My Thoughts:

My nephews and husband are huge fans of this animated series, which airs on The Hub TV Network.  And, whenever my nephews come to visit, my husband has a handful of episodes recorded, so that they can watch and talk about.  I have seen a few of the episodes and can see why fans both young and old of Transformers enjoy this popular series, as it contains cool Transformers, which are put on Earth to help protect the good people.  

Each of the five action packed episodes that make up this new release are about 20 minutes in length, which is great, as it keeps the attention of even the youngest of viewers.  And, while it is good to follow each episode of this series, you can watch any given episode and still understand the story line of protecting the good people of Griffin Rock.  All the episodes include the 5 Rescue Bots -- Chase, Heatwave, Blades and Boulder, and teach young viewers about the importance of teamwork and the power of friendship.  

While my husband and nephews are fans of this show, I have heard from my two older nieces who have watched this The Hub TV Network animated series, that it is fun and entertaining.  This past weekend when my nephews were over to watch this upcoming DVD release with my husband, Savannah sat with them to watch a couple.  When it came time for lunch, Savannah had already learned the 5 Rescue Bots names, and could tell me about what she had watched.  She loved seeing the robots transform, and help the people of Griffin Rock out.  I guess we have another Transformers Rescue Bots fan on our hands. :-)
