Daily reminder that Knock Out likes to dissect, experiment on and/or torture enemies.
Look how gleeful he is when Megatron tells him he has a new laboratory sample
Look at that dangerous, sadistic little beeb.
Reminder that this also happened in an episode where Ratchet tortured a miner…
For an evil medic Knock Out doesn’t do THAT much evil medicking and he’s still ahead in the putting bombs in people race.
You mean that Knock Out is ahead in a race of less-crazy since Ratchet is the first medic to be okay with putting bombs in possibly sentient beings when he’s not under the influence of
drugsSynth En? I think I know what you mean, I’m just double checking I understand the sentence correctly.
But yes, I like that for an evil medic Knock Out doesn’t seem to do that much evil medicking but more surprisingly traditional medicking? I like that layer of complexity.
Stronger Faster Triage - Or, Moral Messages Are Good When They’re Not Completely Textually Ignored
Today’s parallel review is Stronger Faster (01x22) and Triage (02x14), and those of you with a good memory for TFP might know where I’m going with this already.
That’s right, this is a pair of Ratchet-centric episodes, and I also have a love/hate relationship with Ratchet/his morality/the way he’s portrayed in general, so this is gonna be fun.
PS I’m not fond of Wheeljack either so if you like him a lot you might want to give this review a (swing and a) miss.
Thank you so much for this analysis. As much as I like Rachet and Wheeljack their actions in Stronger Faster and Triage irk me quite a lot. Breakdown’s line really irked me too and the scene where Arcee gets surrounded by vehicons in Stronger Faster is so awful and degrading. Did they really need to make a scene like that?
I suspect that Magnus has a great deal of respect for Ratchet due to the long time friendship between him and Optimus Prime when he was Orion Pax. So since Magnus was trained by Optimus, then obviously that respect for the Autobot leader extended over to Ratchet as well.
I’m guessing this is why Magnus doesn’t correct Ratchet into calling him “SIR”.
Magnus must respect Ratchet as an ace medic too. :)
I’m not sure how medics rank in the army, but I can’t imagine many soldiers getting picky with the dudes that save your life.
Raf: Where go on a picnic?
Bee: Beee pipipi!
Ratchet: … must prepare ENERGON.
