Tonight's way of passing the time on the coach journey: Transformers Volume 2 DVD (original series, including the classic Arrival From Cybertron trilogy). For some not so light background reading, try the Transformers Chronology, which unfortunately manages to consistently mispell 'Unicron', the moon-sized planet-eating (and still transforming!) robot in the movie, impressively voiced by Orson Welles. Not to be confused with the Transformers Adult Fanfiction Archive, which is very entertaining, extremely dirty, but probably not in continuity so (alas) must be disregarded by any serious connoisseur.
