    Im surprised this hasn't gotten more love and attention.  While I am not a fan of the extremes Michael Bay will take most of the times, some of his visuals do have a big appeal.

    Soon as I see "Bayhem," I start having Robot Chicken flashbacks. "Michael Bay! 'Splosion! MICHAELBAYSPLOSIONS! SPLOSIONS! MICHAEL BAY-BAYSPLOSIONS!"

    Then I remember I actively dislike everything Michael Bay has done that I have seen. "Bayhem" is either a joke Robot Chicken already did, or it's a celebration of a director who's storytelling skills are terrible, and who stages action scenes with so much shakey-cam I lose the lines of action.

    Ah, screw it, I will watch this next time I am on my computer, not phone.

    Lol I completely agree with you on the actual story telling side.  That being said visually he can make a dynamic scene even before the explosions start.
