Saturday Morning Cartoons: Autobots don’t ask… don’t tell.
I watched the Transformers growing up… and frankly, it never occurred to me what was going on. I mean, the signs were all there. The whole “fake war” over “energon”? C’mon people. How stupid was I? To believe that they were always at war with one another… Seriously! Look at the dang opening to the show. I counted no less than 7,423,209 shots of laser fire, and not one Autobot or Decepticon even gets so much as a scratch. They all just role play whilst the sexual tension builds on the battlefield.
Yeah. I said it. Sexual tension. Think about it. As long as there has been a Transformers television show, there has been the on-again off-again banter between them. The “hatred”. The “battles”. All this time, it was all just foreplay. It turns out Optimus Prime was in love with Megatron. No wonder no one gave two spark plugs about Arcee!
