Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman, the writers behind the first two "Transformers" movies, are now working on "Transformers Prime" TV series.
The duo has now released a funny video showing the making of this new animated show. At one point, Kurtzman comes up with a great idea, stating "What if Megatron barfs?" Orci doesn't like it and says that they should "save that for the movies, this actually has to be good."
The five-part "Transformers Prime" mini-series will premiere on Hub TV on November 29th at 6:30pm ET. Check out the video below.

Is this supposed to be a viral video? Because those should be funny. Or disgusting.
How about Optimus vomiting in Bumblebee's mouth and Bumblebee taking a dump on Optimus's head? Now that would be a viral!

what the f*ck is this, transformers meets the clone war.... This is just sad, transformers have enough demand to not just get another horrid film, but a mini series. How about they bring back the old cartoons instead or better yet, and I know this is taking a chance but how about come up with something original.

It's a sad day in the world of Transformers when the film Lenonard Maltin gave a turkey rating proves to be the high point of Transformer film cinema.
And Orci and Kurtzman were the worst writers, I believe, to take on the franchise. Terrible choice. Their humor is both vapid and stale, and at the same time, enormously juvenile.
The Bay films represent a wealth of truly lost potential for a variety of reasons, and this latest exploitation is just more digging.
And, Transformers Animated, from which the new Prime series decends, literally, was lame. It suffered from hideously silly stories, drawn poorly, with a sappy cast and medicore voice acting.
If they wanted to do something good for a change, hire talented and concerned writers to work on a CG/cell-shaded show along the lines of GI JOE Resolute.
