      Beast Wars - Cutting Edge is an episode that has some decent action, but other than that, does not really appeal to me. For one, I do not find Cheetor developing a crush on Blackarachnia or the tension that emerges between Silverbolt and Cheetor as a result to be the slightest bit interesting. Sure, it makes the show a little more realistic, but nothing is ever done with the one-sided crush because the writers clearly had no intention of splitting up Silverbolt and Blackarachnia.

      To me, it just does not add anything to the show. I did not feel bad for Cheetor because I simply did not feel his


      pain or his longing.

      Maybe if more effort would have been put into this crush and the friction between Silverbolt and Cheetor, it would have been more effective and added something to the show, but that did not happen. I also have no idea why Tarantulas is once again shown to be taking orders from Megatron when the character betrayed Megatron last season to Ravage.

      Is all forgiven?

      Megatron does not seem to be the type that tolerates such behavior, as shown later in the season with another Predicon. I also did not like the focus on the early humans in this episode.

      Megatron is still out to get ...


      • them, and so, the Maximals must defend them. Unfortunately, the early humans, which in the case of this episode are young kids, are quite uninteresting - they after all have not mastered verbal communication due to the humans stage of development at this point.

        They just make noises, jump around and idolize Blackarachnia and Cheetor. It is boring.

        Although this episode does show that Blackarachnia does indeed have a compassionate and soft side the way she sticks her neck out in the line of fire to save the kids. About the only thing that I liked about this episode was the battles and the foreshadowing that was used at

        the end for the next episode, in which Megatron who has been experimenting with new Transmetal two technology, decides that the Transmetal two raptors he created and unleashed on the Maximals only to have them be destroyed, is technology that needs a spark in order to be truly effective.

        He holds up a spark - part of Rampage’s spark. I thought that was a nice touch on the part of the writers.

        All in all though, this is an episode that I do not look forward to when it airs on television, aside from the scenes that feature fighting. The character moments and overall story are both real bland and forgettable.
