  • Not only are the viewers treated to more of the mysterious Predicon base in this episode, but also, the viewers get a chance to see Rhinox in a way that is definitely different
  • Not a favorite of mine, but one that I will not avoid watching, either

      Beast Wars - Dark Designs is yet another episode in season one where the Predicons come up with this game-changing device that ultimately is never seen again. In this episode, the Predicons develop a device that can forcibly transform a Maximal into a Predicon.

      The re-programming is thrust upon Rhinox, who was captured during a Predicon attack.

      Although the new programming seems to work, it has a side effect: the Predicon programming brought out Rhinox’s


      more confrontational and vicious side that was rarely seen as a Maximal.

      As a result, Rhinox begins to behave like a malevolent and sarcastic Predicon, thus proving to be a very real threat to the Predicons.

      While I find the premise of this episode to be somewhat shake - a device that is so powerful that it can override programming yet it is never attempted again, it is quite enjoyable to watch a hot-tempered Rhinox ...


      • move about the Predicon base and wreak havoc.

        Not only are the viewers treated to more of the mysterious Predicon base in this episode, but also, the viewers get a chance to see Rhinox in a way that is definitely different! It is an episode that is very light on character moments, although the Predicons are given more screen time than usual, so arguably, the they do benefit slightly from the increased exposure, but much

        of the focus of this episode is on the action and Rhinox behaving in a very aggressive and cocky way.

        It is a fun episode and it is just that.

        It is not heavy in storytelling or light on drama or contribute to any story arc, it is just a fun half-hour of action with some comedy thrown in here and there.

        Not a favorite of mine, but one that I will not avoid watching, either.
