O.k. (just listened to first episode so far)

It's fun to have a podcast that specifically focuses on the original Transformers G1 episodes that I grew up on as a kid but, at least based on the first episode, I feel as though it is unnecessary to do a complete blow-by-blow synopsis of each episode and I think that his criticisms of the episodes are a bit on the "nitpicky" side. I remember how there were a lot of animation/voiceover flubs throughout the series but I think every animated series has issues like that. In terms of episode reviews, I was more interested in hearing what he had to say about the storyline/character developments more than the animation flubs. I will probably continue listening however to see how it progresses. I'm interested in hearing what somebody else has to say about the animated movie.

Good effort, but ...

Too much time spent on the synopsis of each episode, and too much time worrying about the various mistakes, flubs and lapses in logic. I mean how many times does one have to point out that Megatron's chest symbol is gray and not purple? It's clear he likes the property, but he takes too much of a cue from the World's Finest Podcast, which I had to eventually stop listening to because those guys just spent too much time picking apart every frame of each cartoon. Reviews should be 5 minutes, tops, unless you have something really interesting to say. But to spend a bunch of time explaining what happened in the episode, and then review it by pointing out a couple of animation flubs and moving on ... no. It may also help to listen to it and edit it so the burps, flubs and soundbite mistakes can be fixed before putting it up for download.

Starts slow, but ends strong

Michael Blanchard made his podcasting start with this title, and you can see how he matures as a host within the 24 episodes of this run. Although he gives adequate overviews of each Transformers episode in every show, TFG1Podcast really shines towards the end of the series. This is when the series changes from a single host (Michael plugging through scripted reviews) to a multi-host format (Michael and others chatting about Transformers). You can definitely see Michael taking on the podcasting learning curve here, and the set ends on a strong note with some really funny episodes.
