You seem to be in luck then. The first season of the show with
26 episodes is currently in heavy rotation on YTV, the syndicated
Power Block package, and various international markets. The
second season of 13 episodes is schedule to start airing in October.

Being a scalie I personaly like Dinobot Myself. It's nice to see a
reptile as a main charecter portrayed as one of the good guys.

oh man, I REALLY hate to be the one to break this to you, but....
based on the last episode I saw and the toys I've seen lately...
The Transformers will once again be vehicles (I think to be called "Machine
Wars")

Thats true and in the ones after optims died there was Sky Linx wich
was part dinobot and even tho I liked them better than the rest of the
transformers I still like the Beast wars Dinobot the best, Maybe it's
because he's modeled after a raptor, I always did like raptors.

James.
