FMYL 27.2 - THE EVIL DECEPTICONS
Now for the other side of the coin, covering the 21, or 22 (Does Devastator count in addition to the Constructicons?) or 24 (Does Reflector count as 3?) Decepticons that we've encountered so far. Because season 2 is gonna show us at least 15 more! So let's sum 'em up and talk about these bots we love so much. Episode coverage will resume next time with "A Prime Problem"! http://FourMillionYearsLater.com Befriend the FOUR MILLION YEARS LATER page on Facebook!

FMYL 27.1 - THE HEROIC AUTOBOTS
A bit of a break from the norm; before the new characters start showing up, we're taking a minute to discuss the many Autobots we already know, as well as their little squishy friends.  Don't worry, I edited out the 2 hours Jerzy spent crying and muttering "How is Chip so good??" And yep, that means next time we're covering the Decepticons. Episode coverage will resume after that with "A Prime Problem"! http://FourMillionYearsLater.com Befriend the FOUR MILLION YEARS LATER page on Facebook!

FMYL 27 - THE CORE
First off, please forgive the audio issues this episode, we were dealing with two separate audio problems teaming up! So THE CORE is not a PRETTY episode, but is it a BAD one?? We found it's NOT! You might just shut your eyes and listen to it. Chip Chase is BACK, and he's got a PLAN! But so does MEGATRON! And Starscream has a SNIPER RIFLE and 6 Autobots in his sights!! Tune in and find out why we groaned at this episode as children but have a new appreciation for it as.... older children. Song at 54:48-55:30 is "We're In This Together" by Nine Inch Nails covered by Tara Rice. It's fantastic!  https://www.youtube.com/user/TaraRiceMusic/ http://FourMillionYearsLater.com Befriend the FOUR MILLION YEARS LATER page on Facebook!

FMYL 26 - ENTER THE NIGHTBIRD
Dr. Fujiyama (the famous scientist) has created a female ninja robot, which is definitely NOT an assassin, even though it has nunchucks, throwing stars, and sais! Definitely not!! Megatron MUST HAVE IT, and Starscream gets all kinds of jelly!! Good story, pretty good animation... it's even got Rumble and Frenzy. All this, and Trailbreaker gets blasted across a huge auditorium!!  http://FourMillionYearsLater.com Befriend the FOUR MILLION YEARS LATER page on Facebook!

FMYL 25 - DAY OF THE MACHINES
Well... Hoover had a lot of issues with this episode. Buuuuut, at least it wasn't animated by Akom? Thankfully there were SOME redeeming things in here that we were able to call attention to. Still didn't stop us from talking about it for an hour and a half. It's got Frenzy, and it's got Skyfire, so each of our hosts had SOMETHING to like. And it's got... Paul??? Give it a listen! http://FourMillionYearsLater.com Befriend the FOUR MILLION YEARS LATER page on Facebook!

FMYL 24 - ATLANTIS, ARISE!
In this exciting episode, if IMDB is to be believed, the DECEPTICONS MAKE FRIENDS UNDER THE SEA! It really doesn't go quite that way... but there's plenty of Autobot cars-on-waterskiis, Subatlantican telepathy, and bad guys turning on other badguys action! So grab your speedo and scuba mask like Spike and dive in!!! In this episode we mention the TOY GALAXY HISTORY OF ENTERTECH video. Find that here: https://youtu.be/lqgNYho9xl8 We also mention the old serial THE CRIMSON GHOST.

FMYL 23 - THE AUTOBOT RUN
There's.... well, there's a lot of sighing in this episode. This is another one of the AKOM-animated episodes, and it... it looks pretty bad. Very bad even. So the challenge is, can we find the good in it?? Well, we found some!! It's got Chip Chase, so you know Jerzy ferreted some good out. And it's got some nice Skywarp action, so Hoover was pleased with that at least. What else was there to like?

We're back to talking about episodes, and here is AUTOBOT SPIKE to kick off season two. In this episode we hear young Jerzy's shocked reaction to the new SEASON TWO OPENING! Jerzy upgrades the script from an intermediate level to young adult level!! Hoover lovingly talks about Reflector!!! Jerzy actually THROWS SHADE at Optimus Prime!!!! And we mispronounce Donald F Glut's last name YET AGAIN (sorry Chris)!!!!! All this and the creepiest quote in the series (so far, at least).

FMYL 16.1 - SEASON 1 WRAP-UP PART 1 (OF 2)
So we went to do a season wrap-up show not sure we'd have enough to talk about, and it ended up being twice as long as usual, so we decided to post it in two parts, as I'd be very surprised if anyone wanted to listen to us for 2 1/2 hours in one sitting! In this half, we set the scene talking about the cartoon and toy landscapes of 1984, and how Transformers changed so many things, being an innovation, and literal worldwide phenomenon. You'll get to hear Jerzy discover UHF stations! Experience young Hoover shocked and excited that a GIRL collected Transformers!! And learn the terrible tragedy slash CBS Special Event that forever distanced Jerzy from his family!!! YOUR LIFE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME AFTER THIS EPISODE!!!!
