Also, those parents are pretty funny. Throw them in there too and give them lots of screen time.
They should just do a sitcom centered around the parents and Bumblebee. Have Starscream as their wacky neighbor, throw in guest appearances from Sam, Mikaela, and Optimus Prime during Sweeps, and you've got a winning formula right there.
There was a TV adaptation last year. It was called Knight Rider and it sucked ass.
I enjoyed the new Knight Rider
for what it was, but yeah, you're right.
