OOPS! Looks like we forgot the spoiler alert. Well, it should be no surprise to any ’80s Kids out there that in 1986’s classic film Transformers: The Movie that Autobot leader, Optimus Prime, dies at the hands of the evil Megatron who leads the Decepticons.

This episode explains the importance of Prime’s death. Jonathan expands the discussion beyond Prime’s death as catalyst for the film. He touches on universal mythology, Star Wars, a bit of religion (not much…we promise), and our own mortality.

If you’ve never seen the film or if you don’t own it, we highly recommend you pick it up. Amazon has it at an affordable price.
