After 35 episodes, I thought I was done with Headmasters. Then Vincent said I had to pick the top 10 funniest screencaps out of all of the episodes. That’s a lot of screencaps to look at. So I looked at each one and if it made me chuckle, it went into the potential pile. Out [...]
This is the final episode of the Transformers: Headmaster season. It’s been a long ride. I hope it’s been as fun for you to read as for me to recap. I’ll have some news at the end of this post about what’s next in the world of Transformers for The Robot’s Pajamas. For now, let’s [...]
Robocop. Part man, part machine, part cultural icon of the 1980s. For a ultra violent R rated flick, Robocop made a cultural impact that was so big that it’s hard to even contemplate now in retrospect. There’s just something about a cyborg cop that captured the public zeitgeist at the time.
I’ve already written a [...]
We’re here. The final 2-parter of the Headmasters, the fourth season of Transformers, which was produced in Japan. What better way to wrap things up than to transcribe the lyrics to the opening theme?
Head on! Head on! Head on!

We’re nearing this show’s end game. But before we get there, the Autobots are chasing the Decepticons to Earth and we pause for a showdown between the lead character on each side. This is “Duel on the Asteroid” and the excitement begins with Scorponok crusinging through space. Just smooth cruisin’. Probably playing a little yacht [...]
What happens when you take the best character from the Headmasters show and pair him with the worst character? Does one drag down the other? Does one bring the other up? Do they meet in the middle? You’ll have to decide. This episode is called “My Friend Sixshot!” and it begins with the Autobots chasing [...]
Last episode, the Decepticons successfully blackmailed the Autobots into getting blueprints to make a shield capable of defending against the Autobot’s greatest weapon: the master sword. They were on the planet Master which had the metal needed for the shield. This week, are they still there? Or will they move on to their next plan? [...]
Let’s take a break from the geek for a moment here and turn our laser like focus on the pop culture world of 1980s television. I recently watched the intros to the shows Taxi and Hill Street Blues and noticed something interesting.
For those not familiar, Taxi was a hilarious comedy running [...]
If you want my opinion, this was the most boring episode yet of the show. It’s called “The Zarak Shield Turns the Tide” but I don’t know how accurate it is. Last week, the Decepticons successfully blackmailed the Autobots into getting ahold of the blueprints to their greatest weapon: the Master Sword. This week, they [...]
I’m not sure what the theme of this week’s episode is but I do know its motif – pointing. The animators went pointing-finger crazy. It’s probably not a great sign when that’s the first thing I notice, but it is what it is. This episode is called “The Master Sword is in Danger” and it [...]
