MS11 – Beast Machines



Nothing says “writing a direct sequel” like being forbidden from watching the original show.

This week, Michael and Peter discuss the totally atonal sequel to Beast Wars.

NOTE: The three-part “Revelations” episodes Michael was referring to are actually episodes 7-9, rather than episodes 6-8 as claimed.
