knows what reason. But, I’ve managed to get my Season Three DVD here with me, so that problem’s rectified now! Yay!
Season Three is probably Prime at its most consistent. Unlike Season Two, which had a weird habit of fluctuating between awesome and piss awful, this season has a good stretch of solid if relatively unremarkable episodes before closing with a bang. The relic hunt formula is back, but as I’ve mentioned previously, this season tries to switch things up and actually make the show more about the characters than about the plot. It succeeds to varying degrees, and this episode offers our first look at how this season attempts to redo its relic hunt from Season Two.
