One transformer and during a battle in the first episode Megatron fires a weapon that makes the transformer unable to transform.
So the show becomes "Knight Rider" ish
Megatron's role will be walking back and forth his lair plotting away or being sent far away into space
In the sweeps period the transformer will transform at the last second only to give some crappy excuse about not being able to afterward.
Season finale- Megatron is Coming!
