    Default Transformers: Rescue Bots Academy on Nine Go!

    Transformers: Rescue Bots Academy starts at 7:00 AM on Nine Go! on Thursday 14th November 2019.

    Unfortunately I don't think Nine Go! ever showed the season 4 of Transformers: Rescue Bots, so there was no way to see it uncut.
    Transformers: Rescue Bots season 4 still isn't available on any of the local streaming services either, for some reason.

    I don't think Nine Go has played beyond season 2 yet... as it would be nice to replace my recorded "cut" copies of the season 3 and 4 episodes that were never released on DVD. (cut by cheeze tv by up to 2 minutes)

    Hasbro Australia only just let us know on Monday that the Rescue Bots Academy cartoon was coming in November at 7am... but didn't know what day it was starting, so I've been keeping an eye out for it on the TV guide.
    As soon as I check out the listings, I'll post it as news on our other sites.

    Watching today's episode, it is from the end of Season 2, with the last episode of that season screening on Wednesday... jumping into "season 5" with Rescue Bots Academy on Thursday.
    Maybe they don't have the rights to season 3 and 4 yet.

    Forgot to tune in yesterday but was able to catch the second ep this morning - cheers for the heads up! As predicted, very very little kid oriented.

    Yeah they did show all of the Rescue Bots episodes on TV here as we saw right to the end. It's mainly the first couple of seasons they keep repeating though.

    I watched the first four episodes yesterday, and it is definitely for a much younger audience... even to the point of making sure the rollcall of names is repeated several times early on.
    The character of Hotshot is annoying, constantly acting like an arrogant brat, which will appeal to kids who behave like that... but doesn't focus on him learning to be a better, more responsible person, so that the kids watching learn or be inspired by the benefits of being a responsible, reliable team-member. A flaw of the shorter 11 minute episode format, which doesn't allow for a proper 3rd act to plausibly resolve the situation and focus on the lesson being learnt.

    It might take a few more episodes to get a feel for it.
    Is it worth starting a review topic, or just have the couple of us watching this cartoon to just post occasional comments here, if anything significant occurs.

    Channel 11 (Toasted TV) played all four seasons (with parts cut out), but I don't think channel 99 (nineGo) have screened past season 2, as every time I check in on their screenings, I haven't seen any from season 3 or 4.

    Well that was fast.
    Thursday (two days ago) played the final episodes of the 52 episode season... and Friday was playing the first episode of season one of the original Rescue Bots cartoon (fingers crossed they play season 3 and 4 as well).

    I missed taping two of the episodes, but they should repeat them soon enough, so I'll keep an eye out when that happens.
    I've only watched up to episode 18, as they aren't that exciting to just sit down and watch, so I'll have episodes playing when I'm on the computer.

    I still have several episodes left to watch... but I'm up to where they introduce Grimlock as one of the Academy teachers.
    He doesn't appear to have a robot mode, as he's always shown in dino mode (the RBA toy has the dino mode transforming into a motorcycle).

    His voice is distracting... think Mr T.
