In traditional Transformer style this DVD sees Megatron and the Decepticons capturing 3 of the Autobots and holding them to ransom until the Autobots hand over the Omega Keys - ancient relics that give the holder ultimate power over Cybertron. Naturally a fight ensues and all manner of excitement and battling ensues.
The Darkest Hour DVD contains 6 episodes and is subtitled Season 2 Volume 4. The episodes are: Alpha/Omega, Hard Knocks, Inside Job, Patch, Regeneration and Darkest Hour.
The running time for Transformers Prime: Darkest Hour is 2 hours and 6 minutes and it has a rating of PG. The storylines can be a little more complicated than some children's stories, so it's no surprise that my 6 year old is more drawn into the show than my 4 year old, but they both would watch it for hours if I let them. The animation is CGI, so it's quite different to the original drawn series and really quite slick, it's nicely done and a lot less grainy. The storyline is actually really interesting and has enough detail to hold the attention of older children and even adults.
