Transformers: Robots in Disguise is an action-based sci-fi show about…well, Transformers! Bumblebee (voiced by Will Friedle), Strongarm (voiced by Constance Zimmer), and Sideswipe (voiced by Darren Criss) go to Earth, and meet Fix-It (voiced by Mitchell Witfield) who had been in charge of a prison ship called the Alcamore.

Unfortunately all of the captives except one had escaped, and the last one ends up helping them capture a different captive, and later becomes a part of the team. (Grimlock, who is voiced by Khary Payton.) Basically the plot of the show is finding and capturing the runaway prisoners.

The show is interesting because it’s set in the future, but unlike most shows, it’s just a little ahead of modern times, maybe a couple of years or so where we’re a bit more technologically advanced.

Transformers:Robots in Disguise is my favorite show to watch on Netflix for the lack of drama in other popular shows and because I like watching and reading sci-fi.

I’ve watched all of the episodes of all three seasons because I like the show, but some people don’t. “I’ll only watch it if I see a Youtube video that referred to it and I’ll go check it out,” says Aaron Steverson, 8th grader.

“I dislike it only because it’s a branch off of Transformers Prime and it’s like 2Dish-3Dish. And Bumblebee has a voice and it doesn’t exactly fit,” Steverson also says.

An important thing to note is that Transformers:Robots in Disguise is part of an aligned continuity, along with Transformers:War for Cybertron, Transformers Prime, Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, Robots in Disguise, and a couple other products.

My personal favorite is Grimlock, because he’s a very interesting character. Having a background as a criminal fascinated me, despite the reason he was locked up was from property damage. I mean, how much property damage do you have to do to be put on a prison ship?! And he towers even over the other Transformers, yet is very klutzy, so I relate to him in that way as a klutz myself.

“I’m gonna go with Soundwave because I like how they kept his design and how his toy is like a car,” Steverson says.

You may be wondering, why the heck is this girl writing about Transformers? Well, I want to work for the Transformers section of Hasbro as an adult, and get to either draw or write for them.

So that’s what I think about the show!
