      Beast Wars - Feral Scream, Part Two is an episode that suffers from the same problems that the first part did and quite unfortunately the problems are actually worse this time around. Visually, this episode is also not as impressive as the first part mainly occurred during a thunderstorm with rain and lightening and the setting was a rocky and dangerous mountainous region. Now as for the story and its problems, no matter how often I watch this episode, I cannot figure out why Cheetor does not go to Optimus for help, even though Optimus suspects that he is in need of it.

      He keeps what is happening to him bottled up and hides it. It makes no sense for him to do that, other than for the plot to play out


      the way that it does.

      Optimus is like a father figure to Cheetor, yet Cheetor does not go to him. I simply do not get it.

      I am also disappointed that Dinobot II is shown to not be as much of a threat in this episode as he was in the previous part. It reminds me of what the writers did with Rampage.

      In the episode Rampage was introduced, he seemed almost unstoppable he was so strong but in later episodes, his character seemed to be brought down in strength a couple of notches. The same happens with Dinbot II.

      He is shown to be incompetent, especially when facing Cheetor in beast form in his transmetal two state. When the two actually face off in battle, the battle is short, yet at ...


      • least it is somewhat intense as the two go at it in their beast forms.

        Again though, Dinobot II is shown to be a less competent and deadly force that he was presented as in the previous part. I also found it very odd how Cheetor was able to alternate between his transmetal form and transmetal two form since the forms are so different.

        Near the end, his transmetal two form wins out and causes an explosion that rips apart his transmetal form and reveals his new form. How he was able to alternate back and forth between these two fundamentally different forms is never explained and technically should not be possible.

        On some levels though, this episode does deliver, like during Cheetor’s nightmare, he fears that he is turning into to

        some bizarre and hideous creature, and I admit, the creature that is designed by the animators is pretty chilling! The nightmare works well and helps the audience better feel the fears and worries that are overwhelming Cheetor. I also liked how once Cheetor had undergone his transformation, Optimus had to reach out to him because his beast or “feral” side had taken over and Optimus had to help him re-establish control.

        This is similar to what happened in the first season episode “Call of the Wild” when the Maximals were forced to stay in beast mode for too long. Overall, the first part is definitely better, although part two is certainly not without its moments.

        It is just those moments are overshadowed by all the big problems that this episode has going for it.
